Sex, Liebe und die Suche nach Sinn

Spirituell gefärbte Gedanken und Geschichten zur Evolution der Liebe

In English

My American friends have been incredible supporters and inspirations while writing the book and creating this page. Since I could only publish the book in German for now, I thought I would use this blog and translate some of the blog-posts and chapters of the book and publish them here.

You will find the posts in the category English on the right side of the page. Excerpts of the book will follow below.

 

The Context:

Andrew Cohen, my last spiritual teacher used to say that context is everything. In that he was right and this quote by the late great Indian spiritual teacher and activist Vimala Thakar describes beautifully, what it is that propelled the writing of the book and the blog.

There is not your mind and my mind, it’s the human mind. It’s a collective human mind, organized and standardized through centuries. The values, the norms, the criteria are patterns of behavior organized by collective groups. There is nothing personal about them. We may close the doors to our rooms and feel that nobody knows our thoughts, but what we do in so-called privacy affects the life around us. If we spend our days victimized by negative energies and negative thoughts, if we yield to depression, melancholia and bitterness, these energies pollute the atmosphere. Where then is privacy?

The study of the mind and the exploration of inner freedom is not something utopian, is not something self-centered, but is urgently necessary so that we as human beings can transcend the barriers that regimentation of thought has created between us. Then we will perceive ourselves, each as unlabeled human being….a miniature wholeness.

In spirituality, none of us escape the challenges. They will pursue us where ever we go. We carry within us the inheritance of the human race; the knowledge, the experience, the conditionings of the total human race are contained in each of our minds.

We create screens of resistance. And adjustment of mutual resistances is called relationship. This is the stuff of human relationships. I adjust some of my prejudices and preferences to go with yours and you adjust with mine and that we call a family. That we call a friendship. That is why human beings have yet to be born.

It is only fragments that have emerged through the human animal who has inhabited the globe. And the fragments are very charming sometimes, but the whole human being has yet to be born. Then only there can be a human religion and then only there can be a human society.
