Announcement! 100 Day Challenge Equinox to Solstice

Who is up for joining me in a 100 Day Challenge? Equinox to Solstice. An opportunity for a significant metamorphosis across the physical and mental spectrum. 

We are all in our nature seasonal creatures as any other animal and I think all of you from time to time need a change of venue, a kick in the butt, a time for change. I know I do now and then. Autumn has so much frigging energy to it not to mention the usually supreme weather so this is a excellent time to engage an across the board practice of transformation.
 
Here is the offer.
 
I am asking you to join me in this 100 day challenge/opportunity. In a sense its a hundred day intensive or Sesshin (what Zen Buddhists call a retreat) but that doesn’t mean it will be all hardcore bootcamp. In fact, the whole purpose is to regather vitality and restore strength, grace, ease in our fitness and our life in full. 
Yes I will be engaging this too. I will hold you accountable and you will hold me accountable. 
 
So if you are interested and not afraid of commitment which will, if followed thru, enable significant positive evolution to your being contact me at highmesafitness@bresnan.net  asap. We begin this week!Image

Feelings

Do not cater to low energy or default to the voice of moods. 

Have a awesome day wither ya feel like it or not!

“I used to start the day with wondering to myself how do I feel. I stopped that. I realized that what if I don’t feel fantastic every day..will all those days of non fantastic feelings direct what my days will be like?
Can’t allow that.

So now I don’t ever ask myself anymore how do I feel..
Couldn’t care less about how I feel! Just get to work!”
– Pauline Nordin

Equinox to Solstice

Are you ready for a full on metamorphosis? I’m engaging a ‘100’ day challenge and invite all of you to join in with me. This engagement will empower a positive transformation into well being and vibrancy across the physical and mental spectrum. If you are inclined contact me at highmesafitness@bresnan.net. Details coming for all those interested.  A journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step after all. 

The Beautiful Truth (and more…)

For each of us, eventually whether we’re ready or not, someday it will come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else. Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived at the end. It won’t matter if you’re beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days will be measured? What will matter is not what you’ve bought but what you’ve built, not what you got but what you gave. What will matter is not your success but your significance. What will matter is not what you’ve learned but what you’ve taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, and sacrifice that enriched and empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not your competence but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone. What will matter is not your memories but the memories that live with those who love you.

A life lived that matters is not of circumstance but of choice.

~ Michael Josephson

I first discovered this poem when watching the The Beautiful Truth. I felt it the highlight of a film that philosophically strongly resonates with me if not entirely in the application of treatment for dis-ease (though mostly). With that in mind I invite you to stay tuned for a announcement and opportunity in the next couple days which has the potential to beautifully metamorphosize your life over the next three months.

Emergence

We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe. This fact is rarely, if ever, experienced by most individuals. Even those who know it to be true in theory do not sense or feel it, but continue to be aware of themselves as isolated “egos” inside bags of skin. -Alan Watts

In here

“The planet is fine. The people are fucked. Because everyone is trying to save the planet. The planet doesn’t need that. The planet will take care of itself. People are selfish. And that’s what they’re doing is trying to save the planet for themselves to have a nicer place to live. They don’t care about the planet in theory. They just care about having a comfortable place. And these people with the fires and the floods and everything, they overbuild, they put nature to the test and they get what’s coming to them. That’s what I say….There are places that are going to go away. The map is going to change and that’s because — people think nature is outside of them. They don’t take into them the idea that we are part of it. They say, “oh, we’re going for a nature walk. We’re going to the country because we like nature.” Nature is in here. And if you’re in tune with it, like the Indians, the Hopis, especially, the balance of life, the balance, the harmony of nature, if you understand that, you don’t overbuild. You don’t do all this moron stuff.” – George Carlin

Dead on. As a friend recently remarked; comedians are allowed to say the truth. This is my take too. My concern is of course how much, how many other species and ecosystems we are going to take down with us?   Each day, (and this is amplified when I make trips to bigger cities and witness the scourge of strip-malls, homogenized suburbs, pretentious warehouse churches,  and mega horrors such as an Ikea store) I am impressed with how headlong over the cliff humanity is going and secondly, how clear the right way to live is. Like most of us who have tasted some awareness,  I find myself caught in two worlds. On one hand I feel the current of our inane society and on the other a more authentic way to live. What the Navajo/Dine might call Hozjo. If it were not for some of my very early mornings, my trail runs, the very wolf haunting howl of one of my huskies, the pine cones I keep on my shelves, the tenderness of my wife, I fear I would forget who I am, who we all once were down deep, and the freedom to be that still is in a life of authenticity and balance.
