Being Yourself

by Shervin on October 21, 2018

You have heard the statement that “I want to be myself”. What does it really mean? For some, it simply means do not want to be like person X or under control of person X. Such a reaction is natural and common. It is like going to a restaurant to order a meal and you […]

Your Life Is Precious

by Shervin on September 23, 2018

You have heard that life is precious and we need to appreciate it. But why, if most of the time we feel less than great about our lives. It is because we have taken many things for granted.

Safeguard Your Sanctuary

by Shervin on August 26, 2018

Would you allow bugs to crawl into your room every morning? I would assume most people you would say, no! Your room and home is your sanctuary. The bugs may disturb your peace of mind. Many times, out of habit, we allow fear and anxiety in – without even being aware of them. We allow […]

In my experience, steps required to reduce our suffering and allowing more joy in our lives are to feel our emotions and let go of our stories that created those emotions! What do I mean by this? If you feel sad, feel your sadness. Do not go around repeatedly telling yourself or others that “you […]

On Authenticity

by Shervin on June 18, 2018

The first time I heard about being authentic, I thought it was a tactic to find faults with someone! Over time I have realized being authentic is a natural inner desire and is the home where we love to return to. Being authentic is an inside job and is about living from heart while discovering […]

You Matter!

by Shervin on June 4, 2018

One of the most read popular blogs in the past ten years is titled “You matter”. Why this subject is so popular? I think deep down we know our presence matters and makes a difference. However sometimes our mind and our environment creates doubt within us and convince us otherwise. We are sometimes negligent to […]

by Shervin on April 8, 2018

Have you wondered why so many mystics welcome grief and hardships? What one gains from welcoming them? Are they crazy? Not so. I think there are two important factors to consider: 1- Practicing surrender Surrender shuts off our mind in picking, choosing and judging and allowing us to experience life. This applies in both expanding (i.e. […]

What are you holding on?

by Shervin on March 26, 2018

When we hold to an emotion by avoiding fully feeling it and do not process it, we lose clarity of our heart, mind and action. You may have seen someone that was hurt by unfairness and they themselves are acting unfairly to others. You may have seen someone who hates being judged and themselves are very judging of others. You […]

by Shervin on January 14, 2018

How can we survive and thrive the chaos around us? We can do it by raising our vibration, by being in the present and by focusing on desired outcomes. Look at the following statements that all maybe true (yet they have low vibrations): I am cold; I should have saved more money; it is Joe’s […]

Resistance to Feel

by Shervin on December 18, 2017

Do you have resistance to doing very simple things such as replying to an email, talking to a stranger, watching your own speech video or asking to be treated properly? I have realized that mostly when we have a resistance, it is avoidance of “negative” feeling such as sadness, anger, rejection, etc. It goes like […]

Chasing A Butterfly

by Shervin on December 3, 2017

I do photography and I am very fortunate in taking pictures of butterflies close up. How do I do it? I do not chase the butterflies. I find a place near flowers, relax and sit without any expectation or thoughts. Then the butterfly appears and lands near me for a picture. If I am tense […]
