A. John Lennon and Bob Dylan...the Rolling Stones aren't too far behind!
A. A flower blooming in the garden of Life.
A. Stop looking. Start living.
A. Perfect happiness is Life functioning as its unrestricted, unqualified, natural state. Happiness lies in totally digesting our experiences, not reacting to them.

A. "Life IS an abundant, nurturing force." But it is so true that it is hard to put it more perfectly.
A. I see all things as having a purpose for happening, and even in my struggles (perhaps, especially in those), I've tried not to let regret take root in me. I have felt regret's restriction in allowing Life to function freely. So truly, and thankfully, I have no regrets. The only wish I do have is that I wish I could have more time and more energy to convey my message.
A. Breathing under water...wouldn't that be amazing!
A. My greatest achievements are "The Promise" and the community of family and friends around the world that return my love for them.
A. Being unwilling to say NO! when others request my time...that is very difficult for me.
A. I've been fortunate to study with real Teachers like Krishnamacharya and U.G. Krishnamurti. What I've learned from them, and hopefully what I can awaken and empower in others, is this inherent gift of their own Life which is absolutely perfect, just as it is right now, amidst all the pain and struggles of daily living. That is the best I can do.
A. The President of the USA...so we could change the paradigms of power.

A. Playing guitar or sitar, listening to music, being with family and friends...these inspire me.
A. To be a guitarist and singer with Bob Dylan's band!
A. Sincere questioning. Openness with acceptance that everything is as it should be. Personal responsibility.
A. Porridge or Eggs with potatoes...simple and nourishing.
