MindThatEgo’s Mission Statement
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…“Hermes Trismegistus
MindThatEgo is an exploration of truth. The micro and the macro frame this exploration. Sources are diverse, from mindfulness, meditation, psychology, quantum physics, and much more. Yet they all point to a perennial philosophy: our true nature is consciousness itself, interconnected with the universe.
The micro exploration is inspired by non-dual traditions such as Advaita Vedanta, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Its quest for truth is through subjective experience and deep self-enquiry into the nature of reality. Equally, the understanding of the vastness of the psyche and its “contents” is grounded in depth psychology, most notably the visionary work of Carl Jung, and his map of the unconscious and the mythological.
Throughout history mystics have been viewed as rebels and heretics, acting against institutionalised religion and instead discovering a personal relationship with God. Since the Age of Enlightenment, the modern mystic and seeker is viewed as acting against rationality, logic, and the dogma of material science (known as scientism).
What, then, resides in the space between power structures? Where does the seeker turn when rebelling against dogma? The macro exploration is to unpick, dissect and investigate why we believe what we believe. To get to the root of these beliefs. Is the story of the material universe true? Is science as objective and narrow as we are led to believe? What metaphysical knowledge has been lost, misinterpreted, suppressed, or censored?
A New Worldview
“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.”Buckminster Fuller
Through this ongoing exploration, I’ve pieced together an alternative explanation of reality, the Enchanted Worldview. This builds upon many of humanity’s most innovative thinkers and spiritual teachers, including the “founding fathers” of quantum physics, who have challenged the material view of reality, which sees consciousness as created by the brain, and ego-based separation as normal.
A worldview that includes spiritual dimensions and understands the universe as sentient, not mechanical, offers a greater understanding for mental illness and non-ordinary experiences. And it details the farther reaches of human potential — what some traditions call self-realisation, superconsciousness, or enlightenment.
It’s my aim to cut through the noise, and provide a clear, direct path to self-realisation and oneness. My desire is to capture the language of the cosmos, the science of the soul, the beauty of the divine, the poetry of the psyche, to offer guidance when transitioning from one reality to the next.
My hope is that MindThatEgo offers guidance on how to overcome the ego and its limitations, how to move past mental activity and limited concepts of reality, how to heal, how to break through limitations, and expand in awareness, to become more compassionate, more loving, more heart-centred, more enchanted with life’s mystery and magic.
After all, it’s what the world needs.
