Nurit Oren ‘The Blonde On The Rocky Road to Freedom’ Interview by Iain McNay
Author of ‘The Blind Leading The Blonde On The Road To Freedom.’ Nurit was born in Israel, her parents were atheist Jewish pioneers – in a Kibbutz where the kids lived separately – there was no family unit to relate to – was allowed to be wild/play naked. But all changed when family moved to Canada. In her late teens served in the Israeli army for two years where she was stationed in Gaza where it was very dangerous. One day she hitchhiked to the wailing wall in Jerusalem and stuck a piece of paper between the cracks saying ‘ I want to find true love, divine love, the love of God that is pure, unchanging and everlasting.’
Found books by Muktananda and went to live in his ashram in India where she was a dedicated disciple. There she got up at 3am every day – then meditation then chanting then work no breakfast, then chanting then lunch then work then more chanting then work, then dinner. There was no socialising at all. She had a kundalini awakening then decided to stay indefinitely.But Muktananda died.

Moved to Toronto, found a teacher called Dr Mills and stayed with him for 15 years. She had then been on a spiritual path for 40 years and still didn’t feel free.

Met Gabor Harsanyi , ‘It’s very simple. Look at me and feel your hand without looking at it. Notice that your mind will stop.’ When she did this something shifted inside her…she felt a very subtle sensation of wellness and peace. ‘Now I get it’ she realised ‘This is it….this is what I have been searching for.’

Liberation IS: The End of The Spiritual Path by Salvadore Poe (Author)

There are a thousand books that talk about spiritual awakening and enlightenment, and while you read them you may be inspired, you may be impressed with the wisdom of the author, but you don’t awaken, you just continue seeking. In this remarkable book, Salvadore Poe guides you step by step to awakening. Liberation IS is intended as a final push for those who are ready to be finished seeking. Through inquiries and experiments you are guided to recognize your free essential being, and to realize that you are whole and complete and lack nothing, exactly as you are now. When this is clearly seen and becomes doubtless, seeking ends naturally, by itself. As one person said who went through these inquiries, “Now, even if I find it hard to believe, all that seeking has completely lost any sense.”

Excerpt from the editor’s foreword, “I did the inquiry sessions, and they changed what I knew about myself, forever. After that, no more looking for teachers and retreats, no more spiritual seeking. Knowing who I am – essentially free, unborn, whole and complete – was all I needed to know. Sal, in the most direct and simple way, pointed out this essential truth from the beginning.” Lola Lozano

Excerpt from the preface. “This book is not intended as another spiritual book, of which there are already thousands. It is intended to help you to be finished seeking. And it is not intended as a means to transcend your humanity, but to embrace your humanity in total.” Salvadore Poe

The book includes Inquiries, Experiments, Questions and Answers, all intended for you, the reader, to come to know for yourself that you are now and always have been free.

Look Inside Salvadore Poe is a musician from New York, who in 1997 had a life changing experience that propelled him on several years of intensive self-inquiry. Traveling wherever he needed to go to meet teachers, and meeting many authentic ones, he eventually wound up living in India with two revered sages. In 2004, after years of meditation and countless mystical, transcendent experiences, he finally met his last teacher. Eight years later, while he was living an ordinary life making music in India, someone he met asked him to share and this work was born.

Awakening, Your Nature is Love

When we awaken to our true nature, or natural default human condition, we discover that we are free already. This freedom is all-inclusive, void of comparison, void of feelings of lack or incompleteness. This that we call liberation or enlightenment reveals that our true nature is natural love. It is as we were when we came out of the womb and is the same now. All spiritual seeking ends up here.

Higher: Awaken to a More Fulfilling Life by Charles Hanna


The world’s great philosophers and spiritual leaders teach us that happiness depends on how we look at life. In Higher, Charles Hanna explores why and how we can create the best possible outlook. By finding our Higher Perspective, Higher Power, and Higher Purpose, he demonstrates how we can challenge our demons and become our best selves. His experience of physical, emotional, and spiritual recovery and his applications will resonate powerfully with all readers.

As a young man, Hanna emigrated from Egypt to Canada where he got an education and followed his dreams. From one perspective, his life was perfect—his family grew, his businesses flourished; yet, his doubt and addiction quietly destroyed him. It was not until Hanna finally hit bottom that he discovered the tools to achieve true personal freedom and happiness—a Higher life. Through his firsthand experience and his understanding of human nature, neuroscience, and life management, Hanna provides readers with practical and practicable techniques and ideas so that everyone can apply the Higher way to their daily routines and to their dreams.

Hanna’s engaging voice, fascinating realizations, and depth of understanding make Higher a valuable book for anyone, religious or otherwise, who wants to find greater meaning, beauty, and success in their lives.

Charles Hanna is the Chairman, CEO, and founder of Brains II a third-party technology provider that he began in a basement in 1979 and built into Canada’s largest independent service consolidation company with offices in all of the major cities in the country. A devoted father of three children, Hanna is involved with a range of charities including organizations that help with cancer treatment, artists, and displaced or handicapped people. He has a particularly soft spot for children and animals, and contributes his personal time in various ways to the YMCA and animal shelter groups. He divides his time between Toronto and Los Angeles.

Soul Shifts : Transformative Wisdom for Creating a Life of Authentic Awakening, Emotional Freedom & Practical Spirituality by Dr. Barbara De Angelis [updated Dec 25, 2015]

There are pivotal moments in the lives of all seekers when we realize that we’ve been traveling on our path of growth toward happiness and ful­fillment, but, simply put, we want to go faster. How we have been living, working, and loving just isn’t enough or even acceptable anymore. We know we’re being called to something more signi­ficant and expanded—we can feel it. At these times what’s needed is not simply more change or an adjustment in our outer life, but profound transformation. We don’t just want to rearrange the pieces of ourselves so that they look better temporarily. We want nothing less than rebirth. We are ready for Soul Shifts.

Soul Shifts is the groundbreaking new book from New York Times best-selling author and renowned transformational teacher Barbara De Angelis, Ph.D. Now, in her most powerful offering yet—and the culmination of her life’s work—Dr. De Angelis offers a practical handbook for awakening, and a brilliant revisioning of the journey of personal and spiritual transformation that will inspire and enlighten longtime seekers as well as new arrivals to the path of growth.

Soul Shifts are radical, vibrational internal shifts that spontaneously and inevitably transform the way you relate to yourself, to others, and to the world. For transformation to be real and lasting, it must originate from the inside out, so that instead of trying to constantly micromanage everything, you operate from true mastery at the deepest level of who you are—the soul level.
When you learn how to make these “Soul Shifts” on the inside, everything on the outside of your life shifts. Places where you’ve felt stuck or confused become illuminated with new clarity and understanding. Obstacles turn into possibilities, dead ends transform into doorways, and challenges convert into astonishing maps leading you to exciting new territories . . . all because you have made a Soul Shift.

A masterful and moving teacher, Dr. De Angelis will offer you illuminating guidance and invaluable techniques for living a life of practical spirituality and making your own personal Soul Shifts. Written with Barbara De Angelis’s trademark eloquence, keen insight, and compassionate wisdom, Soul Shifts takes you on nothing less than a sacred inner journey to emotional and spiritual rebirth and lasting attainment. Reading it will leave you truly and authentically uplifted and transformed.

DR. BARBARA DE ANGELIS is one of the most influential teachers of our time in the field of personal and spiritual transformation. A renowned author, speaker, and media personality, she has earned legendary status as one of the first people who helped popularize the self-help movement in the 1980s.
Dr. De Angelis has written 14 best-selling books that have sold over 10 million copies and been published in 25 languages, including four #1 New York Times bestsellers.

Tools for Sanity: Peace, Freedom and Fulfillment in Every Moment by Mystic Girl in the City (Author)


Peace, freedom, and fulfillment are available to you in each and every moment…

“Well done, a fresh voice among so many sound-a-likes” – Adyashanti

“Tools for Sanity” is an invitation to unfold into an effortless peace. An invitation, if you’re willing, to see yourself and your world in an entirely different light.

Tools for Sanity reveals:

  • Four tools we can all access at any moment that can lead us directly to personal liberation.
  • Transforming unconscious or painful patterns into peace.
  • Engaging in our modern world with ease and effortlessness.
  • What awakening into our true nature is, from Kiran’s personal account.
  • Navigating relationships with sanity and authenticity.

Warning: Contents of this book may be hazardous to your ideas about reality, and/or may challenge your beliefs about enlightenment.

Mysitc Girl in the City: Kiran is an internationally known spiritual teacher and author. She died of massive spontaneous awakening into her true nature, then eight years later, and at the encouragement of many teachers, including Moni Vangolen, Bentinho Massaro, Thomas Stubbs, Adyashanti, she began to talk and teach. Because she spontaneously awoke, with no prior spiritual background, orientation or understanding, she is known for her unique point of view. Folks often call her teachings “fresh” because she doesn’t have any spiritual language or lineage she points to. She sees primarily from vast stillness and embodies “the world” from an “inside-outside” point of view. Seeing the coding of the universe in order to see the universe, it’s very “matrix” like.

5 Pitfalls of Spiritual Awakening

Published on Jun 18, 2015

We can easily fall into these traps when we have a genuine awakening! Its good to know the pitfalls.
#1) Getting lost in Transcendence.
It’s so easy to get lost in transcendence, but the point of stillness is the forms of your life! Without a connection to spirit/life/source the forms are empty, but without form spirit is empty.

#2) Thinking you will have special spiritual powers.
Who is that little bit of “me” that wants to be special, who is going to have extra special spiritual powers? That me can make a whole lot of trouble.

#3) Thinking you’ve messed up because you experience intense feelings.
Intense feelings are not a sign that you have messed up your awakening. Awakening brings you into intense “aliveness”, not a static feeling of “happiness”.

#4) Thinking something is wrong because it’s getting so weird and intense.
Awakening is a very intense ride. The teachers rarely speak about this…but they all know it!

#5) Unsolicited Advice
Warning! Unsolicited advice is so easy to give, but it’s not going to benefit anyone. Wait until they ask you directly. (And feel free to ask them!)

The Gift


For millennia humanity has struggled to understand
one simple truth. There is ONLY God.

The Creator and Its Creations are one and the same.
There is no line of separation. No beginning, no end.
The illusion of separation is the veil of which we speak.

As the very nature of Creation is infinite possibility,
everything seen and unseen is possible.

Belief in separation has allowed mankind to create
imagined opposition such as war, evil, judgment.
We create it all.

Perfection lies in ALL Creation, even that which we
do not understand and judge to be imperfect.
Destruction is part of the creative process.

There are no victims, there are no chosen ones.
Failure does not exist. There is only that which we
create to lead us back to who we really are.
It is all PERFECT.

We have given ourselves no greater gift than our
desire for the truth; to know who we are and
our purpose. In your desire to understand, you have
returned to the Source, that which is in YOU!

There are those who have tried to keep the Truth
from you, but even that was an illusion, for you
created it for the joy and delight of discovery.

Evolution is Creation in process. Your purpose
is to evolve to the Truth of who you really are;
to EXPERIENCE WHO YOU REALLY ARE.

There is nothing you need to do. Just be…
LOVE. Joy. Peace. Freedom. Prosperity.

Spread the Word. Set others free. Give The Gift.

That’s what love would do!

Is There Life After Death? Thich Nhat Hanh Answers Age-Old Question

Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh is continuing to receive treatment at a medical center in San Francisco he was flown to in July after experiencing a severe brain hemorrhage last year.

The renowned spiritual leader and founder of meditation center Plum Village is reportedly unable to speak as a result of the stroke but is able to walk, according to his spiritual community. The community launched a tour this week to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the publication of Hanh’s first book, The Miracle of Mindfulness.

Several months after the 88-year-old’s stroke, his community posted a video online in which Hanh addresses an age-old question: Is there life after death? In the video, the Buddhist teacher argues that when individuals realize that birth and death are part of a continual cycle of life, they will be liberated from the fear of dying.

“Where there is life, there is death. And where there is death, there is life,” Hanh said, explaining how the body is constantly “dying” and being “reborn” through the regeneration of cells.

“When we know that birth and death are together always, we are no longer afraid of dying,” he continued. “What you call birth and death are only transformation.”

Watch the video above for his full answer.

The Ego: An Illusion Pretending to Be Real

“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. One man thinks himself the master of others, but remains more of a slave than they are.” -Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Although Rousseau was mainly referring to human society as a whole, even 250 years ago he understood that humanity can upgrade itself and live in a golden age by returning to nature and living a balanced life at peace with ourselves and each other. It’s almost hard to believe that, as a result of the ego (something that isn’t even fundamentally real), we can come to a point in our timeline where there is a probable possibility of species self-annihilation, whether by accident or by focused intention by the the most megalomaniacal of minds within our human collective. It’s is a very dangerous way to live and leaves the uncertainty of a bright future, if a future at all, at unsettling heights.

It’s time to finally come to terms with how big of a role the human ego plays in all the social and political issues we see all around us and that affect our daily lives. Putting band-aids on the symptoms will not cure the very deep causes of those symptoms.

Thanks to some wonderful luminaries of humanity, we can upgrade our understanding of what ego is from the rather simplistic Freudian view to a model that allows for more complexity. After all, the universe/multiverse as we understand it, is infinite in nature. Within this infinite reality time is irrelevant…the creation of a highly complex non-entity structure-process that has an illusion-generating nature is not an impossibility. The growth, metamorphosis, and transformation of the energy of Infinity can concoct aspects of Reality (algae, poetry, entheogens, lacrosse, etc.), one of them being of such a high level of sophistication that it has influenced the sentient life cycles of entire species like the human race.

Yes, rather than being an actual entity, the ego is a structure-process that has an illusion-generating nature…something that has been backed by not only thousands of years of personal and direct experiences & eastern philosophies, but also by the study of the nature of Reality and its various aspects through quantum physics and other forward-thinking sciences. Having the understanding of what the ego is in this expanded view can help us understand that whenever the ego exists, we exist in a state of confused perception thanks to the generated illusions it creates. This is why activities such as meditation are helpful in the minimization of the ego’s influence over our lives.

Understanding the Illusion

The powerful emotions of anger, fear, envy, and others can be seen as if they were mechanically following tiny signals…as if there was a switch that was pressed. The illusion is that we are seeing something that is an actual experience within an objective reality. However, the fact is that it is mostly a replay of past experience that is modified a little to fit present circumstances. This replay is recorded again in order to add to the previous memory, which ingrains things even deeper, leading us to have a greater conviction in its real-ness.

The more we experience in this way, the deeper we get stuck in the illusion. This entire time, we stay in a state of confusion where we think that we are basing our actions on experience itself. The delusional ego has made us prisoners of something that isn’t even real.

Take a look at how prevalent this is in older individuals. The older a person gets, the more ‘experienced’ he or she is in this illusion that has essentially entrained the brain to think a certain way. The older a person is, the more sure he or she is that they “know” what they’re doing, making it very difficult for them to think differently or delineate from the path the illusion has trained them to go down. The essence of such a person’s life is now made up of a series of illusions.

Wouldn’t you like to be free?

Wouldn’t you like to be in control of your own life and not have it controlled by something that isn’t even intrinsically real in the first place? You can and you will…if you can over come the great obstacle of fear. This incredibly powerful tool of the ego is a reflex that is set in movement when something that’s identified as very necessary is seen as being threatened. This reflex of fear causes a person to find every possible way of protecting what is felt as being necessary, or it failing this, to create illusions of escape from the approaching danger. In the strong words of physicist David Bohm, “fear confuses, corrodes, and corrupts the mind.”

Impermanence – Awakening Through Insecurity- Part 1


Published on Aug 5, 2015

From the view of the separate self, this existence is inherently uncertain, and we are profoundly vulnerable. Our habitual reaction to insecurity fuels separation, and limits our capacity to live and love fully. These two talks explore the blessings of wisdom, love and freedom that naturally arise as, instead of resisting, we learn to open directly to the insecurity of impermanence.

Whispers from Eternity ~ Paramhansa Yogananda, edited by his disciple Swami Kriyananda

Many poetic works can inspire, but few, like this one, have the power to change your life. These verses rank with the greatest mystical poetry of all time: the works of St. John of the Cross, Rumi, Kabir, Mirabai, and Omar Khayyam. In this book Paramhansa Yogananda—the great master of yoga and author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi—shares his exquisitely beautiful thoughts and words filled with longing for the divine. Yogananda was not only a spiritual master, but a master poet, whose poems revealed the hidden divine presence behind even everyday things.

Each of these prayer-poems has been spiritualized by this great man of God. Open this book, pick a poem at random and read it. Mentally repeat whatever phrase appeals to you. Within a short time you will see your consciousness transformed. This book has the power to rapidly accelerate your spiritual growth, and provides hundreds of delightful ways for you to begin your own conversation with God.

This wonderful collection includes:

Sacred demands to the Infinite
Prayers of devotion
Chants and poems
Invocations to great world teachers
How to see this world as a dream

Prayer-demands for:

Devotion, Illumination, and Bliss
Wisdom, Prosperity, and Balance
Health, Guidance, and Discipline
Calmness and Overcoming Fears
Divine Love . . . and much more.

Hailed as “the father of Yoga in the West”, Paramahansa Yogananda – author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi – is regarded as one of the great spiritual figures of our time. Born in India on January 5, 1893, he devoted his life to helping people of all races and creeds to realize and express more fully in their lives the true beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit.

After graduating from Calcutta University in 1915, Yogananda took formal vows as a monk of India’s venerable monastic Swami Order. Two years later, he began his life’s work with the founding of a how-to-live school since grown to twenty-one educational institutions throughout India where traditional academic subjects were offered together with yoga training and instruction in spiritual ideals.

In 1920, he was invited to serve as India’s delegate to an International Congress of Religious Liberals in Boston. His address to the Congress and subsequent lectures on the East Coast were enthusiastically received, and in 1924 he embarked on a cross-continental speaking tour. Over the next three decades, Paramahansa Yogananda contributed in far-reaching ways to a greater awareness and appreciation in the West of the spiritual wisdom of the East. In Los Angeles, he established an international headquarters for Self-Realization Fellowship, the nonsectarian religious society he had founded in 1920.

Through his writings, extensive lecture tours, and the creation of Self-Realization Fellowship temples and meditation centers, he introduced hundreds of thousands of truth-seekers to the ancient science and philosophy of Yoga and its universally applicable methods of meditation.

Today, the spiritual and humanitarian work begun by Paramahansa Yogananda continues under the direction of Sri Daya Mata, one of his earliest and closest disciples and president of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India since 1955. In addition to publishing his writings, lectures and informal talks (including a comprehensive series of Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons for home study), the society also oversees temples, retreats, and centers around the world.

Listening to the Calling of our Hearts (01/21/2015)

Published on Jan 22, 2015
Listening to the Calling of our Hearts (01/21/2015) – In any moment, our intention – what we are energetically wanting – shapes our life experience. While our deepest intention may be to realize and live from loving awareness, we are often driven by egoic fear and grasping. This talk explores how mindfulness can recognize our prevailing intention, and by staying present, kind and accepting, we can reconnect with the deeper longings that carry us to awakening and freedom.

Freedom from Notions of Birth and Death, Dorothy Hunt

Published on Jan 5, 2015
When we deeply understand that the essential nature of reality is without separation, we begin to have a different relationship with the “appearance” of birth and death. The Unborn is beyond any notions of coming or going, being or non-being, and yet continually flows as Life itself, transforming its infinite expressions according to causes and conditions. While the “experiences” called birth and death happen every moment, and call forth many different responses, in Reality, separation does not exist. By letting go and dying into the present moment, we continually find Life’s great fullness and its great mystery.

Dorothy Hunt, Spiritual Director of Moon Mountain Sangha, teaches at the request of Adyashanti. She has practiced psychotherapy since 1967 and is the founder of the San Francisco Center for Meditation and Psychotherapy. Self-inquiry, as taught by Ramana Maharshi, led to the first of a series of awakenings. In meeting Adyashanti, she was invited to see beyond identification with the Absolute, allowing dualities to collapse. Dorothy is the author of Only This!, a contributing author to The Sacred Mirror, Listening from the Heart of Silence, and the on-line journal Undivided.

Happiness: Part 2 ~ Tara Brach


Published on Oct 25, 2014
Part 2: Happiness – The Buddha said that he would not teach about happiness if it were not possible to realize this experience of peace and deep wellbeing. In this three part series, we explore two kinds of happiness – that which arises out of particular causes and the experience of “happy for no reason.” The talks examine the attachments that block happiness, ways to “gladden the mind,” and the liberating presence that naturally expresses as pure happiness.
