The differnece between the practice of “loving kindness” and true compassion

Compassion is the ultimate flowering of consciousness. It is passion released of all darkness, it is passion freed from all bondage, it is passion purified of all poison. Passion becomes compassion. Passion is the seed; compassion is the flowering of it. But compassion is not kindness, kindness is not compassion. Kindness is an ego-attitude, it strengthens your ego. When you…Continue reading The differnece between the practice of “loving kindness” and true compassion

Awakening is not for the person

Awakening is a certain shift of perception. A shift of focus. The focus changes from the ego-centered, the restricted, tense perspective with me and my life in the center, to an open, more holistic and relaxed perspective which encompasses everything and lingers on practically everything that is here and now. The thing is that awakening is not for the person,…Continue reading Awakening is not for the person

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

The “bad man” stays the “good man’s” job

As much as I am grateful to the popular, beloved spiritual teachers for their decisive, awakening words, as much as I admire the art of formulation some of them have, I do not see for myself the general and growing awakening of consciousness in humans of which Mooji, Leonard Jacobson and some others talk. I don’t believe in anything that…Continue reading The “bad man” stays the “good man’s” job

Whoever is not able to live in harmony with the ways of Life, will sooner or later suffer

Most people live almost exclusively in personal stories about themselves. But life is an intense, dynamic, all-encompassing all-connecting, and completely impersonal event unfolding from moment to moment. And life takes no account of those little personal stories and woes, only the human brain is able to produce – stories and woes in which so many still constantly squeeze themselves into.…Continue reading Whoever is not able to live in harmony with the ways of Life, will sooner or later suffer

A disgust so powerful that it will shatter the chains of dependence and deceit, that have been forged around your soul

TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, UNLESS YOU TURN AND BECOME LIKE CHILDREN, YOU WILL NEVER ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. – MATTHEW 18:3 The first quality that strikes one when one looks into the eyes of a child is its innocence: its lovely inability to lie or wear a mask or pretend to be anything other than what it is.…Continue reading A disgust so powerful that it will shatter the chains of dependence and deceit, that have been forged around your soul

But who was it that told us this story about ourselves, in which we believe so fanatically, so desperately?

I do not know if it has always been this way and when it happened that we started to live disconnected from our bodies, our senses, feelings, and from the stillness of our inner being, our quiet and powerful center. It must be somehow possible that not everyone is born with the same degree of disconnection, because I could observe…Continue reading But who was it that told us this story about ourselves, in which we believe so fanatically, so desperately?

To be born in a human form is a great responsibility, because you have to be simultaneously in two fields: the man-made field, and that which is not touched by man

There is peace only in freedom. One who lives in slavery knows no peace. Slavery stimulates restlessness, uneasiness, which is the essence of disharmony and disorder. The world we are living in today is full of suffering, misery, uneasiness; expressed in aggression, exploitation of one another, and violence. Individually and collectively, at home in the family, and there at the…Continue reading To be born in a human form is a great responsibility, because you have to be simultaneously in two fields: the man-made field, and that which is not touched by man

The awareness that is watching this moment is also the awareness that notices the self that you imagined yourself to be

When we become still. When we sit down and become very present our awareness starts to move underneath the known self, underneath the ego. Not that you are trying to get rid of it or do anything with it. You are just noticing that the known self, the self that you think about is just a collection of thoughts and…Continue reading The awareness that is watching this moment is also the awareness that notices the self that you imagined yourself to be

You will go through your life awake, because you have been willing to meet the other side

There are all kinds of deaths. There is the death of every moment. There is the death that occurs every night when you drop of into sleep, the death of a relationship ending, and the death when a child leaves home. But the death I would like you to turn your attention to now is physical death, the end of…Continue reading You will go through your life awake, because you have been willing to meet the other side
