Letting Our Light Shine: Awakening to the Love Within & Without

As I've been witnessing the outpouring of kindness, compassion, humor, giving, understanding, and togetherness, amazing people like YOU have been sharing since the pandemic turned our worlds upside down, I realized: We're collectively making Love.  Not the way we usually use the phrase, but in its literal, and original sense.  We're making, creating, expanding, increasing, and growing Big Love, … Continue reading Letting Our Light Shine: Awakening to the Love Within & Without

Just Breathe

Just breathe.  The shifts and changes toward wellbeing that come from mindful breathing can be pretty dang wonderful!  By purposely inhaling and exhaling, we drop from our rational mind, and all its worries, regrets, plans, goals, and judgments, and into our spirit, the home of joy, peace, and Love.  Throughout history people have recognized the … Continue reading Just Breathe

Suffering’s Gift

I believe we're in a sacred, powerful, and beautiful moment of collective transformation now.  As tragic as the Coronavirus pandemic is, it's gift can be exponentially more beneficial.  I say this sincerely and confidently because each time I've walked the road of soul-shivering suffering, be it a divorce that shook my beliefs and world view, an accident that … Continue reading Suffering’s Gift

Enter Every Moment as If You Chose It

Enter every moment as if you chose it.  I remember years ago hearing an ER doc turned environmentalist speak about how observing the dramatic increase in cancer, autoimmune diseases, and more led him to research why, and conclude: We've been killing the earth with our pollutants, deforestation, pouring/placing toxins into the ocean, strip mining, etc., and in … Continue reading Enter Every Moment as If You Chose It

Fear, the Corona Virus, Staying Sane, and Loving Big

What do you do when fear comes a'knocking, or kicks the front door down like it did recently?  Buy ALL the hand sanitizer and toilet paper, like everyone here did?  Curl up in a ball (the energy I've felt this week)?  Pour all your attention and energy into _____?  Isn't it interesting how grasping, which … Continue reading Fear, the Corona Virus, Staying Sane, and Loving Big

The Transformative Practice of Becoming Your Own Favorite TV Show

One of the things I find adorable about my wife is she will often tell all our friends and family the same story about something that currently lights her up ... which means I get to hear it like a million times!  While I CHOOSE to delight in how Lisa will joyously share the same … Continue reading The Transformative Practice of Becoming Your Own Favorite TV Show

The Magic of To-BE Lists

I love to-do lists ... and I also hate them.  While they help me organize, prioritize, and remember to get things done, they also stress me out.  How about you?  In yoga's peak pose, Savasana, we practice doing less to BE MORE.  By simply being, our spirits are filled with greater contentment, clarity, confidence, calm, and … Continue reading The Magic of To-BE Lists

Dancing With Life Like a Jujutsu Master

I'm balding, need more sleep than when I was younger, am starting to grow hair in new and "fun" places like my ears, have all sorts of scars, and am getting evermore gray-haired and wrinkled.  When I dislike such physical and life changes in myself or others, I suffer.  When I yearn for something that … Continue reading Dancing With Life Like a Jujutsu Master

Gunas: A Yogic Path to More Life and Love

It's said the two biggest, and interrelated, questions in life are "Who am I?" and "Who is God?"  I don't know about you, but I find both endlessly fascinating and explorable.  In answering them, and transforming the first, the philosophy of yoga, in my experience, is an incredible gift.  For instance, while my abilities to … Continue reading Gunas: A Yogic Path to More Life and Love

Awakening to Your Wise Guide on the Inside

Where does wisdom come from?  How did, and do, I know my wife Lisa was "the one"?  My fingers and toes, heart, and mind all told me.  What I'm saying is there's a divine brilliance within each and every one of us; and we awaken to this deep wisdom when we open the channels to, and … Continue reading Awakening to Your Wise Guide on the Inside
