Perspectives of the World

As we grow spiritually, there are several processes underway. One is the removal of veils on consciousness. This is the process of purification of the means of experiencing. In Sanskrit this masking is known as …

Feelings vs Emotions

On this blog, I use Emotions and Feelings to mean different things, although English is a little limiting. For example, we “feel emotions,” we don’t emote them (although some sure do (laughs)). I use this …
