My Teaching in a Nutshell


I have called my teaching Meditation as an Art of Life.

My teaching in a nutshell consists of two quotes, three aspects of spiritual practice, the Peter Pan Project, and A Finger Pointing at the Moon.

The two quotes:

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Henry David Thoreau [read more in my Link to Idlers]

I have no view of my own. My critical arguments are simply reduction to absurdity of the views ignorance has created.

Nagarjuna

The three aspects of spiritual practice:

1) Critical thinking (spotting thought distortions created by dualistic unbalance, both in oneself and in others - See my book A Dictionary of Thought Distortions).

2) Investigating the shadow (ignorance, the unconscious, the painbody, the cause of suffering, your own dark side, the ego – see my articles The emotional painbody and why psychotherapy can´t heal it, and Suffering as an entrance to the source)

3) The spiritual practice (going beyond all ideas and images – see my book Sûnyatâ Sutras).

The Peter Pan Project: (see my page The Peter Pan Project)

A Finger Pointing at the Moon:

My teaching is supposed to help people develop their own teaching, to become a light for themselves, where they now happen to be in life. My teaching should therefore not be treated as an authority/conclusion, but only as “a finger pointing at the moon.” Don´t mistake the finger for the Moon.
