The Content Blob that is You

November 16, 2017

I recently heard an actor being interviewed about her process for getting into character.  She explained that she creates a history—in her own mind—for the character she needs to become. The movie script points toward some history, of course. But this particular actress goes beyond that. She vividly imagines her character at various moments in […]

Seeing Freedom…Even Deeper

October 19, 2017

So many of you are feeling into the Truth of what I share. You’re seeing that you are well and thriving by default. That you’re feeling your moment-to-moment thinking brought to life within you; that the world out there doesn’t create your experience. It makes sense that your mind is like a snow globe, settling […]

You’re not the Boss of Me: How a very Basic Understanding of Your Brain (and What Powers Your Brain) Can Free you from Pretty Much Anything

October 12, 2017

The publisher of The Little Book of Big Change asked me to write something for their blog about the lower brain. I was a little hesitant.

Your But Is Too Big

September 28, 2017

When I was seven or eight years old, I got to pick out two flavored lip balms from my mom’s Avon catalog. The flavors I chose were Banana Split and Strawberry Shortcake.  The lip balms came in tubes just like real, grown up lipstick. This was the highlight of my summer, no kidding. The fancy-looking […]

Sadness, Humility and the Truth about What’s Under the Bed

September 21, 2017

I’m not typically sad.   Of course I experience up and down moods like anyone, but depressed isn’t a feeling that visits very often. Except for this past summer. Off and on, here or there. There was a depth to my moods that I can’t remember experiencing in the past. A flat feeling that I recognized […]

The Implications of Being Born Habit-Free

September 14, 2017

Back in June I was a guest on Human Being TV, which is a great little YouTube channel devoted to sharing the Three Principles understanding. We talked about the fact that we are born habit-free, with a design based on our shared, innate health. We talked about what habits really are and how change really […]

Why Tools and Practices Are Nice, but They Aren’t ‘It’.

September 7, 2017

I spent years feeling less-than because I wasn’t a regular meditator.  (Wait…you too?) It just seemed so appealing. So magical. There you are in stillness, tapped into something far deeper than your typical, mind-manufactured experience. Feeling at one with all of life, in complete peace and tranquility. Insights and creative ideas flowing through you. Wayne […]

August 31, 2017

Three of Gwen’s immediate family members died, and two of her remaining family members cut off their relationship with her, within a 10-month time span.  A month after the third death she asked the not-at-all-rhetorical question, “How do I get over this?” “What do I do? How do I heal myself from the trauma of […]

You Don’t Have an Inner Pig. Your Habit is Actually Your Best Friend.

August 24, 2017

There are several books out there who talk about your habit—and the thoughts and feelings that lead you to engage in your habit—as the enemy. They talk about a monster, saboteur, beast, or pig that (metaphorically, of course) lives within you and leads you to into your habit over and over. There is so much […]
