So you thought you wanted enlightenment? Thought that life would be all peachy and smooth sailing when the veils of illusion were lifted? Those who have become ‘dis-illusioned’ — and haven’t slid back into denial after seeing what was on the other side, or run in the opposite direction with their first taste of ‘enlightenment’ — realize that waking up is hard work!

So what is behind these veils of constructed reality, one might ask? To put it in succinct terms, what lies behind the social conditioning is this: “That our society is the product of an extraterrestrial race that moves and breathes — and even breeds — beneath the surface of all of human history.”

It’s much easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled — such is the nature of confirmation bias and other psychological tools of manipulation. Breaking free of the ancient, historical ‘constant’ of mind control is an ongoing process of waking up out of a state of denial. Spiritual emergence and awakening involves a physiological break from the consensus social agreements of our planetary cultures.

The realization that you have been fooled beyond belief can cause a great deal of inner turmoil to arise: utter dismay, a sense of humiliation, and a resulting backlash from friends and family who continually (and unconsciously) attempt to pull you back in line with the accepted ‘mainstream’ groupthink. In this process of breaking free from the enslavement of human consciousness, if you don’t have days where you completely question your sanity, I would suggest that you aren’t really waking up. Here is the only piece of advice that reflects the truth of this process: Get used to it!

There is no use asking agents of the Matrix to validate the truth of your awakening, for you will only end up being diagnosed and medicated. You are simply becoming sane in an insane world. Now, more than ever, it is time for those who have already lifted these veils of deception to assist others who need the ‘survival’ band-aid ripped off quickly. A considerably-revised history lesson with regards to our true human origins is in order for the majority of humanity. Access the information, educate yourself, grab the sword of truth, and start swinging.

We must be willing to take a very direct look at what factors are inhibiting and obstructing our ability to see how the currently-implemented planetary paradigm has emerged from a history of violence, bloodshed and oppressive regimes. When we take this journey of discovery, what we will find is that the mechanism which has been used – and still is –  to drive these agendas, is the unsavory, unholy topic of religion, and the manipulative God-imposters lurking behind the many branches of this despotic tree.

We are dealing with mind programming, brainwashing, phantasms, and memes that have been so deeply embedded into the collective human psyche from epochs ago, that breaking free of them takes a considerable (and ongoing) effort. Not only must we dissociate ourselves from the daily distractions which are designed to keep us oblivious to the bigger picture, but we must be prepared to do the homework in order to discover our true human origins and the ongoing agenda of social control which suppresses that ‘occulted’ (hidden) truth.

If you have been born on this planet, then you are (to some degree or another) suffering the effects of a society that has become pathologically obedient to religious programming, and even those who break free from this tyrannical mechanism are oftentimes subsequently trained to become tolerant of all religions, rather than encouraged to clearly identify this dis-empowering phenomenon as being one of the main contributing factors to humanity’s continuing enslavement.

It’s easy to become a target of accusations that involve loaded terms like “unloving” and “intolerant” when you pierce into the core of the foundational Mind Control Virus known as Religion. One of the 20th century’s most psychopathic dictators, “Chairman” Mao Zedong, coined the phrase ‘political correctness’ as a propaganda tool to train individuals into self-policing their thoughts and words – a far more effective method of keeping groups of people docile and subservient to the prevailing mind control directives than violent force and physical coercion. This social manipulation construct has become a powerful ally in counteracting the emerging groundswell of information and insights regarding the roots and impact of religious psychopathology – aiding and abetting a ‘tyranny of context-free tolerance’ that attempts to shame (and thereby silence) those who question the external authority-worshiping orthodoxy.

Most people on this planet have been born into their religious ideologies, and are so heavily addicted to the daily rituals that uphold their ‘follower’ identification (and unquestioning obedience to their religion), that they have little inclination towards actually questioning whether they have been fooled. For these “chosen faithful”, their ego attachment with religious programming is reactive in design – they become easily offended when you bring into question the truth of their religion, the superiority of their particular flavour of “God”, and the validity of the written words within religious manuscripts. For many, it is actually a punishable offense to bring into question their “God”s eternal and unyielding authority.

Whenever this topic arises, there will be those who claim that other forms of cultural entrainment (which fall outside of the orthodox religion sphere) are somehow beyond the reach of separation consciousness corruption, being justified as ‘philosophies’ or ‘indigenous’ ways of knowing. However, the pathological program of obedience (and the projection of authority outside of one’s own sovereign self) is extended to all cults of ‘belief’.

The truth of these matters was understood by Siddhartha, who pleaded with those who were drawn to his perspective to avoid worshiping his being, creating idols out of his form, or transforming his insights into laws. And what has transpired as a result? The religion known as Buddhism, which would (of course) like to claim it is not a religion, and yet holds hundreds of millions of people in thrall to an idolized replica of this long-deceased man.  Every day, a large percentage of Buddhists (throughout Asia in particular) get down on their knees and beg to the Buddha in the same way that the Christians beg to Jesus – this form of energy vampirism literally weakens the body’s central nervous system.

A person can practice kinesiology while gazing at a Buddha statue to confirm this fact. External forms of imposed discipline merely breeds disciples, rather than an autonomous, sovereign human Be-ing. The patriarchal program is as prevalent throughout Buddhism as it is in other religious denominations. There are numerous examples that can be used to highlight this reality, however the most obvious may be to simply question when the Dalai Lama last incarnated as a woman, or when he next intends to do so? Siddhartha wound up becoming both an atheist and a vegetarian due to his extreme dissatisfaction with the endless blood sacrifices made to the “Gods” throughout the temples of his era.

If you want to check in with yourself about whether you are acting out of love or fear, then see how often you censor yourself from speaking about, and sharing the truth regarding subjects that might challenge somebody else’s mind control conditioning, particularly when it comes to religion. Sharing the god-awful truth about religion is an act of love. It is a service to humanity. It is not a matter of being intolerant of people, nor has it anything to do with hatred, racism or bigotry. It is a matter of identifying the limiting religious programming running through the minds of humanity, which is acting like malware within the mainframe of human consciousness. If a computer has a virus running through it which is corrupting its operating system to the point of paralysis, you do not accuse it of being intolerant or a bigot – you simply identify the problem and install a program to clean out the virus.

“You have to understand that most people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” ~ Morpheus, ‘The Matrix’

Religion is the false panacea that so many are hopelessly dependent upon, to the point where a fair number of adherents will literally fight to the death to defend their false ideological territory. Religion is a form of Stockholm Syndrome – defined as “Feelings of trust or affection felt in certain cases of kidnapping or hostage-taking by a victim toward a captor.”

In the case of those taken hostage by religious ideology, their captors are the alien planetary overlords who have masqueraded as Gods upon Earth, and most of their victims are not even aware ‘who’ or ‘what’ has captured them. The same pantheon of brutal, psychopathic, militant, inbreeding, pedophile, reptilian-being archetypes, are found scattered throughout various religions and cultures on Earth, going by different names throughout the competing sects of this divisive cult: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and on and on…a hierarchical ‘murderer’s row’ of beings that have been ‘cut and pasted’ (with slight variations) into the tapestry of various religions down through the ages, and amongst all cultures on Earth. These shadowy creatures are not simply the creative imaginings of a primitive people, nor can they be dismissed as mythological beings.  And – crucially – they have not left.

Their ancient and ongoing genetic engineering operations continue to perpetuate the programs of division, by playing upon ideas of racial superiority throughout the morphogenetic hive mind of humanity. This divisiveness is currently being stirred up to even-greater-than-usual degrees, so as to further the agenda of the overlords – an agenda which includes totalitarian global governance and completely-open human servitude. The wars of these god impersonators are being played out through their pawns: humanity.

What we are currently seeing with the creation and funding of terrorist groups by alphabet agencies and corrupt Governmental regimes, is the predetermined justification for total and endless warfare – and this is only the surface level reading of a much more sinister story. They are not playing this game within time-frames and life spans that human beings could comprehend, and they are using religious belief in such nihilistic concepts as “End Times”, “The Revelation”, “Judgement Day”, “The Rapture” or the “Apocalypse” as a handbook, a road map and a user guide towards an “End Game” scenario, making it seem as though prophecy is being fulfilled in a totally irreversible way.

Any face-value analysis of nationalistic political intrigue, misses out on a far more fundamental game plan: a gradual, directed process of rearranging the chess pieces on the board, all in service of bringing about ‘unified’ global governance.

“The bible tells us to be like God, and then on page after page it describes God as a mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the behavior of Western Civilization” ~ Robert Anton Wilson

To be involved in a religion that idolizes an ancient prophet as “God’s messenger” – a human being who, as their own text records, is personally responsible for the beheadings of hundreds of people in an attempt to wipe out genetic lines in the name of God – is to embody that archetype of military thinking and behavior which accompanies it. There will be no peace found within such idolization. It would serve people’s own state of sovereignty to start questioning what type of “God” would choose such an unfriendly and unsavory fellow to carry out his holy work on Earth?

Military training is another example of both Stockholm Syndrome and the nationalistic, racialist brainwashing whose roots are found within both patriarchal religious indoctrination and patriotic belief, perpetuating the agenda of control. Religion, Politics and Militarization always go hand in glove.

The wishful thinking of New Age believers (inspired by Eastern religious solipsism/reality-bypassing programs) – and the spiritually/politically correct obedience puppets who are flying the flag of religious acceptance – would like the rest of us to believe that all religions share, at their core, a ‘code’ filled with “Spiritual Insights”. Perhaps it is supposed to be some type of ‘spiritual test’ to find such enlightening and uplifting insights hidden amongst the many and varied accounts of murderous, vengeful Gods who advocate religious terrorism, and who command the annihilation of cities, order the murder of children, demands the rape of virgin girls, afford no rights to women, and who orders plagues and famines to afflict humankind with? When reading religious texts, it becomes fairly obvious that we are not dealing with an all-loving benevolent being here, but rather, we are seeing the shell game of off-planet impersonators who display every characteristic of a psychopath.

Far from promoting spiritual insights, religions are the breeding ground for conformity, psychopathy, and brainwashed militant fervor, playing upon the fear of death, punishment in the afterlife, and the salvation of those righteous believers who uphold “God’s” militant commands. These programs are designed to control and limit peoples mental faculties, modifying their behavior in the process. That is its function. Religion is a war on consciousness that was initiated in a time out of memory.

Every religion carries the seeds of division and hatred – at various times in his-story, a steady stream of various “faiths” have carried the water for the agenda of the god-impersonating off-planet, psychopathic overlords. It was only a few hundred years ago that millions of women in Europe were targeted and murdered after being accused by the Church of witchcraft. The psychic scarring that is carried within the genetic lineage of humanity’s feminine principle as a result of patriarchal religious dominance, is an ongoing global atrocity that serves to traumatize and disconnect individuals from the wisdom and guidance of this principle.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that the events of the Problem/Reaction/Solution ritual of 9/11 were set in motion in order to use the orchestrated threat of terrorism to justify the invasion of many Middle Eastern countries, creating a power vacuum that would be filled by militant fundamentalism – thus setting off an emerging refugee crisis designed to destabilize other countries around the world so as to establish further global control (“security”) courtesy of the New World Order. Islam has been festering away in the middle east for a long time, and is now being systematically spread around the globe to areas ripe for hosting this parasitic virus of consciousness. There is no easier (or more brutally-effective) approach for this type of hidden orchestration than inducing and inflaming ethnic conflict fueled by religious indoctrination, and as always, the best way to control the opposition is to lead it.

These are all symptoms of a much deeper, older malignancy that has to do with the modification of the original human blueprint and the endocrine system that produces the chemical ratios that stabilize our individual and collective state of consciousness. When seen from this perspective, there is a cruel, inhuman irony when one considers that these otherworldly manipulators are now worshiped as ‘saviours’ (as part of the ‘external salvation’ fallacious meme), which is another prominent aspect of the religion pathology.

You have to pull out the roots of evil rather than simply hack away at the branches. Without looking at the origins of religious servitude, and clearly identifying who these God imposters (that have farmed humanity for eons) really are – and instead focusing on simply identifying and blaming previous and current corrupt governmental models – you are only seeing the puppets dance, oblivious to the marionette pulling the strings. The Hebrew Bible story of human origins (known as the tale of Adam and Eve) is a false, misleading, and abbreviated version, derived from a far more ‘well-rounded’ rendition that originated in ancient Sumerian cuneiform texts. These recollected Sumerian accounts describe a space-faring species, known as the “Annunaki”, who genetically modified the human race and used them as slaves.

To do some homework and further investigate this topic, research books such as:

The solutions to the global crisis are not going to arise from the level of consciousness at which they are currently being generated. Tolerating religion is a band-aid, “feel good” solution over a rotting wound. We need to electromagnetically and neuro-chemically dissociate ourselves from the level of consciousness wherein these dualistic games are repeatedly being played out. The cumulative memory around religious servitude – built up within the collective consciousness and thus embedded into the morphic field of the planet – must be transcended. Only when we can collectively remove ourselves from that morphic resonance bandwidth of the religion frequency that is limiting our direct connection to source,  will we be able to embody the true benevolence of creation, as fractal aspects of co-creative consciousness.

Tips & Techniques That May Help You Experience ‘Astral Projection’

Tips & Techniques That May Help You Experience ‘Astral Projection’

Imagine this: You’ve gotten into bed and shut your eyes for a moment, and then all of a sudden, when you open them again, you’re hovering over your body. You’re conscious, but it’s not the you you typically identify as, the one with a face and clothing and jewellery, but the real you, your soul.

You’re looking down at your body and you realize you can move, almost as if you’re flying. You say goodbye to your body and begin to travel around your room, down your stairs, out your door, and then… you wake up. This is a form of astral projection, commonly referred to as an “out of body experience.”

Some people have reported astral projecting during a dream-like state, while others have experienced this same thing when they had a near-death experience. Some find the experience terrifying, and others find it humbling and exciting, knowing they can travel throughout the physical plane using only their astral bodies. If you’ve ever wanted to try astral projecting or wish to learn more about it, this article is for you!

What Is Astral Projection? 

When astral projecting, you are consciously aware of it. Many people will look at their physical bodies and recognize themselves while they’re in a sleep-like state.

It is said that astral projection is an out-of-body experience that can be achieved either through dreaming, deep meditation, or even when you’re awake. As far as I know, most people who astral project will simply explore the physical plane as they know it. However, it is said that the Akashic Records can be accessed from here and one can travel through timelines and even communicate with other beings (sometimes even other projectors).

It’s important to note that most people don’t experience the same third dimensional physical constraints when astral projecting. For example, most souls are able to travel while projecting out-of-body by way of flying or floating.

Astral projecting is very different from dreaming or even lucid dreaming. When you’re dreaming, you’re unconscious. When you’re experiencing a lucid dream, you are usually conscious of the fact that you’re dreaming, and thus you can manipulate scenarios and control your dreams. However, when you’re astral projecting, your soul literally exits the body, but you are consciously controlling it.

Techniques for Having an Out-of-Body Experience

Though many people don’t consciously plan to astral project, it is said that you can use certain techniques to help yourself astral project or have an out-of-body experience (OBE). If you’re interested in trying to astral project, give the following techniques a shot:

The Rope Technique

This is actually the only technique I’ve tried, and I sort of had success! Though I didn’t have a full-blown OBE, I definitely felt it coming on and left my body for a few moments, until I got too scared and decided to stop.

Basically, all you do is envision an invisible rope hanging from the top of your ceiling, directly over your body. You then imagine that you’re reaching out your “astral body hands” and slowly pull yourself up the imaginary rope. You may feel dizzy, which is completely normal. Keep concentrating on climbing the rope, hand over hand and very slowly, and don’t stop until you’ve freed your astral body.

Watch Yourself Falling Asleep

This method requires you to be very diligent as you begin to fall asleep. Tell yourself that you’re going to watch yourself fall asleep and actually stay conscious during the entire process, including when you enter into the dream state. Recognize every sensation you experience as your physical body falls asleep, as this will help you remain conscious.

As you fall deeper into a dream-like state, you may experience some buzzing and heaviness. Use this to help yourself stay conscious and visualize yourself floating above your body. Continue to visualize this until you hopefully reach the point of OBE.

Wake Back to Bed Method

Though not very enjoyable for those of us who enjoy sleeping, the “wake back” method is very popular to induce astral projection as well as lucid dreaming. Set your alarm for a few hours before you usually wake up, but don’t get up when it goes off, simply shut it off and lay back down once your mind is awake. Ideally, you want to keep your alarm close by so you barely need to move your body to shut it off. This way, your body will be close to falling back asleep but your mind will be awake.

Now, start to envision yourself astral projecting in the same way, while also allowing your body to go to sleep. Try to remain conscious but allow your body to get heavier and deeper into a sleep-state. Continuously focus on floating above your body until you’re astral projecting.

My Experience With Astral Projection

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure if I believed in astral projection until I actually experienced it myself. I had tons of lucid dreams before, but still the thought of projecting my soul out of my body and consciously hovering over it didn’t seem realistic to me.

That is, until it happened one night last summer. I was sleeping with a friend and, despite having slept there multiple times before, I was having a lot of trouble falling asleep. My mind was racing for a period of time but it randomly shut off, and then I kept hearing this buzzing sound that didn’t really sound like any vibration or frequency I’d heard from his house before. I remember closing my eyes and immediately when I opened them, I was shocked. I was still staring at the ceiling, but instead of being 10 feet away, I was only a few inches in proximity. I immediately recognized that I couldn’t be lying down anymore and remember thinking to myself, “When did I stand up?”

To my dismay, when I looked down, I saw us sleeping. I then looked out the window and had somewhat of an internal battle on whether or not I should leave the bedroom. Though I wasn’t using any words or thinking, I intuitively knew that I was struggling to decide whether I should explore the night sky or stay in the comfort of the bedroom near my physical body. I remained looking out the window for a long time until I finally woke up, shocked that I had actually astral projected.

Though many of you reading this may feel as though I was simply having another dream, I know I wasn’t. I was confident that my soul had left my body, especially because everything in the bedroom was so clear, and I had a strong sense of Self throughout the entire dream. I’ve also had numerous “extremely realistic” dreams, so realistic that when I wake up, I’m shocked it was a dream, but this was very different. It was as if I had finally broken free from my shell, and though it was invigorating, empowering, and somewhat comforting, it was also slightly terrifying.

It’s experiences like these that make us seriously question our individuality, our uniqueness, and our personalities that form our identities on this planet. We are not our physical bodies; I am not Kalee, and that can be a scary reality to face (especially when you’re literally staring yourself in the face, soul to physical body). However, although astral projection can shatter your identity, you don’t have to abandon it.

Yes, underneath it all, you are not your physical body, nor are you your experiences and accomplishments. However, that doesn’t mean you have to give it all up! We are on this planet to experience and to feel. Though we are not our emotions at our cores, that don’t mean we shouldn’t have them. If it’s on this planet, its existence serves a purpose.

This is the heart of detachment  — knowing your “attachments” (or what many consider attachments, like emotions and people) doesn’t define you, because eventually, after “death,” you will no longer have them.

Move Over, Marijuana: Psychedelic Drugs Could Be The Next Big Thing

Aaron Kesel, The Mind Unleashed

Several companies that are developing medical treatments from psychedelic drugs like LSD, ketamine, and psilocybin—the active ingredient in magic mushrooms—is getting ready to list on Canadian stock exchanges.

One of those companies, Mind Medicine Inc., has been involved in clinical trials of psychedelic-based drugs and aims to list on Toronto’s NEO Exchange by the first week of March, JR Rahn, the company’s co-founder and co-chief executive officer, told Bloomberg.

Our ambition is to be one of the first publicly listed neuro-pharmaceutical companies developing psychedelic medicines,” Rahn said in an interview.

And Mind Med Inc. isn’t the only company reaching into the deep waters of developing psychedelic medicines. There are a growing number of companies that are conducting or beginning to administer clinical trials of psychedelic treatments for things like depression to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some trials have even received the blessing of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In late 2018, the FDA stated that psilocybin was a “breakthrough therapy” via a drug developed by London-based Compass Pathways Ltd. for clinical depression.

Mind Med Inc. is preparing for a second clinical trial into the use of a non-hallucinogenic drug based on a psychedelic called ibogaine to treat opioid addiction, which will be conducted in New York and overseen by the FDA, according to a report.

A third company, Field Trip Psychedelics Inc., is also involved with researching psilocybin at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.

Last year TMU reported that psilocybin, the substance found in 200+ species of magic mushrooms, may be the next health and legalization trend following cannabis. Unlike research into the use of cannabis, which is still federally illegal in the U.S., the work that psychedelic companies are doing is entirely legal. This means that companies don’t have to jump through legal barriers to research the effects and benefits of these drugs.

TMU has previously reported on the benefits of psychedelics used in the form of medication, often in conjunction with therapy. For example, studies in recent years have shown that psychedelic compounds can be used for a variety of different things including reviving someone from a vegetative state, reducing violence, reducing the chance of losing brain functions later in life, resetting the brains of those diagnosed with depression, and improving one’s mental health.

Another study TMU previously reported on found that psychedelic use doesn’t have a link to mental health problems or suicidal behavior, unlike alcoholic beverages.

Benny Shanon, professor of cognitive philosophy at Hebrew University, believes the theory that Moses was high on psychedelics when he spoke to god. There exists a similar theory about the seer Michel de Nostradamus. While these things cannot be proven, studies have shown that psilocybin increases creativity.

20 Profound Quotes By Carl Jung That Will Help You To Better Understand Yourself

20 Profound Quotes By Carl Jung That Will Help You To Better Understand Yourself
Photo Credit: Collective Evolution

One of the things I love about Carl Jung is the fact that he was a deep philosophical thinker who examined all aspects of the self when writing about the human experience. As you will see in the quotes below, Jung was clear on the notion that we are spiritual beings, and that having a spiritual relationship with oneself truly helps us to understand the deeper aspects of who we are.

To some, this idea translates to religion — to finding solace in the existence of something greater than yourself — but I believe this to be a fickle form of spirituality, and one that does not truly help a person get to the core of who they are (or, alternatively, who they are not).

According to www.cgjungpage.org:

“Carl Jung was one of the creators of modern depth psychology, which seeks to facilitate a conversation with the unconscious energies which move through each of us. He contributed many ideas which continue to inform contemporary life: complex, archetype, persona, shadow, anima and animus, personality typology, dream interpretation, individuation, and many other ideas. He had a deep appreciation of our creative life and considered spirituality a central part of the human journey.”

This summation of his life and work connects deeply to what Collective Spark is all about, and shares much in common with what inspired me to create this platform in the first place. In putting together the quotes in this article, I gained an even deeper appreciation for Jung and his work, as I uncovered the conscious themes that were apparent throughout his teachings. He was clearly a deep thinker with an intimate knowledge of his inner being.

Jung also had an appreciation for astrology which, over the past few years, I’ve begun to understand more and more and see profound value in. I’m not talking about opening your daily paper and reading your generalize horoscope, however, but true astrology. Something many of us have never been properly exposed to and thus don’t understand the real meaning of   or value. (Maybe we’ll have to make a short documentary on this one day!)

But enough on my own musings — onto the quotes! Here are 20 from Jung that I feel not only serve as an accurate representation of his work, but also provide much to reflect on.

  • ”One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.”
  • “Don’t hold on to someone who’s leaving, otherwise you won’t meet the one who’s coming.”
  • “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
  • “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
  • “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
  • “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
  • “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness’s of other people.”
  • “If you are a gifted person, it doesn’t mean that you gained something. It means you have something to give back.”
  • “Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.”
  • “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
  • “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls.”
  • “Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
  • “Depression is like a woman in black. If she turns up, don’t shoo her away. Invite her in, offer her a seat, treat her like a guest and listen to what she wants to say.”
  • “A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.”
  • “Your perception will become clear only when you can look into your soul.”
  • “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
  • “What you resist persists.”
  • “A dream is a small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens up to that primeval cosmic night that was the soul, long before there was the conscious ego.”
  • “We may think that we fully control ourselves. However, a friend can easily reveal something about us that we have absolutely no idea about.”
  • “Everything about other people that doesn’t satisfy us helps us to better understand ourselves.”

If you’re inspired by what you’ve seen here, you might find Carl Jung’s 4 stages of life interesting. According to Carl Jung, we move through various stages as we progress in life

  1. The Athlete
  2. The Warrior
  3. The Statement
  4. The Spirit

These stages have nothing to do with how old you are, what you have achieved or what possessions you have attained and are also not linear. You can actually alternative between these stages throughout life, but they provide an interesting insight into what you’re currently experiencing. Check out his 4 stages of life here.

If You’re Not Doing What You Love, You’re Wasting Your Life – Here’s How To Make More Time

Mark DeNicola, Guest Writer

Time is our most precious resource here on Earth.

Some of you may be able to make a compelling argument for the value of money, but time, unlike money, cannot be earned. We can eat healthy and live an active lifestyle, both of which should extend our chances of longevity, but it isn’t a guaranteed formula.

Not only could we do everything we’re supposed to and still fall short of the average human life expectancy — currently 79.28 in the United States — but we could also (knock on wood) be derailed by a tragic accident or some other unforeseen circumstance.

So going with the assumption that time is our most valuable resource, what is a statement we not only hear others, but also find ourselves, saying far too often? “I don’t have enough time.”

Whether it’s to justify not pursuing a particular goal, or it’s to try and weasel ourselves out of taking the blame for something we missed, we all regularly complain of being short of this oh-so-precious resource.

To find more time in our lives, we tend to practice one of two main tactics: multi-tasking and addition by subtraction.

Multi-Tasking Is Bulls**t

As competent as some of you may believe yourselves to be at multi-tasking, I firmly believe that it cannot be done effectively, and just as New York Times-bestselling author Neil Pasricha says in The Happiness Equation, we don’t actually do multiple things at once — we just take recurring breaks from doing one thing to work on another.

Can you actually talk on the phone and drive your car at the same time and do both as proficiently as you could separately? Or do you regularly find yourself either asking the person you’re talking with to repeat themselves, or slamming on the breaks to avoid a potential collision?

Addition By Subtraction Is Rarely the Answer

The other way we love to “mine” more time for ourselves is to cut certain activities, responsibilities, and occasionally even people out of our lives. I’m all for this if whatever you’re cutting is something (or someone) you genuinely want out of your life, but how often is that really the case?

So instead I’d like to present a new — and far simpler — solution to instantly give yourself more time to do what you love in life:

The Addiction Is Real!

According to the 2016 Neilsen Social Media Report, the average adult spends just over 25 hours per week on social media, and I seriously doubt that much of that is with a definitive purpose. Most of it begins out of habit and an unconscious addiction, and consists of time being spent looking at, reading, or watching content that has little-to-no bearing on our well-being.

It may not seem like it, but I can promise you that I am not here to condemn social media as a whole, since I love it just as much as you do (and also recognize that you wouldn’t be here reading this right now without it). But I am trying to show how much of our seeming time shortage problem is of our own doing.

It’s not because we have too much on our plate, or that our family expects too much of us, or that there actually aren’t enough hours in a day. It all boils down to how we are choosing to spend our time, and the first step to changing that is by becoming consciously aware of how much is currently being consumed by an addiction we all have the ability to crack.

Remember that social media once didn’t exist and we were all perfectly fine without it. I seriously doubt our lives will be in peril should we choose to cut back and simply go to it when we actually have a reason to.
