In search of love (2 of 2)

If there are two individuals who are searching for love and have not found it within themselves, then a relationship between them can never work; they will only be fighting or demanding love. The demand for love is the proof that love is dead. Love cannot be brought about that way. Your partner cannot prove his…

You cannot be a thought

Let us, without any doubt, come to an understanding that we are not our minds. The moment we separate ourselves from our minds, we give ourselves an opportunity to learn about and understand our minds. It is impossible to be objective and learn about our minds if we simply assume that we are our thoughts….

In search of love (1 of 2)

A human journey is nothing but an expedition in search of love. Everything we do is a way to move towards love. Therefore, it is important to understand what exactly love is, because it is so easy to confuse love with all of the other emotions. Love is subtle, internal, seems like a feeling, like…

Source of Suffering

The root cause of suffering is ignorance. Ignorance being the lack of a clear understanding of what you are doing, where you are going, and who you are. This ignorance is the single biggest reason for suffering. On the other hand, knowledge is the light that illuminates everything. The wider and deeper your knowledge and…

Thoughts Are Like Clouds

You need to trick the mind. And meditation is really about…

What is Mysticism?

One of the most beautiful qualities of human existence is the sense of mystery. The sense that there is something out there that is worth striving towards.

Transcending the Body

Seeking Divinity is an Individual’s Journey

What is an individual?  Or who is an individual? What exactly does it mean to be an individual?  An individual is an ocean. A vast, unimaginable ocean of life. An individual is an aliveness. An individual is not what you see. An individual is simply what he is, or what you are. There is a…

How to Detach

Let’s try and understand what attachment is. Attachment starts with a desire of the mind. The root of all attachments is a desire. When the object of that desire begins to manifest — it could be in the form of a relationship or it could be in the form of a fulfilled desire — the…

Meditating on the Breath

The breath is perfect to just be in the moment. If you can observe your breath you are one hundred percent in meditation. And when you observe your breath your meditation is just the way it is supposed to be. You cannot intensify it any further. The reason why you need intensifying methods is because…
