The Struggle to Find Manhood
Everything inside of you was floodlit, infinite as daybreak. You were boisterous and bold, sensitive and soft, arms open to anything that would hold you. You were a cascade of offerings.

How Our Beliefs Affect Our Bank Accounts
I recently put out a question about where people have blocks around money to my friends on Facebook, and the response was overwhelming. Most people wanted to understand why, despite their best intentions, their wholehearted actions, and even major lifestyle changes, they haven’t been able to truly shift things financially.
