John and Mary

John and Mary

Imagine my right arm is Mary, and my left is John. Only Mary and John don’t know they’re one body, they think they’re separate. One day John gashes himself. Mary looks at all the blood dripping and says, “Yuck, get that mess away from me.” Or she thinks: I’m not a doctor, if I try to help John I’ll get dirty, or I’ll get sued. What happens? John dies, Mary dies, I die. But one day Mary and John go through an epiphany, or a great enlightenment experience, and they realize they’re one body, they’re Me. So now when John gets hurt, Mary doesn’t even think about it. She goes to …

If Everyone Around You Is Doing Well - That's a Good Thing

If Everyone Around You Is Doing Well – That’s a Good Thing

It means you are in good company. What’s that saying, “Judge a man by all the people around him, the ones he spends time with most.” “but what about me? Where are my riches, where is my break?” I get it, I do. But you must be diligent in erasing that old unnecessary tape that plays on repeat. That tape is a lie, their success is your success. if you stay diligent, if you keep going. Just look at those around you. In my own life, everyone I know is doing really well. Really well. Making money. Learning. Growing. Dreams coming true. Loving. Falling in love. Being in love. Making life …

I Stay Away From Anything Too Human

I Stay Away From Anything Too Human

I quickly realized easy on in life that all of what I loved in this life was way beyond human. That the things I wanted to feel and comprehend and be inside of were the things beyond my comprehension, the things I didn’t know, the things beyond the horizon, beyond my knowing, the invisible stuff makes life richer and gives me life beyond life and a constant awareness of the death of all things; constantly killing what I think I know and giving birth to what I know I know.  So, to this day, I insist and know, that I am not concerned with the human. Will you join me?   If you find joy …

Don't compare your practice reel to their highlight reel.

Don’t compare your practice reel to their highlight reel.

That’s just dumb… ESPN has crafted a 16 billion dollar business by taking an hour and a half- to 2 hours of game footage and condensing it to as little as 30 seconds. Just the highlights. Just the good stuff. The ooohh’s and the aaahhh’s.  Instagram has done this as well; except we’re the editors, we’re the ones condensing hours and days and months of footage and practice time and hard work and effort and the boring stuff and  the no’s and the lost moments and turning it into one or two images we choose to share.  The problem is most people don’t realize this. You don’t realize that when You’re going through your feed looking …

We Need To Turn Off Our Devices

We Need To Turn Off Our Devices

And we must close our eyes. When the screens in front of us go blank, we have a better chance to become aware of another screen, a screen “behind our eyes,” the screen of the mind. Then, if we sit quietly, watching the breath or reciting a holy ones or lovers name, that inner screen will empty out until it appears formless and radiant. And once we make contact with this bright, empty mind, our craving for fresh screens comes to a stop. We enter a state, where we have nothing to achieve and nowhere left to go.  Eventually you might or might not return to the phone, when this occurs, …

I Can Die At Any Time, In Any Place

I Can Die At Any Time, In Any Place

Anyone can die at anytime and anyplace. That’s a fact. Nothing that we think we are, do, feel, or have has any essence, substance, stability, or solidity when it all melts away. All the somethings in and around us with which we occupy ourselves with from morning to night, in a moment are nothing to us if we die. When we die, they will dissolve our tight grasp, be forgotten in our minds, lost in our hands, fallen into a numbness out of our mind and body.  Once we become aware to the ever present possibility of death, we become liberated. We realize that we are essentially free at all times …

Consciousness Becomes Everything It “Touches.”

Consciousness Becomes Everything It “Touches.”

Like, when you rear-end the car in front of you and you were surprised, because you thought you were the cellphone. Seems foolish, but, that’s how it goes. What we touch, what we place in our path, is what we become. So, what should we be putting in front of us? What should our foremost consciousness touch, adopt, and become? I see that is a pretty simple formula for becoming the thing we wanna be. If you want love put love in front of you, put yourself in love. If you want time this, put kindness in front of you. Does it feel like the world is crumbling and ending and …

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? I don’t know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? If you find joy and value in what I do and share, …
