I believe that all truly good work starts from within. I tried to control my outside circumstances for years, and it led me down the dark roads of fear, insecurity, pain, and substance abuse. Why? Because the world is an uncontrollable place, led by the Great Beautiful Artistic hands of the Lord.
I spent this winter on Kaua'i, and survived Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter without taking a single drink! I enjoyed delicious Ayurvedic meals, surfed on Thanksgiving Day and went through plenty of realizations and transformations. It was one of the happiest seasons of my life so far.
