Sorry Seekers, There’s No Magic Bullet
(Practicing What I Preach)

When I first started down this road of self awareness, spiritual awakening, personal growth, healing, living more authentically, seeking truth and meaning… whatever you choose to call it (I mostly call it soul liberation), I thought that all the people who I was learning from, all the so-called gurus, totally had their shit together.
I thought they had it all figured out. I thought that they’d discovered a magic bullet, hidden secret, or attained some exclusive knowledge about the mystery of life. I thought that’s how they had acquired the right and expertise to counsel others, write books, give advice, teach classes, run retreats, do speaking engagements, etc.
I thought these folks were authorities because they had discovered the answers and were now living totally blissful, spiritually enlightened lives filled with continuous inner peace, rainbows and unicorns.
