This Side of Paradise and the Unexamined Self

By meestereric / July 24, 2019 /

Last night I watched an old Star Trek original series episode that had come to mind: “This Side of Paradise“.

Is Being an Embodied Being a Fall from Grace?

By meestereric / April 12, 2019 /

By meestereric / May 28, 2018 /

  Freedom and love can’t be separated.  By “freedom” is meant true inner freedom, and by “love” is meant impersonal love, the nondual living truth, not human love. It was very important for me to see the connection between freedom and love. The watershed moment was visiting a restaurant run by a tribe who emerged…
