The Enlightenment Trap

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Personal Development, Spirituality

By Steve Clayton Have you ever found yourself correcting someone when they are talking about enlightenment or, more specifically, their own journey towards enlightenment? Do the words you speak come across as being in quotation marks, or do you use quotation marks every time you write something? Do you find yourself wondering if you just […]

The Ego Strikes Back

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Ascension, Personal Development, Spirituality

By Kim Hutchinson The theme this past month, both at work and in my private life, has been ego issues. In addition to an unexpected and decidedly unpleasant encounter with my shadow side, I’ve been drawn into an assortment of ego dramas with clients, friends and family. The ego, it would seem, is out of […]

The Rapture and the Ego

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Angels, Ascension, Spirituality

By Kim Hutchinson With all the recent hype around Judgement Day and the Rapture, I got to thinking about the origins of the concept of Hell.

No Courage in Being Negative

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Personal Development

By Steve Clayton Not too long ago I had my first experience of leaving my body and ego behind and connecting with the universe. In the midst of the beauty, freedom and unadulterated love of the experience, words were of no importance to me. I even felt it so crudely stated, ‘words suck’. For someone who […]

By Steve Clayton My second blog has been much slower in developing than I had originally expected. I could cite the usual reasons: busy work schedule, house maintenance, and my Chios studies.
