As children, we loved to play games; sometimes we won, sometimes we lost, but the joy came from playing the game. As we grew, we started taking the losses personally, or we got hurt, so we stopped playing. Let's rekindle our enthusiasm for the game of life! Stay in the game!

Much of my life has been a progressive apocalypse. The word "apocalypse" actually means "to uncover or reveal." Life often teaches us to believe things that aren't true. When we discover this and learn what is true, what always was true, it can feel like the end of the world.

Not all who wander are lost. Most coaching around achieving goals is about having a laser focus so nothing distracts you from the goal. I don't teach this. Life isn't about laser focus, it's about enjoying as much as we possibly can, it's about wandering toward our goals.

We are all on a path of life, a labyrinth, not a maze. Mazes have hard blocks, wrong turns, and it's possible to get stuck and lost in a maze. A labyrinth is a continuously flowing path with no wrong turns. When we start to see life from this perspective, we can learn to trust the path and keep moving forward.

I've read a lot of books on marriage and relationships. I can honestly say The Go-Giver Marriage by John David Mann and Ana Gabriel Mann is, by far, the best. Written as a beautiful parable (with a refreshingly practical "how-to" section), the story captivated and brought me to tears of joy and inspiration. I had so much fun talking with the authors about the book and why they wrote it. Seriously, regardless of relation...

Do you have a "winning" mindset? Do you play to win? I'm not talking about a "competitive" mindset. Just the opposite. Competition is about beating an opponent or being better than someone. A winning mindset is about loving what you do and enjoying the process of playing the game of life.

Many of us teach that the only thing that is really real is this present moment, not the past, nor the future. While this is true, it's not completely true. Whatever you are actively thinking about, past or future, IS real in this moment right now. So think about an awesome future and feel awesome NOW!

Osho said, "The mind is always afraid, but it's only afraid of one thing: the Heart." The mind is always talking, always distracting you from listening to the quiet, calm, stillness of your heart. In the silence, you enter the presence of the Divine, indeed, you enter into your own Divinity, into an intimacy that connects you as One.

True communication rarely happens because we don't understand the true meaning/purpose of communication. Its true meaning is to create unity, and shares the same root as community, which is unity. Communication is not just telling people something; it's creating a deep connection, a unifying oneness!

Sadly, there is a common teaching that "grace" is something that is given to someone who is unworthy of it. It's not true! Grace is a gift given because you ARE worthy in the eyes of the giver. It just means you didn't DO anything to earn it. Grace is a non-transactional gift. We must drop the "I am unworthy" story!

Do you notice, over the course of a day, how many things happen that bring a smile to your face, joy into your life? Most of us don't notice, or soon forget. By keeping a list (a manifest) of all of the joyful events of the day, you open up pathways for more joy to come into your life.

While my dog, Lincoln, and I were on vacation in Florida, he was attacked by another dog on the beach. While his wounds were significant, he will make a full recovery. There are lessons here for all of us. We experience painful, traumatic events in our lives. It's not the events, however, that shape us--it's how we respond to them!

Upsidedown Oy is an insightful children's book written by Jude Scolnick. It's not just for children, though. Oy is a dog who had developed a daily routine and isn't open to altering that routine or trying new things. Our routines can, indeed, support our grown, yet they can also become the comfort zone that keeps us from growing.
