Hi :slight_smile:
I feel honoured to have won the top prize in the recent essay contest. :partying_face:

I am convinced that it will mobilize me to write more articles - if I find a topic that will bring obvious benefits to all members of the community. :sunglasses:

I would like to emphasize that this is how I felt while writing the last article: it is a valuable piece. What’s in there: that’s how I learn every day. It seems to me that this is the best testimony because it is simply my experience.

The key is to FEEL what I mean in this essay. It doesn’t matter if what I wrote down there makes logical sense. Because the mind is full of paradoxes. No permanent and uniform system of action can lead to success in the long run! Only through the presence and a feeling of what is to be applied right now - here and now, moment to moment - can authentic development be possible. It’s not a belief system, it is practice…



Congratulations. Good to see you that you are still very much active here! I am logging in after almost a year!


Great to hear from you again, @jithins123 ! :slight_smile:
