Get Up Again When You Get Knocked Down

Photograph by Lee Down

Some days are brutal! I know you know what I mean. We’ve all had them! I’ve had so many metaphors run through my head for how this feels. Keeping your head above water when the world is pushing you under. (I thought it sounded to much related to cash) When you feel like a bobbing yo-yo. (a what?) That’s enough of that, the title says enough – like that song, “I get knocked down, but […]

Tweedle-Ant chats to Iman-Ant – Something About Life & Existence

There I was hovering over a busy ant-hill when thought I heard something. I leaned in a little closer to see what it was. You won’t believe it, but I’ll share it anyway. “Do you suppose there is any rhyme or reason to any of this?” Dweedle-Ant posed. “He He He! Of course, Mant! Of course! Just take a look at that cute little heiny and tell me that ain’t no reason. That’s a reason!” […]

Step-By-Step: The Way to the Goal

Anyone with a vision for their life must recognize that many qualities and actions are required to achieve that vision. All to often in our modern society we seek instant gratification as we’ve become accustomed to a consumer marketplace. Regardless of these conveniences, a seed of an idea holds tremendous potential when patience, perseverance, and action steps are applied over a period of time. Set-backs are often a common experience along the path toward goals. […]

Learning – The Hard Way

the hard way Originally uploaded by Karmalize There are those of us in life who must learn things the hard way. “Hello, nice to meet you.” No matter the reason, my being senses and feels things beyond what my mind accepts. It raises questions for me. Often they are questions that raise my own eyebrow at my sanity. Yet, the question remains with me until I find a way to satisfy the need to know […]

Cutting Corners

It’s something we all do. We’ve put so many systems and structues in place to manage our lives from cradle to grave. Sometimes, they impede our progress and we shave a few inches here or there to get where need to go. I was asked if it was okay to use a service in a way to further a mandate even if they weren’t meeting the criteria. This related to a specific program meant to […]

Received on Facebook | Working Together Feeds Better

A Swami was having a conversation with Lord Shiva one day and said: “Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.” Lord Shiva led the Swami to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the Swami looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the Swami’s mouth […]

Chasing the Rainbow | Live the Adventure

From the archives October 12, 2004 it doesn’t matter what your challenge is in life, the same principles apply. As children, hearing the fable of the pot-o-gold at the end of the rainbow, we were relentless in pursuing the rainbow. We were always sure that sooner or later we would find that pot-o-gold. Whenever we chase a dream, moving to a new city, a new country, taking a new job, stepping out as an entrepreneur, […]

Courage & Love Prevails

Issac Cordal-Berlin-Politicians Global Warming

Weary to the bones, feeling the heaviness and despair, the fatigue demands you to sit and breathe awhile. As you sit and withdraw within the burdened mind and heart, you pant for breath, for life to return. A gust of wind stirs and refreshes you momentarily, clearing away the dark thoughts of the day, the months, and the years, and you raise your head and eyes to observe. “How did I not notice this?” you […]
