If you have no idea who Mastin Kipp is yet, then you should check out his blog TheDailyLove.com. Oprah has invited this “new generation spiritual thinker” on her show Super Soul Sunday and on tour for the Lifeclass. I don’t know about you, but I tend to trust Oprah’s recommendations. But funny enough, I didn’t discover him through the world’s number one media humanitarian. It all started with a forward from my then, yoga teacher and life coach, now friend. She said something along the lines of “check this out – you’ll love this guy’s blog.”
I signed up for his weekly emailed and started watching DailyLove TV. I always found his videos uplifting and I saw that his company, The Daily Love, was organizing a ton of personal development events. When he launched his book, Daily Love: Growing Into Grace I added it to my Amazon cart. Then it sat there for a couple of months until I saw one of his videos on getting unstuck. I figured, it’s now or never if I want to start getting my act together. Let’s see what this guy’s story is and what insights he might have to share.
It turns out, Mastin’s writing voice is incredibly honest and accessible. He’s smart and shares lessons from personal experience in a non-preachy way. He doesn’t make efforts to embellish parts of his journey nor does he make himself out to be a fully-fledged perfect hero. He shares his past battles and even his current challenges with courage and vulnerability. His issues are all there on the table for your judgement or inspiration. Although, most readers will be compelled into stepping into their power.
He openly shares his resources, from books to mentors and events. He recognizes that no one is entirely self-made and we all need help. Any fan of The Daily Love will tell you that Mastin is genuinely living in service and leads with his heart. And of course, his journey is too extraordinary to have been imagined; he’s been as low as the depths of the sea and he’s soared up there with greats like Tolle and Robbins. A guy just can’t plan that serendipity. His story is inspiring but that’s not all. Mastin is all about taking action, not just spiritual entertainment.
In essence, we learn that in order to change our lives, we need to be ready to face our fears and take action steps towards who we want to be and the life we want to live every day. My action toward a healthier me is finding help for dealing with sugar addiction and committing to my handstand challenge. I’m reinforcing a stronger mind and a stronger body. I will take my power back! As for my action toward my bliss, I’m posting weekly on this blog, which makes me truly happy, and I’m starting to organize my book in a more structured way. (YES! There will be a book…stay tuned!)
