Walking on the Razor’s Edge

Walking on the razor's edge

Walking the path of truth is really like walking on the razor’s edge. The road is so narrow that it’s very easy to lose your way. When you walk and you get good at walking it, you may become quite proud about it; this pride goes into your head, and lo, you lose the way…. Read More

How to Always Be in Demand by Doing What You Love

How to be in demand

A few months ago I learnt from a truly gifted music teacher (the reason I had to quit is revealed in this donation post). He taught me the most difficult music style there probably is: carnatic. It was my friend who took me to that music school. At first I thought I would join a guitar… Read More

Two Months Without Any Sugar or Caffeine

No sugar or caffeine

It’s been more than two months without any sugar or caffeine. After a few days of intense struggle with sugar in particular, it seemed afterwards that these addictions never existed in the first place.

Four Excesses That Enslave Us

Four excesses that enslave us

There are four excesses that people are firmly slaves to. These excesses consume most of time, money and energy.

The Meaning of The Fool in Tarot

The Fool tarot card

The beauty of the tarot deck is that to different people the same cards tell a different story. Symbols speak to us, and our personal experiences and lessons learnt determine our interpretations.

Don’t Make This Mistake When Expressing Yourself

How to be in demand

Recently I got an email from a reader that sounded something like this: I don’t think it’s fair that you’re making yourself unavailable to the public. All great teachers, like Jesus, healed masses and were always at service to humanity. They didn’t make their lives private, but totally sacrificed themselves to help humanity. Firstly, let me… Read More

Should you have desires or not?
