Most human beings have confused the norm of the majority with the truth of the whole. For this reason, we can squeeze ourselves into that norm(which is just a collection of ideas we’re taught to accept without question), even if it’s not true to our individual experience.

But, when we disconnect from what’s true in our heart to go along with the manufactured program of a society, we lose connection to the very power fueling our existence:our spirit.

What’s so ...

Emotional Awareness is the Most Valuable Currency We Have

Posted by:




by: Jamie Rautenberg

Emotional awareness & our ability to consciously feel & integrate the full spectrum of human emotion into our everyday experience as the most valuable currency & power we have at this time. If we can honestly acknowledge our daily emotional experiences in the world with ourselves & others, we’d cease to unconsciously project various forms of violence stemming from undigested feelings towards ourselves & each other.

How We Gain Wisdom from Humility

Posted by:




by: Jamie Rautenberg

The paradox of the human experience is that we gain extraordinary amounts of wisdom through the courageous acknowledgement of our vulnerability, humility and willingness to be wrong.
