324-Terminal Velocity of the New Year

What change if any would you really like to see this coming year?”

While the New Year ushers in hope for many people, it creates a low-grade sense of despair for many more. A lifetime of failed resolutions in the past makes us hesitant and doubtful about lasting change for the future. In today’s podcast and post we examine this ongoing quagmire between our aspirational life and the one we seek to change.

Join me now as we see beyond the fictional existence of the life and self we may never get to be, and how we can live authentically without settling for a life of despair.

70-May I Ruin your New Year?


What do you think will happen if you add a bunch of effort and activity on top of last years blindness? Right now people are at a fever pitch to make changes to their lives. This may not be such a great thing. In this podcast and post I explain why we can’t just go from where we are to our best possible life by finding will power, or redoing our schedules, or becoming super focused. If we really want lasting change, we have to do the required soul work. And that is going to require an exile or a lonely desert experience where all the falseness is stripped off leaving the essence of our true self. That is the only part of our lives worth building and once we find it, we discover we are among very good company.
