And then you come across something like this and completely forget what the hell we’re all fighting about…
Mother Nature continues to inspire me…
I tried so hard to catch this with my crappy phone cam, so I gave up and researched it instead. Apparently Mars is pairing up with the half moon tonight. If you look out, you’ll notice a bright star directly above the moon (or somewhere nearby, depending on your location.)
Research shows that more people die from stroke or heart attack between 9 am and 11 am on Monday morning than at any other time in the week, the direct result of work-related psychological and physical factors which lead to a significant effect of stress during this time.
Hint: If you’d rather die than go to work, you may be in the wrong line of business.
If you haven’t heard of this yet, TROM is a 13 hour long documentary (yep, 13 hours) that discusses everything from the big bang to the current state of humanity, and everything else in between (religion, education, science, war, health, UFO’s, death… the list goes on and on.) Once you’ve gotten the bigger picture, it focuses on alternative solutions such as the Venus Project. Good stuff, worth a look!
When we react to something, what actually happens is that our brain thinks to itself, “Hmmm, where have I encountered a similar experience before?” and then it re-acts, meaning: acts again. It’s a simple survival mechanism, but it doesn’t have to run on automatic. At any given moment we have the option to pause and say: “Thanks, but no thanks.. This time I’m responding differently.”
And the day came when she realized that no spiritual teacher, guru, channeler, angel, ET, or priest had a closer connection to Source (God) than she did. She saw that they were nothing but signposts along the way, and that the signposts had always been pointing back at her. She was finally beginning to trust herself, and it was good.

The original post of this video disappeared so I just had to upload it again. It is such a powerful message and animation! Featuring the teachings of Bashar and Abraham Hicks. Enjoy!
The streets of Little Italy NYC were packed tonight and the place were buzzing with tourists, restaurant goers and street vendors. We were invited to a birthday party at a bar nearby, but I was more interested in sneaking out and photographing some of the amazing murals and art around the area. Little Italy has really turned into a hot spot for artists to showcase what they have to offer.
I’ve reached a point in my life where honesty and openness have become a priority. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always fulfilling. To stay true to myself is the ultimate freedom.
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

I love this movie.. Ever since I saw it I make way more of a conscious effort to go barefoot, lay on the grass, etc. Animals know to stay connected to the Earth and understand it’s natural healing qualities. It’s only us humans who go out of our way to separate ourselves with floors, carpets, shoes, socks, not to mention building our homes and offices higher and higher above the ground.

You are not seeing reality. You are seeing what you are believing. Stop believing and you will see more reality.

So THIS showed up overnight. I fall more and more in love with our neighborhood every day.
If you insist on contradicting your desires with “buts” all the time, (i.e. “I want to follow my passion BUT I don’t think I can make money from it”), try switching it around and adding a “but” to your doubts, instead. For example: “I don’t think I can make money from doing what I love…BUT…I know that others have done it so I’m willing to give it some more thought, maybe research the idea, and seek examples of those who make money from similar passions.”
Next time a doubt comes to mind, try adding a “but…” to that thought and see what you come up with. Your brain won’t know what hit it and your heart will thank you.

On our way back towards the city, I happened to catch this amazing shot of the sunset over the New York City skyline. It was only the day after that I found out this rare sighting is called Manhattanhenge, and only happens twice a year!
Did you know that your thoughts and feelings directly create your reality?
This is not a new concept, we do it all the time. The thoughts we think make us feel a certain way, and that feeling causes us to vibrate on a certain frequency – just like a radio dial tuning in to a certain station. Thoughts that make us feel bad have lower frequencies, and those that make us feel good have higher ones.
SO, what happens when you tune in to a certain frequency? Well, the same as when you tune in to a certain radio station – you get more of the same! That radio station (life) will continue to provide you with more and more things that match that low or high thought or feeling.
You can change the station, at any given moment, by reaching for a thought that makes you FEEL a little better than you do right now. The key word here is “feel” because your feelings and emotions will always be the indication of whether you are in a low or higher vibrational frequency.
Once you wake up, it’s hard to go back to sheep.
