- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel -

Remember that there is a meaning beyond absurdity.
Know that every deed counts, that every word is power.
Above all, remember that you must build your life as if it were a work of art.

We Will Teach Them To Love

By Jared | Nov 5, 2015

I love to learn. As an entrepreneur, consultant and activist, I research and study relentlessly. I truly find great joy in the process. I’m a lifelong world traveler and explorer, constantly studying culture, humanity, science and spirituality. It’s not just my work. It’s not part of a graduate program. It’s a lifestyle I’ve chosen deliberately.…

Formless: Gratitude for Wayne Dyer

By Jared | Sep 3, 2015

As a young child, I remember seeing a copy of “Your Erroneous Zones” on the coffee table in our living room. I remember wondering what that big word meant and who that crazy looking guy was on the cover. I’ve heard Wayne Dyer’s name spoken amongst my friends and family for most of my life.…

The Sacred Flow of Life

By Jared | Aug 9, 2015

In July of 2014, after almost ten years of living in East Africa between Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya, we decided it was time to reevaluate our geographic location. Africa has been a prevalent aspect of my life since I was just a child, and after a decade of living and working there, it has become…

Naïve, Irrational Zealot

By Jared | Jul 29, 2015

By the age of eight, I was well on my way to becoming an activist. It was 1985 and “We Are The World” was flooding the MTV airwaves that I was so enthralled with at the time. My heroes were all in the lineup, and they were determined to end the famine in Ethiopia. Even…

Vulnerable and Interconnected

By Jared | Jul 18, 2015

I have always been intrigued, and often mesmerized by the profundity of the eye, not only in humans, but in animals as well. The concept of the eyes being a window into the soul may be cliché, but that does not diminish its validity. In every moment that I allowed myself, or even forced myself,…

These Divine, Limitless Souls Are Not Our Own

By Jared | May 21, 2015

THESE DIVINE, LIMITLESS SOULS ARE NOT OUR OWN If one is merely attempting to make another person follow their orders, it makes sense to keep that person under their control and to foster a controllable environment. If the environment or individual cannot easily be controlled, it is more of a fight to get them to…

My Wellbeing is a Humanitarian Act

By Jared | May 19, 2015

Until recently, my life has been focused so acutely on humanitarian efforts that, at times, I lost a bit of my own humanity along the way. Even as a child, I was strongly compelled to stand up for the oppressed. I’ve always followed my heart, which told me to serve others to the best of…

Example is the Greatest Teacher

By Jared | Apr 28, 2015

We have very few rules in our family. We call it our “way”, like Bushido is to the Samurai. It’s a practice based on our ethos, rather than a set of rules to adhere to. Rules serve no purpose on the path to enlightenment or self actualization. My wife and I are deliberate in all…

The Space of Possibility

By Jared | Apr 7, 2015

We like to plan things. We analyze and strategize until it’s safe enough, comfortable enough, responsible enough and socially acceptable. Finally, we have the perfect plan. Then we run it by friends and gauge their reaction. If all goes well, we execute. As a brand developer and activist, I’m constantly analyzing and searching for root…
