VISION

In  2012, I took some time away from work. I’d worked continuously in engineering and business roles since 2001 and had never taken a break to consider what I really wanted to be doing. I considered my next steps based on the trajectory of my previous steps. But I felt myself being pulled into a - Read More -

JOY

In the midst of transition, my engineering side comes out. I tend to focus on process and practicality…and I sometimes unknowningly limit my own perception about what’s possible. (Love and abundance is everywhere, except where it is being suppressed by limited perception.) When I attended Agape Spiritual Center last weekend here in LA, I was reminded - Read More -

ANXIETY

As I started writing this post, I had the feeling of what anxiety means, but the words were alluding me. It is 5am in California, afterall ;) So I decided to do a quick search. I like Wikipedia’s version so much, I’m going to include an extended definition. It is long but worth the read: Anxiety is - Read More -

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

As we wake up to the reality that Donald Trump is the next President of the United States, many of us are in shock. This reality seemed an outside possibility, at best. We hoped that moral decency would win out to racism, sexism, and xenophobia. We hoped that love would win over fear. But the - Read More -

It was September 30, 2016…two days ago…it was the day that the Atlantic ocean swallowed my iPhone6. The featured photo for this post was to be the last selfie sent from my phone. And the bit of ocean that claimed by phone can been seen in the photo…the white wave cresting down below was to - Read More -

ABOUT SAYING EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON

They say, “Everything happens for a reason,” and I’m sure I’ve used this saying before too. But mostly I’m not a fan of it because it seems to justify every perceived bad thing. I don’t think the saying is necessarily wrong, but it just comes off as callous. It doesn’t express the full story. Things - Read More -

UPS AND DOWNS

While out mountain biking today in Cabo Verde, it’s impossible not to think of ups and downs while powering up some incredibly steep inclines and coasting down some equally steep hills (the fun part!!). Is it more fun to coast down the hill because of the work put in to climb up? I don’t know - Read More -

NEW LIFE

Before leaving for my month long trip to Thailand for Muay Thai training, I was inspired to do so by one picture (below). For you see, I was having a really bad day…followed by a sleepless night…and I knew I had to do some things differently. The discomfort was because I needed to let go, - Read More -

WATER FLOWS

Despite obstacles, water continues to flow. Rain increases its power. Because of its constant movement, water can make even the sharpest rock smooth.  When we face challenges in life, often our first reaction is to stop everything and withdraw from everyone. We may want to stay in bed and resist facing the world. But in - Read More -

SUFFERING

Suffering is not wanting to get up to go to work. Suffering is being a relationship that doesn’t make you shine. Suffering is battling illness. Suffering not having enough money to live the life you want. Suffering is dealing with toxic people. SUFFERING IS A STATE OF MIND. It is easy to feel trapped in - Read More -
