The Relaxed Soul on the End of Suffering

When we say, I went to the store, or we took Tom to the airport, these statements are of the body.

But there is an underlying truth that should be enquired into that goes beyond body.

That true "I" is shapeless, formless, and without body.

When sleeping deeply there is no body.

And the body will pass away, becoming a corpse in the end.

But underlying all that is the true "I" which is the state of freedom from conceit, ego, body... that… Continue

The Relaxed Soul on Does Psychology and Science Help One Find Liberation

Many people think that science has all the answers, but when it comes to finding freedom science and psychology help very little.

To be preoccupied with Theology, Science, or anything else distracts the seeker from finding truth.

Truth comes from witnessing self... thus connecting to one's feelings... thus leading to greater intuition.

Ego is born of massive amounts of words memorized and allowed to swirl through the mind.

A man with no learning at all will… Continue

The Relaxed Soul on "I am not my brothers keeper"

It's interesting that in Genesis God asks Cain "Where is Abel?"

And Cain responses "I am not my brothers keeper"

Yet in this day and age many people feel they are not their brothers keeper.

But if not... who is?

In the Hopi tradition... we are our brothers keeper.

In Hinduism... we are our brothers keeper.

In Christianity... we are our brothers keeper.

But how many of us are willing to stand up for someone we don't… Continue

Taking Risks Today and Now

"The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live." ~ Leo Buscaglia…

Are You Afraid to Shine

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness…

The Relaxed Soul on Inner Connection and Pain

Many people wake up angry, sad, in pain and never wonder why.

Take for instance a man who was in constant back pain. Thinking it was something organic he went to his doctors... who give him pain pills that got rid of the pain but made him feel terrible.

It was only when he got in touch with his feelings that he understood his tremendous anger towards his father... who divorced his mother and left them alone.

He even idolized his father... and wanted him in his… Continue

The Relaxed Soul on Losing Faith

It's normal to lose faith, and feel lost, and during times of turmoil there will be lots of that going on.

Remember to listen to the positive voice even when it's hard.

There will always be a battle of the negative voice trying to take over... but that does not mean that you are lost... just that you feel disconnected from your self.

Stay in your heart... listen with your heart... connect with your heart... and use your mind as a tool for your heart and… Continue

The Last Samurai

I have always been a fan of movies, I, myself, own a ton of them, so whenever I am looking to escape the world for a few hours and relax, I pop one in.

Yesterday I chose the Last Samurai, I realize that the way things that are depicted in movies are not so much the way they are in history but I am intrigued with the way they have the Samurai in this one.

Tom Cruise portrays a guilt ridden army captain, who feels so bad about a past choice that he…

Why Alone? (Om Times)

We may ask our self “the big question” from time to time: “Why are we here?”

It lends itself to a philosophical and spiritual study.

We may even find a few answers along the way:

“To learn and to grow.”

“To experience life.”

“Because there is a lot to see and do.”

“To learn we are a part of everything else.”

“Just lucky, I guess.”

Perhaps this most difficult…

5 Strategies to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

As a psychiatrist, I realize that comparing is a natural tendency we all have. It can be absolutely neutral, as when you merely evaluate similarities and differences. Such comparison is essential for astute reasoning. It’s also productive if you’re inspired to emulate another’s impressive traits. However, it becomes dysfunctional when it stirs envy and jealousy, if you judge yourself as better as or less than others. Think about it: without comparisons jealousy and envy couldn’t exist.…

Shifts & Changes

I look past the traffic

Look past the man-made structures

Of brick and mortar

I look past

Look up

Look behind

And I see LIFE…

I see the blanker of trees in the background

Several still green

But so many in the shift and change

Some half way there

Blotchy green and gold combined

Some pale yellow ochre

They've begun their shift

            But still have a bit of change left to come

Let Food Be Your Medicine

During the month of April of 2011, international Latin rock star Robi Draco Rosa announced that he had been diagnosed with cancer. Unlike most cancer patients in the U.S., he chose the non-traditional so-called Burzynski therapy and as of today, only a year after his diagnosis, three of his four cancerous tumors are gone.  The irony: the life-saving therapy that he chose has been the object of persistent litigation and persecution by…
