I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.

Making Painful Decisions

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
-Anais Nin

Sometimes change can be so difficult that we find ourselves doubled over in pain. Tears flow uncontrollably, and the pain is so intense that we just want to wake up from the nightmare we are experiencing and find that life is the same as it was before things changed. These moments are especially challenging when …

Does God Really Exist?

Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods.
-C.S. Lewis

The question of whether or not God exists may have significance beyond any other. It affects the roots of our priority system. It molds our perception of the meaning of life. And, it changes the way we feel about the experience of death. But, no scientific method, whether philosophical or physical, has yet proven the …

How to be Inspired When Filled with Negativity

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
-Isak Dinesen

When we are inspired, the world around us looks different. Negativity around us does not affect us. But sometimes, negativity brews within us. Never ending responsibilities, failed dreams, difficult relationships, illness, death and money problems may leave us feeling dissatisfied. Anger, grief, frustration, shame, intolerance, fear and even hopelessness are all part of our experience …

Free Will Versus Fate

Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway.
-Mary C. Crowley

If everything happens for a reason and our fate and destiny are already determined, how can we have free will? Are our lives predetermined by destiny or do we have the free will to map our own experience? The answer is Yes. Both are true. Free will and destiny are not opposites. We tend to …

In Silence We Find Our Genius

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
-Minnie Aumonier

When our hearts are calm and silent, We see things clearly. We build strength. We are in tune to unlimited creativity. Our intelligence sours. Nothing can disturb or interrupt us. We are unstoppable. It is in moments of clear, focused silence, that we can identify with and cooperate with God, and therefore, gain access to …

How to See God

"I was six when I saw that everything was God, and my hair stood up, and all," Teddy said. "It was on a Sunday, I remember. My sister was a tiny child then, and she was drinking her milk, and all of a sudden I saw that she was God and the milk was God. I mean, all she was doing was pouring God into God, if you know what I mean."
-J.D. Salinger

God is everywhere and everything. We often fail to recognize God when we focus on things we find displeasing, when we lack gratitude and when our thoughts are loud and busy. Here are a few tips we can use to remove the obstructions to our view of God: Be still and silent whenever you can. …

We Are Already Here

People see God every day, they just don't recognize him.
-Pearl Bailey

We often think of the idea of getting in touch with God as a process that will someday be complete, at which time we will reach spiritual bliss. We might imagine a long journey from our stress filled lives where we finally get away from it all and arrive someplace new and peaceful. The spiritual …
