From Goals to Vision

Posted on December 13, 2010

In just a few weeks from now millions of people around the world will write down their goals for 2011. Alas, by the end of January many of those goals will be forgotten or put on indefinite hold. Which raises the question of why we bother in the first place? Why not just flow from [...]

You Are Not The Way You Are

Posted on November 29, 2010

Do you sometimes dismiss a well-meaning suggestion and justify your behavior with words like, “that’s just the way I am!” If so, I’ve got news for you. You are not the way you think you are. This is because a response like the one above is just a behavior pattern you have adopted, for whatever [...]

Soul Watching

Posted on November 11, 2010

See through the personality and into people’s souls – Jason Nelson Have you every felt someone was able to see you for who you truly are? As if they could see right through the many layers of conditioning and the self-image you’ve carefully created and are projecting to the outside world? How did that feel? [...]

How To Open Up

Posted on October 14, 2010

When life gets chaotic, and what once worked stops having meaning, we tend to shut down and retreat into the safety of what we know. Some literally lock themselves up in their homes, or dive headfirst into feel-good activities. Others hang on to daily routines and the apparent security of a status quo that renders [...]

The Illusion of Self Protection

Posted on September 24, 2010

Some years ago I hit a low point in my life and all I wanted was to run away from everything. I was lost, unable to face the demands of my job and unable to face the truth about myself. I remember feeling exposed and vulnerable. I eventually resigned from work and retreated into the [...]

Stuck Between Realities

Posted on August 11, 2010

Imagine leaving a dead-end situation and taking that much-needed break. Still unsure about what the next step will be, you simply enjoy doing nothing. But then what was supposed to be only a couple of weeks of rest and contemplation stretches into months, even years. There’s plenty to do because somehow you’ve managed to fill [...]

Opening Up To Change

Posted on July 8, 2010

We’re always looking for change while at the same time fearing and resenting that it might come to pass. We dream of a different life, yet the thought of leaving our familiar nest fills us with terror. We think about the things we want, but immediately dismiss such thoughts as unrealistic and impossible to have. [...]

From Forgiveness to Acceptance

Posted on June 28, 2010

When we forgive someone for something, we let go of toxic energies that keep us stuck in hurt, resentment and blame. Provided the intention is genuine and not just an “I’m the better person” ego booster, we’re able to move on and create space for the relationship to take on a new, more positive dynamic. [...]

Self Connection

Posted on June 16, 2010

A daily and deep connection with the inner self is essential to our (well)being. Ironically, we often only begin to understand this self-connection after it’s been broken, abandoned or ignored and we find our zest for life has weakened, or we become depressed about everything in general and nothing in particular. We might enter long [...]

Do You Recognize Yourself?

Posted on April 29, 2010

If your answer is negative, you’ve probably adopted qualities that are basically alien to you. To a certain extent we all do that. We adapt to our environment based on what we believe is expected from us or on what we think we want. When our focus is on external images of success we set [...]

Surrender is a spiritual skill that tops all others in its ability to set your life on its right course. (Cheryl Richards on twitter) We often have a negative association with the idea of surrendering. It feels like losing control, giving in or giving up, evoking images of defeat, abandonment, or yielding our power to [...]

Your Starting Point’s Wherever You Are

Posted on March 17, 2010

When desire for change arises the question of “where to start?” is usually not far behind. Here we often procrastinate in the belief that those first steps need to be perfectly aligned with goals, plans and end results. Of course, a good start is important, but the initial details often don’t matter as much as [...]

Different Worlds

Posted on March 11, 2010

Imagine a world where everybody is expressing themselves wholly without shame and hesitation. Here blooms awareness of our inner being and talents. Life’s eternal sacredness is expressed through every action and behavior. So good is it that we sense utopia and are filled with the happiness that only comes from freely helping one another. But [...]

Staying Calm

Posted on March 1, 2010

Hearing the renowned mystical scholar Andrew Harvey speak about the importance of doing calming practices in the current Sacred Awakening series, I was reminded of how I had lost my temper the other day. It was late and raining. I was on my bike, cold and eager to get home. A group of people was [...]

Demystifying Purpose

Posted on February 23, 2010

For a long time I thought that I needed to find my purpose. I even believed that one day it would magically come to me. I imagined my spiritual awakening coming in a flash, to be followed by absolute clarity and an instant shift of my whole being. From then on my purpose would be [...]


Posted on February 15, 2010

When you’re unsure what to do, you can delay making a choice and just explore your options a little deeper. Or you can accept that any decision has a degree of uncertainty, make your choice and adjust as you go. You can also zoom in on your doubts and look to see if they’re justified. [...]

The Trouble With Goals

Posted on February 7, 2010

Many of us are pretty good in setting goals but falter when following through. We begin with the best of intentions but along the way somehow focus is lost and we eventually give up. Here are some of the common reasons we get stuck and confused with implementing goals. We forget. Daily life and default [...]
