There is a new current of spiritual perspective based on the direct experience of Truth, or innate remembering of Source as presence in our lives. This understanding has been reflected in wisdom teachings throughout history, but is lately coming into a contemporary form. This is frequently called non-duality, meaning there is only one thing happening although it appears to have many manifestations. Non-Dual teachers or mentors point to the eternal shared source of life, tell us we are not as our conditioned thought concludes we are, and encourage us to know consciousness or awareness or presence in its most elemental and natural form. When we let go of identities and patterns long enough to touch this source it wakes up our hearts, minds and lives. This has been labeled transformation, self-realization, living from our true nature and many other things. It is a natural evolution available to all, but this awakening brings many patterns of change to how we see and live in the world.
There are challenges in releasing all of our old emotional patterns and concepts, which hold us in functional limitations. There is a great blessing of inner freedom and play that arises when these challenges are met.
This blog is about awakening, changing and living an authentic life from the core of what you are. It includes teachings, moments of perception, introductions to insightful books and invitations to share and awaken.
