The references to “The Moon”, “Reflection of the Moon” and “Finger pointing to the Moon” are very common in Zen teachings. I really like these symbols, in my opinion, they pretty much describe the very core of our existence as people in the society and the source of our constant and pervasive dissatisfaction. “The Moon” […]

I normally don’t like any “lists” or “stages” finding them too simplistic, but it is just a convenient way to give you some idea about what to expect if you practice meditation over a long time. There are a lot of different classifications in different traditions, this one is based on my personal experience but, […]

Making a statue of Kali, Day and night cutting off the un-needed, Just as she does… She is emerging now, I am the first to hold her fierce gaze, I am offering  my delusions to the Goddess, To test her razor-sharp weapons. Recently I have spent about a month and a half volunteering at the […]

The “meaning of my life”, the purpose, the goal – and more precisely the formulation of it all in my own head – was one of the driving forces on my spiritual search from the early age. And now I meet so many people, young and not so young frantically trying to figure it out […]
