Intelligent Spirituality + Human Potential

Are you still operating from your mind’s default mode?

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?

We’re thrust into this human vehicle at birth without any kind of manual on how to operate it. It’s never too late to learn.

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