Jason Mraz – Love for a Child

Mental health and happiness are elusive things for most people. The problem is our modern capitalist societies have convinced us that to be happy we have to buy products. In the process the true core of happiness, which is aligned, positive, self-identity, is lost. What’s worse, our search for happiness is turned into a desperate drive to have more, and more, and more. The GRAND ILLUSION is that all this purchase is what makes us who we are. However it is not true. True happiness only comes from finding out who you really are, and living in alignment with that self.

The Child Empath As children, we are all naturally empathic. As children, we are all highly sensitive to the environment and empathic to life around us. The problem for us all is that, as we grow up, a toxic and violent "system" beats the empathy out of us and we...

What to do if your spouse is an empath

As children, we are all naturally empathic. That is, as children, we are all highly sensitive to the environment and connected to life that surrounds us. The problem for all of us is that, as we grow up, a toxic and violent "system" beats the empathy out of us. As we...

The Evil/Critical Ego

One of the first ideas that we come across when we start a spiritual journey is the idea that the "ego" is the enemy of our spiritual progress. This notion is especially prevalent in Eastern traditions, where annihilation of the ego is often seen as a necessary step...

Are Scientists Spiritual

There is an erroneous assumption, really more of an indoctrinated meme, that scientists are, by virtue of their higher intelligence and rationality, essentially atheist. As it turns out, it is not true. While scientists usually reject Big Religion, they don’t reject spirituality.

Right Expression of Anger (spiritual anger management)

Anger can be a difficult topic to deal with, especially for the spiritually minded. Many prophets and pundits would have us believe that anger is a bad thing, or that it should be suppressed, or redirected. But that’s not true. Anger is a functional part of the physical unit and if you’re angry the solution isn’t to press it down and pretend you are not, the solution is to confront the source of the anger and deal with that directly. Anything else and you’re just asking for dysfunction, disease, and death.
