The Beauty of Imperfection

The Beauty of Imperfection

Write By:

All my life I’ve been a perfectionist. Things had to be just so. Folds with razor-sharp creases. Stacks of paper in perfect alignment. Food arranged with symmetry and precision. This affliction worsened as I aged. The more settled I was in my behaviors and attitudes and general life patterns, the more controlling I became. In writing I had to use the correct words and the correct grammar and the correct style. Heaven forbid I had a typo in my manuscript. If I didn’t, then the writing wasn’t good enough. I wasn’t good......

Taming Your Inner Critic

Taming Your Inner Critic

Write By:

Imagine the scene… You are out with your friends, and across the room you see the most gorgeous person ever. They look up, and your eyes meet for the most fleeting of moments, before you look away. Immediately your heart starts to pound, your belly is doing summersaults, and you can hardly breathe. And then… …that voice in your head gets started, without your permission, “oh really, you think they would be interested in someone like you? Look at you, your so skinny, you have no social skills, and omg just look......

Not Knowing How

Not Knowing How

Write By:

Do you like to know how things are going to work or how they’re going to happen? The practical side of me wants to know the exact steps from A to Z and everything in between. I get this from my father who was in charge of logistics in the Army. Forget spontaneity. You can’t go anywhere or do anything without a good plan. Often this need to know stands me in good stead. Marketing, writing, and business development all require structure and know-how. Without them you’re apt to flounder and spend......

Is it Metaphysics or Quantum Physics

Is it Metaphysics or Quantum Physics

Write By:

Within the last decade I have lost count of all the times I’ve been asked if I joined a cult. Why? Because I am happier than ever, and because I share my understanding of spiritual principles with anyone who will listen. In short I have become a metaphysical evangelist. As my journey and my studies have continued to evolve I have become more and more curious about the quantum world, neuroscience, and the realm of cell biology. This has been a game of catch-up, as many of the discoveries are now decades......

In "Selfie" Defense

In “Selfie” Defense

Write By:

Selfies: selfish or self-love? If you are remotely in touch with pop culture, you have heard of, seen and maybe even snapped a few “selfies.”  With the advent of smart phones with front cameras, selfie sticks, etc., selfies are very much a part of our daily lives. I recently read an article which was very harsh of people who indulge in taking “selfies”. The writer was labeling them as being narcissistic, egotistical and possibly even having mental disorders. This, of course, was extremely interesting to me. I admittedly take my fair share......

Is Your Fear Stopping You?

Is Your Fear Stopping You?

Write By:

Being creative is a wonderful gift. Through your eyes your dreams come to life. You blend the colors. You choose the lighting. You mold and shape and breathe into your art until it has form and movement and is ready for the world. Being creative can also really suck the big one. You have to perform. People are counting on you. Your work can’t be just okay, it has to be amazing. Breathtaking. You compare yourself to others who have gone before you, to others who are out there now. And you......

Carpe Articulum -- Seize the Moment

Carpe Articulum — Seize the Moment

Write By:

The Latin phrase Carpe Diem (seize the day) was first attributed to a poem written by the famed Roman poet Horace during the reign of Augustus.  It gained fresh awareness for many of us by the actor Robin Williams in the 1989 movie Dead Poets Society. Williams, an English professor, challenges his class of boys to be cognizant of the opportunities that are contained within every moment, “to gather ye rosebuds while you may.”  Herding the boys  around a trophy case filled with pictures of  young athletes of yesteryear, he quips, “These......

The Three Most Important Words for Success

Write By:

Do you feel stuck, or like the “pause” button of your life is pushed, and you don’t know how to get moving again?  There are three words that can help to not only get you moving again, but get you on the road to your greatest success. I recently participated in a radio interview publicity tour for my latest book, My Life Contract.  The book is about creating goals, staying on track, keeping focused, and seeing results through a simple program that I had developed over years in my life.  To prepare......

A Spiritual Stretch – Beyond the Backyard

A Spiritual Stretch – Beyond the Backyard

Write By:

When I was a young child growing up with my two brothers in Colorado, my parents set many boundaries to keep us safe.  One such boundary was that when we were little, we were to play in our own backyard.  I am sure they had removed everything obviously dangerous from the yard and they had it fenced to keep us from wandering beyond this haven of safety.  I can remember being very content playing on the 1960’s metal swing set, digging in the sandbox and jumping on an old tractor inner tube......

Universal Tough Love

Universal Tough Love

Write By:

The influential mythologist Joseph Campbell once offered this, “The Universe always strikes you at your weakest point because that’s what most needs strengthening.” Although the word ‘strike’ is an interesting choice, Campbell is relaying that the Universe perpetually offers us the chance to evolve. One might even say, It insists on it. Generally our fears are exaggerations of limitation in a landscape of infinite potentiality. Through fear we see the world as an unfair punch to the gut, a strike, yet the Universe will not stop showcasing one wondrous manifestation after another through......
