Totem Animals

"A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the…

Connection can only be made from inside

As humans we look for connection with the ones around us, first the family, then friends and mostly looking for the other "half" of us in order to be completed.

But you can't be connected with anyone else, because we already are connected, we never ceased to be connected, we are all united in essence, we are one.

In order to realize that we are one with all things, with the whole, we just have to connect with ourselves and come to see how that connects us with anyone…

Fig Tree

Nature is the greatest teacher. My fig tree is a great reminder for me every summer.

In the summer, I enjoy eating fresh figs. Over the years, I have learned that if I move to another spot under the tree and look up I can find another handful of figs even after I thought I had picked them all. If I am rigid and stubborn, I can say there is no more fruit. I am correct if I do not change my perspective! If I just move an inch or two and change my view, I can see many more!

Being You, What is your Illusion?

We know all is illusion, that everything is all about frequencies and vibrations and we should learn, stretch and grow but how grown up are we really? How grown up should we strive to be? Are there grownups at all or do we just see ourselves that way? Our bodies may grown on the outside but how much growing has happened on the inside? How much is growth and how much is just entropy? Have we truly let go of our childhood fears, perceptions and reactions? Have we really become…

Are You Getting in the Way of Your Own Happiness?

Success…that’s we all want isn’t it?  Financial success, business success, success in our relationships, in raising our children?  So why is it so hard to achieve?  Sometimes we’re afraid of failure; sometimes we’re afraid of success. Sometimes we’re afraid we won’t be taken seriously; that others will laugh, sometimes we think we’re not good enough, we don’t deserve it…the list goes on and on. So what do we do?  We protect ourselves from this perceived unpleasantness. The problem is that…

Self Actualization: What Does That Mean?

This question has long been the subject of various psychological theories about individual development.  Abraham Maslow described it as an individual's desire for fulfillment—an internal yearning to maximize one’s full potential by becoming everything a person is capable of becoming.

In a nutshell, self-actualization is about living life to the fullest. It involves that quiet internal voice that keeps trying to persuade us to make the most of the gifts and talents with which we are…

Freedom & the (Illusionary) Pursuit of Happiness

“Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe.” – Winston Churchill

Don’t we all want to be happy? Don’t we all want to be free?

If we take a good hard look at our lives do we really feel those things…
