YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE | Rev. Charles M. Taylor

Learn principles and practices on how to reassign the ego and elevate the soul. That is when our destiny, our true potential awakens, not just for us but in service to the whole world.  Somewhere in the dance between the ego and the soul is the truth of our wild ride on earth. We are most in alignments and co-creative brilliance when the soul is driving the bus, but most of us are unwitting hostages while the ego drives us around revisiting all kinds of spots we’d rather not.
