We were driving way too slow

I wrote and published two books this year. I did. I had set the goal of doing three at the beginning of the year. Everyone I've mentioned that to has looked at me like I was crazy. I was. Having put two full books out I've decided to have a one project a year goal now so that I can give that project my heart and soul without feeling like I'm in a self created pressure cooker.

Why am I using my iPad to write this? Cray cray...

Anyway...so that's my vision now. To focus on one book and bring that to life. Heavens know I'm never going to run out of words...and it seems I'll never run out of people who want to dance with my words.

All and all 2013 has been incredible. It's for sure been my most productive year. From working two jobs, coaching clients, and writing two books, I upgraded to a kick ass full time job because I got promoted, grew my coaching practice, collaborated on a kickass article on energy medicine, and even won an award for being a team player at work. What's amazing in all this is seeing I have room for more, energy for more, and the drive for it. I feel it down in my bones.

I feel like I'm just getting started. Every year I seem to achieve more than the last that when I look back I have tangible evidence of how much I've grown. This is kick ass and makes me look ahead at 2014 with wide eyes and pure excitement. 

Life is full of little and big accomplishments. And the best way to immerse yourself deeper into your capacity for greatness, to connect to the master within yourself, is to stop and acknowledge yourself, stretch it out and ready yourself to go even deeper and farther.

I'm driving my self much faster than I was before.
Zoom zoom zoom.
Watch out 2014.

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 …
