Until now, I had no idea that my shadow was such a great dancer....or teacher.

I am free. I did what I thought I was not capable of in previous chapters of my life. I have forgiven. I sit here in my newest chapter in gratitude. I do this every morning and throughout the day. Today, I have just realized, is the two-year anniversary of surviving a near-death accident. But that is... read more

Solo in India

Rajasthani boy

Last year I took a two-month solo trip to India. There were many reasons for taking this journey, but the most important one of all was the one dictated by my higher self. I heard a very loud whisper in my heart that told me it was time for me to go…

Hippies in India

It is a rare person who can review their life without resorting to spin; after all, who among us truly wants to portray ourselves publicly, warts and all?

Flame Nebula

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe” (Lao Tzu). Trust in the universe. This is the best pasta in the universe! People mean different things when they say “universe.” What does “universe” really mean?

Longing and Desire: Meditation and the Truth of the Heart


But how do we know? How can we tell whether that still, small voice is coming from the mind or the heart? If our search is for a life like this, filled with love and bliss and freedom, we must learn to judge our own desires and determine their origin—the heart or the mind—and our own motivation. When we want something, is it because it will satisfy our ego, or because it will satisfy our soul?
