What Makes Your Story Great (Or: My “Elixir of Life” Is Finally Revealed)

What Makes Your Story Great (Or: My “Elixir of Life” Is Finally Revealed)

February 19, 2018

[Lights up, curtain parts. On the theater stage we see a professors office. Ollin is sitting behind his desk, wearing his beige vest and red sneakers. He is talking with The Reader who is sitting directly across from him. The Reader notices a script labeled “Backwardz” that has been tossed in the trash bin, slightly charred, as if someone had attempted to burn it. The orchestra goes silent. Ollin begins:] In his book, A Hero With A Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell says that, at the end of every heroes journey in every mythological tale in human history, the hero of the story must return with his “Elixir of Life” to share with the community–so that the hero’s story can reach its full conclusion. [Ollin coughs and presents to The Reader a small, pink cockatoo feather. He continues:] The Elixir is some form of potion, relic, or scroll that the hero could only acquire from going on his adventure. The Elixir […]

The Law of Power

The Law of Power

February 12, 2018

(Editors note: And then there were three: three more blog posts to go guys – anyone experiencing separation anxiety yet? The Final Blog Post will appear February 26th, 2018.) ____ When I was born, my mother had to be given a Cesarean section, because I was way too big to come out the normal way. Ever since then, I have been coming out in awkward and strange ways all my life. I came out as a gay, self-identified Chicano in college, as a writer after college, and as a medium who speaks with guardian angels before I turned 30. Every time I had discovered a new layer of who I was, I had a choice: a choice between standing in my power or not. I could have let fear control my life, I could have worried about what people would think about me, I could have let all those people who left me or judged me for who I was, […]

What Is Karma? (And How Do I Heal It?)

What Is Karma? (And How Do I Heal It?)

February 5, 2018

For nearly eight years we’ve talked about karma, about giving and receiving, about relationships, family, friends and yes, networking with strangers. Today, I’d like to review what we’ve learned about community over the years and how we can finally heal the karma we’ve accrued–whether it’s in this lifetime, or beyond. Reaching Out One of the first lessons I learned on Courage 2 Create, and it was an important one, was to be humble and ask for help when I needed it. If you recall, I cited a study that said that people who had a community around them–family, friends, neighbors–had less health problems than those who went it alone. We, humans, need connection. We can live without it, but we have no life without it. Some of the ongoing mantras of Courage 2 Create have been “reach out if you need help,” “share your story,” “connect with someone to help release any pent up emotions.” Don’t go it alone. I […]
