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.

Are You Ready for a Spiritual Revolution? – Part 2/2


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Continued from part 1 (read full post here).

We Don’t Need Them

We don’t need Big Brother watching our every move for ‘national security’ purposes and pouncing on us when they think we’ve done something wrong.

We don’t need militarized police forces causing mayhem in the streets, and we definitely don’t need political pundits in expensive suits screaming at us to conform to a corrupt system that serves them and their rich friends.

We need a new way of life free from the greed and corruption of the one percent, who’ll tell us any lie imaginable just to push their agenda forward. We also need a world free from the greed and corruption of the common man, whose negativity enables the world’s suffering. Continue reading

Heal Yourself, Heal the World



By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

It’s easy to ignore our personal issues by focusing solely on what’s wrong with the world, but in doing so, we enable our shortcomings to continue and avoid crucial lessons that contribute to the growth of the soul.

We should obviously raise awareness of the dysfunction in society, but we can do it without ignoring our own issues. If our personal choices affect the world like some say, then we can enable the changes the world needs by making personal changes of our own.

In my opinion, the best way to help the world is to match our personal changes with dedicated activism. We can strive to become better and make the world a better place, and one of them doesn’t have to replace the other. Continue reading

Merging Revolution and Spirituality


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

This was written for the 176th issue of The Culture of Awareness Weekly Newsletter, which I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the newsletter helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content on the blog, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post.

I wrote a lot about myself and my path here, but if you can bear with me, hopefully you can all get something out of it.

I met up with an old friend recently, and he asked me a lot about my work; the writing, blogging and the topics I discuss. I wasn’t ‘awake’ or spiritual at all when I used to spend time with this person, and it surprised him to see how different I’ve become.

My personality is the polar opposite of what it was when I was younger, and I was headed down a negative path back then. Looking back on it makes me thankful I changed direction. I didn’t yet have any solid spiritual foundation to stand on, so my life was all about friends and having fun. Continue reading

Spiritual Revolution Is Driven by Love


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Spirituality can be summed up by the understanding that beyond our surface perception exist infinite, blissful dimensions of consciousness to which we’ll return upon physical death, and most people not only use spirituality to try to reconnect with those realms while they’re still alive, but to make life fun and adventurous with assurance that consciousness continues after death.

No matter what we do on earth or how good or bad life is for us, we’ll eventually be away from all of it and back in a blissful place where we know we’re loved and accepted.

While we have a lot to do if we really want to change the world, spiritual evolution doesn’t require us to do anything at all.

It requires the simple recognition that our creator and higher consciousness are constantly with us, and we can call on them for strength and guidance when we struggle. It does require some commitment to the path we plan to walk, but the only real commitment lies in constantly surrendering the ego to that higher part of ourselves that can work through us with ease if we let it.

Unity: The Conscious Community’s Next Step


By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

There are various active conscious groups on the internet, and it doesn’t take much to find one to which you can contribute. No matter what unique beliefs you hold, chances are you can find a group that suits your needs and helps you grow into the socially and spiritually aware activist so many people strive to be.

It’s great that there are so many groups out there with different philosophies, and the only downside is that they remain separate from each other. Their division could be caused by the fact that their beliefs and the things they strive for are so different, but I think the main cause is that they really haven’t tried to connect.

Every group is so secure in what it’s doing that it hasn’t taken the time to branch out and connect with other socially/spiritually aware groups who have different beliefs but strive for change in similar ways, and in my opinion, our next step will be to unite the various groups with respect for our differences and commonalities.

Video: The System Is Beyond Repair

Here, I talk about Bernie Sanders and the idea that the system can’t be repaired by any politician. It has to come down so the people can create something new together, but we can’t change anything if we put all of our faith into any presidential candidate.
