The way I hurdled headlong into what I thought was love three years ago is so clichéd that I won’t even bother describing the intoxicating fireworks. It was a star-crossed, impossible relationship from the get-go, a doomed love affair heading for a crash and burn we both should have anticipated, but we didn’t see it coming. We both made promises we had no business making, and it felt so seductive to believe we could keep them. We were reckless and narcissistic, believing in magic and miracles, instead of facing the inevitable reality that would one day smack us in the ass. Continue reading The Long Arc of Love→
Ayahuasca is an entheogenic brew that excels at shadow work. Your shadow is everything you have shunned from childhood that has caused you shame, pain and guilt. As a result, the energy behind those experiences and memories is kept hidden from the conscious self, and eventually forms the shadow self that remains in the dark.
The shadow, or split self becomes the unconscious and invisible force behind your moment-to-moment interactions, decisions and motivations; it is the root cause of your limiting patterns and emotional blockages in life, yet you may have long forgotten about those memories. Eventually, the trapped energy can result in mental, emotional and physical distress. Continue reading Ayahuasca – The Shadow Goddess and Game Master of Love→
Education is one of our core values here at Collective Evolution. By education I don’t necessarily mean the acquisition of a degree, however; education takes all shapes and forms. Simply being alive and experiencing life as we do every day is worthy of the name education.
We receive an education when we interact with others, and we receive an education when we do independent research. Formal schooling is a different beast entirely, and it’s unfortunate that our society equates diplomas and degrees with intelligence, since obtaining a piece of paper has nothing to do with intelligence at all.

I’m seeing so clearly how the greatest course correction I possibly will ever make is to cross the line from a person who loves himself in an average kind of way to a person who actively and generously does so.
I don’t mean out of hubris or arrogance or aloofness. I mean out of higher-dimensional, divine, or transformative love. What people mean when they capitalize the word “Love.” Continue reading Give the Gift of Love→
The awakening of humanity is proceeding apace, and most enthusiastically, because, in spite of the unsettling and disturbing mainstream media news, people everywhere are beginning to see the Light and feel uplifted and inspired to make the daily intent, on waking in the morning, to be loving throughout the day, whatever arises. Doing only that is enormously powerful and effective, it is what you all incarnated to do – to be conduits for the Tsunami of Love enveloping the planet. Continue reading Saul via John Smallman: Love is All-Pervasive. All You Have To Do Is Open Yourselves Up To It→
I wrote the following for the 253rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.
Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).
What I want is simple.
I want the world to live in peace; not die in war. I want to see people treat each other as equals; not hate and kill each other over something as silly as religious or political differences. I want us to treat each other as one human race; not multiple races in perpetual conflict over what divides us.
I want to help people understand what love really is; not the romantic notions we’ve come to associate with love, but true love. This is love for all mankind, and with it comes the understanding that we are one race. We can thrive together or fall together. Continue reading What I Want→
The way I see it, there ain’t no bigger and more powerful force in the whole universe than LOVE itself.
Love makes the world go round. It’s the glue that hold everything together. Love is what we are made of. We are made of love and made to love. Our true nature is love and by trying to move away from love, by saying that we want to give up on love, we slowly but surely move away from who we truly are. We move away from our true nature, drifting away and feeling more and more disoriented, disconnected and confused. Continue reading Why You Should Never Give Up On Love→
