The Forgotten Language

Feeling is the language, the forgotten language. If you understand feeling, you understand the whole. lt is said of Lukman, one of the wisest men ever born — he is the founder of Yunani medicine — that he would go to plants, to bushes and trees, sit there, feel them,...

Think again

I have a suspicion that wherever anger is suppressed too much, people have teeth trouble. Their teeth go wrong because there is too much energy and it is never released. And anybody who suppresses anger will eat more; angry people will always eat more because the teeth need some...

Overwhelmed?

Often a feeling that I can’t describe fills my heart and my whole being. It is there in deep love — but a similar feeling also comes up in fear, anguish, pain, helplessness and frustration. There is certainly something very similar in very different emotions: the overwhelmingness. It may be...

You Are Responsible
