This quote struck a chord the first time I heard it seventeen years ago. But it wasn’t until recently that I was able to take it from from the elusive to actual explanation. And it’s thanks to a conversation between Keith Raniere (a scientist, among other things) and Tiffany Persons (a leader of an international non-profit). If the idea of breaking out of glass prisons is part of your bucket list, you’ll want to keep reading.Read More
Fantastic quote of the day:
– Robert Tew
I'm so, so excited to share part of my life and work with the world today. Since 2001, I've been part of NXIVM and Executive Success Programs, which are founded by scientist and humanist Keith Raniere. His mind, character and personal example have had a profoundly positive impact on my life. Today, these companies are unveiling video footage of Mr. Raniere for the first time.
Keith Raniere Conversations features him in one-on-one interviews with different notable individuals. I've had the privilege of working on this project for a few years, and absolutely love everything I've watched (and I mean it!). I find his "informal thoughts" tremendously insightful, thought-provoking, funny, and a catalyst for some serious soul searching.

We cannot change what we are not aware of,
and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.

Like birth, creation is a painful process. To be able to create, one has to destroy first, and destruction is synonymous with pain. I have seen people who have been with you for the last forty years and they are still petty, still full of the small self. I do not want that...Read More
Recently I've caught a few episodes of a show in which the main character—who was alive during the American Revolutionary War—is brought back to life in present day. Various movies and books play with the same theme, but I found this show to have decent writing and a clever way of juxtaposing past and present so it reminds us just how fortunate we are to be alive—how much we have, yet take for granted.Read More
I was cleaning out my phone images today and found the one below. In an attempt to search for the author to credit her (I'm assuming), I found the one below that in a blog. I love it when one of those deep, guttural laughs pounces on you unexpectedly...Read More
It's minutes before New Year's.
I remember one year I celebrated with my father and my cousin Charlie, who was several years older than I was (thirteen at the time). Minutes after the clock struck twelve, I asked my cousin, "What does it feel like to live in the 90's?"...
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
– Albert Einstein
Beyond those clouds, it just goes on forever.
The timing of events can be eerie sometimes. I was having a conversation with a couple of friends earlier today on being right. We weren't talking about your regular, run-of-the-mill rightness; no, this was the wrong type of right—I'm talking stealth, ninja, smokescreen, the works...
