If your life is even remotely like mine then you are an extremely busy person. I am in the extraordinarily rare position of having three ‘other-focused’ jobs that allow me to spend my days indulging my passion for working with troubled teens, my evenings are spent in my private practice working with clients to help [...]

Welcome back friends, Today I would like to share an incident that occurred this past weekend which shows that when you actually try living by some of the precepts I have been advocating, you begin to find reinforcement and support in some of the most unlikely places.

Reality Check

Today I want to talk about how truly embracing the reality of your circumstance can have a profound effect on your life. First, I want to clarify that I am not advocating for you to simply roll over and let the Universe treat you as its doormat; remember, we always have a choice. Rather, when [...]

Better to Reign in Hell….

Practical Demonstrations of the Awakened Consciousness

Good Monday morning to everyone. I hope you had an intentionally great and mindful weekend. Time to get back to the business of life and becoming decent, compassionate human beings, (although I hope you didn’t abandon your practice over the past two days). First, the fact that we’re able to post at all this morning [...]

The Person Behind the Camera

Today I’d like to speak to the importance of being mindful of our actions and always acting with the intention of sharing kindness and compassion. The accompanying photograph is a prime example of this in action. The picture is (literally) of my bride and myself arriving in Rome, Italy, for our honeymoon. We had just [...]
