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

Thus the Master is available to all peopleand doesn’t reject anyone.He is ready to use all situationsand doesn’t waste anything.This is called embodying the light.…Continue reading ZEN and the great difference between conscience and consciousness
One-pointedness, concentration and meditation are not related to each other at all. This is one of the confusions prevalent all over the world. One-pointedness is another name for concentration, but meditation is just the opposite of concentration. But in most of the books, in most of the dictionaries, and by the so-called teachers, they are used as if they are…Continue reading Concentration and meditation
I spoke to my husband yesterday and then, in the morning hours I reflected a little bit about my last article, reference to which I will post at the end of this one. My article from yesterday was about gratitude and love for no reason whatsoever, which are our true nature, if not obscured by conditioned thinking, worries, psychological story-spinning,…Continue reading Resolving the myth of bliss
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
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
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
Question: It seems to me that the movement of life is experienced in relationship with people and ideas. To detach oneself from such stimulation is to live in a depressing vacuum. I need distractions to feel alive. Krishnamurti: In this question is involved the whole problem of detachment and relationship. Now, why do we want to be detached? What is…Continue reading Is relationship merely a stimulation?
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
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
“You and I are not isolated pieces — we’re the happening of all that interconnectedness. That opens up an immense number of possibilities and ups the scale of responsibility immensely.” We have a certain idea of causality: “This happened because of that.” Or “I am the way I am because I was born in this particular family, in this particular…Continue reading The whole idea is to be unlimited. It means you can experience yourself as pure consciousness, and you can experience yourself to be an ordinary little sentient being
At the beginning of next week, the names of the teachers will be called out on my work, who will have to face layoffs at the end of the month. If this is my name, it means quite a change in our income as well as a job search. My mother and my both brothers are once again involved in…Continue reading If you really want to touch deeper dimensions of yourself, then at some point you have to meet the human within you. Without running away, without suppressing, without projecting, without scapegoats.
Question: How do I square personal ambition – family, money, job – with spiritual work? John Butler: “The question makes me smile a bit, because the questioner uses the words “How do “I” do this, which always indicates that spiritual work hasn’t really started yet. It’s still more theoretical than real. I know the world is full of books about,…Continue reading Well my darling, just take off the limits
Part of what meditation is, as we are sitting there, just being, literally just being. And when your mind is moving, you see how arbitrary the inner dialog is, how conditioned it is, that it is actually old, old, old. It’s almost automatic. And when you see it, then you see that it has run your life, it has defined…Continue reading You have an option, where do you put attention

Therefore the Masterfulfills her own obligationsand corrects her own mistakes.She does what she needs to doand demands nothing of others. ————————————————-When he makes a mistake, he realizes it.Having realized it, he admits it.Having admitted it, he corrects it.He considers those who point out his faultsas his…Continue reading No angels, but aware of their own faulty humanity.
