True or False

One of the major work in our spiritual journey is to discern true from false. That was the sin of Adam. When the snake approached Adam and Eve, he spoke the truth. He told them that they could eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge, the good and the evil. And it’s true. But […]

On Going Extreme

Going extreme is oftentimes an easy way out. In Hebrew, the word me’od means ‘very’, but it also looks like the word mot, which means ‘death’. Whenever we become extreme, we are out of balance and we bring chaos into our lives. This is also true for spirituality. It is very easy to go completely […]

Yes Please

Please read, share and let us remember…that just because we don’t talk about something, choose to hide from it or by fear choose to ban it which may challenge other’s from addressing the subject, the subject of focus does not disappear.

Career Advice

I asked a wise man, “Tell me sir, in which field could I make a great career?” He said with a smile, “Be a good human being. There is a huge opportunity in this area and very little competition.”  

The Six Mistakes of Man

The illusion that personal gain is made up of crushing others. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and […]

A Poison Tree

I was angry with my friend: I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I water’d it in fears, night and morning with my tears; And I sunned it with smiles, and with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew both […]

True Transformation

It is very difficult to do what we already knew is the right thing to do. You can change things around you, but it is very difficult to change yourself. You can change yourself, but this is not true transformation. True transformation is very hard work. If you want to check your spirit, if you […]
