Krishnamurti on beeing the world

Hey everybody,recently a book found its way to me written by Jiddu Krishnamurti. It was labelled You are the world. In this book he shows one central problem that binds us to suffering and not living in the present. And since his way of looking at things was new to me I would like to share it with you. So the central Problem that we are dealing with is that we are not living in Read more…

a course in miracles or the bible 2.0

Hello dear readers, Today I want to give a small introduction to the Course in miracles or at least show the general direction this psychoanalytical bible 2.0 is heading towards. The first question that arose within myself was. Why was there a need for another holy book? In my view it was about time that a new holy book addressed the psychological and emotional intelligence that had massively grown within the population during the last Read more…

Forgiveness as a way of selfempowerment

After taking a break for a while, I am back with fresh energy and motivation. This text is about the power of forgiveness and how it can serve you to regain your true greatness. From our childhood, school, early friendships, our upbringing and early relationships, and even intergenerational trauma we carry lots of suppressed emotions in our bodies.

Travel

Travelling alone

The longer I am home now, the more I meet people telling me that they would not have been able to travel for a year and a half and especially not alone. So in this text I would like to describe some parts of the travelling alone experience. I guess in my case I viewed travelling alone as some part of education, as a part of not only knowing the world from the internet but Read more…

Death

Near death experiences and the lacking of a scientific explanation for them

Recently I read Raymond Moodys book The light beyond. In this Book Moody looks into near death experiences and alongside with Elisabeth Kübler-Rosse he is the first one to introduce this topic into the scientific discourse. In the book he discusses the difficulties on classifying those and which elements make up a near death experience for him. He also refers to an american study perfomed by George Gallup which counts the following elements as near Read more…

Nietzsche and spirituality

Some people might say that it is completely absurd to put these two words in one headline. Well I don´t and here is why. Nietzsche is one of the rather critical thinkers of the end of the 19th century.

Vipassana – Buddhas path to enlightenment and a way to release emotional trauma

Probably it is the best when I start with the fact that I recently participated in a Vipassana Seminar in the peruvian andes and the following writing is inspired by partaking in this course. Everybody that agrees to five moral rules (no killing, no stealing, no sex, lying, no drugs) that have to be obeyed during the course alongside the schedule and wants to give the method an honest trial can participate (if his application Read more…

Spirituality

A philosophers guide to spirituality

Spirituality same as philosophy is an area that is dealing with the abstract, the metaphysical, the good life, what happens after this existence on earth and a lot more. But venturing into spirituality provides much more risk of mental abuse by self proclaimed gurus, healers with seemingly magic powers and high financial loss when investing into seemingly necessary gadgets for health and wellbeeing. To the outsider this gathering of people with alternative healing techniques, a Read more…
