Dromen in de Indiase opvattingen

Het onderzoek naar het “veld van bewustzijn” mag in ons deel van de wereld nog in de kinderschoenen staan, de Indiase wetenschap beschikt al vele eeuwen over gedetailleerde en diepgaande kennis over de verschillende bewustzijnstoestanden. Ook over dromen en slapen bieden de oeroude Indiase bewustzijns- en gezondheidswetenschappen uitvoerige informatie. Continue reading “Dromen in de Indiase opvattingen”

My unneccessary life (hi)story

You don’t need to read this.

  • This body-mind system was born as the grandson of a policeman, son of a navy officer and navy woman. Tried to follow their paths after high school: police and military training. Immediate challenge then: how to get out of those environments a.s.a.p… Never had a “normal” job. Worked as Transcendental Meditation teacher, pr-officer, freelance journalist, writer, editor, jobless jobhunter, vocational astrologer, alternative career counselor, improvising clown in children’s hospitals, teacher of  kung/qigong/mindful movement.
  • Survived childhood diseases, warts, pimples, ticks, broken wrist, school classes, furuncles, falls from judo/bikes/motorcycle, circumcision, weird diagnoses (restless legs syndrome, bursitis, glandular fever, cluster headache, etc.), mosquitos, out-of-body experiences, computer crashes, love stories and divorces. Plus more than 20 relocations (in The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Switzerland).
  • Don’t have a car, but do have a public transportation discount card, folding bike without a saddle, scooter (kickbike) with large wheels, sporty recumbent trike, backpacks, healthy legs, and several pairs of barefoot shoes, some with 5 toes.
  • What did I want most, from the time as a little boy to very late adult – dreaming, climbing trees, playing Robin Hood in the wood, canoeing at East Sea, fighting pirates/robbers/dragons, riding a wooden horse and old motorbike, staring over the East Sea/North Sea/Atlantic, clowning around? To be free. Really. Being. Free.
  • In spite of (or after) all that: the essence, awareness, is still exactly the same as it always was. Same timelessness, same space, same Here Now.

So the whole story looks like a joke.

Ommmm.
