    We incarnate into this world on a spiritual

    journey to enlightenment, the quicker we embrace this knowledge the sooner our souls can be complete. They say the soul wants to learn, it needs to learn! to expand the conscience, and so the people who come into our lives can sometimes help with these maturities, gain...

    Everything is an illusion--but what is the

    purpose of the illusion? What is the Creator's intention behind the illusion?

    This is very important

    for awakening and having mental peace and sanity. For finally putting your mind at rest. It has taken me years to learn this. Upon reading this quote, in the attached picture, it all became clear to me: I have been trying to mentally think my entire life into what I want it...

    I'm 37. I've been practicing living in the now

    for over a year. Until just recently I've been able to see a glimpse into the now. I felt it come and go while putting my daughters in bed one night. I decided to focus on the feeling and it just hit me. I started to shake, my heart started to race, everything was flat and...

    Everything is a mirror of you!

    This is the secret to liberation! If you feel upset at anyone or anything; it is you being upset with your own reflection. Like being in front of a mirror and being upset at yourself. This gives me understanding that the source of all conflict outside with people is only...

    I think this is a great guideline

    for life as I know it so far, to understand how you are always protected: All things that are the will of God for your destiny you cannot ruin. And what you do end up ruining for yourself is also the will of God; those are things that are meant to be destroyed. To lead you...

    Trying to make your ego huge to feel good about

    yourself is like telling yourself, "I hate myself, I have to compensate to make you something unreal and protect my heart." To love yourself is to be free of the wrong paradigm of who you believe yourself to be, not making it into something shinier. Because you as you are...

    Everything we are afraid of is

    because other people have told us we should be afraid of that. Our natural state is courageous curiosity and also remembering when to be noticing what should be watched out for. But the society around us teaches to increase fear in so many ways, and it heightens all sorts of...

    Poverty Of Soul

    Internal poverty is the poverty of the soul. It describes the unmoved soul. The soul that has been created, but has still failed to realize why. It is the soul that lives a purposeless life. The heart that beats, but has already died. Because while the body cries and bleeds and...

    Making Enlightenment Into A Mental Concept

    One of the main principles of being enlightened is non-attachment. This means not mentally clinging to anything that has form, whether an object, idea, thought, or emotional (or even spiritual) state. Many people, in a spiritual journey towards enlightenment, will have intense...

    Happiness cannot be sought,

    you cannot seek it. It is a by-product, it is a natural consequence. If you make a goal out of happiness you will never find it, you will always miss it. It comes very silently, it comes like a whisper, it comes like your shadow. When you are totally absorbed into something and...
