The Return on Investment of Suffering

The Return on Investment of Suffering

There’s a high correlation between pain and growth. Not because the former necessarily leads to the latter. But because growth often requires resistance and pressure. It’s the resistance and pressure you find against the status quo that instigates openings for growth.

Feeling Good Enough Has Nothing to Do with How Good You Are

Feeling Good Enough Has Nothing to Do with How Good You Are

The feeling of self inadequacy, and the shame, guilt, sadness associated with it, is a most human among human traits. We’re so used to it that most of the time you’re probably not even aware that you’re feeling not good enough.

Making Peace with Shame

Making Peace with Shame

Shame is one of the most powerful programming that run on the human operating system.

Inner Police v.s. Inner Knowing

Inner Police v.s. Inner Knowing

Guilt, shame, and fear carry a bad rep in spiritual circles. They are “low vibration”, keeping you from your personal freedom, the villains.

In… Read more →

Are Your Outdated Scripts Weighing You Down?

In 99% of cases we humans work similarly to a computer. Just like your laptop, you have a storage system to keep experiences, impressions, information and knowledge. And like your laptop, you have programs (or “scripts”) installed in you to handle various life situations.

Handling Uncertainties with the Power of the Source

How to Manifest Your Inner Growth as Outer Attainment

“I feel like I’ve grown so much internally and spiritually, but my external environment stays the same. Why? Don’t they say ‘As within, so without’?”  “I have so much potential.

Artificial Intelligence, Depression, and Cross-Dimensional Living

99 percent of humans, 99 percent of time, live in the “dimension of phenomena”, where it’s all about thoughts, emotions, energies, and stories, and consciousness manifests as very sophisticatedly programmed intelligence.

The Cut-to-the-Chase Way to Resolve Stress for Good

Most approaches that claim to help with stress cure the symptoms, not the cause. That’s why they are called “stress management”– they make your stress and anxiety more manageable, but they don’t make them go away. Earlier this week I had to have a sit-down talk with myself because I was feeling overwhelmed. So I channeled the Source to explore… Read more →

Are You in A Spiritual Rat Race?

A caterpillar walks into a therapist’s office. “I’m depressed,” he says to the therapist. “Because you know what the problem of my life is? No wings. I have no fucking wings, man! Can you fix that?
