  • The more I pay attention to the inner journey, the journey of the spirit, and the timeless qualities of that journey, the less I fear or fight the aging process. As I get older, I find that I have fewer mental hangups, less of a tendency to buy into bullshit fear trips, and more of a tendency to trust the inner guide that tells me “despite appearances, all is well. Do what you can to make it better, and leave the rest for others to fret and wring their hands and hearts about. Life’s too short to sweat the bullshit, dude.”
  • It’s funny, but life is simultaneously taking on more of an urgency – I recognize more and more how it’s all right here, right now – there is no other relevant time, in terms of living, than this very moment; while, I am also in no hurry, no rush, no pressure to be something I’m not, or to do something that doesn’t feel right, just because someone else has said it is what I should be doing. If it fits my inner journey, I welcome it. Otherwise, I don’t take it all too seriously.
  • I do what I do because this is what I have chosen to do. Nobody forced me into my life situation. I’m here by the choices I have made, by how I have responded to what life has put in my path. It’s simply where I am. This is where I get to live in this moment, where I get to work at wherever it is that I’m going, but I’m not as concerned for the destiny as I am for making the most of this moment. If I rock it out in this moment, destiny will take care of itself.
  • For me, it’s just right. I couldn’t ask for any more nor less than what I find in front of me, and surrounding me, in this moment. Let’s rock!
