All We Are Is Dust In The Wind

Like many of you, I’ve often wondered… “Are we alone in this universe?”.

My hunch has always been no. Surely there’s something, or someone else out there. 2 days ago, I saw this video of a super-high resolution image of Andromeda from the Hubble telescope. My hunch in now about one million times stronger.

Check out the video and see for yourself how earth is simply nothing more than dust in the wind…

The Profit Moffatt Show Is Now On iTunes

I’m stoked to announce that my new Profit Moffatt Show is officially released on iTunes as of yesterday. It will probably take a couple more days for it to be visible in the marketplace but you can now listen to the show at http://www.profitmoffattshow.com

I’d be super hyped if you’d be willing to subscribe to the podcast and rate & leave feedback for me. Every little bit helps and encourages me to keep publishing more. The Profit Moffatt Show

It looks like I’ll publish a new episode every Tuesday. The format of the show is obviously focused on marketing, but we tend to talk about a lot of personal stuff instead of boring people with SEO terms and stuff like that on each show.

Again, you can listen in at http://www.profitmoffattshow.com

Cheers

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Ever heard of Lou Piniella Disease? Yeah, me either. But I figured I’d have fun with it anyways.

My buddy Ori Bengal tagged me to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise money for ALS aka Lou Gehrig’s disease. To be honest, I didn’t want to do it but I’m a good sport and it’s for a good cause.

It’s also a freaking stellar example of how to get a trend to go viral. Can you think of any ways to do something similar to bring attention to a cause your passionate about?

Anyhow, you can donate any amount you can afford at http://www.als.org

Demo Day At Sandy Ridge Trail System

Today I decided to finally check out the Sandy Ridge Trail System right by my house. It’s kind of hard for me to believe that I’ve been back home for 10 months and still haven’t rallied this spot.

I got my bike fixed the other day and decided to finally give it a try. And today was my lucky day because it was Demo Day with a few bike companies offering loaner bikes. I decided to demo the Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon bike. The thing was a beast! I’ve never ridden anything like it and now I’m going to have a hard time going back to my own bike.

I get the feeling my bank account is about to be $5000 lighter very soon. Anyhow, I strapped on a Go Pro camera and filmed my first ride down the trail called “Hide and Seek”.

Life Is One Big Party

So, I woke up totally hungover this morning.

I’ve been on this clean and sober streak for 24 straight days with the goal of attaining one clean year. But this morning was quite the game changer.

Thankfully I wasn’t puking, didn’t have a raging headache, and the idea of Hair Of The Dog wasn’t even remotely a option. pool_party_in_a_bathtub_by_asiapasek-d6ohboj

This hangover was like something I’ve never felt before.

It all started yesterday morning the moment I awoke. I groggily read an email that captivated me in a way that no email ever had. At first I couldn’t even believe what I was reading. I kept thinking “Is this real life? Am I still dreaming?”.

The timeliness of the email was insane.

The links I followed within the email were even more crazy.

What happened next BLEW MY MIND!

Next thing I know I’m in a comedy club (one of the ripest places for getting drunk) with the author of said email. I was excited to have a great time full of laughs and smiles.

But the laughs were few and far in between. The suicide, self loathing and depression jokes were massively abundant.

FUCK, this is not very fun” is all I could think. Is this what it’s like being sober in a comedy club? Would a few beers make these people funny? These were a few thoughts wandering in my mind.

After 90 minutes (it seemed like 90 hours) the show ended and I was wasted! I was praying deep within this beautiful woman I was with wouldn’t’ judge me about it.

However, this wasted feeling was far beyond what I’m accustomed to. Maybe it was the previous 24 days of being clean that induced such a high? I’d never felt this tipsy before.

To be honest, I’d been high the entire day. It started right after I read that email upon waking, which then lead me to reading the excerpts of her upcoming book.

The chapters stopped me in my tracks, knocked me to the floor, and left me in a pool of tears trying to somehow piece together the experiences of my life since childhood.

Finally, it all started to make a bit more sense. I didn’t fully understand what I was reading or experiencing but I realized I didn’t necessarily need to. All that I needed to do was be appreciative of what was coming up at the present moment.

And what was rising from within rattled me like a pair of maracas in a reggae band. Shook up, confused, yet oddly feeling a strange peace I realized this buzz was the best high I’d ever felt.

I didn’t try to hold back the tears. Didn’t try to control the situation. And I didn’t try to manipulate the issue where I could feel comfortable or be the alpha man who had all the answers.

Instead I just witnessed, allowed and appreciated what was unfolding in front of me.

You see, I had been drunk not on booze, but on life that entire day.

Thankfully, this drunken state doesn’t need a 12 step program to fix anything because nothing is truly broken. You and I are complete in who we are right now. Whether you’re a recovering addict, an addict who’s currently high while reading this, an overweight person suffering with depression, or someone who feels so miserable you’ve considered ending it all, you too are perfectly complete in who you are right now.

But maybe, just maybe you’ve lost your map to that inner peace and happiness.

Seek And You Shall Find

My journey for one year sober is really just a small piece of the bigger journey I’ve been on for 19 years now. It’s a sliver of discovery in a much larger puzzle I’ve been trying to complete for a very long time.

And the be totally honest, I doubt that puzzle will ever be entirely finished because even if I do attach all the loose pieces, I’m going to want to extend the pieces to make the picture so much bigger than what’s included in the box.

I’m remember one time a guy said to me… “Bro, you don’t just live outside the box, you live outside the warehouse”.

And it’s this attitude that’ll always have me searching for the next high, the next accomplishment and the next hangover from too much bliss.

Luckiest Scuba Divers Ever!

This may be some of the coolest GoPro footage I’ve seen in a while. It really makes me miss being in the water with all the critters.

Sitting In The Woods

Sometimes I just sit in the woods and lounge under a tree. I’m not doing anything in particular other than being. I just sit there, watch my breath and thoughts and eventually slip into no mind.

Little Crater Lake

Maybe I’ll pick up a pine cone and smell it and get lost for another 5 minutes. Then my awareness will shift to the sound of the Woodpecker drilling a hole in the dead tree above. I bet it would be cool to be friends with a Woodpecker. If I were a Woodpecker I’m pretty sure I’d carve artsy stuff on bus stop benches.

The smells along the Pacific Crest Trail near Mt. Hood are so crisp. It’ll get even more crisp as winter falls upon us. This smell seems to penetrate right into the lungs in a way no southern California air can. It’s hard to describe, but one whiff of Oregon mountain air and I know I’m home.

At times I feel like I’m going crazy when I’m in the woods. Then I wonder… “Maybe this is what enlightenment is supposed to feel like?”. Then I think… “Dude, you got one hell of an ego”. And then I ping pong those feelings for a while and dismiss them as I get distracted by a mushroom I haven’t seen before.

I’d like try Amanita Muscaria’s, but I’m a bit afraid of poisoning my liver. I bet the trip is pretty intense though.

Deer, elk, bears, river otters, beavers, birds, are bugs, they’re all around. Most don’t show their faces that often, but they’re out there. I’m pretty sure Webber’s dog collar keeps them at bay. It’s sort of loud and helps me keep track of him when we are wandering deep in the woods.

Meeting people in the woods is a cool thing. It doesn’t happen that often on more obscure trails but when it does happen, the people are almost always super chill and the kind you’d like to have as your friends.

There’s just something about the woods.I can’t really say it’s better than the ocean, it’s just different. It helps me let loose of rampant thoughts and channel my creativity much better. It’s kind of like taking a shower in a way where you’ll spawn all kinds of amazing ideas.

I like the woods.

Free Hula Hooping

So I was riding my bike today through Pacific Beach in San Diego and I came across this guy who set up all these hula hoops and just offered them for free for anyone who wanted to have some booty shaking fun. What a stud!

Skip The Hotel & Try AirBnb

So I’m supposed to fly out to Chicago tomorrow to celebrate my birthday in Wrigley Field with a bunch of friends.

Being the slacker that I am, I still hadn’t booked a room for my first two nights in town. So I headed to Expedia to try and reserve a room somewhere in the Wrigleyville area. Crap! Looks like there’s not too many options and even a crack shack like the Days Inn is $129 a night. Whatever, I tried to book it anyways. Sold out! Double crap :(

My next move was to log on to AirBnB.com to see if I could find a room. I’ve never used the service but found out about it from a girl I had been dating recently and she’d been using it to rent out a room in her house. She said it was pretty rad, and so far I have to agree with her. AirBnB

Their website says this about themselves… “Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone. Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.”

To be honest, I didn’t even look at all the options when I logged on. I took one look at the first apartment near Wrigley and clicked the reserve button. And get this… It was only $72 or something, which is half of what a dive motel would of been after taxes.

After a few quick setup steps like uploading my drivers license and connecting my Facebook profile, I was a member and had submitted my payment and request to rent the place for the two days. Within 20 minutes I got an approval for the owner and it’s done! I’ll update how the trip went and how the experience was once I get back.

Cheers,

Jason

PS: I asked my Facebook friends what they thought about AirBNB and they ALL overwhelmingly agree it’s incredible. You can read that post here – – -> https://www.facebook.com/jasonemoffatt/posts/143383219176227

Whether you’re backpacking around the country, or trying to save a few bucks while in town for a seminar, AirBnB appears to be an absolute gem.

PPS: If you’ve tried out AirBnB before, I’d love to hear your experience. Let us know in the comments below. Thanks!
