The Chicken and the Egg

We are used to seeing our life's turmoils as the chicken and the egg story. Looking for who did what to who. Looking for what came first? What caused what? As we go about with our lives we notice that our outer shell is cracking, and it seems like there is nothing we can do about it. This is the reality of our lives. Or is it?

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…

What is the truth?

The truth that we hold in our minds believed to be the truth merely from observation, from stories. Some stories scare us and because we don’t like how fear feels we decide to avoid this or that story just in case it could be true. Doing so we subconsciously program ourselves to act as though this or that story is real and true. Inevitably with time, those stories become true in our mind, simply because we respond to them as if they were true.…

True Being

Awareness is the chooser of reality, of focus. When you are living an experience that you don’t like, you are quickly choosing something else and when that something else doesn’t bring you the peace you want, you focus on that. We are quick to focus our attention on whatever is next. A relief, an expectation of relief, the failure of the coming relief, the going of the relief. Peace is not found in “something”. Peace…

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…

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…

Start seeing all the way

Many of us choose to see halfway. If you have something that you don’t like about yourself or your life and want to change it but think that you can’t, that is because you see things that bother you halfway. We are not interested in seeing all the truth, about what we’re unsatisfied with. When we want to change something about ourselves it is usually because we dislike how we feel about that something we want to change, and we…

Enjoying yourself? 🤔 I think so…

Sometimes we find ourselves where we think we want to be, doing what we think we want to do, around people that we think that we like, but something is off, we don’t really enjoy ourselves. If we choose to notice how we feel, the feeling is not that great. Somewhat heavy, tiring, somewhat sad or edgy. But we continue with our business being where we are and doing what we do. Meanwhile feeling not that great, but thinking that we are enjoying…

My fault

Every time I got hurt, fooled, lost money, made a decision that didn’t benefit me. Every time I was laughed at, verbally abused, I blamed myself. Why? Because I was the one feeling bad. I was feeling the emotions. I blamed myself for feeling the emotions, that made me feel bad. I wanted to know what is wrong with me. Is it the way I look, dress, talk, walk. What is wrong with me? How am I different from others? Am I not normal? Of course, there was no…

Who am I

My friend, you are vast. You’re beyond the darkness that you see. You’re beyond the monsters that you fear. You are beyond your deepest fears. You are beyond your hardest struggles. You’re beyond the pain. You’re limitless. When you find your limit you discover that you’re beyond even that. You have proven over and over again that there is no limit to what you can endure. But you don’t see your limitlessness…

Why I’m unhappy.

We are so used to living life by knowing what is good and what is bad. What should we trust and what should we fear. Often our lives are driven by negativity. We take action as a result of avoiding something, fearing something, running from something and ignoring everything that is negative in our minds interpretation, into what seems to be positive. We seek pride to avoid shame. Strive to win to avoid losing. Look for safety because we fear danger.…

Advice, take it or leave it?

Only you can live your life. Only you can walk the path. Only you will experience whatever you choose to become. Only you can be in control of what you choose. But, sometimes it seems that we can’t choose, it’s hard to choose. And we ask for advice from those that chose many times before us. Sure, you can take advice. But advice is nothing but other people’s unique perspectives from their experience. You might feel obligated…

I don’t know what to do anymore

I’m 37, That’s 20 years of doing for me. Give or take. Doing assignments, kindergarten, school, high school, work, university, work, career. Always in doing. Since I can remember. Tasks. At home, At school, At work. There was always something that needed to be done. So, I did do something. But did I want to? We want to believe that our doing comes from wanting, but it is not your obvious wanting. It is a fake kind of wanting. The wanting…

What to do when you’re in pain

Any appearance or reappearance of emotion or pain is not against you. It’s not a curse. It’s not after you to make you miserable. Appearing emotion is here to be experienced, like anything else. Emotion is just a feeling in the body, we decide that it’s unbearable, and start suffering from it in our minds. Giving it meaning. When you bump your leg into something. You know that this pain is going to pass in a few minutes or seconds,…
