Part Biography / Part Philosophy
Inspiring others by being me (and living free):
Light one up, sip some wine, you may as well join in.
This is me, authentic, no BS, now let us begin.
And if you want to work together, better to know who I am, no surprises.
Because I always am who I am, never any disguises.
I help coach people towards freedom, and that includes mindfulness tasks.
But just as importantly...I teach the art of not wearing any masks.
There's joy in discovering who you are, because then to yourself, you can be true...
Otherwise, aren't you letting others determine happiness for you?
The path I am on is the right one, but it's new...
Just a few years ago, I was lost and I didn't know what to do...
So here are some of my philosophies...just mine...no need for debate.
All I ask is that as you read...ask yourself if you can relate:
Life is all about relationships and love...deep down everyone knows.
So I've decided to love unconditionally, all in...and not just dipping my toes.
My wife of over a decade and I are in an open relationship...specifically, we're polyamorous.
This means we can also love others, which you may think horrific or glamorous.
It's the belief there's no finite "bubble" of love…the same as how we love our parents, our kids, and our pets.
It's a choice and you may say it's a gamble...but, it's love, and in love...everyone bets.
What's most important, is to first know who you are, and then you can start attracting.
Because then it's simply a matter of being yourself…naturally happy and confident…no acting.
And just a quick note about my other loves, who mean so much to me.
Weighing in at a combined 15 pounds, my Yorkies Rocky and Lela, aka "Sweet Lee"!
As for religion, you'll only see me in a temple or church on a very special occasion.
And since I consider nature my temple...that's where I'll be daily for contemplation.
I'll also be there for celebration...that God is everywhere, and all around.
God is you and God is me, the universe, the sky, the ground.
Once I realized this, I began to feel more connected than ever before.
Connected to everything, to people, to nature, connected to so much more.
So if you're religious, no need to worry that we won't get along.
Just know that I respect guys like Buddha and Jesus. They had it right all along...
Here's another big one, that brings up so many questions.
For starters, why is it we are sent to school...without ever asking for OUR suggestions?
What I mean by that is that wouldn't the fire truly be burning?
If we asked every student out there...what is it that YOU would like to be learning?
If education focused on the differences that make us each unique...
Competition would dissolve, as EVERY child would focus on climbing their own peak.
Instead, we put our attention on grades over the joys of learning something new.
So let's flip this...then everyone, for their entire life, would naturally love learning too.
As someone who studied business, I believe this is another tall tale...
When we're taught to build a plan, a business, a team...raise a bunch of money before ever making a sale.
And if we're lucky, we can try to create something based on an interest we enjoy.
But you have to ask, is simply an interest in something enough to warrant employ?
Starting a business or creative endeavor,
is not at all about being the most clever.
It's about finding your passion and genius, the thing you truly love and where you excel,
So when you're doing it, you're flowing, it's creative, it's fun...and that's when you really sell!
The "business" comes after, building structure as you need,
Because a business in bloom won't be fun, if it's not fun while you're planting the seed.
Food, Drinks, and Vices
As I've mentioned before, I do drink and smoke pot,
I won't make a lame joke and pretend I forgot :)
I don't see any problems with enjoying life's vices.
You're the chef of your life, and the world is full of different spices.
That said, the key is to truly know who you are, why you do what you do, and to not live in fear...
To make decisions from presence and consciousness...not from your ego, society, or a peer.
As for my diet, I'm more conscious now than ever,
When I think back to when I did eat meat...the justifications were clever.
And again, I'm not here to preach, just encourage you always ask why and not just take instruction...
We love our pets so much, but turn a blind to other animals and so much destruction.
So that's it! I truly hope you can relate to some of the things I have said...
And if you can, perhaps it's time to wake up from "our Matrix"...and remove those wires from your head :)
