What you’ve got?

We surround ourselves with obligations, contracts, promises that we're afraid to break. What others would think, would I be able to survive or ask for help if I change? Questions of this sort scare us from even beginning thinking about change. Things like pride, status, disappointing others, scare us and we do not dare to explore why. Declaring instant defeat to fear. We'll do anything not to feel vulnerable. Otherwise, the image that we've created might crumble and nothing will remain of us.

Everything Works

If life is a stream of passing events how come we spend most of our lives looking to reach some event, isn’t that obvious that once we reach it, that event will be washed away by the stream simply because of the nature of the stream, leaving us again in uncertainty. A change in perception must be made in order to change our attitude towards the stream of life. If a stream is a series of events then it must be treated as such. But unfortunately,…

Expiration Date

What is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about death? Is it ignoring thinking about death? The one that fears death fears life. Death is what makes us value life.

You are change in which everything is happening. You always have been. Give up the…

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?

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,…

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…
