Is it Really the End?

When you feel like you’ve come to the end, it only means you’ve come to the end of yourself.  You’ve come to the end of your limited experience and knowledge.  They can carry you no further.  Now you are in uncharted territory.

It’s terrifying.

When you get to the end of yourself, when you feel like you can’t go on any further because all is lost, you are experiencing a death so that the new you can be born to go places the old you could never go.

The new you is, of course, terrified, like a newborn moose still wobbly on its legs, and just learning to walk.  Continue reading

Why You Should Always Keep Walking

Nobody ever said life was fair……..

Nobody ever said life was just…….. 

Okay, maybe they did, but they were pretty stupid. 

And they never got anywhere in life.

That’s why we have always had revolts ….. throughout the history of mankind.

There were millions upon millions of glittering lights shattering the night, tall neon-lit buildings reaching up to the sky, black limousines, bright red Ferraris and silver Porsches gliding slowly and elegantly down the main strip.

As my buddy and I walked down the Las Vegas strip late one summer night, I asked, “What would it be like to own all of this – to own all the money, land, buildings, and cars in the world?”  “I can’t even imagine,” my friend replied. “But what if you owned all of this, and you were the only person on the planet? Then what would it all be worth?” My buddy just stared at me in stunned silence.

What is money really? What gives it its value? No other species on earth finds any value in gold, silver, diamonds, or least of all, in paper with official looking numbers printed on it. You can’t eat it. You can’t plant it. You can’t mate with it. Gold does not make the best protective armor because it’s too soft. It makes for lousy tips of spears and arrows. So where does the real value in money come from?  Continue reading

How Far Will Your Arrow Fly: Reaching Beyond the Possibilities

By Dan Castro

The next time you are tempted to say, “I’m out of options.  I’m defeated.  There is nothing left that I can do,” step outside on a clear, starry night.  Look up.  Recall that at one point in time, humans believed that all that existed was that which we could see with our own eyes.  The earth, the sun, the moon, and a sea of stars.      

As you look up at the stars, single out one star among all you can see.  Focus on it.  Zoom in on it with your mind’s eye.  Now mentally transport yourself to it and stand on it in your very own specially designed space suit.  Look deep into space.  Deeper.  Into the inky black night.   Isolate the darkest spot in the night sky.   

Now let your mind wander through that dark spot to the furthest edge of space you can imagine.  Stand there at that edge and reach out your hand.  What do you feel? Continue reading
