Balancing Act

I've been thinking a lot about balance lately. I keep catching myself treating it like a state, a way that things can be: "Everything is in balance." It's an alluring fantasy, especially when I'm stressed because I can look forward to some future where I've done all the work and things are in balance and the stress is all gone.

Except in the real, dynamic world, balance doesn't work that way. Balance is not a state of being. Balance is an activity. When you walk on a tightrope, you are never balanced; you are always balancing.

Maybe this seems obvious to you, intellectually, like saying "life's a journey, not a destination." But I always catch myself treating balance like it's a state, and I bet you do, too.

What motivates your actions? When something seems out of balance, and you are working to change it, is your motivation the underlying itch of "Just this last thing..."? I do this all the time. At work I'll see a situation that is on fire and I'll start working to put that fire out. Nothing wrong with that. But if I meditate a little bit to really see my underlying feelings, I see impatience, aggravation, and a sense of reaching, stretching out and grasping at some imaginary future where this fire is out and I can finally rest. Deep down there's a part of me that is looking forward to everything being balanced so I can take a deep breath and exhale and all the tension will leave my body and I'll finally be at peace.

Bulletproof Coffee

On The High Tech Hobo

I filmed this Bulletproof Coffee tutorial video while hanging out in SoCal with the Hipster Gypsies; I always make Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast and thought I would try to convert the Gypsies...needless to say, they were fans! When Christian suggested we record a how-to video, I was more than happy to oblige and share my technique for my favorite daily kickstart to the day!

So, for those of you who don't know...you may be asking — what is Bulletproof Coffee?

Bulletproof Coffee is the most delicious, healthiest, and best way to start your day that I have found. I have my mug of Bulletproof Coffee every morning for breakfast; it keeps me full for the first half of the day, while providing ample energy as well as a huge cognitive boost. Your body is not hungry as you have ample calories from healthy fats, yet your body also reaps the benefits of being in a fasted state (such as autophagy and weight loss) because there are no carbohydrates or protein in the drink; it jumpstarts your metabolism and helps teach your body to burn fat as the primary fuel source.

Simply, Bulletproof Coffee is made with only 3 ingredients:
