“Don’t waste a single grain of rice, treat food as if it were your eyesight.” -Cook Your Life When you go out to eat and do not finish your meal, consider wrapping and sharing with the homeless. Do not waste food that you buy from the grocery store. Worst case scenario, contribute to your compost pile and heal the soil. Food has become a commodity and is no longer precious. Try growing your food sometime. Learn about the influence of weather, insects, time, and water. Who grows your food? Who transports it? Who sells it? What’s in it? Food is… [read more]
“They gave the fourth album a one paragraph review. Now there’s a lot of material on that. ‘Black Dog’. There’s ‘When The Levy’s Break’. And ‘Stairway To Heaven’. One paragraph.” Jimmy Paige, “It Might Get Loud” “Clarity. Clarity of vision. What you’ve been looking at from the wrong angle and not seeing at all. You labor. You sweat to see what you couldn’t have seen from that other perspective..” The Edge, “It Might Get Loud” As an entrepreneur, I have had to learn that sometimes you are so far ahead of the game, it takes a bit for others to… [read more]
There is a monthly event here in Phoenix called Spaces, Places and Faces. It is a brilliant concept. We all drive past buildings and think, “wow, wonder what that is?” or “that’s a cool building, wonder what the inside looks like?” Now we get to find out. This month was held at the After Hours Gallery, 116 W. McDowell Road. I have driven past this place so many times and admired the architecture. Last night, the architect toured us through the multi-story live/work space. It is very modern, very sustainable, and well, very cool. I think everyone’s favorite was the… [read more]
Powerlessness and unworthiness completely contradict joy, productiveness, vision, and purpose. They are also two of the biggest lies. Unless you are living in an oppressive environment, enslaved, or being otherwise abused, you have power to make change. As far as being worthy, well, you have never, ever been unworthy! You, as much as anyone else, are an extension of the Divine, and even when you may make poor choices, you are no less worthy of love and abundance. That’s just the way it is. The question is, when will you finally remember that?
The following is from the blog, “The Art of Nonconformity”. How To be Yourself It’s a good idea to be yourself, not only because everybody else is taken, but because trying to be anything else doesn’t usually get you very far. But how do you do it? First, you have to understand what you have unlearned about yourself. This process can be disheartening, as you remember past decisions where you had the chance to be yourself but instead chose to be something different. Since trying to be someone else is usually ineffective, why not begin by deciding to do only… [read more]

Living in fear of scarcity keeps you trapped in a cycle of scarcity. Now is the time to embrace enoughness and build on your successes (and yes, you have successes).

A woman has a spot on her body, tiny little thing, that contains 8,000 nerve endings. (men have 4,000 in their spot). If we are not having 8,000 thoughts, decisions, dreams, actions that cater to those pleasure points, then we just are not living fully enough. Today, share a sensual desire- with anyone you want. It is inspiring and creates sparks to engage more pleasure in our life. This is magic. This is power. Sensuality is not only about sex. It’s about what feels really good to you! For some it could be a good, long, hard run. Perhaps a… [read more]
