Personal Passions

I find life so amazing and wonderful, as Cat Stevens sang,  I "Can't keep it in." My writing covers a broad range of topics, most coming from recovery programs. Recovery from what? A unloving and critical Higher Power and inner parent, as well as a wounded inner child (false self), unto a loving and supportive Higher Power and inner parent, as well as a joyful and happy inner child (Trues Self). I have a few other "programs" such as the Power of Now of Eckhart Tolle, Buddhism, non-violent (compassionate) communication, science, nature, and others. Often a thought or image grabs me, my muse is inspired, and I have to write it down and/or share it. This blog gives you access to some of these inspirations. They are somewhat eclectic, so feel free to jump around and find what inspires you. I'll start with a favorite story of how I met my inner children and young men during a guided imagery workshop called Homecoming.  I have done a few workshops myself, my favorite is Happiness. There is a second part to this that shows the side by side comparison of false self and True Self here. Other writing favorites are Invitation to Your Life  Seeds  Castles, Kings, and Queens,  Recovery Wisdom  A Strong Rope  Who We Are,  Buddha Dharma  BrokennessA Day, A Year, A LifetimeFlesh, Blood, and Bone  Soul Circle, Lather, Rinse, RepeatSacred Geometry and Fibonocci Series,  Essential DisciplinesFollowing Bliss, and for fun Super Superlatives. Other workshop favorites I have done are  Prayer and MeditationLoving Self Parent, and Eleventh Step Visioning.  My best buddy and I enjoy many passions such as doing chalk and other art, flying kites, boogie boarding, riding bikes and motorcycles, going on trips, cooking, and so on. Many of these will be showing up here over time. Nature was my first love, but bicycles and motorcycles post here took over (and take me there). Here is some of my favorite music.  This is a review of a diet I recommend and compares and contrast with others. I am filming some of my favorite rides, activities, and places I will share with you here. For now, here are my favorite hikes in the San Gabriel and Santa Monica Mountains. Also check out some videos others have done on my favorites:  A Day In Yosemite  June Lake  Palm Springs  Santa Barbara  San Diego  Ventura  Monterey  Big Bear Lake   Sequoia Park  Sullivan Canyon  Monrovia Canyon  Mammoth Lakes
