How to Activate Happiness as a Living Reality

“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castaneda There was a moment, where I was unhappy with the way my life was unfolding. I felt that there was a part of me that had not come to surface and I was not in touch with my true nature. I found that I was not true to myself. This led me on a journey of how to discover and activate happiness as a living reality. Where was I to begin? The only place that made sense to me was to look at my life...

Healing Your Presence

When we deal with our issues, we have been been put on the wrong foot, like most of us, by a culture of explaining, looking for a reason, and dwelling in the past. Psychology and other disciplines took Freud’s insight and turned it into a mode of thinking, as a way of getting rid of the things that bother us. The model of cause and effect does not work very well in the domain of awareness. We easily get entangled in a string of thoughts and habits that grow in our awareness by the attention we grant them. This approach to dealing with...

Shift Your Language, Move Your World

We all wake up in the morning with stuff that does not leave our mind, no matter what we tell ourselves, or how we look at it. This morning was one of these mornings for me. I could ask myself the question, “Is what is occupying my mind true?” If the answer were  “No,” and it keeps on persisting in my awareness, then where do I go with this? How can I stop being consumed by what is catching my attention? How can I find peace? Firstly, by letting it be. When I stop resisting what occurs in my awareness, I am no longer the...

How Do We Regain Control when Catastrophic Events Strike Our Life?

The fundamental question is, “how do we maintain our sense of centeredness, our sense of connectedness to life, our sense of presence, and do not allow ourselves to be immobilized by our circumstances when catastrophe strikes our life?” Is this possible? The temptation is to invalidate ourselves, condemn our circumstances, and assume a future of no possibility and doom.  How is it possible to stay free from these patterns of thought, and not let our circumstances define us? Do we have the courage, and the ultimate integrity to remain trusting...

Out of Alignment? Where to Start…

Have you ever used a pair of binoculars at a sporting event or bird watching? Did you have difficulties, such as seeing double images or fuzziness – or was your view clear? A binocular is made from two perfectly aligned telescopes, each bringing a separate image into one of your eyes. Because each eye is in a different position, the image each gets is slightly different. The images come together in your brain to create a 3-D image. If you ever played with a View Master as a child, you recall the amazement of seeing images jump into life...

Life Lessons of Brene Brown

How many people do you know who are striving to be happy – to realize a dream, lose weight, find the perfect partner, job, or life? The how-to bookshelves are crammed, there is a 12-step program for everything, and the web is awash in promises to make us into something we think we are not. Why such a disconnect? Questions like this are the focus of Brene Brown, Ph.D. researcher, LCSW, and author of The Gifts of Imperfection. She believes that many people embrace assumptions that are – simply put – wrong.   This article explores...

Do You Struggle with Change?

A A Do you know the Ginkgo tree? You may be familiar with Ginkgo leaves in traditional medicine and for their graphic beauty. Called “the living fossil,” the Ginkgo dates back hundreds of millions of years, and is a missing link between ancient and modern plants. Before my lapse into description biases you further, I invite you to experience this video of this tree in Utrecht.     Should you choose do so, no need to work, no need to observe and make notes – there will be no quiz! Place your attention with the experience or...

4 Reasons to Know the Butterfly Effect

Have you heard of the butterfly effect? It’s a theory of mathematician and meteorologist Edward Lorenz that proposes a hurricane can develop from the slightest motion of the air, even caused by a butterfly flapping its wings a continent away. In his studies, Lorenz predicted that tiny variations in conditions can cause wildly divergent impacts down the road. What an elegant expression of the oneness of the Universe… that a tiny insect might change a vast system of energy by its normal actions as it goes about its day… Author Andy Andrews...

Do You Struggle to be Happy?

We have all seen the struggles of an insect caught in a spider web. A mere touch of a leg or wing leads to a flurry of activity that serves only to entrap the creature more deeply. We see a similar dynamic at play whenever we resist a situation or put pressure on something to change. Like a child’s game of tug-of-war, the harder we pull, the more powerful the resistance, and the more exhausted our resources. Our struggle steadily increases, and so, we become effectively stuck in place, despite massive outlays of trying and striving – despite...

Unwind Your Self-Packaging with Gratitude

What defines you? If you hear this question, what comes to mind? Do you think of a laundry list of identifiers – like father, engineer, or student? Or do you first sense a pre-verbal inner “real” you…
