My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Life is not a problem to be solved, but an adventure to be lived!

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That I will be tempted to believe the limited appearances of the world and fail to reveal the true potential of my/our being. That I will fall asleep. That I will waste too many moments of this precious incarnation fighting, fixing, or fearing, instead of loving, living, and risking.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. In terms of speaking, probably 'consciousness, vision, purpose, destiny, excellence, genius, and power.' I can hardly have a conversation with someone without touching upon those. Phrases might be 'take it to the next level,' 'live life to the fullest,' 'follow your dreams/destiny,' 'awaken to the truth.'

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Living in a constant state of conscious oneness with Source -- and letting It express fully! 

And in my less enlightened moments (or maybe more enlightened) it would be hanging with friends in a cool cafe overlooking the ocean on a gorgeous sunny day, eating amazing food prepared by a true culinary artist, indulging in a margarita, having deep dialog and laughing our butts off at all the crazy stuff we do!

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I don't really identify with anyone, in terms of feeling like they're just like me. But I do identify in terms of being drawn to, or aspiring to emulate. My top ten list would be: Jesus, Buddha, Einstein, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah, Obama, Shakespeare, Spielberg.
