All the self-improvement programs…

I have gone through a lot of self-improvement, self-actualisation, self-realisation and “enlightenment” courses in my 33 years of life. The first self-improvement program I attended was when I was 15 years old! I recently finished my almost 5 year stint at Landmark, of which 1.5 years was as a Introduction Leader. At this point – […]

I experience this world through my organism and yours and everybody else’s..

I am truly indebted to the conversation of Mastery in Life generated by Werner Erhard.

Moving at the speed of time!

Suppose that you are standing by the tree in front of your house. Suppose that a cycle and car pass by you in the same direction. You would probably observe two things: both the cycle and the car passed by you and the car moved faster than the cycle. If you dwell on this for […]

The problem of “Come and Do it for me!”

In most of my blog-posts, I make it a point to write directly about myself. The idea there is to not generalize what I notice in myself for the rest of humanity. But then there are some observations that we can make that holds good for a large section of the population – which includes […]
