Value, in its own right.

I believe, as well as many others, that society puts certain things in place in order to shape what we value, creating a certain system of values. Institutions like corporations, churches, schools, and other workplaces push this system onto us in order to mold us into something that fits rather than an entity that explores. We are taught that different is not good, that what makes us individuals and what makes us comfortable is not the right thing according to the society we reside in. If there is anything I have learned over the course of my spiritual and life development, it is that spending too much time in our heads is what moving us away from feeling and truly understanding. If we don’t trust what our bodies and–most importantly–our hearts and souls tell us, then how can we expect to actually connect with one another?

I urge anyone interested in a new way of looking at the world and the people who reside in it to visit and see the great work my mentors Phil and Deb are doing. Very moving and inspirational stuff, and they’re only just at the beginning. Their book comes out later this year! (And I am writing a novel for Phil, which will be due out in increments sometime this year as well. More on that later.)

Too sleepy to type now, but humanity needs to remember its roots instead of reaching for the sky without a proper base.
