Early this morning, I completed a very short but very beautiful meditation with Jeff Warren. It was entitled ‘kiss joy as it flies’. We meditated on the concept of not resisting change, on non-attachment to feelings, ‘good’ or ‘bad’ so we can experience joy (however transient it may be) that is around us.

Human and horse training
I follow a great horse trainer called Warwick Schiller I’ve used his methods with my horses and really love his energy and his endless quest for self-improvement.

And, with the right preparation, I’m able to get myself into a resourceful enough place so that my brain and mouth are able to engage at the same timeContinue reading “See you on the loop”
