Knowing Spirit.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


You once wrote, “The mind says you are your ego, a fixed “I” that is separate from the rest of the world……..Really feeling safe, peaceful and content comes from knowing that your true self is pure spirit, unbounded in time and space.”

My question is ” how do you know?” How do you know that there is such a thing as spirit, that there more to us than just the physical body, that everything is not a product of the brain? And if what you say really is true how does one go about setting the mind free?

I write this with a genuine desire to know and hope to hear from you.


The truth of your own essence or spirit is not secondhand knowledge you take on faith or authority. It is something you only know for yourself. Ask yourself right now, “what is it within me that understands the words I am reading or the sounds I am hearing?” That something is your true self. It is there before the brain activity associated with the present thoughts you have right now and it will be there after those thoughts are gone and replaced by other thoughts. This inner awareness is ever-present and is not dependent on the changing body, mind and ego.

The knowingness of the true self by itself is not a sensory based knowledge or an intellectual certitude. It is self-evident knowledge that does not depend on any external validation. Consciousness is aware of its own existence through its own consciousness. When the higher Self experiences its own nature, that experience carries with it the knowledge that it is not the ego. There is no other reference for the Self that could validate it except the Self. This is why the sages have always emphasized personal experience as the proof of spirit and not intellectual understanding.
