The river flows through me

Staying invisible is the antithesis of owning your spotlight -- in fact, it's not brilliant at all. The need to stand out in your market has never been stronger than it is today. We're bombarded with more information than we can cope with and we're bogged down in processing data, so …

Last night I was dreaming and I got your plan

When I walk, I walk with you

Men with insight, men in granite

To me, this makes complete sense. Without a specific purpose, it is impossible to set the right priorities and focus on what matters. Your purpose is what dictates your priorities.

You can't stop us on the road to freedom

We move along

This dilemma is an exercise in lateral thinking. It's the kind of puzzle in which the most elegant solution is revealed only when you attack it sideways. New ideas emerge when you question the assumptions upon which a problem is based (in this case: it's that you can only help …

Waiting for the sun to shine

I went over, in my head, the hundreds of yoga articles that I own and have read over the years and was left just scratching my head. I recommended Light on Life, by the late, great B. S Iyengar, but that was not enough to cross the T's and dot …

Think it's time for a change

I have to take advantage of this bargain. As I typed those sentences for Clara, my heart started to beat faster and my stomach tightened, and they weren't even my thoughts. Such an uncomfortable way to be. And all lies. When you want to cry out, tell yourself the truth …
