$28 - ENTELECHIES
Entelechies means the realization of potential. Realizing you've underestimated something, that you weren't seeing the whole picture. When it comes to designing your own reality, nothing will offer you more choice, more entelechies than my translation the metaphysical magnum opus, A Course in Miracles.
I bought my first copy of the Course in 2011, and was immediately repelled by the Christ-laden lexicon. Words like "salvation", "atonement" and "forgiveness" triggered childhood memories of God the Punisher, a fictitious character I am proud to have abandoned. However, once I was desperate enough for change, the words didn't bother me. Like fellow Course teacher Marianne Williamson said "I was too depressed to care.".
What I learned and continue to learn during my contemplation of this metaphysical masterpiece, has been too good not to share.
I inspired many people to buy the Course, insisting "you can do what I do, if you just read this book!" , but I continued to hear the same complaints from people, the same ones I used to have. Complaints like:
"I can't get through it."
"I read two pages and put it down."
"It's too heavy for me."
I began this book as a way to show people that you don't have to be a Christian to integrate the principles of A Course in Miracles into your life. What it turned into has been something far deeper than I could ever have imagined. By combining the teachings of the principles with theoretical physics and Taoist thought and explaining it in a secular, no-nonsense way, you are able to seamlessly integrate these teachings into your life. The results are miraculous.
The format follows the traditional steps of the Course. 365 daily lessons delivered to your email to help you see the world differently through the lens of radical forgiveness. These teachings are supplemented by the occasional audio, video, or meditation to help you dive deeper into your own psyche.
Instead of relating these mental shifts to the salvation of an external godhead, we access and define our own infinite nature through contemplating the illusion of spacetime. We understand outer space through studying inner space. Esoteric storytelling is replaced by quantum thought. By integrating Taoist principles we learn to release resistance and control, something not fully explained in the Course. Sharing from my own experience allows the reader to see how these lessons are practically applied. The result is a daily dose of morning meds. Meds being meditation. What makes the format of the Course so powerful is the method through which it slowly but surely allows you to familiarize yourself with reflexive forgiveness, and the practice of watching your thoughts.
Each day you'll receive a lesson in your inbox. A concept to chew on all day. They are short and sweet. Each lesson is prompted by the classic chronology of the Course and offers access to the original text, but my interpretation is contemporary, original, and highly potent.
The price is $28 - the same as the book on Amazon.
$11:11 - THE BRUJA REPORT
Spiritual principles can seem like impersonal information until you see how it's integrated into daily life. If you're a visual learner, seeing how these practices are lived instead of just talked about will be key in helping you create your conscious change now.
Bruja is perfect for someone who is familiar with spiritual language, not easily offended, actively digging deep, and prepared to do the work will find this a innovative and convenient way to get your daily dosage of spirituality and keep you from losing the plot in your day to day life. This is perfect for new teachers (any kind) who are wanting to deepen their dharma but don't have time to read all day.
The Bruja Report is private spiritual conversation on Instagram Stories, with archived episodes, blogs, and relevant reposts available on Magic FM . Several times a week I post videos explaining the less-talked about spiritual concepts like fetishes, addiction, trauma, mirroring, and mining your psychic powers.
The conversation moves fast and works best for those who are already familiar with the teachings of Spirituality 101 , although anyone can benefit. I keep it very simple, and it's the best way to see what I'm into NOW. Humor creates indelibility, and members of Bruja have an open mind and don't offend easily. As usual the spirituality is served up in a reverently irreverent way. I get straight to the point, use memes and humor - and I don't fuck around. Q&A happen frequently through the LIVE option and YOUR questions are answered anonymously in the stories (submit via DM) or during a live broadcast.
A screenshot of your receipt is required for admission (with your friend request, please). Venmo is also available @thebrujareport.
