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 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. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. In my best moments, the answer is 'right where I am.' In other moments... Paris...Hawaii...in an ecstatic embrace with my beloved...or anywhere that is full of joy, adventure, and conscious, creatively inspired people!

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.

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.
