My last blog post was well over a month ago! I am super excited for the month of September and will be leaving India for Australia for 3 months! Ready to absorb Aussie land again :)
Since wrapping filming "Backwater" I have been flat out, doing doing doing and I realized in all my doing that if I'm not being being being than I have missed so many precious moments. So I have consciously chosen to slow it down, relax, enjoy, sleep and 'be' fully where I am. I have noticed that when I am present and aware in each moment things happen that I could not have predicted and the experience is unique and majestic. I become ALIVE.
I read a quote today from a book "The Art Of Peace" - "Each day of human life contains joy and anger, pain and pleasure, darkness and light, growth and decay. Each moment is etched with nature's grand design - do not try to deny or oppose the cosmic order of things."
This absolutely resonates true for me. And I feel that my always ongoing intention is to be fully and completely where I am each and every moment. Obviously at times I am not and the experience feels like something is missing, and I usually think if I were to physically die right not this isn't a very fulfilling way to go... so I may as well be full and complete and just choose that NOW! :)
And here I am in India - a wonderful and also challenging place for me to be. People who have spent time in India may know what I am speaking about - a place that is unpredictable and at times can leave one feeling stripped of all simple luxuries (like toilet paper lol!) which certainly adds to the challenge. India feels like a cleansing place to relinquish all mind/ego based wants, cravings and 'needs'. I am promoting a film "The Man In The Maze" which releases here September 2nd. Here's an article by The Hindustan Times on Katrina Kaif and I... possibly shooting an action film together?!!! Katrina is a Bollywood star and an amazing talented human through song, dance and film.
Backwater" crew on one of our last nights shooting in June. I had so much fun... and absolutely adore these people... and am looking forward to working with the same crew for shooting "Boomerang" in Australia in 2013! Also directed by the talented Christopher Schrack :)

My sister Caitlin came to NY in July and we hung out for 2 weeks :) It was so nice to see her and totally absorb who she has become as a person, I am so proud of the choices she has made and is a very nice human being :)
Caitlin will be back in New York next year as part of crew for "ALIVE New York 2012"! It is a health and well being focused event. I describe it as a mission to unite humanity in a state of ALIVENESS throughout the event. I imagine all the people attending and watching the live streaming from all over the world will be elevated in a natural high, a 'higher vibrational state' as Esther Hicks/Abraham describes, an elevated consciousness :) I am so excited for it, and although the actual event is on June 15th and 16th of 2012 the ALIVE paradigm has already begun. I am a co-founder along with the amazing Josh and Anna Scurry. We are a perfect tripod that are totally in synchronicity with each other. An incredible experience it has been creatively designing the event thus far and building the unique ALIVE team! We have joined forces with the powerful team at Top Shelf Network who will live stream ALIVE globally! Check out www.AliveNewYork.com to see what is created so far and the people who are making this possible. You can also connect with the ride on facebook www.facebook.com/ALIVENewYork or be inspired and come ALIVE on the ALIVE YOUTube channel! :) Enjoy!
