The Surrendering of the Ego

Bridge over the Rio Chama

HERON LAKE SP, NM—I originally wrote the following post three weeks ago, but something in me—you know, Her—told me to wait a bit before publishing it.

Here is what has happened in my student’s life between when the post was written, and today:

  • She is now much more at peace with her “split personality state” (Radiance).

It’s not a life for most, but for those to whom She calls – listen. Listen to Her urgings, to Her siren’s song. All sirens sit on deadly rocks, but to those who can put aside their fears – who can keep their heads when the doubts arise – those are the ones who will find their way around the dangers. Those are the ones who will find the rewards hidden in the mists.

Reincarnation as the Missing Spiritual Link

A Park in Phoenix, AZ

I had posted a comment on a Near Death Experience Yahoo Forum and got what read like a bit of attitude from one of the readers, probably due to a misunderstanding of my terminology. My clarification is below the break, but the point I was trying to make was that thinking of yourself as a Soul is not a hinderance to enlightenment, but rather a very important step
