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.

Direction

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
– Lao Tzu

The direction of your life depends on you and your vision.

(if you aren’t happy with your life currently, a new vision might help) 

Dream.

Pray.

Dream some more. 

Pray some more.

And now you’re on your way.

Do It Today

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu


What dream do you have?

Are you taking actions towards your dream?

What is one thing you can do today to begin turning dreams into reality?

It won’t happen overnight, but it won’t happen until you first have the dream.

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy.” 
Isaac Newton

Nature appears to be meditating all the time. It is still. It doesn’t worry about anything yet it accomplishes its task.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” 
Lao Tzu

We’ve been educated to worry, but what if we didn’t? 

What if for at least one day we didn’t worry about anything – like Bob Marley sings.

My challenge for you is for one day this week, think about what it would be like to not worry about anything at all.

Simply live.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci

God Bless It All

Words are powerful. 

For example:

I had a wonderful childhood with the best parents a kid can imagine.

Sometimes when my father was fixing something & got hurt he would yell “GOD BLESS IT ALL!!!”

& it was hilarious.

We could hear the pain in his tone but we laughed because our house was filled with love.

It still is.

In reflection I now see the power of those words, “God bless it all,” & am eternally thankful for my parent’s love.

The Artist’s Life

Is a life of Art; painting, singing, dancing, writing, discovering, creating, exploring, dreaming.

These all fall into the category of Art, but so does teaching, cooking, cleaning, traveling, and working wherever you are – if they are worked upon with focused concentration & intentions of Love.

Anyone can be an artist, but only few are.

Where your mind goes, there you will go too…

“Everything you can imagine is real.” 
― Pablo Picasso
