Be The Cause

Each individual experiences life in two worlds. There is the outer world and there is the inner world. One is the realm of the effect while the other is the realm of the cause. When we surrender to the sensory impressions of the outer world, then life is in the realm of effect, and we […]

On Freedom

We can only escape from the world by outgrowing the world. Death may take man out of the world but only wisdom can take the world out of the man. As long as the human being is obsessed by worldliness, he will suffer from the Karmic consequences of false allegiances. When however, worldliness is transmuted […]

Change…Starts From Within

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. But, it too, seemed immovable. As I grew into my twilight […]

Life is hard for two reasons:

“Because you are leaving your comfort zone, or because you are staying in it.” Change is painful, especially when it comes to changing oneself. That is why most of us don’t change.

Kasia Mikolajczyk

I don’t really know where to begin. There have been several events that really determined my journey. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been wanting to be a peace-maker. I always felt quite uncomfortable when seeing people in violence. I didn’t understand why. When I was nine, I got interviewed by a Polish writer. […]

The Insolubility Of Life’s Greatest Problems

The greatest and most important problems of life are all fundamentally insoluble…They can never be solved, bu only outgrown…This ‘outgrowing’, as I formerly called it, on further experience was seen to consist in a new level of consciousness. Some higher or wider interest arose on the person’s horizon, and through this widening of view, the […]

THE INFERNO OF THE LIVING

The Inferno of the Living

There are two ways not to suffer from the inferno we are all living in every day. The first suits most people: accept the inferno and become part of it to the point where you don’t even see it any more. The second is riskier and requires constant attention and willingness to learn: seek out […]
