As another on the path, I thought you would appreciate my new Spiritual leader. I can’t even tell you how good it feels to have finally found my path to Enlightenment. I muscle tested the consciousness of this technique and it is over 1000/1000. This is the real deal that all of humanity has been waiting for…
So I’ve been on this epic 90 Day Health Makeover and I’ve been doing amazing. My body is transforming, my relationship with food is changing and I feel great. But the other week I had a bit of a slip up and I’ve been holding out on telling you about it. I couldn’t think of a better way than a little old fashion comedy skit to share this life lesson. So here you go. I hope you have a laugh at the expense of my ego.
My body is feeling better and cleaner every single day. To be honest though the one thing I feel like I”m missing is my coffee ritual which I think is one of the things that stops most people from ever making shifts in their diet … because coffee is just so damn good. Well in my quest for a coffee replacement while I go through this journey I have created an amazing, high-vibing, super healthy chocolate elixir called “The Cacaobunga Elixir.”
In this video I share how to make it.
One of the paths to freedom I am taking is with my health. I am inspired to be strong, fit, clean on the inside and powerful in my body. As I set this vision for myself I had to create a true and honest look at my current habits with exercise and diet. My journey of health has been an ongoing progression for the last six or seven years, but this year when the clock struck midnight something shifted inside. I was 100% dedicated to seeing just how healthy I can make this body I’ve been blessed with.
I started January by simplifying my diet and eating really simple meals. Then on February 1st I dove in and began my 90 Day Health Upgrade, which is a full reAlkalining, reHydrating, reBalancing process. The company I am choosing to cleanse with is called, “Conscious Planet” and they have the most high-vibing, high integrity, amazing products I have put in my body EVER. I’m a friend of the founder, Charles Holmes, and his dedication, obsessiveness and total passion for the game of health inspires me so much. Since the first time I met him and my body met his product line in 2007, I’ve been hooked!
I have been playing a lot with Improv Comedy lately and over the years. I love it. It is one of the greatest life skills I have learned for going with the flow, navigating my life and the moment by practicing presence, and shattering the ego by being utterly ridiculous. I feel like my life is an improvised skit and the more I practice this art, the more I am bringing it into my everyday experiences, challenges, interactions and creative endeavours. Not all my improvised moments are silly and funny, but what each has in common is the practice of being completely present and delivering the Medicine that is called for.
Mother Earth, Father Sky, Grandmother Moon, Grandfather Son, Creator of All that Is, thank you for this day, thank you for this moment, thank you for this breath, thank you for hearing this prayer. I thank the ancestors of this land, the ancestors of the Earth who have walked before me and paved a path of Truth and Righteousness. I thank all of the directions, all the minerals, all the animals and all the magic that makes up life. Thank you.
Thank you Creator for this blessed life that I live, thank you for my healthy body, for the beautiful and brilliant people you bring into my life and for supporting me to open my heart more to what is Real, to love. Thank you Great Spirit for teaching me to be strong, radiant and grounded in my path and purpose. Thank you for bringing to me all that makes me passionate and for lovingly and gently guiding me forward.
Learn to create your Nowality, the Tony way (Bullshit not included)…

My key motivation was freedom, which I believe is common amongst entrepreneurs. I wanted to be able to play professional golf, travel the world and have as much fun as humanly possible. From that first step, many failed attempts thereafter and up to this now moment, I have carved my own path, creating a lifestyle that blows my mind with it’s utter simplicity, fun and pure potentiality. Around 2007 I made a very simple intention, which was to turn all of my passions into profit generating businesses that make a difference in the world….
It started with gratitude which was the life lesson I needed to learn at that time of my life. A buddy and I launched a viral video on youtube called, The Gratitude Dance and through that sharing, we embarked upon a couple year adventure of sharing the power of gratitude with thousands of people around North America. Truthfully, we teach what we need to learn and I truly needed to learn gratitude at that phase of my life. The Universe humbled me again and again over those couple years with many trials and tribulations.
I then moved started with meditation. Through my business, Cowabunga Life I have led hundreds and hundreds of meditation circles as well as online programs which have supported people with their practice in more than 20 countries (that I’m aware of). I learned a great deal about facilitating powerful experiences, building online programs for passive income and learning to show up completely present to the need of the moment. I have also learned a great deal of patience because my beginning years were very challenging financially and my business thrived through hard work and love.
Then I went on to travel and adventure. Through the meditation platform, I got enough life-loving, inner adventurers thirsty for more. So I took my passion for travel and led Spiritual Adventure Retreats in Peru, Mexico, Hawaii, Tofino BC, Salt Spring Island BC, as well as played a supporting role by offering Cowabunga Meditations at several Epic Eden Hotsprings Retreats in AZ and at the David Wolfe New Years Retreat in Hawaii 2012/13. This has fulfilled my love and intention or paid travel, crazy adventures and multi-cultural Spiritual Transformation.
Now I am trying my funny bone. On the Spring Equinox of 2014 I am going to be launching a comedy platform called, New Earth Comedy which essentially will be like a conscious version of Saturday Night Live. This has been a dream and powerful vision of mine for nearly six years and finally I have the green light from Spirit that the time has come to actually do it. I am beyond stoked. The whole business model of this is built upon partnerships with the greatest, coolest, funniest game-changers on the Planet and to spotlight their/our/your work through hilarious parody skits. This is gonna be a whole lot of fun!
I’ve also come full circle with golf in the last few years after being away from the game for about 7 due to lack of finances in my beginning years as an entrepreneur. I am now playing quite a lot, getting good again and will be playing a ten to twelve tournaments this year. Through my personal meditation practice and inner explorations over the last decade I have learned so much, all of which I am now applying to my golf game. Through these life lessons, I have written a book called, “Be Golf: Golf in the Moment” which I have decided I will wait until 2015 to publish to give me a full year to embody, practice and refine the principles I teach in it. The book’s purpose is to teach golfers how to consciously get into the zone through breath and focus techniques.
All I am saying is that not only is it 100% possible for you to to turn your passions into your businesses, it is your birthright and responsibility as an entrepreneur and conscious Creator walking the earth to do just that! You might be on this Planet for 30, 50 or 100+ years. We don’t know how long. Wouldn’t you rather spend every waking moment focusing on stuff that gets you excited, makes you come alive and is fun PLUS it enriches the lives of others!? Of course you do…
Clarity is a major factor in Creating. Get out of your mind that you’ve gotta know exactly what to do for the rest of your life in this moment. Just pick the ONE thing that is your biggest yes and work on that until it’s not. In the beginning I would try to work on a dozen projects at a time and I would hardly ever finish anything or I’d do a shitty job if I did. Focus on just one thing to start, do it really well and complete it. Even if the ‘something’ isn’t your forever thing, there is something incredible that happens when you fulfill a vision from start to finish. Oh yah, you might as well expect to meet plenty of resistance from the ego along the way to creating whatever it is. That’s all part of the growth process.
If I could break it down into some bite sized wisdom nuggets, I’d tell you to accept where you are right now, even if you don’t like it. Find every tiny thing to be grateful for about the here and now. Rejecting your Nowality creates ridiculous amounts of unnecessary pain, suffering and struggle. Accept and celebrate it. Do this authentically and you’ll move forward with a whole lot more lubrication in your flow. Another key factor is to be patient. It might take you a decade to fulfill one of your bigger visions. Shit, it might take you the rest of your days on Earth to do it so you might as well enjoy every step of the way, laugh at every bump in the road and take time to enjoy life everyday. Two other important lessons I’ve learned is to make it about the people you’re serving. Even though your business, vision or product is about you and your passions, it actually isn’t. It’s about you sharing your Soul with the world because what you offer as your thing is just an extension of you. Focus on being of service and focus every single day on having as much fun as you possibly can. The entrepreneurial adventure is your quickest way to personal growth because there is no safety net, no security, no guarantee, nobody will rescue you. It’s just you. So be sure to fall in love with the journey because the journey is you!
Good luck and stay blessed!
Seriously though, clarity is the first key to creating what you want in your life and the world. Writing about your dreams and making vision boards like this is a potent way to call in the magical experiences into your life to make your dreams happen. Anyways… just watch the video (have a laugh, be inspired and go create)!
