Sages through the ages have emphasized the importance of self-enlightenment.  Life’s greatest rewards come from our continual pursuit of self-understanding.  Great religions, spiritual teachers, and wisdom gurus include the precept that life’s ultimate truth is within us. “... the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21)  The following essays expand the self-consciousness that makes us powerful creators.
