Renounce Nothing

What doest it mean to love? It means to be sensitive to life, to things, to persons, to feel for everything and everyone to the exclusion of nothing and no one. For exclusion can only be achieved through a hardening of oneself, through closing one’s doors. And the moment there is a hardening, sensitivity dies….

A little inspiration by Rumi

Those who don’t feel this Love Pulling them like a river, those who don’t drink dawn like a cup of spring water Or take in sunset like supper, those who don’t want to change, let them sleep.

Intimacy

When two lovers are really open to each other, when they are not afraid of each other and not hiding anything from each other, that is intimacy.

Wherever the river takes me

Hello fellow life enjoyers, What I am going to share with you today is the beginning of the end of me. Within the roughly ten years of trying to understand myself and life by reading, meditating and becoming more aware of the here and now, my life already changed drastically for the better. I learned a…

Accept Yourself

“Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning you have been told how you should be. Nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are….

What is love

The last couple of months I have been a little bit out of my normal here and now happy routine compared with the 2 and a half years before that. On a personal emotional level I came across a few challenges and found that I had more hidden pain from the past then I expected….

All that is Beautiful is Feminine

Even when a man is beautiful he has something of the feminine. When a woman is ugly she has something of the male. Beauty is feminine because it cannot be hard, it cannot be stonelike. It can only be like the petals of a rose or a lotus…

Love and the unknown

When you love a woman don’t be bothered about what others have said about love, because that is going to be an interference. You love a woman, the love is there, forget all that you have learned about love. Forget all Kinseys, forget all Masters and Johnsons, forget all Freuds and Jungs. Please don’t become…

Love inside

Love is within man. It is not imported from the outside. It is not a commodity to be purchased when we go to the markets. It is there as the fragrance of life. It is inside everyone. The search for love, the wooing of love, is not a positive action; it is not an overt…

Dropping That Drug

If we really dropped illusions for what others can give us or deprive us of, we would become alert. The consequence of not doing this is terrifying and inescapable — we lose our capacity to love. If you wish to love, you must learn to see again. And if you wish to see, you must…

Ego & Love can not exist together

There is a reason why they cannot exist together. The reason is that darkness has no being of its own, so it cannot exist in front of the sun. Darkness is only the absence of sun –so how can the absence and the presence of the same thing exist together? Darkness is only the absence…

Love yourself

Love starts with self-love. Don’t be selfish but be self-full, and they are two different things. Don’t be a Narcissus, don’t be obsessed with yourself, but a natural self-love is a must, a basic phenomenon. Only then out of it can you love somebody else.
