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

Psychological Fear

Fear is one of the greatest obstacles to a fulfilled life. By fear I mean mainly the psychological fear that hinders each creativity, development, joy, observation, reflection, contemplation and discovery. Psychological fear and anxiety may have many apparent causes. It can be deeply rooted in the subconscious, it can come from earlier experiences or from fixed, ingrown beliefs. Psychological fear…Continue reading Psychological Fear

Being totally present both physically and mentally, without engaging in the psychological thought activity

In the past years and even decades I have been able to observe a growing interest in both meditation and spirituality in Europe. Terms like “Mindfulness”, “Being Present”, “Living in the Now”, “Conscious Living” became more and more popular slogans. Many schools for mindfulness, yoga and meditation techniques have been opened, and especially in my generation (I am 44 now)…Continue reading Being totally present both physically and mentally, without engaging in the psychological thought activity

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.

On social interactions, commenting, destructive and distractive need for feedback, pseudo-spiritual circles and helping others

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

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

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

Having profound insight into the infinite disguises of the idea and sense of a separate self

What matters profoundly is that a human being discovers directly, clearly, the enormous depth and weight of psychological conditioning that shapes and controls every move of the mind and body, keeping it divided and in conflict with itself, with other people, and with the natural environment. Not just to discover this conditioning, to become aware of it from moment to…Continue reading Having profound insight into the infinite disguises of the idea and sense of a separate self

The way of the fool has to be understood because only if you understand it you can go beyond it

The unintelligent person seeks security and safety with the crowd. He cannot be an individual. He is always hankering to become part of a crowd (…) An intelligent person will not go to the church in search of God, or to the temple. An intelligent person will go within. He will not go to Kaaba or to Kashi, because if…Continue reading The way of the fool has to be understood because only if you understand it you can go beyond it

Begin to reason about it and you at once fall into error

“All the Buddhas and all sentient beings are nothing but the One Mind, beside which nothing exists.  This Mind, which is without beginning is unborn and indestructible.  It is not green nor yellow, and has neither form nor appearance.  It does not belong in the categories of things which exist or do not exist, nor can it be thought of in terms…Continue reading Begin to reason about it and you at once fall into error
