One of my favorite bands from Munich 🙂

A lecture on why we need meaning in life and how it relates to our psychological needs. As always: When I am looking for answers – Alan Watts is there to offer his wisdom 🙂

Alan Wilson Watts was born in Chislehurst, Kent, England on January 6th in 1915. To celebrate my beloved teacher I am sharing one of my favorite videos of his – “Work As Play”. Enjoy!

What is freedom? In this lecture Swami Tattvavidananda Saraswathi explains the difference between freedom and choices. He elaborates on Yama and Niyama, Ahimsa and other aspects of Yoga.

I love this – #pretty things make me happy!

In his last interview Maurice Sendak, famous illustrator and children’s book author (“Where the wild things are”) reflects on life and the love for his work. Note to myself: I need to get a dog when I grow up.

Cloudy Friday is the perfect day to listen to some Alan Watts. He elaborates about the true meaning of life and what life’s purpose is. In the second part of this lecture he talks to a group of psychologists about philosophical problems in therapy  – one of my favortie lectures.

Ram Dass interviews Thich Nhat Hanh at State of the Wold forum. Thich Nhat Hanh talks about using mindfulness to take tender loving care of our anger. Being aware and mindful of our breathing helps us to take good care of our emotions. Our anger is like a flower that needs the sunshine of our mindfulness. May you get well soon Thich Nhat Hanh!

Thomas Merton

The saints are what they are, not because their sanctity make them admirable to others, but because the gift of sainthood makes it possible for them to admire everybody else. Thomas Merton

 

One of the most entertaining and at the same time uplifting stories I’ve heard in a long time. The new documentary “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon” tells the story of a remarkable person. GO SEE IT! You will be amazed from beginning to end. I love love love this movie so much. You will be entertained and learn something at the same time. Shep Gordon conducted his entire life by doing compassionate business. I am a real pessimist at times, or as I like to refer to it, a realist. But this documentary made me feel that good things do happen to good people. Check out the trailer 🙂
