“The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj People who label and divide the world and others into good and bad, right and wrong are unreachable for the calls of reconciliation, compassion and love. No matter how religious, spiritual or esoteric they otherwise are. No matter how often they practice the so called “loving kindness”. As…Continue reading Love is including and forgiving, not excluding, dividing and condemning
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
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
For me it is almost ridiculous to read and hear that we should stand and fight for racial equality, because for me race is only an insignificant word and does not define any beings around me at all! How could a definition be a being?! Anchored in reality, I do not see representatives of a nationality, religion, gender or race…Continue reading This is the only way out
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?
People read a lot and many are even proud of it. They read newspapers, books, specialist literature and hamster the knowledge found there as if it were their own. They add their opinions, their mental considerations, agree to it, reject it as it suits them. I used to read a lot too, and it was important and good in certain…Continue reading You are the source of all evil and all good in this world
“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…
TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, UNLESS YOU TURN AND BECOME LIKE CHILDREN, YOU WILL NEVER ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. – MATTHEW 18:3 The first quality that strikes one when one looks into the eyes of a child is its innocence: its lovely inability to lie or wear a mask or pretend to be anything other than what it is.…Continue reading A disgust so powerful that it will shatter the chains of dependence and deceit, that have been forged around your soul
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
It is not thinking that prevents discovering the deeper dimensions of ourselves and life, and certainly not a creative or practical thought that actually occurs much more often, when we consciously turn to observation and contemplation of life. What opposes and prevents the unfolding of experiential self-knowledge, what stands in the way of discovering life as constant mystery and marvel,…Continue reading There is much more to discover
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
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.
Life is where the spiritual rubber hits the road. Life will show us where we are not clear. Being in relationship with life and others shows us clearly where we can still get hung up. If we have true sincerity, we are not going to hide in the realization of the absolute. We are going to come out of hiding.…Continue reading We can have a very deep seeing of the true nature of things, while remaining, on the human level, very conflicted and deluded in certain areas of our lives
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?
