There is a way to recall our past experiences without triggering any anger, resentment, or even judgment. Do not identify as "broken" or you will actually start believing that you are. The past is in your head. The future is in your hands.

Ill Will

4/30/2018
More
When you feel the impulse to hurt someone (or when someone hurts you), remember we can't soothe our own pain by placing it on someone else. In fact, I think we increase our suffering when we harbor ill-thoughts toward others.

Validation

3/22/2018
More
I used to rely on validation from other people in order to have a sense of self-worth, but that essentially meant I was in a co-dependent relationship with the entire world (think about it). Now my sense of value is up to me living a congruent life, striving to make sure that what I think, say, and do, are all in alignment. Give yourself the gift of true happiness, which isn’t contingent on outside validation, but on the goodness within. Namaste.

Pray Well With Others

3/5/2018
More
Setting the record straight that Buddhism is not a religion, not all Buddhists are vegetarian, we do not worship false idols, and the Buddha was not a God, the son of God, or even a messenger of God.

Knowledge vs Wisdom

2/10/2018
More
Perhaps the wisest thing we can do isn't to necessarily acquire additional knowledge, but to unlearn some of what we thought we knew in the first place. Let's hold what we know very lightly, without any grasping or attachment, for we might need to let it go someday.

Are you behind the wheel?

2/2/2018
More
If life is a road trip in the car, who is driving and deciding which path to take? Are you behind the wheel, or did you get on a bus with millions of other people, all living the same life, heading in the same direction, just sitting there... sometimes until the very last stop? We can get off the bus and change direction at any point if we're not happy with where we are, so the first step is to ask ourselves: who's driving, and are we happy with where we're headed?

It's not you, It's me.

1/27/2018
More
How I stopped blaming other people for the way I feel. The problem isn't frustrating situations or annoying people, it's that I keep getting annoyed and frustrated. It's not you.. it's me.

A Good Starting Point

1/17/2018
More
I was recently interviewed by Steve Prussack on his Juice Guru Radio Show, and this is a recorded portion of that live conversation. If you know someone who might benefit from the message and invitation in Buddhist Boot Camp, go ahead and send them this audio clip as a good place to start, or enjoy it as a good reminder.

Perspective, Progress, Purpose

12/24/2017
More
We either enjoy the ebb and flow of the tide, or we try to fight the ocean. Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional.

Don't Believe Everything You Think

11/4/2017
More
Our thoughts are rarely ever truly our own; they are shaped by the people around us, current events, and media exposure. Even when we think of something ourselves (or we think we do), it's important to remember that the mind is strangely capable of believing just about anything in order to avoid internal conflict.

Duration:00:04:16

Pray, Meditate, or Both?

10/24/2017
More
The differences and similarities between prayer and meditation, and how each supports the other.

Less is More

9/26/2017
More
Mindful money and time management, raising awareness of our habits, value assessments, enjoying the freedom that accompanies having less instead of more, and introducing joy to generosity. Do you have spending habits or investment habits? Your discipline reflects your priorities.

Duration:00:06:47

Is It True Love?

9/16/2017
More
If true love is unconditional, then if you only love someone because they love you back (or with the expectation that they always will), is it love at all?

September 2017 Q&A

9/13/2017
More
A couple of questions from this month's live stream. The first is about boundaries with an estranged family member, and the other is about the two ways in which we get our sense of self-worth and value. Prepare questions in advance for next month's live, video Q&A on Patreon, and I'll continue recording additional episodes in the meantime. Thank you for joining our live discussions.

Life is a Piece of Cake

8/28/2017
More
Before adding stuff to your life in an ongoing effort to make it better, contemplate what you can take out that's making it less than ideal in the first place. It could be a person, a job, a closely-held belief, perspective, attitude, opinion, etc.
