When It is Time


Kanuga 2017

It was the summer of 1996 and I was living in Central Square, in Cambridge MA. 

I’d moved up there the year before to become a street/subway musician, and that was easy enough to do, once I overcame the fear.(which is another entirely different story) 

In the mornings, I’d work at the coffee shop down the street from my apartment. And then in the afternoon/evenings I’d go play music in Harvard Square, a subway train station, or a gig. 

The goal was simply to be playing somewhere every day.  read more

Instant Gratification NOW!


Kyle Talk KanugaThe best possible thing that you can do is to have a clearly stated goal or intention.

You state what you want, and then you chart yourself a course for getting there.

You make a plan.

And then as you go along, you can see each step of the way that you are getting closer to the goal.

I have been using this practice for years now, and being able to look at my plan and see where I have made progress, and also the next steps along the way, really helps.

You see, there was this day in my life when I just sort of “woke up,” and everything was wrong. Nothing in my life had turned out the way I had wanted it to. read more

Demonstrating Prosperity


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

I made a lot of plans for this year.

There were goals and intentions with my Spirit Ministries, goals and intentions with school, also with vacation and retreat time.

It didn’t seem real or possible. There were too many questions and too many things that needed to go just right.

But I wrote it all down on the calendar and affirmed, “It already is!”

My regular readers know that Heather and I lost a very dear friend at the first of the year. It was sudden and unexpected.

Then we got stiffed in a major way by a contractor. read more

The “Useful”


There is a great story about these two guys who cross the river in a canoe. 

When they get to the other side they are so happy to have gotten across safely. They are very grateful for the canoe, and one of them says to the other, “Boy, if it wasn’t for this wonderful canoe, we never would have made it here!” 

“Yes.” his friend agreed. “If it wasn’t for this canoe, we would still be back over there.” 

The two men decided that they couldn’t just leave the canoe, so they decided to carry it with them into town.  read more

Kyle Talk on the Law of Attraction


Outlandish story after outlandish story, I can tell them for hours.

Those situations where it came to pass in which I needed something, and it magically appeared before me. Money, places to stay, transportation, even ideas have come to me right when needed.

I always have everything I need.

The Universal Law of Attraction is always there, and it is always working in our lives, even though we may not notice. It is just as absolute in our lives as the Law of Gravity, which we may also not notice.

We can use these Laws to our favor, simply by understanding how they work. read more

Should I? Or Should I Not?


The other day someone asked me, “How am I supposed to know when to let it go, or when to keep trying?”

On one hand we are told, “Don’t give up before the miracle happens!” but on the other hand we are told, “Fool me once and it is on you. Fool me twice and it is on me.”

Many of us are also familiar with the definition of insanity, which is “doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results.”

I laughed.

Not a mean spirited laugh but more like an, “I wish I could answer that for you” laugh. read more

The Universe is Pleased When…


kyle 4I’ve been doing a great deal of journaling lately.

Today, the last sentence was, “God would be pleased if I was pleased.”

It’s as simple as that. All we have to do is to be pleased. All we have to do is develop an “attitude of gratitude.”  All we have to do is to have no worries.

All we have to do is have self-esteem. To have strength and confidence that if we work in accordance with the Universal Laws, we can create life to be the way we want it to be.

We are told in the bible that those that “have”, will have more. While those that “don’t have” will have less. read more

To Let Go Or Not To Let Go (part 2)


IMG_2356I used to have lots of boundaries. If you did anything I didn’t want you to do, or anything I didn’t agree with, then you were crossing my boundaries. I was a completely terrified person who didn’t really know that he was angry. Nor did I know that my “tough guy” act was all just a ploy to cover up my terror.

So there were lots of rules that people had to abide by at all times, or risk my wrath.

I used to be terribly codependent too. The outer world controlled me, so it only made sense that when I would get in to a relationship, it would dictate me as well. It was a pretty terrible life, all the time trying to get everyone in line the way I needed them to be in order for me to be okay. read more

One Bite At A Time


elephany kilimanjaroThe title of this blog is actually the answer to the question, “How do you eat an elephant?”

That is correct, “One bite at a time.” Of course you know how I love elephants, so please, no elephant eating around here!

But you get it. Elephants are huge. They weigh tons. If you were faced with this task of eating an elephant, it would have to be one bite at a time.

You get a diploma by taking one class or one assignment at a time. You stay clean and sober, by not using or drinking one day at a time. You write a book by writing one word at a time or one paragraph at a time. You walk a long journey by taking one step at a time. read more

Define It and Build It (part 4)

From Hanlon Mountain

Are your dreams too big?

Last weekend I had the opportunity to play music for the new Center for Spiritual Living here in Savannah. Reverend Wesley Kramer gave a great message that contained the story of a man named Nicholas Evans.

Nicholas received an assignment one day in school, which was to write a paper on his “dream life”, which he promptly did.

It came back to him with an “F” written on it, along with a note that read something like, “This paper was supposed to be realistic!”

He approached his teacher concerning his grade. The teacher accused him of being too outlandish and suggested that Nicholas come up with something a little more down to earth. The teacher did tell him that he could re-write the paper and try again if he so chose to. read more
