Be authentic

Friday June 8, 2018

To live an authentic life one has to find out what one really wants to live.

One has to live one’s ideas, no matter what.

Throw away all spiritual concepts and ideals, be authentic.

Do not bother if others call it egoistic, eccentric, crazy etc.

Find out on your own.

If one represses one’s wishes, desires, one stops learning and growing.

Do not look for the approval of anybody.

Have the courage to follow your own star.

Only by living according to one’s inner wishes one can find one’s original way through this life.

Risk.

Perhaps it proves futile, then it is your authentic understanding.

Perhaps you find fulfillment, then this too is your original understanding.

Certain desires, not fulfilled longings, brought us here into this world.

Now take the chance.

Live it.

Go for it.

Only you can find out what is your original authentic way to live a content and joyous life.

Take the freedom to live whatsoever is your deepest wish.

This life is a gift for you to discover and live it in your original way.

Love,
Pan

Sunday April 29, 2018

Time for a new play.

The Hill is transforming into an ashram.

A place for devotion, a sacred place for transformation and meditation.

The devotion is to the transcendence of the mind and the awakening to ones Buddha nature.

The Hill ashram is a place where friends support each other to discover their unlimited potential of the inner being.

Love,
Pan

Leaving the known behind – Dejando atrás lo conocido

Saturday November 11, 2017

Whatsoever we focus on is what is going to happen to us.

When one is concerned only with one’s so called self, one becomes isolated in the concept of me or I. One becomes, as Alan Watts describes the common state of people, a Skin-Encapsulated Ego. So, since ancient days the wise recommend to put one’s focus on something beyond the concept of me or I.

The two options that I recommend to my friends are simple.
One is to focus your energy on expanding in witnessing or self-observation.
The other option is to focus your energy on unconditional love. In other words, sharing love and friendship and deepening in just watching and totally accepting that what is.

Beyond the conceptual mind, one enters the realm of expanding awareness and unfolding compassion. To move deeper and deeper into this dimension is leaving the known behind.

To move continuously into the unknown, which is a space inside of us, dissolves the limited suffering creating identification with the concept of the me, the I.

The one who moves continuously into the not-known, will soon no more be found.

One can enter this infinite inner space and disappear in its peacefulness silently forever.

We need continuously to remember that we are here in this life to learn, to discover the paradox of beingness without somebody to claim it.

So please friends remember again and again, what for you are living.

You need to create the purpose of your life yourself.

As the Upanishads say: as a man acts, so does he become. As a man’s desire is, so is his destiny.

Love,
Pan

En aquello en donde enfocamos nuestra energía, es lo que nos sucede.

Cuando uno está preocupado con lo que podemos llamar uno mismo, uno se queda aislado en el concepto de yo o de uno mismo. Uno se vuelve, tal como Alan Watts denomina el estado común de la gente un Ego Encapsulado en Piel. Por tanto desde la antigüedad, los sabios recomiendan enfocarnos en algo más allá el concepto de yo o de mí.

Las dos opciones que yo recomiendo a mis amigos son simples.

Una es enfocar su energía en expandir la auto observación llamado también el testigo.

La otra es dirigir nuestra energía hacia el amor incondicional. O sea, compartir amor y amistad más profundamente solamente observando y aceptando completamente lo que es.

Más allá de la mente conceptual, uno entra en el terreno de una consciencia plena que se expande y una compasión que se despliega. Moverse más y más dentro de esta dimensión es dejar atrás lo conocido.

El movernos continuamente hacia lo desconocido, un espacio que está dentro de nosotros mismos, disuelve el limitado sufrimiento que crea la identificación con mí mismo, con el yo.

El yo que se mueve continuamente hacia lo no conocido pronto no podrá ser percibido más.

Debemos recordar todo el tiempo que estamos aquí en esta vida para aprender, para descubrir la paradoja de ser sin que haya alguien a cargo.

Por tanto amigos, recuerden una y otra vez, aquello para lo que están vivos.
Necesitan crear el propósito de vuestras vidas por Uds. mismos.

Como dicen los Upanishads: Como un hombre actúa, así se vuelve. Como un hombre desea, así es su destino.

Con amor,
Pan

Happy birthday Pan
