Do you actually have any genuinely spiritual beliefs?

Yes. Lots of them.

They have little to do with religious teachings or dogma. In fact, I’m really not a fan of religion. But that’s a story for another day. Read more

Isn’t all the “self-improvement” talk really egocentric in regard to the state of the world? Why do people obsess over becoming the best versions of themselves when a huge part of the world population doesn’t even have access to clean drinking water?

As a long-term student and beneficiary of the Law of Attraction, I’d have to say no.
