Personalities Align with Objects of Awareness

Can we find personalities anywhere? Are they stockpiled somewhere in nature or in human institutions? Can anyone ever follow that advice to “get a life” even if they are willing? Personality is all around us, because it’s non local. It… Seek More

Personal Core

In Buddhist practice, you learn that there is no “I” you can point at. Your “I” is in the space to experience. And that gets us right down to the personal core of personality. We are not bricks in a… Seek More

Our Energy Fingerprint
