where am I running to?

I am sitting behind a window, looking outside. I watch people walking, I look at them and I wonder. Do they know they are walking? Do they know that their brain is sending non-stop messages to their body to go forward, or to look right and left, to bring one leg in front of the other? Do they know they are thinking? As beautiful as everything around us is, do we have the patience to see them? Do we have the patience to enjoy them? To dedicate 5 minutes in this simple non-doing? My experience has shown me that...

Beyond Judgment Day

People often think about Judgment Day.  They strive to be good in order to be accepted into heaven, thinking that when the time comes they will make everything right and they will see the light. What fails to be understood is that Judgment Day is here now. Judgment does not come from “God”. It comes from you. You are judging yourself every minute, every second, and every moment. You never stop judging yourself or others. You simply cannot! Whichever path you have chosen for your life – a career in business, a life devoted to spirituality, a path dedicated to your children and your spouse; whatever it is you chose to do, you still judge. It is in your blood. It is in your subconscious. This is how you distinguish one from the other. This is how you have been taught to separate good from evil, and right from wrong; by knowing what is nice and what is unpleasant, judging according to your perception what is acceptable and what is not. Judgment is not necessarily bad, however, it is something if not faced and recognized, will guide your life in an unconscious way. Judgment creates guilt, and guilt is an obstacle to growth. It does not allow you to expand because when you are ready to fly it brings you back and tells you no, you cannot, you are...

Nutrition and Spirituality

While this is a subject of great discussion there is still great confusion out there. A few days ago we were invited to speak at a school in Norway, in front of a class filled with children, our children, our future. While their questions were very intelligent and very insightful what caught my attention, and what was asked of me to answer, was about nutrition and dietary habits. The question was how relevant is our way of life with our dietary habits and whether spirituality is connected with our diet. My answer was very simple; we just need to...
