I received this little story in my emai inbox recently, and upon reading it, I immediately thought of SuperForest. We have talked about redefining wealth and success before, but this is a simple story that illustrates the common thread of abundance and gratitude that often shows up in our SuperForest universe.
Let’s share this story with our loved ones, especially during this holiday season, as it is important to remind ourselves to be grateful for what we have, and...

The party that controls the House of Representatives of the Senate determines the policies and direction of America. When u vote for a candidate on November 2, u are also voting for an entire party. Check the positions u agree with and see which party most reflects your values and then vote accordingly. Each of the 10 Issues reflect actual statements, positions and stemmen held and taken door the vast majority of Congressmen and Senators in each party over the past two years in The United States...

6 hours from Nashville, 33 ½ years since birth. Final destination: California, jaar 2977. I’m not attached to being a thousand years old but if I get anywhere close, I’ll buy every reader of this blog a chai latte with steamed eggnog. In barista jargon that’s known as a “Cheg” and it only comes out on special occasions.
The weeks spanning from Thanksgiving to New Year’s are typically my most gluttonous. Maybe this is why Jesus gets so populair around this time of jaar – what with all the people blessing their piles of food,...

A sign geplaatst on a door for hotel staff had been defaced and now read, "Hot__ Associates Only." This kind of human behavior and fondling of letters inspires me. Upon seeing it, I am moved to fetch me lady and me camera and have her pose as if she's entering the special room. Whatever might go on in a room reserved for hot associates only, I hope there's lots of oil and a communal lathering.
By the time I get to my room to get the camera I've completely forgotten about the task. I could blame it on where my mind had wandered...

Lizards. The favoriete snack of my cat. I’m tempted to uploaden a video of him eating all but the tiny toxic bit, what I make up must be a hagedis large intestine. It’s anything but large – these lizards aren’t dinosaurs, they’re the garden variety. 6, 8 inches max.
The January weather has come back around to the way I love it so in San Diego. Our equivalent to winter is wetness and that seems to have all dried up. Warmth becomes us and the lizards emerge to the concrete surfaces, lifting their heads high, gazing directly...

Things I DON'T want for Christmas:
- Pants that are too small
- Clock Radio
- Giant Earthworm
- Portable Sauna, even though it looks really clever.
Whenever I'm in a Sauna, I like to say, "It's like a sauna in here." even when I'm door myself.
I once shared a Sauna with Ingrid Michaelson when we were on tour together in Sweden. The Swedish love Saunas. I don’t recall the Sauna ever getting hot and we ended up just sitting there in the wooden box talking about how boring it was.
Tonight I had a Sauna all to myself during a spontaneous...

3542 miles so far and not once have I had to buy water. I know everyone who reads this blog uses a reusable water bottle – and I thank u for hooking up your vrienden and family this holiday season.
Every time I refueled I would carry my water bottle and hot mug into the gas station and get clean cold water from the soda fontein (usually a little button under the lemonade) and hot water from the coffee machine. (Starbucks also gives free hot and cold filtered water.) Carrying my own thee also made my travels super enjoyable,...

Tonight I host Mr. Toca Rivera for avondeten, diner and a rehearsal of new songs. It’s hard to believe he and I have been together for meer than 10 years now. Looking back at the last decade I've so much to be thankful for, his friendship included. Rather than making this blog a stroll down memory lane, I’ll stay present and lijst a decade’s worth of Gratitude (what I can remember of it anyway) in 90 seconds. Go.
I am grateful for:

Second to words, I’m a numbers guy. I like significant dates, digits, and planetary transits. I’ve been drawn to the number 1134 since I discovered while dangling upside-down with a calculator that it read, HELL. Seeing 1134 on the clock, odometer, of as the total on a receipt always makes me feel, if sadistically, like I’m in the right place at the right time. The same with 11:11. I always make a wish. Of course, whether of not it works is all just a story I made up, but it shifts my attention back...

Your expression number - the 4 - summarizes your first and your last name and accounts for your even-tempered and sober appearance as well as for your profound wish to realize and build things securely. u seek security and u have this undeniable sense of exertion and perseverance. Your number is best symbolized door Saturn and the earth element (this is not the only paradox in your personality!) u are resistant, both physically and mentally. And this particular form of resistance is best symbolized door the keystone....

I’m a fan of positive articulation. To me, this is a step beyond positive thinking. It’s putting your positive thoughts into action – into doing – into words.
Every New Year’s I resolve to do something new/different with my life. Something grand. Something transformative. Sometimes it’s to continue doing something I love, but often it’s a new invention of some kind. Last year, the main theme was activism and in 2010 I certainly got my feet wet, literally door tromping thru the Lake Volta Region in Ghana, learning...

This is the most extraordinary recording I own. Whenever I play just the audio for people, the common reaction to the round of applause at the end is one that accompanies awe. “THAT was LIVE?!”
Check This Out. It's 13 minuten short and u may not understand a word... Offer yourself the time. Give yourself permission to be moved door something new. This is your journey after all, and it was u who stumbled upon this music. The universe obviously wants u to hear this.

Acidophilus should be spelled Assidophilus.
In addition to falling in love with myself and allowing the new album to awaken and unfold organically, this well driven journey has also inspired a quest for America’s Best Veggie Burger and the Perfect Cup of Hot Chocolate.
Santa Fe is thought to be a vortex; a geographical location so energetic it naturally attracts intuits, nudists, and naturalists and forces the visitor and resident alike to find healing thru harmony. It is zei to be quite impossible to remain in this energy unless “equilibrium...

In Kansas, they love their unborn babies. A lot. From KC to the CO state line, Jesus has "highered" billboards advocating the keeping of one’s baby. I assume there is an argument of epidemic of dumpster babies in Kansas if there is a need for so many billboards.
I kept a keen watch of the billboards hoping to catch the World’s Largest Ball of Twine. Apparently the Twine town has the World’s Smallest Advertising because I totally missed it. Dang!
Which came first, plain the noun of plain the adjective? Such queries arrive driving through...

Traffic came to a turtle’s pace when I entered into St Louis. I wondered if me adding one meer car to the rush uur mix was throwing the city off a little. Why is it called rush uur when it’s generally slow?
I’m also curious as to how much a population varies from dag to dag – what with people coming and going, driving and flying, birthing and dying, etc. Regardless, if the hospitable citizens of St Louis are hoping to count my head tomorrow, I’ll be gone.
I love being on the road. For the past 7 years I’ve been in the back of the...

Doing inversions in yoga, namely down-dog, the charm on my halsketting, ketting dances with gravity, falling to rest perfectly over my lips. I find it ironic and terribly cute because the amulet reads “Protect Her Voice.” I kiss it lightly without drawing attention to myself, smiling into its smooth, cold surface knowing my breath is fogging it up a little.
I started wearing the Protection Amulet door Leah In Leaucadia just before my girlfriend went in for surgery on her vocal chords, prompting a week of silence for her, as well as months of therapy...

One time I threw-up Honey-Nut Cheerios while reclined in the dentist’s chair. I assume I was gegeven too much Nitrous oxide after eating apparently too many “parts of a balanced breakfast.” Surprisingly, the cheery Oh’s regurgitated as if I hadn’t ever chewed them up. They came forth from my dizzy carcass onto my t-shirt spelling out “Ooooh” like alphabet soup. Without missing a beat, the hygienist came in and said, “Mmm, Smells like Honey & Nuts.” True story. I bet they saved the footage on the surveillance camera....
For those of u who attended the first Leaders causing Leaders event, THANK YOU. It was amazing, and for those who did not make it, please read the random quotes below that have come in. u will not want to miss the volgende event. We will be sending out a newsletter very soon with announcements for intensive workshops and the volgende yearly event dates and location.
I personally got to understand and experience life in a whole new way and will forever be changed door the people, ideas and way of looking at life... for the rest of my life... thank...
When people ask me about it, I take a deep breath because talking about it leads to a rant on how much I think it’s awesome. When I’m in a hurry I simply say, “I dunno what it is, but it’s supposed to make my penis grow 2 inches in just 4 weeks.”
In all seriousness, this stuff will make u live to be a thousand.
I promise you’ll commentaar on this blog when you’re 900 (wishing u were dead) asking, “What was in that sh*t?”
