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
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
If it is about us, nobody is closer to us than we are right now. We ourselves are the greatest object of direct investigation. If it is about observation of human nature in action, observation of how human mind works, how thoughts come and go, how thoughts build association network, and are linked to feelings, emotions, further thoughts etc., nobody…Continue reading On this field called you, you are the only authority and the only expert
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?
To understand anything – not only what I am saying, but to understand anything – what is required? To understand yourself, to understand your husband, your wife, to understand a picture, to understand the scenery, the trees, what is required? Right attention, isn’t it? Because, to understand something, you must give your whole being to it, your undivided, full, deep…Continue reading The Art of Listening
It is actually quite simple. You have already arrived here and now while reading these words. You are already in the state of freedom, in the fulfilled, joyful state of being without adding anything to it. You are life. You are here exactly where you should be and that is your reality here and now. The question is whether you…Continue reading You are here exactly where you should be, and that is your reality here and now.
Coming in touch with deeper dimensions of life brings a shift in perception with. That shift mostly allows us to live with more ease, more openness, less self-centered, more relaxed, serene and fulfilled. From my own experience, I can say that silent observation and contemplation of myself and life has brought many positive changes, and that this can actually be…Continue reading It is possible to live life in abundance, freedom and peace that is accessible to everyone who is ready for it
Why write, read about and contemplate life, living and being? Maybe because it brings more beauty, freshness, innocence clarity to our lives? Perhaps because it opens up new perspectives for us, and shows that, where we thought we already know what things are, we don’t really know? And now suddenly start to rediscover life anew? Is it really so much…Continue reading I plunged into this exciting adventure called life
Most of us are brought up and accustomed to absorb and process the knowledge we are presented to, only intellectually and mentally, without bothering about experiential verification. At an early age we were conditioned to accept certain things as truths, and the rest we simply have learned through imitation and through the building up of association network. Especially if the…Continue reading The sunny basement and the power of unexamined beliefs
One can imagine a lot under “observation and contemplation of life”. So I want to make it a little clearer what I mean by that. When I observe and describe life, I can do it from many perspectives. I can observe and talk about my own life, that is, my life story, and that of everyone around me. I can…Continue reading Do you really know that, which is closest to you?
One might ask, what kind of homepage is it, where the author is not interested in discussions, not even in excessive spreading and advertising the site, has not a separate Facebook-fan-site, but only quietly and silently writes for herself, without really wanting to know, whether and who is reading this, and what they may think about it. I also reflected…Continue reading On social interactions, commenting, destructive and distractive need for feedback, pseudo-spiritual circles and helping others
Self-centeredness seems to me to be one of the most important issues in this beautiful world. But what is this self-centeredness at all? And is it really necessary? It seems that self-centeredness starts with the main focus on the particular body, that one feels to be. This follows the focus on the particular mindset, meaning – particular thought-set that seems…Continue reading Is it only through this identification with the body and mind that we can look at everything else that is here?
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
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
This one question – “What do I know for certain?” – is tremendously powerful. When you look deeply into this question, it actually destroys your world. It destroys your whole sense of self, and it’s meant to. You come to see that everything you think and know about yourself, everything you think you know about the world, is based on…Continue reading What do I know for certain?
