​ How Many Things Can We Be Aware Of All At Once?

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Can we be conscious of the forgotten The suffering The alone The men and women in prisons The hungry The betrayed The lost… Can we be aware of them all? They are part of the planet, they are human, they are flesh and blood, they love and suffer and worry and love to laugh and be in joy. They are in this meal and in this traffic. They built this highway, they manufactured this plastic container, they made me tires and a car; they are here. How can I be aware of them all? How …

All We’re Ever Doing Is Creating Or Destroying

Everything on a Macro and Micro level. We are making, creating, composing, building or tearing down, killing, melting, destroying. Creating our lives, our careers, our lunch, our 1 year plan, our bodies, our minds, our heart, our dinner, our portfolio… Destroying a word we no longer need to use, a story that doesn’t serve us, a relationship that has reached it’s point, a habit that is more harmful than helpful, a friend that is more frenemy then friend. So, what are we creating and what needs destroying? What are we destroying that really needs creating? What are we creating or think we are creating that needs destroying? This is the question …

Judge A Person By The People Around Them

Judge A Person By The People Around Them

We’ve heard it before, “Want to know a man/woman, see who he hangs out with most.” “Judge a man by all the people around him, the ones he spends time with most.” At this moment, everyone I know is doing really well. Like, really well. Making money. Learning. Growing. Dreams coming true. Loving. Falling in love. Being in love. Making life and promises and commitments and having fun. This has the potential to be a very dangerous thing. To feed on my ego, to prey on my weaknesses and fear and jealousy; “why them and not me?” Or, I can celebrate it, because they are the people around me. I can …

The Ultimate Guide To An Anti-Inflammatory Shopping List

The Ultimate Guide To An Anti-Inflammatory Shopping List

A Guest Post From Our Friends Over At Positive Health Wellness: Inflammation is a normal response by the immune system. When used properly, it can aid the healing process. However, more often than not the immune system attacks healthy cells. The immune system is confused over the cells and components that are good and bad for the body and acts thinking that it is doing you some good. Some irritants can also cause inflammation of the skin and areas of the body like the digestive system. When our bodies do become inflamed, there is excess pressure placed on the nerves. Circulatory systems are narrowed, and the brain is told that …

The Heart Of Darkness Lives Within All Of Us

The Heart Of Darkness Lives Within All Of Us

​“I could be Adolf Hitler”… Is simply the truth. I could be, with the right conditions and the possible draw of the card, I too am capable. It’s not to crazy to believe; that each one of us is capable, somewhere, in someway, of the madness we condemn. By acknowledging this universal truth, we can shatter the walls of the ego that divide us from others. Only when we can confront the ‘heart of darkness’ that lives within all of us. Prince Siddhartha became the awakened Buddha when he saw his own dark heart and mind, rather than merely his “potential.” It is only when one identifies totally with their …

Your Awareness Will Set You Free

Your Awareness Will Set You Free

Thich Nhat Hanh states, “When I have a toothache, I discover that not having a toothache is a wonderful thing. That is peace. I had to have a toothache in order to be enlightened, to know that not having one is wonderful. My nontoothache is peace, is joy. But when I do not have a toothache, I do not seem to be very happy. Therefore to look deeply at the present moment and see that I have a nontoothache, that can make me very happy already.” ​It is our awareness that sets us free! In other words, think of it as having “Vuja De”…Vuja De: The opposite of Deja vu – …

We Are All One In The Ocean Of Life

We Are All One In The Ocean Of Life

​The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer – Gandhi Like individual droplets of water merged to form the ocean, we are all one in this life. The consciousness I hold flows through the drops around me. When collective consciousness unites together in belief, cause, or nation, it may form flowing ripples or crashing waves in the world in which we live. World peace is a worthy goal and even more important, a state of consciousness. As I affirm thoughts of peace, those thoughts ripple out to the world around me. I choose to live in peace with all humankind, and …

​ Help me

​ Help me

I’ve been told I belong to the people. I’ve been asked to come here to help raise consciousness, and to be completely honest, I don’t even like anything that much. SO I need help. I don’t know who to ask help of… So I ask everyone. I ask mystics, I spend $160 for an hour of present consciousness and inspired good, it works, sort of. I ask the flowers of remembrance and forgetting. “Poppies, help me to cut chords.” I ask, “Arch Angel Micheal remove the blocks and take me to a new place, remind me that I do deserve happiness and health, even though I’m really not yet perfect.” …

​ A Fresh Take On Some Classic Words

​Sensitivity: Let’s talk about becoming sensitive to the amazing harmony in the way the universe is put together. This is an elegant and charming universe if we make the space to recognize it.  Sensitivity is the ability to walk in the world while simultaneously being available to the world. Allowing the world to move you. In a fresh way, to see how are you haven’t yet seen, hear what you couldn’t hear, and BE in a new and present way. Time: (The hidden hand that holds all things). Time is an illusion and possibly trap. All of us with watches are on different time, even if they both say 11:11, the seconds …
