The more I read spiritual books on love, abundance, joy, and success, the more I realise how deeply invested I am in expanding my consciousness and the consciousness of others. I’m interested in raising the bar, in performing to a higher standard, in being ever more alert and ever more awake. Everything I’m reading and learning teaches me to release old hurts and resentments, forgive myself and others who’ve hurt me, and get to the joy and freedom behind the walls of unforgiveness.
The more I read these books and reflect on them in my journal, the more I realise that this is what my life is about.
What are we here for? Who sent us here? What must we do, and why must we do it?

I just know that I don’t censor the words that flow forth because I have something to say and it feels necessary to say it. I’m not concerned with talking to everybody because then I’m talking to nobody. I’m just concerned with reaching the soul in search of truth and understanding. [Continue reading]
