What is the meaning and purpose of Life? Not just your individual life, but all of it? Is there some grand design or direction to it? Have you ever thought about these questions? They are important ones because your individual life purpose is woven into the ultimate life purpose... of all of creation.
The better you can understand purpose and meaning on the grand cosmic scale, the better you will understand your own individual life purpose. We are a part of the Universe. That cosmic scale includes you and me.
Feeling a lack of purpose, direction and motivation is not unusual. Many people experience it. But few people have really tried to face it head on, openly and honestly. Without become conscious of your life purpose... you will be living a half-life; mostly driven by your unconscious patterns and karma.
This is the final Facebook live video in the series focusing on anger. In it I share many of the same tools and contemplations that were explored in our coaching session in person.
It gives a clear path to finding resolution to your anger. I also took the opportunity to do a short meditation with those who were watching live. You can benefit from it as well.
Remember that making changes in yourself and in your life is a process.
It requires effort… diligence… and a willingness to change. But it is so worth it. When you see that you can become the master of your emotions, your mind… and understand your experiences deeply from a spiritual perspective…
There is nothing like that. It is so valuable… I wish that everyone could have that. That is why I share yoga and teach yoga.
Hello friends. This is the third video in the series exploring anger. So far there has been great support to the Wisdom Wednesday program so I am happy to keep going!
Quite a few of my students tune in for the conversation live... and even more tell me about watching the recording afterwards.
Let me just say... remember that knowledge without attempting to apply it and use it... is wasted knowledge.
It is important to digest the knowledge the is arising in these conversations and try to practice it in dialy life.
When you try to apply it is when you will see some degree of success or change. Slowly over time this cultivates a sense of wisdom.
The sense of wisdom is simply being able to see your challenges that are within you and around you, and know how to work skillfully with them.
When your wisdom sense starts growing... that is the beginning of a peaceful, harmonious life. That is the beginning of aligning with the deeper spiritual principles in the Universe.
Ok in this episode we explore:
> Working with energy
> The skill of witnessing
> The skill of transforming energy
These are critical to our goal of self-mastery! But I will leave it to you to connect with the relevance and importance in your own life.
Thank you all for the overwhelming positive response to this initiative... Wisdom Wednesday! This is my second episode. In this week I shared the spiritual purpose of anger. But of course we need to learn to resolve our unconscious patterns with anger before we can learn to use anger consciously.
You can watch the video and read on from my notes. I hope that you will continue to reflect on anger in your life.
Check out this video... my first ever Wisdom Wednesday Live Video. Looking forward to doing many more. In this program we talked about the energy experience of anger, the dangers of anger, and understanding its cause.
I also gave some homework for those who are serious about mastering anger in their lives. You can also read some of my notes in this blog post.

Are you thinking of beginning your journey in Yoga? There are a few important details for you to think about. I want to help you find the class that is right for you.
I have been sharing and teaching yoga for some years now and I have observed a few useful keys about people starting Yoga that can help you.
Don’t get started without being well informed about your options. Otherwise there are a few negative possibilities.
I have been helping people find what they want in Yoga. If my class is not the right fit for my client’s personal goals, I send them to another class that I think is better suited.
That makes me feel fulfilled because I know that Yoga has something to offer that person and I want to find the right place for them to benefit.
So let’s take a look and see if we can find you a class that will help you.
In my previous blog post we spoke about working with the inner energy in our meditation. Certainly working with the energy was a big shift for me. Once I began feeling the chakras and moving the energy my meditation became much more exciting.
But still there was a “problem,” – my own mind.
Whenever I sought to meditate I would work with my energy and try to quiet my mind. But it just felt impossible! Sometimes the mind would clear, like seeing the clouds part in the sky and light shining through.
There would be moments of clarity. Sometimes a bit of space and a fleeting experience of peace.
Most times there would be a parade of thoughts through my mind that I never seemed to be able to control.
It felt like I could not escape from the thinking.
It was at this point I was ripe for breakthrough number three. I needed to understand my own mental voice… the mental narrative and how to detach from it.
That is what I want to share with you in this blog post.
In a previous blog post I shared that managing my inner energy dramatically impacted my meditation. When we learn to experience our energy body and energy centers (chakras) our meditation practice becomes very powerful.
There is a lot shared about chakras and energy on the internet, but much of it is founded only in ideas and not experience. We may read about chakras and learn about the colors, mantra, crystals, and all that jazz… but that does not give us a tangible understanding of our energy centers.
Only experience can bring true understanding. I am writing this blog to help you have an experience of your energy and your energy centers.
In this post we will talk about the
