Enlightenment

Strategies for how to live after spiritual awakening. Navigating the pitfalls and peculiar challenges of the post-enlightenment transition. What’s sex like after awakening?

How to deal with a sudden and profound lack of any sense of self, motivation or context.

Practical advice for newly enlightened people who want to know how to engage in life again and not end up a spiritual hermit or guru.

Being Human

Get to know your way around the Human Mental Apparatus. You’re not who you think you are. Where do your thoughts come from? Are they even yours? Do you allow an inner Narrator to stand as a filter between you and every perception, every feeling, every experience? Are you able to self-regulate your thoughts and moods? Are you able to choose your perspective?

Your mind isn’t the enemy. It’s just a tool you haven’t learned to use.

Expanded Perception

The archaic term “psychic” is often used to describe a host of Ultra Sensory abilities. Some of us are born this way: clairvoyant, telepathic, and so on. Sometimes we suddenly gain abilities, or have them dramatically enhanced after spiritual enlightenment or Kundalini activation.

This is not awesome. This is disruptive and sometimes quite frightening. It can also be really hard on the body, if you don’t find ways to mediate the peculiar energy that often comes with these abilities.
