“To find the truth, we will need to navigate the mazes of the dark areas of our own souls.”

—Jill Loree

Minding the Gap: What Stops Us From Being Happy?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

For many, there’s a gap between what we say we want in life and what we’re actually getting out of life. Why is there this gap? And really, why bother trying to close the gap if, in the end, it seems like darkness will keep winning anyways?

It may be helpful to realize that, no, darkness can’t win in the long run. The reason is simply this: the greater our darkness, or negativity, the lower our awareness. In other words, opting to remain in the dark about our own negativity closes off our ability to perceive what’s going on in and around us. (Part 1 of 3)


Getting to Know Ourself: Where is Untruth Hiding?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

When there is a disturbance in our life, we must find the root cause of the problem. Because the source of our disharmonies always originates within us. If this weren’t true, we would have to fix the outer world in order to find peace. And changing the outside world is beyond our control.

The good news is that we have it within our power to resolve all the problems in our world by looking within. The bigger problem is that we can’t see what we’ve been hiding. (Part 2 of 3)


Healing by Opening Up: Why Do We Tell Stories?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

There is a spiritual law at work when we open up to someone else. Because in that moment, we are taking a risk and performing an act of humility. And becoming humble—as opposed to prideful—is very healing.

In fact, one of the most harmful things we do to ourselves is to try to appear more perfect than we are. But the moment we show another person what’s really going on inside us, we will instantly feel relief. Even if the other person doesn’t give us a single bit of advice. (Part 3 of 3)


Why Did God Make War?

Reading Time: 13 minutes

We can likely all agree that we live in a world filled with people at very different levels of development. This causes friction, and that friction hands us our work. Because all these different levels of development create misunderstandings and blindness, and therefore conflicts. Yet this friction is exactly the key to developing faster. Because conflicts are what bring our own weaknesses to the surface.

All this makes being a human quite difficult. So then why couldn’t all this have been avoided? Why can’t we just live with people who hail from the same spiritual spheres as us? Well, we used to, and here’s what happened.


What Happened When You Were Seven?

Reading Time: 14 minutes

It will take most people an entire lifetime to realize that conclusions formed early in life are based on misunderstandings. Indeed, many will go to their graves believing their hidden wrong conclusions were right.

Since we can no longer see our mistaken beliefs, it’s easy to assume they must be harmless, right? No, they’re not. Because they form hidden obstacles in our system—tight knots made up of wrong conclusions and the painful feelings associated with them—that today are the root cause of all our daily disharmonies. For they are at the root of our faults.
