Wide vs. narrow perspective

I’ve been criticized in the past by some people that I am simplifying things. For them, the problem they’ve been seeing was much more complex than how I have been seeing it. That remark was usually coming from people who had a problem with a very narrow perspective. Perspective is a way of looking at things. The first thing we learn if we study perspective is there are different ways of looking at the same Read more…

Reason vs. no reason

An acquaintance of mine asked me: “Why do you write these posts?” and when I told her I don’t write them for any specific purpose she was perplexed. Do I have to? Who said we have to have a reason to do something? If nobody sees a reason in what I do I am totally fine with that. I don’t write them to collect likes on social media or views on my website. I don’t Read more…

Joy vs. pleasure

In the third part of Focus and energy series, I will write about how to gain energy if you have none. I write and talk a lot about enjoyment. Why is it important, why we should explore ourselves to see which are the things we enjoy in life, why we should do the work we enjoy and so on. And I’ve been criticized in the past many times because of that. Usually by people who Read more…

High-value vs. low-value living

In the second part of Focus and energy series I want to talk about focusing on the wrong things. One of the most common problems people are complaining to me about is time. They say “I don’t have enough time.” I know how that feels like because I also had such a complaint soon after I started Potentia Society. There was more and more work to be done and less and less time to do Read more…

The Path vs. the Goal

People come to me and say they have meditated for a few months and they feel no change in their lives. There are multiple points to address here. First just to stop and observe our minds and thoughts without feeling like we are our thoughts is such a big change in perspective that could potentially change our lives for the better if we would truly understand what we have just observed. Even without any other Read more…

Focus and energy

How much we are capable of doing in a single day, week, month, year and consequently life is determined by how much energy or vitality (if you want to call it that) we have on a daily basis. And that is determined by how we acquire energy, how we distribute it and how quickly or slowly we use or drain it. How much energy we have is really determined by our focus. Where our focus Read more…

Lacking vs. having

A few days ago a friend of mine said she was depressed. When I asked her why she feels this way she started telling me how she cannot find any more enjoyment in life and she started telling me all the things that she has to do but doesn’t want to do and all the things that went wrong in the last few years and all the things she hoped would happen but didn’t happen Read more…

Living consciously vs. unconsciously

One of my main purposes in life is just to live consciously. I know I’m not very good at it but I see some progress through the years and that gives me the drive to make it happen every day. But what does living consciously actually mean and why would someone try to live that way? Living consciously would very simply mean living deliberately or intentionally. When we look at the state of our lives Read more…

Formal vs. informal meditation

Through the years I received many questions regarding mind training as it is described in the book Feel like superhuman. Some think that the “how to” of meditation is very simplified and they are interested in the many details that are left out in their opinion. First of all the term meditation is so broad it would be impossible to write a truly comprehensive book about it. I’ve read close to a hundred books on Read more…

Conditional vs. true happiness

In today’s society we hear a lot of promises from a lot of people about a lot of things. If we would just buy a certain product, do certain activities or behave in certain ways then nothing short of miraculous will start to happen in our lives. We will very quickly have all the things that we desire, have the time and means to do everything we always wanted and transform ourselves in the person Read more…
