The Samadhi Chronicles: Volume XVII

Being divinely inspired and intuitively led in the moment into right action based on receptivity, connection, fluidity, awareness, compassion, full surrender and presence - works better for me than following a script of performative spirituality and doing “the right” thing.

Here’s the deal man. Things dont always happen how you plan them out. The lesson in that is to keep an open mind. Embrace the positive aspects and possible purpose/lessons in each. Because…why the fuck not? What else you gonna do!?

Believe this dude, you manifest more by letting go than you do by holding on.


Life is energy. Pure creative energy.

I really enjoy yoga classes I struggle in, which is primarily a lot of the C2 classes. They have a way at getting at the deepest core muscles and wear out every muscle in my legs almost to the point of exhaustion. Today’s class was taught by Kelly and we were working towards Eight Angle Pose, Astavakrasana, so the majority of the class we were trying to open up and loosen our hamstrings. I was able to sorta get both sides, definitely stronger with my legs out to my right. Neither of which could I full extend my legs, but it was an awesome challenge and something to work on. One things she said that really resonated was, “Can you be a little more patient? A little more patient with yourself. What are you telling yourself? Can you take smaller steps towards a bigger idea?” I often feel like I have to get it all, and get it right away. I was so happy to hear that.

Dude, your path is being cleared right now. All of the blocks are being removed, You know it, you can feel it. It is on wards and upwards from here. The acceleration is unstoppable. Feel it man. Fucking feel that! The New moon is coming in a few days. Everything is aligning. As those blockages dissipate, you are and will continue to see everything and everyone with greater clarity. You may have been questioning reality, your life, purpose, you know the shit roams in your head. Trust man. Its here.. Feel that gut and how exciting it is. Just stay consistent and keep doing what YOU ARE DOING. Why? Because the thing is, this has been years in the making. This is what you have been working towards… TRUST.

Yo man. Keep that head up and eyes forward. As you can see, you’ve never been given something, been given more than you can handle. You would’ve peeled over and croaked by now if you had. Know what Im sayin’!? It is time to forgive. Forgiveness is freedom. Forgiveness is power. Take yo motha fuckin power back man. Forgive yourself for everything. Yesterday is gone, Even last minute is gone. In that, you must believe that everything, every situation is temporary. Both the good and bad… This should encourage you during the rougher waters and remind you be fully present and enjoy the calmer seas! Believe that every minute, every second is a rebirth and you are responsible for what you hold in your mental and emotional space. YOU. I love you, man. I ma here for you when you are ready. Always and forever. Infinite Love and gratitude…

I think I realized a lot this morning in meditation. Especially in thinking about my kids, especially my son. I’ve seen the way he acts and behaves and I can only image he is carrying my burdens. I am no stranger to his thoughts, and feelings. I feel responsible for the fucked up shit going on in his head because I have not healed it within myself. I think that we as humans carry the weight of our parents. When we become aware of their traumas, and what they carry, then realize it in ourselves, it makes sense then that would be passed down to our children as well through various control dramas. So perhaps my purpose is to heal myself, and to show him how to heal so that he doesn’t carry the weight of his father, his grandfathers, his ancestors. Perhaps he is my purpose. I am not my father. I am not his mistakes. I am not my mother, nor her mistakes. But I am both my mother and my father. I get it now. Or I get what I get, right now. Fucking hell this ain’t easy.

Man, chill the fuck out. All of the disappointments, challenges, struggles, will all make sense soon. I know you can feel it coming. Its right around the corner and its going to come fast. You will be thankful you didn’t run. You have incredible energy and its felt by those who meet you. When you stand up and take action, it motivates those around you. While you may not realize it, you are inspiring others. Give it your all.


Wild, huh, Nick, how the entirety of living deliberately can be summed up in just three words?
Thoughts become things.
Of course, beliefs are important too, but your thoughts can change what you believe.
And words are important, they’re your thoughts that will become things the soonest.
And taking action is absolutely critical, because it alone connects the dots.

— Spread the word, The Universe.

And the day has come, when the risk to remain tight in a bud is so much more painful than the risk it is taking to blossom.

Man… Everything you have been putting your energy into is picking up speed. You know what that means,.. the momentum is building. Pay attention to the small victories. As you your gratitude grows, the wins will mount and continue to build in size. Listen man, you have worked for them. Every single one of them. You deserve it. Come back and talk to man. I know you have a lot to spill out. I love you.


Knowing when I need to rest shows a huge amount of understanding of myself, respect for my body, and allows my practice to support me continually.

I know there have been tough times. But there you haven’t been thrown anything you haven’t been able to handle. I am proud of you for not giving up. Some how in even the darkest of times you have been able to shine bright with optimism. You;ll see soon it was worth it. You are resilient man. A true example set. Stay true. I love you.


Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.

Its a new month man. Believe in the good things coming. I know sometimes you feel unworthy, not quite good enough. But remember you have always been enough, exactly how you are. You are where you are supposed to be at exactly the right time. Just believe things are beginning to unfold, unfold way they are supposed to. It feels good doesn’t it? Overcoming that fear and doubt. They ain’t got nothin over you man. You know it. I believe in you!
