Sorry, I do not speak English. The text below was written in Portuguese and translated by Google. But I need this much response.
I am a 55 year old Brazilian studying and practicing self-taught meditation for 20 years. I am a great admirer of his work. Have read several of his books, interviews, and also attended various films and videos. I know of no other philosopher who can intertwine so accessible concepts of ancient Eastern wisdom with concepts of quantum physics in a simple, concise, transparent and at the same time profound. For me it is a privilege belonging to his generation. Maybe I could not reach the unitary experience of consciousness in this life was not the contagious brilliance of his ideas and his work
I am newly starting my spiritual journey and I have to say it has been quite a ride! As I read books and search the net for food to appease my spiritual appetite, I have suddenly become over whelmed with which steps to take rather than jumping all over the place. Right now I’m beginning to meditate (once a day) and working towards twice a day, I’m also very interested in Aura reading, getting in touch with my intuition trusting it and the big one is realizing my soul desire and life purpose…which I have no clue what it is, what I need to do to figure it out and this is my biggest struggle, almost to desperations. I look forward to your insightful direction to a purposeful, beneficial, spiritual fulfilling life….
How can one get to the point of forgiving someone who has gone OUT OF HIS WAY to harm and scar you for his life. Instead of realising his mistakes this person, is in fact proud of his actions and looks into the eyes of his victim with an air of superiority, conveying something like - I did what I did to you and there was nothing you could do to stop me.
Unfortunately, I have such a person in my life. It would bring a lot of peace to my heart if I could make myself forgive him. I would be eternally grateful if you could tell me what’s the best way to do that since on my own I find it impossible to do so.
I just recently got married about two weeks ago. I’m a 24 year old female working and attending college. I have had rocky relationships in the past and now I’m married to someone whom I dated for a mere four months before marriage. I think I made a mistake because I never believed in marriage and now I’m in the institution and feel totally depressed. I don’t think I’m marriage material and I don’t want to be. I feel terrible about it. Is there something wrong with me because of not wanting to be confined to the institution. I feel caged now…. I feel no longer free in my mind.
I would love to hear your thoughts on marriage between different races.
Being on the spiritual path we all know that everyone is equal, we are all connected to the one Divine Source and it is all important to see what is on the inside of a person rather than their exterior look. I am married to a man from Indian descent and I am from European stock. I have always tried to keep a high vibration of love and integrity around people that believe races should not mix but I must admit it has been difficult. Especially when some people hold very strong, old fashioned views and they think they have the right to express them. My question is, how does one live in a world where your heart and soul say one thing and society (loudly at times) says another?
I really enjoy reading your books. I find them exciting, hugely insightful, peaceful, and the words I read really resonate me. However, I sometimes feel overwhelmed when trying to implement the teachings into my life. I feel that to follow these teachings and still go about my day to day business is hard work. I feel like I have so many things to remember from your teachings and I feel down on myself for forgetting some of them.
My goal is to live from the level of the soul as much as I can. With this in mind what should I focus on most from day to day? I want my mind to be as clear as possible.
I understand the phrase ‘It’s the silences between the notes that make the music’ and the phrase ‘It’s the empty space inside the vessel that makes the vase’, BUT I can not grasp the phrase ‘It’s the space between the bars that hold the tiger’ . I have pondered it many times. Would you please explain it to me?
Zen koans such as this don’t necessarily have one correct interpretation. They are meant to force the mind out of linear conventional thinking into transcendent insight. This is certainly a good one to ponder for that.
