(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Problems and suffering in human life occur when we lose the sense of being whole. We are whole, we just forget. Each fundamental way in which our sense of being whole is lost leads to an illusion of separateness.

You are not your mind or your body. You are not your watch or the roles you play. Each of the things you are not — but believe you are — creates and reinforces your sense of separateness.

Many people try to ignore this. They would rather live in the illusion. Life is harder in the illusion because there is a never-ending struggle to maintain it.

Instead, use your energy to pierce the illusions and you will arrive at wholeness.
