Me against myself

Why we are making ourselves do what we don’t feel like doing, most people do what they don’t want to do. Why we are ignoring our desires, feelings, suppressing our emotions with distractions and addictions? Competition. We compete with ourselves. At each given moment whether you’re aware of this or not, each of us has an Ideal, a goal, a short-term, or long-term goal with which we compete on a daily basis. We compete with…

Nothing to fear

When you close your heart to the world and its people, you close your heart to yourself. As a result, when you find yourself needing support from yourself, you might not find it anymore. You have nothing to lose by opening yourself, your heart, and who you are to the world because when you are open, kind, sincere and honest, even in the most difficult of times, nothing can harm you, because you can always rely on your kindness, openness, sincerity,…

I am only one

I am only one and there are so many of you. So many thoughts, beliefs, rules that I need to remember, social conducts that I have to obey, problems that I need to solve. But there is only one of me. Will I ever get to address all the things that I need to address. Will I have enough time to listen to all the thoughts, worries, problems? Will I have enough time to fix everything I need to fix. After all, there is only one of me and so many of everything else…

What you need?

What is a need? What do you think that you need? Does focusing on what you need distracts you from being at peace? Most of the time when I find myself needing something, the need is accompanied by feelings of impatience to get what I need, restlessness and sometimes worry for not having what I need, yet. The body and the mind go into this unsettling state of “You are not where you want to be. You cannot rest until you get there” We put so…

Who are you

Who’s moving your Body? Who’s taking it from a place to place? -The legs. Who is directing the legs where to go? Who’s smelling the flower? -The nose. Who’s pointing the nose to the flower and inhaling through the nose? Who is looking at the flower? -The eyes. Who’s focusing the eyes on the flower and looking at every color on it? Who is hearing the wind? -The ears. Who’s focusing to listen to the wind when…

This is my life

This is my life, I’m just a regular person. I make mistakes, I fear, I laugh, I worry. My life may seem interesting to some and boring to others, It may seem rich to some and poor to others. Happy to some and sad to others. Realize that you can say this about anyone out there. This is true about anyone. But if we begin to identify ourselves with one group or the other, if we begin to suffer from wanting to belong to one group or another, if we begin…

Stopping From Stopping

We find ourselves wanting to stop. Because we want to enjoy life and live in the moment. We want to stop our thoughts that make us suffer, take us from this moment, we want to stop our harmful habits. We focus on stopping. How to stop. What needs to be done in order to stop. But most of the time we doubt our ability to stop. We think that stopping is a process, and we treat it as such. We try to learn how to stop. Take advice from others. Set time limits. And…

The next chapter of your life

How are you doing? We assume that we and others are always “doing” something, aren’t we? But what are we doing? It might seem sometimes that we are not doing anything, but believe me that we are. We are always noticing something, concluding and memorizing our experiences and our moods. The way we feel. The way the circumstance we’re in feels to us. We are constantly describing some experience to ourselves putting…

Forgiveness

Holding a grudge, when we feel insulted, mistreated, wronged in one way or another should only remind us that we put other people’s opinions, words, actions before our own. We perceive the world through others. Through their validation of ourselves. We are focused on the circumstances and events and conclude that they are the source from which we get hurt. We blame that source and not letting go of that blame unless something “happens”…

My Source Of Approval

What approves of me? What allows me to be and to do what I want? We often get stuck by our own created rules of disapproval of ourselves. What we can and can’t do, what is allowed and not allowed. We never stop to ponder about the mental obstacles that we call rules, obligations, social norms and agreements. What and who approves of our choices and desires? Yours truly, Boris.…
