When I was a young boy I would go to our cottage in the summer on the East Coast of the United States in Maine. I don’t remember about much about the drive, just the anticipation of getting there.

What is so hard about letting go? Why do we hold on so tightly to past wrongs that have been done to us? Is there a way of releasing this “stuff” and moving on?
Recently I went on a road trip with my partner and her family through the vast and beautiful countryside in Western Canada. This is a trip I have done many times in my life (as recent as last year) and I never get tired of the scenery.
How do you feel when you are in a state of joy? What is it that gets you there? When you’re with people you like or love and are telling stories about your day or your life ; does that bring a sense of joy to your heart?
What do we think of when we hear someone say “That’s so weird!” or “What a weirdo!?” The inclination is to think that weird or weirdos are bad, bringing a negative connotation to everything weird. If you look up weird in the dictionary, it actually means uncanny, supernatural and mysterious to name a few. It also has an archaic Scottish meaning which is a person’s destiny.

What do you do think of when you hear a baby’s laughter?!?
How do you feel when you are in the presence of youthful exuberance?!?

I recently went on an epic road trip covering a small part of Western Canada. A friend of my wife’s had recently arrived from England to visit. We wanted to show her the vast beauty of the land and different changes that occur to the landscape every couple of hundred kilometers. This can be hard to grasp from pictures or images from the internet. She is from a small town in northern England where the countryside is rather beautiful. The difference is, if you drive 500 kilometers you would be in another country, here in Canada you would still be in the same province. The geography is ever-changing, big, bold and beautiful.
Did you ever wake up in the morning and have a burning need to call someone who you haven’t seen for a long time? Maybe you should pay close attention to these things.
It’s your inner voice or intuition whispering in your ear.
The Aha moment. .
Where were you? When you found out for the first time that something existed other than yourself.
What caused you to think about it?
Was there a pivotal moment or experience that caused you to see things in a different light?
For me it was about making a change in my life. Having too much fun in the physical, material world and no connection to the spiritual one was it. I felt there was no satisfaction in that life.
