Never Surrender To Distraction!

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Personally, I do, all the time. And I have to remind myself (all the time), pretty much everything I interact with is trying to distract me, trying to take me from myself, trying to sell me something, an idea or a product. Just think about how much we spend on our phones. Distracted time checking-in, feeding on feeds and scrolls, and we still find ourselves feeding. How much of that distracted time can we put towards being in the world, towards being engaged with others, towards being with ourselves, being engaged with ourselves? I …

Inside my body is the energy of 30 Hydrogen bombs

Inside my body is the energy of 30 Hydrogen bombs

All physical matter as we know it is made of energy. And all physical matter can be converted back into energy. And it takes a tremendous amount of energy to make even a single particle of matter. In the human body there is 7 x 10 to the 18th power jewels of energy… Which translates and is equivalent to 30 Hydrogen Bombs. Inside my body is the energy of 30 Hydrogen bombs. This is a fact. Right here right now I have the power of 30 Hydrogen bombs, and what am I gonna do with it? What are you gonna do with it?   If you find joy and value …

Your Desire For Love Will Just Keep Coming and Coming and Coming

Your Desire For Love Will Just Keep Coming and Coming and Coming

I invite you to meditate on the relentlessness of your yearning for love. Recognize the fact that your eternal longing will never leave you in peace. Accept that it will forever delight you, torment you, inspire you, and bewilder you — whether you are alone or in the throes of a complicated relationship. Understand that your desire for love will just keep coming and coming and coming, keeping you slightly off-balance and pushing you to constantly revise your ideas about who you are. Now read this declaration from the poet Rilke and claim it as your own: “My blood is alive with many voices that tell me I am made …

Stories Have The Power To Move Us

Stories Have The Power To Move Us

The woman next to me on the plane just fist pumped, a powerful and unapologetic fist pump when the basketball went in the hoop during a game of one on one between the good guy and the bad guy on The CW’s “One Tree Hill.” It was the last shot, slow motion, and he (our hero) sunk it and she clenched her fist and pumped it! She was happy. Happy for our hero, happy for her, happy on the inside. She was happy. Stories have the power to move us. To make us happy. To make us fist pump no matter where we are. To make us smile. To move …

Calm Your Curls (a Dominican boys hair journey through Hollywood)

Original Article My grandma used to say, “tu eres el mejor actor en todo el Mundo.” She was right, I’m a pretty great actor, the best in the world is a big statement, but sure, thanks Grandma. Oh, and watch out Denzel. But my Grandma didn’t know the rules and walls I would be up against. Honestly, neither did I. “Mission number 1 in LA: Go unnoticed, sort of, blend in. Not too edgy. Not too soft. Be you, if you are something we all see you as, make sense? It’s tough. Be the best and stand out while blending in. Got it? It takes time, practice, and thick skin, …

It’s Not What’s Happening. It’s How You Relate To It.

It’s Not What’s Happening. It’s How You Relate To It.

You can’t solve a problem on the same level is created. – Albert Einstein What’s really happening here? What’s here? What is really here? It’s Not What’s Happening. It’s How You Relate To It. It’s how much strength and power you give to the story. Our stories are a map, but they are not reality; a map, not the territory. They are real but not true. They will confine us or they will wake us up. This is true for a break up, a personal sickness, or your money in the stock market. What story are you telling? The, “this shouldn’t be happening story?” or the, “this is happening story?” …
