Be Moore: Dead Man Walking

Bryndan “Be” Moore claims to know how he is supposed to DIE, and he’s hell bent on stopping it.

Sounds like science fiction right? Maybe an episode of Quantum Leap or Flash Forward. But spend a few minutes talking with Moore, and you’ll know he’s dead serious about changing this version of the future. Does he have what it takes to change his fate?

Dead Man Walking!

(Laughing) I guess so!

Relieving the Clutter

AS A MEDITATION TEACHER, people often tell me they are seeking a “quieter” mind. But what they really mean is they want a more “present” mind. A present mind, by nature, feels quieter and less cluttered.

Technically, everybody’s mind is “busy.” Brain scientists say the average person has a new thought about once a second. This equals to more than 60,000 thoughts each day. And did you know that 90% of the thoughts you have today will get rolled over into tomorrow?

The higher the quality of thoughts we have, the clearer the mind feels. And the lower the quality, the more cluttered it feels. Doubts, criticism, insecurity, and worrying about the past and future would fall into the “lower quality” thought category. Thoughts dealing in present moment awareness are of a higher quality.

It takes consistent practice to cause a shift in thought quality.

THE GOOD NEWS IS that people have been achieving present moment awareness through various spiritual practices like meditation and yoga for thousands of years. It has been well-documented that each of us has the power to naturally liberate our minds from the clutter – without drugs, surgery or drastic life changes.

The benefits from the little time we invest in this endeavor will positively impact every area of our daily life as we derive more clarity of purpose in our business dealings, educational pursuits, and relationships. Present moment awareness is an invaluable tool for helping us to better understand where we are, to appreciate what we have, and to effortlessly direct our minds, really, to whatever ends we desire.

And you don’t need permission from anyone to get started. Just start. The ripple effects from the steps you take today in the direction of present moment awareness will benefit you, and those around you, for generations.

If you haven’t already done so, make 2010 your year to tap into the goldmine of infinite creative potential that is already inside of you, awaiting your discovery.

Warm Regards,

Don’t forget to Water the Roses

I once heard a wise man say: “Attention is like water from a garden hose. Whatever you place it on will grow.”


The most valuable asset each of us owns is our attention. And if we were to ever find ourselves in the throes of change so unexpected or unanticipated that we are unable to detect any good that can come from it, a powerful question to ask ourselves is: where will I place my attention right now?

In other words, do I place my attention on what I feel I am (or someone else is) lacking? Am I going to focus on the worst possible interpretation of this event and construct an assumption-laden storyline to support that viewpoint?

Or, do I make the conscious choice to affirm the high end of all that I am? And am I going to acknowledge that this too is happening for my highest and best good, even if I don’t yet understand how and why?

These two directions can lead to polar opposite inner experiences: one where we play the victim in an unfair life versus the other where we accept the role of co-creator in a life that is unfolding perfectly. Even not making a conscious choice is still making a choice as far as Nature is concerned.

It’s so easy to sulk, to gossip, to negate, and to allow our emotions to control us. But when we make the powerful choice to calibrate our attention with the evolutionary intention of Nature’s intelligence, then we may have an easier time accepting that life’s inevitable let downs and disappointments are beyond our immediate control. We may also find it a little easier to let go of that nagging need to know why things turned out like they did.

To that end, our attention can either spiral us further out into confusion and self-flagellation, or it can become the paintbrush with which we continue to create and refine our wonderfully adventurous, ever-evolving life where we may not know what’s coming next, but we do know that it will ultimately lead to something good. Nature awaits our cue, but the choice is always ours.

Happy Holidays and warm regards,

BlackBerry Vs. iPhone Experience

I describe myself as more “tech-curious” than “early adopter”. I like for my gadgets to be low maintenance, intuitive and then sleek – in that order.

Having been a BlackBerry user for a number of years, and then trying out the iPhone, I thought I could offer some perspective to those who are considering switching over.

To someone who has never used either device, you may find this piece extremely boring, as it is more technical than not, with none of my usual references to spirituality or meditation (well, with one exception at the very end of the review – of course).

When the new iPhone 3GS was released a couple of months ago, I was actually having some technical issues with my BlackBerry. My carrier (AT&T) offered to replace it, but instead I chose to see what all of the hype was about around the new iPhone. I dumped the BlackBerry with joy and got a shiny new, white 32 gig iPhone 3GS on 4th of July weekend.

Staying Young Naturally

A friend of mine recently gave me a book called Staying Young (by Roizen and Oz), which is sort of a layperson’s guide to understanding the variables that stimulate and accelerate the body aging process. Here’s a snippet that I felt inspired to share with you:
