Freedom – Part 1a

Possessions Everything out there in the physical world is neutral. It is what it is. A car is a car. A dress is a dress. Any value judgement is a projection of opinion. “This is a nice dress.” Nice is a value judgement which I have projected onto the dress. The “nice” value is not an inherent part of the dress. The dress is simply a dress. Different people might not even [...]

Models Of Perfection Vs Authentic Living

Spiritual awareness enables us to stand back from any situation and not get caught up in temporary ideas of models of perfection, ie, an image of what the ego would like us to be. Examples might include a model in our mind of how a perfect student, or a perfect nurse, or a perfect mother should be. The ego then tries to make us live up to that image, but living up to an image is not [...]

How to overcome adversity?

It is true that in life challenges and adversity are a certainty, but do they have to overwhelm and overpower us? Some respond to adversity incredibly well, dealing with them skillfully, optimistically, enthusiastically and appropriately. Whilst others often feel disheartened, perhaps defeated, disempowered – with feelings of “why me?”, as though life holds a personal grudge against them. Life does not discriminate when it comes to giving adversity; it does so very generously in fact. To subscribe to the idea [...]

True friendship

They say that true friends are hard to find, we all want true and good friends in our lives but are we that to our own self? The most important relationship in our life is the one that we have with our self. We tend to be kind, caring and thoughtful towards those around us, but rarely extend these compassionate qualities to our self. If a friend comes to us with something they are going through in life, we [...]

Helping children in finding their purpose

It has been said that children come through you but not from you – you may give them your love but not your thoughts (The Prophet, Khalil Gibran). From this we can denote the importance of lovingly overseeing the growth of a child, but not forcefully dominating or governing their lives. The former allows life to take its natural course, where learning takes place through play and exploration in safe environments – whereas the latter seeks to [...]

I am a point of incorporeal conscient [...]

Overcoming Temptation

A bar of Belgian chocolate that my aunt just gave me, even though my doctor prohibited chocolate only last week. An alarm clock trying to wake me up at 5 a.m. after I got to bed at two. Dilemmas and temptations surround our lives. Should I give, take, do or avoid the thing that is dangling in front of me. Let’s take the example of getting up early [...]

Cultivating values in everyday life

Question: How to cultivate values in everyday life? Answer: Each morning, making time for silence to connect with the inner being gives the experience of the original qualities of the self – which are peace, love, truth, purity and happiness.  As I connect with these innate qualities, and emerge them in my awareness, I remember that this is my own original, true state of being. Through the day I am then able to bring them back to my awareness and implement and [...]

Overcoming Negative Influences

Question: How can we stop the negative influence of people who are close to us and enable them to change their thinking pattern? Answer: This is a curious question. I don’t know if you have ever made the attempt to change anyone.  I don’t believe I have met anyone who has been successful in that effort.  In fact, it is possible to expend a great deal of time and energy in such pursuits, without getting any success. If you feel someone is having a [...]
