Inspirational Perspective on Life, Love, and Self Mastery

You Are Not Just a Human – You Are Everything All At Once.

I entered this physical world on September 11, 1979. I have always assumed I was conceived on New Year’s Eve 1978 so, I suppose that is the night I began this journey. It is also the night I began gathering information.

Not a day has gone by without my brain gathering information that I will ultimately carry with me in this experience.

I want to discuss something that I rarely write about — even considering it’s something that I think about daily. The topic I am referring to is God — what is God?

Does Time Heal all Wounds? What Wounds and What is Time?

April is here.
I am here.
You are here.
So – what time is it where you are?
What’s the universal time?

What is the deal with time?

Specifically, the phrase, “Time heals all wounds.” This is one of those phrases that, I believe, is responsible for the disempowering effects that our language has produced.

Politics and party hats

I thought I’d start the day by jumping in on the political opinion-party. I see all of you sporting those smooth party hats as you post your thoughts on Facebook — while you may or may not know, I am a party hat collector and self-assigned critic.

So…

I cannot sit in silence any longer – give me one of those sweet party hats.

The Genetically Engineered Human Organism

flowersGreetings, my friend. I hope this post finds you feeling well and your cosmic vibrations are resonating at a high level. I hope your creative energy is being spent in a way that gives you a sense of purpose and pride.

As humans, we are directly connected to our environment. By connected, I am referring to a dependence upon the vitamins and minerals it produces naturally. In turn, the environment is dependent upon us to consume its resources. We come from the same process of creation and all of it, our physical shells and the consumption we require, are all connected. Consumption includes everything from the air we breathe to the food we consume.

Create Time for All of Your Passions – Not Just One.

Music is Everywhere

I started drawing recently. (The picture to the right is a drawing I did last week) I’ve always enjoyed sketching random things during idle moments or while chatting on the phone. But, the last couple of weeks has been more involved than that. In fact, this is the first time I have sat down to write in 5 days.

During this 5 day stretch, I did a lot of thinking while the pencil (and erasers) danced across the paper. Moments of inner-chemical warfare. Moments of pure bliss. Moments of feeling like I am merely creating a new version of resistance. Moments of embracing this newly found talent and running with it. Moments of wondering how I could balance music, writing, and drawing to where I can maintain full focus on all of them simultaneously — and this is where I am tonight.

Character Differences and Religious Beliefs Should Not Divide Us.


You and I are connected in ways beyond our comprehension.

Beautifully mysterious, isn’t it?

You and I are working together subconsciously — all the time.

What that work is, I can’t say for sure but, I do know we have a common purpose.

I wish I could explain it. It would make things easier, wouldn’t it? But, as you and I both know — we aren’t meant to fully understand it. Not yet…

It’s Difficult to See Life’s Perfections When You’re Focusing on Imperfections.

butterflyI heard a quote recently that has impacted and inspired me. Steve Jobs quoted it in a speech but, I do not know the original source — the quote is this:

“If you live each day as if it were your last, one day you’re sure to be right. “

I have read and heard many great quotes over the years but, there is something about this one that feels like a left jab to my chin. Something that has one motive – and that motive is to wake me up to what it means to be fully alive and experiencing this ride.

The path to greatness is littered with failure

How do you define greatness?

What does it look like? What makes it seem so elusive? I’ll tell you the answer to all 3 of these questions right after I tell you this:

When my time is up — My tank=E and my work=complete.

The Power of Choice and Sacrifice.

butterfly9:57 PM on October 29th, 2015.

I finished eating a grilled cheese sandwich about 20 minutes ago.

I rinse off my plate, put my kitchen to bed and walk to my living room. The fire is still glowing. The one lamp in the corner of the room is still on; I prefer that lamp over the main light because it gives the room a nice feel. It’s soft light but gives enough light to move around without bruising up my chins.
It’s quiet. I feel calm. I am no longer hungry. I stop and check-in with myself:

What is 1+2? 

 is the value of 1? 

 is the value of 2? 

 we take the value of 1 and add it to the value of 2, what is the outcome? 


Given what we have learned throughout our lives, the value we get is 3. Now, my question is this – Do you accept this?
