Choices and Decisions

These are not the same. They’re similar, but not the same.

We have choices.

We make decisions.

The better decisions we make, the more choices we will probably have.

And the more we study beauty and joy the more we’re finding they’re the offspring of variety.

Join us in Tucson this April

Imagine a world where you are fully present, attentive to all that surrounds you, where love and joy fill your days and fear is left behind.  Imagine your life with depth and meaning, humor and lightheartedness, as well as intention and connection. For a couple of days this spring, we’re going to dive into these possibilities.

This year’s Oomph Retreat will focus on ‘Being Alive’, what it means and what it does not, mean, what it looks and feels like, and what might that road be like for you.  We will explore themes of vulnerability, presence, intuition, heart vs. mind, living from the inside out, the enneagram, true self/false self, how to design your life guidelines, and much more.

See for more information.

The 3 Modalities of Doing (via Eckhart Tolle)

Today, become aware of the posture you enter each of your moments with.

Eckhart Tolle teaches that if you cannot enter into your moments with at least one the “3 modalities” of doing, you will create for yourself suffering.

The 3 modalities are:

  1. Acceptance
  2. Enjoyment
  3. Enthusiasm

Check these out.

See for yourself.

Delight will be your guide.

The Magic Number…

…is enough.

Any other number that we believe is the bridge between us and our joy, peace, and contentment is simply not true.

You can’t weigh enough.

You can’t count enough.

You can’t measure enough.

You can only hold it…be with it…and enjoy it. It’s simply experiential and it’s the most freeing number your soul will ever know.

PS // What if we taught our children how to count to enough? My sense is that by learning how to behold the ‘enough’ in their little lives they would also internally find a way to see this big beautiful truth in the mirror as well.
