Four Propositions for the Time of Mass Panic

Four Propositions for the Time of Mass Panic

The Universe is organizing a collective shift of consciousness that’s being delivered in the form of a global pandemic.  The shift means different things to different people. But one thing for sure is that all of us take part in it.  This collective shift brings many blessings, though many of them may not look like blessings. For example, the mandatory… Read more →

What Is Real? Or Does It Matter?

What Is Real? Or Does It Matter?

Is Santa Claus real?  Before you rush to a yes or no, stop for a sec. This question actually has no simple binary answers, because it’s a very ambiguous question.  Santa Claus may not exist in the same way that your friends and families exist. But he surely exists in our collective consciousness. In that sense he’s both real and… Read more →

Feel the Fear…And Do Nothing.

Feel the Fear…And Do Nothing.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the adage “feel the fear and do it anyway”. The idea behind is a sensible one. If you’re afraid of doing something as it’s out of your comfort zone, you should push through the fear and get the thing done. It’s good for your growth. The typical self-help mindset sees procrastination and hesitance to action… Read more →

Insist on Having It Your Way

Insist on Having It Your Way

Last week I caught up with an old friend whom I haven’t seen for many years. After briefing each other on how things had been, it was clear that how we had lived life couldn’t be  more different from each other. At one point my friend mentioned a difficult career choice of his. I told him how I’d go about… Read more →

Are You Occupying Your Body?

Are You Occupying Your Body?

What percentage of your body are you occupying?  That may sound like a strange question. But in fact, most of us are not fully present in our body most of the time. And when someone is not present, you feel it. Though ironically they themselves don’t ever take notice. Empathic beings tend to occupy less of our body– because everything… Read more →

The Most Productive Activity You Can Do for the Coming Year

The Most Productive Activity You Can Do for the Coming Year

Over the past year I’ve been called to become increasingly non-busy. My activity level has been going down, while I spend more and more time in quiet nothingness. But here’s the thing. Although I’ve been doing less, my output–the amount of my intellectual and creative production–has not decreased.  A part of me felt guilty. If you had been raised by… Read more →

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 →
