Time of Disorder

Dear friend, It could be that you are experiencing one of the most difficult things one can experience on their life’s journey, precisely that the entire bedrock is faltering and perhaps falling? Perhaps you experience a weightless state without fixed points of reference? This is not an easy weightlessness, because experiencing the ground beneath you giving way can be very frightening and painful. It is comforting to know that this is not abnormal, no matter how frightening it seems. It could be that you are experiencing the dark night of the soul, where nothing gives meaning or nourishment o ..read more

Dark Side – Part One
The Contemplative Life Blog
by Norwegian
10M ago
Not to being able to truly love and accept others in their imperfect and beautiful state is hugely connected to not loving ourselves. The rejection of others is actually a rejection of yourself. Seeing your own darkness, even evil, is surprisingly freeing. When you truly see “it all”, and you contemplate your dark side, you find there is nothing to defend anymore. This is also when you see that you need forgiveness, and to forgive yourself and love yourself in spite of some evil tendencies lurking within. Even so, I am still wondering whether the evil in us can be pure evil per se, or if it’s ..read more

Death on a Hill

I have been thinking about dying lately. Then I mean not so much the physical death but the death of ego. In my own ego I find a lot of good things and also bad things. I believe partly the reasons for these nuances are that the good experiences I have had, yet also the wounds I carry with me from my upbringing have formed my ego and personality. Some of these bad experiences in my upbringing and life from younger days, have been more or less traumatic and therefore they have also formed my ego very strongly. I realise when I react strongly towards what people say or do in relation to me or o ..read more

Treasure

A wise man said, where your heart is, that’s where your treasure is. Ponder those words today. Think about, where is your heart? Where is your fear? Where is your joy? Even, who are you, really, deepest within? Carl Jung said, where your fear is that’s where your task is. I believe sometimes our fear, our joy and our heart’s yearnings are closely knit together. I remeber as a teenanger I was thinking deeply about the nature of man’s and my own heart. I asked myself, am I good or am I evil, deepest within. It was a difficult and painful question to ask. Especially when there were no wise guide ..read more
