A major misunderstanding is to believe that others are guilty for your sufferings, that you suffer because of them. In reality all reactions to the world take place in your inner sphere. It’s not the world that needs to change - instead, your inner reactions need to.
This teaching is about the next step - beyond mindfulness. With the use of awareness in active form you don’t just notice, but are able to influence, directly. For example, you can use your consciousness to release the autopilot of emotions from your system.
Only through the use of awareness can you reach the True Self.
When thinking stops, you become thoughtless. But, what is left? What is that? What is that silence?
Have you noticed how the thinking mind works? We hear something, we comment. See or smell something - again comments. We comment everything, like children. All the time. And you believe it’s normal? Why?
There is only one goal in yoga: to restore a human to their rightful position in the hierarchy of creation and learn to direct life consciously, not to be driven by it. And of course, to reach one’s roots. To reach one’s actual potentiality.
Instead of emotions and the thinking mind, awareness should be placed as primary.
Life is not complicated. We ourselves make it complicated. There are three main reasons for that: untamed and random movement of awareness, automatic thoughts that do not correspond to reality and automatic emotions. These components also make up the list of things to gain freedom from.
When using awareness, that itself is neutral in nature, one experiences neutrality. To be neutral means to be adequate. It means to see events as they are – without glorifying, devaluing, distorting or changing them in any way.
Ignorance – this is the darkness. The goal is to become a seer. Only the one who is aware, a user of consciousness, is able to see.
Change starts from purifying the inner sphere. To release automatic emotions and concepts is the most important activity of all activities.
What happens to your problems, to your issues, if the accompanying emotion ceases to exist?
Your most important step towards stability and happiness lies in cleaning the inner sphere – consciously releasing your subconscious of the problematic reactions you once learned from others.
To be aware of your consciousness means to be in a state that is outside of karma.
If you prolong the process of noticing or become aware of your awareness, you become the user of consciousness. To remain aware, you need to continue using it.
Using awareness forms the foundation – your „eyes open up“. The picture becomes clear. This is why it has also been called enlightenment. This is the light – application of awareness.
The duration of your use of consciousness corresponds to the duration of your freedom. Rest of the time autopilot dominates, a program where everything is pre-set.
When you remain with noticing, the world opens up – you notice sounds, sensations etc. Every moment is a new discovery. As soon as you allow the subconscious to take over, your world collapses into being operated by programs, one after another.
In order to actually improve, there is little use from learning fascinating things or traveling to someplace in hope of experiencing something. Those bad things that you already have don’t disappear, do they? To become free of this weed, you need to outroot it, not just plant other plants next to it.
To discover True Self is the main goal for every person all over the world. To discover True Self means to reach the end of your search. Not just your current search for answers, but your infinite search. This is the ultimate solution, self-realization.
Once an automatic reaction is consciously released, it will never occur again. It’s disturbing influence in your life ceases completely.
You are taught that sufferings are a “normal” part of being human. Actually, they are absolutely abnormal. You can easily release them, be without them. Life without negative emotions is not only possible, but indeed natural for all people.
You only cling to positive emotions, because you don’t have any idea, that exists something even better, than good emotions.
Consciousness has seven active qualities, awareness being one of them. As phenomenas, the qualities of consciousness have nothing to do with emotions or thinking, the mind.
Mind and thinking do not form the cornerstone of wisdom, being smart. Instead, that cornerstone is your consciousness. Use of consciousness is what makes humans smart, a true Homo Sapiens.
The life you live today is already robot-like, directed by automatic reactions - both good and bad ones.
You can change yourself only by practically doing it. Theory and opinions have almost no practical value.
However exquisite the emotions, high or important thoughts, none of them help you to reach awareness nor primordial True Self. The mind can only be of temporary use while purifying the subconscious.
What we consider to be our personality is the set of our most frequent reactions. Personality consists of emotions, thoughts and the resulting behavior. If you know how to change these components, a change in personality immediately follows.

  • A new education about the inner sphere

    The teachings that I share help you to understand yourself better. To make sense of why things in your life are the way they are and how to change that. Through my work with people, I found confirmation to the claim that people are aware of their direct reality only 5% of the time and spend 95% of their lives on autopilot. Thus, a person who is aware is “awake".

    A person living on subconscious autopilot is called to be “asleep” – dreaming with open eyes, captivated by the illusion created by the mind and supported by emotions. This illusion is mistaken for reality. Thus, almost 8 billion people around the globe live an automatic, subconscious life. Everything that I teach aims to help you increase your use of awareness, so that you can awake from this habit driven dream, re-claim control over your life and live it to the fullest.

    Why are your potentials closed?

    Billions of people in the world are not able to do this and realize their goals, because they feel insecure, envious, fearful, sad, worried, proud, disappointed, discontent, offended, anxious, humiliated, and alone or overpowered and have thoughts that accompany these emotions.

    CollapseBelow

    One of the core reasons is that people are taught in a certain way – we have become accustomed to regard our problems as inevitable, a natural part of being human. The other core issue lies in the inability to become free from what was learned, to unlearn. It is a major misunderstanding to consider others faulty of our problems and sufferings. In reality, the inner processes that take place inside you dictate your whole life. People seek temporary alleviation from entertainment, food, alcohol, pills, drugs, spiritual practices, shopping or sports. I have also witnessed that regardless of the measures offered by contemporary psychology and psychiatry, the problems of people keep re-occurring and there are no conclusive solutions. Why not learn to free yourself from these sufferings permanently?

    Accurate and practical knowledge that you can count on

    I teach how to use awareness actively, so that you can independently free yourself from obstacles. These teachings and techniques enable you to release automatic habitual reactions. It is important to discern theory from practical skills and when I teach, I encourage you to investigate and ask questions.

    In my talks and courses, you will find new ways of looking at yourself, other people and things – a whole new paradigm. Using this new paradigm, you will become more independent and free, empowered to shape your life according to your wishes and needs. Soon you will discover that a happy life free from suffering is possible for you too. The end goal of these teachings is to liberate humans from the grip of automatic emotions and thoughts, restoring their real identity, the True Self as the commander. In this way, the autopilot is overcome and the actual homo sapiens sapiens emerges – the Human 2.0  I call these teachings a “silent revolution” – a revolution taking place in the inner world of each individual, fostering personal sustainability. This new paradigm, using awareness as the primary tool, makes it possible to solve almost all the problems humanity faces today.
