A huge paradigm shift is taking place in religion and spirituality that will change all of us and hasten our collective enlightenment. "God" is not what we have thought or imagined.

Aging and the Loss of Ambition

In the second stage of aging, middle old age, we often begin to lose the ambition and goal orientation that focused and drove so much of life. Ego - the "I" that runs the show (or at least tries to run the show), begins to lose its power, like an engine running out of  Read More
