The therapeutic value of emotional detox

From a very young age we are taught to hide our true feelings and keep up the pretense that we have everything under control. We are told not to laugh as people will take us lightly and not to cry as it will make us look weak. In one word, unacceptable! Have you ever wondered, though, how much you are missing by abstaining from expressing these feelings? Laughing and crying: Two sides of the same coin Laughing and crying are the two most fundamental aspects of human behaviour, externalizing  the […]

Comforting Lies vs. Unpleasant Truths

Sketch artists usually depict this kind of reality: people in general have the tendency to avoid achieving self-awareness. We also tend to refrain from seeing the true position that humans have in life and in the universe. Every time such sketches are posted on Facebook they get too many “likes” and thus rises the question: Who are the ones who find comfort in lies? In my opinion, we all do. Some of us more often and in many aspects of our life while others less often and in fewer aspects, […]

EROS, Eternally Invincible…

A Zen poem dedicated to eros! Eros may be the closest substance to the concept of “life”, though  transcendental at the same time.

Nirvana is the door to Enlightenment. Thus, Eros is the door to Enlightenment and to life itself.   All these refer to the moment it reaches its climax and are not necessarily related with the […]

The root problem of all problems is mind itself.

The first thing to be understood is what mind is, of what stuff it is made, whether it is an entity or just a process, whether it is substantial or dreamlike. And unless you know the nature of the mind, you will not be able to solve any problems of your life. You may try hard, but if you try solve single individuals problems, you are bound to be a failure -that is absolutely certain- because in fact no individual problem exists: mind is the problem. If you solve this […]
