Have the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have

Pocket

In a world that lives like a fist, mercy is no more than waking with your hands open.

So much can happen with our hands open. In fact, closing and stubbornly maintaining our grip is often what keeps us stuck, though we want to blame everything and everyone else, especially what we’re holding on to.


There is an ancient story from China that makes all this very clear. It stems from the ways traps were set for monkeys. A coconut was hollowed out through an opening that was cut to the size of a monkey’s open hand. Rice was then placed in the carved-out fruit which was left in the path of the monkeys. Sooner or later, a hungry monkey would smell the rice and reach its hand it. But once fisting the rice, its hand could no longer fit back out through the opening. The monkeys that were caught were those who would not let go of the rice.

As long as the monkey maintained its grip on the rice, it was a prisoner of its own making. The trap worked because the monkey’s hunger was the master of its reach. The lesson for us is profound. We need to always ask ourselves, What is our rice and what is keeping us from opening our grip and letting it go?

The truth is that food is everywhere. Though the stubborn monkey believes in its moment of hunger that there is no other food, it only has to let go for its life to unfold. Our journey to love is no different. For though we stubbornly cling, believing in our moment of hunger that there is no other possibility of love, we only have to let go of what we want so badly and our life will unfold. For love is everywhere.



Philosopher-poet and cancer survivor, Mark Nepo opens a new season of freedom and joy–an escape from deadening, asleep-at-the wheel sameness–that is both profound and clarifying. His spiritual daybook is a summons to reclaim aliveness, liberate the self, take each day one at a time, and to savor the beauty offered by life’s unfolding.

Reading his poetic prose is like being given second sight, exposing the reader to life’s multiple dimensions, each one drawn with awe and affection.

The Book of Awakening is the result of his journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. Nepo speaks of spirit and friendship, urging readers to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships.

Encompassing many traditions and voices, Nepo’s words offer insight on pain, wonder, and love. Each entry is accompanied by an exercise that will surprise and delight the reader in its mind-waking ability.

How Your Beliefs Affect Your Biology

Free Audio: How Your Beliefs Affect Your Biology

Our bodies are amazing.

Your heart beats 100 times a minute. Your brain signals travel 268 miles per hour. You can regrow damaged skin in weeks.

But if you knew how your beliefs affect the well-oiled machine of your biology…

You might be ready to change them.

When Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. wrote The Biology of Belief, he did it after spending decades in genetic research.

He discovered that genes weren’t an end-all-be-all when it comes to disease.

In fact… it’s the environment that turns genes on or off. The genes aren’t in charge at all.

What does that mean for you?

If you’ve ever thought you were a victim of a genetic predisposition, or were afraid you may die from breast cancer because your mom or grandmother got it…

You have hope.

When you can shift your thinking, beliefs and emotions to be life-supportive, much like Louise Hay has spent years teaching… your genes may not be what matters.

In this light-hearted interview between Bruce and Louise, you’ll learn how Bruce discovered Louise’s You Can Heal Your Life method after shattering his knee on stage.

And you’ll discover why Louise called Bruce a case of “instant love” because of his ability to prove, scientifically, that your thoughts affect your biology.
