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 TRUTH

As I hike through the Valley of Paul today, I keep thinking of truth. Of how some people go through extraordinary measures to avoid telling the truth and end up causing far more damage than if they would have told the truth in the first place. Of how we lie to ourselves. How we avoid - Read More -

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

While reflecting on a couple of lovely days spent traveling around my beautiful island of Santo Antao, I’m inspired to think about the journey of life. The featured photo was taken from the crater of a volcano here. How does someone come to live in the crater of a volcano? How do all of the decisions - 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 -

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 -

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 -

IT’S NOT WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE

It’s not what it sounds like…it’s what it is. When I think back to life in Corporate America, I remember all of the times people discuss long hours spent working and early morning calls. Another person would chime in about even longer hours. Though the spirit was often one of complaint, it became a bit - Read More -

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Almost one year ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing high school students interested in attending my alma mater, Northwestern University. It is an incredible privilege to speak with these students, as I know that my assessment may influence their future collegiate decisions. I tag teamed many of the interviews with my now friend and - Read More -

ME IN 2013

There is a sentence in the Tao Te Ching: the path forward seems to go back.  I recently found these pages (below) that I wrote in 23  January 2013 in Los Angeles. As I looked to find pictures of myself during that time, I ran across this picture that I took during a visit to Chicago - Read More -
