No matter how life is unfolding, the day will come when a house will fall on you or someone you love.

Every time I see The Wizard Of Oz, I’m reminded of why it’s the perfect allegory for our lives. Dorothy is the embodiment of our innocent, untarnished soul – loved and adored by everyone she meets. Toto is her child, her faithful companion and brave protector. The Twister is life with all…

...

There’s an old hunter’s adage that goes, “Some days you get the bear. Some days the bear gets you.” There are rules when it comes to grizzly bears. If you trespass on their territory or come near their cubs, they’ll attack. Unfortunately, human beings sometimes wander right into their path without even knowing it.

...

In a poem, the ancient Chinese poet Yu Xin states, "Behind the rock in the dark probably hides a tiger, and the coiling giant root resembles a crouching dragon." The term "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" is a translation of a Chinese idiom that simply means "talented or extraordinary people hidden from view."

Breaching the Chasm

...

Do you ever experience yourself as two different people - the roles you play for others and the authentic ever-present love that is your true identity?

There’s a chasm inside us all; a void that is best illustrated as a gulf between two mountains. One side is who you are on the level of your personality, and the other is who you are on the level of your soul. When your personality and…

The Art of Not Selling Out

Posted by Panache | Thursday, August 28, 2014 | : 7

...

I’ve noticed more and more these days how we glorify superficiality in our society. You see it in social media, reality TV, commercials, movies and music. Even our news channels have sold out. But while our cultural landscape seems to be waning, I believe there’s also an increasing desire for something significant and real in our lives.

As individuals, we’ve put undue pressure on ourselves to make a substantial living - even if…

I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams. I enjoyed watching him in so many movies. More than his comedic roles, though, it was his more serious performances that resonated made me love him.

Dead Poets Society is one of my favorite films of all time. His role in Good Will Hunting – playing the part of a mentor with a steadfast belief in the inherent genius of a disenfranchised young man…

It’s impossible to ignore turmoil taking place around the world today. War, epidemic diseases, natural disaster, and rising death tolls dominate the daily news cycle. It's easy to succumb to feeling overwhelmed by global events; indeed they are powerful illustrations of how powerless we actually are.

For me, there is a transcendent lesson in this acknowledgment of our own powerlessness. There comes a point when you have to stop running away from your…

There’s no shortage of blogs that will give you the scoop on the “Top 12 Things Happy People Do” or expose the “10 Scientifically Proven Ways To Be Incredibly Happy.” You can join Pharrell Williams and clap along, but in truth, you’re being sold a bill of goods.

In a recent interview at the Aspen Ideas Festival, PepsiCo CEO Indra K. Nooyi was asked if she thought, in this day and age, that women could “have it all” and achieve the ever-elusive work/life balance. Her candid answer surprised the crowd. “I don't think women can have it all,” she replied. “I just don't think so. We pretend we have it all. We pretend we can have it all. My husband and I…
