When we are feeling stuck we can sometimes mistake our soul’s desire for transformation for our ego’s desire for novelty. All transformation involves change, but not all change includes transformation. The ego is novelty seeking. It craves change for the sake of change. The soul is transformation seeking. It craves evolution and growth for the sake of evolution and growth.
In this video we discuss finding the inner teacher and living a spirit led life. The path to god and self-realization is long and winding. We begin that path in darkness. Lost in maya, not knowing up from down, backwards from forwards, darkness from light. Over time through the lessons of pleasure and pain we start to discern up, forwards, and light.

In this video we will discuss how to heal your lineage. As we have often said everyone has both individual and collective karma.

In this video we discuss how to deal with criticism on the spiritual path. Critics come in two forms, those outside of us and those inside of us.
