    We live in a post-modern world where our cultural, intellectual and artistic way of being is unclear. Globalization has resulted in diverse, complex and contradictory belief systems. A new paradigm of ambiguity and constant change has emerged. Western civilization, especially western thought, is experiencing a third historical shift and we are all caught up in the birthing process. We are living in a time of great transformation. It is a time of significant change and less certainty, resulting in turbulence and chaos for many. The existential crisis we now find ourselves in is the death of permanence and it requires that we let go of control, order and certainty; the staples of modern man.

    Our first societal shift was from being a nomadic culture to a cultivation culture. Instead of following game we planted seeds. Our second historical shift was the industrial revolution, when machinery replaced human labor. We now find ourselves in a new meta-shift, ...

    While working as a Spiritual Coach, I made an interesting discovery… that an individual’s spiritual gifts (or psychic abilities) was often tied to their dominant sense.

    According to science, we have five known senses: hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling and tasting. In humans, only the first three are normally dominant. Their NLP labels are: auditory, visual and kinesthetic. NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming, has performed clinical research on sense-use by humans and the results are very interesting. (The technical term used by NLP to describe the dominant sense is “NLP Predicates”.)

    What do we mean by dominant sense? Our dominant sense is the sense that we trust the most. Its use is so innate that we are often not even consciously aware of it and it becomes an integral part of our survival mechanisms. As small children, we learn to favor one sense over another and eventually one becomes our dominant sense. The selection process largely depends upon environmental conditions, like our family, our schooling, ...

    Throughout time and culture people have needed heroes, and these heroes have arisen in myth and reality to serve humankind. Though every era has presented its own challenges that must be transcended, it is only in modern history that we have been faced with the conscious possibility of irretrievably damaging the planet in ways that could extinguish all life. Our era's need for heroes is, therefore, perhaps greater than at any other time. Where will we find a large enough measure of heroism to save us not only from the forces of nature but the forces within ourselves? What can we bring forward from the past, and what do our new, unique problems require? This discussion explores the origins of the hero and the muse, the creative process, the chakra system, Ruumet's model of psycho-spiritual ...

    Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being (from the Greek ὄν, genitive ὄντος: "of that which is", and -λογία, -logia: science, study, theory). In addition it is the study of existence or reality, and basic categories of being. Ontology is also defined as the inquiry into being in so much as it is being, or into that which has distinct existence, particular properties belonging to things or categories. Psychologically this relates to the study of categories of being or states of being.
    States of consciousness do not just change how we think about things, but how we experience our world. In other words, our state of being is changed, our world is different, and our existence (what Heidegger named Dasein) is also different.
