Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur’s Inspirational Transformation!
Published on Apr 30, 2012
If this story can inspire someone you know, please share it with them!
Arthur’s story is highlighted from the beginning, in the upcoming documentary, INSPIRED: The Movie. http://www.inspiredthemovie.com
(Thanks to filmmaker Steve Yu for putting this inspirational video together!)
Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.
He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try — he couldn’t do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.
Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey – he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.
Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP’s specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility — which gave him hope that maybe someday, he’d be able to walk again.
His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.
Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.
Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!

Feels so good, so right — all the time, worshiping the Lord, our God, with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength — Jesus’ greatest commandment.
“When I worship God I would rather my heart be without words
than my words be without heart.”

Surf Photographer Clark Little on Staring Down Shorebreak to Get the Perfect Shot
The Inertia | Published on Apr 25, 2014

Getting tossed around by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it’s all in a good day’s work. But the Waimea addict didn’t grow up snapping shots with his father’s camera like so many photographers do. He instead set out to capture his longtime stomping grounds when his wife came home with a framed photograph of Waimea shorebreak, an image he figured he would be able to easily replicate. Having never owned a camera, he threw a cheap “waterproof” casing over a cheaper point-and-shoot and headed out to the beach. Since that first attempt, Clark has not only emulated his wife’s purchased wall art, but — with a gallery in Haleiwa and international recognition — has become a heavily respected fixture of wave photography.
Special thanks to Tom Servais and Clark Little archives for the gorgeous imagery, and check out Clark’s new, 160-page coffee table book, Shorebreak, to see more of his work.

My Mom’s Kindergarten class, 1974!
On the top-left: our principal and my 8th grade teacher, Darell Knippel (a real blessing who encouraged me!!! Beside Darell is my mom, the teacher, Pat Fenske : )
I attended there, K-8. Huge blessing!! I’m so grateful!!!
Very amazing! Mom found this on one her student’s Facebook page.
Interesting song. I wrote this on Facebook:
No wonder why it has 22.5 million views! John B. Wells played this as bumper music, and I’m stunned how this layered tapestry of sound works — with the heartbeat — the chime on the upbeat. Amazing!
The lyrics may be sinister, from the dark side: “you don’t have to give up to let go” — let go of what? Our refusal to give in to temptation?
Amazing soundscape, though.

I’ve been thinking:
People find COMFORT being on the wide road, TOGETHER —
but deep down in their heart, they know BETTER.

‘ONE’ with each other in Him! Then we’ll feel right because we are right.
Be Divergent song + music video from Mike Adams the Health Ranger

The newest song + music video from Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, called “Be Divergent.”
This socially-conscious music encourages diversity, creative thinking and individuality. It’s all part of the Health Ranger’s effort to entertain and uplift society with positive messages.
You wanna learn something about yourself?
You’re more powerful than you could ever imagine
Did you ever have a new idea?
Did you ever seek a new frontier?
Did you ever try to question something
Invent something, create something?
Did you notice how they keep you down
Friends shove your mind into the ground
“You can’t do it!” they scream ‘cuz your ideas are
So unique they make them look weak
Just think for yourself. Think for yourself
Think for yourself, be divergent, be divergent
Think for yourself. Don’t be like everyone else
Think for yourself, be divergent, be divergent
Hey, you have to conform
Fit in, be average, worship the norm
Go with the flow like everyone else
And you can be popular just don’t be yourself
If you had dreams, sink ‘em in the deep end
Dream if you want, but only when you’re sleepin’
In the real world, you wanna get by,
Live your life as a lie and forget that you can fly
Yeah, you wanna be accepted, right?
So you crush your own mind without even a fight
You put your dreams on the shelf
And you wake up each day pretending to be someone else
I’m not sayin’ don’t be polite
But don’t let the masses burn out your heart light
You’ve got one life to live as YOU
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do
All this time, they told you be yourself
But then they scold you when you’re not like everyone else
It’s all illusion their expectations are so unkind
Don’t let them silence your beautiful mind
It’s time to throw off those mental chains
Be strange be the change you want to see in the world
That’s what Gandhi said with a gun to his head
But he didn’t back down and he didn’t give in
He was true to his dreams, strength from within
Said no to authority persecution
And ignited a global peace revolution
One day at a time
Don’t listen to those who try to get you down
Don’t surrender to hopelessness and helplessness
You are a divine being!
We all have the power of global transformation
But systems of control don’t want you to stumble upon that realization
They know that if you discover who you truly are
You might just go too far
And be divergent
