A broader perspective is our greatest need

“You must unlearn what you have learned.”—Yoda A FB memory from two years ago popped up this morning of Taz and me in a photo booth in Stockholm, Sweden. It made me happy to see the two of us clowning around, being goofy. Taz and I had a lot of silly rituals. We watched every […]

Just in: My monkey mind officially announces its theme song

“When you get stuck fighting small battles, it makes you small.”—Hank Green You’ve probably heard it: Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” The all-time favorite line of my monkey mind (the Course calls it my ego) is “I like big but’s and I cannot lie.” Monkey mind doesn’t just LIKE big but’s.
