Know Your Why

Why are you doing what you are doing?

Are you just staying busy or are you actually being productive?

And more importantly, what is it that you actually want to do?

What dreams do you have?

And how are you achieving them?

There is a big difference between being busy and being productive.

And we all have experienced both.

What’s important is what you do Today.

Know your why and then take action.

Integration

The definition of integration, from Oxford dictionary is “the action or process of integrating.” & Integrate is defined as “combine (one thing) with another so that they become whole.”

The process of integration can take time, but it’s always happening. 

Within these CoachT posts I bring to you what inspires me – ideas, people, places, experiences, and dreams. 

One experience that highly influenced my life was my first experience with psilocybin mushrooms. You can read about my first psilocybin trip here.

I’ve also been involved as an activist towards legalizing plant medicines, because I know their healing qualities firsthand. 

I’ve created a pen name, Psil Silva, where I share my experiences & add my two cents into life, in regards to the area of natural plant medicines like psilocybin mushrooms.

My name, your name, these aren’t as important as what is beyond our names – the peace beyond understanding.

& this is why it’s hard for many to understand – because it’s literally beyond understanding. 

It’s an experience. 

Anyway, I hope to integrate my websites, books, & ideas, to share the best of what I learn, with you.

It may be useful & it may not, so, as Bruce Lee says “absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own.” 

It’s all related, all connected, and one of the short books I wrote that you may like best is titled The 7 Psychedelic Meditations.

Check it out here on Amazon & please leave a review. 

Let me know what you think! 🙂

Patience

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
– Aristotle


Where are you going?

What’s the rush?

Sometimes a sense of urgency is necessary, and sometimes it’s not.

And sometimes we’re all so busy rushing around that we forget the joy in this moment.

Take a deep breath.

Be here, now.

And from here, you can go anywhere.

Where are you going?

“If you don’t know where you are going any road can take you there” 
― Lewis Carroll

Alice wandered around wonderland for awhile, not knowing where she was going. She experienced extraordinary wonders beyond belief, but she didn’t know what they all meant.

She didn’t know where she was going – she didn’t have a planned destination, so that is exactly what she experienced in wonderland.

Once you realize your dream, keep them with you. Your dreams are roadmaps on route to your destination, and they are yours for a reason.

Believe in your dreams, and watch them come true.

Adversity is a Gift

“Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course.”
—William Shakespeare 

You lost the election.

You bet on the wrong stock.

You missed the game winning field goal.

You fell down face first into a pile of mud.

And it hurt. 

It still does sometimes.

But you weren’t meant to remain in pain.

The pain – the adversity, is an opportunity to grow, to learn, to prosper, but in the moments it happens it’s almost impossible to appreciate.

Adversity doesn’t feel good, but it carries within it a gift.

The gift of experience.

“Experience is the teacher of all things.”
—Julius Caesar

The gift may be hidden, but it’s there, waiting for you to find it, open it, & move forward – stronger, wiser, and ready for the next opportunity.

Express Yourself

“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”
– John Lennon

But first, express how you feel.

This is difficult to do in societies that don’t encourage self-expression, but it is essential toward creating a better tomorrow, for us all.

There is something within you that this world needs now more than ever.

Discover it & share it.

The world will thank you.

Compare Less. Do more

Sometimes I scroll through social media and find myself comparing myself to famous people who seem to have “made it.”

Yes they have made it to where they are, and that’s perfect, but that’s not where our focus should be.

My focus, your focus, our focus, should remain upon our own lives, our own goals, our own dreams.

When you stop comparing and start focusing and working on improving your own life, life improves. 

It takes time, but it’s worth it.

“Stay in your lane. Comparison kills creativity and joy.”
-Brene Brown

Self-Directed

What does self-directed mean? 

It means the belief in free will. 

It means owning responsibility for YOUR life, as your life is the only one you can truly control. 

Lots of people waste time in the gossip, rumors, & other mis-informed distractions. 

You won’t ever find true happiness there. The only place you’ll find it is within yourself.

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
-William Shakespeare
