When your body becomes run down you are more likely to get sick. That simple truth is clearly apparent when you are fatigued and stressed because often those are the times when you become sick.

This past Friday I turned 20 years old and now I am officially no longer a teenager. As such, I have been thinking deeply about the paths that we take in our lives.

The relationship between order and chaos has always fascinated me. That dynamic was recently exemplified to me on a train ride from San Luis Obispo to Los Angeles. Outside of the train car a storm raged in full force, with sheets of rain beating the windows, but inside the car the passengers and I were peaceful, warm, and relaxed. We watched mo ...…

I deeply believe that a key aspect of education is repetition. As such, your spiritual education must include that aspect.

That act of meeting yourself is o ...…

An aspect of the health and wellness world that is too often not discussed or explored is honesty, honesty with ourselves and with the world around us.

There are often times in our lives, I definitely know there have been in mine, where we let the stressors and responsibilities that surround us control us. Often that situation stems from losing balance, from putting too much focus on one thing and then, when something unexpected emerges, we become overwhelmed. This simple equation has played a ...…

Thank you everyone for sending the gifts and card ...…
 
Life rarely, if ever, turns out exactly the way one expects it to. Often the case is that it turns out completely opposite to your expectations. 2018 was a year that, for me, turned out completely opposite to my expectations.

“Things aren’t as easy as just snapping your fingers, you have to work at it.” -Jadd Martinez Often the simplicity of putting one foot in front of the other can seem to magically solve almost all of our problems.

The stressors of life are like a wave: you can easily be pummeled and pulled under. However, you have it within your power to break free of the imprisonment that is caused by allowing yourself to be chained to your stressors and distractions. One of the tools you can employ to break free is preparation. I always say ‘prepare for the future, lea ...…

Sometimes when life does not go in the planned direction that change of course can become a gift, instead of a curse.

This year’s busyness and additional responsibilities helped me to realize that not only is racing not always ...…

By building, and committing to, a routine we teach ourselves how to endure challenging times and be present amongst positive times.

Due to all of my talk of paradigm breaking one may think that voting would be an aspect of society that I would also have issues with. However, I have found that voting, in and of itself, is a powerful form of paradigm breaking. To me the act of voting is the opportunity to shape the world around you for the better and what, if not that, is par ...…

I have always had a deep fascination with the perimeter of conventional society, the domain of weirdos, rebels, and paradigm breakers. It is not only a fascination, but a lifestyle, because I am very much on the outskirts of “normal” society. The common thread between the various subcultures that I have interacted with on the outskirts, from Co ...…

Over the past few weeks, and for a few more weeks to come, I have spent each weekend in places other than San Luis Obispo, where I’m living right now.
