Catharsis, a Path to Self-Realisation

“The method of repression is to not express. If you feel angry, you don’t express it. You suppress it, you don’t allow it to come out. My method is quite the contrary. If you are angry, express it.” ~ Osho Powerful negative emotions, if not released, remain trapped in your body forever, and this in turn, leads to disharmony in the body, pain, malfunction and eventually disease. Catharsis is a powe... »

Death and the Great Transformation: Three Versions of Dying

Death and the Great Transformation: Three Versions of Dying

Dying is a mystery, and many of us fear it. But, much like the thrill of discovering self love, death and our relationship to those hours slipping towards darkness (or as is more famously known as, ‘out towards the light’,) becoming familiar with and meditating on how we feel about our own deaths can be a huge release. It’s like coming face to face with ourselves and finally giving ourselves the p... »

6 Things to Learn about Happiness from being on Retreat

Some of us are lucky and are either born knowing how to self nurture and self love, or are mindfully taught and learn it from someone along the way. But for the rest of us, happiness is often a mystery to be unfurled, a mirage in the desert, and something continuously out of reach, no matter how hard we reach for it. For the introvert or empath particularly, living in the materialistic box-culture... »

Satori – The Zen Concept of Enlightenment and Self-realisation

Satori – The Zen Concept of Enlightenment and Self-realisation

“You and I sip a cup of tea. That act is apparently alike to us both, but who can tell what a wide gap there is subjectively between your drinking and my drinking? In your drinking there may be no Zen, while mine is brim-full of it. The reason for it is : you move in a logical circle and I am out of it.” ~ Introduction-Zen-Buddhism, D.T. Suzuki In Zen Buddhism, Satori is ‘a glimpse of truth’ or a ... »

Three Ways to Become One With Your Higher Self

Three Ways to Become One With Your Higher Self

“Pain is inevitable, Suffering is optional.” ~ Haruki Murakami OK, I know. Functioning on a low vibration is just so much easier. Why take on more, your soul in perfection, your supposed destiny when you can sit back and coast? Being inert, static… no stagnant is just so satisfyingly anti-life. It’s a rejection of life and the gift you have been given. Better settle for that. It should be en... »

3 Ways to Drop the Mask for Good

3 Ways to Drop the Mask for Good

“We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing some of our own skin.” ~ André Berthiaume The subject of self is expansive to say the least. Will anyone ever get to know who we really are? Do we even know? Is the self entirely an illusion, or are we made up of a multitude of egotistical masks and archetypal projections that are layered upon each other... »

Conscious Dreaming: Meditations to Experience the Spirit World

Conscious Dreaming: Meditations to Experience the Spirit World

“The individual no longer needs to exist in separation, and becomes instead the all. The First Breath is the thinnest line on the horizon between the all and the nothing.” ~ Daniel Stone, The Dreamer Who Dreams You It’s rare that you come across a piece of writing or writer that is able to make you sing with higher frequencies. For me, Osho is one of them. Though much disputed as a charlatan and l... »

How to Melt Old Karmic Patterns with Pure Love

How to Melt Old Karmic Patterns with Pure Love

If the West favours the left-handed, logic and analytical side of the brain and the East favours the creative, spiritual and feeling-centered side of the brain, then it’s no surprise that in the West, we approach our problems all too often with cool logic and analysis. That’s not to say that these approaches are valid and appropriate in many problem-solving situations in life, but when it comes to... »

Perfect Manipulation of the Universe: Not Saying Things to their Completion

“This is the way of Zen, not to say things to their completion. This has to be understood; it is a very important methodology. Not to say everything means to give an opportunity to the listener to complete it. All answers are incomplete… This way, if somebody is trying to understand Zen intellectually he will fail. It is not an answer to the question but something more than the answer. It is indic... »
