New spiritual breakthroughs need to be integrated into your being to become permanent shifts in consciousness.

This is the way to gain insight into the depth of your realizations and to further your journey into expanded and bright fields of awareness.

On the advanced spiritual path, intuition is your powerful inner guide. Intuition tells you what next step to take even (and especially) if you can’t see the path in front of you.

Anyone can become enlightened. The disposition on the advanced path is: If anyone can wake up, why not me? This comes from a place of deep humility that we are all God and creates an opening to Light that might have been blocked by thoughts filled with doubt, low self-esteem or spiritual fatigue.
The advanced path begins when you want spiritual liberation more than anything else and you finally stop the endless cycle of techniques, strategies and practice that keep you from waking up. There are no rules on the advanced path and there is no single formula for success. Instead, the advanced path is a constant orientation toward liberation, a quality of openness and a letting go of all the activity that has prevented you from waking up.
