Another Insight: Use this life to prep for your next one.

All accounts suggest that at the time of death, you will still feel like “you” even when you shuffle off this mortal coil. The evidence for this “consistency of self” comes from the almost universal surprise people feel when they suddenly realize that they have separated from their deceased body. The sense of self is so consistent and stable that the person doesn’t realize, initially, that anything has changed.

At death, you still feel like “you.”

So what are the implications of this “consistency of self?” … Read more…

Enlightenment and the Soul—Part I

Today I wrote the following for the book. The reader at this point in the manuscript will be familiar with the Evidence of the Soul and both the Aspects and Tiers of Mystical Oneness. There are at least three other similarities between the experiences of the enlightened state and the experiences of the Soul (unconditional Love, appreciation of Beauty, and access to vast knowledge), but this is as far as I got this morning. … Read more…

“I love you.”

Everyday I say this—if only in my head.

Sometimes I say it out loud.

Everyday I feel it—deeply feel it.

“I love you.”

Michelle sent me this video today, explaining how she sees Her everywhere in it.

When you see the BEAUTY in all those faces—when you see HER shining out from behind all these eyes—how can you not feel, “I love you.”

How can you not say it?

“I love you.”

She’s right here. Because I see Her everywhere, I’m such a different man that I was before.

And I’m so grateful.

“I love you.” It’s so easy for me to say these days… because it’s so easy for me to feel.

For the last week, I’ve been alternating my days between a day in the desert and a day in town—working on the book in the mornings, either in the van or in a coffeeshop, then taking the afternoons for myself. Now that I’m over the Writer’s Ennui I was experiencing with the Evidence of the Soul, the book is flowing along nicely.

Here’s something I wrote a few days ago, also for the chapter on Living as a Soul. I don’t expect any publisher will have a problem with me releasing these excerpts here, particularly since I’m writing them specifically for the book proposal, but who knows? One of the benefits of living as a Soul is you just don’t waste your time with doubts or concerns or second guessing yourself. … Read more…

Over the last few weeks I’ve told a couple of people that if they were only familiar with some of the evidence that the Soul is real, they’d be (nearly) as convinced as I am that upon physical death, we simple detach from our bodies and go about our business. Probably not quite that cavalier, but you get the point: Death’s nothing. You come back.

There’s still some cleaning up to do on the document—and you’ll see a few of my notes to myself—but rather than make everyone wait on it, here’s a link to a rough copy of the Evidence of the Soul chapter of the book. It’s a 42 page PDF, so right-click on it, and save it, and read at your leisure.

At around the 29:10 mark of this BATGAP video, Francis Bennett suggests a “Coming out of the Closet” day for spiritual teachers. He was talking about spiritual teachers becoming more transparent—to show their human side.

I’ve been saying this for years, and I was glad to have stumbled across the video (unfortunately, none of the rest of the panel of teachers seemed too thrilled about “coming out of the closet.”) … Read more…

What you focus on, you become. I’ve been focused on socializing at the RTR, and I’ve been focused on new glasses in Algodones, Mexico, and I’ve been focused on little tweaks to the rig and I’ve been lost in the world of Man because of it.

In other words, I’ve been spiritually slumming it. (So rude!) … Read more…
