These are the voyages of You on a continuous mission: to explore strange new perspectives that may test your conditioning, to seek out a new authentic life where you can live with ease, and to boldly go where you could only dream of going before. Through Self-Love, we can heal our hearts and our collective world experience.
For a long long time, we have been waiting for someone to rescue the world and us. But the Hopi Elders boldly proclaimed that, “we are the ones we have been waiting for.” We all feel this in our hearts and souls, but don’t know what to do about it, or how to even start. This can be confusing and frustrating. While the answer is simple, the path of self-realization is not necessary an easy journey. The answer is that it starts with You. Gandhi said, “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.”
This is not to say that you are broken, beyond that of any other human, and need to be fixed. Perhaps there is a possibility that you are simply like a monolith of marble, and your true inner beauty has not been revealed yet. The great artist Michelangelo said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set it free. Every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the work of the sculptor to discover it.” Please consider the possibility that You are both the sculptor and the marble.
Be open to new possibilities, but work to confirm them in your own direct experience. It is only then that they become real for you. In his book, Walden, Thoreau says, “I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws will be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings. In proportion, as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
In her book, A Return to Love, Marianne Williamson says, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
The purpose of this website is to help guide people and organizations to living with ease. This is not to say that life will always be easy, but it is to say that your reaction to life events is more important than the events themselves. The approach is to “know thyself” by stripping away layers of conditioning and delusion (unnecessary marble). The perspectives, programs, tools, and information on this site provide a set of concrete elements that can help You put the foundation under your castles. We intend to provide a platform separate from the daily noise, in order to gain an objective understanding of ourselves and how we relate.
