Price of Perfection

Price of Perfection

I have often said that all the answers are out there in nature. You simply have to look deep enough. I hold to this way of thinking on every level. It was just announced that it is impossible to reach a temperature of absolute zero.  It is the same for the speed of light. The closer you get to each, the costlier it becomes to attain that perfect state, eventually becoming physically impossible to do so. What does this have to do with your life?...

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love, as versus conditional love, is so rare. Conditional Love is easy. I give you Love when you do something for me that I want you to do. You do the dishes, I kiss your cheek. I hold the door for you and you smile at me. You do something in the bedroom I enjoy. I return the favor. It is a give and take. At times I give more than I take. At others I receive more than I give. But it is not give freely. There is a cost, a...

Be Your Meditation Master

Be Your Meditation Master

Meditation is not something one can teach. One can only share their practice with your. It is for you to take what resonates with your life, to layer it with the teachings of others, to question what you do not understand, and to develop a practice that works for you, in your world.

The Network of You

The Network of You

The Network of You. You are not an individual. You are a collective, and the collective that is you extends in every direction – inward and out. It can be found in the mitochondria that power every cell of your body. It can be found in the bacteria of your gut; which doctors are just now discovering how important they are for your health, and without which you would not be alive today. As much as you all like to think of ourselves as an...
