The Formula for Freedom
What does it mean to live free?
Is there a formula for inner freedom?
A way of Being in the world.
A way to be true to my soul.
A simple formula to live my best, most fulfilling life.
Truth + Authenticity = Freedom
Seek my truth.
Seek my own wisdom.
Trust my own intuition.
Listen to that still small voice.
I am the master of my own life.
Yes, there can be guides along the way.
But, ultimately it’s up to me to find my own truth.
It’s up to me to live my truth.
On the pat…
What does it mean to live life uninhibited?
That is the question I have been asking myself.
Something I haven’t done very well in my life.
I have lived controlled.
I have lived self-consciously.
I have lived worrying about what others think of me.
What is the root of this inhibited life I have been living?
What do I need to do to live uninhibited?
To live from a place where I express my thoughts and feelings unselfconsciously and without restraint?
That sounds very freeing.
Somehow it …
3 Reasons Why I Love to Practice Qi Gong
Qi Gong is the skill of working with energy. It’s the art of effortless power, mirroring the movement of nature. It originated 4,000 years ago in China.
It’s a powerful practice that helps us to increase our energy and reduce our stress.
We are energy, that is why I train my energy body through the Eastern bioenergetic practice of Qi Gong daily.
I Feel Empowered
I have learned the hard way that most of life is out of my control. At least the external circumstances are. Trying to control pe…
Trying Not To Try
I have always been a trier.
Make it happen.
Of course we all need a certain amount of effort to move forward.
But sometimes that over-trying gets in the way.
It creates tension.
It creates anxiety.
Being overly attached to outcomes takes all of the fun out of life.
This has been really hard for me to overcome.
The perfectionist in me wants to get it right.
It feels like smoke and mirrors.
I am “trying” to shift out of trying.
This one life.
This one precious life.
There have been many challenges.
Obstacles to overcome.
A disintegrated knee.
A metal hip.
Lessons of perseverance.
And then there is waking up to the truth.
Everything is for my higher good.
To realize the truth of my being.
I am the master of my life.
No matter what comes my way it is meant to reveal my higher Self.
It’s about overcoming.
What Would Love Do?
The struggle to keep my heart open.
It’s been conditioned to close.
To self-preserve to stay safe.
To protect my energy.
I have told myself so many stories.
It’s not who I want to be.
But it’s so damn hard to change.
The ego is fighting me tooth and nail.
It doesn’t want to let go.
I know the truth, but yet the hardwiring in my brain is holding on for dear life.
Yet, here I am.
Doing the work.
Asking myself the hard questions.
Looking in the mirror.
In the thick of transformatio…
Get knocked down.
Get back up again and again and again.
Rise up one more time.
Don’t stay down for the count.
Rise up into wholeness.
Rise up into oneness.
Perseverance is the name of the game.
With failing there is no shame.
Fail and fail some more.
Just fail forward.
What is failure anyways?
An opportunity to learn.
Or an opportunity to see ourselves as a failure.
What’s the difference?
Or I am a failure.
The only way to fail is to give up.
We are warriors.…
There isn’t anything I have to do.
Just be still.
Be aware of being aware.
Sit back and observe.
I am being breathed.
I feel a peace that passes all understanding.
A smile comes over me.
A tear runs down my face.
A tear of joy.
A deep sense of love.
A wholeness that I can’t describe.
The senses want to pull me in so many directions.
My mind can spin with relentless thoughts.
Most of those thoughts aren’t even true.
The truth is I am being breathed.
The best thing I can …
Sitting On A Stump In The Middle Of The Woods
As I was reflecting on my life and all that has happened over the past six months since leaving Boulder, Colorado, traveling and ending up in Jacksonville, Florida a question popped up in my mind.
What does it mean to be content?
What came up for me was an old mantra from a number of years ago.
“I can be content just sitting on a stump in the middle of the woods.”
Yes, travel is great and I plan on doing more in the future.
Yes, I love to ride my bike, play golf and workout and I plan on…
