This is an early excerpt from my upcoming book on the spiritual aspects of writing: This is a book for people who are tired of reading writing books. This is a book for people who want to know how creativity really works and how you work with it and how it works with you. This

What is Dead Can Never Die

Saturday, 01, February , 2014 by

Since my enlightenment, I can’t seem to stop writing like this. I suppose that’s fine. Perhaps, it is useful to someone. I have no idea really and I no longer care if it is. If my spiritual writings disappear into the darkness of the net and are never seen by anyone that is fine. My

It’s right there in front of you hidden in plain sight. Everything you ever wanted to know. What am I supposed to do? What is the meaning of life? Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? It’s been right there in front of you all along. It’s quite ridiculous actually but

Most of the suffering people experience is completely and totally unnecessary. If I told you, you could be free of 90% of your suffering, would you listen? Does it seem impossible? It isn’t. You see most of your pain is self-inflicted. There is real pain in this life, the pain of disease and death, but

What is your problem now? This is one of my favorite questions from The Power of Now and it’s the key to minimizing your pain and suffering in life. So how can a simple phrase change how much you hurt? Let’s take a closer look to see. How you read that first sentence makes all

I went with a friend to a local spa called Float that has sensory deprivation tanks. These tanks screen out all sound and visual stimulation and that’s when amazing starts to happen. You float on salt water inside them, drifting gently with your thoughts but as time stretches out, you begin to lose track of

It turns out that when things get really, really cold, strange and wonderful things start to happen. Take superconductors, which allow electricity to pass through them with zero resistance, opening up all kinds of incredible possibilities for powering our world with only a fraction of the current power we use. I saw an astonishing demonstration

When you’re reincarnated you don’t come back. At first that may seem paradoxical, but it’s not. Reincarnation exists, but the popular perception of it is flawed. The problem is how you think about “you?” Who are you? Are you your job, your children, your relationship, your thoughts, your ideas, your feelings, your khakis? The part

So maybe you’ve wondered what God is actually like?  Perhaps you’ve grown up with stories handed down from generation to generation about the nature of God?  I say God is not hard to find, It’s right in front of you, all the time.  You just have to look anywhere really.  Look at your hands or

Learning to Say No

Tuesday, 10, September , 2013 by

So, you say you don’t have enough time to do the things that you want to do. In fact what you’ve done is filled your life with meaningless shit. I know. I’ve done it myself. A lot. The problem is most of the things you’ve taken on just aren’t that important. They rob you of

Sometimes you don’t have to look far for inspiration.  A year ago I started to see something different on my Facebook feed.  Most of the stuff on there is pretty typical, my friends posting jokes, family posting pictures of their kids or what they had for dinner last night.  Then there were Nadia Aly’s posts.

My Almost Enlightenment

Saturday, 27, April , 2013 by

I was enlightened once, but I walked away. I rarely talk about it because the past is useless. Today, as I reconnected with my writing for the first time in a few weeks of confusing distractions, I thought about that moment again. I could feel it for a second once more. What was it like?
