Free will or destiny: which is it? It’s both actually. But let’s focus on free will. Yes, it’s true, you have free will. The real question is who are you? The “you” that is free to create at will is your deeper being, not the mental false identity.

Living an Awakened Life [SS043]
April 27, 2016

An awakened life in an available life. A life lived with no limitation on expression or experience. It’s a flow of consciousness. It is wholeness. The projected story is that awakening means walking on air with some constant half smile; a life of pure ...

When in Doubt, Here's How to Get Out [SS042]
April 20, 2016
