How to Live Your Dreams

“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” -Roald Dahl

Guess which one of us is the music maker or dreamer? Is it possible we could be both?
Love yourself enough to live from possibility.

What you may not know is I studied music for 13 years and Jim is an incredible writer besides what you may know already.

Individually we have both intentionally chosen to live our dream. We both left the corporate world to follow our bliss. We’ve moved to another part of the country, we’ve actively pursued a life we love.
We can tell you how we did it. We can support you in making the changes you want for your best life. Come live in possibility and you’ll transform the way you see yourself.

Simplifying Your Life

JAI GANESHA!

“Dukha, the bad stuff, happens to everyone. We must stop feeding our stress phobia thinking we are trying to eradicate the bad stuff. The real obstacle to spiritual practice is thinking that to be happy we must be stress-free. Obstacles are not the problem. Life is full of setbacks, traffic jams, heart breaks and road blocks. It is our reaction and hostaging of energy that is the real block to our happiness. Learning how to stress successfully is the answer to staying zen.”

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha

#‎Mantra‬ Defined: In the mythic storytelling of ‪#‎Ganesha‬, the well loved deity to whom we chant to help us remain friendly with our obstacles.

Mantra “I Simplify”:

Take this quick simplification personal assessment. Remove your own obstacles.

Where am I? Where would I like to be? (in relation to these)
–Being busy and overwhelmed
–Self-esteem
–Worry
–Putting the needs of others first
–Anger
–Fear
–Inner Peace and fulfillment

Time is Elastic Every Day is New By Jim Beckwith

My mind stops me from doing a lot of things that might be worth doing.

How many times have you been pulled out of your tendency to stay, to not move to not go out into the world to experience something new. Every day is new. Every time you take that body out for a spin is a new experience. I once had a friend who’s motto was “good things happen when you leave the house”. You have to step out of your comfort zone a bit to experience life.

There is always some part of me that dreads getting on a plane to go somewhere. Dealing with everything that goes along with getting to and from and through the airport just to get to the point of getting on that plane.

Invariably, though, I’m glad I did. 

I worry about time. I worry about energy. But in my human experience, I don’t really feel like I’m living unless I’m doing something, and doing something different in some way.

I resist. Then sometimes it’s my most favorite thing ever! Like the flight to Bali. I was just there recently for the first time ever. Did I have resistance to the travel part? Yes. Who wants to think about 24 hours of travel? Don’t think about it. Because every moment is another moment of breath and consciousness. You can choose how you use it. And honestly, the Trans-ocean flight experience is so comfortable these days, much better than domestic flights. You can sleep a bunch, eat a bunch and watch movies! Sounds like a rain day at home on a day off. Who doesn’t want that?

P1080463In the end it was really easy. And if you have a layover you get to see some of the nicest airports in the world that don’t seem so much like airports. They are more like nice mall, and I don’t like malls either, but they usually offer some way to get away to a quiet space also. I’ve heard the one in Singapore actually has a pool!

Then you get to your destination and life is new again. In a different place and culture we must experience every moment more fully because everything is new, unexpected. We can’t take what we are seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting for granted. Time is elastic. One week can seem more like a month.

You want to experience life as a child again?

Travel.

Best Bali Temples

Bali is often referred to as the “island of a thousand temples.” In fact there are 9 directional temples in Bali to ward off evil spirits. However, some would say there are more temples than homes with well over 11,000.

When traveling through Bali your classroom is found by walking through rice fields to temples. Hiking along rivers and climbing to find the highest temples possible. Go at sunrise and sunset and the middle of the day just to see them in different light. Feel the energy of the sacred in the ordinary.

Here the meaning of being Spiritually Ordinary is an every day occurrence.

Feel it and see it for yourself and be inspired!

Rice Fields of Bali UNESCO World Heritage

There are experiences where you feel your breath grow more peaceful. Walking through Bali’s Rice Fields is one of those places. It is

In Bali Rice is Life.

Even UNESCO recognized the Rice fields as as world heritage activity. Their 1000 year history tells the story of the Balinese people. In talking to anyone you can ask them about rice and they will share fables learned as children about the lessons of Rice. It is their teacher.

You feel this impact when you stand still in a rice field and just listen. The ancients seem to speak to you even if you’ve never heard them before. The
