I work to live, I don’t live to work. I’ve always had a deep curiosity for just about everything, and “never let schooling get in the way of my education” to quote Mark Twain.
Continuing to quote Twain: “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” I believe we are here for a reason, and our primary focus is to come to know our highest purpose, which does evolve. It is based in joy and passion, not in hard work. Work becomes easy and fulfilling when we’re actualizing our purpose.
I’m clear that my purpose ahead is doing all I can to accelerate bringing forth abundant, affordable zero carbon energy which is foundational to social equality, an equality which when claimed by all will bring joy to all.
For well over a decade, I’ve enjoyed a seasonal cycle of heading south from the northern hemisphere roughly in November to either Australia or New Zealand for several months to cruise and live aboard “Mustang” or to stay with wonderful friends on land. By April or May I usually return north. In the northern summer I’m now based on San Juan Island in Washington State. During the transition in the spring and fall, I often visit my old home base of San Francisco, and travel on business as needed to the East Coast of the US or Europe.

Kunzang Trinley is the name given to me by the late Dungse Thinley Norbu Rimpoche when I took refuge in Tibetan Buddhism in the western year 1990. It is twenty-five years later in my life and spiritual journey that I now begin to feel comfortable in stretching to live up to this aspirational name.
Feel free to call me “Zang” anytime you wish to call forth my highest expression.
In mid 2010, my spiritual explorations called me to envision and develop mediation apps for the iPhone, one based on the publishing phenomenon, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, that sold over 25 million copies, and a second based on the eternal wisdom of the Twelve Step programs. I still personally enjoy listening to these guided mediations at those moments when the pace of modern life can be balanced by an antidote.
