El Camino de Santiago Experience – The Way

theway_facebook_text

Flying to cities and sleeping in hotels gives you a luxurious life-style. Walking your way to cities and sleeping on church floors and hostels gives you depth and an inner journey to yourself.

(Post-Camino) Vlad

There are those few things in life that any man or woman has to absolutely do.
One of those bucket-list experiences has to be without a doubt, The Camino de Santiago experience.

Having returned from this long walk just 2 days ago, I will share with you the powerful experiences and challenges that I faced during my time on the Camino.

The Camino de Santiago experience actually translates from Spanish as the Way / Path to Santiago de Compostela (compostela=field of stars).

After a seriously tough time, mentally, spiritually and professionally, the opportunity to do the Camino presented itself.
I decided to try and see if it would help bring clarity into my mind and receive at least a few answers from the big list of questions I have always pondered on.

Being a guy who preferred direct flights to cities and who enjoyed the luxurious comforts of a hotel, the Camino de Santiago Experience was quite a challenge.

With a 12 kilo backpack, a good friend, sports shoes, a bottle of water and determination I embarked on the trip that would change the way I see life.

Desiderata – Or How to Have a Balanced Life

have-a-balanced-lifeMost of us wonder how to have a balanced life.
Life is like a Harp. It is composed of strings hooked up to a frame.
You can think of these strings as the elements that make your life full, complete, just as each string makes the harp a harmonious musical instrument.

You have to tune each of the strings in order to have a harp which sounds harmoniously when you play it.
Same with the important elements in your life. It is extremely important to work on and with the elements which govern your life, if you want to live harmoniously, a soul which sings to you in the most beautiful way possible.

These elements that you plan on tuning can be the following: Relationships, Career, Passions, Hobbies, Money, Friends, Reading, Travelling, Learning, Understanding, Being Spiritual, Thinking outside of the box, Being Aware, Nutrition, Healthy Life&Style etc. You get the point. Some of them are directly presented on Interview with Your Consciousness.

Birdman and the Ego

1213A rainy autumn evening in London, with leaves all over the sidewalk and people in their cars rushing through the rain towards their homes to sit down and sip a warm cup of tea. The tension grows while they await for the traffic light to become green – the colour which will grant them free and unconstrained access towards that final warm destination.

In spite of it all, I decided to leave my house and drive towards the city centre. What better night in London then a rainy one where you can enjoy the company of friends at an old-school cinema where Jack the Ripper roamed ages ago – Whitechapel.

All I Am Is A Cacophony of Memetic Engineering

engineerfacebookEverything that composes that which I believe myself to be;
a cacophony of memetic imagery;
archetypes, conditioning, programming;
of words, utterances and sounds;
vibrations and frequencies;
a dazzling array of hues and variations of light –
All of these things are distractions;
A lotus eater machine designed to capture my attention;
stealing my focus away towards some grand, fascinating illusion.

Daily Practices for a Spiritual Life

copypicc

A great philosopher once said: “The endeavour to persist in its own being is the essence of the individual thing.” But when the day comes that the mind and body will be separated… what will happen to the soul?

As promised in my previous article, The Spiritual Path in Modern Times, I have gathered and put together a list of essential daily practices for a Spiritual Life to come in handy in these crazy yet interesting times we are living in.

There is no need to crowd your mind up by trying to incorporate all of them at the same time in your day to day life.
Start with a few, then slowly add more from the list and eventually you will be able to alternate these practices to give you the best combination for the best results.

These are gathered from various Buddhist and Spiritual books with the aim of making every living situation part of your spiritual practice.

You can be living the spiritual practice, instead of just doing it by following the next list of “to-do” activities, with details on how to do them easily found on Interview with Your Consciousness articles:

The Spiritual Path in Modern Times

meddd

What did the Dalai Lama say to the New York hot dog vendor?
“Make me one with everything.”

In a world where every second counts in order to either make money, consume something or stare at your phone, you find yourself wondering what is all of this for? Is this true happiness or am I just painting a rotten wall for the time being?

How many of you have ever wondered what does it take to attain a certain state which grants you constant and deep happiness, makes you less prone to outside suffering and allows you to realise we are all part of something bigger?

Many dwell on the perfect situation where they can start living the life the way it was meant to. The life which follows the spiritual path.

However, we all live in a perpetual active world around us where things always poke at us and take all of our time.
This would surely make one beg the question:

The Journey Ahead

Road Ahead

I have always considered that there is something out there that we have either been estranged from or have just but abandoned the truth and true meaning of our brief but exciting trip on Earth.

There has always been this foreign object in the eye-like feeling since I was young. Herman Meville in Moby Dick said: “As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts” a feeling that he deeply craved to satisfy, just as the majority of us find ourselves contemplating over and over in our daily lives.
