When his disciples asked how to attain Self-realization, Ramana directed them to meditate on a single question: […]
If you could make a 30 second speech to the entire world, what would you say? If you were going to die at midnight, what would you be doing at 11:45pm? How do you really KNOW anything for sure? If you had all the money in the world but still had to have some kind […]
The main reason I wanted to dabble in the world of Ayahuasca was to answer the many questions I have on my constant pursuit of truth. What is the purpose of life? What is our purpose as part of humanity? How do we live happily and peacefully? What is consciousness? What is truth? They were […]
Hi, my name is Jordan Lejuwaan. I’m the creator of HighExistence and I wanted to tell you how all of this began.
