I’m Good…

I was talking to a friend about eightstep me. The conversation naturally shifted over a few of the topics I’ve covered in my blog posts, like motivation and fulfillment, growth and stagnation, and paradoxical self-reference. They seemed confused about the concept of life coaching in general. At one point they said that they didn’t see

Letting Go With Both Hands

A lot has happened in the 5 months since I wrote “To Let Go” — a post in which I used my experience at a Trump rally to explain my feelings about leaving graduate school.  Here’s a quick recap of some notable events in my life since then: Trump became the president I moved out of my

Whatever

“Whatever” is often thought of as an expression of not caring. But really, the phrase ‘whatever’ indicates a conceptual sore spot. It’s like a bright neon sign that the topic, idea, or thought at hand is something you’d rather avoid. Much like discomfort  and vulnerability, this innate desire to avoid the feeling makes us quite bad at

Ups and Downs: Hierarchy and Heterarchy

As a continuation of my Ups and Downs series of posts I’ll be diving into the pyramid known as “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.” In this hierarchy we see that our physiological requirements, like food, water, and shelter are at the bottom of the pyramid. As we rise up the hierarchy we begin to move away from

Ups and Downs: An Introduction

So far in my writings I’ve been examining topics that display symmetry between the left and right arms of the infinity symbol: logic and emotion, fulfillment and motivation, self and reflection. But more often than not, infinity is an imprecise representation of the dualistic concepts we encounter in daily life, since left and right as portrayed in

I’ve discovered a truth lately (there’s really just one Truth, but there are many ‘true’ projections of this Truth). People seem to think that it has no basis in “reality,” but in my opinion it is the basis of reality. Here it is: anything and everything anyone ever says is actually about themselves. If this is an

Motivation and Fulfillment

Some of us are quite sure of our uniqueness, while others are quite sure that nothing differentiates them from the crowd. But whatever you feel about yourself the vast majority of people I survey think that their feelings and experiences are inherently different from any and all other humans and beings. Try it yourself —

Reflection

There are an infinite number of ways to describe the process of eightstep me. In short, it is witness of the self, affirmation of me, and vision of the true nature of subjectivity. It unlocks universally accessible superpowers because it is an attempt to overcome a universally shared weakness: We are entirely and completely incapable of witnessing our ‘self.’  This is a

I’ve written at length about left and right, the whole and the parts, logic and emotion. While I haven’t precisely described the process behind eightstep me, or how to balance these two aspects of reality, if you really want the details or the bigger picture let’s set up a coaching session 🙂 However, I would like to write about
