2014…2015 – Isolation, Separation, Transformation

2014…2015 – Isolation, Separation, Transformation

Well, it’s that time of year—time to reflect on 2014 and look ahead to 2015. Ending a 4-year relationship, moving to new places, and starting a completely new chapter of life have characterized my 2014. To say it was not an easy year would be an understatement; 2014 was a challenging year for me by all accounts. However, 2014 was also one of the most important years I’ve had on this planet of ours—a year during which I had to take a hard look at my life, exercise a large amount of courage, and admit to myself that I was going in a direction that was not authentic for me. So,...

Happiness First

Happiness First

Have you ever considered that the goal behind every goal you’ve ever set in your life was happiness? Think about it. “I will lose 10 pounds”, “I will become financially free”, “I will find true love”, “I will volunteer in a third world country”, all have one thing in common – we believe these accomplishments will make us happy. But here’s the IRONIC thing. If we work so hard to lose weight, to make money, to have a relationship, because we believe these things will bring us happiness down the road, why then wait?? Why not prioritize HAPPINESS FIRST and then go after...

Eliminating Limiting Beliefs

Throughout my adult life, I have encountered and experimented with dozens of personal transformation practices. One stands out above all. This one particular practice is based on a simple, yet extremely powerful, internal process that deals with the very deepest root of a problem, rather than just the problem itself. You see, there is an entire world of philosophies, theories, and ideas about what constitutes the most effective approach for behavioral transformation and lasting happiness. There are self-help books, therapies, remedies, classes, retreats, seminars, personal development...

Unstoppable Motivation

Unstoppable Motivation

It has happened to all of us at some point of our life. We start out on a journey, full of passion and excitement. We make a good beginning and seem to be progressing towards our goals quite well but as we go along the way, we loose sight of the destination. We feel fatigue and begin to procrastinate. Every step becomes harder to take and longer to complete. We are unmotivated. Some people would call this a burnout; others may say a bad month. I call it a motivational slump and I’ve just hit it in full swing.   Hitting the Slump I had great plans for this month. Building a library...

Sensual Living

“A few times in my life I have had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds the silence drowned out the noise and I could feel rather than think. When things seemed so sharp and the world seemed so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I could never make these moments last. I tried to clng to them, but like everything else, they faded away in due time. I’ve lived my life for these moments. They pull me back to the present and it’s then that I realize everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.,,,”   These final words from the...

Becoming Productive

It’s 6:00pm and you’ve just had another long day at work. You check through your emails one last time and notice that once again, you’ve left most of the important work unfinished. You’re a bit stressed about some deadlines, but your increasingly growing headache from a rough day at work convinces you to retire home early. Does this scenario sound familiar to you? Do you ever have those weeks where you just wonder where all the hours have gone? Do you sometimes get frustrated about not being able to focus on your most important tasks?
