Enlightenment

The search for peace, freedom, abundance, happiness, bliss is merely a byproduct, a side effect of being enlightened. Enlightenment is knowing your mind outside of your mind and realizing that the truth is not in your thoughts or experiences. So many of us concentrate on seeking and finding what feels good and liberating, looking for a relief, joy. You need to understand that all these words are simply interpretations of feelings and experiences.…

Why I Am Here?

From time to time I find myself pondering about this question and I would like to share with you my latest insights on this subject. I used to believe that the reason for being is having a purpose and partially I still believe that this is true. However, like many of us, I used to think that there is one only one great purpose for my being, such as a particular career path, a lifestyle, a realization of one grand idea. This kind of thinking is what makes…

Sense Your Self

Do you know how your senses work? Do you know who or what operates them? Do you question their authenticity? – No, you don’t. We trust our senses. Our senses allow us to picture and experience a world that we live in. But how do we do that? How learning operates? How understanding operates? What is the sense of taste, smell, touch, sight, hearing? – Nobody knows. We simply use our given senses since they are always on. But there…

Are you happy?

Are you happy? What is happiness for you? Happiness has many interpretations. You might be happy with your job, relationships, finance, health, mood, etc. It could be one or the other. You can’t really measure happiness. Some will look at their current circumstance to asses their happiness and some will look at their past achievements to do the same. In both cases, an attempt is made to asses something and come to a conclusion about happiness.…

Perfect

Most of you will answer no to the question – Am I perfect? but why is that? You will immediately come up with a bunch of things about yourself that is currently not to your satisfaction when you think about being perfect. You will think about things that are needed to be fixed first before you can be perfect. Fixing. What is fixing? or more precisely – What can be fixed? Usually, when contemplating about fixing something, we think about…

Arriving

You are never staying in one place you are always arriving. The past has no effect on your arriving, the only time it has is when you give it permission to come with you wherever you arrive. No one can ever blame you, only you can blame yourself by convincing yourself that you’re the one to blame. For the same reason, you can never blame others. You can only judge your past. Even when you judge yourself, you judge your past words, past actions,…

I Don’t Know

Hello friends and good morning as I’m sitting here in front of the sunrise trying to center myself back into peace, trying to disconnect myself from the daily distortions a quick realization comes to mind, that Nothing Stops. Life doesn’t stop, your circumstance doesn’t stop. Reality doesn’t just stop and becomes something else in an instant. Perhaps in some cases, it does but generally speaking it doesn’t,…

Please Share

My goal with this blog is to reach and help as many people as possible. Sometimes we stumble on a video or an article online that shifts our attention or our perspective to something we hadn’t noticed before, this sometimes brings relief or a realization that makes it easier for us to go through the day or even with our lives. Writing this blog I hope that you stumble on such realizations or moments of relief. I hope that the things that I share…

Taking Flight

We cut our own wings before we learn how to fly. We limit our own reach. We set our own boundaries by defining limited destinations. We stop ourselves before we even begin. We think in terms and language that limits our minds and abilities. And then we take action according to the aforementioned limitations and boundaries. Your every thought, idea, every spark that lights your imagination is immediately introduced to a screening process of…

What is Real?

If I was an impeccable clear, transparent, precise, glass – Would I notice myself? If I was the empty space that contains all that appears –  the world, the people, my body, emotions, and thoughts, would I still notice myself? Would I be able to see who I am and know my real self? If I was to dream, would I know my real self in that dream? or would I need to wake up from that dream to know myself? If you believe in everything that you see, hear,…

What is Time?

What is a present moment? Where does it start and where does it end. Is a split of a second or a whole second? Is it even measurable? We love measuring things. Everything in our life has size, volume, length, height, width, speed, weight, depth. We measure all the physical stuff. Correct me if I’m wrong but time is the only non-physical thing that we measure. What is time? 🤔 – Time is an idea. 😎 We think that we exist in time…

Why we Regret?

The shortest answer to this question would be – We regret because we can’t forgive ourselves. We can’t forgive ourselves for behaving a certain way, making certain decisions, hurting someone, not taking action, not spending enough time doing something we love or being with someone we love. Simply put, regret is basically self-blame. Looking back at what was and concluding that we could have done something differently,…

We are Visitors

We have this feeling of relief, when we’re visiting our family or staying at someone’s house for a couple of days, or when we’re staying at a hotel or any place for that matter that is not our home. Once we arrive at a place like this, we feel relieved in a certain way from certain things. We are relieved because we know that our basic needs are taken care of, such as food and a place to sleep. Usually, we would need to make our own food,…

Starting over

If you ignore yourself right now and only see the things that are missing in your life, you will always find yourself restless, seeking, never settling down, never completely satisfied, never really enjoying what you have, never enjoying the moment. You have to see yourself first. Really see yourself as you are. Most of us refuse to see ourselves. Perhaps we’re ashamed of ourselves. Perhaps we see ourselves not as good enough, unworthy.…

The Return

Many of us want to find peace, to live in the moment. We try different methods to find peace, to relax, like meditation that teaches us to reject the thoughts, like mindfulness that teaches us to concentrate on the breath and observe – the mind, the body, the feelings, and the emotions. The thing is, that no matter what you do, and what you observe in yourself, it won’t bring you any peace right now, you can spend a lifetime observing…

I Blame Myself

You cannot force yourself to feel. Feelings are already present in you, some of us can feel their emotions more than others. If you think that you can’t feel emotions, it’s not true, you are simply unable to become aware to what you feel because you are heavily invested in other things that take away your attention from your emotions. It is important to understand that we have no control over how we feel. We don’t decide to feel…

Comfort vs Peace

Hello friend, I wish I had something to say to you to change your life to make you see who you are, to make you remember who you were, in an instant. But no matter what I say, eventually it will all come down to your willingness to be open with yourself about what puts you in discomfort, suffering, sadness and pushes you to look for a change. Most of you that seek change, happiness, peace, are easily distracted by the seeking. That is because you think…
