The Real You

If you’re ready to wake up, you’re going to wake up and if you’re not ready, you’re going to stay pretending that you’re just “poor little me”. And since you’re all here and engaged in this sort of inquiry and listening to this sort of lecture, I assume that you’re all on the process of […]

True Prosperity

Money is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.   Kahlil Gibran  

On Moon | Lera Mimizu

For some time now I have been questioning the way, in which general forecasts for the Full or New Moon or eclipses are relevant to OUR PERSONAL LIFE. They are helpful to notice that it’s not only us who are bonkers, but actually everyone is kind of experiencing the same, and it gives a sense […]

One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, […]

Sequoia Trees

Forgotten Tomato | Lera Mimizu

I found this forgotten by everybody tomato on one of the shelves recently. My mum eats them, I don’t. So when she left one month ago this tomato got kind of lost in between the bags and other vegetables. And after one month of hibernating alone it sprouted from within. Our life and inner growth […]
