Most people want to make a contribution to this world, to live a life of significance and to feel that they matter, and yet we wonder how how we can rise above ordinary, live our purpose and maybe even change the world for the better…

A Crash Course on Spirituality

Do yourself a favor and watch the wonderful video that I have embedded below. In it Vishen Lakhiani, who is the author of “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind” and the founder of Mind Valley, gives one of the most interesting presentations of how we can transcend our ordinary lives and become extraordinary visionaries. If this topic interests you, I assure you that this video will be well worth your time.

Here are the four levels of consciousness that are described in this video:

Raising Our Level of Consciousness

In the past five years I have escaped the culturscape, awakened and recoded my mind. As result I’ve been able to feel the miraculous flow of the universe guiding my life lately. In level one I was affected by my ego, my programming and my insecurities, but as I leveled up through soul work and learned how to love and accept myself, there has been a dissolution of my ego. Awakening is difficult because it not only shows you your shadows, it also makes you aware of the darkness that controls parts of the world. This, however, is a necessary aspect of ascension and our transformation from our tendency to rely upon logic and ego, to the realization that our hearts and our spirit are ultimately more powerful tools for helping us to become extraordinary.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
— Albert Einstein

We Are Spiritual Beings

It is said that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. I’ve come to truly appreciate this view of our existence as I have grown along my spiritual journey. As you awaken, you too will experience the wonderful and magical ways that God/Spirit/The Universe will work in your life. By surrendering your ego, Spirit will bless you with extraordinary knowledge and inspiration beyond your previous understanding.
