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 […]

Hacking Reality: Subjective Objectivity

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

As my 30-day subjective reality experiment concluded last month, I shifted to a different mode of living. I finally got used to seeing the world through a dream lens. It was seriously challenging to hold that perspective at first, but after a few weeks, my subconscious took over, and I no longer had to consciously […]

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

When you’re on a path of personal growth, inevitably you’re going to encounter some social resistance as you grow and change. For example, suppose you make major progress in improving your diet. Maybe you go vegetarian or vegan or raw. Or perhaps you find another path that generates positive results for you. And suppose most […]

Creating Your Vision

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

When you write down your goals, your primary aim is to create a new vision for what you desire to experience next in life, so that you can begin to make that vision a reality. So what do you do when you sit down to write a vision for your life, and you’re coming up […]

Master Your Workday Now

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

I recently had the privilege of reading the book Master Your Workday Now! by Michael Linenberger. I daresay this is the best book on workflow management I’ve ever read — and I’ve read a LOT of books on that subject. The book just came out this week, and last I checked it was in the […]

How You Give Your Power Away

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

One of the themes that repeatedly came up at the last Conscious Growth Workshop was the problem of giving your power away. Instead of focusing on your true desires, you erect false structures in front of your desires and then feed your power to those structures as a delay tactic. Here are some typical scenarios […]

11 Ways to Gain Clarity

Monday, December 21st, 2009

I’m sure you’ve read that clarity and focus are important qualities for success. Decide what you want, and then pursue it with passion and energy. But what if you’re feeling uncertain and don’t have a lot of clarity about your future direction? What if you can’t decide what you’d like to do next? This is […]
