Your Best Life Now

Your Best Life Now

Bio

I'm an Author... Leadership Coach... Counsel to Non-Profits, Faith-based Organizations and Congregations... Adjunct Professor of Communication at the University of Kentucky... Spiritual Teacher... Inspirational and Motivational Speaker.

But not always in this order.

On the university campus, I teach students the Art of Communication. In my public talks, however, I teach leaders the Art of Leading; I teach everyone the Art of Living...so that... when you come to the end...

and, you will come to the end...

You're able to look back on life feeling... Fulfilled... Accomplished... Content, Peaceful, and Happy, too...

Knowing your brief but important journey has made this world a more... Conscious... Compassionate, and... Charitable place.

What could possibly be more important than this?

Jesus and the Buddha

posted by smcswain

Jesus said, “Deny thyself” (Luke 9:23). The Buddha spoke of “Non-self” or “No self.” Both Christians and Buddhists frequently misunderstand what these teachers meant. What Christians Have Been Taught Christians, for example, mistakenly think Jesus was suggesting his followers had […]
