I’ve spent the first decade of my career exploring my passions - music, yoga, writing, travel, philanthropy, teaching - with the intention of one day creating a specialized business at the intersection of those spaces.

And as I faithfully explored every interest, I noticed that embedded in all of my activities was the same desire: a deep longing to radically express myself to the fullest.

Why? Because I believe this:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson

I believe that it’s our cosmic duty (yes, I’m arguing yours too) to each be our most authentic selves in order to liberate the entire world.

So now the question is…how do we approach this monumental feat of radical self expression to create what we all want - FREEDOM?

No matter what your pursuit of excellence is - playing Chopin scherzos, learning how press handstand, spending 50 days in silent meditation - the common factor is this: in the learning process, you must employ structure, form, and hard work before you let go.

I find that people are too quick to express spiritual directives like “Let go” or “Trust in the universe”…perhaps because its fun to delve into the esoteric, the mystery of the unknown…or maybe because it’s the easy way to “live out” spirituality.

But ask any Olympic athlete, Grammy nominee, or Nobel Peace prize winner - anyone that’s achieved a high level of performance in any field - it takes a lot of hard work…and for a long time!

You do all that you can do. You the do work, you prepare. You get ready for the opportunity to step in. And then you let go.

You do the work. You do whatever is necessary to be prepared for whatever it is you’re trying to acquire, or attain, or accomplish. And then then you let it go. You release it. You release all attachment to the outcome because you know you have done everything you can possibly do.

And when you’ve done everything that you can do, that’s the moment of surrender. Release.

And then if it’s supposed to be yours, it will come to you.
— Oprah Winfrey

Letting go is part of the spiritual process, but it comes into play much later when people want it to. You see effective “letting go” when a figure skater takes a breath before his long program at the Olympics. When a doctorate student stands before her professor to turn in her dissertation. When a mother says goodbye to her college age son.

Spirituality is a practice - a discipline - So why would the developmental process be any different?

Do the work. Leave no stone unturned, no question unasked.

Why?

Not because it is easy or enjoyable.
But because it is necessary to leave no life untouched.

This is why I created DEEPER.
