Belief – A Redundant Idea

Updated from June 2016

As we think, so we become

Beliefs are the thoughts and convictions that we generally hold to be true, they are ideas without substance having no actual proof or evidence. Beliefs may contribute to or hinder our development and understanding of the world, and who we are.

People used to believe the earth was flat, but today we know it’s round from testimony and scientific consensus, or you maybe you have flown and seen the curvature of the Earth. The erroneous belief has been replaced by acquired or direct knowledge, therefore we no longer have to believe because we know. But so many were so attached to that particular belief, it took hundreds of years to

The Human Condition

Calling for the transformation of the humanity

Correspondence to The Human Condition

Promotional ideas from WTM have been appearing in my Facebook feed so I spent some time reading and listening to their ideas which I find find noble and liberating. There is no doubt a major transformation is necessary to prevent the total destruction of our species yet our elected leaders continue to play lip service to our troubles while engaging more deeply in games of destruction.

Unfortunately the intellect can only grasp so much and is therefore limited. The human mind is indeed like a computer so badly programmed that it barely functions as it should and instead it’s continually scheming to obtain temporary

Caste and Class

Social divisions throughout history

In looking at the world we have naturalism which sees biology as being the determining factor in life, modern humanism that sees cultural norms as the defining factor which is where we are now, yet this is based on the perception of power and possession of animalism or base survival.

The natural world isn’t fair, just or kind. It’s a place where the strong dominate, exploit, use or even kill the weak because it’s the natural order of life. In the race for survival, the fittest and strongest life-form on Earth are humans. The natural world is not devoid of compassion and kindness, it’s just that the more powerful rule over the weaker and from a

The Demise of Civilisations

Why do civilisations end?

With all its wisdom why was the civilized ancient world not able to withstand or overthrow the invaders?

Wisdom can not save one when times change and the evil attacks and invades. The physical forces who were guided by greed and selfishness destroyed all ancient world slowly and gradually. The fall of ancient world’s last developed times began decaying about 5500 years ago, when Mahabharata war had ended.

The ancient civilized world began its decay and people were misled and they began to fight and lay claims to others properties and this was also coincidental of commencement of Kali Yuga [an epoch of machine] as mentioned in Vedic texts. There upon greed led communities invaded

The Marriage of Children

A crime against humanity

Marriage is a global institution and if we step back into history there was a natural pairing off mostly between young men and women as they reached a balance of physical and mental maturity that enabled them to live happily and raise a family.

It is probable that there has always been some deviant or criminal behaviour within tribal groups but more so in the field of conquest. But the majority of the world’s population who had achieved a sense of balance and purpose in life would instinctively know when the time for marriage was right and this time was defined as when the girl is capable of bearing children and caring for them.

Eight Steps to Happiness

And a solution to end suffering

Master, what is the secret to happiness?””Not to argue with idiots””Master. I disagree that this can be the secret” “Yes, you are right”

There are many benefits to putting the instructions of Langri Tangpa’s “Eight Verses of Training the Mind” into practice. The practice helps us to eliminate the ignorant mind of self-cherishing and self-grasping, the root of all suffering and problems.

It shows us how to transform adverse conditions into the spiritual path, giving us the opportunity to use our daily problems and issues that would normally be obstacles as our actual daily practice so we can make progress in our spiritual practice.

We live in spiritually degenerate times. Fewer people are

Modest is Not Hottest

Ideas about growing up, conformity and fashion for girls

Eye candy

Growing up in our materialistic world is a challenge and many the many self esteem issues so many suffer from stem back to those moments of comparison with others, in particular the unrealistic magazine and makeup images of what you should look like.

The fashion industry promotes the body beautiful with shorter skirts, lower necklines, bigger busts, thinner legs, perfected eyebrows, and a pencil thin waistline. Girls are being constantly told exactly how to look and how to be hot, to be desired, and sexy mostly by males.

Our world is very elitist and this is mostly to do with basic survival needs, like more money and

Drugs and society

Why I the Reason?

Humans have been using drugs throughout all known history. Almost every culture tested the properties of almost every plant in substance within its domain. Some plants /substances produced fatal results, but some produced therapeutic results and became medicines while others produced results that we refer to as ‘mind altering’.

In hunter gatherer communities, one of two people would take a drug and to gain insight as to where to find food, or solutions to the problems they were experiencing. Often this person was the Shaman who was not always a male in every culture.

The use of drugs like cannabis, mescaline and ayawasca were tools for those special occasions as was alcohol. But it was alcohol

Does History Matter?

Why should you care?

To some history matters and to others it doesn’t. For some who are completely content, all that matters is this moment but for those who feel uncertain about the nature and purpose of life, they look to history for clues and reasons for our existence.

In examining our history, the field of archaeology has developed. But this is not an exact science and the results of all our archaeological excavations and research produce results and answers which are suppositions and not facts. Of course many archaeologists and researchers dress up the evidence to fit into their particular theory.

Classical mythology is that of the Christian Bible in which all Christian biased researchers interpret all evidence as

Massage Power

An old remedy for modern times

There is no doubt that massage is perhaps the oldest healing art because we have known for many centuries that just a little rubbing ouch go away. But it’s not just humans, most animals enjoy being stroked and rubbed, primarily because it makes them feel good.

In today’s modern world what we feel is shaped by external forces, and much money we have, how good we look and who our friends are. In the old world he felt good because you were powered the right food, from keeping enjoyable company and living a life that had some sense of purpose.

In this age of individualism, relationships tend to be superficial and our happiness is
