No one starts in the same place, or is triggered by the same reasons. For some people it's something traumatic, or dramatic, that opens their eyes and makes them want more than what they see.  For others it's an experience, a place, a book, a person, an introduction to something that suddenly leads them down a path they never imagined.  And some are just born with a desire swirling in their stomachs, their spirit alrea...

There's a Tribe of people out there, my tribe! It's made up of Dreamers, Chasers, Artists and Adventurers. Those truly pursuing a lifestyle filled with Growth, Spirituality, Travel, the Warrior's Way, Dance, Art, Music, Creation, Self knowledge, Health, Wisdom and Freedom.

We Travel the world to find those pieces of ourselves calling to us, wanting to experience views from mountain tops, and see the sunset over oceans.

We need t...

There's a short story that is one of my favourites, it goes:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. He tells him that, 'there is a battle going on inside of you between two wolves. '

One is Evil- he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is Good- he is peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,...

Have you ever felt like you don't fit in, like an Outsider- Loner- Hermit, a self imposed Outcast in the wilderness, where you live in a cave, wash in the river, hunt and communicate with the trees, stars, sun and moon, while looking down on the rest of the world from some forgotten, lonely mountain.

Have you ever had that feeling of standing on the outside of the world everyone else lives in, watching all the groups of people...

I was sitting on the train last week and out of the corner of my eye I saw a grown man making funny faces at his little baby while the child sat in its pram smiling and giggling  I watched this grown man, on a semi crowded train, lost in the simple task of being silly, just to see the face of his infant child light up at his actions and I thought to myself, 'wouldn't it be an amazing thing if babies were the Leaders of the wor...

If I were the creator of life and all things, the being to which everyone always asks a million questions about the purpose of life, our place in the universe, and a dozen 'why's?'  Maybe I'd write the world a letter to try and put things into perspective.

I think I'd start the letter off by telling you that creating is hard, and surprisingly unpredictable work, and the first thing you have to understand is that I am trying my...

There's music in the Storm, a rhythm and flow to the way it rages; the crashing of the waves the strumming of nature's guitar, the fall of the rain hitting the world like fingers pressing down on the keys of a piano, the howling of the wind a horn section blowing out funk, and the crack of thunder the bass and snare of the drums.  If you listen close you'll hear the melody, pulling, calling, challenging, daring you to dance, t...

I'm here to tell you that it's OK, you don't need to worry, be sorry, or expect unrealistic things of yourself.  I want to let you know that none of us are prepared for life.  We're born naked and helpless, victims of circumstance, unable to chose when, where or how we come into, and learn about, this world.   

As new born babies we're unable to feed ourselves, walk, or communicate, our physical and mental fates...

Reality is a myth.  We may all inhabit the same world, filled with the same trees, oceans, mountains and sky, but we all have difference perspectives of Reality, all seeing the world differently as a result of our circumstances, upbringing and experience. 

The Reality of a poor person in poverty will be at opposite ends of the spectrum to the Reality of someone born privileged and rich.  Some people see security and the ea...

We always see Time as this passing thing, the clock ticking, the days going by, never having enough of it, wanting to go back and change it.  In a way we always feel like it’s something we’re against, because we can’t stop it.  But what if Time was simply something we didn’t understand how to use?

What if Time wasn't something that passes us by, but something that passes into us, absorbed by us like a flower absorbs the en...
