Most people are surprised to learn I’m a Zen Buddhist. It’s an odd combination: musician, Marine, CrossFit affiliate owner, and Zen Buddhist.
But truth be told, I don’t think I ever would have been in the position to co-found the Whole Life Challenge without my work with Bill Jordan, the Zen priest who founded and ran the Santa Monica Zen Center for many years.
Bill taught me that change is uncomfortable. A person is supposed to question everything, including the change. “Easy” change isn’t really powerful change.
In the Whole Life Challenge, we call this commitment to questioning our behavior “consciousness.” We want you to wake up to the choices you are making, and question whether they are serving you or not serving your life.
This kind of consciousness can be uncomfortable. In fact, this interview is a little bit uncomfortable. At times it is awkward. It might not sit well at first.
Listen to it anyway.
