Frank Lloyd Wright Dejavu

Lewis "Spring" house Tallahassee by Frank Lloyd Wright

I am on the road now and visiting the town I grew up in, Tallahassee. Today with Billy Gwynn I am standing in front of the Lewis house here in Tallahassee. It is abandoned and in total disrepair. How sad. Billy  and I grew up together and had the privilege of building an original Frank Lloyd Wright designed home. We built it in Kamuela on the Island of Hawaii and it gave me a wonderful adventure, not one so much of ownership, but of the fascinating  people and experiences surrounding this process. I write about the entire process in “How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking.”

Today there is a bit of sadness in seeing this great work of art in such a state. I read about now how collectable art is now selling for huge sums and yet the art form of our greatest architects sometimes just languishes. It is one of the great disconnects. Perhaps because it is an art form that requires constant attention, that requirement alone, diminishes all value beyond the utilitarian aspects.

From the ashes a “Pheonix” often rises. I ponder on what could happen here.

Everyone Should Read This Interview

Every once in awhile whether on the net, seeing a film, reading a book or magazine or simply having the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time we get a truly impactful piece of information.

This interview with Tony Robbins is one of those. Tony has mastered a good many endeavors in life and has been paid the really big bucks as a life coach. In these few paragraphs Tony seems to sum up a life time of experiences and the essence of what he believes really matters.

I have been writing about manifestation, intuition and synchronicities as thinking patterns. My stockbroker called me today and said “Hey I have just read this great blog in the Huffington Post on an interview with Tony Robbins.” I said, “What interesting timing, I am reading it right now.”  When I finished reading it I felt I needed to post simply urging people to read it.

Here are just a sample of Tony’s comments:

“Life supports what supports more of life.”

“A sense of service makes all else disappear.”

“What ever you give your brain to answer you will get an answer.”

“What makes people feel alive is a life of meaning. Pleasure is in the body. Happiness is in the mind.”
