My Philosophy ~ Be Kind, We’re all in this together.
Passionate about balance in whatever form it takes, I strive to abide. Whether it’s walking a tightwire or a slackline, climbing the tallest tree in the woods, riding my bike, or spending time with family, achieving a life in balance has always been the goal.
With a background in circus, music, and outdoor adventuring, my spiritual philosophy has been forged by a lifetime of practice. A devout citizen of the world and madly in love with its wonders, I suspect my real role in life is an ambassador of joy & wonder as well as being a consummate trickster.
I was lucky in the cosmic lottery to have been born a white male in America to a working middle-class family, and I readily acknowledge that privilege. I strive to embody being a compassionate human dedicated to serving the greater good and I’m most willing to work my ass off to make it happen.
My biggest challenges have to do with encountering selfishness and ignorance, and lord knows I try to take such interactions as opportunities to embody patience and mindfulness, though I usually don’t succeed. I sincerely believe we are always capable of achieving win-win solutions, it just takes a willingness to truly listen by everyone involved.
My tombstone should read:
Working towards mutually beneficial outcomes will be our salvation as a species.
The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. ~ Dante
