30 Days of Inspiration Recap

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

My 30 days of inspiration trial ended on Sunday, so I’ll do my best to sum up the overall experience, trying not to repeat what I’ve already shared along the way. Acting on Inspiration Acting on inspiration in the moment, as opposed to planning things out in advance, was a very different way of living […]

Life in a Dream World

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Today is Day 24 of my 30-day inspiration experiment, which also includes viewing everything through the lens of subjective reality. In this update I’ll share a number of observations on what it’s really been like to view life as a dream for more than three weeks straight. A Roller Coaster of Emotions Throughout this trial […]

Dream Lovemaking

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

One thing I was very curious about was how the dream world perspective would affect my experience of physical intimacy. Would it seem very different if I knew that the woman was a character in my dream world, a projection of some part of me? This past weekend I had a chance to enjoy some […]

Subjective Relationships

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

“What is the primary goal?” “You should know, Professor. You programmed me.” – War Games Well… this 30-day trial of inspiration is absolutely amazing. I’m so far down the rabbit hole of subjective reality that I can perceive little else but rabbits now. And there sure are a LOT of rabbits down here! Today is […]

Inspired Living feat. Subjective Reality

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

This is Day 8 of my 30 days of inspiration trial. Some people mentioned that I seem to be doing two overlapping trials here. First, I’m doing 30 days of acting promptly on inspiration whenever it strikes. Second, I’m also delving more deeply into the subjective reality frame. So what’s that all about? I honestly […]

Inspiration vs. Expectation

Friday, July 30th, 2010

This 30-day inspiration trial is almost too strange. I feel like a blind man excitedly examining a rainbow. There’s definitely something there, but I’m not sure I have the faculties to make sense of it. I feel a bit foolish trying to explain it. It’s tough to translate the experience into words; words alone can’t […]

Apparently there’s a lot of interest in this 30-day inspiration trial. My various e-inboxes have been surging with messages expressing support and curiosity. Many of them have to do with the subjective reality aspect of this trial, so that’s what I’ll address in this Day 6 update. Inception Let me get this out of the […]

30 Days of Inspiration

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Today is Day 5 of my 30-day trial of inspired living, as I explained in the previous post. If you missed that post, basically I’m testing what it’s like to live without thinking or planning ahead. I’m living in the moment and doing my best to act on inspiration whenever it comes to me, riding […]

An Inspirational Week

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

I spent last week in Santa Fe, NM for a Transformational Leadership Council retreat. These TLC retreats are held twice a year, and this is the third one I’ve attended. It was also the largest, with about 80 members (out of a total of 114) present. The atmosphere at TLC is like a big family […]

How to Build a Stronger Ego

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

There’s a notion that’s been spread around the spiritual side of the self-help field that suggests one of our primary aims in life should be ego-less enlightenment, a state where we achieve near-perfect inner peace, where we’re one with everything but attached to nothing, and where nothing in the physical world can knock us off […]
