    11 Aspects of Practical Spiritual Science

    Practical spiritual science deals with several aspects, which are all different, yet nonetheless connected. In this blog post, we will discuss motif, trust, trials, refinement, transformation, strength, pride, reward, meditation, altruism, solidarity, etc. Motif The right motive for seeking self-insight is about focusing on insight and not on yourself. Self-insight is essential, but it is only due to the knowledge one can acquire, and it has nothing to do with one’s self. One must seek self-insight from devotion to insight and understanding, and the self-insight will eventually become a reward in itself. If one becomes impatient, it indicates that the person works for reward and not for devotion, and it…

    The Death of Galileo

    The famous Italian astronomer and physicist Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was trialed and convicted in 1633 for publishing his evidence that supported the Copernican theory that the Earth revolves around the Sun. His research was instantly criticized by the Catholic Church for going against the established scripture that places Earth and not the Sun at the center of the universe. Galileo was found “vehemently suspect of heresy” for his heliocentric views and was required to “abjure, curse and detest” his opinions. He was sentenced to house arrest, where he remained for the rest of his life and his offending texts were banned. What can we learn from this piece of history?…

    What is the cause of all your problems?

    Maybe you think that’s a good question and let it marinate in your head for a while … First something else: First I’ll take you back in time, 110 years back in time. In physics, there was nothing to discover at the beginning of 1900. As they called it, it was almost a closed science. There were still a few questions unanswered, but most were answered. Newton had done his best and thanks to Newton we can calculate a lot of things. We had a model for gravity, the speed of matter and we could calculate that. So ready..? But the light was slightly different. That goes very quickly, and…

    Talking to a Therapist VS. Talking to A Friend

    During a discussion forum on psychology, was asked to post the question in the title, and it made me stop for a moment. There is a question that I’ve already come across in the past. “Why do we need to go and pay a hundred dollars a psychologist if you can sit with a friend over a beer?” Or the stereotype you often hear –  “Those who go to a psychologist, have no friends to speak to.” Now, for me personally the answer was pretty obvious, but when it was asked, at the moment I stopped and tried to think about it again, especially to formulate my answer more clearly.…

    How to Live and Cope with Deep Atelphobia

    Atelophobia is the fear of not being good enough or imperfection. It is classified as an anxiety disorder that can affect relationships and makes the afflicted person feel like everything they do is wrong. We are not half the person we wish we were. Don’t worry. You can admit it. You secretly wish your were more than just a waste of space in debt. I thought that my life was crap, because I always I felt I wasn’t enough. Just like this, “I am not enough” is the sentence I used to repeat to myself, until it was encoded in my DNA. I honestly believed in the uniqueness of my…

    Characteristics of the successful people

    Do successful people have specific characteristics? What makes successful people achieve their goals? We all look for ways to become successful, yet many believe that it is difficult to achieve success. Some possess naturally the characteristics that the successful people have while others learn to acquire those attributes. There are many characteristics that successful people have, however, there are four major ones. 1. Having clear plan and commitment If you don’t have a clear plan toward a specific goal and if you are not committed then you will never reach your goals. You first have to know what you want, think of a plan and the time you expect to…

    Reach Your Goals More Effectively by Taking out A Step or Two

    Most of us tend to do the same things when we are trying to reach our goals. We start by making a plan that covers the ideas and steps on how to reach our goal and then we begin moving along the steps of the plan. Most likely your ultimate plan looks something like this: Step 1 – Do the work that is absolutely needed to reach the goal. Step 2 – Do some unnecessary work that has nothing to do with goal but takes up time and seems important. Step 3 – Do some more work that is absolutely needed to reach the goal. Step 4 – Accomplish goal.…

    Think Success

    Thinking successfully isn’t just a case of sitting on your toilet or whatever epiphany chamber you use and straining your mind to see yourself as successful. The Secret promised this and more, but if we are all honest with ourselves this would take a lot of effort to achieve. I’m not saying it wouldn’t work, but as I said requires quite a substantial effort as The Secret relies heavily on faith. There is no question that thoughts or ideas do have substance or can affect matter. On September the 11th 2001 the world watch as thousands of people were slain by an unforgivable act of violence, the interesting thing is…

    Charisma – A Magnetic Force

    In one sentence can you describe the term charisma? I find it amusing to hear the many different responses to that question. When asked to define this characteristic most people have their own version of its meaning. We usually say things like “charming”, “popular”, “good looking”, or influential to describe its definition. I’ve even heard some describe it as this mystical element that dwells within the innermost nature of only a “selected” few. I’ve always enjoyed this topic because it challenges the person to look deeper than the abstract meanings that are typically the first to pop into the mind when the word is mentioned. So I will ask you…
