The Frozen Movie Meditation

The Frozen Movie Meditation

I’m a huge fan of the Disney movie Frozen when it first came out in 2013. Last week, Frozen 2 was released in theatres. As of yesterday afternoon, I already watched it three times (Don’t judge. I have justifications!) A fairytale like Frozen is highly symbolic– it represents an archetypal story of a certain aspect of human existence. And the… Read more →

Here Are the 3 Main Approaches to Healing. They Are Not Created Equal

When we keep acting out of the programming stored in our “local storage” (i.e. our physical and energetic body), which rarely updates, we stop growing. Or worse, we let past traumas and negative experiences define our present behaviors.  Healing involves doing something to your existing programming. And generally there’re three things you can do: Edit / rewrite the programming  Change… Read more →

State of the Game in Consciousness Evolution

State of the Game in Consciousness Evolution

Change is an uncomfortable business. Evolution = Change on the most fundamental scale. Consciousness evolution = Change on the most fundamental scale to how your human system processes, stores, and uses information.  So it’s no wonder that consciousness evolution is probably one of the most cognitively uncomfortable things you’d ever experience. That’s why many of us can feel so disoriented,… Read more →

Trust Yourself Enough to Stand Alone

Trust Yourself Enough to Stand Alone

It’s not an accident that many so-called charismatic leaders are narcissists. After all, leadership requires an unwavering conviction in your own vision of the world. And the inability to empathize with others makes it easier to be unwavering in whatever you believe in. Except such leadership does not often steer the world into a better place, for obvious reasons.  In… Read more →

Penguins, Chickens, And the Quest for Your True Self

Penguins, Chickens, And the Quest for Your True Self

Imagine for a sec that you’re a baby penguin, but you don’t know that you’re a penguin– because you grow up in a chicken coop. You have chicken parents, chicken friends, and chicken school teachers. Everyone of them tells you that you are one of them and you’re expected to behave accordingly… …until one day a realization dawns on you… Read more →

The Wisdom of Confusion

The Wisdom of Confusion

Confusion is a state that the mind desperately tries to get out of, as soon as it finds itself in it. Shock is often times our first response to any unexpected incidents, trauma and loss in life. And then there’s the inevitable question of “why did this happen to me”, and it’s spiritual variation– “why did God let this happen”.… Read more →

Where You’re Going Has No Roadmap

Where You’re Going Has No Roadmap

Most humans are a product of their lineages. Whether you receive the gifts and limitations of their lineage through “nature” or “nurture”, the pack of scripts (human softwares) that get passed down from generation to generation has a huge influence on who you think you are. For many, many people that actually define who they are and how they behave… Read more →

What to Eat for Expediting Inner Transformation (Especially for Empaths)

What to Eat for Expediting Inner Transformation (Especially for Empaths)

When people tell me about their experience of going through intense periods of inner transformation, it typically includes side effects like these:  Overwhelm, depression, frustration, spaciness, lack of drive, lack of focus, chronic exhaustion, mood swings, trouble sleeping. There are many reasons why you may be experiencing some of these symptoms. But not all of these reasons are spiritual or… Read more →

Most Spiritual / Self-Help Modalities Got This Wrong...

Most Spiritual / Self-Help Modalities Got This Wrong…

The modern empowerment culture tells you to love your body. But nobody explains why, beyond the functional purpose of raising our society’s perennially low self-esteem.  On the other hand, many traditional spiritual teachings carry the implicit connotation that the body is a burden, that whatever you experience through the body is unenlightened and ephemeral. The truth goes much beyond either.… Read more →

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. From a certain perspective, whatever pain or suffering you’re going through is a gold mine– a rich source for… Read more →

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. The pop culture of empowerment prescribes positive self belief as an antidote– if you’re feeling inadequate, you’re not talking… Read more →

Making Peace with Shame

Making Peace with Shame

Shame is one of the most powerful programming that run on the human operating system. It’s powerful partly because we impulsively want to run away from it, and what you avoid inevitably holds power over you. It’s also powerful because unlike other so called negative emotions, such as fear, sadness, and anger, the target of shame is almost always the… Read more →

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. You should get rid of them as fast as you’re able… but should you? Every script that has ever been running your life served a constructive purpose, at least at the time when they were installed. 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. Without the ability to store stuff or without pre-installed scripts, neither you nor your computer would… Read more →
