Like I mentioned in my last article, “Why We Meet the People We Meet”, I am fan of the many creation stories that exist out there. Many of these stories tell a tale of Source existing in a formless space of darkness. Source had always been there, unencumbered by the constraints of the illusion of […]

When we were little we used to make bets by crossing our pinkie fingers. These bets were binding, social contracts that we honored religiously (especially if they involved morning loaf in boarding school), and are one of my earliest lessons on honor and keeping my word. I’d never questioned why we used our pinkie fingers […]

He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. Matthew 5:45 If the world worked the way we expected it to, we’d have a guy operating the sun like a steam engine, deciding who deserved the sun’s glory to shine upon them every […]

When you have a social engagement with someone and you call to ask where they are and they say, “I am en route,” they obviously haven’t even left, right? We all know that one person who continually arrives at the office late and disheveled, tie in one hand, a comb in the other – first […]

When we are driven by ego and fear, our natural disposition is to seek control over people and situations. Relationships are perfect ground for exerting such control whether consciously or unconsciously, because it is in relating with others that the ego feels most vulnerable to rejection and disapproval.

I finally started on my new year’s fitness routine. I got an app that reminds me to drink water throughout the day and keeps a graph of how well I’m doing. I’m currently on the 20th percentile, meaning that I’m only managing to drink two out of the recommended eight glasses a day. It’s fairly hot […]

I just don’t have the time When it comes to self-growth this is probably the biggest lie you have been telling yourself. You enumerate all your responsibilities and conclude that self-growth belongs in the bottom pile. The irony is that self-growth is pivotal to the improvement of your life and the more effort you put […]
