The Eternal Bliss

When we stop outsourcing happiness and well-being from outside of ourselves we realize that our spirit has all that we need and much more; and in fact so much more that we can’t help but overflow with a contagious joy, a joy that expands and touches all the hearts around us. This joy shining from … More The Eternal Bliss

Diving in God

We run away from that which fills us toward that which drains us; we run away from God which is the source of consciousness and seek objects which consume our consciousness.

How To Meditate

The Art of Effortless Meditation We often approach meditation with a purely utilitarian mindset; we like the way it feels.
