Politically Correct Gender Preferences vs Making the Unconscious-Conscious

Happy gay couple outdoors

This meme completely misses the bigger picture, and keeps people small and disempowered: The notion that because we were born with a particular sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or mental illness, that we have no choice over such experiences, is a very limited perspective of the overall issue, more politically correct than actually correct. The only choice in the list above that really is out of our control in this material reality is our race of origin. […] Read more »

Why we Over-commit in Life

Often our tendency to over-commit comes from a shadow. It comes from a need to prove that we are smart enough, worthy enough, successful enough, to please others or obtain validation and approval from the outside world. ~The Ford Institute The most successful people in our world are over committed to a particular area of their lives, it is not motivated by their creative passions, but by their passion to make a distant (or not […] Read more »

light-dark-dragons

Reposted from: Collective-Evolution | by Milan Karmeli When you were little, were you afraid of the dark? Most of us were. And I doubt we ever thought to question this fear. We were almost naturally taught to be afraid of the dark, because the dark is full of unknown things that might hurt us. But what usually happened when you turned the light on?

Just about anyone can get romantic, but far fewer can truly love and sustain love. Romance asks little more of us than popping a pill, but love — especially love in genuinely intimate relationship — asks for plenty, requiring not just our hearts but also our wakefulness, our integrity and discernment, and our on-tap capacity to both open and protect ourselves. Cutting through our romantic illusions does not, however, mean an end to relational magic; […] Read more »

Businessman on a chessboard,walk from the capsized dummies

When you judge the darkness, you judge yourself. When you avoid the darkness, you avoid yourself. When you fight against the darkness, you fight against yourself. There is an unseen third force that does manipulate however, and it is neither light nor dark, but it does currently work its manipulation and deceit under the cover of darkness, which is why we mistakenly judge the dark; for the darkness is the twin flame soulmate of the […] Read more »
