Paper – Principles of Transformation, Shifting Paradigms – WingMakers
These are two of the most profound spirituals
essay we've seen. The essence of the message in the first beautiful seven-page
paper is that humanity is now transitioning from a place of looking for
God and meaning outside of ourselves, to finding it within. The more
we open to spiritual guidance from within ourselves, the more joyfully and
meaningfully we can move through the challenges of today and the days to
come. The second incisive, ten-page essay focuses on the roots of the
hierarchical system which keeps us from accessing our own divine essence.
These two inspiring essays are written from an incredibly broad, universal
perspective. Two-page summaries of each paper are also available.

By each one of us making a commitment to work on these issues both inside of ourselves and out in the world–and to inspire others to do the same–we can change our collective direction and build a solid foundation for a brighter future."
