Hustle Culture & Inner Peace

Happy Sunday, my friend!


It's October 18, a heavenly, sunny- albeit a bit chilly day, here in Bucks County, PA.

And I've been a bit absent in the past couple of months, but here I am, to share some fresh thoughts, some past and upcoming events, and some news that you may be interested in- if you love art and creativity.

Stick to the end!

And...


Breathe & Check in with yourself


The world is still an unsure place right now, for most of us... and if you're like me, grinding daily to build a better future for yourself and your family, to find clarity, your life's purpose, and to be a positive influence, growing and unfolding your life's journey every day...

It can feel intense at times.

I feel you.

The truth is that...we're always chasing the treasure, the goodie, the sweet at the end.

It's HUSTLE culture, baby!

BUT

Just remember...in our successful, prolific, growing enterprise,

that the real treasure is

just a breath away.

It is our true and loyal companion, never strays away.

Breathing deep, we hungrily drink in the cool, crisp, perhaps fragrant, air.

Breathing out, we arrive.





"The secret lies in being in a state of constant departure,

while always arriving"

Waking Life


We depart...a lot.

And we need to.

We need to dream, to grow, to flow with life, to constantly meet our edge

...it's what sharpens it.

And yes...that comes about through challenges and the darkest moments of our lives can feel unbearable.

The grind roughens us up a bit. And to be honest, we need it.

And moreover, we deserve it.

Am I alone in seeing that our culture is that of increasingly soft people?

Whiners, victims, children... Maturity starts when the drama ends.

Responsibility... is knowing that things are the way they are because of all the events that lead there.

If you don't weed the garden, you'll have weeds in it.

What kind of ideas do you actively grow in the garden of your mind?

Do they make you happy, sad, are they constructive, or ruminative?

Do they serve you?

Or

Can you change things around?



It's all in the mind


Because it's a choice, you know.

How you want to live.

And it's all in the mind.

Our mind is the control tower of our life.

But now, more than ever, our control towers are no longer governing our lives, but we've poisoned our minds with conventional media, social media, other people's misled opinions, the very result of their own dysfunctional towers, and it's too much...

There's too much information, we are bombarded with information, and it has become an addiction.

A mental addiction.

We need to take back control of our control tower,

Slow down the input,

Take a break,

Quiet down,

Recalibrate.

CONNECT with our true treasure.

Notice how I haven't said "find" it?

It's not a game of hide-and-seek, don't be mislead by the clumsy human way of communicating ideas.

It's always here, at hand, one breath away.


Finding


Now, I've abjured Christianity a while ago, but I still remember, and keep close to my heart, Jesus' words from Thomas' Gospel ( from the Dead Sea scrolls- which was not included in the King James Bible) :

"Lift a stone, and you will find me.

Split some wood, and I am there"

"The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you"


What you are seeking is your own self, the Universal Divine spark, the Force,

the Good Orderly Direction of Flow.

And it's only a breath away.

Every day, take a few minutes to connect to the Real You.
