My spiritual journey

As a result of deep spiritual awakenings and experiences, I no longer identify as a Mormon. Here’s why.

Shortcuts and counterfeits

When we engage in shortcuts and counterfeits, they leave us empty and unfulfilled. The need we’re seeking to fulfill isn’t met, and we feel emptier than before.

A river of emotions

Painful emotions can be a stagnant swamp that poisons & strangles life, or a flowing river that gives & enhances life. It depends on how we deal with them.

Embracing the dark side

Each one of us has a terrifying cave called the “shadow,” into which we must venture to find the deepest, darkest, most painful truth about ourselves.

The healthy version of YOLO

Death is a certainty. But suffering is a choice. By embracing the healthy, mindful version of YOLO, we alleviate our suffering and that of others.
