You weren’t born with a limiting story.
You were born free.
You are NOT your story.
It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
I love this advice from one of the smartest minds on the planet.
You can get out of a black hole, Hawking wrote, but you must look up. Be curious and don’t give up.
Hawking was speaking about the black hole of depression, but this advice can be applied to anyone who feels hopeless and scared, whether that be about their own lives or about the state of our country.
Anyone who has had the audacity to question mainstream science soon runs afoul, particularly in the blogosphere, of hard-line skeptics. Whether they are simply insistent or outright aggressive, the skeptical viewpoint has long been founded on a simple principle. Reality is what lies before us, in the three-dimensional world "out there" that's verified by the five senses. If you can see it, feel it, touch, taste, and smell it, the thing in question is real (making provisions for scientific instruments like telescopes and microscopes that extend the naked eye).

When your dreams don’t manifest the way you want them to, trust that there is a reason.
We often have these ideas of what our dreams should look like, how they should happen, and when they should manifest.
All eyes are on “La La Land” heading into Oscars season. The film received a stunning 14 nominations, tying it for the all-time record.
“La La Land” is a beautiful, creative and magical movie with an ending that no one I know can agree on. As my friend John said to me the other day, “The end left me confused, but not in a bad way.”
Home is a charged word for everyone, a source of emotion that's intimately associated with feeling safe and loved, of belonging. When asked "Where is home?" people reply with a country or city, perhaps a specific street address. Almost no one says "My home is the universe." But for scientists trying to explain cosmic issues, the fact that the universe is the ultimate home where human life arose poses some huge mysteries. In our book You Are the Universe , we explore these mysteries, but that's really secondary to something more important. We aim to show that the universe exists to be the home of human beings.
I watched President Trump’s inauguration from an airport TV in Guatemala. I’d just finished leading 22 people on a pilgrimage to live, study and participate in ceremonies with Mayan shamans at sacred sites. For me, it was the first leg of a two-month working-journey. I am still in Latin America, teaching and speaking at a variety of venues. In the days since that inauguration, I, like so many, have felt the horror of the emerging Trump policies.
Today is the anniversary or one of my dear friends deaths. It is also the Celebration of his Angelversary in Spirit. I am sharing with you the story I wrote about my experience walking this journey through suicide for my book No Mistakes. I hope it reminds you to always ask for help…. and to stay present.. in the good and hard stuff in life It is all worth being present for. All my love- SDJ
Suffering is caused by the story you make up about your reality. What stories are you making up about yourself and your life? What impact are they having?
Life isn’t suffering. Life simply IS. It’s not what happens to you, but how you interpret what happens to you and what you make it mean that causes you suffering.
I’ve done a lot of thinking this week.
I’ve thought a lot about what President Trump said and what he could have said. I’ve thought a lot about symbolism, about manners, about civility, about tone, about politics, and about democracy.
Most of all, I’ve thought about my country. I’ve thought about where we are and how we got here. I’ve thought a lot about where we are going.
