    What this is not: A wishy-washy, positive thinking, pie-in-the-sky idea about changing the world. I will not be advocating the power of group meditation, overthrowing the powers that be or anything else that can be easily scoffed at.What this is: A three-part series covering logical AND tangible ways to instigate awesome change on a global scale. I will cover the following concepts in order:The single change the world needs most dearly How real change occurs The specific mission I think will bring about those changes. This has been formulating in my mind for the better part of 4 years, culminating in the last few months. It's suffice to say that I am very excited to be sharing this with all of you.

    The True Nature of Happiness

    Ultimate happiness is a tricky mistress, always hanging just around the corner with promising smiles and wiles. Or at least it seems this way until you realize that...Happiness does not come from a state, but from a change of state.In other words, happiness does not come from the prize, but in the process of attaining that prize. It's a journey, not a destination.Once that end goal is achieved, the satisfaction quickly degrades until we're left looking for the next high.You might be thinking - but WHY? Why does everything so rapidly lose its luster?

    The Real Meaning Behind Your Dreams

    Why We Argue

    WIthin the animal kingdom, if you’re a lion, and another lion encroaches on your territory, you roar and growl to let the other guy know this is your space. Testing the water, he roars and growls right back at you. Often, after a series of traded threats, the outsider will stand down, and the argument dissipates. Occasionally, the other lion does not back off and a bloody fight ensues until one is mortally injured or submits. Sound familiar? How often do we argue with our significant others, our siblings, our parents, our friends with the overwhelming need to be right, to be the victor? And what’s wrong with that? Well, wrong is a matter of perspective, but I will say that we are not lions...most of us, anyway.

    How To Install a Power-Up Button On Your Body

    For the last few months I have been habitually drawing a thin circle on the top of my left hand. The idea was that every time I noticed this circle, I would be reminded/compelled to return to a present, zen state. This worked so well that I decided to have it tattooed on a few nights ago.I've since discovered the immense potential (and fun) of attributing specific 'powers' to parts of your body or objects. Read on to understand what I'm talking about!
