The Taoist Concept of Effortless Action and How to Make It a Part of Your Life

The Taoist concept of effortless action is interpreted differently by different writers, but I think the best example of this kind of functioning is the life of Eckhart Tolle.

As you may know if you are my regular reader, I hadn’t listened to him for years, but since I mentioned him in one of my articles and a video, I decided to look him up again.

It was pleasant to find that he remained the same as he was in his early fame, remaining his childlike self. He often emphasizes the importance of effortless action, as he explains it to be the only kind of action that is aligned with who you are. Read more…

The Dreamlike Nature of Reality Explained, and How to Wake Up

Since I mentioned Eckhart Tolle in a previous article and video, I thought I will check what this teacher is up to, since I haven’t listened to him in years.

I was very happy to find that he was not seduced by the wealth his teaching generates, and that he is still his childlike self. This means that his awakening is genuine.

His teachings are so deep and powerful, how many really understand, I wonder. What he’s giving in every talk is gold, but how many realize that? I wonder if he is a fully liberated teacher in disguise (as I don’t think he ever mentioned being fully liberated).

I watched some of his videos, and as a result of also being interested in Taoism and having read many Hindu sacred texts, something clicked and now I finally understand one concept that kept evading me – how the dreamlike nature of this reality works. Read more…

It’s Unwise to Give Your Power Away

I have no experience with this particular religious following, but I use this video as an example only (I also like the video insights of the author which shows his spiritual growth). Read more…

How to Attain Conscious Immortality According to Taoism

The study of Taoism has filled many of my knowledge gaps of spiritual progress and, armed with this knowledge, I am no longer afraid to allow myself to fully delve into deep meditation again.

In this post I share with you the most important teachings that I was able to find in Taoism. I already wrote about an important Daoist teaching of developing an immortal embryo here. I also touch on some other spiritual traditions with identical teachings.

During my research I often referred to scholarly articles on Jstor.org, especially to the works of Livia Kohn (I read one of her books too), Robert Ford Campany and Fabrizio Predagio. These are the people who translate original Daoist texts into English. Read more…

Personal Transformation Through Relationships

Relationships are wonderful tools for personal transformation, but they usually end when the transformation just starts happening. Here I’m talking about the time when personal hurts and personal brokenness come out, which mark the start of a challenging time for a couple. Read more…

You Must Be Bold In Life To Win

It’s easy to see obstacles as an unnecessary form of evil on our way to success, but without obstacles success cannot be reached. Without the resistance of millions of air molecules the airplane would not be able to lift off, and without the resistance of millions of water molecules we would not be able to swim.

Opposition is essential for any sort of progress. Read more…

In this personal update I would like to address a few topics. Firstly, I would like to address one issue with regards to me making relationship posts.

This is because I got a comment in which a reader expressed disappointment due to me departing from spirituality and talking about relationships. I’m addressing this issue because this comment represents the opinion of many people.

The masses think that spirituality is Read more…

A Spiritual Law to Be the Master of Your Life

If you have been my long-time reader, you know that I have gone through some radical changes of outlook which I describe in the about me page. This caused me to lose at one point most of my subscribers, and left me without any sure source of income.

Despite of the huge opposition Read more…
