Okay, here I go…..

Hello fellow Bon Vivants, For today I keep it really short. It’s a beautiful day out here, nice and sunny 🙂 and as soon as I finish this post I am going to enjoy every bit of it. Just wanted to share with you that for the next week I’ll be totally offline. Tomorrow I…

Chained to the floor?

Friday morning, a little after 11 am. I open my eyes, I feel my body but I can’t move. My arms are stuck to the ground, they feel like concrete and I can’t even move them an inch. My legs are in a similar state, am I chained to the floor? What is this? My…

The Golden Light Meditation

Goodmorning all, The golden light meditation is one of my favorite meditations. First of all because I love my bed and laying down when meditating. Second, when I first started meditating I tried it in the classic Buddha pose but I never really felt comfortable with that. So I was happy to learn that there…

Tratak Meditation

This technique begins from the eyes, because to begin from the mind is difficult. It is hard to control the mind but eyes are outer things, you can control them. So keep your gaze absolutely fixed, staring without blinking. When your eyes are still, your mind will become still……

Enlightenment through laziness!

This is what I call Meditation: You simply mirror everything within or without…….. I can move my hand unconsciously, without watching, or I can move it with full awareness. And there is qualitative difference. When you move it unconsciously it is mechanical. When you move it with consciousness there is grace. Even in the hand,…

Just Say Yes

All my life I’ve been pretty adventurous towards life and what the world has to offer. Way before I started to really dig into ‘who am I and what am I here for’ my basic attitude was always: Try everything, live life to the max and just go for it. But after a while that…

Meditation

Meditation has been for me the most important tool to get to understand myself, become more aware and therefore by itself I slowly changed. I became more alive, joyful and happy.  Often when I talk about meditation I experience that a lot of people don’t know what it really is or how it can benefit…
