There’s so much that we want good n’ GONE. But here’s the thing: nothing is leaving your life or your thought patterns until you give it the light of your consciousness—your love.
Why do we do meditations on the Full Moon? What’s the “dark of the moon?” Does… it have anything to do with Pink Floyd?
It’s fairly easy to conceive of a collective consciousness that is loving. Essentially, people who are compassionate, kind, uplifting to the world.
“Who is this ego that is always against me? Who is this a**hole?” asked Mary. (Name changed for privacy.) THIS is why I adore our Heart Centered Members. Deep, curious, no holding back.

Your shadow is where your wounds hide, waiting for the light of your attention. It’s the stuff beneath the distractions of workaholism and comparison and bravado.
