With a new year starting, I felt like sharing a few of my popular and important blog posts to help people start on a good spiritual note.

I know lots of people associate different years with spiritual awakening, and below I have one of my most popular blog posts with my thoughts about what awakening means in 2019. Additionally, many people often like to make resolutions for the New Year, so another post has thoughts about how to make these resolutions spiritual.

The last two posts offer essential advice for letting go of the ego and finding spiritual freedom.

I hope they are helpful. Happy 2019!

Spiritual Awakening and 2019

People like to equate time with awakening, but the awakened space is timeless. Honestly, I think this is good news. It means you don't have to worry if your chance to awaken and become more conscious has been missed in a previous year. The present moment is always here for you, and you can always return to that spaciousness to remember who and what you truly are.

For more thoughts on the timelessness of the awakened space, you can read the below blog post:

Getting Free of Ego Suffering

There is suffering. But what is suffering? It's not pain. Pain is part of life. Suffering is our response to pain and anything else our ego does not like.

A person can stub their toe, and then the person gets angry. The pain of the stubbed toe is part of the way the body communicates with us. The anger is a choice. The ego choice can be changed. Pain will continue to be part of the body's communication tools.

Furthermore, it doesn't have to be something bad that happens for someone to suffer. A person can get a pay raise at work. But it wasn't the amount the person wanted to get. So they are angry. Something that is usually considered to be good is then turned into suffering.

The ego can contort and twist all kinds of things into reasons for you to suffer, and if you want to learn how to let go of your ego and get off this crazy train, check out the below blog post:

The Path to Spiritual Freedom

Letting go of the ego is part of the journey towards spiritual freedom. In freedom, we no longer suffer from the ego. We also learn on the spiritual path how to confront and transform some of our deepest and most ingrained biological responses like the sex drive and fight-or-flight. This part of transformation is rarely a quick path, but the freedom that is realized is extremely rewarding.
