William Shakespeare once said that one sure sign of a spiritually developing mind is its increasing capacity to simultaneously perceive the opposites. The following two Key Lessons help clarify this vital thought: Once we understand that all forces — even […]
Guy Finley explains how self-awareness allows you to directly experience what is currently interfering with your ability to be in relationship with what is good, true, and beautiful. The more this real self-knowledge is brought into your relationships, the more […]
