Partner Relationships and Emotions

 

One day there will be girls and women whose name will no longer mean the mere opposite of the male, but something in itself, something that makes one think not of any complement and limit but only of life and reality: the female human being. This progress (at first very much against the will of the outdistanced men) will transform the love experience, which is now filled with error, will change it from…

Conscious living in religious matters. An example: circumcision.

  

In the coming months I would like to publish some blogs about religious living in religious matters. I think it is important to put the official religions in some perspective, so that fanatism will leave and people can see that some traditions are not holy at all, for example the question of circumcision, a hot topic in Europe at the moment. Medical doctors are more and more objecting to perform the operation and are warning for all kinds of complications of bleeding, infection,…

Jealousy, Longing, and Fulfilment

 

Jealousy is one of the most prevalent areas of psychological ignorance about yourself, about others and more particularly, about relationships.

~Osho

 

The only Bible story I remember from my childhood days is the one from the Old Testament about Joseph and his jealous brothers. Father Jacob had many sons, but Joseph was one of the youngest, and he loved him most…

Sexuality and Emotions

Sexuality and Emotions

 

Remember: you only have one energy. At the lowest point it is called sexual energy. You refine and transform it. Energy starts to rise. It becomes love, it becomes prayer.

~Osho

 

Sexuality is often undervalued or overvalued. Where is the center? The heart is to be found in the center. Without the heart as center, sex becomes empty and hollow, a compulsive…

From wishing death to loving life

From Wishing Death to Loving Life

 

As long as a person gets in his own way, it will seem that everything gets in his way.

~Emerson

 

Suicide and the attempt to commit suicide are themes that should not be omitted in these times. It is a subject that needs some clarification. First and foremost, I would like to state that I do not have an opinion about the fact whether suicide…

Jesus as the Sun, astrology is the fundament of Christianity!

 The solar myth is known to Christians as the life of Christ, who is just another of the thousand names of the Sun god. Charles Dupuis (1742-1809) In the beginning of our era we see with the downfall of the matriarchate and the cults of the goddesses and the start of the patriarchal dominance, a shift from Moon centeredness to Sun centeredness, from a translation of the unknown reality as a goddess to that of a god, and especially of a son. This means that especially the young Sun, the Sun…

Ego and Essence

Ego and Essence

 

Soul, spirit, and ego are only words. True entities of that kind do not exist. Consciousness is the only Truth.

~Ramana Maharshi

 

There is no ego. There is no self. There is only consciousness. We should have listened to Ramana! Then we would not have introduced such a disastrous separation between “I” and soul and between psychology and spirituality. From the…

Liberation from “God” to Find God  by Riet Okken

You cannot feel Me because you have never given Me your true feelings.

~God, as channelled by Ceanne deRohan

 

What is the relationship between God and emotions and how stand the denial of our emotions, also those towards God, in the way of the connection to God and the realization of ourselves? To begin with, a personal story as written in my diary:

I…

Forgiveness and Emotional Digestion

Forgiveness and Emotional Digestion

Forgiveness is a much-discussed theme. Forgiveness is central in A Course in Miracles and in Christian religion. We speak of forgiveness as long as we believe that guilt exists. But if we assume that there is no guilt, only ignorance and neurosis, is there anything left to forgive? Talking about forgiveness implies that there is guilt.

A personal story.

I found a lot of guilt in myself on my own path of…
