Choose to Not Follow Your Passion — You Will Remain Caged

Shee actually never read the book from cover to cover, Shee would simply open it to whatever page her hands chose.

You’re sitting at your desk or laying in bed with your laptop open. You check emails and one of them catches your attention. You read the email while a chill runs down your spine. What you do next can either keep you caged within a place you are not comfortable with, or your choice could change your life forever.

Almost a year ago, I was contacted by a global peer network of chief executives and business leaders about speaking at a yearly conference to be held in Hamilton, Bermuda. Up until that point, I had never heard of them. I thought, “Cool, I can go back to Bermuda and have some fun telling some stories… no big deal.”

Why did…

Delete The Word, “My” From Relationships

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

the dog of me, Lucky... I say it this way because I do not possess him... nor shall ever possess another soul... for, this is not the way of the Universe. the dog of me, Lucky…
I say it this way because I do not possess him…
nor shall ever possess another soul…
for, this is not the way of the Universe…

the same truth applies to any relationship…

the word, “my” will never again precede any other word connected to another living being.

Walking the Line

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

Random thought of the day while walking with, Lucky…

“I suppose I’m like Marty McFly from “Back to the Future”…
you call me “Chicken” when I say I want to do something…
that just fires me up to go for it.

I’ll tell ya about it when I get back…
I may not be successful in the mind of another,
but I will learn something and this is the most important aspect of experiences…”

thus, success takes on a more powerful meaning…
Growth of spirit…
where there exists growth, there exists success.

Fear of death does not come into play…
for, I manifest life…
with fear eliminated…

One can do anything and success will always be on the horizon with the sun rising in a beautiful way.

This video was shot the day I got back from Bermuda back in June of 2011, after leaving my sailboat there for repairs…

Book Launch Party for “Path of Three Hundred: Volume 1” Will Happen Where It All Began

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

book launch party

I never intended to write a book. Once I returned from a solo sailing adventure in the Atlantic Ocean, I began to write. One day I had a scary thought, “I could write a book about this.” – See more at:http://blog.balboapress.com/blow-away-the-fear-of-writing-your-book-in-one-easy-step/#sthash.8ODijDS6.dpuf

This is the first Book Launch Party…I never had one for the first two editions…those two editions were more of an experiment…a dipping of my toes into the vast ocean of writing. Much has changed since then.

I now have a publisher, Balboa Press, a Division of Hay House for this Revised and Expanded Third Edition.

Balboa has arranged for a videographer to film an Author Interview of me for the book. The interview will be held at Masonboro Yacht Club & Marina some time on the 24th, but as of yet I do not know the time or even who the videographer is.

How Can A Phrase Like, “Entry By Sea”, Transform A Life?

Tags

, ,

On June 17, 2011, I arrived in Bermuda alone after being at sea for eight days and nights.  Once I sailed up to the Customs Dock and tied by boat off, I was asked this question:

“Where’s your crew?”  

My answer was simple, “I don’t have one.  I am alone.”

entry by sea

Hearing that question sent a deep reflection into my soul which resonates to this day exactly four years later.  The entire adventure transformed me in separate stages of growth.  I suppose too much thrown at me by the Universe at one time and I would have lost it completely.  (Funny, some think I completely lost it years ago…LOL.)

I could keep writing, but today is an anniversary of sorts.  I am going to take the dog of me, Lucky, to the beach where he can run and chase the shadow of birds as they fly past him.  Me?  I will stare out to sea and dream of the day when I set sail again.

The video was shot by me on a camera I had while at sea.  I shot this on June 17, 2011 at the end of my first day back in “civilization”.   The power of the phrase, “Entry By Sea” can be seen here.  

Doing things like this is how I Thrive.

 

Is today a day you will always remember? A question impossible to answer.

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

Four years ago today became the beginning of a transformation…
June 9, 2011 will always be a day of celebration for me…
a day I became free even though I didn’t realize it at the time…

the dock lines were tossed from a dock onto my Little She…
lines which were seen at the time as if of a binding…
yet, lines are there for us to remain connected and we all are…

the lines of all humans…
the lines of me…
are pure when unconditional love is present…

much can happen in years passing…
as I have wandered from place to place with Lucky…
a call deep within soul is there…

Home is a place of love…
I felt this at sea…
I feel it now.

Recently Published! Path of Three Hundred: Volume 1, 3rd Edition

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

longtail under sailHave you ever just wanted to take off?  Think about it.

Balboa Press, a Division of Hay House, recently published the Revised and Expanded Third Edition of “Path of Three Hundred” in Hardcover, Paperback with an Ebook version coming very soon.

Upon my return from a solo sailing adventure of almost two thousand miles across open ocean, I felt compelled to share the story of self-transformation. I single-handed a small sailboat from Wilmington, North Carolina to the tiny island of Bermuda and back. My book, “Path of Three Hundred” is the story told in the third person.

I felt compelled to write the book because of the transformation of self while being at sea through the physical challenges I faced while alone. There is no place to “pull over” out there. There is no one to take the helm so that I could rest when tired or hungry while the…

Question Everything…

Life seen through Poetry: Inspired by the Muse of Me

You are given the ability to Create…

All of those who have come before you…

are no better than you…

so, question everything including that which all others take for granted…

ψ

All others are human just like you…

they know not what is best for you…

or even themselves…

so, question what they say to you even if you agree…

ψ

You are given that right by birth…

for, you are the same as them in your humanity…

no human is better or worse than you…

so, question that which comes out of their mouth…

ψ

You are the product of the same Entity…

and their version of the Entity is simply that…

a version…

so, question what your version is and listen…

Listen to your Inner Voice…

we all have the same ability if we sit quietly and listen…

the Inner Voice speaks to all of us…

Video

Trailer for Changing Course, aka: “Path of Three Hundred”

, , ,

 

After over 2 years of not doing anything with the footage of the solo sailing adventure, I have put together this rough cut from some of the footage. Most of which I shot while at sea. There is much more footage while at sea and even more shot by the production crew before I set sail on June 9, 2011.

The original title of the film is “Changing Course“. All of the current credits can be found on the “Changing Course” IMDb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1854517/combined

The entire documentary will be years in the making since I will set sail alone again someday. This film is a segment of the adventure…the first one and is the subject of “Path of Three Hundred“.

Through my passion for Life…
I express feelings strongly…
then…
I let them go.
