Push the Boundaries

Go Beyond

What Matters Most written in a time of calm within chaos

What Matters Most

By | Health Insights, Life 101, Metaphysics, Positive Thinking, Recovery, Self Improvement, Zen | No Comments

It’s so simple yet so freaking elusive. I thought I had it figured out; the thing of greatest value and what it is that matters most. Vitality, of course! Without vitality (aka, life force, energy or the capacity to do your work on this planet) what else really matters? Sure money is important and so is time. But we all know that money without time has no value. Just as we may now assume that money+time without vitality ultimately has no use. But is there something else? Something who’s value is even more fundamental such that in it’s absence, even worldly resources and the energy to make use of them would still fall short? I wondered. As if an answer to my pondering,  yesterday morning, I rummaged through some old file folders of mine and out popped this loose-leaf cryptic “note to self” paper I’d written when I was Ill for…

Change Your Attitude – The Power of Choice

By | Life 101, Lifestyle, Mind-Body, Physical Performance, Positive Thinking, Self Improvement, Zen | No Comments

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I’d never been so close to death, or so I felt. We’d been hiking for 3 days with no food and little water. Five hours ago the muscles up the back of my legs and base of my spine were cramping in spasm but now there was little energy for them to even attempt self-preservation, let alone power my staggering footsteps further up the mountain. I veered off the rocky path and collapsed into a heap, panting, sweating and freezing at the same time as the early spring sun set off the trail leading up to the top of Thunder Mountain, Bryce Canyon. My knee was shot, my body ached, my lungs gasped for air, my leg muscles where gone – completely done. And worst of all, so was I. The BOSS (Bolder Outdoor Survival School) instructor approached me out as my unit…

Don’t Chase Happiness, Chase “Hell Yes!”

By | Life 101, Positive Thinking, Uncategorized | One Comment

Let’s talk business for a sec. This business of “being happy”, aka the notion that our primary goal in life should be, to be supremely happy in all situations and at all times. (Just now, after I wrote that second sentence, I popped it into google out of curiosity and here is the first thing I found.) As a culture we hold this notion that business, wealth, success (and sometimes secrets) will guide us to happiness. We hold the precept that happiness is the goal. We’ve made a terrible mistake. Happiness is not the goal but the measure of success. It’s a metric. A feedback that let’s us know, as human beings, how in-line with our purpose and potential we are. Am I doing the work that suits me? Am I making use of my unique talents? Is my inner wisdom and creativity being freely expressed and fully appreciated? Am I supported…

The Art of Equanimity: Finding Calm In Chaos

By | Habit Design, Life 101, Lifestyle, Mental Perfomance, Zen | 3 Comments

 e·qua·nim·i·ty ˌēkwəˈnimitē,ˌekwə-/ noun mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. This word continues to take on new meaning for me. It first entered my lexicon in the fall of 2007 when I attended an intro to meditation class at the Tibet House on west 15th street. Everyone was going on about the virtue of equanimity and ways it could be practiced, and I didn’t know what the hell they were talking about. Years later, I’d begin to understand…  Some time, but not long ago, I found myself in a frenzy of turmoil, as the compounding losses of a relationship, a friendships and the lives of two people close to me, all coincided within a matter of weeks. From one day to the next, it seemed, all joy was lost. Excitement, extinguished. For the months that followed, I remember feeling challenged to find my center, and how even the…

Making Tea & Cookies

By | Explorations, Life 101, Positive Thinking, Self Improvement | 4 Comments

I swore after college that I’d never take another writing class as long as I lived… Some promises, perhaps, are better off broken. We’ll see…  This past Tuesday evening I found myself willingly sitting amid a classroom of writers in a YMCA Literary Arts, creative non-fiction class. Listening as my classmates read their work, it struck me how we all use the same words to form such distinct impressions. Below is my first assignment. Its’ message is simply this: We all start out with the same raw ingredients in life, be they words, concepts, or even tangible goods, to some degree. How we choose to combine them, and what we create from them, is the ultimate form of individual expression, that when woven together, forms the fabric of our lives. Here’s a short story I hope encapsulates this concept: Making Tea & Cookies         Emre set aside his blanket-pack…

The Eye of The I: A Book Review of Works That Started A Journey

By | Diet & Nutrtion, Explorations, Human Performance, Lifestyle, Zen | No Comments

One of the books that got me started several years ago down my path to personal evolution and the pursuit of absolute truth. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. David Hawkins describes and explains advanced states of consciousness and the way to spiritual Enlightenment. It includes dialogues with spiritual students worldwide. For the first time, a cogent and verifiable means of confirmation of spiritual reality is provided via an objective, replicable method of measurement, based on physiologically derived clinical evidence. I can recall reading the first time after a host of my own anomalous experiences and remember the profound sense of excitement I experience that I’d found a masterfully woven body of research and clinical experience to verify, support, and provide some rational explanation to the experiences I could only otherwise describe as extraordinary. In addition to introducing the now famous calibrated scale, or “map of consciousness,” Hawkins punctuates his work…
