You can have it all. You can have things that are good for you and good for everyone else too.

You can have it all. You can have things that are good for you and good for everyone else too.

You can make your money so you can spend your money in the right ways. The choice isn’t success or monk, Buddha or lawyer; it’s far greater than that. Like all of us, you have desires for things that you don’t really need and are good for you. But don’t discard yourself for having them, also don’t think that every desire is tainted. Rather, think of your misguided longings is the bumbling amateur expression of a faculty that will one day before more expert. There are you practice as we work towards the goal of becoming a master of desire. It may take a while, but eventually you will get …

This is what God feels all the time.

This is what God feels all the time

We’re imitating the creators of the universe. Turning life into prayer. We pray for what God and goddesses pray for, which is different from what humans pray for. Prayers are the engine of creation. Our prayers, these prayers are life itself: – May this unfold in ways that send benevolent consequences out in all directions, diminishing the suffering and enhancing the joy of every sentient being. – May all beings get what they desire if it doesn’t harm another, by doing this may become a more potent force for beauty and truth and goodness, lifting up everyone they touch. – May this rebound to the benefit of all creatures, All …

Nothing Is Wrong With You

Nothing Is Wrong With You. I Repeat, Nothing Is Wrong With You.

Think of something you’re trying to change about yourself, are you coming from a place of acceptance or rejection? I repeat, nothing is wrong with you. The Personal Growth and Wellness Industries are Full of Shit A whole industry of coaching, websites, books, e-books, documentaries, $20 smoothies (this is not a joke, these are real -Erewhon) and coffee’s full of fat and monk tears that sell us a thousand different ways to help us change. Because we need changing. Most of them play on our self-rejection, marketing to the parts of ourselves that we disown while laying out a supposed plan to overcome them. Their common theme is the essence of …

Like Growth, Rot Is A Natural Phenomenon

Like Growth, Rot Is A Natural Phenomenon

We should be weary of things that never decay. We should be weary of the people or situations that always stay the same. Like forest fires, forest fires are essential to the health of a forest. Things must decay, things must burn down, it’s is essential to growth. What is stagnant in your life? What must you let rot so that the freshness below may flourish. Keep moving forward, keep growing. Have fun.

Where have you been?

Where have you been?

Here. There. Around. Right here. The thing about meeting someone who turns you on, who gives you life, who is the formula for joy; is that they were always there. It seems like you needed them and were looking for them and think that maybe they could have been there sooner. But they were here while you were there. They weren’t never not here. You and they were always moving towards each other. But as of a week ago, two days ago, a couple hours ago, a few minutes ago, until you saw that person, you didn’t know they existed. But they existed. They exist. That’s amazing. They are so …

Why Creativity Is Vital To Mental Health

Why Creativity Is Vital To Mental Health

Many of us have heard about the benefits of meditation, but sometimes find it hard to do.  Fewer of us know about the profound benefits of creative expression. Creating is another way to access a meditative state of mind and the profound healing it brings. “Art is a guarantee to sanity,” said Louise Bourgeois, a French-American artist who died in 2010 at the age of 98. She even went on to add, “…This is the most important thing I have said.” For Bourgeois, art was a tool for coping with overwhelming emotion. She says she remembers making small sculptures out of bread crumbs at the dinner table when she was …

You Can't Heal What You Won't Reveal

You Can’t Heal What You Won’t Reveal

What are you ready to reveal? Or, what needs revealing? What needs letting go? What story no longer serves you? What stories are we constantly telling? What’s our goal with our life point of you? What’s our intention with hanging onto this stuff deep down inside? Let it go, let it out. Tell your story.  Like the story of paying bills – is it a shitty or great thing? Is it wonderful that they trusted you and lent you something that you might’ve needed. Personally, without my student loans I wouldn’t be the man I am today,  I wouldn’t have witnessed, touched, experienced, and tasted the things I’ve tasted! I have a great great …
