A difficult to name feeling, that is shared by many of us. We may be unable to explain it to others, or even to ourselves. Sometimes, we believe that we know the reason, but later realize that it is something else. This feeling comes in different forms. It could be ongoing, or repeatedly waxing and […]

I have very clear recollections of my earliest experiences with music. Listening to music as a one, two and three year old baby, music was pure magic. It was an actual mystical experience, with no notes, voices, instruments etc’, unmatched by anything else that this baby knew. It wasn’t just about sounds. It transported me […]

They come through the doors – searching. They want answers, they want guidance. They’re afraid to be disappointed yet again. Perhaps this time it’s going to be worth it. Perhaps this church, this synagogue, this teacher, these writings, these practices . . . Perhaps finally, this will be IT. An answer . . . Is […]

My previous article was released on May 16. This is the longest gap that I had in writing these articles. This summer has been a challenging one for me. My mother had her cancer return and the therapy that was meant to help her, made her condition much worse. At that point I received a […]

They could be poor burglars stealing from individuals; extremely rich and powerful people stealing from entire countries; or anything in between.

Whenever it comes to spirituality, it almost seems as though Money is a bad word. It is presented as if it is on the opposite end from spirituality. There are many possible reasons for this. Perhaps one them is that money is considered as belonging to the materialistic/physical world, used for purposes of materialistic attainment, […]

There’s a saying: “The greater the expectation, the greater the disappointment”. Most of us have expectations. We use our expectation as one of the means to guide us. That is to say, we create an invisible line connecting the action in the present moment, with the expectation for a certain outcome in the future. This […]

A job, a house, a family, faith, a steady relationship, knowledge, a field of specialty . . .   these and many others serve as our measuring stick for what we call “security” or “stability”. Many of us regard the words “security” and “stability” in the particular context of “something that is good, beneficial, preferable, desirable […]

When I criticize someone, I’m really saying: “I am better!”. I say that I am better because of a soft, practically inaudible voice inside of me that’s saying: “You’re not good enough”. Every time that I criticize someone, I reinforce that small inner voice, giving it the strength to speak again and weaken me further. […]

Every four years the olympics take place and usually new records are set. This could mean that athletes today are better than athletes twenty, fifty and hundred years ago. But I don’t think so. For the most part, new records lie within a narrow range over the previous records. Very early on, an aspiring athlete […]

Did you ever notice how people’s voices change in response to changes in their circumstances, thoughts or emotions? When someone talks on the phone for example, and we don’t see the other party, we can tell by their voice whether they just received good news or bad news, or whether they got surprised, angry, anxious […]

People who hurt others, are by necessity suffering themselves. Hurting others is in a way a form of communication for the offender based on their own painful experiences; it is a cry for help. When we regard them as victims who are suffering – rather than offenders – we can discover compassion. Also; Becoming hurt […]

Who are you? You are not your body! You are not your arms, legs, brain, muscles, face, heart, kidneys, fat or skinny, healthy or sick, fully functional or disabled. You are given a body as a means of interacting with the physical world. You are aware of your body but you are not your body. Like […]

Here is a tool for getting unstuck. From going around in circles, not finding answers or solutions, to effortlessly having the answer fall in our lap. We’re familiar with seeing a question mark following a series of words that are to be understood as a question. Interestingly, questions in writing don’t really need to be […]

The world is amazing. But “amazing” is just a word. Being only human, we don’t have the capacity to grasp the world for what it truly is. We have five senses. They filter the world for us, allowing in only a portion of reality, which itself is endless, timeless, infinite. But even after the filtration […]
