Are You Free?

From moment to moment, we think we are free. I repeat, think, we are free. But if we were to spend time questioning our inner world, we will know that we are not. We will soon realize that we are bonded by lots of things – our family, our career, our interest, our materials, our […]

Better the Ending of Craving

Not even if it rained gold coins can there be satiety in sensual desire. Sensual pleasures are painful and of little sweetness. Realizing this, the wise person takes no delight even in heavenly pleasures. The disciple of the Fully Enlightened One delights in the destruction of craving. ~ Buddha, Dhammapada 186, 187 ~

Apparently, to free the mind is to be free of concepts. To be free of concepts means, to undo all sorts of limitations that binds us. I am speaking of things which we find are restrictive to our sense of being, which disable us to achieve our fullest sense of joy. But then again, peace […]

For a while now I have realized how the living life in societal context is actually meaningless. A friend once asked me, that if she was not playing mom to her kids, wife to her husband, teacher to her students, who then is she?

The Gift

The gift is entrusted to us for safe keeping, for nurturing and development and ultimately for expression. But it is not our gift per se. We are the giver of the gift, not the creator of it.
