Whenever we … Continue reading We cannot imagine nothing …
I've noticed a tendency in some people to think they are "telling the truth" to others when in fact it is just their ego speaking. I'm not referring only to the vile abuse prevalent on some social media sites but to many live interactions I've had with people, male and female.

Some people believe, and even teach, that "we cannot recover from grief but can only learn to live with it". This, in my experience and others I know, is utterly untrue. And a gross disservice to anyone struggling to come to terms with, and heal from, the grief that naturally arises from the death … Continue reading End the Suffering of Grief

The manifestation teachings that are out in the world revolve primarily, and often exclusively, on teaching the practitioner that they can "get whatever they want". These false teachings play to human egoity and mostly focus on getting more … Continue reading Conscious Love Intelligence
In the Assume the Change meditation, my guiding words assume that the essence of who and what we share as our mutual I AM Consciousness – i.e. unconditional love – can manifest as the person you would love to be, who lives the life you would love to live. Ok, you say, I'm cool with … Continue reading The Power of Love
I named this blog "Silent Wisdom" in honour of the silent, unfathomable, inexplicable knowing that resides in the Heart of us all as our mutual essence.
