My name is Jon.
I’m a writer and storyteller from Melbourne, Australia who believes everyone on the planet can feel inspired and connected, and be living as their best lives…all at the same time.
You might call me an idealist.
Growing up around a bunch of meditators and Buddha statues will do that to you. I was the curious kid growing up. You know, the one constantly tormenting his parents with ‘why?’ every 5 minutes, touching shiny things and quietly trying to piece the grand puzzle of life together.
Ever since, I’ve loved to learn, discuss and write about how we can step back from the blur of life and get greater clarity about who we really are, what we believe and strategies to approach this weird train of existence we all (for some reason) bought tickets for.
There’s so much we can learn from science, philosophy and spirituality – but the boldest ideas are often the hardest to understand. That’s where I come in, crashing through the wall yelling ‘Wait! Let me explain!!’
What I write about
I write about stepping back from the blur of life to find clarity about who we really are, what we believe, and the strategies we need to ride this train called life like a pro like a total fucking pro.
Here, you’ll read about the high-level spiritual, emotional, physical and metaphysical ideas and concepts you can actually apply to your own life and see results.
I’ve fought some tough personal battles in my life, and I share what I’ve learned about handling tough times that demand all your strength and energy to overcome.
There’s a story I heard of a man who fell into a hole and couldn’t get out. A doctor came to see him, wrote a prescription, threw it in the hole and moved on. A preacher came, wrote him a prayer, tossed it in and walked away. A friend came to see him and jumped in the hole. “What are you doing?” the guy says. “Now we’re both stuck”. The friend says “I’ve been here before, and I know the way out.”
Whoever you are, whatever you’ve done to bring you to this sentence, I’m glad you’ve made it – and I’m jumping in the hole with you.
