A nice thought on getting to source.
No dependence upon letters or words,
But direct pointing to the source of human mind!
No stepping up any ladders,
But mounting straight to the Buddha-land.

Spiritual Marketing 14 y
Some tips on marketing.
The key to successful marketing is no different than the key to success in any area of life, whether relationships, business, health or many other endeavors. The key is to be authentic. To give more than you expect. To have something to share of value other than fluff or spam. People pick up on the energetic of neediness. People can see thru mere attention getting ploys. Marketing your services or products must be about the customer...not about you.
If you are wondering why you are putting out a lot of effort but reaping minimal rewards check the basics.

The Victim Consciousness Loop
There are many clues that we are running a victim painbody loop. Here are some.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we
stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree

been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous
daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

Finding your Inner Teacher
by Shakti Gawain
Once we’ve developed a relationship with our own inner teacher and
guide, we have access to an unerring source of clarity, wisdom, and
direction, right inside us at all times!
How do we follow the path of transformation? One of the first steps is
to establish a personal connection with the universal intelligence, or
higher power. This higher power exists within everything and everyone.
It’s the infinitely wise aspect of our being that simply ”knows”
everything that we need to be aware of at any given time, providing us with

"Struggle is a choice. It is your right and responsibility to

there is always someone there to show you the way."
LETTING GO OF STRUGGLE
Marty Varnadoe Dow
Because the belief in struggle is so strong in our world, I wanted
to share with you a dream I had which helped me to realize struggle was
a choice. At the time I had this dream, I was in a great deal of
emotional pain. I, like most people, believed I needed to suffer in order to
grow. The dream did not change my outside circumstances, but it helped
me see my life in a new way.
In my dream, I was in a room with many other people. In the
process of moving across the room, we had to crawl through a tunnel filled
with bees. It was impo ... read more

Spiritual Coach 14 y
I always suggest that people go within themsleves for theri own spiritual identity and path but for thos e that absolutley feel they need some spiritual "hand holding" then here is a guidline when choosing a spiritual coach.
Pass or Fail?
Although guidelines have been proposed by several religious groups to help would-be seekers decide which path or guru is the highest, almost all of them suffer from a clear case of what sociologists and anthropologists now call ethnocentrism (the tendency to see other people, cultures, religions, solely in terms of one’s own world view). Surely, no critical guide will be exempt from a certain amount of prejudice or bias, but it can be minimized if the template we employ to appraise masters and new movements is ... read more

One of the more brilliant minds of our time, Ken Wilber, shares his thoughts on the concept of suffering.
The movement of discovery begins at the moment you consciously
become dissatisfied with life. Contrary to most professional
opinion , this gnawing dissatisfaction with life is not a sign
of ”mental illness” , nor an indication of poor social
adjustments , nor a character disorder . For concealed with this
basic unhappiness with life and existence is the embryo of a
growing intelligence, a special intelligence usually buried under the
immense weight of social shams.
A person who is beginning to sense the suffering of life is ,

Connecting to Energy

One morning I was listening to the classical music station. The

had been spoken trying to explain the meaning of this powerful piece of
music. Finally he said, ”It’s just pure energy! Pure Beethoven!” I
burst out laughing as I realized that he was essentially urging people to

Power Of Belief 15 y
"Be careful what you believe because it's true."
THE POWER OF BELIEF
When we believe in something, it becomes truth. This is because
our beliefs determine the choices we make in our lives, and our actions
help shape the world we live in. This essay asks why we don’t examine
our beliefs critically and adopt ways of thinking that celebrate human
life and dignity.
”Be careful what you believe because it’s true.”
Here is an amazing fact. Planets that are millions of miles away and
stars that are millions of light-years away can affect human events here
