HANS WOLFGANG...can you please give some insight?



  • I do feel the importance of these things - I always have had a strong sense of these in my life... but it is truthfully balanced with practical needs and desires in this tactical existence... I appreciate the reminder - to help me remember the most important things... i hope you are well and peaceful and happy too... : )



  • So, I keep reading about this astrological cross taking place between Jupiter, Pluto, Neptune and Uranus (?). I'm just curious if my vague unease is intellectual from reading about this stuff or will I experience an upheaval during this time too? And I will, will it be a manageable upheaval and all my people stay safe and sound? (Sometimes I think I should stop reading all of the astro stuff!) How are you doing Hans?



  • oops - I guess it's pluto jupiter and mars...



  • Hello Hanswolfgang, its me uullee! Missed you, but was going through my own stuff and working on my parallels. But I am once again at a loss for the guys in my life.. If you could just give me some insight on the player ( who keeps coming back) long distance( he has my heart) and the lost puppy (who followed me home ) Yes, letting go and working through the energies has brought me into this! But first i must mention I am finally in love with myself. Yea and have accepted my challenge that I chose.

    Thanks, Hans Hope all is well!



  • firehorsecrab,

    you will experience an upheaval during this time too.

    Will all my people stay safe and sound? Yes, certainly.

    How are you doing Hans? I am reading and learning while walking on my way.

    You have to go in absolute aloneness. Just the very

    idea of being totally nothing brings a shower of

    flowers. Just being alone, utterly alone, brings such a

    fresh breeze, such fragrance. But the experience is a

    million times more than you can conceive of with the

    mind.



  • uullee,

    give me some insight on the player ( who keeps coming back) long distance( he has my heart) and the lost puppy (who followed me home 😞 nervously shaking his leg shows his irresistible urge to advance. Misfortune if he does. Good fortune if he doesn't.

    You hover between the finite and the infinite. The real strength is the strength of the meek, the power of the humble.



  • That is reassuring and opening too... I can tell I am working through some of my old fears and walls this year - it has been truly painful at times, but so far, very good - all of it - I believe you about aloneness, and I get a little time on my own occasionally.... I do love those moments very much - and I love my people very much too!! What are you reading? 😉



  • firehorsecrab,

    What are you reading? "The New Dawn" (A many-faceted series of talks in which Osho dismantles a great variety of questions from seekers)

    If you had asked Mahavira, "Is there a God?" he would

    have said, "Yes -- but that is my first statement. The

    second, no; that is my second statement. And the third,

    yes and no both; that is my third statement." And he

    would make seven statements, and each statement would

    start with 'perhaps': perhaps yes, perhaps no, perhaps

    both, perhaps both not, and so on, so forth. Sevenfold

    logic!



  • Wow... I googled it and found a bit about it, including this excerpt:

    Insecurity keeps people fresh, alive, adventurous - knowing that things can be changed. Even without their changing them, they are going to be changed. So there is great scope for change, for transformation.

    An ancient saying is, "The authentic man is one whom the sunrise never finds where the sunset leaves him"; or, "where the sunrise leaves him, the sunset never finds him there." He is always on the move, he is a flow he is not a dirty pond going nowhere.

    But the whole training of our minds is such that we are made afraid of insecurity, and our whole life we are trying for safety. Financially, politically, religiously - in every dimension we want to be secure. But security means death, a living death. It means tomorrow will be simply a repetition of today, and today is a repetition of yesterday."

    This is so perfect for my security seeking side... I feel like this sums up the dichotomy of my soul - search after financial comfort, love comfort and yet always a restlessness inside of me that wants to break away and experience newness and exploration. Most often the stable side wins out and I do love my life and see the many good things that come from stabililty. So maybe there is a way to join these: have a life of stable home for children and good work (after schooling - in nursing), my amazing husband and best friend who really does love unconditionally and also shares a little of my restlessness... can we have stability of a life well-lived and built coupled with that freedom, by embracing insecurity and the possibilities/potentialities it holds? Nice... thank you for telling me what you're reading. It would be so fun to cross paths someday and talk for hours on a park bench under a shade tree, wouldn't it? : )



  • Hi Hans,

    Wie geht's?

    Können Sie mir helfen?

    Thats all I know Hans, My partner's parents are German, so my partner teaches me some words, that I can say...

    I hope I spelt them right, I had to go on to a site for the correct spelling...

    I still remember your response to me, from another thread of yours

    "you said to me"

    "Thank you shatz,"

    "let flowers of joy and meditation open in your heart."

    I was hoping if you have time, this is not an emergency if could allow me to talk for a bit.

    I have grown so much thee past few months, and being almost 50 this month on the 10th..I know its not the age that is important its how I am growing to be a better women.

    I feel very confused at this time, so, I am trying not to get my heart involved into allot of stuff that is happening...I feel peoples, pain,love,anger,tears, frustration,happiness and so on..

    I need to continue on my Journey to seek truth in whats in me.

    I feel like maybe I have taken everything that was taught to me, and not taking actually what was really to my bennifit..Does that make any sense to you Hans.?

    So I have come to you, to see what you see in me..if you can.

    My birthday is August 10,1960 born at AM in the morning

    My partner was Born December 20th,1959 8AM

    So if you have the time I would appreciate any incite that you could give me. If I am intruding on this thread, forgive me, just let me know:)

    Peace,Light,Love

  • Thank you Hans, I really try to be humble and approach all with the knowing that i do not know thier suffering and only have kind and loving thoughts in my being. It is hard to always remember and sometimes I forget. This usually gets me into to trouble. and lately I have been being most wild. I guess I am feeling the freedom of releasing the old parellels and forgiving .

    Soi onto the player, well I met him in March and we have the most fun intense time when our lives interact, although it is sparse since we have such crazy schedules. His birthdate is 11/17/70. The one who has my heart, I met him back in April and then he moved away but is coming back in the winter for work. He pushes me away then emails how much he misses me. He truly is the one, I want to be with, but I have been not waiting for him either. His birthdate is 8/30/69. And as the puppy who followed me home well I agree He just does not give me the energy these other do and his birthday is 8/31/76. Thank you Hans it been awhile like I said and I have always valued your insight. Uullee



  • firehorsecrab,

    can we have stability of a life well-lived and built coupled with that freedom, by embracing insecurity and the possibilities/potentialities it holds? no.

    It would be so fun to cross paths someday and talk for hours on a park bench under a shade tree, wouldn't it? no, not on a park bench, they are too hard for me, but with a little more comfort, of course.

    Times in the fifties were not easy for Ma and Pa in

    the rural area of West Texas, as a ten-year drought

    took no mercy on small farmers. Still, Pa was

    determined to send Junior off to the prestigious

    University of Texas, if only for one semester, to boast

    of his son's academic achievements to the neighbors. So

    money was saved for several years until one thousand

    dollars were accumulated.

    As Junior boarded the bus ready for departure, Pa

    sternly announced, "Junior, your Ma and I have

    sacrificed a lot to send you to the university, and if

    you really watch yourself you can make it through the

    year with this money." And he handed the boy an

    envelope containing the one thousand dollars.

    Junior, however, arrived at the university with

    notions other than that of earning a degree. He enjoyed

    nights and days of fun and games, recklessly spending

    Pa's money until one month later all was spent.

    In spite of his desperate situation, Junior wrote a

    letter, saying, "Pa, there are many smart teachers here

    and one of my professors says he can teach old Blue,

    our hound dog, to talk... for only five hundred

    dollars."

    When Pa read the letter he became excited and told

    Ma, "This may be our lucky day at last. If the boy is

    right, we can put that useless hound dog in the circus,

    become rich, and retire for life!"

    So Pa mortgaged the farm and all the equipment,

    borrowed five hundred dollars from the bank, and sent

    it along with Old Blue on the bus. When the dog arrived

    with the money, Junior, not wanting to be bothered with

    the animal, killed it and forgot about it. As he

    continued his carefree life-style for a few more weeks,

    the money again ran out.

    By now, however, Junior had learned the trick, so he

    again wrote to his Pa, "Gee, Pa, Old Blue had us all

    fooled. He is smarter than we thought. The professor

    has already taught him to speak English, and now he

    says that this dog is so intelligent that for only five

    hundred dollars more he could be taught two more

    languages, to sing and to dance."

    After reading the letter, Pa and Ma were overtaken by

    visions of great wealth and fame. They immediately

    hocked all of their belongings, borrowed from all of

    their friends, and finally raised another five hundred

    dollars to send to Junior. This time the money lasted

    until the Thanksgiving break, at which time Junior and

    Blue were both expected home.

    Excited, Pa went to meet Junior at the bus station,

    but to his surprise, Junior was without the new

    superstar hound dog. Running up to him he cried, "Hi,

    Junior! Where is old Blue?"

    Junior pulled Pa aside and with a serious look

    explained, "Pa, the damndest thing happened on the way

    here. Old Blue was sitting here beside me talking up a

    storm, when suddenly he said, 'Junior, I got to s-hit

    real bad!' And I said, 'Blue, just hold back till we

    get to the next town. I got to shave, also, and we have

    a ten-minute layover. We can use the restroom there.'

    "So, Pa, Old Blue was sitting on the crapper and I was

    shaving with that straight-edged razor you gave me last

    Christmas, when Blue said, 'Say, I wonder if your Pa is

    still fuc-king that old cross-eyed mare at the farm?'

    And Pa, I got so damn mad I just cut that dog's head

    off!"

    Pa bolted forward, very excited, and said, "Are you

    sure you killed that sonofaxbitch, son?"

    This goes on and on. Somebody has to come out of it.

    If you are waiting for the whole world to become

    innocent, and then you will become innocent, then it is

    not going to happen ever. Forget about the world. You

    be innocent and lose anything that is bound to be lost

    by dropping cunningness. And you will not be a loser,

    remember.



  • Hi shatz,

    Wie geht's? Mir geht es gut.

    Können Sie mir helfen? Ja, das kann ich.

    Gratulation, very good, you spelt all those german words right!

    Now you can go to this site trying to find out, what my answer meant....

    Does that make any sense to you ? Yes.

    what you see in me: I see in you self imposed imprisonment waiting for a strong impulse from the outside setting you free for living in the here and now and celebrating life.

    My partner was Born December 20th,1959 8AM: This is usually representing a business-minded man who is creative. He could be a salesman or promoter of some product or idea and always is involved in the world of business or finance. There is great financial success, especially success through promoting or selling, or otherwise being very creative in your business. On the other hand, he will be playing either a romantic, creative, or dishonest role in your life at this time.

    I would appreciate any incite that you could give me: pursue absolutely an inner equilibrium learning how to stay balanced.

    Sheila, every child in its innocence knows, and every child

    goes astray because of so much knowledge being poured

    in by the parents, by the priests, by the teachers.

    Soon the child's innocence is completely covered with

    all kinds of bull-shit.

    The whole effort of meditation is to cut through all

    the dust that society has poured upon you and just to

    find that small nature you were born with.



  • I see what you're saying... I don't feel like I can be compared to this boy though... I have been honest and mostly keep myself pretty straight and narrow, just in moments - I have a side that likes to be free! I've been thinking some more about what you said about my attachment to people... and it's true - I do have a hard time letting people go... I'll try and get clear about that and work on letting go... of course, we could sit somewhere more comfortable!



  • uullee,

    His birthdate is 11/17/70: He has intuition. It indicates a time when his intuition will be stronger than usual. There is also reponsibility in speech and communications and making compromises to maintain a peaceful surrounding. Situations will arise that promote bringing his life into balance and stability. Whatever is out of balance will have to be adjusted so there may be karmic debts to pay. On a more universal level, this indicates a time when he can become aware of a special purpose in his life, something to do with sharing higher knowledge with others. Thus it can be a harbinger of an important mission for him, one which will lead him to a higher purpose and lifestyle in the spiritual sense.

    I have always valued your insight: you're scared of your wealth.

    When Rinzai was dying he asked his disciples, "I have

    lived my life always authentically and originally. Now

    I don't know how to die originally. You are my

    disciples -- will someone suggest a way?"

    Just see the point that even death is just a game:

    "Will someone suggest how I should die? -- so nobody

    can say that I was not original."

    The disciples looked at each other. It was a very

    difficult question. Almost ninety-nine point nine

    percent of people die lying on the bed. But that is not

    original, that is a very traditional way of dying.

    Someone suggested that an ancient monk had died

    sitting in the lotus posture .... Rinzai said, "If

    somebody has died sitting in the lotus posture, now

    that is no longer original. You suggest something that

    is ORIGINAL."

    Somebody suggested, "You can die standing."

    But one monk said, "I have heard about one monk who

    died standing, so I don't think that is original."

    Rinzai said, "Such a difficulty! Can't anyone suggest

    to me, in my old age ... I have been teaching you my

    whole life and you cannot even help me to die

    originally?"

    One disciple said, "The only thing I can conceive is

    to die standing on your head. I don't think anybody has

    done that before."

    Rinzai said, "This looks right. Is there any

    objection?"

    And there was no objection from his thousands of

    disciples, so he decided to stand on his head and die.

    And he stood on his head and died!

    Now the disciples were in difficulty:

    What to do with such a man? Is he really dead? Can

    somebody die and still remain standing on the head?

    Should we burn him, or wait? Perhaps he is not dead

    ....

    They tried in every way to find out: the breathing is

    not there, the heartbeat is not there, and my god, he

    is standing on his head! Even people who are alive and

    are not practicing yoga will find it very difficult to

    stand on the head. And dead people don't practice yoga.

    Somebody suggested, "The only way to be on the safe

    side is ... his elder sister is a nun, living in a

    nearby monastery. It is better that we call her and

    tell her, `Your brother is dying and he is making a

    fool of himself, standing on his head. He is creating

    trouble for us.'"

    The nun came and she said to Rinzai, "Rinzai, you

    have always been mischievous from your childhood. Now

    this is no time to be mischievous -- just get up and

    lie down and die the way people usually die!"

    Rinzai stood up, laughed ... and the whole assembly

    laughed -- "This is strange!" And he lay down on the

    bed, and the sister went away. She did not even wait,

    and he was dying!

    Now it became even more difficult for the disciples

    to decide whether he was dead or not. He opened one of

    his eyes and said, "Don't be worried, I am dead. You

    just prepare for the funeral; otherwise the sun is

    going to set and it will be night. You prepare the

    funeral while I rest."

    Great people ... strangely great. But they have

    happened only on the path of Zen, because Zen does not

    take anything seriously -- neither life nor death,

    neither good nor bad. Its insistence is very simple and

    single: just find your inner center, from where your

    consciousness arises and radiates. Then do whatever

    comes spontaneously to you and it is right. Even if the

    whole world says it is wrong, it does not matter.



  • Danke sehr viel Hans:)

    Hi shatz,

    Gratulation, very good, you spelt all those german words right!

    Now you can go to this site trying to find out, what my answer meant....

    Wie geht's? Mir geht es gut.

    How are things? to Me it goes well.

    Können Sie mir helfen? Ja, das kann ich

    Can you help me? Yes, this I can

    what you see in me: I see in you self imposed imprisonment waiting for a strong impulse from the outside setting you free for living in the here and now and celebrating life.

    Do you mean God? Or am I searching for someone to save me?

    I would appreciate any incite that you could give me: pursue absolutely an inner equilibrium learning how to stay balanced. umm, by meditating?

    Sheila, every child in its innocence knows, and every child

    goes astray because of so much knowledge being poured

    in by the parents, by the priests, by the teachers.

    Soon the child's innocence is completely covered with

    all kinds of bull-****.That is so true..Hans

    But I’m an adult, Hans, “feeling like a child“.(I lost her a long time ago, I look to seek constantly, research, ask questions. Are you going to tell me The answers are inside? I can’t find them, to much pain covered by fear, I guess

    The whole effort of meditation is to cut through all

    the dust that society has poured upon you and just to

    find that small nature you were born with.

    It was stripped from me when I was a child and an adult Hans that’s why I need help…

    Thank you again hans, i truly appreciate this...

    Peace,light,love

    sheila, shatz treasure:)



  • interesting. I have always known him to be insightful. And I also have known he will be a free spirit for his own happiness, but his being is very similiar to mine except for now I have to be stable but I feel this takes away from my balance and that is why I am struggling to gain this. I have been told that balance is a part of my consciousness and I seek this without knowing. This is some of the karmic energy I am working through, never would I have thought I would be a widowed mom of 2 from the beggining of this journey, but here it now 5 years into this and my youngest about turn 6. So this is my struggle, to maintain the freedom my being seeks and still be a mother and father! But as I said I have been working through this and then I meet this person. Who from the beggining I knew to be a player. But I crave what he has, the freedom to roam and do what is spontaneous. So how about the one who has my heart... how does he fold into my expanding awareness. I beleive these are all teachers in my life to help me journey of expanding my boundaries that contain the fear. For it is about finding the inner circle of peace within yourself and knowing from this conciousness. Once again I love your parable and how it can open my blinds. When I want to hide within the crowd, that is when I am always noticed! Thanks, Hans nice to communicate again.



  • Oh Hans - you do have a way with giving me the reality checks I must need. I'm feeling like maybe the grace, forgiveness and unconditional love I've been given are truly precious and not to be tested again and again. I feel like the one I've been so in love with and resolving past life stuff with may have moved into another relationship, and it's truly time for me to lovingly let go... I will still care, but I need to quit hoping he'll want me again, and quit wanting him. Do you sense that he is loving a new person? I think it might be a relief/release on some level for me to know this if it's true. Thank you for riding my wavy ocean with me... ❤



  • shatz,

    yes, treasure means in German: Schatz.

    Do you mean God? No.

    Or am I searching for someone to save me? No.

    by meditating? no.

    Are you going to tell me The answers are inside? Yes.

    I need help…: follow your gut feelings trusting your energy.

    There is a proverb that man proposes and god

    disposes. But why should god be so against man? Why

    should he be so cruel? There is no god to dispose

    anything, and if there is, he cannot be so cruel as to

    dispose your poor desires. You don't ask much. You ask

    almost nothing, trivia. Why should he dispose? He can't

    be so miserly.



  • Danke sehr viel Hans:)

    Now I need to reflect,on that verse, its been awhile since i have looked at a proverb.

    Peace,Light,Love and Laughter Hans,

    Sheila
