Read on Medium I have been studying mystical experiences, what I call Connection Experience, for just about twenty years now. I became interested in them when, out of the blue one day, I had one. While studying them I have “discovered” a couple of interesting things....

An article about healing and awakening. If you’re a typical “alpha type,” and if you use concepts like “alpha male” to justify and normalize your behaviour, you may need to rethink your self-image. Alpha is not healthy behavior. It is pathology rooted in childhood and environmental trauma.
In this article, we look at “alpha behaviour” and call it for what it arguably is, dysfunctional and toxic psychopathology. The cure, or at least a first direction towards a cure, is simple.

Has your [bodily] ego exploded? It is an understatement to say there is a lot of misconception about spiritual awakening and spiritual (a.k.a. ascension) out there. It is often a case of the blindfolded leading the blindfolded. I suppose it...
