This is precisely why doing inner work is so important. Turning our attention inwards gives us clarity about who we are and who we are trying to be.

Recording: 7 Ego Tricks to Watch Out For

Firstly, thanks to all my donors who have contributed to support this next online spirituality talk. Your donations are greatly appreciated.For this talk, I felt like offering some insights on a few very common tricks the ego uses any time it runs up against something that challenges its story. It is very common for people to learn things on the spiritual path that expose false beliefs and issues inside of them. This is great and should be expected! However, the ego sees such realizations as threats to your existence. It will then find ways… [Read Entire Story]

Online Talk: Living and Transforming in Energetic Flow

Many people are interested in the concept of going with the flow, but flowing with energy is not really well understood. What is commonly considered to be flowing is often a kind of rudderless drifting. In general, people see “flow” as something that gets them what they want, which are usually safety, comfort, and pleasure.However, the true flow does not necessarily take us towards an easy life nor away from difficulty. The true divine flow moves us where our soul most wants to go. That may be a difficult life for… [Read Entire Story]

Online Talk: How to Handle the Pain of Ego Death

For my last talk of 2017, I felt like talking about the pain of ego death. Dissolving the unconscious ego can be surprisingly painful. It’s particularly painful if a person doesn’t know that that is what is happening, and they are usually doing a lot of intentional resisting.

For some people–particularly those with trauma in their background–this pain can be almost crippling.However, … [Read Entire Story]

Recording: The Bliss of Being Nobody

I often refer to the space of presence as the space where we are “nobody.” But what does this mean to be nobody? How do we make decisions from that space? Isn’t it necessary to be some kind of somebody?Because we live in a culture that idolizes being a somebody, the concept that being a nobody could be okay much less a blissful experience seems absurd. Yet, as we grow on the spiritual path, we realize that being a somebody is too inflexible to be realistic. We get forced into choices and reactions that may be blind to some or many realities of life. That somebody becomes a problem to living in integrity, … [Read Entire Story]

Recording: How to Grow on the Spiritual Path

In my last online talk, I discussed the importance of healing on the spiritual path. People have so many wounds, and there is simply no way to walk or run until you’ve healed your broken bones. But when that does happen, a whole new world opens. That world is the world of spiritual growth.Most of what we believe is possible for ourselves is determined by our wounds. If we have a broken leg, we don’t believe that sprinting is possible. But once that… [Read Entire Story]

My next free livestreaming talk was requested by one of my students. I’ll be discussing the interconnections of heart, body, mind, and spirit in this next talk (you are welcome to post a comment below to suggest topics for future talks, by the way).Too often, Westerners think only in terms of the intellectual mind, but even science is helping to show the amazing level of interconnectedness of all different aspects of us.
