Who doesn’t have a little something they don’t like about themselves?

From the book… … Read more…

The Inner Ego Aspect is all about our core personality. Not our roles, not our beliefs. Not our Me-story. Deep, ingrained personality traits. Traits that are practically impossible to change on our own, yet still change all on their own. … Read more…

When I write computer code, the “me” disappears and I become the Code.

When I watch the horrors on the news, the “me” disappears and I become the Horror.

Ever have an infant look up at you? What did you see?

Selfless Love.

How do I know?

Because once you were that infant staring up at a stranger.

Selfless, unconditional Love. It is there within you. It has always been.

It is just trapped behind your me-me-me mind.

What was the inner experience like for Christ? Let’s forget the biblical stories and miracles and lessons for a moment, but instead (what you focus on, you become) focus on what it is to be so awake that the Divine and the Individual become practically indistinguishable from each other.

What follows is the highest form of spiritual practice that I am capable of. I wish everyone could see and experience life this way, so in humbleness, please consider this my Christmas gift to you. … Read more…
