Bio

I've had a fortunate life experience so far: stable home life and a college degree without being buried in debt! It's time to give back to the world. I commit myself to being honest with myself & I commit myself to support what is best for all.

Day 438 - Voicing Me

Speaking in an intricate act. Formulation of words to build concepts and understanding is a miraculous feat. Sharing understanding with others is one of the most precious gifts of humanity. I write this blog to share some of the information processing that goes on behind the s... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 437 - Who am I?

Day 436 - Breath Prayer: Introduction & Report 1

What is a Breath Prayer? It's a moment of focused awareness on breathing. Sitting or lying down comfortably, take a minimum of 5 minutes to focus on the body mechanics of breathing: in and out. When and as thoughts creep up, stop them, and return awareness to breathing in a... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 435 - A Fresh Start

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to cling to the past, find comfort and security in what is known, and so fear the creative self-movement in the here and now. I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to NOT trust myself to direct my cre... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 434 - Take Care

The simple task of taking care of oneself is so often overlooked. It's like we're so busy in our lives and in our minds that we don't slow down enough to consider taking good care of our own body. The priorities get all shifted around. Sleep?..nah, rather hang out with friends... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 433 - Communication: Opening up

I'm finding it difficult to open up and share myself more deeply, and I think that's because I've got a lot of nasty thoughts moving around in the deeper dimensions of my mind. "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all," I hear my mother demanding. To purif... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 432 - Strengthening Weakness

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear being weak.

Day 428 - Unconditionally Walking Process Support

Day 427 - Dan Re-Stand

It's been almost 7 years since I started investigating Desteni. It's been just over 4 years since I started my blog and begun walking the Desteni "I" Process. Today, I shaved my head (even closer to the skin than in Day 1!) to restate my standing and participation in process. ... —dantolife.blogspot.com

I forgive myself for accepting and... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 423 - Hiding in a Relationship

There are some consequences playing out for me in my agreement-relationship, wherein I have fallen much more into my relationship tendencies than I have created agreements. In other words, I've been able to hide myself from myself through having another person to focus on and ... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 422 - Self-Agreement

I forgive myself that I have NOT accepted and allowed myself to not go deeper in my relationship to walking process, to investigate the specifics of my application, and cross reference my effort level here with my utmost potential.

Day 421 - Dependent

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to separate myself from the word independent.

Day 420 - Ode to Pot

For some odd years of my life, I have smoked the marijuana. For many of those years, I thought I liked the experience more than I disliked the side effects. Within this last year, I've made the decision to cut it out of my life. It's taken me many years, to figure out how t... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 419 - Back to Basics: Blame

I'll admit, I've been a little naïve, thinking that I've got more of a grasp on the concept of blame at this point. Maybe it's a side effect of increasing awareness. In becoming more aware of it, I figured I'd have a better handle on it in my life. I suppose I can say that I'v... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 418 - Blogging Everyday

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear being judged by others.

...with the Journey to Life blogging! In the summer of 2013, I had the great fortune of traveling to South Africa to live on the Desteni farm for a couple of months. During that time, I felt like I no longer needed to remain consistent with my daily blog because I had proven ... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 416 - Word Critic Bully Character

A little backstory before opening up this character: While working through level 10 of my vocabulary building program, I came across the word infer, and slowed down to read all the definitions for it because I have long had trouble distinguishing between inference and deduc... —dantolife.blogspot.com

I forgive myself that I have been accepting and allowing myself to fear listening to my own voice, to cross reference what I’m saying before sharing it with others.I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to rely on Garbrielle to vet my expression for me, and t... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 414 - Holding Form

This is a very cool concept I've been playing with recently. In our minds, we utilize imagination to generate pictures. When we're thinking about something that we want (or don't want!), the thought can sometimes be paired with a mentally rendered picture. Furthermore, that pi... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 413 - Ability to Respond

Since the beginning of my relationship to the word Responsibility, I've seen it as undesirable and to be avoided when possible. Something clicked in me when I was listening to a recent EQAFE interview (here), and I immediately started writing self-forgiveness. In approximatel... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 412 - Commitment to Speak Daily Self-Forgiveness

Over the past year +, I've been practicing speaking self forgiveness out loud, and I've noticed a pretty significant shift in my process. The main difference is this sense of solid, grounded movement. Like, if you're familiar with writing the self forgiveness out on paper or o... —dantolife.blogspot.com

Day 411 - Anxiety and Fear Lead to Indecision

A great friend just recently shared one of his favorite self forgiveness statements from Bernard in a social group chat: I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that anxiety is the experience of being shit-scared for your own fear - produced fo... —dantolife.blogspot.com
