"So the mirrow refletion gives insight about my self and the other... In other words the mirror is helping to make the connection, to develop compassion, to vanish the concept of self and other....?"

It all started with some password troubles... Wednesday some technical support wil arrive at Eleusis. Till then they will stay without the internet. 

STILL WITHOUT INTERNET

At the moment David and Adam are still without the internet. They bought a new modem but unfortunate this is not working either. I think that soon some help from Oasis (Annette and Patrick) will arrive. So for the moment no daily teachings...

GROUP

Posted by David Brazier on January 11, 2019 at 9:43 2 Comments

I’ve always been interested in groupwork. Recently I’ve been facilitating a rather challenging group. It includes an older man who is enjoying his retirement, an outdoor type who does not say so much but clearly regards the other members as wimps, a writer who has an irritating obsession with etymology, one I think of as the wanderer whose life problem seems to be that of never having learnt to settle down, who tells endless entertaining stories of travels, love affairs and so on, and I was…

I was to take a local plane to Montreal then fly to Paris and on to Bilbao in Spain with Air France, due to arrive at nine in the morning local time the following day. F would meet me in Spain and take me back to stay with him in a village near Vittoria.…

MY REAL LIFE

Posted by David Brazier on December 8, 2018 at 15:00 4 Comments

I'd like to try to say something about real life, which is the only thing that is really interesting.

I have been a bookworm ever since I learnt to read, which was not until I was seven years old. By that time I had already had important spiritual experiences. I was a rather odd child. Many ideas went through my head that tended to set me apart from other children.
