Avoid confusion.

Avoid confusion.

Simplify your life and find out what is important for you. Don’t confuse things. We confuse education with intelligence. Happiness with pleasure. Achievement with sales numbers. Real value with popularity. Longevity with a number of years lived. Health with the looks. Facebook likes with real human interactions. Size of the muscle with fitness level. Sex with love. Starchy, sugary, processed stuff ...[Read More]

Vipassana – again… (memories from the past)

Vipassana – again…  (memories from the past)

Vipassana – again… This time my destiny led me to the birthplace of Buddha – the town of Lumbini in Nepal. A small place visited by Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world ( there are estimated 350 million Buddhists worldwide ). A relatively small area became a construction grounds for Buddhist monasteries representing different branches of Buddhism. From Japan and China to  Sr ...[Read More]

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

The way of Nature Mother Nature provides. Listen to her voice. Listen to her instructions. Her voice is part of you. She will tell you what to do. Use her elements to stay fit and healthy. Use air, sun, earth and water. You are part of her. Do not avoid her. Flow with rather than against her. She is your teacher. Learn. Pay attention to your own body and everything around it.   Use breath to ...[Read More]

Appreciation

Appreciation

Every day I try to remember to appreciate every moment. Every day I try to remember how lucky I am. Every day I try to remember what a privilege it is to have food, water, roof over my head, shower, refrigerator, health, freedom, education, family, friends, time and much, much more! Every day I try to remember not to get irritated by the little inconveniences that life provides from time to time. ...[Read More]

Two sides of the coin.

Two sides of the coin.

Yin and Yang or the aspect of duality is present in everything. Male/Female, Day/Night, Dark/Light etc. etc. It is no surprise then, that our daily cultivation includes both elements. We are not trying to find some imagined quality of neither Yin nor Yang. Quite the opposite – embrace both as an integral part of life. As long as they remain proportional to each other and our particular needs ...[Read More]

Accepting life’s changes.

Accepting life’s changes.

I am extremely grateful for my teachers, my wife, my family, and friends and all my life’s experiences that have led me to this moment. I can not imagine being able to be who I am without them all. It is a challenging time for me now. My dearest mother’s ability to take care of herself is slowly decreasing. Just like I needed her for a big part of my life, she needs me now. The choice ...[Read More]

A simple thing to remember.

A simple thing to remember.

How many times a day do we expect something from our children, spouse, family, friends, coworkers, bosses, or the world in general?! How many times we are deeply disappointed when our expectations are not fulfilled right away?! I want my partner to be like this. I want my children to behave like this. I want people to be like this. The question is: what do I give? What is My behavior? How can I ex ...[Read More]

Relativity of perception. Challenges and opportunities.

Relativity of perception. Challenges and opportunities.

It is often difficult to call something “positive” or “negative”. What we call bad is frequently the result of misunderstanding and not following the natural order of things which results in what we generally refer to as ” negative” occurrences. For example: “bad weather”, rain, being tired, cold etc. Complaining about it is like complaining about the fact that we have to breathe. With ...[Read More]

Get yourself unstuck

Get yourself unstuck

This morning I was sitting and drinking my hot lemon water. It was still a bit dark outside as I was looking out of the window, enjoying the moment of quiet contentment. I looked at the window sill that had something on it that I could not recognize. A shape of an object I could not identify. Intrigued I was staring at it and straining my mind to no avail. I just couldn’t figure out what it ...[Read More]
