This famous saying from John Lennon reflects a paradox in our lives. Many of us would like to have a peaceful ride, enjoy the present moment, yet we can’t help but make future plans so we feel secure, or we spend time digging on past hurts. Lennon doesn’t say we shouldn’t make plans, but that the true experience of being alive is beyond those plans, and “happens” to us.
At first view, this seems to negate any personal will, since the right answer to life would be to embrace it instead…Continue
Have you noticed that many children’s tales end with a victory of the heart? The hero, after following a tortuous path of struggles, dreams and hopes, always manages to fulfill his heart’s desire, while sometimes discovering it at the same time. This seems to be the only achievement that matters, the Holy Grail. These stories stay in the collective consciousness for generations because everyone can recognize himself in the hero’s quest and identify with the struggles and the longing for a…Continue

History has a long list of protests. “Us against them” is a natural reaction but also a call for division, a polarized position that often brings some form of violence. As man tries to keep a system in control, dominate a person or impose an idea, he often uses violence. The sense of division is then exacerbated, the gap between both parties widens and chances for an equitable solution diminish. That’s the unending chain of violence, the tit for tat, the eye for eye that has been ruling the…Continue
In this age of technology and materialism, when many wonder what tomorrow will bring, the resurgence of spirituality is a normal phenomenon. For centuries, people have turned to religions or other belief systems for support and understanding. Yet it never resulted in a better world on a global level.
