Working for Truth with John Butler The practice of daily meditation is like following a trail of sugar – its sweet.

It is working for truth. – John Butler – Btw – With meditation I…Continue reading If you want to discover the Truth, you have to be brave…
Moojibaba invites us to use this time when many around the world are in self-quarantine for the highest aim: to discover the peace and harmony of our true nature. “Amongst all the activities that we do, we rarely give enough time to sit quietly by ourselves. I would like to introduce to you not just to sit alone, but to…Continue reading Begin Discovering Your True Self Today ~ Guided Meditation with Mooji ~
Our relationships today are based on our identifications with our thought and feelings. I say I am related to you, but all the while I am trying to judge you on the basis of my likes and dislikes, my opinions, preferences, and prejudices. I judge you on the basis of that. I react to you on the basis of that.…Continue reading If man only knew how to learn the greatest art of living!
Now, what do we mean by the word “psyche” ? The human consciousness, for the convenience of verbal communication and intellectual study, is generally divided into the conscious, the subconscious, and the unconscious. Not that there are three such divisions in the consciousness; not that these are watertight compartments in the consciousness; not that they exist by themselves independent of…Continue reading The futility of indulging in the mechanistic activity of thinking.
David Bohm was an American scientist who has been described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century, and who contributed unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, neuropsychology and philosophy of mind. At the same time he was friend, dialog og cooperation partner of the spiritual teacher – Jiddu Krishnamurti.

Another great video that addresses the current Corona Virus situation. John encourages us to use our common sense – feeling, looking, listening. When we’re present, we’re not absent. “If we’re present, we cannot be lost in the future or buried in the past, and all our worries disappear.”
Silence is never boring. Much of daily talk is just ‘ego to ego’. In silence we find access to space – space to be ourselves – and freedom – which really is the same as love. Of course, we all thing our own talk is interesting – its only other people who are boring! Yet so much of what we…Continue reading When you get so bored with your own mind, you just let go
Try to understand exactly what this sleep is, because if you can feel what it is, you have already started to become alert – already you are on the way out of it. What is this sleep? How does it happen? What is the mechanism? What is the modus operandi? The mind is always either in the past or in…Continue reading What does it mean to live in deep sleep?
And this is what Heraclitus says in this passage. Now try to understand him. He says: “Men are as forgetful and heedless In their waking moments Of what is going on around them As they are during their sleep” In sleep you are not aware of what goes around you, but in your waking hours are you aware of what…Continue reading That’s why you go on missing Buddhas, Christs, Heraclituses and others…
Why I underline the simplicity of the spiritual message is because this message is simple. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is easy to integrate it into our lives. For example, I can say that all that is necessary is to stop snapping and cherishing the thoughts and the convictions in our head. That sounds simple, doesn’t it?…Continue reading We seem not to give those simple spiritual truths a chance as well as the necessary attention
John’s of surrender to life, that can be admired, instead of analyzed and declared unjust and cruel, is in my experience one of the main gates to happiness and fulfillment.
Mooji is one of the spiritual mediators who has provided me with advice and encouragement over a long period. I am deeply grateful to him for that. He is also one of the spiritual teachers I once attended in Monte Sahaja together with my husband. Mooji is often attacked on Facebook and probably on many other social media. I remember…Continue reading Tenderly shaking those who really want to wake up
The way of the ego in the world is best expressed in the following way – “Me, Me, Me. Mine, Mine, Mine. More, More, More. I’m right. I’m right. What’s in it for me. How do I take advantage of this for myself. It’s all about me.” When you have 6 billion humans on the planet living in this way,…Continue reading Now we have a choice
Compassion and Love are not feelings or emotions. They have nothing to do with our cultural conditioning. Compassion and Love are the qualities of our true nature, recognized or not. This realization comes from the collapse of the illusion of separation. It is the realization that we are One. Such realization can not be taught to us. It comes naturally…Continue reading Compassion and love come from the collapse of the illusion of separation
A great nation is like a great man:When he makes a mistake, he realizes it.Having realized it, he admits it.Having admitted it, he corrects it.He considers those who point out his faultsas his most benevolent teachers.He thinks of his enemyas the shadow that he himself casts. – Tao Te Ching, chapter 61 – Is one who is awakened a better…Continue reading Some words about the similarities and differences between the awakened people
