President Abraham Lincoln surrounded himself with leaders who brought strength through diversity and mutual challenge.  He sought advice from people of all capacities - some as strong as himself or even stronger. He had no fear of being crushed or overridden by others, which was a mark of sincere intention. His confidence allowed him to practice the LAW OF EMPOWERMENT, which helped him succeed during a critical time in human history. 

Law of Empowerment

  • Identify & Lift Up Leaders
  • Believe in others and they’ll believe in themselves
  • Give credit to those performing well
  • Share the blame with those performing poorly

I have lost and I have learned and this is what I know: Love yourself. Find forgiveness. Forgive others for harming you. Forgive yourself for harming others. Forgive yourself for harming yourself. Forgive others for harming others. We learn from genuine consideration, understanding and forgiveness. It's an opportunity to grow, resolve conflict, find love & find compasion - bettering your life & others.

You shared your life and experience with us and have left a profound mark on me and many, many others. I hope you are at pease and know that your spirit is very much alive - and we will carry it on with pride. Thank you. You will be missed.

The Complex World of Emotions, Refined

Robert Plutchik's theory of 8 Basic Emotions is a great tool for better understanding our experiences. When we look at ourselves under a microscope, we find the sources of love, hate and everything in between.









Have you ever experienced a strong, vivid emotion, but couldn't put it into words?

There's a reason for that.
The inner part of our brain (Limbic System) contains our emotional receptors, while the later developed brain (Frontal Lobe) contains our communication receptors. We're often brimming with intuition, but have so much trouble putting it into words. It's kinda like... "I just have a feeling, you know?"
