Welcome friends...

You are invited to watch my February 2015 90 minute interview with Rick Archer on "Buddha at the Gas Pump." Click here to enjoy!

Maybe you’ve tasted awakening, the freedom that is your true nature. But the truth is you still get caught in your “story” of self-doubt, worry, anxiety, resentment, anger, guilt, or some other emotional reaction.

I teach the freedom practice, a simple way of seeing how everything in your mind—beliefs, thoughts, the ‘I’ or ego “story,” and every feeling and emotion—comes and goes, yet you, as the awareness watching it all, are always here. Doing the practice every time you experience conflict, upset, or suffering helps you awaken to a deeper sense of ease and well-being in the present.

While there is no “perfect” realization—we are still human, still have residues of old ego patterns—awakening is the most empowering experience we can have. As we breathe into it, we feel a deep sense of oneness with everything. We’re in the flow, with our mind clear and our heart wide open. We are truly happy, and our happiness doesn’t depend on anything outside ourselves—it shines on its own!

Then, when we bring our attention to the problems or challenges in life, whether health, family, relationships, work, money, creativity, or something else, we use our power of thought and intention to deal with it in a wise and loving way.

Love and blessings,


Thank you! All donations go to help Jim’s work of sharing the message and teachings of awakening through the internet to bring about more genuine peace, harmony, and cooperation in our world.
