Repetition

Looking at life and believing only in what you can see can make us feel trapped, lose faith in our dreams. Most of the time our minds can't show us the immediate path that can lead us to where we want to go. Understand how your thinking is keeping you limited in your life and avoid being trapped by your our own mind

No Guarantees

When you see yourself accomplished, happy, successful is what determines the way you feel right now. We all fall into the trap of thinking about our future happiness without knowing for sure when it will come. Live in our mind's non stop anticipations of the future feels like we're delaying our living to a later date. How can we arrive where we want to be today?

Don’t Think

As I’m about to write another post I find myself planning and thinking ahead what I’m about to say, structuring ideas into words, I come to a conclusion that most of the time I overthink the way I would like to talk about something, so today I would like to talk exactly about that. Thinking, is it really necessary? I was recently listening to Alan Watts talking about how one can experience the outside and the inside world as “One”…

Let there be MAGIC

It has been a while since I’ve written anything, so I thought about writing something. But nothing interesting or new has appeared that is worth writing about. Appeared. What a funny word. Guess I’m going to write about stuff that appears. Stuff like thoughts, emotions, circumstance. Our daily changing reality appears around and inside of us in different shapes and colors. The minute we open our eyes something appears. Thoughts…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Discovering Being With Self

On what should you focus on when trying to be with yourself? When looking for a relief, for peace of mind. We often get distracted by the seeking itself, the effort, the expectation for a certain experience of peace. Try to tune in between the spoken words in this video, to get a sense of what is it like to be with self, and try to mimic it sensually like a child mimics the world they experience. Yours truly, Boris.…

What you have is, Now.

Many times when we feel bad as a result of something happening, we feel bad not because of the circumstance that happened, but as a result of the comparison made in our minds to our previous state. How many times you’ve noticed yourself going from feeling good to feeling bad. It only takes a split second not even that to go from one state to another. Isn’t that remarkable that we have that ability to change our experience in a split of…

Regain your power

Give up on control. Give up on trying. Give up on trying to change the experience by controlling it. Because you can’t. You can only observe the happening of everything. Can you allow yourself to observe without interfering with whatever is happening right now? Can you allow your mind to rest now? We are all helpless to the now. It is our natural state. Think about it, we can control our physical bodies movement, but we can’t turn…

Fear of not enough

How good are you imagining to yourself? How good are you telling tales to yourself? How good are you persuading yourself? How good are you believing whatever you’re telling yourself? How good are you in making conclusions by yourself? How good are you in believing in your own conclusions? I bet you are the best. Because you are the only one choosing what is best for you. You have no competition. What is not enough? Not enough means that you…

Living faster than life

We’re always looking for something that isn’t here yet. Always in expectation. In restlessness waiting anticipating Constantly checking to validate that what I want is already here now. But it’s not. Because I’m not here. I’m in my mind’s constant anticipation. I keep checking. In five minutes. In ten minutes. In a minute. In an hour. Every morning. Every day. Checking for what is not here yet. That…
