Great Whites, deadly jellyfish, now I gotta deal with this! 🏄🏻🐊😳🤦🏻‍♂️😂
#croconthebeach #gonnaneedabiggersurfboard

After eight years, nine days, and six hours, I finally achieved a milestone in #jiujitsu. It's funny because I did not have an aspiration or a goal when I started. I didn't even know why I really took up the sport. I just built learning on top of learning.
It wasn't always so.
.
When I first started in jujitsu, I had a background in Judo, so I figured I had this new sport down. I was going to dominate. I didn't have much to learn. Big mistakey!!
.
I soon realized jiujitsu was nothing like Judo. I consistently got my ass handed to me. I was choked. Made to tap out continuously and pretty much destroyed every time I stepped onto the mat. So, I decided to go back and become a student of jiujitsu.
.
The secret was going back to the basics. In Zen, there is a term, "beginners mind". "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few." So begins this most beloved of all Zen books.
.
It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner in that subject would.
.
Beginners mind is about the basics. Understanding the structure and scaffolding the basics provide for growth and development.
.
You should never lose your self-sufficient state of mind, which is nothing more than an empty mind. If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything and all possibilities. In the expert's mind there are few.
.
As I've progressed, I've abandoned the thought that I have attained something. When I have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, I become a true beginner. Then I can really learn something.
.
No matter what belt I currently wear, I will always be a white belt. I will always be a beginner. I will always and continuously have to prove myself. I will always be open to learning. I will always be learning.
.
That's really the secret. Always have a beginner's mind. It is the secret to accelerated learning and increased creativity.

Really enjoyed this conversation with @robtrainsystems. Thanks Mike!!

**********************
*
For the past several years I've kept running into this older guy at one of my surf spots.
*
Some of the guys referred to him as the "crazy old guy". People like him make me curious about his story, because we all have a story. So one day, I decided to approach him in the parking lot.
*
The moment I did, he postured up and clenched his fists. I thought,"oh boy here we go!".
*
I introduced myself and extended my hand. I asked him how long he had been surfing and he said "a long time". He then turned and got in his car and left, and I felt odd, because it was an odd encounter..
*
When I got to the parking lot today. I heard,"60 years!" I looked back and said "huh??".
He repeated,"60 years. That's how long I've been surfing."
*
Turns out this "crazy old guy" was a Vietnam vet who grew up in the 1960s, when surfing was more popular than ever. While guns were being fired in Asia, he experienced the counterculture that swept the nation back home.
*
Surfing and the music of the time provided much-needed relief from the death and destruction of war. "You’d take everything day by day. It was an escape because If you thought too much about what was happening it would destroy you."
*
He was a veteran of China Beach, the most famous surf spot of the Vietnam War.
*
China Beach was actually My Khe beach in the city of Da Nang. It was a rest and relaxation station, next to a large military hospital.
*
"War is not good for anybody.... You can survive it, but that's all you can do," he said. "And surfing has helped me survive it."
*
"When we came back we weren't very well accepted. It's not like we were treated as heroes. So I'm very weary of anyone approaching me, no hard feelings", and with that he extended his hand.
*
A connection made and maybe a little healing, all courtesy of the ocean and a love of surfing.

When I got to Nebraska as a GA, Coach Boyd Epley gave me a speech and when I had an exit meeting with him before I left, he gave me that same speech.
*
It started and ended with the same statement. "The great ones adapt", he said.
*
Life is neither static nor unchanging. With no individuality, there can be no change, no adaptation and, in an inherently changing world, any species unable to adapt is also doomed.
*
People seem to get used to anything, and it is a short step from the inability to adapt to attachment.
*
The Buddha had it right: pretty much all of our struggles, from frustrations to anxiety, from anger to sadness, from grief to worry, all stem from the same thing-the struggles come from being too attached to something.
*
Any of us who have tried to let go of attachments know that it’s not so easy in practice. When our minds are clinging tightly, we don’t want to let go. Adaptation is difficult. We really, really want things our way. ALL THE TIME. We don't really want to adapt.
*
Three things helped me turn Coach Epley's advice of adaptation into non attachment.
*
1. Living in a way that allows me to go with the natural flow of things and respecting the impermanence of all things in life.
2. Understanding that ALL the suffering in my life comes from my head. ALL OF IT. It's not situations, it's my thoughts about the situation.
3. Letting go of resistance. Adapt as the situation dictates and as needed.
*
In the end, the whole of life is about adaptation. Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative. Thanks Coach Epley!

There are 5 things I try to get in every morning.
1. Light - Circadian Rhythm Optimization
2. Movement
3. Water
4. Cold Exposure
5. Grounding
All of them together supercharge me for the day ahead.
********************************
Wake up - 3 minutes Alt Nostril Breathing
*
APNEA Protocol 2 - 1-3-2 inhale/hold/exhale - time in secs 7/21/14
*
#Meditation x 10 min
*
2O oz lemon water /1 teas mag citrate/ 15 electrolyte drops/ 1/8 teas of Himalayan sea salt
*
#1,#2,#3 (Circadian Rhythm Optimization/Movement/Water) 60 minutes surfing on sunny beach.
*
Nasal breathing ONLY throughout focusing on cadence and rhythm while surfing. Nasal breathing induces nitric oxide, a vasodilator, boosts the immune system and triggers mitochondrial biogenesis.
*
#4 Post Surf: 5 min shower - last 3 min COLD
*
Fast for an hour then eat. -Meal: 2eggs/ 2 pieces of bacon, 1/2 avocado drizzled with olive oil and #sea salt.
*
Supplements: Vit D/ DHA
*
#5 Grounding: I'll take my meal outside, and sit barefoot on the grass while I eat.
*
Some days I surf. Some days I swim in ocean. Some days I paddle. But everyday has AM #movement, preferably in water. Sometimes it's the pool.
*
I try to get AM light exposure which helps set the body's #circadianrhythm.
*
Cold exposure has been proven to boost the immune system. In [Immune system of cold-exposed and cold-adapted humans], Janský L, et al, found that cold exposure activated the immune system.
*
In [Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the #Earth's Surface Electrons], Chevalier et al, found emerging evidence that contact with the Earth—whether being outside barefoot or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems—may be a simple, natural, and yet profoundly effective environmental strategy against chronic stress, ANS dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV, hypercoagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease. Best part ...it's free.

I have been very blessed and fortunate to have surfed in 4 out of 5 oceans of the world and 6 out of seven continents. (I'm coming for you Australia in 2018).
*
The one common denominator of the oceans is obviously water. It's an abundant and a natural resource. Though abundant in nature not everyone has access to clean water.
*
In fact, 2.3 billion people in the world – one in three – do not have a decent toilet.
*
844 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water.
*
Around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That's almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes.
*
42% of healthcare facilities in Africa do not have access to safe water.
*
Globally, 17% of the urban population and 50% of the rural population lack a decent toilet.
*
At current rates of progress, everyone in low- and middle-income countries won’t have clean water until 2039.
*
At current rates of progress, everyone in low- and middle-income countries won’t have decent toilets until 2066.
*
If everyone everywhere had clean water, the number of diarrhoeal deaths would be cut by 34%.
*
Globally, 31% of schools do not have clean water and 34% lack adequate toilets.
*
Waves For Water (W4W) @wavesforwater was started by a surfer Jon Rose, in 2009, as a nonprofit organization established with a primary aspirational goal— to provide global access to clean water to those in need.
*
W4W's approach is providing practical solutions through water source creation (well digging, well restoration, and rainwater harvesting) and/or water purification (water filtration systems) based on each community's specific needs.
*
To date, W4W has conducted 105 custom projects in 27 countries. Installed 150,000 water filtration systems and 100 rain harvesting systems, and more than 100 wells have been constructed or restored.
*
Help make a difference by helping provide access for those in need to something we take for granted every day - clean water.

THANK YOU! 🙏🏻

I've always hated #running. Hated. It. Never saw the appeal. I couldn't understand why people would "just go for a run." I didn't get it. At. All.
*
There's this constant narrative of both body and mind telling you to quit. Not to mention the chaffing and the blisters.
*
Maybe it's cause I've always been a fast twitch kinda guy. A #sprinter not a marathoner.
*
Recently I read an article by @justflysports [ Art of the Trail Run: Optimizing “Cardio” for Improved Elastic Power?] who describes it as "cardio death is more about the low-variability repetition then anything else, kind of like Chinese water torture.  The same “drop” of ground strike over, and over, and over is the slow demise of multiple bio-motor abilities and the athletic response." That's EXACTLY how I felt.
*
He goes on to describe how he had gone on a back country trail run with @coach_cater and how that short run had re-ignited many of his #athletic qualities.
*
"Combining “cardio” with #variability is critically important.  This mentality helps to keep the mind and body more active and engaged in the run.  It keeps the feet and hips alive, instead of succumbing to shoe-based destruction of repeat confined exposure to the concrete."
*
It made sense and really answered the question of why I hated running so much. The lack of variability.
*
So today rather than my customary track workout, I went for a trail #run. I started to sense something I had not sensed before. It's like an escape. Not very different from the mind set I have when I surf.
*
At some point there there is a zero point convergence of mind and body. There is nothing but the rhythmic tempo of your breathing and stepping. No sights or sounds other than those in nature.
*
Somewhere along the run a hawk followed me for most of the run and I forgot the chaffing. I forgot the pain. I was in a different mental and physical space.
*
I enjoyed the variability the trail brought to my brain.
*
I got it. I get it. I'm a fan.

You have 86,400 seconds today. What are you going to do with that time?

It's a new day, as I head out at first light after getting back home. A day full of nothing but possibilities. To act different. To pay it forward. To make a phone call. To leave a kind voicemail. To take someone out to lunch. To send a hand written note. To be kind. We are always choosing who we are and reinventing ourselves moment by moment with our choices.
