“Stay away from Oranges”

Suffice it to say my first directive from muscle testing wasn’t exactly earth shattering. 

The first time I did it was with my acupuncturist in New York. I had some stomach pain and he used the technique to test me for food allergies.

The basic premise of muscle testing is …

The Infinite Game of Consciousness Evolution

by Scott

The first time I encountered the concept of The Infinite Game was after interviewing Shopify’s GM of revenue Loren Padelford for Troops Built By Humans podcast.

I haven’t actually read the book by Simon Sinek, but my understanding is that the gist is basically the goal of the game is to perpetuate playing vs. achieve some finite “win” moment.

Finite games are defined as known players, fixed rules, and an agreed-upon objective. An infinite game is defined as known and unknown players, the rules are changeable, and the objective is not to win—the objective is to keep playing, keep perpetuating the game. – Simon Sinek

Applying this to your own life means allocating your time and energy to things you are insatiably interested in vs. finite pursuits …

A Lesson In Karma Yoga From Xfinity

by Scott

You’ve got to be fricken kidding me.

I had just driven to the Xfinity store to replace my mom’s buggy modem and now I was getting bopped around customer support like a pinball.

What would end up being a lesson in karma yoga was not how I’d envisioned my Monday night.

As you can see by my response to the 3rd support agent I’d been routed to, the whole thing became very triggering.

During this ordeal, I had become unconscious and started to indulge in many of the ego’s petty appetites…

I’m going to tell you, you suck! (Sigh) Okay, glad I got that out.

After a bit more heeing and hawing, I was eventually able to reclaim my awareness.

“Oh, look whose all upset right …

Common Samskaras That Drive Entrepreneurs

by Scott

The ideas below on common samskaras are simply a reflection of my direct experience applying the wisdom of many great teachers to my life. They are not my prescriptions on how others should live their life. I share these thoughts and experiences not to gloat or cast judgment, but rather to feel the joy of creatively expressing myself and to potentially help others on a similar journey.

I wrote recently on the idea of conditioned patterns (samskaras) driving our beliefs and thoughts, which end up driving our lives. That is, until we become aware of them.

The amazing news is once you acknowledge this and begin to work on the patterns, they can be transcended or adapted to be more supportive of your well-being.

How to Release The Patterns That Shape Your Reality

by Scott

The ideas below on releasing patterns are simply a reflection of my direct experience applying the wisdom of many great teachers to my life. They are not my prescriptions on how others should live their life. I share these thoughts and experiences not to gloat or cast judgment, but rather to feel the joy of creatively expressing myself and to potentially help others on a similar journey.

“The task that confronts the spiritual student, devotee, or aspirant is how to actualize conceptual spiritual information into subjective, experiential reality. Thus arises the necessity for application of practices and techniques that evolve progressively into that process whereby the potential becomes the actual.”

-Dr. David Hawkins

The most impactful work I’ve done in my personal evolution …

Practicing Surrender Amidst the Demands of Modern Life

by Scott

The ideas below on practicing surrender are simply a reflection of my direct experience applying the wisdom of many great teachers to my life. They are not my prescriptions on how others should live their life. I share these thoughts and experiences not to gloat or cast judgment, but rather to feel the joy of creatively expressing myself and to potentially help others on a similar journey.

“He consciously moves with the cosmic current. In moving he loses nothing but his limitations. He can take with him in essence all the experiences and understanding that he has gained.”—Collins 

One of the most impactful, yet challenging concepts on the spiritual path is surrender. Similar or equivalent concepts might be called acceptance or detachment …

From Becoming A Somebody to Becoming Nobody

by Scott

The course of my life over the past 3.5 years has shifted in a way I could have never predicted. I have not written much or talked about this publicly, but some of those close to me have been somewhat aware of the changes I’ve went through. It has been a magical journey. One with the highest highs and the lowest lows. I woke up this morning with an energy to write this story down I’m calling becoming nobody, mainly for myself. 

I share all of this not to tell anyone how to live or cast judgment. Rather, just to share my direct experience in order to express myself and maybe help anyone who might be going through something similar. 

Becoming A …
