The Arrest

Out past Yarrowville the trouble began. We were on a small, two-lane road, very straight, lined by tall yew trees standing naked to the sky, like anorexic models. As the Eagles declared I’m already gone, Joey’s foot hit the floor. The speedometer rose steadily, 50, 55, 60, on and on it went.  “We have to […]


Recreate Yourself

Many centuries ago, the poet Bunan wrote: Die while alive, 
And be absolutely dead. Then do whatever you want; It’s all good. Bunan is not talking about a physical death, or causing any harm to the body. He is talking about a willingness to let go constantly of the definitions you have placed upon yourself, […]


Relax and Wait

The key to accessing a deeper source of thought and action is the willingness to relax and wait. In Iago’s trance, “I don’t know” is to be avoided at all costs. Translucent action requires the wisdom of “I don’t know” as its firm foundation. Through practice, we come to recognize that the thought machine is […]


Why do we get addicted?

Why do people smoke cigarettes, or eat junk food, or look at pornography on the internet? You would be astounded by the statistics of how many males in the United States look at pornography on the internet. I have worked with many people who had that kind of addiction going on. A client will say […]


No Preparation Required

Suppose your glasses are sitting on your nose, but you have the idea, “I’ve lost my glasses.” You look under the sofa-not there.  You look under the cushions-not there.  You look under your bed, you look on top of the medicine cabinets, you look in your car, you look in the garden; you conduct a […]


How to Find the Right Coach

It is hard to believe that modern day life coaching is a profession that is less than 25 years old. Go back to the late 80’s and if anyone said “I’m a coach” the immediate answer would be, “Oh really, what sport?” Today there are life coaches, relationship coaches, executive coaches, divorce coaches, wellness coaches, […]


Why Do We Avoid our Greatness?

I’ve written eight books so far, and I just came out with the latest one, Better Than Sex. The books that I’ve written previously were a little more erudite, many had footnotes, a long bibliography, and careful references. About a year ago I realized “Hey, I’m in my 50’s, sooner or later I’ve just got […]


Another F**king Growth Opportunity!!

I’m just back from four weeks of traveling in Austria and Germany. It was an extremely rewarding and intense tour through many German cities, culminating in the residential Awakening Coaching Training. Traveling around the world over the last many years has been a great privilege. It has given me an insight into what’s going on […]


The Real Conspiracy

Every now and then people send me email, or stop me urgently in the grocery store, to share the dire news of how we are all being manipulated by dark forces lurking in the shadows. I get regular updates about chem-trails, aliens in charge of government, and attempts by multi-national pharmaceuticals to robs us of […]


How to become Instantly more Kissable

I woke up a few days ago, and found a interesting little piece in Elephant  Journal called “Take off Your {Fake} Face.” Waylon Lewis suggests “go au naturel (on your face, at least), or wear a bit less—and maybe you’ll be even more kissable!” He includes there a link to 52 pictures, on the NY […]


How to Enjoy a Good Fight

A few years ago, when my children were still young, we had two of everything in my house, just like Noah. My eldest son had two white mice in his room, who lived in a cage. My younger son has two adorable rats: perhaps the most caring and innocent sentient beings I have had the […]


Masculine and Feminine Energies

When a man is run by masculine energy without any conscious presence brought to it, without any element of awakening, he is going to be run by the more unconscious aspects of the masculine. These are the qualities that are generally least attractive to the feminine. Some examples would be destructive competitiveness, being over-analytical and […]


It starts with You

‘Tis the season to be jolly. ‘Tis also the season to do massive amount of business, if you are Best Buy, Amazon, or Macy’s.  And, if you happen to be a slightly plump turkey, ’tis the season to keep a very low profile indeed, and hope to go unnoticed. Some of us may spend time […]


Blind Man’s Baseball

Without a moment’s warning, he threw the ball forcefully toward me. For a man in his late 70s, he had the pitching power of a 20 year old. I missed completely. The ball sailed off behind my head. I went scurrying after it. After a search of a minute or two, I brought it dutifully […]


Snow, Cats and Evolution

Hello dear Friends! It is too cold to type much today, so here is a video I have made for you.  It will take just about 5 minutes of your time, and in it I tell you about the most amazing 3 days of this year, that I spent with Barbara Marx Hubbard. During January […]


Psychological and Factual Memory

The difference between images projected onto a wall and those projected onto an open window is the difference between psychological and factual memory. The key to switching between the two lies in our willingness to experience memory in the physical body and hence to allow its liberation. Factual memory means what actually happened, as might […]
