Where are you now if not lodge within my memory? You are no longer here yet your wisdom flows through my veins If I close my eyes, I can still hear your laughter and footsteps Yet the crude reality remains that you are gone To place that is not a place But an ethereal world…… Continue reading Bloodlines

Healing with Intelligence and Compassion
I have often written on the danger of falling for extremes; in our desperation to run away from one issue we tend to readily embrace any solution no matter how drastic. In the wide spectrum of time, it wasn’t too long ago when patients with mental illness and disorders were treated like the pariah of…… Continue reading Healing with Intelligence and Compassion
Tantra: Educating Ourselves on Sexual Penetration
What I am writing here is based on my piece “Reflections: Pornography…the Silent Killer” and on the teachings of Osho; teachings which have inspired the style and techniques used by mentors and sexual educators such as Diana Richardson and Barry Long among others. Unlike pornography would like us to believe, mindless thrusting does nothing for…… Continue reading Tantra: Educating Ourselves on Sexual Penetration
Reflections: Pornography…The Silent Killer
Today I reflected about a gentleman I have been working with and what he said to me after our last counselling session. Although him and I had seen each other over the years at a few events organized by acquaintances, we almost never had the opportunity to have a proper conversation–partly because I don’t often…… Continue reading Reflections: Pornography…The Silent Killer
Reflections: Best Friend
Tonight was a mix of sadness and joy, nightmares and dreams. I woke up as the nightingale was singing and the earth below us broke in two; no matter how much I tried to hold on to your hand, soon you were gone and I was left behind. I woke feeling cold from my own…… Continue reading Reflections: Best Friend

We are not taught that it is our birthright; instead we are left with this uneasy feeling that we have to earn it. Neither are we taught happiness is an…… Continue reading Happiness or Passion?
Intellect or Blind Faith?: Understanding Illumination
When it comes to spirituality, faith or occultism, it seems the same rule applies: in order to know God, divinity or transcendental reality, it is necessary to put aside the mind and live the experience; only through a special state of consciousness it is possible to connect with it. The above is excellent advise, except…… Continue reading Intellect or Blind Faith?: Understanding Illumination
Tantra: Uniqueness as a Path to Awakening
So many times we hear the saying “I am awake” as a way to refer to us as more illuminated, saintly, holy…but do we really know what it is that we are saying? or have we; like many so called masters; fallen pray to the spiritual ego and the false idea of dissolving the ego….…… Continue reading Tantra: Uniqueness as a Path to Awakening
The Warrior Spirit
The following is based on Sacred Shamanic teachings, which I thought would be good to share, as more often than not, we find ourselves questioning our path. At the end of the day, we don’t know anything for sure, this real uncertainty may be the reason why we often seek refuge in religion, spirituality, magick,…… Continue reading The Warrior Spirit
Balance: Can The Law Go Too Far?
Not too long ago there was yet another shooting in the US at an elementary school; that particular horrendous event gave rise to the debate about gun control. I was vocal about my dislike for the low regulations for gun control (not everywhere of course, there are countries with far better regulations than others), this…… Continue reading Balance: Can The Law Go Too Far?
