The Spiritual Warrior’s Responsibility

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 257th issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

Do you know who you are or the incredible power you possess? Are you aware of the magnificence of the place you came from or the evolutionary process that will eventually return you there?

For the most part, I’m not. I like to write about it and encourage others to be open to it, but I have yet to glimpse it in a real or meaningful way. Nor should I yet, because the point of being here is to gradually​ rediscover the truth of who we are and how we can help this world before returning to that heavenly place we dropped down from to be of service.

What I Want

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 253rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

What I want is simple.

I want the world to live in peace; not die in war. I want to see people treat each other as equals; not hate and kill each other over something as silly as religious or political differences. I want us to treat each other as one human race; not multiple races in perpetual conflict over what divides us.

I want to help people understand what love really is; not the romantic notions we’ve come to associate with love, but true love. This is love for all mankind, and with it comes the understanding that we are one race. We can thrive together or fall together. Continue reading

Writing and the Inner Voice

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Reposted from February 2016.

“You can build great wisdom and genius by spending time each day in grateful communion with your inner voice. What better way of creating a more fulfilling life than by mastering the art of tuning into your most inspired and ingenious self, your inner voice?

“This voice is your guide of all guides to a life of greatness. You cannot attune to this inspiring voice without living a more inspiring life. Genius, creativity, and a silent power emerge from your heart and mind the moment you do.” – Dr. John F. Demartini (source)

I decided to commit to writing because it opens me up to a wellspring of guidance and creativity. Continue reading

Video: 7 Krishnamurti Quotes On… Nothing

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Jiddu Krishnamurti was a sage, philosopher, and free thinker who encouraged people to look within for solutions to their problems and the problems in the world. He was born to a middle class family in South India on May 11, 1895, and left this earth on February 17, 1986. (1)

As followers of his work might know, Krishnamurti was “discovered” as a child by Theosophical Society leaders Annie Besant and Bishop Leadbeater. They claimed he was the “world teacher” the society had been waiting for. He would go on to have “mystical experiences” as a young man that provided him with a new, unique vision on life. (1)

This would lead him to disconnect from all religions, organizations, and philosophy-driven movements, including the Theosophical Society, and set out on a lone mission to enlighten the people with his unique philosophy. (1) Continue reading

Removing the Mask

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Longtime readers might notice I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been writing for the Weekly Awareness Guide but silent on the blog and social media.

Truth be told, I’m looking for inspiration. I’m unsatisfied with the way I’ve been writing and trying to figure out what I really want to do. This snippet from an astrological report by Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone explains it well: Continue reading

I Stand for Love

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

People who create things for a living often have something to represent; whether it’s a belief system, a new way of thinking, or something else they believe can change the world.

I listen to a lot of reggae music, for example, much of which is made by Rastafarians with a message to share. Sometimes the message is about Rastafarian philosophy, and sometimes it’s about freedom or rebellion against corruption. These musicians have something to say and a great outlet to get their message out.

This is one of many examples of creative minds on a mission to share their truth.

For many, a life of creative work and a message to share go together. Without a message, their work is missing something. These creative minds inspire me the most, because my work also relies on having something meaningful to share with you. Continue reading

You

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

You are a gift from above with unique talents that make you who you are.

You are a spark of the Godly consciousness responsible for the most beautiful, terrifying, breathtaking things in existence, and you have more power than you think.

Like the rest of humanity, you have a purpose on this planet. You’re on a mission, and the mission is yours to define. For guidance on what you should do, I suggest looking in your heart.

What are you passionate about? How can you make the most powerful impact on the world while doing something you love? Ask yourself this question and you could very well discover your purpose.
