Karmic Affinities or Elective Affinities?

Edited by Marco Ferrini

There are undoubtedly karmic affinities that determine relationships between people, but they are not always positive per se. Sometimes karmic affinities that link people to each other increase the negative aspects in each person.

Sometimes a healthy complementarity that integrates and fills in the gaps between the two, is preferable to a similar character identity, perception and attitude that emphasize the reciprocal defects.

From the Book: Freedom from Loneliness and Suffering

One of the most serious and urgent lingering problems in our society is isolation, neglect, loneliness. We will examine this subject in the light of the wisdom of the Vedas, a knowledge that is thousands of years old and is not exclusive heritage of India but rather belongs to the entire human kind, just like the sun is not Eastern or Western: it is the sun.

From Eros to Love

From Eros to Love

From the Book: From Eros to Love

In order to live love it is important to understand what it is, and even more to be able to distinguish it from its counterfeits. We live to give and receive love. Every time we pollute this feeling, we cheat others, we cheat ourselves; every time we betray, we betray ourselves; every time we lie, we are lying to ourselves. An individual may possess the entire world, but if he doesn't have good relationships, he remains miserable.

Love and Life

Love and LifeEdited by Marco Ferrini

Throughout millennia, people have wondered on the goal of life, the meaning of love, death, pain. We have all personally experienced that lack of love makes one lose enthusiasm for existence, and gives rise to personality disorders and pathologies, even serious ones. Those leading a suffering life, in a state of perennial conflict, oppressed by negative feelings, have often not comprehended the global importance of the feeling of love.

To be respectful

To be respectfulEdited by Marco Ferrini

A person who has started the journey on the path of self-realization is at the very least respectful to all beings. Respect is the basis of trust and love and without an attitude that is at least respectful we cannot build anything in life. Being respectful does not mean paying homage here and there, or behaving in reverent or obsequious way; it rather means being able to listen and to recognize the value, giving the proper consideration to what we are told: thoughts, words, opinions of others, without prejudice, without expecting to dominate and to be always right.

Evolution towards Love

Evolution towards LoveEdited by Marco Ferrini

Human beings are much more than the physical body in which they live and travel. Only some psychophysical components fall under our sensorial observation and make up our sole empirical experience. Vedanta, Yoga and other works of Indovedic tradition describe the spiritual essence of the being (atman) and its two macrostructures: mental and physical, which together represent the instruments for the atman to operate in the world.

To be Merciful

Edited by Marco Ferrini

Compassion (kripa) is the first virtue mentioned by Shri Caitanya to Sanatana Gosvami, and meaningfully so, because it is probably the most important. In fact the genuine spiritual researcher, the sadhu, is by definition kripalu, merciful. From the psychological point of view, what does it mean being merciful? It means being benevolently disposed towards all living entities, willing to give everyone a benefit of a higher nature.

Who are we?

Who are we?

From the Book: Freedom from Loneliness and Suffering

The destiny of the body, with all its psychic and chemical aggregates, does not have the same nature, history and result of the destiny of the spiritual being. The spiritual being can also profit from living in a physical body, but he must be deeply aware of his superior nature (atman) to avoid distortions and improper identifications, which bring illusions, delusions and disillusionments.

From the Book: Freedom from Loneliness and Suffering

The topic that we will discuss today has a great anthropological value: it is the concept of complete health, called holistic health. In spite of the general economic well being in the industrialized world and the growing technological development of modern society, the individuals still suffer from a kind of bewilderment creating deep discomfort, fear, loneliness and suffering.

The Self: Center of all our psychic functions

Art-11

Edited by Marco Ferrini

From the Book: Karma and Reincarnation

A wise man does not deny impulses, emotions or passions, but he tries to study and measure them as phenomena. In order to do this he must remain detached, because if he allows himself to be swept away, he becomes trapped into them and part of them.
