The mission of this blog is Connecting to the Divine Source and/or finding the Divine Spark with us to cultivate skills of well being and find meaning and purpose in life. This blog explores different spiritual wisdom traditions. Spirituality is sometimes defined as the ongoing unfolding personal experience or journey of connecting to the transcendent, sacred dimension, God, Universe, or Divine Source.  The blog also explores worldwide religious traditions and psychology to cultivate skills of well being.

Paramahansa Yogananda describes God as Love, Consciousness, Absolute Existence and Ever New Joy. Dr. Maya Angelou defined God as “All” and that the soul yearns for the All. In this blog, the key assumption is there is the Divine Spark in all of us and we originate from All and eventually return back to All. .

Donald Winnicott talks about the authentic self emerging from the “false self”
