‘The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.’ – Socrates If all the energy and emotion people spent on politics and religion were spent actually connecting with and helping their fellow human beings, the world would be a better place. The reality is that politicians have very little to do with making the world a better place. The responsibility is ours. Take back the power by being a Hero when ever you can, and Be the change you wish to see in the world. Last night a …Read the Rest
Inspired by: http://www.whatibeproject.com/ Amongst the sea of humans riddled with insecurities, haunted by their weak sense of self and lack of strength to do what they love, are a few rare human beings who seem to absolutely glow. They are the ones we look at with such admiration, who seem to have grasped something we haven’t, who seem to have unlocked a door that remains unseen and untouchable to the rest of us. We have our moments, when we feel on top of the world, like a magnificent masterpiece, ready for every opportunity. Then it fades as we allow the …Read the Rest
These Portraits are stunning, vivid, and haunting. It amazes me how diverse human beings are, yet still so similar. Look at the physical appearance of any human in any corner of the world, and you will see a plethora of colors, styles, ensembles, face shapes, hair textures, and adornments. Look in to the eyes of any human in any corner of the world, and you will see the simplicity of life – The need for comfort, the desire to love, and a combination of defeat and strength from a journey full of pain and grief. Enjoy these stunning images.
The experience I had haunting the Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor event was amazing on so many levels. What started out as a fun way to celebrate Halloween and all things gore, ended up as a meaningful, spiritual experience that will stay with me forever. Allow me to elaborate. The Queen Mary rests on the shores of Long Beach, CA, it’s majestic presence serving as an iconic backdrop for our vibrant city. During the month of October, it becomes an eerie, sinister setting with 6 haunted mazes and 300+ monsters roaming it’s premises waiting to scare you and/or creep you out. …Read the Rest

Thought I would share this video. So logical, so eloquently stated.
I believe the most important thing a human can do in this increasingly complicated world, is to be unafraid to reveal their selves and their truth. It takes incredible courage to face the self and expose it to the masses, or even to just a single human being. So many people hide behind a wall of fears and false perceptions, and we live in a society where people are walking around disillusioned and lost in a sea of deceptiveness. We are so connected through technology, yet so disconnected from a sense of self. We seek approval and validation, and fear …Read the Rest
On the Summer Solstice Supermoon of June 23rd, 2013, I went through a Rite of passage ritual. I was suspended by my flesh in the air, and I played violin while doing it. It was truly painful, but also liberating and mind-expanding. Each step of the way was a new fear I had to overcome, and each step of the way I had to tap in to my inner strength to keep going. I chose to have my 4 hooks inserted individually, to make it more painful. Each hook represented something to me. The 3rd hook was the one that …Read the Rest
I wrote this last week when I went through a difficult yet necessary inner battle. The battle was won, and has allowed me to confront much of my fear this week. I am still on a path toward overcoming it, but now I at least acknowledge it’s hold on my life. As this battle was occuring, I wrote the poem: The Burdened Fairy. When I refer to the “summit” I am referring to The Higher Purpose Project. ___________________________ wow. Today I fought a battle within myself. It launched itself upon me without warning and dared me to confront parts of …Read the Rest
The Burdened Fairy In the recesses of existence I searched the desperate souls of the weak from the depths true nature emerged along with the answers they seek Yet the answers belonged to a question too dangerous to ask Spiraling into obsession as they explored beyond the mask Falling into a reality too frightening to confront Facing their own brutality Furious to end the hunt My wings carried their burden A load too heavy to bear Trapped in a prison with vermin fantasies are nightmares to share fragile sick souls fled Cruel unfeeling eyes again masked With them …Read the Rest
