I am happy to share the names and websites of mentors and teachers who helped me by writing and speaking words that confounded my brain and mental processes while challenging and unraveling the personal identity, beliefs, and attitudes preventing me from fully maturing and seeing clearly what is.

These paradoxical, even painful reads seemed to have been just what I needed to move this character more deeply into self-inquiry and perceive the identity traps needing to be explored before coming upon a full and emotional and psychological maturing, healing, and awakening.

In my experience, and from what I have read of other full awakenings, exposing the myth of the personal self opens wide the portal of deeply repressed and obscured emotions and beliefs still swimming beneath the surface of consciousness waiting to be healed and dissolved in the light of pure awareness.

I offer my deepest gratitude and respect for these beings of light, both past and present.

Also included here are a few links I found helpful about the science of the brain, the nature of the mental processes/mind, and other topics providing significant insight, in my opinion, along the pathless path to what is obvious yet is hidden in plain sight.
