We are more divided, more disconnected from one another, than any time in recent history. Most of us are living in what we might call a suffering state – hobbled by anxiety, comparison (largely due to the prevalence of social media), irritation and dissatisfaction.

Living in a beautiful state means to be present in life, free of inner conflict. We all have the power to live in a beautiful state by dissolving hurt and living in the present. The Four Sacred Secrets: For Love and Prosperity, a Guide to Living in a Beautiful State is filled with teachings and tools that unlock the power of transformed consciousness, focusing on four fundamental shifts.
