All In A Day's Journey

Living here in NYC is like walking through a Broadway show. You don't have to play a role if you don't want to. However, the show goes on around you whether you like it or not. Of course we are all playing a role, we just lose sight of that at times.

   I saw a line wrapped around a block today and it stopped me cold. I could not figure out how all of these people were waiting for food in the middle of the day??? Then I asked a young lady that was holding some flyers. She told me that they were officially opening tomorrow and today they were offering free lunches.  So I guess there are free lunches for time to time, despite the sentence that has told us otherwise for our entire lives. All things are possible right?

   At a different location, I ate with my student. I engaged with a worker there and I was so impressed with his warmth and openness. It was as if we were truly family. He was so good at what he does and I told him so. Its an uncomfortable reality these days tha…

Stimulation Through Frustration

Life has a funny way of getting your attention. It isn't usually in the fashion that you think it would be, but it happens all of the time. I love how we can be inspired by the things that frustrate us instead of just things that make us happy or elated.

        In business, we will not always see eye to eye with those who hire us. This goes without saying.
However, how many of us will forge a new path based on that alone? If we are truly just less than satisfied with the outcome of he situation, how long will it take for us to break away and just breathe some new air so we can function going forward. This is a question that you would have to answer on your own.

         Just to give you a basic back story of a certain situation, there is a man who has a stream of income. He does not have to work for it, the money comes in a few times a month and it pays all of the bills quite comfortably. Because he has leveraged the actual work that has to be taken care of, he can dictat…

Warm Hearted Behavior

It's no secret that I love people. The way that they speak and the decisions that they make continue to inspire me beyond measure. As a human being, I am sure I am being studied as well. There is always someone watching.

   I was on my way to give a lesson to one of my favorite students. Actually I love all my students, so that last sentence was not necessary. Anyhow, before my lesson I love key to pick up a fresh juice from the store a block away. The workers are very nice and we greet each other like we have been old friends for years. On this particular day, there was a man that I had not seen in the past. I mentioned to him that I had a sore throat and felt some congestion. He recommended a certain juice and I took his advice. We then spoke about a few of the other juices and their strong points as well. He was very hands on and seemed generally concerned that I was properly taken care of during my visit.

    Truth be told, I was feeling really great about haw the place fe…

Our Story Vs. Our Truth

I am back in the swing of the rhythm and digging into some deep subject matter yet again. What a rush of teachable moments are upon me right now. In the past week I have been pondering some of my most prominent thoughts for longer than usual. I know for sure that the title of this particular entry could keep me writing for hours, however, I'll spare you the long version. For sure you have many things to do.

      Over the past few weeks or so, I have been speaking and doing more than I have been writing. Although that is not necessarily a bad thing, I am sure that my best work comes when I write in the evening before I close my eyes, as well as when I start my day. It sets the mind up in a completely different fashion. It's no secret how true this is in my own mind, however, I have been getting distracted I admit.

       When we are sure that we are existing within our truth, things seem to be so smooth for the most part. On the other side of things, when we are just mar…
