Dear friends and visitors,
The overarching theme of the Living Room is ” How to live a life based on Truth”
This blog exists since 2010 and reflects my own journey, as well as featuring the contributions of many souls that I met along the way. What an exciting, surprising and fulfilling time it has been and now, almost 4 years and hundreds of postings later, I can honestly say – what a trip and we have not seen anything yet !
So come in and take a look around. You will find a comfy sofa to sit on and chat with friends, a cosy armchair to tell your story, an inviting window seat for contemplation and a pretty mirror for reflections. There are books, magazines, music and many other items to be found on the coffee table and you can withdraw to the kitchen, everybody’s favorite place;
Check out the themes and different collections, like “Listening to Orpheus” or ” Means of Life”, or ” Michaela on Medicine”, or enjoy the Original Poetry.
Please comment and share your own thoughts and experiences. As always, if you have a an idea, perhaps a subject that raised your interest or a question you wish to explore, and of course if you would like to contribute, please send me an email.
Enjoy the Living Room, share with your friends and return any time you like !
What is it to be a pioneer of the New Earth? For myself it’s rather easy. It’s putting yourself out there, bringing the inner realization to an outer actionable set of events. Some may say that our inner realization will guide us and be our truth, however if that Truth is a continued inner search and realization then it can become an intangible truth. I am one that believes in inner realization brings forth a real and unmistakable set of tangible actions that reach beyond one’s own self to our neighbors, community and to life here and elsewhere.
The Dalai Lama said is well this when he stated: “Whatever path our activity takes, if our intention is to make ourselves useful to others, there is a good chance our conduct will be useful; whereas activities generally considered to be good, such as the practice of religion, risk causing more harm than good if they are not motivated by a desire to help our fellow beings.”
This direction is not a new or old belief; it is a cultivation of our inner realization to our outer conduct. It is so simple to bring back the belief that we are a community, we are one with our surroundings and we must be good stewards of this current creation.
I hope I didn’t get off topic.
It’s been a while, I hope you’re doing well Michaela!
Nice to “see” you here, Randy. You are right, community seems to be the common denominator.
I love that your blog is about how to live a life based on truth…. and the exploration of what that might mean. I have a hunch I need to explore some of your posts. Glad I found you!
Welcome Amy !
I love this topic Michaela, I have also been astonished at how quickly things are changing socially, politically, financially, technically all over the world.
It is important to examine our actions and question why do we do certain things – is it habit, is it what we believe, is it for the benefit of all. People are having more important and deep conversations, even though some would be terrified of such things in the recent past. I feel that many people that have no knowledge of awakening to the truth are conscious of a shift in the world around them.
