about Male-Female Duality

Form and Essence

One of the most important lessons I learned in spirituality was around the concept of Form. Form, the outward expression of the philosophy behind any religion. Form can mean wearing orange robes, black robes, white robes. It can also mean honouring your ancestors through various ways such as visiting their grave, having a home altar…

I AM climate change

Yesterday Donald Trump announced that the USA is retrieving from the Paris climate change agreement. Needless to say, social media is full of people being angry at this fact.
