Can I ask myself what it is that I really know? Am I open to radically changing the way I think, feel and act? This blog pursues these questions and reflects where this ongoing exploration into consciousness and into my original nature leads me.
The vicāra ‘who am I?’ is an investigation, examination or scrutiny of our fundamental consciousness ‘I am’, because only by keenly scrutinizing or inspecting our consciousness ‘I’ can we discover who or what we really are – what this consciousness ‘I’ actually is.

I want to bring to you material from various sources as well as my own experiences that can assist us to realize ourselves as a part of this one spaceless and timeless Being that we all are. This can lead to the perspective and realization of our true nature. Then we can stop seeking, if even only for an instant. Then see what happens…
“If we’re a free person, we aren’t conditioned by the things around us. We just smile to them and we make our path. Our surroundings are like a mirror. If we smile, the mirror smiles. If we cry, the mirror cries. If we’re angry, then the situation becomes angry. But even if the situation looks angry, if we are able to smile, then the surroundings smile with us. So the surroundings are coming from our mind.”

The more we can live in mindfulness moment by moment, the more we will be in a clear mental, emotional and physical space. Living a peaceful and orderly life makes it possible for us to live in the energy stream of our True Being. May this blog support you in that.
Be well in all you do!
