Intent: The Basis of Mysteries

Intent:  The Basis of Mysteries

Many Eastern philosophies predate any of our modern, westernized philosophies which may mean to some men and women of our modern world that these philosophies are primative and without any realized proof or sustainable foundation of intellectual concepts.  Adding to the questionable quality of these ideas is that the passages of many of these texts are written in a highly anectdotal and metaphysical context lending a certain arcane and mystical sheen to their tenets regardless of the Universal truths they may be revealing.  This tends to devalue the material to the modern, scientific mind.

Nurture not the Emptiness

As some of you may already know we lost a vital member of the Kanary Team in February.  Maureen Kanary lost her battle with an aggressive, metastatic form of small cell lung cancer.  She was the main administrator, accounts receivable, muse and foundation of the Kanary Team for the passed 40 years.  She will be dearly missed and her life will be celebrated through our gratitude for the zest, inspiration and generous nature of the matriarch of the Kanary family.

Crisis Reveals: The Seed of Opportunity

Crisis Reveals: The Seed of Opportunity

It is my belief that Crisis, that fearful state of panic, is the catalyst for monumental change, for a quantum leap, a paradigm shift.  When you find yourself in crisis and are prepared; you have cleared limiting beliefs, the dross from your consciousness, found your individual purpose, defined the non-negotiable values by which you will live your life and take bold and effective action; crisis reveals the depth of your character, the greatness of which you are capable and the opportunities for results you have may have previously believed impossible to achieve.

The First Law of the Universe: Order

The First Law of the Universe:  Order

You are the direct result of the Universe, and whatever Architect created it, expressing the beauty of Creation.  Your higher, preferred self, your authentic self, the end of the tether where the connection to a Divine Source is absolute, the source of your subconscious, your creative thoughts and most joyous emotions, is in complete and immediate harmony with this expressive quality.

A Roof without a Ceiling: Developing Imagination

A Roof without a Ceiling: Developing Imagination

"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night."
-Edgar Allan Poe

Dreams can provide shelter from the mundane daily realities that may otherwise influence our choices, direction or momentum.  They are a roof that protects us from the shifting seasons of our lives through rich and luscious personal clarity and the ebb and flow of exchanging value within our social spheres.  Dreams spring forth from the well of our creative imagination, for which there is no ceiling.  Within this shelter we are not contained, our capacity for ideas is limitless.  A roof without a ceiling.

The Perspective and The Paradigm:  A David and Goliath Story about the importance of Adaptability

“All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive.”
-Yann Martel, The Life of Pi

Your Authentic Self

Your Authentic Self

There is part of you engaged in this physical realm, that side that can feel the supple texture of fine leather, enjoy the flavor of a well prepared salade nicoise, absorb the beauty of mingling colors on a canvas painted by Marc Chagall, languish in the resonance of an orchestra playing a Mozart symphony or bask in the fragrance of cherry blossoms blooming in the springtime.  This physical side of you is the gateway to and from your higher, preferred self.  Your authentic self from which the energies of the Universe spill forth to express Creation.  This Authentic Self is what we will be addressing today.​

7 Principles of a Top Performer

7 Principles of a Top Performer

The single greatest strategy any individual can learn about achieving excellence in life is to learn how to identify and achieve the goals that will add the greatest value to your personal, family and business life. Many people immerse themselves in knowledge, learning everything about life instead of who they want to become.

This is my belief and my experience; that every individual is capable of achieving outstanding results far and away from where they are today.

7 Stages of Consciousness

7 Stages of Consciousness

Consciousness can be assigned to awareness, but is not limited to the notion of relation or relativity.  It is not just the relation to events but also includes the processing of those events, the development of paradigms in the mind, habits in the social sphere and physiological executions of each.  Consciousness encompasses so much more than awareness.  It is not an exclusive aspect of the Human Experience as it has yet to have clearly defined and agreed upon boundaries.  For this particular article, we will assign Consciousness to our awareness of self and the outside world, the processing of that information and our chosen response to that information.

In this model there are 7 Stages of Consciousness.

Beyond the Comfort Zone

Beyond the Comfort Zone

Feeling Fear?  That's perfect!  It is your response that will define your progress.  Fear is an emotional reaction to change, to adversity, to opportunity.  It is not a fear of the circumstance itself but rather fear that you may fail.  Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.

"Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives."
     -William James
