The Art of Presence

The Art of Presence

What is ‘the singing’? You will all recognise this term from the books – after all, Book 4 was named exactly that, The Singing. But someone asked me recently, what exactly the ‘singing’ is, what I mean by it. Let me tell you: there is a rhythm to life. The...
On Spreading Joy

On Spreading Joy

I believe wholeheartedly that we, the extra-sensory feelers walking among the rest of the world, have a critical lesson to learn. Beginning right now, we need to stop spreading joy. I’m serious. It’s a trick, and I will explain. Spreading joy is the thing...

We Begin Where We Are

We Begin Where We Are

Song and Spirit
