Ah, Love. Do you want it? Do you need it?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Ah, love. We want it. We need it.           Here’s the thing. It’s everywhere. I know we believe that love is severely lacking in this world, but I strongly disagree. Quite the opposite, my love. Love is seen as a premium product because we are deeply attached to what we expect […]

The Shortest Path To Enlightenment: Challenging The Idea That Life Sucks

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Man, there is a lot of limited thinking and negative messaging out there in the world. I don’t cast judgement upon these sources of low vibes, I just notice that they exist and what comes at me when I’m within earshot. Life sucks.¬†Getting to work sucks. Being at work sucks. They suck. That sucked.¬†That’s going […]

Enduring The Journey Of “Self-Improvement”: Being Kind To Yourself When You “Screw Up” (Again)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Ah, the journey of a spiritual warrior. Choosing love over fear. Choosing the truth over the illusions. Choosing to reclaim your true nature over spending your whole life “stressed”. In our pursuit to be who we really are in this life, we spiritual warriors are desperately trying to stay “awake”. “Awake” as in paying attention […]

Leave The Rescuing To Cops, Firefighters, & Life Guards

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

I’ve learned a powerful lesson recently and that is to resist the urge to rescue people. Spiritual leader and author, Byron Katie, once said, (and I’m slightly paraphrasing) “There are three areas of business. Your business. Other’s people’s business. And the universe’s business. We suffer when we get involved in those two other areas of […]

Your “Personal Growth” Is Done, By The Way

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Your “growth process” is done. It always has been. You were done “evolving” the day you were born. When we pick up that self-help/spiritual book, attend that yoga class, join that drum circle, listen to that inspirational speaker, or walk on those burning coals, we aren’t growing…we’re actually remembering what we once knew and knew […]

There Is Nothing Going Wrong In Your Life (nor has there ever been)

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Sounds pretty far out, hey? Nothing wrong in your life…ever. Yep, you heard me. Perfection 24/7. Since day #1. Things being wrong versus being perfect is a matter of belief. What do you believe to be true about why you are you here? If it’s to be “successful” as the illusions of this world would […]

Positive Thinking Vs. Unconditional Love

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

I strive to crank out positive thinking and positive energy as much as the next person. Everything happens for a reason. Here we grow again! I will survive. What if while you’re exclaiming one of those cheerful sentiments, you’re absolutely furious with yourself for even having to deal with such a matter in the first […]

Accepting The Flux Of Life

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

I recently walked along the shores of Lake Huron with my mother. We were on a beach just north of the little town of Kincardine where her parents owned a cottage and she enjoyed many summers throughout her youth. Like other times before, we walked to the familiar point on the beach only to find […]
