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:
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!
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.
Not because it is easy or enjoyable.
But because it is necessary to leave no life untouched.
This is why I created DEEPER.
