What would it feel like

On a cellular level

If you’d reached the pinnacle

Of whatever you’ve imagined

And longed for

your entire life?

Perhaps it’s a job

Or financial status.

Perhaps it’s a spiritual ideal.

Regardless what you envision as the Ultimate,

What would it actually FEEL like? 

How would you act?

How would you move?

What thoughts would predominate your thinking? 

If you were living that life


Goals and aspirations are important. 

But visualization and action is far more valuable. 

Hint: you’re already there. 


Through meditation we align ourselves with the flow of the Universe.

If during normal daily debacles we become misaligned to this flow,

the practices herein bring us back.

It is as if in the course of living this life we find ourselves situated in a perpendicular fashion to the natural flow

less than aerodynamic

less than streamlined

And so the practice of sitting

The practice of silent contemplation

The practice of prayer

Returns us to the NOW

and points us back into the Universal wind of


This too

Find yourself in a place of wonder

Of amazement

Of bliss. 

Find yourself in a state of rapture

Of purity

Of awareness and peace 

Find yourself in a creative mood

A state of abundance

An essence of gratitude 
This too is possible.

With practice. 


The road is closed.

You shouldn’t even bother going. 

Never mind there is certainly an alternate route.

One with new turns.

And new twists. 

With new scenery.

And new people to meet.

With new experiences to be embraced. 

But you shouldn’t bother going. 

Because the road is closed. 

And to be a seeker is too scary.

Too unpredictable. 

Possibly uncomfortable. 

And yet…

You go anyway.

You risk the alternate route.

You trust that there will always be parking. 

And you enjoy the ride.

Because predictability is boring.

And this life is short. 

So go.

And be.


You can thank me later. 


What is real?

The list is short. 

Everything else is…






Living in the NOW means to be ever working toward self tuning

Toward realigning

Toward calibrating 

Knowing fully that “it” will never quite be perfect 

And that this truth

This realization

Is the point.
