In this episode, Ervin and Alison are joined by Michael Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center. Agape is a term from ancient Greek meaning “unconditional love” and since its founding in 1986, the Agape Center has pursued a mission of fostering a living environment for individuals to realize that they are unique emanations of God, the Love-Intelligence governing the Universe.
Today Michael and our hosts discuss the distinction between our ego and the subtle voice of guiding consciousness, and how to navigate between the two. From there, we also engage in a conversation about intentionality, the costs and benefits of new technology, and how to lead a meaningful life.
