A couple mornings ago I found myself riding a bicycle down a mountain road in Boulder, Colorado. Hot air balloons hung over green mountains against a deep blue sky. Deer followed me with their eyes.
The maniacal grin on my grill shouted, “Whutup, DEER?!?! I’m on a f*cking BIKE! In Boulder, Colorado!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!!“
In this exhilarating moment my entire life caught the tailwind.
I was hugely blessed to consciously recognize this event passing through.
Our Lens is built from the go-to filters we choose throughout our lives, and in these moments of rapture our physical experience merges with it.
Hence, the balloons, and the sky, and the deer. We can become fully present on a cinematic scale, realizing our place within all of it. Talk about perspective. Talk about putting your petty, First World problems into context.
The day was already an ass-kicking win by 7:00 AM MST. Better yet, because I had caught my stride, many more such moments followed throughout the day and the weekend.
FACT: If you maintain and enhance your Lens,
you will experience more
power-moments throughout your day and your life.
We tend to freak the hell out in the face of chaos or adversity. There will be times when we are under attack.In the consistent practice of cultivating a strong, resilient, and limitless lens we are hedging our bets against infiltration from the external world.
In the testing of our lens, our focus improves.

Thank the South for reminding you where true North is.
Trusting your Lens.
In that moment on the mountain I was physically alone, yet I carried my family with me. I was heading to a meet up with a new family of friends, mentors, and teachers. The rush of adrenaline, gratitude, and excitement brought my life into full focus.
It was a state of complete connection to everyone, and everything. I was the luckiest biker on Earth. In these moments we catch up with the Goodness we’ve been gently curating for years, if not lifetimes.
