Transcript

I don't know when you're going to hear this, but I'm recording it on a Wednesday morning and Wednesday mornings I do the same sequence every week, a sequence I've been teaching for 11 years and that actually was developed in San Diego 50 years ago now. 

One of the things I'm realizing is Wednesdays embraces simplicity. My whole life I've spent chasing after dreams, chasing after goals in the pursuit of acquiring more things... things that would make me happy. 

I don't know if it's my age or the pandemic or whatever, but I've been on a mission to simplify my life and the simpler I've made my life, the happier I'm becoming.

That's what's amazing. I spent my whole life chasing after things chasing after people... chasing after my ego. 

And then what is it in the end? And, and it's not the end, but what is it now that it turns out I always wanted?

I wanted peace. I wanted ease. I'm discovering that... I'm discovering that that's something you can find... it's within yourself.

So let me make a suggestion. Maybe start thinking about simplifying your life a little bit, not chasing after every material thing, after every trip, after everything that zaps all of your life out of you. 

Instead, take a nice deep breath in, look around you, appreciate the moment, appreciate what you've got and love your life.

That's today's message. Move well. Stay healthy. Be happy. Live with passion and maybe find a simple life... If that works for.
