Perception

We take sides, looking at ourselves, others and life through our points of view. But do we need points of view to live our lives? Life is there regardless of our perspectives or points of view. Our points of view are merely the windows through which we choose to see life at a certain angle. But why limit yourself to a certain angle when you can see the whole picture.

Opening up

What it takes to open your mind? to open up emotionally? What it takes to become open to trusting? What it takes to open up when you don't feel like it and as a result, you don't want to. It feels uncomfortable. Why would I want to put myself in an uncomfortable situation?

Reflections

Everybody thinks to themselves - I know the person that I am, I know myself better than anyone else, you can't tell me something about myself that I don't already know. Well, I'm here to tell you that the majority of people don't know themselves completely. In fact, they spend most of their lives refusing to get to know themselves, and here is why.

Take Time Out

We all do it, we all take a timeout when we take a break or a vocation from what we’re usually doing to rest, to re-evaluate things perhaps. Even in sports, there is a timeout from the game that is being played, to regroup, to strategize the next move, or simply to rest. But I’m not talking about that kind of timeout, I’m talking about taking a permanent timeout, by taking time, out of the equation of your life. You see, the idea…

Effort

There is no effort in experiencing an experience. The effort comes from reacting to the experience. Experience being the circumstance, emotions, thoughts, feelings. Experience is a part of being which is effortless. There is no effort in being, in existing. There is no effort in being, thinking a thought, feeling a feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling. Effort – is merely our reaction wanting to change what appears, and that is experienced…

Everything Heals

Everything heals when we stop. If we stop polluting, the Earth will heal, the oceans will heal, forests will heal. When we stop hurting one another our souls will heal. When we will stop hurting ourselves mentally our minds and bodies will heal. Everything in the universe, when left to its own device, is constantly trying to find balance and heal. The Earths atmosphere, nature, our bodies and of course our minds are trying to find balance. The…

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…

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.…

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…

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…

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 ourĀ 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…

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…

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.…

How to get over your mistakes and the fear of trying

Fear of trying comes from being afraid to make a mistake, to fail. When you make a mistake how does it feel? Our fear of making a mistake is directly connected to our worth, and how others see us. Therefore we would do anything to avoid making a mistake, to avoid feeling not good enough, unworthy. Because we believe that our actions determine our worth. We believe that others will judge the results of our actions and will determine our worth. As a…

Why are we bothered?

Is something bothering you? What is bothering you? Are things not to your liking? Are you disappointed by something? If you are bothered by something that means you feel threatened by it. I know that’s a bold statement, and you might be bothered by it, but try to stay with me as I break it down. We are bothered because we cling our happiness on something that is outside of us, you might have expectations of something or someone to make you feel…

What stops me, is here to set me free.

What stops you? What thought? What fear? What person? What emotion? As we go with our daily lives, we encounter emotional abruptions that stop our flow. Suddenly we feel off, what most of us do when that happens is usually get absorbed in whatever is making us feel bad or wait it out until it goes away. I personally seizeĀ this opportunity to be in a state of awareness to the cause of the feelings and the feelings that I have. I recognize my patterns…

Break All Your Patterns

What it takes to change? What it takes to change your life? What it takes to change your attitude, your thoughts? What it takes to make that first step towards what you want? Why is it so difficult sometimes to start heading in the direction you want? Repetition is comfortable. Repetition is familiar and easy, it is even somewhat automated. But if you notice the repetition of whatever you dislike doing, saying, or thinking you can see that it is…
