Creating a new personal paradigm, a brand new worldview which completely changes the way you see and understand yourself and the world is the most important step in creating your very own personal utopia.

Being Go(o)d

Many spiritual traditions particular popularist views of Buddhism, some elements of spiritualist Christianity, Kabbalistic Judaism and Sufism and much of the New Age movement seem to focus on the suppression and ultimately on the obliteration of the Ego as a fundamental path towards getting closer to God and/or your ‘Higher Self’.

There is a peculiar Kabbalistic custom which encourages tasting the food prepared for the Sabbath before the day actually begins.

Mean what you say and say what you mean

One word spoken with intention is more powerful than a million mumbled prays, magical incantations and babblings from Holy Scriptures. Words without intentions are like the bodies of Angels without souls, and words without intentions are like souls without bodies. But words said with intention have the power to storm heaven and permanently transform the […]

Become Your Own Teacher

No one can teach you the ancient wisdom contained in your being they can only be your mirror. I hate teachers, gurus, rabbis, politicians, priests, swamis and other self-declared authoritarian quacks that think that they know best, that they are somehow superior and better than regular common people. The bible I think, could be something […]

Moving On With Madonna

Madonna has been throwing out all of Guy Richie’s stuff in an attempt to erase his memory from her life.

Just Let Go!

Sometimes life doesn’t give you time to think, to theorise, to philosophise, to ponder and wonder, what the deeper meanings are. As a self-proclaimed “Urban Guru” i find this non-thinking type of service, slightly challenging, but that’s because i think too much, and God/ the Universe and everything is telling me to just stop! Not […]
