Are you seeking blessings? The answer is closer than you might think

I owe everything to my teachers. I am indebted to all the Angels, Guides, plants, animals, people and gems that have come into my life to bless me. I thank you. I honor you with all my heart and soul. If only I could repay you for the debts I have incurred in begging your…

My Angel

My Angel, I will call you Joy, because that is the name I remember from my dream the other night. You came to me lovingly and placed your warm hands to my face and asked me to relax and breathe. I did as you said, and soon we were both flying through the sky —…

I’ve been reading some interesting books lately and one consistent theme that keeps popping up in a variety of ways is the concept of paradigms and knowledge filtering.

God in quality not in quantity

I see a lot of people these days in the conscious community claiming to be God. Yes, we are qualitatively like God, but certainly not in quantity. In other words, our divinity is limited or “marginal”. According to the Vedas, the fact that we are prone to illusion proves that we are limited. If we…
