Living Your Life Purpose

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

You may recall that a few months ago I did a survey to see what kinds of products people would be interested in seeing me create. Among other insights this provided, it helped me see what the most requested topics are. Where do people need the most help? One of the top requests in that […]

Waking Up

Friday, May 20th, 2011

What does it mean to wake up and become more conscious? Let me share some perspectives that should make it easier to understand the process of waking up. The Cellular Perspective From the cellular perspective, you can see yourself as an individual person interacting with other individuals. You’re like a single cell in the larger body […]

Help Wanted (the Serious Version)

Monday, April 11th, 2011

My April 1st Help Wanted post generated a wide range of reactions. As many people figured out, the post was indeed an April Fools joke. I thought up this idea 3 weeks prior when I decided I should finally do an Aprils Fools post. This idea seemed like the perfect combination of various things I’d written […]

The first method is to define your outcome and then dive right into massive action. Adjust your approach along the way, and keep going until you get there. This approach is easy to begin, but as […]

Focus and Discipline vs. Caring

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

After yesterday’s post on Life Purpose and Values, I saw some questions about why I dropped values like focus and self-discipline from my list. Are these values no longer important? Or do I feel I’ve mastered them to such a degree that they I don’t need to consciously think about them anymore? Actually it’s neither. […]

Life Purpose and Values

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

It’s been years since I last updated my life purpose statement and list of values. The last time was around 2005. My life has changed tremendously since then, and I’ve fallen out of sync with the old versions, so I invested some time this week in soul searching and introspecting to update these items. The […]

Spirit

Friday, November 19th, 2010

You’ve taken many painful lumps Survived life’s tearful turns Endured some brutal bruises, bumps, And saintly savage burns Be grateful for the strength you’ve gained Your inner muscles bulge But lips are drained and legs are chained By fears you still indulge Your animator kept from view Locked up inside a cell It pleads release […]
