Life is So Intensely Gorgeous

That I get to wake up to the most inspiring view everyday constantly brings me into a deep state of gratitude. I woke up to a fog-filled colorful morning today and just felt myself fall into an even more profound sense of love and gratitude for my world, for my life, and the way it all unfolds. I love the beauty of our world. I love the beauty we are capable of discovering in every second of this life.

We live in such an incredible world. There is so much beauty to explore, to discover, to come face to face with in every moment. We may sometimes fall under the illusion that we know this world, that we know what this view we come into day after day is all about, we may tell ourselves that when we look we are truly seeing this living paradise that surrounds us every which way, but I am under the clear impression that we don't. That there is so much more for us to discover here, there is so much more breath-taking beauty contained in everything is absolutely and loudly clear to my eyes.



Where can you open your eyes to the paradise all around you? Where are you not letting life take your breath away? Where can you give in more to the profound beauty of your world?


I Am so taken by this life, so deeply and gratefully taken by the sparkle inside everything in this world.

Life is so intensely gorgeous.

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else. 

To honor …
