    Consciousness Found Versus Consciousness Lost

           I've always tried to look past the illusion of Maya.  From an early age, I knew that there had to be more to life (and whatever happens after) than working a 9 to 5, raising kids, & growing old.  I joined different churches...

    A Lighter Look At Life

    Not to be flippant, but I got this in a joke e-mail and it made me chuckle; I hope it does the same for you: The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get in the end of it? Death. What's that...a...

    I've decided the only truth is the truth you

    make for yourself. If you accept other people's truths without question you cannot learn about yourself or your place in the world.

    The Universal Need For Guidance In Life

    A few days ago, I asked myself "What do I really want for myself most of all in this life? I have a reasonable flat to stay in, enough food, a moderate amount of money coming in... what do I really want that would make a big difference in my life right now?" The thought came to...

    Lifelong Journey

    I know this it is cliche to say that getting to know one's self and the truth of one's being is a lifelong journey but it is probably true. Still, I can't help but wish there were a quicker way. And besides I am not sure a single life time is long enough. I want answers to the...

    Life's Journey
