A blog that inspires and informs

Welcome to an area I fondly call "Observing the world from upside down." What does it mean? We have the power within to CHANGE our world just by shifting the way we view things. Are you attempting to develop healthier lifestyle habits? Are you beginning a new endeavor? Try approaching that which challenges or perplexes you with a new perspective and see what happens next. Need assistance with changing your viewpoint or attitude? Reach out and let’s talk.

Request an appointment for a free 20-minute phone call on any subject.

I look forward to hearing from you!

RELAX

 

As we head into springtime, I ponder.....

How is it that we were born into a culture that promotes constant DOING but frowns upon just BEING?

 

“Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness.”― George MacDonald

It's about TIME.....
Posted by Ken on Wed Jan 01 2014

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

SANT(osh)A CLAUS is coming to town...

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”  ― Lao Tzu

 

What IF this year you spent little to no money during the holiday season?  How would that change things in our world?  What do the people in your life really need right now? Better yet, what if you announced to all the people in your life that you will not accept material items during the holiday season, thereby modeling for those around you that you are practicing contentment or SANTOSHA, which is the second of the Niyamas in Yoga.

aMUGdala? No, AMYGDALA! And, how I overcame a very distressing mugging incident….

“Without difficulties, life would be like a stream without rocks and curves – about as interesting as concrete. Without problems, there can be no personal growth, no group achievement, no progress of humanity. But what mattes about problems is what one does with them.”

“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on.

Maybe what matters is that we embark.” ― Barbara Hall

It's My Party and I'll OM if I Want To
Pay It Forward

Namaste, my fellow Yogis and Yoginis! Greetings to you during the Downward DOG days of summer!
I am excited to share that I turn 44 later this month.
I must say that I am more into counting blessings in my life than candles on a cake!

Who is the TRUE HERO this summer?
Posted by Ken on Mon Jun 24 2013

It’s a Bird!  It’s a Plane! It's......

Man of Steel

 

Nope.  It’s a human being!

 

While theater screens abound with heroic stories about ‘men of steel’ this summer, I would actually like to reflect on last year’s big hit:  The Hunger Games.

I have been DYING to share this with you....

“Don’t take life so seriously, no one gets out alive.”  -Elbert Hubbard

 

Someday, I will take my last breath and “I” will be no longer.  This thought, well, to be quite honest, it sometimes almost scares me....death.  But the more I practice yoga and incorporate other shamanic meditation techniques, the more my mortality intrigues me and gives my life a whole new level of richness.

The REAL Zombie Apocalypse and how you can survive...
Posted by Ken on Sat Apr 20 2013
 zombies are real
 
Hordes of Zombies….Hording Zombies… the REAL Zombie apocalypse is NOW!   And here’s the spoiler alert: YOU already have the cure….

Like all trends, our culture’s macabre fascination with zombies comes and goes. In my lifetime alone, there have been several waves of zombie movies that have captured the imagination of many and offended the morals of many others.  While there are some pre-George Romero zombie films, Mr. Romero deserves the credit for jumpstarting  this genre with his low-budget, brain-feasting gore fests filmed in rural Pennsylvania (my home state!) back in 1968 (a year before I was born) and the world has never been the same.
