The Bridge To The Shiny City

We all come from the great, big, universal, invisible (to our eyes), eternal self. We are a part of it. Inside and outside, it is there all around us. Then, when we are born, we start a journey which takes us over a bridge to this shiny city called ‘normal life’. On the bridge, we […]

A New You in 2020

For any individual (and for any society), real change happens inside. Changes made outside, without an inner change, are superficial, skin-deep and are bound to fail in transforming life in the long-term. If, on the other hand, there is a real change inside, then a change outside is bound to happen and is only a […]

Our Core Moments: The Best We Have Ever Been

Someone is looking for a nice job, someone else is looking for love, another is looking for a spiritual experience, still another for political power.

Freedom From God, Gurus And Spirituality

I have written a few posts before this one about great wisdom teachers who have taught about letting go of attachments.
