Just Open The Door

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!How many times do you see what they can not see? That he/she is no good for them, that job makes them miserable, that they are addicted to the pain, that they probably should order seconds, that they spend money recklessly, that they drink too much, etc… We can’t just tell them, because they might not listen, they might not be ready to hear; and who are we? We can’t tell them, but we can show them. We can open the door and remove a window shade so they can see, but they must make …

“I know, I know.”

“I know, I know.” “I know, I know.” – you tell someone something that’s what you get, “I know, I know!” I know that you know, but do you believe? Do you own it? We don’t truly believe the things we know are true or right – and it’s not our fault – it’s because we haven’t seen them play out just yet. We haven’t seen them fulfilled or realized. We live in a goal orientated society, but it’s all about the middle, they gray, the little things. Do you truly believe with everything? That it will all be alright, that all you have to do is trust, accept, surrender, …

Honesty… Do Us All A Favor

Saying how we honestly feel. Saying what we honestly need. How many times a day do you get asked and or you ask, “how are you doing?” – and the immediate auto-pilot response is… “Good” Good, always good. Good or tired. I doubt you are just good, I doubt you are just tired- granted sometimes that’s all we are– but more often than not we are neither, we are so many more things: we are overwhelmed, we are vulnerable, we are sad, we are scared, we are anxious, we are loved, we are grateful, we are not good, we are not alright, etc… When was the last time you said …

The Need For Others

Like all things, in moderation. But necessary. One cannot find enlightenment alone – it can’t be found in a cave. The inner work must be done but sooner or later we are going to need the chance to practice love and kindness in and around the presence of others. All the peace, presence, stillness one has when they are alone are great, but if they are thrown out the window the second the get cut off on the highway, or meet an unexpected long line – that is where the work comes into play, where we learn our biggest lessons. “Allow the world to be your teacher” You need the …

Fats, Proteins & then more FAT

Primarily Fats. Great fats. A diet should be composed of %60 fat. Protein can only do its job when the Fat is there. The brain is fueled by fats, not sugars. Our bodies originally (cave man days) got all our energy from Fats and Greens – a.k.a Hunter Gatherers … The only form of Sugar was fruit – which was seasonal – which means it was a treat. 5 servings of fruits and vegetables… Cut out the fruit, think vegetables, vegetables, vegetables!!! At least half your plate filled with RAW VEGETABLES – Primarily GREEN. So, as you begin cutting your sugar and grain intake to ideally none (trust me, you …

Not Childish, Child Like

Child like soul Child like being Minds Imaginations Free spirits – There is nothing wrong with that! You are not childish, you are beautiful and powerful and oh so Child-Like! You are curious. You ask questions because asking questions is how you figure things out. Lots and lots of questions. You hated it when a grown-up told you, “We’ll see.” It’s still unacceptable. Don’t say it yourself. Your body was designed for throwing baseballs, shooting hoops, and jumping off diving boards and stuff. In the secret language of children, the word “fitness” doesn’t exist. It’s called “having fun.” Your world can be half-real and half-imaginary. Food is Energy. You eat …

Why Health Matters

Why it makes all the difference in the world. At the end of the day you are a human. If people are just go, go, go all the time they’re gonna’ burn out. You might be able to get something out of it but you’re not gonna’ be able to reach your full potential that way. There’s taking the time to give your mind a rest. People deny themselves that a lot. Sleeping. If you’re not sleeping right eventually the ideas are gonna’ stop. Sleep is vital. Taking the time to eat, clean, colorful and vibrant foods.  People in this country don’t get nearly enough healthy fats, my diet is …

Becoming A Great Giver

In order to become an even greater Liver. Giving is the way. Giving fully. Like the Artist who made it everything. The poet – gave to the poem. The lover- Gave all of himself in search of making the world feel nothing but love. The composer The thinker The writer Every great artist GAVE. Every great person, leader, thinker, human being GAVE. Before the beginning of time we were given everything, everything in total perfection from our creator, from our God. Now it’s time that we Give. Knowing that there is ENOUGH of everything to go around, now what do we do!? Where do we begin when the world is …

Now Thats A To-Do List!

The to-do list might be the secret to willpower, and it is certainly an essential tool of creativity, just take it from these folks:   Thomas Edison Circa 1888 Among Edison’s “things doing and to be done,” while he wasn’t busy inventing and scandalizing cinema, were: Cotton picker New standard phonograph Hand turning phonograph Deaf apparatus Electrical piano New expansion pyromagnetic dynamo Artificial silk Phonographic clock Marine telegraphy Chalk battery Ink for blind           Leonardo DaVinci                                                       John Lennon Hand …

Don’t Find, CREATE

This is how we manifest reality. We have to show up first. We don’t find a lover, We create them. We don’t find a friend, we create them. We want them to be kind, WE must be kind. We want them to be warm, WE must be warm. “The karma you plant is the karma you get.” They should take care of us, we should take care of the world. They should treat us special, we should treat the world special. It starts with Us. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus, Martha (Lazarus’ wife) said to Jesus, “Where were you? He’s been dead for two days” Jesus replies, “Martha, do you believe?” …
