The Board of Mis-Directors - our internal dialogue, inner critic, etc. - takes us in all sorts of unproductive directions.  And they're just plain mean!  Yet, they are surprisingly, disturbingly effective at directing the course of our lives.

What to do about these guys?

Raging Magma Life:
The Perpetual Moment of Intentional Creation

Every moment is precious.  Every experience we have, every choice we make, every attitude we adopt, every interaction we have - each is a moment of creation. What are we going to create? 

A Raging Magma Life is a life in which we - to the best of our ability - live in that fiery, often chaotic perpetual moment of intentional creation.

Truth, Passion, Beauty

We feel most alive when we are living in that exact place.  And that doesn’t have to be whitewater rafting or approaching the top of Mt. Everest.  It can be doing a job that we love and excel at, finding success in a collaborative endeavor, experiencing a moment of strong connection with our partner, having a good laugh, learning something new, or just sitting down for a rejuvenating rest. 

What Is a Raging Magma Life?

What if we devoted ourselves to the glorious - and practical - challenge of living our heart's desires?

What if?

Our inner dreams and passions, our visions, our bottom lines - these are the things which light a fire in us!  When they're flamed on, we become super heroes, able to scale the tallest building, face the greatest challenges, create the possible amidst impossible odds.  That's power!

Living a Raging Magma Life is waking up each day with a willingness to live in, with and through that power. 

Magma is the source from which new landscapes are formed, literally creating the ground we walk upon.  In us, it is our ability to change our circumstances, to form our world.  And rage?  Rage is that instant searing energy that knows what matters, what's really important, and will not be fooled and will not surrender.  We're not talking about a brooding anger kind of thing - rage in its highest form is a clear, clean energy that says, "Yes.  This is a good day to die.  I see what needs to be done and there is no doubt in me about doing it."  In other words - enough of this getting by just to get by.  Let's do something here!

Living a Raging Magma Life is seeing the injustice of how we have denied ourselves - that is, denied who we are in our deepest, purest place - and turning that around.

It's letting our rage show us where we have boxed ourselves in, sabotaged our own intent, and indefinitely put off that which we need and desire.  It's knowing that life is abundant and compassionate, knowing that we have the unlimited power of creation within us. 

It's being willing to stop acting like life is a cruel joke, taunting us with that which we cannot be or have, and instead to take on the glorious challenge of pursuing our heart's desires.  If we are capable of perceiving it, we are capable of creating it. 

It's being willing to do the work. It's being willing to risk failure - and success. It is knowing that, through living, we are, in every moment, creating ourselves.

Living a Raging Magma Life is the conviction that our lives are worth living - in all their brilliance, quirkiness, curiosity, meaning, and possibility.
