Witnessing is the key

The ancient Greeks believed that the breath is a giver of life, and when the body dies with the last breath, the soul leaves the body. The word ‘psychosis’ contains the root psyche, (soul, mind, or spirit) and it’s associated with the essence of life (or ‘giver of life’), so psychosis has come to mean […]

It’s All About Witnessing

TETHOS – ORIGIN: from Middle French methode, from Latin methodus, “way of teaching or going,” from Greek methodus, “scientific inquiry, method of inquiry,” originally “pursuit, following after,” from meta- “after,” “a traveling, way.” Meditation requires a method to go into a spaceless whole.

WITNESSING IS SELF-REMEMBERING

Self-remembering is a methodless method that leads toward unity with the whole. When all your unconscious activities become the conscious act of now, and all your doing has been replaced with non-doing, you remember One-Self and have attained awareness. In awareness, you aren’t aware of your awareness. To be aware of your awareness, distance is […]

Gratitude

Life is a gift, but we forget this and end up not being grateful. Observing life via the ego, we feel unhappy, hurt, and confused because we aren’t getting what we want. However, when we drop the ego, we are no longer in conflict with life, which allows the infinite whole to flow through us […]

Health Is About Being

Everyone wants to be healthy, yet so many of us are repeatedly sick and some of us seemingly cannot get well. We experience illness as something extremely personal––in some ways, one of the most deeply felt personal experiences we ever have. Similarly we tend to think of our health as highly personal, perhaps one of […]
