CAN YOU SEE WHAT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES

By | Blog

A MORNING LIKE EVERY OTHER BUT SOMEHOW DIFFERENT

i woke up this morning, like i have every other morning, but today something was different. my eyes opened like usual, i sat to meditate like usual, i offered my prayers of gratitude as usual, i listened to my guided meditation as usual, but something felt somehow different. a shift happened allowing me to see for the very briefest of  moments not what i have been looking at but what was behind what i had been looking at. i saw differently.

it felt so good to see life from a different perspective, and then in a moment, it was gone. someone walked into the room and the strength of the stories we share together, pulled the carpet of the new something i was feeling that was different out from right under my feet, and i was back immersed in the same old thing i had always seen. stories of pain and suffering and of trying to help someone find their place in the world and know themselves again when it was none of my business to do so. how quickly the glimpse reality of what i saw changed. and yet, how ever fleeting that memory is, it lingers with me. i know that just behind what i see, something else exists. how thrilling.

these last few weeks, i am looking at the stories i repeat over and over in my head, in my language i use to tell those stories and in the memorisation of stories that i repeat word for word from a seeming script that i never even realised i had written.

STORIES THAT HOLD ME BACK AND LIMIT MY ABILITY TO SEE DIFFERENTLY

like an autistic child, i just keep repeating these stories as a way to communicate to a world i feel uncomfortable in. my stories fill the space of my emptiness, my words infiltrate the beliefs that continuously play like a scratched vinyl record going deeper and deeper into me, until i start to believe their stories, even though i know they are not true.

some of my script points read like this:

  • i can help you
  • when i look out at the world i see, i see a world that is separate and in constant argumentation with each other.
  • i see silos of like minded people, reinforcing what each other believe and alienating and attacking those who believe differently from them
  • everything that i love has and will be taken from me
  •  i am uninterested in living in a world where people behaves the way they are currently behaving
  • i have the honour and blessing of having a developmentally delayed daughter
  • i am a monk
  • i am so tired of people trying to sell me their services and telling me how great they used to be
  • i fell into a pothole and no longer realize how beautiful the road behind me and in front of me is
  • offering what i am to the world is just an act of prostitution
  • that i have any right at all to tell someone what to do or help them be better
  • and the list goes on and on

i woke up today and remembered who i am behind the stories that i tell you and myself. i woke up today and saw a person not in alignment with what i really believe.

i never made up my mind to believe differently than what i believe, but rather small, almost imperceivable shifts of thoughts over time became huge divides between who i am and what i believe. i was out of alignment with myself. here is one very simple example. i started to believe that the world was not a beautiful world, i started to see all the discord and fighting, all of which exists, but it blocked me from remembering the simplicity of this beautiful song and this beautiful world i live in.

THE REALITY I REALLY SEE BUT FORGOT I SEE

 

THE MOSAIC PODCAST

one of the reasons i love having The Mosaic Podcast is because it allows me to see the world i see differently. i get to meet and speak with people who surprise me every single day. lorna davis was one of these people. i discovered her trough her Ted Talk. she ran a major corporation and was responsible for bringing the oreo to china. when first introduced, the chinese people did not like it. they didn’t respond the way the rest of the world responded and she was given the job of finding out why.  when she listened to what the chinese were saying, she realized they needed to change the filling from the standard vanilla to a green tea flavour and in a moment, the oreo in china was launched.

over time, she came to realize that the hero way of thinking was holding back innovation and that there was a new way of collaborative leadership that allowed conversations to happen and solutions to be found. it was for these 2 reasons that i wanted to have her on my show. i never expected the conversation that emerged. a conversation that was so rich and insightful that i walked away feeling changed and inspired. i invite you to listen to that now.

WHEN WE CHANGE THE WAY WE SEE THE WORLD, THE WORLD WE SEE CHANGES

there is a very blessed and sacred moment, where what we have always seen, we suddenly see differently. in my book, The Mosaic this happens when Mo, the main character sits with the people he meets along his journey and listens to them tell him their stories. in 100% of the cases, the person he sees after hearing their stories is entirely different than the person he first saw.

to experience this reality, take 10 minutes out of the course of your life and sit with someone you have never met before, someone you seemingly share nothing in common with and just ask them how they are doing. what you discover may surprise you.

to experience a change of perception, you must be able to do in life what you must do here to see this picture differently. can you see the old hag AND the socialite;  can you see the old cowboy and the young cowboy. you can not see them at the same time, in order to see one you must change the way you see the other.

this basic skill will change the way you function n business, in your relationship, how you show up with your children, and how you live your life. enjoy the process of becoming aware of all that is right in front of you.

DOES WHAT YOU SEE, BLOCK YOU FROM SEEING WHAT ELSE IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES?

CHANCES ARE IT DOES.

 

BRINGING THE MONASTERY INTO THE MARKETPLACE

everything is connected. for far too long, i/we have lived compartmentalised lives. separating out who we are from our public persona, doing business one way and spirituality another. and this way of living has left us feeling unfulfilled and alone. feeling that the totality of who we are is not acceptable to the world around us. if you have felt this and feel like is time to mind hack that beleif and any others that keep you limited, i have come out from my monastery and returned to the marketplace, merging the businessman and the mystic to work with those who have achieved all they thought would bring them happiness but still find fulfilment to be elusive. if it is time for you to connect all the pieces of your mosaic, let talk about doing some wrk together.

everything you need is right in front of you. you do not need to search to find it. all you have to do is see differently. i will support you in that process. to work together, contact me.

may 2020 be the year of your perfect vision 20-20 and may you become all that you are. blessings and love.

 

ENJOY EVERYTHING

MANY YEARS AGO,
my late wife and i took our developmentally delayed daughter, Elisa to The Option Institute.
They had done some amazing work with autistic kids
and thought Elisa is not autistic, she is on the spectrum
and we wanted t see what they would suggest
for how we could best be with her.
that story is a different post
but there was one thing they noticed that changed my life.

they noticed, that i was a sucker for crying.
the moment our daughter started to cry, my heart melted
and i gave in to anything she wanted.
it happened over and over again
and when they called it to my attention, i saw it clearly.

so they asked me to record 15 minutes
of my favourite piece of music
and 15 minutes of elisa crying
and told me to listen with headphones on
to the full 30 minutes as least 3X a day
and then said to me,
when you get the same amount of pleasure from elisa crying
as you do from your favourite piece of music,
you can stop doing the exercise.

moments are just moments, sounds are just sounds,
feelings are just feelings
none of these have meaning
except for the meaning we give them.

ENJOY EVERYTHING
is the mantra i am trying on now
to see if i really believe,
everyone has the right to live theirs lives just as they see fit;
i am on the journey of love and acceptance
doing my best to love and accept people right where they are.

with people i don’t know it is easy.
with those closest to me, i have a much harder time.
one step at a time, i continue to move forward
making, making one day made.

how are you in this adventure?

THE SUPERCONSCIOUS MIND

By | Blog

IN A SOUL SESSION TODAY
i felt that
the soul of the person i was speaking to
wanted to increase the flow
they were allowing to move through them.
by both turning up the water pressure
and increasing the size of the hose

their soul said to me
there is so much more i want to give
than what you are letting come through.

as we spoke more, this person explained to me
all the work that they have done on themselves
affirmations, law of attraction, hypnosis, body work
and then i heard their soul ask me to tell them:
“the answer to your tension is not found
in the conscious or unconscious mind,
you must experience THE SUPERCONSCIOUS MIND.”

the superconscious mind elevates
it neither rationalises nor explains
it is the place where problems cease to exist.

i would watch people come to my teacher,
Swami Kriyananda wanting him to answer their questions
and after sitting with him a few moments in meditation
their could no longer remember the question
they wanted to ask.
they were then told to write their questions down
and they would come with a list of written down questions
they would meditate together with him
and then he would ask them to ask their questions.
they would look the list
and say to him none of my questions make sense now.

all of us have the ability
to tune into the superconscious mind
to listen to the voice of our soul.
when we quiet the noise within us and simply listen
our soul gives us more than we could ever dream possible.

to go beyond what you see
i invite you to read The Mosaic
available on Amazon
everything in it’s story
is about how what we see is not what is
to buy the Mosaic on Amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

or perhaps you might be interested in a soul session
where together we quiet the noise around you
and listen to what your soul is saying to you
message me for more information

or maybe you just want to experience The Mosaic Cards
a free card reading that offers 3 new perspectives
to any question you want to ask.

The Mosaic Mind is the superconscious mind.
if i can help you to experience it, it would be my honor.

SOUL SESSIONS

By | Blog

GETTING EMAILS THAT START LIKE THIS FEELS GREAT.

“All is well and I feel like I am growing in leaps and bounds! I was thinking about our conversation when we were talking about helping to shift the soul of an organization. . . ”

SOUL SESSIONS connect you to you.
the most important voice we could ever hear
is the voice of our very own soul.
it connects you to your answers.

but sometimes it is hard for us to hear our souls
because the noise we listen to blocks the whisper of the soul.

The Mosaic (available on Amazon) has awakened in me
the ability to sit in the quiet of you and listen to your soul
if you would like to hear the voice of your soul,
lets have a conversation
to see how together we can make that happen.

when each of us take care of each other, miracles happen.
if you are interested in Soul Sessions, contact me.
may the voice of your soul always guide you.

THE VOICE OF YOUR SOUL

By | Blog

I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I WAS IN THE WILDERNESS,
everything appear so different,
without the lights of the city, the stars were magnificent,
without the noise of constant motion, i could hear the silence,

the way of the outer world is the way of the inner world too,
to hear the whisper of the soul,
you must quiet the constant motion of your mind.

of all the sounds you could ever hear
the sound of your soul is the most intoxicating
the most thrilling, the most peaceful.
you soul so wants you to hear its whispers

practice the practice of stillness,
experience the sound of quiet
create the space within you to know peace.

when the piece knows peace
The Mosaic that forms around it spreads peace.
peace by piece
this is the way of The Mosaic.

i invite you to read The Mosaic
everything in it’s story
is about how the connections we make create the life we live.
to buy the Mosaic on Amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS

By | Blog

” MIND BOGGLING”
if you haven’t seen The Great Hack on Netflix,
it will blow your mind.

i have no idea how true or false it is
but when i watched it, i realized
the reason we are now so much more divided
than we have ever been
is because data is being gathered on every one of us,
they know what we like and what we don’t like
what triggers us and what our weak points are
and government, corporations, companies are using that data
to persuade us to think the way they want us to think.

they are feeding us images and stories that incite us
make us mad, play on our underlying insecurities
foster our hatred and position us against one another

and because they are secretly mining our data
all of this is happening without us even knowing,
they are putting pressure on our pressure points
to make those who are undecided lean towards them.

it is happening everywhere now
because we are so consumed by the internet
our privacy has vanished
and our data has become
a weapon that they are using against us
to manipulate us into thinking what they want us to think.

when The Mosaic wrote through me,
“Nothing is as it seems.”
i had no idea the implication it was showing me.
it is time to see what we do not see
to create a new paradigm
because with this sales of data
democracy at the very core is eroding.

i am so sorry to post such a post
but i watched TheGreat Hack last night
and i have spent every moment since praying for an answer.

we have to see what is happening,
see what we do not see
and come together to create a world in which a few
do not separate the many for their own benefit.

if this movie is not true, (and i believe it is)
then the situation it portrays is too close at hand to sit by
and do nothing.

please share with me your thoughts.

EVERYTHING IS SACRED.

By | Blog

everything is changing. everything remains the same.
there is a sacredness that has always been
in every breath and every molecule,
in the living and the not alive
i am only now feeling it.

The Mosaic awoke something is me
a connectedness that is so tangible and real
that sometimes i hear you and feel you
as if you are me because you ARE me.

people speak of dimensional changes,
i do not understand their words,
but i feel what they are talking about happening within me.

i am becoming hyper sensitive
my monastery has become wall less
and i sit in my home,
with excess weight on me trying to protect myself
from things that do not scare me
but things that i do not understand.

i feel you,
when i see you. when i speak with you.
when i pass you on the street or sit in a crowd with you,
when you email me or post a post on facebook.

i love you, deeply.
in healing we, we heal.

as i read this to my wife and asked if this was too pretentious,
she responded, “it is real.”
and continued by saying,
“i think it important to start talking about this.
to not be ashamed or embarrassed or afraid of judgement.
it is time to start real dialogue around this empath journey.”

i agree.
care to share your experience.
i am here for you.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR AMERICA?

By | Blog

The Mueller Report

does anyone feel differently today after
all of this dodgeball testimony, than they did before.

democrats acknowledge it was not what they were wishing for
but say the “facts” that came out one boring piece at a time
paint a picture of lying, obstruction and immorality.

the republicans say, it was a bad day for democrats
nothing they were hoping for came out
they paint a picture of a witch hunt and a vindictive party
that still can’t accept that they lost

when will we see,
the answers this county needs are not outside of us
but inside of us.

as i sat and watch “legaleeze” win over truth
while i watched the not answering of questions,
while i watched the certainty of ego
each side came to the hearing with
while i watched shame and the blame
march unobstructed through a battlefield of obstruction.
while i watched lies and liars, spin truth for their own sake

i remembered a court case i was involved in years ago
where the lawyers said whatever they needed to say to win
while the truth sat alone in the corner becoming unimportant

i asked myself then and again today,
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR AMERICA?

when will we stop the lies and start to speak the truth?
if our children were acting the way our leaders are acting,
we would not be happy with their action.
we have fallen from what has made us who we are.

every civilisation has fallen,
the Mayans, the Incas, The Aztecs,
the Roman Empire, The Spanish, and the English
the story repeats itself constantly.
why do we think the USA will not one day fall?

people fall when they become too proud
when they think
they are beyond the consequences of their actions.
it is darwinian at it best,
the survival of the fittest.

When we lose integrity, we lose our way.
when the end justifies the means, we lose our core values
when fighting becomes the norm and the unity the exception,
we lose freedom.

for all who cherish freedom,
WE ARE THE MINORITY OF THE ONE BILLION.

WE HAVE WORK TO DO. LETS DO IT TOGETHER.

ANOTHER VERY VULNERABLE SHARE

it is so nice when suddenly out of the blue
I receive confirmation for the things I feel.

i have been pretty forthcoming
sharing my vulnerability with people
about feeling that there is a new way for me to be in the world

i have become disillusioned
with the merchant like mentality of our interactions.
we seem to be endlessly engaged in selling ourselves
or being sold services by others.
the process, which i for many years engaged in too
has left me feeling empty.

for the last year, i have been feeling a change within me.
i have been sitting, meditating, praying, listening,
and practicing patience
and in the past i have not been a very patient person.
i have been frustrated, scared, called crazy,
lectured to, told by others what to do;
i have more heads shaken at me, fingers pointed at me
and opinions shade with me than ever before in my life.

and, i have felt more grace, more love of god, more content;
i have felt my walls dropping and my sensitivity rising;
i have felt the bliss of surrender
and the sacredness of living in the now.
i am feeling more, fighting less, loving more, rationalising less
serving more, worrying about what you think less,
i have been more peaceful and less stressed,
i have spoken less and been quiet more
and in the quiet i am feeling a resurgence of my soul
on my connection to who i really am.

i feel more trust,
guided by an inner voice that sometimes scares me
not because i am afraid to do what it says
but rather because i do not know how to do it.
i have spent hours sitting going deep inside
rather than hunting and searching for people to help.
my mantra has been to be like a flower
that opens it petals to release an aroma
that is so intoxicating that any one who passes by it
can do nothing else but stop a moment to smell it.

over these last days, i have started to receive confirmation
that solutions come when i listen to my soul.
i have known this for decades,
but in my desire to take care of my self and my family,
i have forgotten to listen to the one who takes care of me.

thank you being patient with me
and for holding the space for me to trust again
to keep going in the direction of my inner truth
to know there is a way we can work together
where each of us become a part of our decision to do so.
it takes trust, lots of trust
and it feels so right, so beautiful, so intoxicating
to do business in this way.

if anyone is interested to further this conversation,
please reach out to me and contact me.
let talk, work, love soul to soul.

we have work to do. lets do it together.

ARE YOU ABLE TO HEAR THE VOICE OF YOUR SOUL?

By | Blog

MORE AND MORE, I SEE
many of the most important things for me to hear
do not come in shouts or protestations of those around me
but rather in the quiet whispers of my own soul.
whispers so gentle and subtle,
that they are so easy to miss,
and i am sure i have missed many of them.

but as i quiet the noise around me
and take down the walls that have protected me
the whispers of my soul become easier to hear.

what has been mind boggling to me
is that from this place of listening to my own soul
i am able to hear the souls of other people too
and as i listen more,
it has invited me to work with others
to remind them of what their soul is saying to them.
such a beautiful gift to be able to share with people
the messages their soul is saying to them.

The Mosaic (available on Amazon) whispers to you soul.
As my friend, Jody Doty, Soul Reader wrote in her testimonial,

“The Mosaic is like taking a walk with your soul. It is a journey not to be missed.”

If you feel caught up in the noise of the world around you
and have longed once again to hear the voice of your soul,
lets talk about doing some Soul Session Work together
and please buy a copy of The Mosaic
and allow its words and its vibration to whisper to your soul.
