Say Thank You

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Your assumptions about the lives of others are in direct relation to your naïve pomposity. Many people you believe to be rich are not rich. Many people you think have it easy worked hard for what they got. Many people who seem to be gliding right along have suffered and are suffering. Many people who appear to you to be old and stupidly saddled down with kids and cars and houses were once every bit as hip and pompous as you. When you meet a man in the doorway of a Mexican restaurant who …

Fake It Till You Make It

Has some validity It’s being the person you want to become. It’s living in your highest self right now. It’s not being blinded from this beautiful present because of a future you want. It’s being the movie star in this moment. Being that amazing dancer right now. Being that philanthropist, the rock star- entrepreneur-sustainable-thinker- philosophizer-published author right now! Tomorrow might not come. How we create it? We live it. How we manifest it? We own it, in our breath, every second. We fake it till we make it by surrounding ourselves with it- everywhere. We read books about it, put up pictures and quotes, we write it down over and …

With What Measure Ye Mete

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. – Matthew 7:2 If we could truly understand for a moment the meaning of these words, they would turn our everyday conduct inside out, and so change us that, in an instant (I mean that), our closest friends would hardly know us, our blood left wondering what happened? The plain fact is that it is the law of life that: As we think, and speak, and act toward others, so will others think, and speak, and act toward us. Everything that we do to others will sooner …

What is the “Good Life”?

What they tell us it is? A large house, bottles of champagne and fast cars. Being in the limelight. Watching what they tell  us to watch, listening to what they say is good. Or… Giving back, feeling whole and grounded. Being grateful for every moment. Excited because we earned our rest, excited to wake up to a new and blessed day where we can tackle something fresh and exciting. Mar­tin Seligman’s great book “Authentic Happiness” he says: “‘What is the good life?’ In my view, you can find it by following a startlingly simple path. The ‘pleasant life’ might be had by drinking champagne and driving a Porsche, but not …

You Don’t Have To Wait

  We don’t have to wait, we never did. There are these things called moments and they happen all the time. The crazy part is that each one is brand new, and brings with it nothing of the past, nothing! So every second we have the chance (should we accept our mission) to live brand new. To forget our failures, to leave behind our fears and worries, to bury our doubts, and to be free. We don’t have to wait – not anymore. It’s here, right now, and again, and it just happened, and it keeps happening, begging you to let go and grab on to RIGHT NOW. What’s stopping …

Ripple me happy

Excuse Me, Who are you?

What if we forgot everyone we knew? Or forgot everything we thought we knew about a person? If we treated everyone BRAND NEW. If we shut off the tape in our heads that plays what we think they might say, what we expect them to do, destroyed the tape with all those preconceptions. What happens then? In a world brand new, where we are constantly learning an discovering, and not judging or assuming. What happens then? I challenge you to forget what you thought you knew and go learn someone in a new way. … If you enjoyed this article Please Consider SUBSCRIBING.

How Are The Children?

Among the most accomplished and fabled tribes of Africa, no tribe was considered to have warriors more fearsome or more intelligent than the mighty Masai. It is perhaps surprising, then, to learn the traditional greeting that passed between Masai warriors: “Kasserian Ingera,” one would always say to another. It means, “How are the children?” It is still the traditional greeting among the Masai, acknowledging the high value that the Masai always place on their children’s well-being. Even warriors with no children of their own would always give the traditional answer, “All the children are well.” Meaning, of course, that peace and safety prevail, that the priorities of protecting the young, …

I’ve Been Set-Up!!

My whole life has been a SET-UP for right NOW. A set-UP for greatness, for success, for living life to its fullest.I have been generously set-up! The traffic ticket I couldn’t afford. The long line at the supermarket. The job I didn’t book. The break-ups. The petty bickering. The getting angry about nothing. The worry, the fear. The tears, of joy & sadness. The suffering. The unforgettable nights. The days that couldn’t end soon enough. They have all been a set-up, for right here, right now! How can I grow from this? How can I choose to use this to my advantage? All a part of the plan. Placed HERE …

ENOUGH

The Fear of “Not Enough”. The fear that WE are not enough. Everybody feels it – The Successful and unsuccessful, the alive and fulfilled, the empty. This deathly feeling of not enough. Everybody feels this in some context: Not rich enough Smart enough Playful enough Pretty enough Strong enough the list goes on… Now when we feel worthless there is no deeper fear than us being not enough; and because we are not enough we cannot possibly be loved; but only we can judge our self-worth, no one else. We are ENOUGH and so much more. Say it, Out Loud. Own it. The world is yearning to LOVE you, all …

Ask yourself

Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter? Did I grow? Did I learn? Did I break rules? Did I breathe? Did I slide in head first at least once? What will my obituary say? How will I be remembered? Did I do everything I wanted to do? What do i want out of this life and why do I think I can’t have it? What am I doing that I don’t love? These are the questions that matter. These are the questions that grab our veins and shake the dust, shake us from the inside. These are the thoughts that begin to tear down walls, move mountains, tilt the axis …
