How To Live Authentically



A PREMISE – a filter through which we view our lives. This week I may see everything through the filter of an over-packed schedule. Next month I may view my life through the filter of being unemployed, or the coming holidays, or worthlessness.

This taints my experience by limiting my perception of my own sign-posts and Truths. It’s my sign-posts, or Guidance, that knows the route to the life of my dreams. I’m trying to go that way.

What would it be like to experience life directly, with out the filter of thought?

What’ll happen is I’ll have a DIRECT CONNECTION. So what does that mean? It means I’ll have an AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE.




A DIRECT CONNECTION is to experience your life without the filter of thought.

An AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE is the deliciousness you came  here for.

If your mind immediately thought about all the wonderfully enhanced, direct-connection encounters you could have with your heart’s desire, then good on you. If you immediately thought about all the crap that makes you want to run and hide, fear not.

In the space of an AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE, you’d be present. You’d be outside of any story, with unconditional acceptance. It would be natural, easy, automatic. In this space of Consciousness, there is no pain and suffering. You’d have to fall back into a mental thought, opinion, judgement, evaluation, or story to experience pain and suffering. You’re not trying to go that way.

So what’s a thinking mind to do?….



F – FLOW your emotions.


E – Be the EYEWITNESS to thought.

L – Practice LUCIDITY, or being present in the moment outside of unnecessary thought.


FUEL Your Life is a four-point living meditation, woven into the fabric of my everyday life. It is an empowerment designed to support me in accessing an Authentic life experience. It’s more than just additional self-growth, or spiritual information, because these are concepts that I can actually live. It is a practice based on four simple truths, and I can do it anywhere, at anytime. Literally. No matter where I am, if my thinking mind is there, I can do it.

Feel free to give it a whirl.
