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.

Have you arrived?

We spend most of our lifetime wishing upon a shooting star and hoping for a better future.

We miss out on the celebration of our very existence, now and the lives we have touched. 

What is your treasure? Will you even be able to recognize it?

How will you know you've arrived? What form will it take?

Have you asked yourself what your heart truly desires? Does fulfillment and happiness rank up with the others?

What about becoming aware of the deeper reason for your existence?

I've often said the greatest gift we can present to another human being is to understand why we truly exist.

Perhaps "X" marks the spot on the very place you stand. You are the treasure.

Give into Love

What if you decided to release the energy that has not been serving your higher self:
- the fears,
- the past,
- the resentment,
- the failed attempts and the ones that let you down. 

What if you just gave into love. 

What if all of it was put into your path to help you remember who you were truly born to be.

What if the very thing you've been resisting was actually intended as the greatest catalyst for your life. 

What if God only sent you Angels from all walks of life helping you embrace your brighter light.  

What if you decided to channel all of your energy towards filling yourself and the soul of the universe with unconditional love.

What if you embraced the higher version of yourself.

Give into love and experience the World being Helped by You.

What is REAL?

I love this question. I've contemplated it ever since I was 6-years old. What is REAL and what is illusion?

The intention of this morning's #Why Time is to help you take stock of your life. See your life as a blank white canvass. Now think about your life and everything in it. The relationships. Where you live. Your possessions. The cars you drive. The money you earn. Your job...all of it.

Every conscious and unconscious thought throughout your journey influenced your choices. Whether you were aware of it or not, you filled the canvass of your life.

The question is: Is it the canvass your heart truly desired to create? Do you often feel as if you are living someone else's life?  Do you wonder how it filled up so quickly?

What if the REAL canvass, the true work of art is still inside of you waiting for your belief and brushstrokes. 

It's easy to believe that all this "physical stuff" around us is real. Since you can't take it with you, it does not define you, it never did.  Most of our lives are just the result of unconscious choices. We've unconsciously created a world that doesn't portray the "true picture" of the life we desire to live.

That creation is still buried deep within you, sealed within the container of your mind. 

Like most people, you might think you don't have a choice. You think too much time has passed you by. Then again what is time, really? 

You may stop yourself for not knowing the "how" your desired life will transpire. Nothing could be further from the truth. Today, decide what you want most, take powerful action and create it. 

Pick up the brush, crack open the unused can, dip in and start creating the unREALized masterpiece that is your life.

How much time do you really have?

It's easy to go through life thinking you have all the time in the world.  But have you ever stopped to really contemplate the deeper meaning surrounding time? 

What is time really?  

Is it a construct of our own minds? An illusion that we have manufactured? Does it control our very nature? Is it an energy that holds us back from truly breaking through the ceiling of our own complexity. 

As I reflect on the time I have spent on this earth I believe we are meant to define our 'true selves' by uncovering the hidden mysteries of our limitless universe.  

Once we decide the contribution we wish to make to the soul of the universe, time no longer becomes an obstacle but rather a vehicle for manifesting our greatest desires.   

What if we learned to let go of the past and all the energy that surrounds it.   

What if we released the need to force the future that hasn't even arrived.   

What I know for certain is that you are here NOW in this glorious time to decide who you wish to be and live out the remaining days of your life your way.
