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

Make a difference in being here, singing your hymn to Life

Sing a hymn to life. Sing “Thank you life. Thank you for your beauty, diversity, multiplicity, intelligence, richness, as well as for all your challenges and possibilities”. Sing and see while you sing whether you can begin to feel more of what you praise over time.

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.

You are here exactly where you should be, and that is your reality here and now.

It is actually quite simple. You have already arrived here and now while reading these words.

The question is whether you…Continue reading You are here exactly where you should be, and that is your reality here and now.

I plunged into this exciting adventure called life

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

Is it only through this identification with the body and mind that we can look at everything else that is here?

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?

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

A state of consciousness of our humanity, where everyone assumes to know and hardly anyone really looks

Today, on my walk, I once again listened to this wonderful and wise lady and at the same time observed myself. A thought came to me that the fact, that hardly anyone listens to Toni, not even in the pseudo-spiritual circles, is actually an excellent proof for the state of consciousness of our humanity, where everyone assumes to know and…Continue reading A state of consciousness of our humanity, where everyone assumes to know and hardly anyone really looks

Spirituality works with the tools of a true scientist

Spirituality is not concerned with treating symptoms such as depression, anger, grief, illnesses, addiction, selfishness or trying to alleviate them, for example with breathing exercises and other esoteric practices.  Spirituality goes far beyond that and asks for the origin, both the origin of the symptoms and the origin of everything that is here. Spirituality is also not really interested in…Continue reading Spirituality works with the tools of a true scientist
