Site Ethos
The ethos of this site is to try to create a positive and supportive community for people of all sorts, especially those that are new to finding their truth.

We are here for a healthy exchange of ideas, and to help others find their truth. We are respectful of peoples differing views and we do not turn differences on opinion into drama’s, which inevitably end in hurt for both parties.

We accept that everyone has their own unique truths and we also understand that sharing these truths helps spiritual growth, so any attempt to suppress another’s truth will not be tolerated.

Some truths may conflict, this should be accepted in good cheer, it is to be expected and often exploring those differences can lead to a better understanding of ones own truth.

To seek others to conform to your beliefs is an ego affectation and it is to be discouraged. Most sites promote a particular truth, this site is to honour all truths, please remember this, especially in chat – if you are having an off topic conversation and someone wants to speak of their truth, let them, please avoid creating your own distractions.
