There are days when you just cannot find the Light in your life and everything looks so dark and sinister.
With all the bad news inundating the Internet and the public media, those tragic stories from family and friends who are always so eager to share them with us, even before asking how we are doing. The strangers in the street who love to tell you their lives and recent tragedies to see if they can find a friendly ear, that allows them to discharge their bad energy accumulated in their soul for so long. All that added to your own personal emotional baggage!
There are days, when you have to decide creating your own Light in the middle of a lot of induced darkness. Continue reading →
We have talked many times about the importance of cycles in life. We are now used to do the things in faster ways than before. In the old times making a cake could take hours, then the instant cakes boxes arrived and it would take us almost an hour to have it on the table, nowadays we rather go and buy one at the bakery so we don´t have to waste time making it.
This doesn’t apply only to fast-food, we are in the search for “fast-anything”, we seem to be too busy trying to accomplish a hundred thing in our agenda every day and we end up doing two or three things actually.
We are even trying to find faster things methods to reach Nirvana. Now we don’t want to go through the whole process of reaching enlightenment, we want to be a Buddha, and we want it NOW. Continue reading →
A had a friend who, since he was a little child, his parents taught him he needed to go to church to be able to speak to God.
He always attended his church services 3 times a week. He had the firm belief that the only place to talk to God was his church.

He just answered that he knew that but, that his parents had planted that seed in his heart and that now he was not able to let it go that easily. Continue reading →
I was beginning to feel worried, two of my friends were talking about different experiences with rejection and how awful they felt afterwards. They were totally devastated.

And he was talking so convincingly, he looked so confident that the people around him believed every word he said. His gestures, his tone, his arguments were so strong and powerful nobody doubted his word.
If he said something it had to be the absolute truth, after all he had travelled the world, and studied for so many years. Continue reading →
At some point I realised I was in a permanent deep sleep state in my life, I felt I was existing but not really living. Things happened in my life but in some way I was not really experiencing them in awake mode.
I went through my daily life in a dormant mode and sometimes I did something and a few minutes later I was not sure I had done it or not. I had “lost” that period of time in the nothingness. I was feeling like a walking zombie most of the time.
I got scared and began to look for a way to “return” to the present time so my mind wouldn’t wander away and lose the actual experience. Continue reading →
