A Message to the People of Planet Earth

A Message to the People of Planet Earth I have spent the last 7 years of my life on a quest. A quest to ask some really big questions about myself, life, this world, the universe, and existence. A quest for truth. I came to the realization that if one abandons all identification with their beliefs and viewpoints (which are all simply stories – perceptual spectacles – with which we […]

An Avenue of Gratitude

An Avenue of Gratitude Over the past few months I have been studying, experimenting, and storytelling about the best ways in which to align oneself with the spirit of the gift. A foundational element of gifting is the notion of “valuing the flow” – making sure that anything in excess abundance within your life is being passed on to another community member who needs to use it. In essence it […]

My Quest For Fulfillment

My Quest for Fulfillment This will be my final online posting for two weeks as I will be leaving tomorrow for Merritt, British Columbia for a 10 day silent meditation retreat, called a Vipassana Meditation.

What Happened to my Education?

What Happened to My Education? A Graduating Student’s Final Request My inspiration for this entry arose out of some personal disappointment and frustration during my Strategic Management class at the University this afternoon. The disappointment I am feeling is due to succumbing to fear and my resulting inability to speak what I was really thinking about in my class. Instead of going deeper with what I was really asking I […]

Are Your Dreams Real?

Are Your Dreams Real? If you experience something in a dream, have you experienced it the same as in this reality? One of my favourite movie quotes was from Morpheus in The Matrix: “What is real? How do you define real? If real is what you can feel, smell, taste, and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” While your dreams can be considered ‘not real’ […]

Why don’t we Ask?

Why Don’t We Ask? “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” — Mahatma Gandhi  Once it became self-evident to me that the best way in which to affect positive change in the world was to change yourself, I began an investigation into the most effective ways to do so. I want to emphasize that from my own personal, direct experience, this idea is so obvious to […]

My 100 Days of Personal Transformation Experiment

My 100 Day Personal Transformation Experiment One of my long standing core beliefs that I have done my best to embody throughout my life is the understanding that a fundamental reason we are here on this planet is to grow, learn, create, make mistakes, explore, and evolve ourselves, our relationships, our consciousness, our understanding of the world, our understanding of our Selves, and ultimately, where we fit in all of […]
