About

There is a real need to have clear guiding principles in life in order for me to attain peace and happiness.  There has been a monumental societal shift away from traditional values and which has not produced the desired results. The shift in consciousness towards consumerism has required a convergence of 1) the messaging that consumption is all-desirable and the new “God”, and 2) the gradual abandonment of traditional values and morality through the undermining of the value of religion. So the big question is – what will replace traditional ethics and morality as the compass for our journey of life? How do we address selfishness, greed, and apathy? What are the guiding principles for my life?
