The Meditator in Love

Meditation is against false love

“If you can move into love making totally, the ego disappears because at the highest peak, at the highest climax of lovemaking, you are pure energy” – Osho (artist unknown)

Love is a many splendid thing and so misunderstood. At a base level love is seen or experienced as an attachment, at it’s highest it’s an inseparability with the universe. Due to karma, the consequences resulting in our situation and perception, everyone has a different understanding of love.

The fact that we can’t agree, that we so oft feel disconnected cannot be resolved intellectually, it is only through meditation, the art of yoga that provides an inner connection to life

Soul Mates

Do you have a soul mate and how do you know who?

One Soul – An illusion by Ines Honfi

The idea of soul mates is something many people dream about in terms of love and relationships. The subject has become immensely popular, many books have been written and many believe their soul mate is out there searching as they are.

The soul mate is loosely defined as a significant other person with whom one can intellectually relate to and empathise with, someone who seems to know what you mean when you say something and can reply in a way that makes sense to you. It is also an element of biochemistry in that your bodies

Substitutes for Love

And human needs

Radhe Krishna are collectively known within Hinduism as the combination of the feminine and masculine aspects of God representing the loving ideal or peak of human possibility.

Even though we think we love someone and even though we fall in love to a degree that we experience an emotional euphoria and sense of well-being, this is not really what love is.

Love is a state of pleasantness within an individual and between people, it is a state of being and not an action. It is one a of life to become love and in doing so you become a very pleasant person who people want to be with.

However we live in a world where love

Who Should you Love?

Navigating life, love and marriage

These days many of us grow up with the idea that we will fall in love and live happily ever after, but if we have any awareness of the world, this idea seems increasingly fragile and even improbable. When growing up, most of our parents argued and if you are a parent, it’s likely that you also argue with your partner in front of your children which creates anxiety in children.

One of the problems not only with the idea of modern love but the very foundation of civilisation is based on ideas, not facts. Our history is incredibly brutal and corrupt. It doesn’t matter what country you live in, your political system and

Marriage; by Love or Arrangement?

What works, old or modern traditions?

Tumblr image

What most people call love is a biochemical process where a person feels attracted to another person or even an idea. But marriage as a social institution is designed to provide a stable upbringing for children and the perpetuation of our species.

There are many forms of marriage with monogamy being most prevalent, but there is also polygamy and polyandry. There are also relationships where a man and impregnates a woman and then buggers off.

The Western ideal is to fall in love and live happily ever after with one’s soul mate, but this seems to very rarely happen and if it does it’s almost like winning a lottery. So what

Our greatest love

Is created in our minds

Love is an idea and like all great ideas, it takes place inside our mind. Remember that perception is something that happens through our senses and our mind that interprets what we see, feel, taste, smell and hear. All experience of our world is internal.

When you fall in love with someone you can interact with physically, in other words love a person you regularly spend time with, who they are even though they exist independently of you is only ever an idea (or a collection of ideas) within our mind. As your mind forms ideas of that person, one of the tragedies of modern relationships is that when that significant other begins to behave

Mystery of Love

What we need to know about loving is no great mystery

We all know what constitutes loving behaviour; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight.

We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy.

It’s we who make it complicated.

~ Leo Buscaglia

“A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose-and don’t let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you

My Daddy Can't Be Here

Her hair was up in a pony tail, her favourite dress tied with a bow.

Today was Daddy’s Day at school, and she couldn’t wait to go.

But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all.

About a dad she never sees, a dad who
