Many people ask themselves “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”
To answer “Who am I?”, they might begin by looking into their own personality.
To answer “Why am I here?”, they might turn to a spiritual teaching or philosophy.
But ultimately, both searches end up in the same place — who we are is why we are here.
In other words, your personality — with all its quirks and limitations — is no accident. It is a kind of vehicle for your higher self (or soul) to operate in the world.
And while many psychologists, philosophers and other thinkers regard spirituality as meaningless or irrational, I cannot deny my own experiences nor can I dismiss the experiences of others so lightly.
The purpose of this website is to be a hub of information, inspiration and occasionally entertainment about who and what we really are — beyond (but including) the personality.
For my blog posts about the latest research in psychology and neuroscience, including positive psychology and transpersonal psychology, see Research. For journal accounts of my own experiences, including meditation, manifestation, self-discovery, spiritual awakening and past life regression, see Journal. And for items in the world’s news that are relevant to all of these topics, see News.
My perspective is informed by various spiritual teachings, particularly those which focus on consciousness evolution and enlightenment. See Teachings. You could also take a look at my various Articles, or check out my list of recommended reading under Books.
