The Eternal and Infinite Nature of the Self with Rupert Spira

This teacher of non-dualism sheds light on the essential teachings of what is known as “the direct path.” Almost everybody believes that whatever it is we are seeing is something that is outside ourselves. This leads to a most vexing question for science: How is consciousness derived from the brain? No neurologist or brain surgeon has ever found consciousness in the brain. Spira tells us, “The non-dual traditions, in general, suggest that consciousness is not derived from the brain. It’s not a product of matter. In the non-dual traditions consciousness is the primary and fundamental reality. Everything is derived from

Jed Diamond suggests that help can be found through energy healing, “[N]o matter how we got sick, no matter what the problem is, if you can get at the energetic under story and be able to heal things at the energetic level, then, in a sense, you also heal all the chemical actions up here.

The World Is Inside with don Miguel Ruiz

“Many masters have said that every mind is a world, and it’s true. The world we think we see outside of us is actually inside of us. It is just images in our imagination. It’s a dream.  We’re dreaming constantly, and this has been known for centuries, not only in Mexico by the Toltec, but in Greece, in Rome, in India, and Egypt. Who is dreaming this story of your life? You are. If you don’t like your life, if you don’t like what you believe about yourself, you are the only one who can change it. It’s your world,

Faith Without Religion: Bowing To The Mystery Of Life with Roger Housden

  Roger Housden shares with us that keeping faith does not require a religious code or practice “Faith is a wholehearted bodily knowing,” he says. Faith is an aliveness that doesn’t have an explanation. The purpose of life is revealed gradually. When answers are unavailable, faith holds us in place while we wait for them. Simply by trusting the present moment as it opens up to the next, we are expressing faith, love, and generosity. Grace, he suggests, is sitting at the table of the feast of your life. In moments when our idea of our self is tested, the intelligence of

But something stops us from letting our true genius out into the world. Dr. Hendricks has discovered a “nearly universal human tendency to hold ourselves below a certain thermostat setting of how good we can feel, how much love we can experience, how much financial abundance we can

The Search For Wisdom with Jacob Needleman, Ph.D.

For the past 50 years, Jacob Needleman has probed the world of ideas in search of what is wisest in life. Here we explore some of life’s larger questions, such as: When is love born in the human heart? Why is knowledge inseparable from goodness? What does it mean to live in the now? Attention is something that is uniquely human. Needleman says, “When you give your attention to yourself, inwardly, it transforms something, you become another person. When you give your deep attention to another human being, they flourish. The earth needs human attention. Love is an act of giving
