THIS BLOG IS A DEEP EXAMINATION OF THE IDEAS OF AWARENESS AND SELF
Awareness and the Self are squishy topics that are often poo-pooed in our society and many people may look upon this with disdain and contempt, but the truth is, Awareness and Self are the most important things in life. It is long past time that we as individuals and as a society looked inward past this disdain to find and free our True Selves.
I WRITE FOR THOSE WHO ARE READY
There are many moments in life where we stand on an internal precipice. The precipice is built of what has been in our lives. Over the edge lies what can be. The questioning of what is and what we accept in life leads to this time and again. I write for those who are stepping over that edge into what can be. Those who understand that living life as they were is not sustainable. Ahead is possibility and understanding. I write for those who are ready to examine and accept the power of that possibility.

Who I am is always evolving. In it’s simplest form, I’m human just like you. This is often too abstract for us as we have a need to categorize and organize what we come in contact with. It is what helps our human minds cope with the stimuli of the world.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
In life there are many beginnings and many endings. One clear one, was when my wife and I dropped out of college in 1997. We were dating at the time, and we both realized that college and the paths that traditionally follow it were not for us. We were bored and unfulfilled by the experience. That was an end, and a beginning.
Over the next 7 years we sought. We sought the things we thought we were supposed to seek to have happiness, and while we had happiness in those times, we were not really happy. In 2004 we moved to Central Wisconsin, and that was a shift, another beginning. This brought us closer to awareness, but not there yet. We still struggled, we still didn’t fully understand. Early 2009 was another beginning, the beginning of a real awakening of awareness and the self. Brought on by work issues I can not talk about and health issues.
In November of 2009 I started my daily self-portrait project, and that was the beginning of releasing my true self. I spent that year stripping myself down, removing the crust of life through my portraits and looking within to find my true self. During that time my wife was also diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma (she is alive and well). A shock and trail that helped us understand even further.
I have learned much through these beginnings and endings. I have learned both actively and passively. Seeking knowledge directly and finding knowledge through the practice of life and the mistakes and successes that are inherent to life. I want to share this knowledge with you, to help you along your way, along your path to awareness.
As someone once said, when the student is ready to learn the lesson, the teacher will appear. I am that teacher. I am also a student, a Master and a Disciple.
