Mekael and Bill are the hosts of the Almost Awakened Podcast. They have spent a ton of time diving into human development, human behavior, having deconstructed unhealthy systems and communities and what they have learned from that. As they have built with others, a vibrant healthy community where authenticity and vulnerability matter, they want to share with you what they have learned, point you to good books, provide you with the tools and resources to help you awaken, and share with you their experiences in doing shadow work and recognizing ego and working to reduce unhealthiness in our lives.

“Where do atheists get meaning”? I find that atheists can be more awake than the religious, but not necessarily, and that atheists can be just as moral or even more moral than the religious. I also was surprised to find that most atheists find some form of meaning ironically in forcing goodness through various dogmatic cult-like agendas, even clinging to the belief that they should force-save humanity, even if its as dogmatic as religion doing the same crap.
Loved Hope for flowers.
