I Think Self Discovery Is Important

    Psst. Hey. Hey you? Did you know your Source?

    Psst. Hey, you? Did you know your also human? You are Source in physical form. You are beauty, light, life, love, and peace all wrapped in one. As important as the Being is as we are human beings, so is the human part. They go hand in hand. When you feel as though you want to...

    Sometimes when we feel defeated,

    we surrender. Not to anything other than our mind. But our mind can play tricks on us, this much we know. Remember that you are not your mind. You are not your body. You are not the action of taking breath, you are breath. You are Source. If Source surrenders, Source surrenders...

    Why Do You Live?

    We live... for finding the answer. In every, different, context, we discover more about ourselves... and the more we understand about how we function, the more mysterious it is, why we did the things we did... luck and favor help us along, and we learn more about what we can do...

    We far too often forget about the self.

    We get wrapped up in going to work and maintaining our daily routines. Believing our experiences define us. Giving in to our minds convincing ourselves freedom doesn't exist. And in it all--we forget about the Self. Perhaps you have forgotten who the true Self is. Self is not...

    Forgiveness

    You know when you have a hard time accepting you've done something stupid? When you know you've done something wrong but don't know how to fix it? When you feel hopeless and defeated because you know you messed up? So what do you do next? What now? Now you forgive your Self. Now...

    We so often define ourselves by what we have

    been through. But we forget that we are not our experiences. You are not that girl that got raped. You are not that guy that got abused. You are not that person that was hurt. You're experiences have gotten you to today--but they are not You. You are You. And when you find...

    How sweet it is to be loved by my Self.

    Real love. The kind of love that is unconditional. The kind of love they write songs and poems about. The kind of love from Disney movies. The kind of love you dream about as a child. I had to remind my Self that I am the love of my life. In doing so, I found the love of my life...

    cannot love you the way you can? There is something exhilarating and empowering when one falls in love with the true essence of who they are. You are not a teacher. A daughter. A husband. A friend. These are all labels. If you are a daughter to your mother and a wife to your...

    I can't believe how stupid I've been sounding.

    The truth is I never had a demon. I thought I did. I thought everyday was a fight for life but really I was in Dream Reality. I thought I was the most selfless person in the world but really I was the most selfish. My mind is so creative it created a demon that was so real I was...

    Pleasure

    Ever since I was young I was never afraid to please myself. I think so many woman fear touching themselves. In a sexless marriage I'm thankful I at least have that. Woman need to discover where they want to be touched, how they want to be touched. They have to know what makes...
