Shots from “Maria’s Boys”

 

Here are a couple of candid moments from the set of Maria’s Boys! A wonderful project with tons of potential! Coming soon to a computer or mobile screen near you!!

That last shot is with co-stars André Bédard and Joëlle Jérémie! What could Maria’s Boys be doing for a living? Hmmm…

Nurture your Wisdom, Reason and Compassion

Today I am self-employed. After years of trying to fit into the system and getting spit out every which way, I decided to say fuck it and followed my own heart and intuition instead. I don’t buy the old fallacy of appeal to authority you see.

Today I am all about opening eyes, hearts and souls. Instead of struggling to make money, like everyone else, I decided to face my fear of scarcity. I’ve opened my eyes to the fact that debt is inherent to the economic system. On a Global scale, there is always more debt than money available. And the discrepancy keeps on growing. Today, 15 million children die of starvation every year. Today, those who are truly in power are the multinationals who have the money and influence to buy out any Supreme Court judge, politician or President. If we let them. Our Home is in deep suffering and we are all controlled to some extent by our conditioning and our individual and collective fear. Our monetary system promotes egocentrism. It promotes the idea of Win/Lose, whether you personally believe in Win/Win or not.

A time of Great Change is at hand. You must make a choice today. You will either accept and promote the needed change, or you will resist it. Just as you suffer when you resist the Present Moment, you will suffer if you resist this Great Change. A very wise man once said, truthfully: “The only Constant in the Universe is Change”.

The only Constant in the Universe is Change

What this Great Change will be exactly is still unknown. To me, it is a blissful, poetic mystery. To you, it may be a source of fear and anxiety. It all depends on your perspective. You have a very important part in how all of this will unfold.

We must be creative. We must promote the idea of giving for the sake of giving. We must inhabit it, live it and breathe it. We must be the change we want to see in the world. We must be stronger than the conditioning we’ve been given. We must awaken to our own potential. We must expand our sense of self to include the other.

That’s what Love is.

Love yourself first. No matter what. It is the only way to love others unconditionally. Nurture your wisdom, reason and compassion.

Thank you for reading. Feel free to re-read it at will. Let it sink in.

The Bestest New Year’s Resolution EVER!

No more Yearly Resolutions!

Even betterer…Resolve to make resolutions only in the present. Give yourself that present! For example, right now I want to face my fear of the cold and the humidity…I go outside and I go to the local swimming pool at the YMCA!

Contrast that with “This year…I’m quitting smoking!”

…You’ll probably feel bad about breaking that New Year’s Resolution a week or so from now…You’re going to need to light up another one! 

Find the courage to face your fears in the Present Moment! Don’t think about it.

Just do.
