  • “Being aware that you’re going to die opens up the fierce urgency to really live.”
  • Kute describes a miracle as a shift in our attention and the willingness to see the magic in ordinary moments.
  • Integrating the sacred and mundane: While his father was always on a path of his own mission, Kute is hopeful that future generations will have a better opportunity to balance the sacred and mundane moments of life.
  • Afraid to lose what love + connection he received from his dad, Kute spent many years living forth the plan his dad set ahead of him instead of finding his true passion.
  • Do I want to die holding back? Kute shares how a near-death experience in India allowed him to make peace with death.
  • “It’s not about what happens when we die. It’s about how are we going to live this moment right now.”
  • In a moment of anxiety… take pause to recognize where your attention is directed, reframe the situation, focus on the present and break down actions into small, simple steps.
  • Instead of overriding the feelings of exhaustion, listen to your bodies and discover ways to rest in order to feel rejuvenated.
  • To combat isolation + loneliness, Kute encourages being intentional in cultivating community and connect with our true spirit.
  • “You can be alone and not feel lonely. I’ve found when I feel lonely, I’m disconnected with myself.”
  • “Life itself is ultimately a process of surrender.”
