Chicago in the winter.

Sometimes, all a man really needs is to get away from the work that drives him. From all of the work that feeds his soul, but drives him. It drives and drives. And continues to drive. Drives him mad at times. It drives him to exhaustion sometimes. But it drives him towards the light. Taking a break from that to settle into a relaxing state of being, perhaps with a woman by his side, can be one of the most beneficial states I’ve come to know in my quarter century of living.

Take your days away from the screen, away from the desk, or from the work environment, and rest upon something real, or something in the present moment. Embrace that living, that existence, that breathes like the breath of those you keep close to you. That existence that breathes the fire back into your body, mind and soul.


I’m sitting here in a Chicago cafe while the flakes fall outside this window seat. I don’t know much about this great city, but am experiencing its raw nature a day at a time until returning home to ohio, then back to my quarters in Denver.

My conclusive thoughts for you:

P.S. I am starting up a new series similar to my 30 day challenge that we did over a month ago. That was such an awesome trip in life to do that challenge so I have been getting this one in the works and am kicking it off with this message. Stay tuned for more words as this project takes form and becomes what it is.


How does one become grounded? Centered? Aware?

I am currently undergoing a lot of self-work and have been in such a state of flux, between feeling so grounded that I am completely aware of my present state, my path and what I am doing. But there are times where I completely lose that center, my center, and become caught up in the current’s rush that is reality. Such a heavy force. Like a mad river that does not stop to let you catch your breath and you are carried along with society’s plans as if to maintain the constant state of what is. But that is not what I want.

I have been in contact with some amazing people in the recent times who are both inspiring and a huge help to me on my path, while I have set down to help them as well. I am speaking in terms of the projects we have set out to accomplish and complete, in addition to on a spiritual level. The changes and realizations continue, but I am seeking help from others out there in terms of maintaining that state. If this post connects with you in any way or you are in a similar state and/or have dealt with and over come such an idea, I look forward to connecting more.

Be well.
