The Time is Always NOW

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too

 

Stevie Nicks, Landslide

 

If you’re my generation you can probably hear Stevie Nicks belting out those words as you read them. When I heard those lyrics in a yoga class this morning, I almost fell out of my tree pose.

Not in a morbid, depressing way, but a real, vivid, holy shit kind of way.

Not in an urgent, anxious kind of way, but a peaceful, this-is-it kind of way.

Connected to the bigger picture, the larger cycle of life, where children are getting older as we are, and living in this moment is of primary importance because that’s all there is folks! Don’t let a crisis be the impetus for putting what you truly value on center stage.

So, so, so many of our worries today will be so, so, so irrelevant, not just at the end of our lives, but next year, or even next week. Most of them will be.

The sad reality is that so many people live with worries and fears everyday that simply will never materialize. As Mark Twain says “I’ve lived a life of many sorrows, most of which never happened”.

 

The world lost an inspirational leader this week. Scott Dinsmore, 29, creator of Live Your Legend, died in a freak accident climbing Mount Kilamanjaro. Scott was passionate about people finding and doing the work they love while on this planet. He said it better than anyone else I know. Listen to his TED talk at the link below and you might also fall out of your tree. Hug those you love today 🙂

You are Your Own Guru

If there is one thing human beings are not running short of, it’s gurus.  We have been worshipping idols from the beginning, and it’s not the worshipping itself that is problematic. In fact, it can be wonderful to find a person, character, archetype or God who embodies what resonates with

Aging in Seasons

I was in a grocery store the other day and I was eavesdropping in on a conversation between an elderly woman and a young sales clerk. This young man listened intently to the woman and her question, and it expanded into a full conversation about her life, where she lived,
