I don’t know if you can start a blog with a disclaimer, but I am new to this and have some fear about being judged 🙂 I will always try to be as authentic and as honest as I can (with the caveat that my memory often lacks for specific details and I will write to the best I recall).

Although I have no specific religious affiliation. Shakubuku is a Buddhist term defined as “The action taken by a person that corrects the wrong beliefs of another person.” and “The process of leading a person to the correct teaching by refuting his/her attachment to erroneous beliefs.” per multiple internet site discussions.

Sakabuku gained pop culture notoriety as a quote from the movie Grosse Pointe Blank in 1997 when it was described as a “a swift, spiritual kick to the head that alters your reality forever.”

This was the more succinct version that was the inspiration to the brain child of ShakabukuNow. I think sometimes we need a swift spiritual kick to wake up and realize that the clock is ticking and the moments of our very being are passing by. Life is what is happening when we are busy doing other things. Life is not what we start after we figure out how to pay the rent, or we make sure the kids get to school, or we retire and finally ‘have the time’. Life is now, today, this moment.

Life is happening…What are you going to do about it?
