This is your life. Every minute. Every moment. You. Are. Alive.

KARMIC-LOGOThis is your life.

  • Every minute.
  • Every moment.
  • You.
  • Are.
  • Alive.

How many moments in the last day have you been intensely and acutely alive?

How about in the last week?

The last month?

Actually, the answer is all of them.

Every moment you’ve been intensely and incredibly alive.

You can’t numb yourself to the intense aliveness that IS you.

Pinch yourself.

Underneath it all – the foibles, the frailties the fears and the phobias, and You couldn’t be an ounce more alive than you are right now.

The secret is to know it.

To embrace the obvious.

This is your life. This. is. your. Life. This moment. Right NOW.

This is a moment you will never, ever, forever and never ever…never get back.

Pinky promise.

So inhale it.

Embrace it.

And Love it no matter how much it’s not the moment you’d like it to be.

So simple, but yet, clearly not easy.

What do i need to give up, to wake up?

What do i need to let go of, to drop – to accept – to make this moment perfect?

Actually – you have nothing to do with it.

The moment already is, exactly as it is.

Just Lean back and let it be.

Our challenge?

The intuition, and motivation, that promises, with just the right amount of effort and energy – combined with the right amount of luck, things will be different than exactly how they are.

A perpetual push for something altogether different than what already is.

Much like both the Buddha, and Biggie Smalls both aptly said so very well:

It is what it is.

I remember when i Was a kid – maybe 8 or 10 or 12 – i would look at the world – the little world that was mine – and see nothing but oceans of opportunity to experience and explore.

I would look down and consider my arms – my fingers and toes – and think – i am equipped for anything. I am ferociously free.

How lucky can i be?

The world is my playground.

For I can do anything.

I can reach up and stretch to the sky – i can move, run – dash in any direction – i can roll around and get dirty – i can scream and jump up and try to touch the stars…and when i land – – breathless and tired – i can rest for a moment, so I can begin, and experience it all yet again.

I am alive! how and why and what and where…..who cares?

For the beginners mind.

Being alive is enough.

The good news is, that never goes away.

It may feel a little bit silly when you start. (Again)

But the playground is always there.

And even after all of these years –

It hasn’t changed.

And really, underneath it all, neither have you.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I'm a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he's super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says " it's always NOW" when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You're making me nervous.
