Five Keys to Living Awakening

Welcome Back! This the first video in the 10 day sequence. Arjuna will talk about the Five Keys to Living Awakening, see if you can identify each key as he explains it. When you have watched all of the video, we’d love to read your questions and in the box below. In a few days you will receive a link to the next video in the sequence, which will guide you into your own direct experience of awakening.

Watch for these five keys:

Key #1: (2:14) What is the split that we’ve been conditioned to believe in?

Key #2: (2:40) What is the “big breakthrough?”

Key #3: (6:50) What is the essence of what all these highly successful people have learned?

Key #4: (7:52) How do we need to change our understanding of practice?

Key #5: (9:27) What is the greatest mistake that we all make at this time?

    Dear Arjuna, I am fast becoming a fan 🙂
    I am ready to go deeper- for over a year I havve kept coming back to that awareness that to find what has been “brewing inside me”, I will have to go deeper within.

    After reading your latest book and exploring your website, I am really intrigued about what you are bringing forward.

    I am looking forward to uncovering my balanced life. Many thanks for the techniques and valuable lessons I keep discovering with each video I tune into!

    Thank you, Arjuna, this makes sense. And so clearly expressed. I have this jittery feeling, reading the book and listening to you, that I can make many important changes in my life, and in a faster pace than over the years before. I am trained in Zen Coaching, which is very much in line with Awakening Coaching. But I will do your training too, ie because of the tools you have created.

    Thank you, Arjuna!

    I first “met” you within the Video “Awakening – Ein Reiseführer…” and I was so much attracted to you because of your clear and well pronounced words, the clarity of what you said.

    I have been searching for years: why am I on this planet? Is there a deeper purpose of my life? Are there any plans for me? And if so: who is keeping the treads in his hand?

    I have tried to meditate, but I can’t. Can’t shut up my mind… I find inner peace through classical music. Maybe that is MY way of meditation?

    I have consulted socalled healer and paid a lot of money. They promised to know my purpose of life. Well, they didn’t. And what they told me was so general, that I could have told that to myself.

    I have read books by Jerry and Esther Hicks, listended to “Abraham”, watched “the secret” and “Law of attraction” and so on. But they all seem to miss something or I find it very difficult to follow the rules.

    I have seen quite a few of your little videos on youtube by now. In every one you say: living the awakening is easy. But in no one I find a guide: That’s how you do it! I hope, that with the next videos or articles you’ll explain more, HOW to do it.

    I work with horses and give riding lessons to grownup women in their fifties. The lessons a special, because I don’t just want them to ride. I want them to feel the horse, have empathy. I teach them to communicate with the animals by positive thoughts and with emotion.

    So I may be on the right path and hope to find the “missing link” to a deeper understanding how things are connected.

    Thank you very much for your time and effort to share your experiences with all the people around the world. And sorry for my poor English.

    Lots of love
    Karin

    Dear Arjuna, Thank you so much for the video. Something relaxed inside when you talked about taking things not personal. I heard this before and tried to follow the invitation, but as an active doing. Now listening to the greater context of what is happening in the world there was a let go, a kind of “undoing” of not taking things personal.
    First I watched you at the “buddha at the gas pump” interview and loved what you said about the coaching. I have seen a few teachers and although I could see, hear, feel the truth and experienced some wonderful mystic changes in life (mostly let goes..), I always felt some kind of discomfort with the master/disciple situation. It felt like giving up responsibility. Your approach seems to be perfectly balanced between all the opposites that seemed to be mutually incompatible. Thank you! I am looking forward to what comes next….

    Thank you very much for this Video,Arjuna! I find a lot ofideas, that are very similar to the teachings I learned in Oneness University in India, where I became a Deekshagiver. But it seems to me, that you will give a new way, how we can integrate the state of beeing awakend in our daily life and I am looking forward very much to your next teachings!
    Thank you!

    Thank you Arjuna for this video. I have read your book about awakening into Oneness. I loved it very much and I am on path to experience more of this. I’m going to Deeksha evenings with several others in Enschede (Holland) It’s my dream to go to the tempel in India once. But first I want to become a Deeksha-giver. This video is also a way of going into awakening for me. Thanks again.
    Namaste, Fineke

    Dear Arjuna:
    Thank you very much for this beautiful course online.

    I was thinking of going to India to the Oneness University, but lately I’ve had some doubts, mainly about what Bhagavan says (and also Osho says) in relation that the enlightenment has to be given to humans. How, then, found it Buddha, Jesus and many others?

    I would appreciate very much your comment.
    Blessings.

    Dear Adhuna, thank for the chance to participate on your course for free! After years of looking for a connection between my experiences in medidation, shamanic travelling, quests and my everydaylife I feel like finding the keys in your offering of awakening living. Thank you for this gift! I am really looking forward for the next videos! I AM part of divine loving, that`s I am longing for, even in my everydaylife and the projects which may envolve…
    With all my love

    Hi Arjuna,

    I just “discovered” you today … at a 2nd hand bookstore on 4th St. in San Rafael, where I bought your book, “Relaxing into Clear Seeing.” I’m excited about the book!
    I was hoping that you might still be in Marin (doesn’t seem so …) and even teaching meditation or classes on relaxing deeply. These days I’m drawn (back) to Yoga Nidra and considering maybe teaching this someday. But think I need more knowledge and skills. (And maybe that isn’t exactly where my life is leading me…)
    In any case, Arjuna … what I’d like is a deeply profound experience of Clear Seeing. I have various meditation practices that I do, etc., but wonder if you have any thoughts or recommendations, perhaps of meditation teachers in my area.
    Thank you for your book and for this free video series. So far, the teachings make sense and seem very positive and encouraging.
    Peace to you,
    Ruby Jane

    dear arjuna,
    I was with you last weekend here in hamburg. I was deeply touched.

    i have the experice of awakened states since the age of 4.at that time I had a very deep connection to jesus. in 1971 with 18 I started with TM. from the very beginning I experienced awakenend states for a longer time. but at that time I’didnt know to name it :-). I wanted that everybody has “that” what I couldn´t explaine with words. I became a TM-teacher, had a lot of mystical experiences and a lot of concepts, that these experiences are only possible with so called spiritual work in connection with a master. on the other side I also experieneced this limitless joy and love during my daily life – when I was just living without thinking about it.
    but in my mind this was not allowed to be, because the normal life is not spirituell. in 1997 I wanted to make siuzide it didnt work because the devine showed me what my true nature and there is no difference between life and death just two side of the unmanifest. I call the state “me without me” since then. i had a nervious-brakedown, was in therapy etc. but nobody could help, not even the tm-people. after many years in conflict with the living of both sides of the story and not being able to live them at the same time I met in 2006 an ZANKO – he comes from bulgaria he is the total antitype of a guru. he calls himself a tool of the existence to help us to see what he has found. his teaching is very simple but very deep and effective. he always told me that I’m already there. since that time the 2 sides of the coin came more and more together. but still he was a man and for me a little bit too macho :-).

    but “time” works always for us. almost 3 years ago must husband left me after 33 years with an other women. the best thing what could happen. since that time future doesn#T exist anymore. and much more happend since the death of my father time has completely gone. since about 1,5 years I realized more and more that everything happens automatically and when I do not engage everything is perfect. my whole life is totally perfect and guided by the devine.

    still I want that evereybody has this state permanently. so I did all the time a lot of self-experiments and a lot of technics and methods etc..I was looking for a simple way to let the people experience their true nature. and then I was sitting in front of you. how increadable simple. so I am looking forward to the rest of the course. and hopefully to see you in april.
    thank you and your people for taking care of me. they ask me so nicely whether everthing is ok because I didn’t start so far. but sometimes I am a little slower as other people :-).
    have a nice evening and let me embrace you

    Dear Arjuna,

    Since I discovered you on “Buddha at the gas pump”, each time I hear you, you reveal that witch I am longing to live. No separation whatsoever between being awakened and everyday life. I always felt that this must be like this. That the full love power that I am can be expressed freely in everyday life with all my gifts and talents.
    That all is one – expressing itself trough my colors and revealing the colors of others by knowing them pure potential.
    Hopefully I’ll join the first awakening training in Germany with you.
    Grateful love,
    Berta

    Dear Arjuna,
    I really felt in tune with what u said on the video, the integration of spiritual well being and a life in the materiel world is of upmost importance. I recently watched your interview with Rick Archer on Batgap.com and was immediately inspired to get in touch. I’ve been reading The Translucent Revolution over the past few days now and it amazes me as to how many people are waking to their true nature! The “Shift” has not yet happened here, even though I’ve been inquiring into Nonduality over the last 10 years and did TM 25 years before that! Becoming an Awakening coach feels like something that I could do. Will see what unfolds. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity…

    I watched your interview on batgap, sincronicity working at its best 🙂 What you are so brilliantly describing is exactly what is “going on”. No more doubts about it! The true revolution everyone needs is right there: more peaceful fullfilled human beings in the world, contributing, through their specific charateristic, to recognize this world, this time, this place as Nirvana itself.
    The way out is the way in, once someone said,
    Let”s hop in for the ride and a wonderful journey to everyone!

    Hi Arjuna,
    Amazing!insight. You described my life situation to a tee in your 1st clip.
    16 yrs ago my heart was opened and my mind silenced (thanks to the great books of Murdo Macdonald Bayne “Beyond The Himalaya’s” and “The Yoga of the Christ”) Although my life is great ,my life situation sucked due to my total neglect and disinterest of the relative world .Your wonderful interview on
    ” Buddha at the Gas Pump” has been a revelation and “wake up”call for me to become more intergrated with the insights you covered .Thanks a Million for Being.

    Thank you Arjuna for your generosity, sharing that brilliance with words that vibrate the light and truth directly. I trust that knowing that comes not from the linear/logical mind but some kind of knowing beyond mind. Recognizing this in your videos and interview with Rick Archer on Batgap dot com I feel lifted to a new direction I prayed would unfold for me to somehow be part of the breakthrough at this historical time in evolution. My “stories” tell me I am too old (83) my gifts not recognized, let alone know how to give, and other “chatter” that I would be welcome to have a coach’s guidance. I know a conclusion closes the door to any potential being activated and would like to become aware of some of the hidden concepts of belief that hold me back. Thank you again for the way you freely offer this taste of your work. Coaching is So Not Hierarchical. Yay
    and bows 🙂

    Dear Arjuna

    Thank you for your sharing.
    I am going into these ten days with an open heart and an open mind.

    But still there is fear. Fear that through this path we may actually be delaying surrendering deeply and with confidence into the identification with pure awareness.

    I understand though that until we are ready to do that, we must spiritualise our lives so that we are not feeling split.
    That all our actions must serve one higher goal.

    But I am afraid of losing this goal in sight as I engage more in the world and start developing new desires and aversions in the name of awakening.

    So I guess in this paragrah I state all of my conditionings related to this subject.

    With much love and respect
    Melissa

    Thank you!
    After many years of devoted meditation practise, full time at a temple and as a ‘lay person’ I was given the gift of giving birth to 2 wonderful children (late in life). This caused a split since the spiritual tradition I belonged to was very geared towards monastic practise. For 10 years I have been on a very lonely quest to integrate the ‘split’ between wordly life and a deep spiritual practise, to become one. And rejoiced in it. However, not been able to really, on a deeper level, share that view with others. Finding you online, offering your tremendously powerful and beautiful ‘teaching’ makes me totally happy. I thank you deeply. And so very much look forward to participate further. For all reasons thinkable.

    Dear Arjuna,
    Thank you so much for the knowledge you are sharing here with us. It’s extremely important for me at this very moment of my life. Joining the two ways of living is actually the answer I was looking for. I experienced the ‘wall’ in my life trying to choose one of them, since I couldn’t find the way to integrate them into one. Thank you for the love and support that reveals through your work.
    Best wishes, Kasia

    Arjuna,

    I am very interested in your approach. I have been a serious seeker for a number of years. I have attended a number of silent retreats with Gangaji, Adyashanti, and Eckhart Tolle. I meditate between 2 hours and 11 hours a day, not out of duty but out of (I can’t think of why, but it is definitely on the pleasure side). I have let a lot go, I feel I abide more and more in not knowing and not needing to know. I have a family and successful small businesses which I attend to on a need to basis. I feel I am on the edge of awakening. I have a sense of awareness, I abide on the edge but I have yet to cross the line into full awakening. I read an account of awakening with Arjuna written by Phil Servedio from San Rafael and this definitely got my interest. I sort of feel like I am running out of pavement, I have studied, read tons of spiritual books, meditated, gone to lots of retreats all of which have been wonderful, but I am yet to awaken. I hope you can point me in the right direction.

    Thank you – Rick

I just starting to do some changes of the way I was seeing myself and my live, and I started experience and discovering tha most amazing results. I can’t wait to see the next video! Thank you for your effort, time and enormous care and love to help us to find our deepest true and share this world in a peaceful happy way!

    Dear, Arjuna . . .

    I´m from Argentina, a beautiful country where people used to be very helpful and supportive. Nowadays everyone is in a rush with lot of stress and looking for his/her own “business”. However a collective awakening seems to be growing as people is has people have turned to the search of their inner divinity. So I hope that we manage to overcome the split between spirituality and materialism. I think that our big breakthrough would be to change our minds attaché to the “kingdom” of all what has a “form” by getting more get conscious of our limitless being, our soul. With the examples of the successful people that you show through your video, people that were able to reconvene at a unit by conscious awakening. The daily practice of the inner search will help us to discover the deepest dimension of ourselves and to change the breakdown for the breakthrough. Thank you very much Arjuna for helping us with so much love and enthusiasm in this task

    Thank you for this video and a chance to gain some insight into the questions that keep coming into consciousness.

    This has been a very strong sense for the last few months regarding changes. Not financial, but my belief about financial. I have continued to give away my services, Reiki and spiritual counseling. Lately I realized there was nothing wrong with asking to get paid. The process has been humbling. But I cannot pay rent on free services. 🙂

    Bless you Arjuna for your hard work and this opportunity to confirm my direction.

    on one side the things you`re talking about are so familiar to me and on the other side i feel a deep greatfulness to you for reminding me and puting it in such clear words. For me it`s a great support to hear that all over the world people are awakening and i am experiencing the awakening process in myself, nothing personal……..

    Dear Arjuna
    What touches most – when i listen to you- is, that i feel you mean ME when u talk – perhaps the ME in everyone… i feel resonance from the heart…and i felt relief by hearing that the split must not be there
    i realized, that i have no interest anymore in poverty or feeling poor… and my mind is conditioned in that way – that i have to be poor and away from normal life.. in order to fullfill my longing for coming home to god
    actually there is a core belief – or identity – that i am worthless, ugly, poor, and guilty anyway, no matter what i am doing.
    thats not me!!!! – i cannot see my beauty when this is active. all my wisdom and beauty is burried.
    i love how you share what you have..
    with that negative – identity i hold back giving – like it is anyway worthless what i am giving……
    i want to share all presence and wisdom and beauty coming through me, i feel joy by thinking doing so.
    thank you for the abundance and beauty you share – and here comes an other thought reaction – “you have it and i not”… thats the victim identity- the poor one — it must be possible for me too!!!!!! i love the encouragement in your talk.
    with love and apreciation

    I understand the conditioning you described as a “split”. Being raised in a tradional christian home, I came to believe that making a lot of money somehow meant that I wouldn’t be “Christian” anymore. Those words were never said, only implied, mainly at church. I am discovering just how powerful that message has been. My limiting beliefs have determined my behavior and, although I know that at some level, I haven’t learned how to change that on a consistent basis. I am looking forward to the next video…

    Hello, Arjuna . . .

    Great light, inviting energy from you on this important message…
    I offer here a balancing view on “the rift” between worldly excellence and evolution, for those that think they may be betraying one thing or the other.
    Historically, Some mystic paths actually emphasize effectiveness in the world to be both a foundational, commonsense prerequisite and a useful tool for evolution…Specifically, Gurdjieff – the wily Russian-Armenian mystic, and his counter-ambassador, Ouspensky referred on occasion to their preference to work with people who were just basic “good householders” over ungrounded spiritualists…Rodney Collin, another ambassador from that line once wrote that it might be a better candidate for the Work – someone who had a clear aim to succeed in writing a very good play, over one who kept hammering at the eternal questions and paradoxes.
    Ramesh Balkesar, a notable representative of Adavaita Vedanta, though he came to the “I am That” realization later in life…still maintained his role as a notable Indian banker and championship golfer…And so it goes…
    It seems that the universe is very colorful in allowing and inviting playwrights, prisoners, prisoners, rich bankers, into the game…

    The biggest difference for me during this time, is that never have so many people been so encouraging of each other, starting where we are, to live out their best possible destiny in all areas of their life…Cheers

    Hi Arjuna!
    This is really really good! I can recognize myself so deeply when you describe the split between the inner world and outer world and how deeply that had effected me and driving me the last years. Im so greatful you bring up this topic and I have felt this struggle inside of me, in my relationships, life choices for many years.

    And the solution seems so “simple”, which I also love. To bring it here, more into the body, more into presence, more into everyday life, through practice. And see the link. I have sensed in my mantra meditation etc nowadays that I do get more grounded, connected and here, but I never made the link how its all connected.

    Therefore Im looking forward to your taking part of your upcoming videos, links etc.

    Its such a profound, important, challenging topic this one and I feel so honoured and bless to take part of it. I feel its still challening for an aspect of me who feel safe to be small and I feel another aspect of me just bow bow bow deeply.

    Thank you for sharing your GIFTS!

    In my opinion, it is not about not taking anything personally. It is about non attachment to blaming others (or self)when we do take what could be called negative things personally…. ie, we get ‘triggered’, deal with it (like Elizabeth did) and then say thank you.
    AND not becoming dependent upon compliments etc from others, when we take the ‘positive’ things personally. ie…Praise & accolades are welcomed, but not identified as ‘needed’ (as the ego would like!)
    I am an individual person. I am also a boundless spirit. If I take nothing personally, it is easy to slip into ‘hiding in God’/ the Oneness, and so one’s individuated soul misses chances to grow. I have seen this both in myself and in many other ‘spiritual’ people.
    We are indeed in a time of the two worlds of spirit and matter merging:-) Thanks for your focus on this Arjuna 🙂

    The very first thing you mentioned in the video is what I am working to achieve in my life today. I feel discouraged sometimes that it is not possible to do both and that in order to be truly successful you have to focus on one part of the goal at a time. I am a medical school student and I struggle to be successful, I am also older so I want to have a family and inner joy also. I want to be a great doctor, mother and wife. The dean of the school is absolutely positive that there is not room for anything other than our studies. I know that what he says makes sense but I cannot stop yearning for a full life right now, I also know that real life obstacles present themselves often. I would like to have it all, not later but, right now and accomplishing my goals also. I am confident I can connect my purpose with my body and understand the trials I face with a much better perspective thanks to the ideas presented in this video.
    Thank you

    Thank you Arjuna for your gift. I have been struggling with this many years especially since I was involved in a classic yoga practice which seemed to need me to deny pleasure (and pain). To bypass the ‘worldly enticements’ and go straight for the infinite experience. I have recently suspected that some unconscious beliefs around this have sabotaged my efforts to find a love partner. And my work in the world has been more of a dry ‘dharmic’ efforting pursuit. It sounds so much more balanced to embrace the physical joyfully while being rooted in the spiritual. Spirit made me a luscious bright woman and I want to wholeheartedly express my gifts unreservedly into the world – and to receive the world’s gifts. I am so glad that there is this wonderful shift occurring. and that you and other wonderful teachers are ringing the bell. ~S

    Hi! I don’t know why, when I get to the 8th minute the video stops and gives me an option to “replay”, but doesn’t let me go beyond. I’m curious to know what you say in the end.Thank you!

    All my needs are met,and I have no desire to make lots of money and I’m not sure if I really want to be famous.
    For the last 10 or so years I’ve been aware that I’m part of a bigger plan. My bliss shows up when I use my native drum, a song line comes in between the beats, and I get folks to join in.

    This is so timely and right. I have been feeling the strong desire to incorporate my spiritual/mystical growth into my life in the world, in real tangible and practical ways, in my day-to-day interactions with others. I already do this of course just by being myself, but am finding the urging from within (and now from you!) to do it in more focused and open ways. I am ready to put myself and my wisdom out there so people can really benefit from it. No more hiding my light under a bushel.

    Thank you for this gift. Thank you for caring about our awakening.I have been a member of Oneness University for years and have been passionate about being liberated from all the untruths that have such a hold on us/me. I must have had lifetimes as a hermit meditating in a cave as I would be very comfortable with meditating all day if I could. But I am more fascinated with the possiblity of living in the world in an awakened state with likwise people. Blessings, Shulamit

    Dear Mr Ardag:

    The video is quite nice and excellent to start with. I am in Oneness Movement since 1996 and recently I had a darshan of Sri Bhagawan when he gave “Nayana Deeksha” for Enlightenment and I felt the Silence in me for a long time. I look forward to your forthcoming videos and shall seek clarifications, if any.

    That’s all at present.

    Dear Arjuna, I’m very greatful for the gift you’re giving – videos, courses, retreats. However your words always shift me out of my role as a victim and encourage me when I’m lost in despair having the impression that I cannot get into the awakening, when I get stuck, still deeply asleep. But whatever you say and explain – it was always inside – I cannot feel a sceptical point of view inside, just every cell cries YES, that is how it works – I’m longing for that for my whole life – and then again my ego comes along and says “haha, what are you thinking you’re going to live there??!!” – so I’m really looking forward for all the exercises and I know that I won’t give up even when I’m struggeling due to the ego-resistance inside. Thank you for the clue not to take everything too personally :-))so it is easier not to get flodded by the own emotions and destructive thoughts. Thank you very much… I’m practicing all the time.

    Dear Arjuna, Thank you so much for this video! I am very excited about this course, seems to be perfect timing for me since these are the things cooking within me this period of time. How to align my desire for spiritual awakening with thriving in life.

    You have taken an extremely complex concept and simplified at last! I now understand that I am not alone and the Universe is not ganging up on me! I Am a part of this current collective evolution. Thank you. Your teachings have given me a fresh perspective and strengthened my faith.

    Dear Arjuna,

    I am encouraged by your enthusiasm + suggestion, that it can be easy to move into this space of awakened conciousness + settle there. I am a practicioner for a great many years by now + I have tasted this liberated realm to the extent, that I know now, it exists + that opening this door fully + keeping it open can become a reality in this life for me too, although the ‘sweet’ experience of it is not permanent yet. I am afraid,
    to an extent I still lack the necessary discipline for a breakthrough. Also, I might take my commitment to family life still too personal, since it does’nt come without moments of depression + suffering yet. On the other hand, slowly my earnest spiritual persuit tends to rubb off favorably here + there.

    My heart is grateful for your help.

    Thank you, thank you for the generosity of your spirit. Right now, this is so much needed for all humanity to come collectively. But I run into conflicts because I see the cruelty that is going on not just from one human being to another; but to all living beings of various species. It is challenging for me now for needing to take a leave of abscense in my studies of acupuncture due to finances. Other plans are being made in order for me to move on and ahead.

    Thank you for that wonderful video. The last point you made about not taking things personally – I slightly disagree with. Recently I was in a big argument with my partner. I was deeply hurt by something he said. Over the course of the next few days my ego put up wall after wall – until I read something that changed my perspective. Everything that happens in your life is called into your life by you. There was a nugget of gold to be found from this painful situation by examining my own personal role within it; I had created this conflict to realize that I had some belief systems that were no longer serving me and this was a manifestation of those. So I examined them deeply and discovered so much about myself – this exploration lead to a massive internal clean up and I felt a huge internal shift. It was brilliant. I feel that if I did not take it “personally” and use it to self examine, I would have lost the blessing in the pain. What do you think?
    Thank you so much for your work!
    Best to you,
    Liz

    Arjuna,

    I like what you are saying, I’ve struggled with the apparent paradox of Spirituality and a Successful Life. There is confusion in older writings “Release all, become enlightened, have all”. It honestly makes me crazy. You’re description of joining “Enlightenment with a Full Rich Life” is exactly what I intuitively believe (and what I’m looking for) but anything I’ve read/studied (and it has been extensive) up till now left me scratching my head. Your timing was perfect when you mentioned not taking things personally as that is what I did, your explanation as to how we are in a transitional period and things are better interpreted as effecting the “Collective” rather than the individual put me “immediately” back on track. Also you mention the switching of masculine and feminine energies and I have been feeling this for about a year now and I can’t really explain it, I’m just feeling the fluctuation.

    Those are my thoughts for now, looking forward to the next email.

    Craig

      I am reading the translucent revolution and with more insight from your videos, i have come back to myself. my thoughts as a child which had been covered with layers of past experiences, are coming to light again. i have been connecting with what i am reading and hearing deep within to my covered truths. the biggest challenge was silencing of my mind, thoughts, what ifs… mental masturbation as i refer to it. i have more peace these days, with spikes of what ifs recognized sooner faster and put aside. my past conflict of understanding of religions to accepting spirituality as a base has allowed me to believe in the universal consciousness. letting go of the thought of to need to save people and recognizing that, to being more of a guide and support as they struggle with their paths, not my job, however my essence, a giant heart to be shared and to guide possibly.. the biggest joy for me is the wealth of information that you have gathered from the multitude of interviews and insights of the collective, not just one way or thought process to be THE path, however as with all the religions, all of them assimilated with their commonalities and each new different piece that fits in for me as it resonates deep within as new windows unfold, as i gain confidence in my powerful intuition to trust myself again and to accept my truths as they continue to surface and bring the pieces of my wholeness back as one..i am excited for my continued journey and give thanks to the continued and each new spark i receive with this unfolding.. it is challenging to bring it and live it into my daily life, worth it as i feel the changes as i strive to the unconditional or ALOHA within me and around me, i am grateful…
