Leftover

Hey all,

Even though the thought of having leftovers seems to have a negative connotation, for most dishes leftovers seem to taste better in my opinion. Maybe it is because the flavor settled or maybe I didn't appreciate the flavor the first time. I'm starting to look at life that way. How many of us would risk it all to find our authentic selves? Meaning how many would give up our current way of life, the money, cars, and job for a chance to discover ourselves? How many would be satisfied with what is leftover after you get rid of glamour around stuff.

It can be difficult to grasp but, we are not our money, we are not the stuff we accumulated, we are not our jobs. We were probably much happier before we accumulated that stuff we thought would enhance our lives and our identity.

It took me a while to figure out that none of that stuff truly made me happy. Instead of being happy with myself I wanted what others had. Now, I am on a spiritual journey to help others through my purpose,  and as I continue to shed the money. my stuff, and ego. I am learning that what is leftover (my true self) is much better than the other versions of me.

Uncomfortable

Uncomfortable
I’ve finally hit unfamiliar territory this year. At first, I was super excited. All of my dreams aligned. I traveled to South America with an amazing person, started my own company with my twin and accepted an opportunity to go overseas for a year. My South America trip has recently ended and all that excitement turned into a little fear. That fear was the uneasiness of the sacrifices I would have to make in order to continue to align with my goals. Fast forward to today and this is only my 3rd day of what feels like a never-ending state of being uncomfortable.  I get to travel for 1 whole year to 12 different cities across 4 different continents.  I get to work on creating a company with my brother with few distractions and almost unlimited flexibility.  So I gave up my home because in 3 months I’m out of the country for a year. I gave up my car, because I wouldn’t be able to drive it and why make payments on a car that I can’t drive. I had a hard time giving the …

Vision

Hello all,

We all are familiar with vision, in the since of seeing something that will happen in the future. I'm talking about the vision we see when we think about the possibilities in the future. While we at Twinlightenment are creating our vision, we tend to create more ripples, possibilities, or visions for our future. This is probably the second most exciting part of our journey. The most exciting part of the journey is having an idea and bringing something from your mind into physical existence in this world. If you are able to successfully do that, than you can do anything. We have produced two books, 60 songs and have set up our coaching programs and our presence on several social media platforms. Even though we are racing to see the first dollar, I feel like we have already received maximum value through what we have learned and produced on our journey. Good luck, to any of you on realizing your vision on your journey, and if you have time check us out on all of our platf…

Can We Pull it Off?

Hello all,

This is the Journal of Twinlightenment. This the only place where you will get our deep real-time thoughts.

  Currently, we are building a communications empire, however, we are just getting started. It may sound like a crazy idea but I believe the crazy people are responsible for most of our major advance in society. Who would believe that the Wright brothers could build a flying machine, or that a man could walk on the moon, or that civil disobedience could change the laws in our country?

  The way I see it, I am less crazy than my ancestors because I have access to more opportunity than they could have imagined.

  Our goal is to "Inspire creative people to utilize their imagination to design and manage their lives in the 21st century". Our goal is to write, speak, coach, and utilize social media to get this message out. We don't want to just make money, we want to leave our footprint in history. We want our names amongst the great leaders and inventors in …
