A haven for being, doing, and then having an exceptional existence.
This video was inspiring to me and I hope that it grabs you as well. I know that there are so many people that are working so hard to blend in and not be noticed. There are also those who have decided that they have to just live in their truth and be who they really are. This takes so much courage because there will inevitably be some scrapes and burns along the way should you choose that path.
In one hour and a few minutes, I will have entered a new year of my existence. Each year that passes by, I am still amazed at how fast it travels by and how many lessons I am still learning about life and the people who live within it. I still have questions, still get thrown off track, and most of all, I still want to be an even better man.
It seems that people never really mature, they just rework their consciousness in direct proportion to what is most important to them. In other words, we do better, get better, and concentrate better on what actually soothes our souls. The rub is that most people will never know what its like to consistently do what they love to do for an extended amount of time and actually get used to it.
Remember when you were young and you looked at an adult and you thought to yourself, " Man, that guy is so old looking." Now you look at people and you say, "Those kids look so young!" Life does change and so does your perspec…
Well NYC is just a thick coil of energy and I would be surprised to meet anyone who feels differently about that. One of the centers in the city that always delivers is Union Square. As I walked through yesterday on my way to the train I was smacked by the energy of two different people and they both brought the magic in record time. I had to stop and connect with each one of them separately. I acted from my soul because it called me to do so. It felt so great and I did not feel the time go by during these two interactions.
The first person that I connected with was a young man named Aaron. He was rolling around on these roller blade like wheels. I found out shortly after that they are called Free Line Skates .The fascinating part was that there were two wheels under each foot, however, they were separately working on their own. I have included a picture above so that you can understand what I am saying. These skates have flat surfaces on the top and that is where you place yo…
Musicians are all over the world. They play instruments, sing, and so many other things. The magic in all of this is that its all a process that just comes together on stage and seems so easy. I am here to tell you that it is certainly not, but it can be worked on diligently to make it seem so. I am fascinated by what it takes to perform on stage, yet I do it like I am lifting a toothbrush up to my mouth most nights. This not to say that it is not a struggle at times or that I am some sort of master, I have just done it so many times.
This posting was inspired by a great friend of mine named Jeri Silverman. She and I have known each other for quite some time and I fully support her journey. She is most definitely a talented artist who is relentlessly pursuing her dreams and I respect it. I watched her closely a few nights ago as she played with her band at a local club. I was playing closer attention than usual on this particular night. I wanted to give her my honest opinion fro…
