Your Perception is A Reflection

Your Perception is A Reflection

Your perception of me is a reflection of you.   It takes 13 milliseconds for your brain to process the input it receives. That means everything you see, hear, taste, touch, smell has a brief pause from the time your eyes, ears, nose, mouth and fingers sense it to the time it becomes recognized for what it is.

Being The One

Being The One

Being The One   Stop trying to be the One. Just sit. Just be. The moment you recognize your meditation as something more than it is, you lose the reason for meditating in the first place.

Rest, Renew, Meditate on 2016

Rest, Renew, Meditate on 2016

If you are like me, you have a natural need for activity. The moment I feel as if nothing is getting accomplished, I begin to look for things to do. It is shy I could never take on the corporate life, where downtime was celebrated and people looked forward to vacation days more than anything. Me? I dreaded them.  It is why I got out of the corporate world as quickly as I could and drove myself through producing documentaries and building...
