Fear And Ancient Teachings

Why would I wage bloody war…death would be better- Arjuna

Listen on Podcast

There is no better place for a man to be when it is he, who realizes that life is, and will always be a constant battle within. No matter where you at right now, the perpetual struggles you face are driven by an inner warrior who only sees the world in colors of fear, anger, suffering, and attachment.

That is why life is hard. You are in a constant pull with enemies that you’ve never taken the time to face.

You may think…

Who am I? A conversation with my body.

So here I am, at this moment watching the world flow through the words before me. I am leaning into this idea that the more I surrender to life, the more my dreams and desires manifest. What they turn into is not up to me, because that would mean I was attached to a certain outcome and way of life.

We are never entitled to the fruits of our actions

flowing with words

You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to inaction.-Bhagavad Gita

I am finishing up my edits for my book, and this morning I could not help think about everything in my life up until this point. It’s hard not to reflect on who I am today, and who I was. …

On Trusting Yourself To Walk Into The Storm

Morning Reflection

“We don’t see things as they are — we see them as we are.” Anaïs Nin

Words I wrote in my journal this morning as I work through some resistance I am facing in reference to becoming a first-time author. I am on the last big edits of my book, and it is reminding me to lean into everything I am feeling, including the noise and clutter surrounding my life. …

This is How I Do The Work

Morning Thoughts

I woke up at 3:30 am to write. I haven’t been able to do this in over six weeks since having the COVID. It’s as if there has been something missing from me, and I can feel it slowly coming back. The morning silence. The first cup of my fancy coffee from a machine that looks like it’s from back to the future. A dimly lit candle and the blank pages in front of me. It’s all part of who I am these days.

Something comes forward from within me when I am…

Yup, I said it. Your boundaries suck. Here’s why.

There’s a collective belief that we aren’t enough in life. It’s as if someone fed us plates of bullshit when we were younger to make us feel full, yet we were never satisfied and learned about self-worth and expression from meals we never liked.

I’ve written about self-worth in my new book Nowhere To Go(coming out later this year), my poems, and the Friday Flow series.

Join me in my freebie boundaries course

These battles with self-worth are often disguised in the form of extreme confidence, perfectionism, and over-generous behaviors that…

Skiing, acceptance, and embracing change

March 4, 2021, first time skiing

Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.- Rumi

Pizza, pizza, pizza the instructor said to me while I skied down the hill frantically unable to stop while I tumbled to the ground. As I lay there on the ground facedown in the snow laughing, I could not help but think about the lessons I struggled with while embracing previous transitions in life. …

What I learned from a five-year-old in 21 days while having COVID

Day 11, 2021. COVID and Fatherhood

Today’s flow is a little different. I dropped off my daughter last night at her grandmother's after being with her for three full weeks. To say it was challenging would be an understatement. I often speak with my clients about the twists and turns that come from raising a little girl in today’s world, and how it is one of the toughest transitons in my life to date. They understand because all have kids who are grown, and many of my clients have been with me through my…

Thoughts On Loneliness

Loneliness climbed upon my back, pulling at those tender spots in my body that make me feel as if I am empty inside. I have come to know this part of me and understand that I cannot escape this voice that whispers words of despair from time to time. I do not try to block out this voice because I know there is something beyond the harshness of what is spoken to me.

With my breath as my guide, as I do most mornings, I confront whatever it is I am feeling with an open heart. I…

What it feels like to have the Corona Virus

6 Days Into The Corona Virus

I thought life couldn’t hit me with any more craziness. After two tough years, what more could life throw at me? It wasn’t a question of if, with a split household, but when the Corona Virus would find me. And it has. So here I am on a two-week quarantine with my five-year-old daughter. Today is the first morning I had a good night of full sleep without waking up, but this virus hit me hard in the early days.

As someone who takes care of his body, the onset of…
