I’ve been practicing what I’m calling ‘no rules’ meditation lately. Here’s what I mean: No countdown timer set; No restriction on where I practice; No set time of day; No particular teacher or program; Perhaps most importantly, no ‘gaining idea‘.* Now, what actually happens is that I typically still practice early in the morning asContinue reading “‘No Rules’ Meditation”

Metabolism of what you eat and drink on Monday does not begin at the end of the day. Metabolism of what you eat and drink on Monday continues past Tuesday. Metabolism of what you eat and drink on Monday is affected by what you ate and drank on Saturday & Sunday. Metabolism of what youContinue reading “Monday’s Metabolism”
When is the last time that you just ate an apple? I’ve written about mindful chewing before. But even if you’re not going to follow those guidelines, how about the next time that you eat (anything), simply stopping everything else that you might normally try to do except for eating? This is simple, but itContinue reading “Just eat.”
There are many, many ways to ‘point the finger’ at someone else. Literally, of course. But how about … with a condescending tone; with a more subtle tone of disappointment; with judgmental body language; with silence or even apathy; with anger or frustration; with resentment … … the list goes on. Just remember: every timeContinue reading “Pointing”
It’s healthy to have an end date set. For your: program, goal, project, experiment … If you don’t know when it’s going to end, why are you starting in the first place? In addition, an end date forces you to either accomplish what you set out to, or not. If you enjoy beginning things withoutContinue reading “Endings.”
Cold Chicken For Breakfast.

There’s really no need to even heat them up; if I’m going out on the road, I just throw a few chicken thighs in some Tupperware and ‘voila’; healthy food on theContinue reading “Cold Chicken For Breakfast.”
As you can see, the root of the word ‘question’ is ‘quest’, or, search for knowledge. I’m often asked questions around the neighborhood about food. The thing is, most people aren’t ready to hear the real answer … … which more likely means that they’re not consciously aware of the depth of their own question.Continue reading “Quest_ions.”
‘More and less.’
From a young age, we learn the concept of ‘more or less’. This comes in very helpful when doing math; if Johnny has 7 apples, and Mary has 1, who has more apples? However, I don’t recall being taught that ‘more’ and ‘less’ are two sides of the same coin. By definition, Mary also hasContinue reading “‘More and less.’”
“Taking on the impossible shapes you into the person you need to be to fulfill it.” – Lynne Twist on ‘Insights at the Edge’ podcast with Tami Simon. It takes guts to tackle impossible problems. Yet at the same time, many of us feel lost, and struggle to ‘find our purpose’ in life. As LynneContinue reading “Impossible?”
How Do You Not Do [that thing]?
The most common question I get when I tell people that I’ve been blogging once every single day for almost nine years (as of today) is to the effect of: ‘How?’ ‘How do you do that? Every day?’ My most common response is Seth’s: ‘Do you talk every day?’ Well, today, I’m offering my own,Continue reading “How Do You Not Do [that thing]?”
