My old colleague and friend whom I regarded as a person with a sharp intellect, and a mind that has been burdened by a lot of cultural conditioned knowledge, causing him a lot of satisfaction as well as dissatisfaction and suffering, started to listen more intensely to the song of a raven. All nature lovers have an increased chance to…Continue reading Life in simplicity and joy
If you want to know what it means to be happy, look at a flower, a bird, a child; they are perfect images of the kingdom. For they live from moment to moment in the eternal now with no past and no future. So they are spared the guilt and the anxiety that so torment human beings and they are…Continue reading Divine discontent
If you really wish to see clear, see yourself, see the world around you as it really is – not only through the filter of what you think – a kind of purification has to take place in you. I claim that you cannot really see clearly, live and love fully, if your view is blurred, and your view is…Continue reading Beliefs that blur clear seeing
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. You want to tell me that there are too many things in life that…Continue reading Make a difference in being here, singing your hymn to Life
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
First you have to see that your beliefs, convictions, knowledge about yourself and life, has not given you the fulfillment und happiness, your heart was yearning and longing for. Only a mature being, that has experienced a certain degree of disillusionment with the worldly things, can walk this path. If you still believe that the world and the things outside…Continue reading The only way to peace and serenity
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
Yesterday, for the first time, I briefly listened to the video the world is talking about at the moment. I mean the video number one of the last few days in which George Floyd was killed by the police. I turned it off after hearing “Please, I can’t breathe”. Indescribable pain filled my entire body. It felt like I was…Continue reading Have you really ever wondered who is to blame for all these atrocities?
“It becomes rather a question of love seeking expression and meeting with obstacles. The inclusive mind is love in action, battling against circumstances, initially frustrated, ultimately victorious. Mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj – I am That – The process of maturing does not necessarily progress with age. You can be old and immature, as…Continue reading Do not let this freedom be taken away by trying to improve others…
It started with observation since early childhood. Self-observation and observation of the world around me. And wondering, that so many apparently held onto so much nonsense. That so many preferred to walk around in masks rather than show themselves, that they rather followed their dramas than just to be here. That people didn’t know how to appreciate life. That loving…Continue reading If you too are tired, allow yourself to be, and rest in this aware presence that is your nature.
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.
I wrote a lot about awareness/consciousness in my very first, still somewhat rebellious, contributions, but I am not sure if I have exhausted all aspects, and obviously there is still much more to write about. Not that this ensures understanding, but it is always worth trying. You will notice that the very first contributions are still very much in the…Continue reading We can do no evil if we act in full awareness
There are people in this world who have tremendous brain capacity. They can imagine things, analyze them and keep and pass on an incredible amount of information. There are also people with an average brain capacity, that might be the vast majority, and those who have just been given a little less brain power. However, this does not seem to…Continue reading From lack of attention to lack of fulfillment
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
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?
