  • On suffering
    on Dec 1, 2013
    The first of Buddha's four noble truths says that 'there is suffering (dukkha)'. It seems however to be too compact for our understanding, almost an attempt to evade the questioner. The first question that arises in my mind is: "is there more to this...
  • What is Fear?
    on Jul 29, 2013
    "What is Fear?" may be the strangest question of all - it is something so personal, so immediately felt, it feels like it is not amenable to generalization. We feel it lacks a kernel, it lacks substance. It might be evanescent, hover in the air for a...

  • Socrates here and now
    on Dec 15, 2012
    When we think of Socrates and what he has achieved, has realized and thought, it seems to be so far away, he seems to be the star of the philosophical firmament, at least so they tell us, but the light of his teaching is taking so long to teach us, 2...
  • the art of possibility
    on Nov 16, 2011
    Kierkegaard's famous quote:“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential -- for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints; possibility never. A...

  • the musical theory of the mind
    on Mar 12, 2011
    Are we in a state of accord or discord?Neither, we are sustained in between the Minor and the Major and in the end we return to the primitive, the state of nonbeing, the root of it all---We must stress the fact that life is a game whose rules we huma...
  • on what life has to offer
    on Mar 12, 2011
    'Life has no meaning.' This is the nonsense, "bullshit" - to use the technical term used nowadays! - stuff that's been fabricated over and over again. It's completely an aberration; life has a myriad of meanings.'Life has no meaning.' This is the con...

    Reality is non-orientable and the two sides, Heaven and Hell are twins, i.e. they are deposited in each person. It is a matter of choice&circumstance that one fades into one or the other.---Nothingness (or the Sunyata) is the reality. And this re...
