Lack Of Clarity and Lack Of Understanding Is Always Painful

Lack Of Clarity and Lack Of Understanding Is Always Painful

In the fall, you don’t grieve because the leaves are falling and dying. You say, “isn’t it beautiful!” Our lives are the same way. There are seasons. We all fall sooner or later. Hard moments happen to us at one point or another. It’s all what it is. It’s beautiful to be a leaf, to be porn, to fall, to give way to the next, to become food for the roots. It’s life. Always changing its form and always giving itself completely. All doing its part. No mistakes. When the rough moments happen to us it’s our story that brings the lasting pain. When we tell our story, we realize …

Porn Is Killing Your Imagination

Porn Is Killing Your Imagination

If you are an artist, anyone, but especially an artist, you must stop watching porn. It is not inspiring you, it is telling you a one-sided story about what it means to make love. Making love and having sex is one of the most creative task imaginable; and unfortunately we have been saturated with a handful of ways in which it should look, feel, and sound. Boys and girls, young and old, confused; they don’t know what they want, they don’t know what they like, what feels good to them, because this image is playing in their head over and over and over again, they cannot separate themselves from the …

5 Tips For A Successful Meditation Practice

5 Tips For A Successful Meditation Practice

1. Create an event on your calendar with specific times for your meditation. I recommend 2-3 times per week to begin. Saying you’ll do it everyday if that’s not where you’re at would be tough. The goal is continuation, whether at home, a studio, in your car, or outside even for just 5 minutes a day. 2. Experiment. Beginners should be experimental.  Try different types of meditation, mindfulness, mantra, Qigong, tapping, breathwork, sound baths, sitting, lying, breath etc. Exploring the different modalities keeps it interesting and you will likely vibe more with one than the other. I’m a breath and mindful breathing guy myself. 3. Make the time. If Kobe, Oprah, Arianna and Bill …

The average American child sees 20,000 simulated murders before reaching age 18.

The average American child sees 20,000 simulated murders before reaching age 18. This is considered normal. There are thousands of films, television shows, that depict people doing terrible things to each other. If you read newspapers (who does that anymore?) or the Internet, you have every right to believe that bad nasty things compose 90% of the human experience. The authors of thousands of books published this year will hope to lord you into the glamour of killing, addiction, self hatred, shame, betrayal, extortion, robbery, cancer, and torture. You will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, new stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life …

Stories build us up or they tear us down

Stories build us up or they tear us down

I am doing whatever you say I’m doing. I am your story of me, no more no less. This is how some people and their concepts stick inside of our heads, because our story around them is that they are inspiring or motivating or repulsive. I am your guru if that’s your story of me. I am your enemy if that’s your story of me. Byron Katie says, “There’s no one out there but your story,” in her book loving what is. You tell one story of your partner and you turn yourself on. You tell another story of your partner and you turn yourself off. Uninvestigated stories often leave …
