“What we do is to snap the brain out of it”: that is a frequent used quote by Cesar Millan, the dogwhisperer.

I sat with that quote for somehow I felt there was something so deep and true in it. “We snap the brain out of it, before it escalates; before it goes to the red zone”. The red zone is most of the time the state in which the dog attacks and can not be controled any longer.

I began translating this quote to what I do with people, when they come to me for help. In most cases the people who come to me, want help with the on going thoughtstream in their head. They feel stressed and often they suffer from burnout symptoms.

What could be the case is this.
The brain receives impulses and produces thoughts and the mind, as identified consciousness, attaches to those thoughts and takes them for real. When the mind  is stopped in that identifying process by being confronted it with the reality of the moment, the “mind is snapped out of it”. The mind has this identifying habit and is conditioned to do so for thousands of years. It is not personal. It comes with the human species. So when we confront the mind with itself and when we hold up the mirror so the mind can see itself, then it is possible that the mind stops and “is snapped out of it”.

Finding the absolute truth in ourselves by asking ourselves if it is true what we believe and waiting for the heart, intuition, cosmic intelligence, or whatever, to answer from the depth of our being, stops the identifying process. And when we do that often enough, the mind will gradually get used to the conditioning of investigating thoughts , before believing thoughts.

Cesar Millan is the whisperer for dogs. We can all be the whisperer for people. Holding up the mirror, asking if it is true, is what we can do. It takes time to get used to this new way of looking at our thoughts. I think the time is right to dive in the depths that are waiting inside of us. And what I found is that that depth has no ending …

Blessing on the journey into yourself; the journey without end and without distance …


When Wisdom touches you,
receives you,
nurtures you,
and welcomes you
in her arms of Light

Confusion will melt,
the darkness,
the pain

And words can be heard
and be held
in the infinite wisdom
that you always are …

Word or World?

When there is a word
there is a world

No words, no world

When there is the I
there is a world:
the I experiencing the world

No I, no world

The world comes and goes
Everything that comes and goes
is not real

What is real, is what doesn’t come or go
What is it that doesn’t come or go?

When you have found the answer in you
you have found You …


When there is no “I” who listens
there is no “I” who reacts
Then there is only: listening

What a precious enormous gift
to the other
to yourself

Deep listening is the kind of listening that can help relieve the suffering of another person. You can call it compassionate listening. You listen with only one purpose: to help him or her to empty his heart. Even if he says things that are full of wrong perceptions, full of bitterness, you are still capable of continuing to listen with compassion. Because you know that listening like that, you give that person a chance to suffer less. If you want to help him to correct his perception, you wait for another time. For now, you don’t interrupt. You don’t argue. If you do, he loses his chance. You just listen with compassion and help him to suffer less. One hour like that can bring transformation and healing.

How can you not do
what you are doing
in this moment?

How could you not do
what you did
in the past?

How did you learn
of what you did
in the past?

How does what you did
in the past
shape your future?

We do what we do. We fall and stand up and will probably do it differently the next time. Falling down is not bad and getting up is not good. Falling is falling and getting up is getting up. Falling can only exist because of getting up. Getting up only exists because of falling down.

You can not do only the getting up because then falling down would not exist. The one is there and the other is there. That is called: duality. This is not good or bad and that is not good or bad. Both are polarities on the line that binds them together. When does falling down becomes getting up? And when does getting up becomes falling down?

Form and emptiness, love and fear, presence and absence: the one exists thanks to the other and the other exists thanks to the one. Duality is like a song; sung for the One. The One that has no opposite. In That everything exists. And That has no name …


Nothing happens to me
nothing ever happened to me
nothing will ever happen to me

All that is happening
is happening, has happened and will happen
to the body-mind mechanism
with a name, a sexe, a bankaccount, and so on

That ultimate understanding
gives peace and joy and rest …

Thank you

Thank you Östergötland

To say thank you to someone, for whatever reason, can be difficult sometimes. Saying thank you, and letting the energy of it sink deeply in you, can be an enormous event.

Thank you makes you modest and humble in the positive sense of those words. Thank you goes beyond ego. Thank you, spoken in soft and deep connection with yourself, lets openess surface. The sensation of thank you is this openess. And this openess, connection, love, truth, is what you feel in the body. And that is who you are, in essence.

You are connection, love, openess, truth. You are that Thank you. Living anything but Thank you, hurts.

Thank you trees
thank you air, sun, clouds,
thank you insects, people,
thank you animals, plants, suns,
thank you birth and death
thank you Thank you …

I write
what you already know

You read
the words that live in you
since the beginning

I didn’t come to teach you

The writing and the reading
happen at the same time

The writer is the reader
The reader is the writer

Happening at the same time
in You …
