Why Time

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Do you really want to know?

Do you really want to know?

Why are you truly here, now, in this place at this point in time? 
It’s a great question to kick off this journey. Then again, it’s the only question in the end that truly matters.  

Why not invest the time now to truly uncover the answer? 

What I know for certain is seconds before our death, a higher source reveals the answer in all its glory.  

What follows all depends on how you chose to step into and live this question in the present.  

So, like every human being on the planet, you have a choice to uncover the answer to the universe’s most profound question.  “Why am I here?” 

It’s the foundation of all questions and the access to every answer that follows.   

How much longer will you dodge this bullet? Will you wait until the end or will you choose to really start living through it? 

We’re the only species that’s been given the greatest gift. The privilege and the ability to ask and live this one question. “Why am I here?”

You’ll soon realize that a ‘noisy’ world filled with theme parks, surgery treats and shopping malls cannot give you the answer.   

Think about all the time you have walked this earth. Where did all of your life force flow? How much energy was allocated towards climbing the mountain of success? 

If you’re fortunate you might be granted another gift of experiencing 70 summers in your lifetime. 

Imagine savouring every delicious moment with a new found awareness of your life’s true purpose.  

So, do you really want to answer the question “Why am I here?” It will require a new form of conscious thinking.  

Like anything worth pursuing it may create new levels of discomfort. But here’s the thing, if you keep doing the same thing you’ve been doing you’ll continue living with the same results.  

You don’t exist to simply pay the bills. You don’t need “more stuff” to occupy the limitless space of your mind. You are a being of light and possibility. Say that five times fast! 

Let the world’s fill your heart and soul. Know that you’re not alone on this wondrous journey.  

So, park the SUV in someone else’s 3-car garage. Begin removing all the layers of complexity you’ve unconsciously built. Wrap yourself with the greatest “unwrapped” gift of all time. 


Begin living with a deeper sense of purpose. Bask in the sunlight of knowing “Why you are here.”

Don’t take yourself so damn seriously!

Seriously, do those closest to you really get the deeper essence of who you truly are?
Do they thrust you high up into the clouds or do they weigh you down for fear of being left behind?
Do you feel alone on your wondrous journey through life? Is your new-found purpose burning a whole in your chest?

Here’s the thing. You’re the only one who really needs to get you. You’re a first rate version of yourself. No one else needs to lift you up. You are the maestro. You conduct the symphony.

So why do we all crave acceptance and external validation? Answer. We are human beings. We all strive for deeper connection. We want to be seen and know that our life mattered to others.
I’ve often claimed that “I Don’t Know What the HELL I’m Doing!” It’s why I wrote a book on the subject. But I do know WHY. It’s my clarity of purpose that feeds my soul and fuels the way. It’s my beacon. My distant light guiding me in.

When you [focus] with laser precious on what you desire to experience in your brief lifetime, you’ll create a shield of pure light that surrounds and magnifies your deeper WHY.

No one else needs to think your way. Your dream will soon be realized and the World will be Helped by You. That’s my definition of the deeper WHY that will shift the world’s energy.
So, in the words of the late and great Dr. Wayne Dyer, “Don’t take yourself so damn seriously!”
Create your life the way it was intended to be. #whyguy

Sounds of a Sunrise

What is the sound that a sunrise creates? 

For the past 48 years of my life I lived completely unaware of this miraculous experience . For the past several months I've conditioned a new habit of listening with the intent to understand the sounds of a sunrise. 

It starts off with a cool mist slowly hovering along the surface of the lake. You can hear the ripples of the distant waves. You can hear the crickets as they conduct their final crescendo. As the earth rotates it makes way for the first glimpse of the great ball of fire far in the distance...our sun. 

The earth is greeted by a faint fluttering from the wings of angels. I witness the sounds of geese flowing in unison along the surface of the water as if to be taking their seats in the audience. 

 The majestic ball of fire bursts through the horizon with a peaceful thrust. Children's laughter chime in the wind. The water greets the rocky shore with a thundering kiss. 

The leaves on the trees that shelter me smile as they sway in the wind. Suddenly it's as if all the sounds of the universe harmoniously flow as one heart beat. 
One song. 
One life.
One light that fills my heart.

The Fire


I wanted to share with you all my speech to kick off the Upper Canada College (UCC) The Terry Fox Foundation run today. Thank you Jen Shin
I call it: THE FIRE
 
What does Terry Fox represent for you?
Why do you run?
You know what his life force means to me? That we are all connected and we are all one! We are here to elevate the human race and make it thrive.
For me, Terry Fox represents [THE FIRE] that burns inside of us all.
He represents PASSION: The things that bring us joy. PURPOSE: How will you serve the world?
Together, they create the outcomes we are all seeking.
Together they create the [THE FIRE] that stirs our dragons.

Terry Fox created a legacy that still burns brightly in our hearts.
What is your fire?
What will you run for?
What will the world say about you years from now?
Will your passion scorch the skies?
Will your purpose light the way?

If my 17 year-old daughter Sophie were standing beside me she would say don't ever stop dreaming. Don't settle and never stop living your passion.

Last year at this time she wanted to run but she was laying in a hospital bed fighting for her life and with her FIRE fighting stage 3 cancer. She chose to run and kick cancer in the ass!

You run for her. For all of us. For a world free of DIS-EASE. Inside of you is a fire. We need to hear you roar.
So stand up and stretch your arms out high and bellow out with passion and purpose: I HAVE A FIRE...I HAVE A FIRE...I HAVE A FIRE.

Keep it Simple



 
"You don't need to know what the hell you are doing!
You just need to simplify."
~ Gerry Visca

When did we allow complexity to dictate our lives? When did it become acceptable to live with a sense of overwhelm? Were our ancestors not raised with the mentality that less is truly more? I think perhaps our modern world may have lost its way in the pursuit of more.  
Simplicity is about developing the capacity to savour less.  Ask yourself these questions as you strive to simplify all areas of your life:
1. Where and how do you want to live?  
2. What is your perfect day?  
3. Where and how do you want to spend your time?
4. What are the things that give you the greatest joy?

As I write these words, the Tuscan Bells of Montespertoli chime 9 times signaling 9:00am.  I just finished a long contemplative walk through the olive groves. I converse with the trees as they seem to rise and greet the morning sun. I witness a lovely lady smiling at me from her balcony as she joyfully tends to her herbs.  She greets me with a simple 'Bonjourno' (good morning). 

My life partner Angela and I decided to return to the hills of Tuscany for a consecutive year. I feel deeply rooted in these lands much like the olive trees as if I am one with the soil. My mother grew up in Italy, a few hours away from this simple paradise.

This return visit marked a memorable milestone. We celebrated the launch of my new novel "Remembering Why" A Wondrous Journey to Why We Exist. This is the first transformational novel in my 16-book repertoire.  
The words were inspired by my experiences in Tuscany last year and the enormity of the events that followed. The title "Remembering Why" appears even more fitting as I simply soak in all the senses that this heavenly place offered me. It reminded me just how brilliant and brief life truly is.  

"We need to continually stretch ourselves and become fascinated with the world around us." ~ Gerry Visca

My 48 year journey on this earth has been a wondrous journey learning how to develop the capacity to savour less. Everyone of us has been presented with a treasure, the gift of limited time. We have a choice to begin to remove the enormous 'complexity' we have unconsciously piled onto our lives. There is a light at the top of the heap. We can decide to allocate our life force to ONLY the things that light us up with joy.  

Simplifying your life begins with choosing to consciously throw out all the garbage in your mind through a daily practice of clearing the mind.  The deeper levels of peace and fulfillment that all of man kind is ultimately seeking will emerge when we simplify the contents of our mind. 

You are the only one that can choose to do the inner work, step into living these questions and become aware of your higher self but you have to start deconstructing (breaking down and disassembling what no longer serves you) in all aspects of your life. 
It's funny, we are never taught this at a young age or any age for that matter. We are immersed in a society that strives to consume and pursue more. We have forgotten our true purpose which is to elevate the human race and that my friends will come about when we choose to BE (as in we are human beings) as opposed to unconsciously living as human DOings. 

We have somehow allowed life to pile more crap upon us. Instead of living and creating life on our terms we choose to bog ourselves down with endless TO-DO lists that bog down our minds and keep us from focusing on only the things that truly matter.     

Life is meant to be lived through greater levels of passion and purpose. Together, these two energies truly create the meaningful outcomes we are all seeking: a path to inner peace, harmony and fulfillment.   
I hope this #whytime inspires you to live the rest of your days with a greater sense of urgency for the one life you've been given.

Why Write?


We don't just read and write books because it's cool.
We read and write books because we are here to elevate the human race...and the human race needs to ignite it's passion and purpose so we can all create meaningful outcomes in our lives.

Everyone on this planet is seeking a connection to the deeper reason for their existence.

Why Write inspiring works of art?
Because when we connect to the heart we life the human spirit.

Inspiration is about beauty, love and passion. When composed as a work of art, inspired writing has the power to illuminate our heart and connect us to the soul of the universe.

Why do I write? Because I can and I have a desire to inspire 1 Million WHYs in our world.

Why do you write? Because the world needs to remember your verse ans know that you mattered.

Are you ready to write?

What will bring meaning to your life?

Take a moment and take stock of your life. Ask yourself, "What has brought me meaning thus far?"
Is it the house?
The new car?
The remodeled family room?
How about the past several visits to the shopping mall?

I'm sure it wouldn't take long to "rationalize" how much joy your external world has presented you. 

If you dig a little deeper you would soon realize it's all just "rational lies."

What if you took a deeper dive and had a conversation with your heart? What is the love that you are truly seeking?

Now as you swim in a new ocean of belief ask yourself, "What will bring meaning to my life?" The path to true happiness, inner peace and fulfillment will never emerge from the external world.

Deeper levels of meaning dwells within the light of your "inner being." It ascends from the stillness of your heart and breaks through the surface with arms thrust out wide. 

Breathe in the power of this moment that is your life. Soak in the wondrous power of your beating heart. 

Embrace new levels of gratitude for your soul's desire to awaken its spirit. Feel your inner light filling you up with new levels of love for yourself and everything around you.  

You've been gifted life and the exquisite opportunity to savour all that it has to offer.

What if you Remembered?

I can imagine the feeling when all of us remember our true calling in this world. 

There is something far greater that surrounds us. We only need to believe that we are all meant for more.

A lifetime ago, our deeper purpose was imprinted in our cells. This "light" has never left our "being."

You felt this "gift" wrapping you around the age of 6. Somewhere along your journey, you forgot your way. Your "true gifts" remain unwrapped and dwell in the shadows of unrealized possibility. 

Like most people, you've allowed the delusion of society to convince you of what is "real". You've lost sight of what truly matters. Your inner light will ignite your burning desire (your passion).

When you present your gift to others you are living your true purpose and you create the meaningful outcomes that your soul is seeking.

We are here for a finite moment in time. Our deeper reason for being is to help one another "Remember Why" we exist. 

This deeper calling to your light does not exist in the realm of doing and achieving more. It lives through a deeper love for yourself, for every living thing and everyone around you.

I can imagine the feeling of everyone returning to their light.
I cam imagine the feeling of Remembering Why.

X MARKS THE SPOT

What is the illusive treasure you are seeking? How will you know when you've arrived?


For the past several years you've sharpened your pick and polished your axe.  


Today, you may find yourself at a crossroad. You're asking yourself the BIGGER questions yet the answers are not coming to the surface. That's because they are buried deep within a place you've forgotten.  


Your long lost treasure is not found on a map. It's exists on the very spot you now stand.  It's your light and all knowing inner being. 


You are the treasure. You have the gift but you need to rip off the ribbons that have held you down from bursting into your greatness.  


The only map you need is the one that will re-connect your heart with the soul of the universe.   

It's this "unison of hearts" that will reveal the missing piece.  


The treasure you seek is your "way of being." This shiny jewel can't be found in the "doing."


We're all connected and you'll soon discover that we're all seeking the same thing, the answer to the only question that matters: "WHY am I here?"

The BIG Lie

We live in a world where we are completely run by a need for external validation.  I refer to this energy as our "outer being or demon."  It thrives on the need to be recognized, validated and edified.

Somewhere between the age of 6 and 11 we allow society to thrust its grip on us and tell us what is real.

It's all bullshit!  It's a big lie.  We're not helping anyone by continually falling deeper into this realm of "disillusionment."

The only thing that matters is helping one another return to the "light" of our true being. This is how we will eliminate fear and silence the demon within that permeates our fragile world.

We're not here to win more titles, earn millions and consume more natural resources. This accumulation of more continues to ravage our world and our spirit.

We are here to thrive as a human species and we're being tested now more than ever as to our level of contribution.  The question is, will we rise about our current way of being and help one another answer the only question that truly matters: "Why am I here?"

The big lie is that you allow others to tell you that you're not good enough or not doing enough. You allow yourself to listen to the "noise of the crowd" that you don't have a purpose and you can't live your true passion.

You allow yourself to be influenced by the masses instead of listening to your heart. You wake up doing the same thing over and over hoping and wishing for things to change.  This energy is not serving your higher self.

It's time to be true to yourself and honour your light.

The real truth is that inside of you lives and breathes a "fiery dragon", a spirit that is your burning passion. It has existed since the first breath you took. It desires to scorch the skies and play full out.

You are unique and one-of-a-kind. When you unleash your true light, the world will be a better place.

My recent autobiography titled "Influence" features 11 unique journey's of women inspiring change. It is an energy intended to inspire 11,000 new "Influencers" in the world.  It is not intended to feed ego's. It's sole purpose is to ignite your light so you to can become a person of influence.

The deeper why that drives my publications are that we all have a light that shines deep within. I believe in the light of "everyday people doing extraordinary things."

The truth that influences my inspiration is my need and desire to forge a new ROI for humanity. One where we collectively choose to Reach Out and Inspire others.

Allow your truth to set your spirit free so you can soar into the heavens and cast your true light upon us all.
