In the use of these games I monitor my kids performance in school, their outside play, their…Continue

This means being in connection with our Self, knowing our Self. Most of the time we are in a fog and cacophony of daily minutiae, mired in our ego approach to our relating and our life. We are shut down and completely disconnected from our Self. Who are you? What is the point…Continue
