The Samadhi Chronicles: Volume IX

No more “supposed to’s,” OK, Nick ?
You’re not supposed to work harder, look better, sleep less, sell more, run faster, talk slower, be happier, stay longer, leave earlier, cook, clean, negotiate, settle, start, stop, move, try, win, shake, rattle or roll.
Other people made all that up.
I love you the way you are,
— The Universe

Prosperity is your birthright man! You hold the key to more abundance.

So many people are in status quo style relationships where each person is expected to perform certain situational roles. People don’t realize there are so many amazing unexplored ways to experience love, intimacy, connection, friendship and closeness with birth family as well as chosen family. Ways that do not fit the mainstream mold but are available just by listening to your heart and being open. Don’t be afraid to be the one to recognize an unfulfilling energy dynamic in a relationship and ask, I’m curious if you would be open to exploring another direction in our relationship. Obviously emotional safety is a prerequisite here but there are endless possibilities.

You’re the only one whose judgments of you actually have a real impact on your life.


The weekend was pretty damn cool. It was my first experience at a music festival. Project Earth was the name of the festival. Harmony Park sits on 40acres next to Geneva Lake in southern Minnesota. The two main stages are surrounded by a giant grass field, and half circle of vendors along the out perimeter. The ginormous Oak trees towered over the entire property, providing this lush green canopy.

The moment I walked in, I was greeted with hugs and welcomed home. Home…what is home? I have to say, I haven’t been anywhere where I felt so free to just be myself. Not that I really did anything that seemed different or acted different, but that feeling was there. That light, airy, carefree feeling. Everyone was dressed in a mix of tie dye and medieval. It was super cool to see. You could feel the energy everywhere. The love, the happiness, the acceptance of everyone.

The music was wonderful. Incredible really. It was happy. It was energized. So full of love. No matter where in the park I was, I could feel it. Listening, experiencing the music was a new experience for me. I was in limbo between tears and bliss. My body just swayed, moved to the rhythm of the tunes. Medicine music.

There is no real way to describe this place. I had no idea what to expect but it was an experience I won’t ever forget and will definitely not be the last.

It’s been an awesome couple of days doing only things that make me happy.

Dude, I get it. You like to think, deep. You value clarity and understanding. Just try not to associate your peace with the why because it will make it difficult to stay present in the moment. Yes, you can grow from a situation when you have learned the lesson. Just know and remember that when the lesson isn’t clear, the answers are coming. Just be patient.

Listen man, the victim acts like adversity is bad. To the leader, the warrior, the warrior of light man!… hard times are life’s richest times of growth, opportunity and possibility. It was a rough weekend. You feel as though you failed that test big time. And I suppose you more or less did. Keep wrestling with it man. You are conscious of it. Keep the fuck at it. Sooner or later it will all fall into place… You got this.
