What Happens When You Accept Pain (Instead of Running Away From It)

This post sprang from my personal experience of not running away from pain.

This habit was present in me from childhood. I Instinctively knew that if I avoided pain, this would form a habit and then even the smallest painful things would be hard to deal with and instead I would want to escape them.

Of course, since I wasn’t independent as a child, I had to accept the conventional healing methods given by my mother. But even my mother had a similar philosophy, and would only make me take pain medicines, or any other medicines for that matter, if the condition was serious. Read more…

Spiritualized Ego Versus True Awakening

Whilst living in India I had my fair share of experiences with people who come here for spiritual development. Since India is a spiritual place, and has many ashrams and other places of devotion, the string of pilgrims is stable.

Usually, those who come here for spiritual development are the most unnatural kind and it’s rare to meet someone who is truly awakened. There are also those spiritual aspirants who know they are only seekers and are humble about it; but unfortunately many are still strongly in the grip of the ego which convinces them that they are already very spiritual.

The Way I Live My Life: Simplicity, Mindfulness and Inner Guidance

In this post I would like to share some of my philosophy of life and how I put it into practice.

Many of you know that I live in India. My life is very unconventional, and it became unconventional because I followed the call of my Spirit rather than the demands of the world.

I love my life and I live the way that I want to. I never fear any change. If something goes against my Spirit, I stop doing it, no matter what the outside world threatens me with, be it loss of funds or loss of face. Read more…

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…

Regaining the Kingdom of God

Reading Taoist texts after having deeply researched Hinduism fills all the gaps of each philosophy. I find these two doctrines complementing and explaining each other. Buddhism can also be better understood by studying the previous two belief systems.

In this post I would like to focus only on the topic of destroying the conscious mind, having touched it in a previous article. This topic is very misunderstood by many who hear of it. It’s actually nothing frightening, but because this statement is perceived by the false mind, it, and not you, feels scared of it. 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…
