The Ostrich Strategy

The Secret on how to lead a mediocre life: The Ostrich Strategy Take a look around, if there is no one in the room whom you aspire to become in 10 years, keep doing whatever you are doing and looking forward to the weekend (or your next vacation).   ************************ Something I learned from my […]

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 […]

When I was young, I was not terribly joyful. I was always perplexed by my existence, and I had a strong spiritual longing ever since I could remember. I was very sensitive. Quite early on, I could feel energy in my body. I didn’t know what it was, but it was very alive. Later, I […]

I have always searched for more, more knowledge, more answers, more myself, more solutions to my existential interrogatives and […]

I obtained my pedagogy degree from Sofia University Klimenr Ohridsky. I used to play for one of the biggest TV […]
