What is the source of fulfillment? Does it come from finally getting that thing you’ve always wanted? The new job, the new house, new car, new relationship? In Part Two of our three part mini-series on life’s purpose and the temptations of wealth and success, we’ll explore the story of Ganesha and Kubera, the King of Gold. We’ll see what happens when you get caught up in the materialism of the world, always putting off your happiness until some time in the future once you’ve finally gotten that “thing”, and how this saps joy and fulfillment from your life. This is a great episode for you if you’ve ever found yourself thinking that once you get this thing or that thing, that you’ll finally be happy, only to then realize afterwards that you still feel unfulfilled.

Learn how to decode sacred images! Join us as we sit down with my good friend, the incredible sacred artist and author, Ekabhumi Ellik. Ekabhumi lives a life immersed in his sacred art, and recently added his own contribution to the Adult Coloring craze by releasing the Shakti Coloring Book. In this podcast we discuss mystical symbols and how we can begin to “read” sacred images by understanding basic concepts of what certain symbols mean. Why does this deity carry a sword but that one an mace? What does it tell us when a deity is holding a lotus flower? With this basic understanding, you can begin to look at sacred images in a whole new light!
