Donald Van de mark with Steve Case
The best people I’ve ever interviewed such as Andy Grove, Bill Bradley and Steve Case, all believe in three fundamental truths about everyone’s life:   1. Everything is changing, always (which is why you must look at every day with fresh eyes) 2. Reality always intrudes 3. Every person can have a profound effect on his/her own destiny.    It’s a belief in what poets call the symmetry of our actions, that the chickens do come home to roost, that what goes around does come around, that Karma is real, that there is always a day of reckoning.  Or as the great...

Pain is a gift and is often essential to our personal evolution. Without it we may travel largely through life unconscious. Those who are interested in an evolution of the self understand that oftentimes pain is essential to waking us up and living life more fully.  Pain invites us to ask really important questions and to spiritually grow up. Pain invites us to evaluate what we believe to be true, important, and hard.  Pain invites us to check our boundaries, our wounds and to change something.  These situations have us mute the outside world for a bit, so that we can...
