Part 1 of this mini-series, “Oh, You Want a Renaissance?” discussed the mind’s constant shifting of gears. One moment it asserts the status quo, the next it challenges it.

Perhaps we can normalize it, expect it…maybe even have some humor about it.
Part 2, goes a bit deeper, providing a basic map for the concept of Integration. This post also discusses some of the differences between integration in conventional psychology, and integration for spiritually and metaphysically oriented people. It includes some considerations for people who resonate with the idea “We Are All One.” If you are a Self integrating Experiences, then you must actually be the thing choosing which experiences to integrate and how.
The larger your reality, the larger your Self – and vice versa. And the larger your menu of experiences to integrate. We can choose to stay small. But once you see big, one’s choices become big. Even if you prefer the choice to stay small.
The first section of the video has a few minor audio glitches that haven’t occurred in any prior video. Having learned from this process, it won’t be an issue in future sessions.
