The Evolution of Compassion

Developing compassion has been on my mind lately and I’d like to take a few moments to share some thoughts that have occurred to me. I hope that they may assist in your own understanding and growth. Respecting the Relativity of Truth We start by understanding a working definition of compassion as something that is developed through a deep understanding of another being’s reality. True compassion can only come from a realization of their truth. In other words compassion can only come from surrender of our personal ego perspective. It is only once we let go of our own ego/belief …

Insight from Fight Club

    In light of the review of Revolver I’ve decided to review one of my other favorite psychological movies/books that has always intrigued me and that is Fight Club. Fight Club taught me to think for myself and challenge social norms that might not be in our best interest and to therefore transcend ego limitations.  (This review will be based off the film since I don’t have the book with me at this time)    The movie is focused around Robert Norton’s character ‘the narrator’ or ‘Jack’ going through continual life crisis situations to be liberated of all ego …

Have Courage and Accept Your Greatness

It takes a lot of courage to make a change in your life. It takes a lot of courage to be loving instead of acting in fear and reaction. The topic of courage has recently come to my mind as I realize that it takes a lot of courage to stand strong in truth and in what we believe is true happiness and peace of mind. Sometimes I get frustrated because I don’t understand how anyone could not see that their behavior is detrimental to their happiness, relationships, and the planet. But it makes sense when I contemplate the concept …

How to Build Community

Educate yourself on “The Story of Stuff”

The Story of Stuff This is an amazing site full of amazing information on what is going on behind the scenes of our government and corporations. Click the link above. It provides us with the most powerful thing there is, the truth. Watch the videos and let your mind be blown away by the information. It is so important that we know the consequences of our behavior. I think that people don’t generally want to hurt the planet and other people they just don’t realize that they are. Which is all the more reason why we need to be educated …

We are ALL Connected

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while and have been thinking about how I wanted to go about it for months now. I finally decided I will just go for it and try to give it to you in a way that is simple and plain. I could go into the science of this concept and all the evidence and reasoning behind it but first of all, that would take an extreme amount of effort on my part, and second of all, it’s kind of irrelevant if you just understand the concept. This is something that has …

World Peace is Possible

I’d like to start this post off with an amazing speech that was given after learning of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 by Robert Kennedy (click on the title if you’d like to listen to it be delivered, Bobby is an inspiring orator) “Mindless Menace of Violence” “This is a time of shame and sorrow. It is not a day for politics. I have saved this one opportunity, my only event of today, to speak briefly to you about the mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our …

The Concept of the Ego

The first and technically only road block that arises in our path to enlightenment, personal growth, happiness, and fulfillment in our lives is called ego thinking(aka, shadow, “evil”, persona, false self, etc.) The ego is a mindset, a type of thinking, that gives us the thoughts, feelings, and thus circumstances of separateness, fear, powerlessness, and lack in our life. The reason why ego thinking is so important to address, understand, and transcend is because it is the only true barrier to the amazing power that we possess within ourselves. Also it is the only thing stopping us from experiencing endless …
