It is the basis of creation creating.

What single truth that you inherently know and trust provides all the above?  Remember, it is not God, love, honesty or freedom. 

It is four words.
 Their initials are ENAM.

These words describe a prime fact of the world that, to our loss, we are usually socialized to overlook.
The words are spelled out at

This singlular organic truth will enable you to help yourself and others transform our destructive ways into constructive, whole-life relationships.  

When the truth of ENAM is missing, our personal, social and environmental well-being deteriorate.

Without letting this vital, hidden true f
act of life help us think and feel accurately, the lies that bring us to our troubles will surely continue. What is to stop them?

We know the existance of this core truth sounds impossible.  It is not. Rather, it is a readily accessible reality. Our lives are trained to overlook it so that the exploitive money-world can excessively profit by selling us substitutes for it.

When it comes to the core truth of life in balance and beauty, there is no substitute for the real thing.  Substitutes usually produce adverse side effects.

We invite you to
discover and explore ENAM
