For the past few months I’ve been in California. One of the things I love most about being here is how connected I feel to nature.

Often, I sprawl out on my back porch to write, soak in some sun and catch the hummingbirds splashing around our fountain.

Lately, when I walk Kuma, I can hardly go a few hundred feet without stopping to take a gargantuan inhale of the sweet, narcotic smell of Jasmine— which is blooming like crazy right now. Simple moments like these help me stay fully in my body (vs. getting lost in my sometimes crazy-making head!) and strengthen my heart, creativity and intuition.

In our fast-paced world, it’s easy miss the incredible beauty that’s right in front of us. We’re constantly staring at our little screens or completely lost in thought.

My guest today is Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning producer, director and cinematographer who has devoted his entire career to giving us a glimpse of the magic and wonder that surrounds us all. If you feel like you’re speeding through your life, watch this episode.

We also talk about:

  • Finding a way to do work that lights up your heart — even if it goes against logic
  • The power of FOCUS, especially when you’re afraid you’re not choosing the right thing for your  ___________ (career, business, relationship, etc.)
  • Why he believes that the struggle ends when gratitude begins

Louie’s work is stunning and his message is important. As he shares,

“I hope my films inspire and open people’s hearts. Beauty is nature’s tool for survival – we protect what we love. If I can move enough people on an emotional level, we can achieve the shift in consciousness needed to sustain and celebrate life.”

Now, Louie and I would love to hear from you.

What’s your biggest insight, aha or take-away from this episode? What resonated most and what small change can you make as a result? Let me know in the comments below.

Don’t forget —share as much detail as you can. Because thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration and the more concrete and specific your share, the more it can inspire and support someone else.

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they often come across as spam.

Thank you, as always, for reading and watching and sharing. And, thank you for inviting me into your world.

With all my love and appreciation,
