In this school called life, we will take various classes, which involve subjects or experiences we signed up for while still in Spirit.

For most souls, much of the curriculum is defined by the relationships they will experience on Earth. These relationships will present opportunities to learn valuable lessons that the soul wouldn't receive any other way. More

An Interview With Ysaye Barnwell
Omega: What was it like to grow up in a musical household? Ysaye: My father taught piano, violin, and viola in our home, and I wanted to do what they were doing.

Stan: We have more centers in the brain that are responsible for keeping us alive and preserving the species than we do for attachment. But attachment is part of survival, so we need to love because we need to attach to at least one other human being for survival. I know it sounds contradictory, but those are both there, and they're both linked to survival. More

An Interview With Cyndi Darnell
Omega: Why do you think it’s so difficult for us to talk about sex? Cyndi: I’m very interested in why sex is still such a taboo topic. Sex, sexuality, and connection are part of the human condition.
