The Good Ritual

What constitutes the concrete appearance of a ‘good ritual’? According to me, the answer lies more in the deeper ‘why’ and in the deeper ‘how’ of the ‘what’ than in the ‘what’ itself. [please first read: ‘Rituals’] In religion(s), rituals mostly grow quite organically. What if one would want to ‘make’ a new ritual to Read the full article…

A Symbol Is Always YOU

Symbolism is always vertical, a communication between conceptual and subconceptual. In this sense, it is always about YOU. [see also: ‘Symbolism lost. Symbolism regained.’] ‘Vertical’? As in this drawing, showing the difference between an analogy (concept-to-concept) and a symbol: Eventually, it’s about you as a total person, body and mind, conceptual [see: ‘About Concepts’] and Read the full article…

Imagine: an AURELIS Future

The best way to Read the full article…

Inner Dissociation is NEVER OK!

According to me, one can appropriately say that dissociation – that is: the absence of integration – is THE cause of human-concocted ‘evil’. [see: ‘Cause of All Suffering: Dissociation’] So, it’s never OK to say ‘OK’ to this. There is a responsibility of any well-thinking human being to oppose dissociation. Mind: not opposing ‘dissociated people’ Read the full article…

A Leader Should Do What He Likes

A Problem with ZEN

Nearing the end of WW-II, Zen was a substantial driving force behind the kamikaze: suicide pilots who in droves rammed into the US Army. (There is of course not one kind of ‘meditation’. There are many, which are very different from each other.) 7500 kamikaze pilots flying towards death and destruction Doesn’t sound very ‘Zen’? Read the full article…

No Rationality without Poetry

Rationality without poetry (‘depth’) is meaningless. Moreover: it’s not even rational. Thus, better call it ‘rationality’ (between brackets). [see: ‘AURELIS USP: ‘100% Rationality, 100% Depth’] Rationality is not only about concepts Of course, conceptual thinking is of huge importance. No doubt. However, through correct conceptual thinking, one can arrive at its own limits: 100% conceptual Read the full article…

Spiraling inwards Morality: the relief of suffering. [see: ‘Morality Is the Relief of Suffering’] Which is related to why people do what they do, their motivation.

Symptom = Problem?

A ‘symptom’ is primordially just an issue that you give some of your attention to. It only becomes a ‘symptom’ when you experience it as such. The reason why we see a psycho-somatic symptom as a problem is because we see it as some kind of entity that doesn’t really belong to who we are. Read the full article…

An Exercise in Stressional Intelligence

Stressional Intelligence is how to rationally deal with stress in deep respect to yourself. Some principles are always applicable. This exercise may show so. Nature gave our ancestors a continual amount of stress. Thus, we are basically made to function with stress. We all need it, physically and mentally, in diverse amounts.
