Self-exploration is as much about preferences as it is about learning/grounding into objective morality and truth. That’s what freedom is all about, the opportunity to explore and refine our preferences without external interference, thereby allowing us to refine our individuality. Once we secure our objective liberties we are safe, but from there, we have to go do the things that free people do, in law called “enjoyment“, and for that, […] Read more »
What’s the Difference Between Liberty and Freedom?
Here’s a few random, but hardly exhaustive thoughts on the difference between liberty and freedom.

If you still think that your actions are what make a difference in the world, then you are still an effect, but if you have learned to integrate and neutralize your emotions, and have altered or are currently altering the core mind patterns responsible for your life, then you are […] Read more »
What Does it Mean to Be Balanced?
The Unity Process uses Jungian shadow work to balance the Hermetic Principles of gender, correspondence, polarity, and rhythm within our Selves, which results in having that balance reflected back to us by our external (macro) world. Many of the students of the hermetic principles, including what I can tell from Elite interpretations that I have read, attempt to find balance through an external means, outside-in, rather than through an internal means from the inside-out.
