How to know we are not separate?

Great example of the conflict between direct experience and the mind. Francis, as always, razor-sharp and clear like the purest spring water. Absolutely recommended, despite the poor quality of the recording. In the second video Francis discusses judgement and humility – the acceptance of our powerlessness as a separate person. “We should reserve investigation and meditation to those times when…Continue reading How to know we are not separate?

Looking for the pleasant? Looking for states? Or looking for truth?

Welcome the totality of your experience without any interpretation, judgement, comparison, conclusion. Just the facts. Let the facts unfold. Ask yourself the question “Under the current circumstances are there still personal thoughts, personal feelings present?” Understand that sense perceptions are impersonal, bodily sensations are impersonal, practical thoughts are impersonal, creative thoughts are impersonal, thoughts about the truth are impersonal. Now…Continue reading Looking for the pleasant? Looking for states? Or looking for truth?

The responsibility is only yours and yours alone

I started to distance myself completely from the so-called spiritual scene because its childish hypocrisy has repelled me. Although I like to use many spiritual terms, I cannot find myself in the understanding of the spirituality that I came across. People who reside in the spiritual scenes seem to believe that awakening to life in the here and now, or…Continue reading The responsibility is only yours and yours alone

If you don’t know how to tie a bow yourself, it’s easy to say that to tie a bow is impossible

All the voices you will find here, on this page, including my own, are only here, so that you look for yourself, examine and discover.  If you only agree on what you read without examining it for yourself, so it is not an intelligent way to read what I offer. Or if you wish to disagree or discuss what you…Continue reading If you don’t know how to tie a bow yourself, it’s easy to say that to tie a bow is impossible

We question in order to explore, look and discover the truth for ourselves

Questioning is not an intellectual process that should encourage us to think more. It is also not about asking questions and finding answers with which we can agree or disagree. It is not about finding a pleasing answer, an answer that just suits us best in the current situation, allows us to feel at home in its false security, but…Continue reading We question in order to explore, look and discover the truth for ourselves

How our own conditionings are created, and is there an alternative way of living?

Now, let us look at the way we live daily. On the one hand, we allow ourselves to be victimized by the past, and on the other hand, we go on creating conditionings. We go on conditioning ourselves. We go on limiting, conditioning, polluting ourselves, creating a new Prarabdham, a new destiny for ourselves. How do we do that?  See…Continue reading How our own conditionings are created, and is there an alternative way of living?

We have so committed ourselves in different ways, that we have hardly any time for self-reflection, to observe, to study.

What is it that most of us are seeking? What is it that each one of us wants? Especially in this restless world, where everybody is trying to find some kind of peace, some kind of happiness, a refuge, surely it is important to find out, isn’t it?, what it is that we are trying to seek, what it is…Continue reading We have so committed ourselves in different ways, that we have hardly any time for self-reflection, to observe, to study.

If you too are tired, allow yourself to be, and rest in this aware presence that is your nature.

It started with observation since early childhood. Self-observation and observation of the world around me. And wondering, that so many apparently held onto so much nonsense. That so many preferred to walk around in masks rather than show themselves, that they rather followed their dramas than just to be here. That people didn’t know how to appreciate life. That loving…Continue reading If you too are tired, allow yourself to be, and rest in this aware presence that is your nature.

There is much more to discover

It is not thinking that prevents discovering the deeper dimensions of ourselves and life, and certainly not a creative or practical thought that actually occurs much more often, when we consciously turn to observation and contemplation of life. What opposes and prevents the unfolding of experiential self-knowledge, what stands in the way of discovering life as constant mystery and marvel,…Continue reading There is much more to discover
