Changing the Shape of Energy – Blog Series 1, Number 2

By danoneill | Bible Hacks Blog

A man’s wisdom makes his face shine,

And the hardness of his face is changed.

Ecclesiastes 8:1

Objective:  Creating your own personal energy and atmosphere

Timeline:40 days

Tools:

  • Hydration
  • Meditation
  • Nature

I have spent some time in the book of Ecclesiastes over the years. It’s such a paradox as it appears the Author is basically saying to start off with screw life. The first chapter is not uplifting and cheery. That is where the paradox comes in though; the wisdom to deal with what that entire first chapter brings forth is contained in the Teacher’s searching. Ah yes searching, what I have discovered is that God will pursue us continually; we in turn must be willing to search for Him everywhere, and in all circumstances. It can be easy to become comfortable when life is going well and fall away from pursuing God in all situations and circumstances. It’s not always easy to seek God first, but it is most rewarding.

Consider Your Ways

Objective: Discovering the power of obedience to God in our lives

Time line: 40 days

Tools:

  • Mindset
  • Prayer
  • Scripture
  • Your Voice

Gotta love how scripture can smack you in the face. The whole Book of Haggai really comes down to being obedient or being disobedient. Just when you thought no one was looking. In my book ‘Nobody Can Take It Away From You’ I talk about how the word obedient has become bad. Yeah it’s one of those words we don’t like to utter because it seems on the surface that we are giving our freedom or power away.

The Two Biggest Stumbling Blocks in Communication

By danoneill | Uncategorized

Recently I came to the realization the the habits in communication people create over their lifetime can be simply impenetrable. They can encompass a person’s entire life. They dictate their decisions, loyalties, and most definitely their judgments.  The inability to communicate effectively can not only disrupt relationships, but end them.  Here are a couple ways this can happen:

New Year’s Resolutions are Bullshit

By danoneill | Uncategorized

Pretty harsh tile for this article. But there is reality and then there is fantasy. Look I’m not saying you can’t do it, it is possible. From a statistical standpoint, it rarely happens. According to a Forbes.com article from 2013, only 8% of people actually achieve their resolutions. After only two weeks 33% have already stopped following their resolution. So why don’t they work? Because they are based on a calendar and hope. Base those things on hardcore exuberance with a plan and watch the results you want, come to fruition.

Running With the Moose – Riding a Spin Bike for 24 Hours.

By danoneill | Uncategorized

I get asked one question often when I am doing my 24 Hour Ride for the Kids With Cancer Society. How do you prepare for that? I like to jokingly say, “I watched a video!” That’s what you do today right? Anyway back to the topic. I will preface my answer with a recent experience. I saw a Moose running through a field on a quiet morning and watched it lumber through the snow. I thought to myself, that’s what I look like when I run, chuckle. In many Native North American beliefs the Moose represents self-esteem and the magic of life and death. It stands for the expression of joy and accomplishment. I adopted the Moose as my Spirit animal that day.

I Am

By danoneill | Uncategorized

I am that I am. Such a powerful way to frame who and what you are. I am statements own the very energy of your Vision and move the needle. By stating “I am” you are switching from passive energy to a living document of who you are and how your pursuing life. Its a living document because you are claiming your power.

Forging

By danoneill | Uncategorized

In life you are either forging your way, your lifestyle, and your pursuit or society is doing it for you. It’s weird how much we do life on autopilot, walking through daily living in habitual patterns and habits. Going through the motions and not seeing the limitations we set on ourselves.

Defining Epic

By danoneill | Uncategorized

Who defines what epic is? Is it a skewed perception of what is epic because of high profile events and media coverage? Is epic one of those things we judge based on the filters we see the world through? It certainly can be and usually is. We play small in our own minds because we see things others are doing and downplay our epic versus what we see theirs as.

Dancing With the Moment

By danoneill | Uncategorized

After the tragic collision the Humboldt Broncos had I was reeling for a few days. It just made no sense that so many lives were lost. First of all my prayers, and thoughts go out to every parent, family member, friend, girlfriend, billet, or anyone who knew an individual who passed. I wasn’t sure how to write this in terms that makes sense. But I know it made me realize how valuable each moment is. It also made me realize that I don’t fully embrace every moment I live. Too often I am focusing on the long range goals I have and out there on the hoped for horizon. I was meditating on this when the following popped into my mind, ‘Dance with each moment’ of your life. Dancing is a metaphor here for being present in every moment.

Consider Your Ways

By danoneill | Uncategorized

What is it worth to you? The choice between success and not pursuing success is a small one. The actions required are minimal. The attention you need doesn’t have to be inherited. The skills are within your reach. And the thing that will have you moving the needle is when you consider your ways.
