PLATO'S ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE (FROM PLATO'S "REPUBLIC", BOOK VII, 514a-c to 521a-e)[ Note : interpolated comments in green ] And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened : -- "Behold ! , human beings living in a underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den. Here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads. Above and behind them a fire is blazing at a distance, and between the fire and the prisoners there is a raised way; and you will see, if you look, a low wall built along the way, like the screen which marionette players have in front of them, over whic...

Ancient Wisdom, featured
  Spiritual balance and life balance are an understanding of being content in your material world as well as your spiritual world.

Being psychic is not the most painless ability one can have. There are certain side effects that come with this. Psychics, light workers, chakra healers and even masseuses have complained about taking on the energy of the people that they are working on.
