Hello beautiful souls

How are you today? Feeling good? Whatever you are experiencing... it will pass. Yes, time washes us down this eventful river of life, and the key is to be fully present, as we travel. And where is is our emotional state while traveling? Are we creating a higher, vibrant life today or are we digging a hole of anger and frustration?

Klar gibt's Ausserirdische!

Beim Studium der Sanskrittexte des alten Indiens trifft man auf phantastische Beschreibungen von intergalaktischen Reisen, vielfältigen humanoiden Spezies auf unzähligen bewohnten Planeten, einem kosmischen Rat, einer kosmischen Regierung, verschiedenen Zeitdilitationen sowie vielen weiteren Details über die Ausdehnung und Struktur des Universums.

I see you feel estranged, incomplete, dissatisfied

Anything for a refuge, an…
