I am proud of my princesses! July 30, 2007

They used to be green, immature cherries: growing wild and uncertain, knowing nothing of themselves, desperately looking for happiness and love…

They used to be simple pretty girls till one day they became aware of their royal dignity and female powers.

They found out that actually every one of them is nothing less than a princess: good hearted, beautiful, generous, loving and forgiving.

Today they are shining like these fresh jolly cherries on the picture, with the most beautiful colors of life: glowing eyes, beaming faces, open hearts, lovely dresses, gorgeous smiles…

Who will not recognise princesses in them immediately? (more…)

 

Meditation is like drinking July 29, 2007

Meditation is like drinking the most incredible drink, drinking not with your mouth but with the top of your head… Amazing! 

This sensation is unique and still very recognisable by everyone who is a realised person. I know it is absolutely useless to describe it to those who have not yet experienced that blissful state, but this is something so powerfully beautiful that I just can not keep myself from singing praise to it!..

When I feel the cool breeze on top of my head(normally I almost always feel it, but it gets cooler and stronger while meditating) it feels absolutely real like a soothing and gentle shower coming down my head, cooling my brain… (more…)

 

The Lamp July 27, 2007

   I saw a funny lamp in a shop-window

 “How ugly!” – thought I and moved on.

  

 A friend of mine has bought that lamp

 I saw it lit up: “How beautiful!” – thought I.

   

How often do we pass by a funny, miserable person

 And walk away?

  

How often do we light up the others

 When we really can?

Is there universal morality beyond culture and religion? July 25, 2007

I was invited by Chatherine Morgan to write a guest post to her Blog “Be the change you want to see in yourself” – thanks for the oppotunity, Catherine! I decide on a topic that can be of intreset for many, I hope.

Is there universal morality beyond culture and religion?

Today the talks of intercultural/cross-cultural communication are getting more and more popular: East and West, South and North are facing each other closer, trying to check out the differences for better understanding. What comes out of it has mostly the following leitmotive: “We are so much different; culture has impact on everything; always watch out the culture factor; religious background explaines everything; religions are so different, no wonder there are missunderstandings…” And so on…

Some time ago I was very keen on such topics and used to find my pleasure in revealing astonishing cultural differences to my friends or clients. However at some point I realised that it all leads only to separation and not to understanding and collaboration!

Further I relised that there must be some universal values, common for every human being. Some universal values going beyond culture or religion.  (more…)

 

Scientific picture of the real world July 24, 2007

“I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world is very deficient.

It gives a lot of information, puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us.

It cannot tell a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight, knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity.

Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.”

Dr. Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel prize winner and a founding father of modern quantum science.

 

Why do my eyes glow? July 22, 2007

photo of axinia’s eyes

Many people notice some special shine, or glow in my eyes. That is not a common thing. Want to know how do I make my eyes glow?

My mystery behind is simple: The glowing eyes is nothing but a pleasant side-effect of getting the Self-Realisation (Kundalini-awakening) and practicing Sahaja Yoga.  

No one knows for sure, but they say it has something to do with the activating of the parasympathetic nervous system at the moments of thoughtless awareness (meditation).

Interestingly, it had been known and described by some spiritual people of the past. Jyaneshwara (12751296), one of the greatest sages of India depicts the phenomenon in his script “Jyaneshwari”, Chapter  VI as follows:

“Kundalini is one of the greatest energies. The whole body of the seeker starts glowing because of the rising of the Kundalini. Because of that, unwanted impurities of the body disappear. The body of the seeker suddenly looks very proportionate and the eyes look bright and attractive and the eyeballs glow.” 

Want to have your eyes sparkle and your face beam? – get your Self-Realisation! J

The Ego and the Super Ego July 21, 2007

 photo by axinia

Our ego is the means by which we make our way through life, without we would simply sit and vegetate. Our sense of “I”, our mental awareness of self and our drive to accomplish necessary tasks are all driven by the ego, and it is perfectly natural part of our human makeup. 

However, problems can arise when we become too identified with this sense of I-ness. When this happens we become increasingly isolated from the world and begin to lose sight of our true relationship with the cosmic ocean in which we exist. 

The super ego is that part of us which relates to our emotional makeup, in effect the home of our conditionings. As we mature, this subtle entity interacts with our ego to reinforce our prejudice and opinions. (more…)
