Failure, the Other F Word

Life is difficult. There is pain and suffering and at times there is a deep misery or depression beyond our control. Sometimes we fail and sometimes the world just kicks our ass. It's ok to fail, forget, blow it, lose it and fall. To move forward we must allow ourselves to look the fool, to trip up and make mistakes. The saying goes, fall six times and get up seven but no one tells you how long you can stay down. I say, stay down as long as you need to and you'll know when to get back...


Everythings gonna be ok

Reminders on the path Don't worry so much. Just relax. You're only doing the best you can. Fully embrace every aspect of who you are right now. Rest in being here right now. Decided to feel good. Don't try so hard. Just stop Just sit Just be yourself Be the ONE When sitting in meditation be comfortable, don't try to meditate. Watch your breath go in and out. If you have thoughts, no problem just keep sitting. If your butt hurts that's fine just keep sitting. If you can't...


So you want a quiet mind eh?

Once upon a time there was a thought, and the thought was, "a quiet mind is all you need." A quiet mind is all anyone needs to feel happy, peaceful, whole and complete. If your mind just stops and becomes still, what remains? It’s simple really and anyone can see this. What remains is quiet and quiet by its very nature is peaceful and peace is nice. Peace feels good, it feels serene, and who doesn't like serene? Boy oh boy, what a crazy thought (to quiet the mind) because now there was...

The Highway 101 Blues

It's Monday morning and your late again. Your stuck in bumper to bumper traffic and losing it. That jerk in the convertible just cut you off and that crazy person behind you is ridding your ass. Your trapped behind a Wal-Mart truck that is spewing diesel fumes into your passenger side widow making you choke and tear up. The widows rolled down because the air conditioner is on the fritz again and your spritzing like an animal. You can feel the rage beginning to build up inside you. It's...


Heart Mind

When the attachment to thoughts subsides our mind naturally gets quiet and we begin to experience gaps between thoughts. In these gaps we can hear the soft -spoken voice of the heart. This soft-spoken voice is a compass, that can point us to the direction we need to travel - inward. In life sometimes we need guidance and advice so we may look outward to our friends and family for counsel and wisdom. My advice to you is this, seek the inward path to your own inner teacher, it’s there for...


Happiness Now

In every moment there is the opportunity to see that your true nature is happiness. There is no need to seek for what is already yours. The treasure is within you.


How to Wake Up

Everyone wants a clear and concise "how to wake up" method, this is impossible without the willingness of the participant to jump in and take the necessary risks to give up their old ways of thinking and seeing. The Podcast is at the bottom of the article If you want to know the truth about who you really are and what this is really all about you have to be willing to give up the old methods, to reach beyond thought and thinking mind and to take the dive into the unknown. You must...


Returning to Intimacy

Return to the one that is not touched by the circumstances of the world. The one that lives in this world but not of this world. Drop the meditator, drop the form and just sit without any rigid model. There is no reconnection or creation of an experience or paradigm, it's ordinary and easy to do. A stillness practice does not need to be another task or your list, just sit and be there with what is and don't resist whatever comes up. Just embrace all arrising phenomenon as it is and...

Ego schmego!

The invitation to arrive in this moment is constantly being offered to you. It's up to you to take it. The mind wants to believe that we can't live without it and when we begin to see that we can, it's soft underbelly is exposed and vulnerable. In this state it's first reaction is to strike back against it's attacker and use all of it's defense mechanisms. These defense mechanisms come in varied form but in most cases it uses fear as it's primary weapon. It may also use numbing tactics...


Learning to breathe.

*At the bottom of this post is a link to hear the podcast. If you think about it we were never taught to breath, isn’t that strange? We have been living out our whole lives without the basic instructions on how to breathe properly. Isn’t that shocking? Most of us breathe like little chipmunks that are being chased by Mr. Twinkles the neighborhood cat. That type of breathing is fight or flight, or panic breathing. We are all running from Mr. Twinkles in our own way throughout the...
