All spiritual traditions agree that daily practice is essential for transcendent lucidity. While it seems like silent contemplation is simply doing nothing, it has a profound significance for spiritual development. Neil Kramer relays the value of learning to stop and witness all that is going on around us, as it affords the opportunity for wisdom to arise. The deeper we look into ourselves, the deeper we are able peer into the mysteries of the universe.

I Think that Neil does a wonderful Job exploring a rather difficult and nuanced subject. Well done much appreciated.

The format of this series is difficult to watch. The splicing of stock photos or visuals moving while cutting back to Neil unexpectedly is awkward and takes away greatly from following what is being said.

He is so darn eloquent.

It is wonderful to listen to someone that can think and reason.

Fatigued, overwhelmed, and slightly dismayed by the paltry fruits of my work, I went for a walk. On my return journey back to the office, it occurred to me that all was indeed well. The work had gone well enough. I had even enjoyed the process. Many new things could arise from it. My mild anxiety and depression was not related to anything. It was mainly my over-reactive mind yearning for more rewards. Then I watched this show during lunch, and the lesson was clear. Doing or not doing, achieving or not achieving, having or not having are all the same. It's all about who you are on the journey. It's enough for us to be conscious and aware; everything else is just a bonus. Consciousness alone is the bounty we all have but don't pause to value.

I am very surprised that their are not enough show of this caliber; for takes someone who really have lived, studied, and have been many time in great thought, contemplating Life and oneself.?
Neil has seen a great deal of life, perhaps spoken with many that came before and the books that speak truth!
I would like to thank, for having, Neil Kramer on this series, he is the man for the job! Extremely well done, a word comes to mind - "Brilliant". I do hope that many people will discover this series and share it with those they love, for only great things will come of this. I find that it's like a fine wine; as an example, you go back and ingest it's wisdom time and time again.

I witness many people's realities. I have studied Psychics and those who go by many names (Starseeds, Wanderers, Old Souls, Lightworkers, Walk-ins, Channelers, Shamans, Indigos, Earth Angels, etc). I see these as the same group of people following slightly different paths in their beliefs. We are those whom Doctors might decide to medicate for our experiences. Yet, many of us live Happy lives without such add-ons. David Wilcock has introduced me to a slightly different path with many similarities, the Light Warriors as opposed to Light Workers... as Cobra would put it. I have studied the testimony of Corey Goode, Cobra, and Benjamin Fulford.

If my purpose is to witness, I am a very accomplished person. Yet, most would only believe that if I put my findings into a book, and it sells well.

As a someone entering a new cycle of life (retirement), I was struggling with determining what to do with myself. To just be--what a wonderful concept! Love the series, especially this episode! Thank you!
