This book has taught me that if we utilize empathy over compassion, we will experience an empathy-burnout or empathy-fatigue. If we utilize true compassion, we will not become fatigued or empty our vessel; our compassion will overflow.
It's like you are a child, or a teenager again, experiencing a growth spurt. You can no longer fit into the same clothes that you used to wear, because you're outgrowing them. You need new clothes that fit you properly in your growing, evolving body, and you will have to let go of those old clothes that have become too snug.
The extraordinary experience of being alive that exists in your heart begins with self-love, and self-love begins when you truly believe that you deserve it for yourself.
In a previous article about the mysterious something we call "happiness", I talk about how happiness is allowing ourselves to feel joy and gratitude for the present moment. In order for us to awaken our happiness, we must train our minds into being grateful for everything we are experiencing right now. Here's a quick video to [...]
Immediately after my awakening, I discovered the secret of the Universe. I found that this secret exists inside all of us within our consciousness, and you can rediscover the secret for yourself.

In my previous post, I talked about my time as an Atheist and my relationship with my spirituality prior to awakening. That relationship has always been strong, especially during all of the doubt, skepticism, and questioning. I have 3 questions for you today. SCENARIO 1: Imagine that you believe Nothing happens during and immediately after death. [...]
Chances are that if you clicked on this, and you're interested in spirituality vs religion, this message is for you! Religion says, "Do." Spirituality says, "Be." As I've started to open up to people in my life about my awakening, the very first thing that has been projected onto me from my atheist friends is, [...]
The present moment is a conscious experience that mutually arrives and departs. How do we become present when it's in constant, evolving movement, arriving and departing, over and over? You are in the present moment when you are aware that it is both arriving and departing in an endless cycle of change. You are in the present [...]
During my dark days, the only relationship that my mind cared about was my relationship with my suffering. I was living in past trauma instead of celebrating and being grateful for my present life. I didn't know this, and it was something that I needed to learn on my own, but looking back, I would [...]
If you obsess over conspiracy theories, you are missing the point. If you worry about death and what the nature of your death will be like, you aren't celebrating the life you're living now. If you are consumed by the thought that you are being externally controlled by negative forces, you lose valuable energy that [...]
Yesterday, I talked about how your Life's Waiting to Begin. I said that you have more control over your life than you think. In fact, you create your own reality. How to Create Your Own Reality I want to clarify that your mind is not your brain. Your brain is a part of your body, [...]
"The Adventure" by Angels and Airwaves is a gorgeous song, and there's so much power and truth in the lyrics. About ten years ago, Tom Delonge had a spiritual awakening, and moved away from Blink 182 to form Angels and Airwaves. It's no coincidence that Tom's reputation has been tarnished and torn apart after leaving [...]
Experiencing Heightened Sensory Information I understand why people change their names after experiencing an awakening. Saying, "I feel like a completely different person" is an understatement. In my very first post, I explained my awakening. The day after, I woke up, lied in bed, and wondered if what I had experienced the night before was real. [...]
After completing over 4,500 episodes of the highest rated talk show in American television history, Oprah Winfrey said that one of the most valuable things she's learned is that all of the 30,000+ participants who appeared on the show had one thing in common. They all wanted validation. (Video where she speaks about validation.) On [...]
Throughout my life, I’ve had several near-death experiences. The tale that I’m about to recount is an experience where I should have been more injured than I had been, and it’s also a significant example of what-not-to-do at a bonfire. *Do not put yourself in danger to test if your Divine Guides will protect you. [...]
In Part One of this series about suffering, trauma, and drama, I broke down the definitions of each experience and discussed how they are interconnected. Suffering doesn't have to be a negative or positive experience; it's completely subjective. But suffering is a relationship. It's a relationship between you and the drama from your trauma. The relationship [...]
The title of this article is quite loaded, yes. But every word in the title is so important for the message I have today. I want to talk about three separate but interconnected terms that each affect how we experience our reality and prevent us from doing proper inner work to elevate our consciousness. The [...]
A couple days after my awakening and reading through Audrey's words that she had given me, I started receiving messages from My Team and Higher Self to create my own meaningful messages. I was meditating and actively thinking about how I could explain a lot of things that I learned when I awakened. I wrote [...]
