Kõik on hästi

“Perhaps our dreams are there to be broken, and our plans are there to crumble, and our tomorrows are there to dissolve into todays, and perhaps all of this is all a giant invitation to wake up from the dream of separation, to awaken from the mirage of control, and embrace whole-heartedly what is present. Perhaps it is all a call to compassion, to a deep embrace of this universe in all its bliss and pain and bitter-sweet glory. Perhaps we were never really in control of our lives, and perhaps we are constantly invited to remember this, since we constantly forget it. Perhaps suffering is not the enemy at all, and at its core, there is a first-hand, real-time lesson we must all learn, if we are to be truly human, and truly divine. Perhaps breakdown always contains breakthrough. Perhaps suffering is simply a right of passage, not a test or a punishment, nor a signpost to something in the future or past, but a direct pointer to the mystery of existence itself, here and now. Perhaps life cannot go 'wrong' at all.”

Jeff Foster spirituaalsetest õpetajatest


"You attracted it because you desired it". 

"If you think there's a problem with another's words or actions,

YOU are the one who's confused".

"Everything is just your projection. Everything is in your mind".

"Clear up your vibration and you'll stop attracting bad things to yourself".

"You are too attached to the body. Go beyond the body. It's not who you are."

"If you have doubts, fears, resistance, pain, anger, then you must be in your ego and totally 


"The past is an illusion. Let it go right now!".

Ugh. I'm so tired of all this New Age spiritual bullshit.

I'm tired of ANY spirituality that doesn't fully honour

our messy, unresolvable, first-hand, real-time, embodied human experience.

That doesn't bow deeply to the struggle of our raw and tender hearts.

That guilt-trips us for our imperfections and shames our limitations.

No, it's not always your projection.

Yes, sometimes other people really ARE abusive and need to be stopped.

No, everything isn't always "in your mind".

Yes, your body matters. Your feelings too.

No, your doubts and fears are not 'wrong' or 'bad' or 'unevolved'.

No, you do not 'attract' abuse through a faulty 'vibrational frequency'.

No, you do not deserve to be violated in any way, in the name of Truth, in the name of God, 

in the name of Love, or IN 


Yes, your boundaries deserve to be respected, your 'yes' AND your 'no' too.

No, it's not okay for spiritual teachers to abuse people "for their own good" - to shock them 

into awakening, to enlighten them, to help them drop their "ego".

Teachers that use abuse as a tool are simply abusers, not teachers.

I reject any spirituality that dismisses our tender, vulnerable, fragile humanity.

I reject any spirituality that shames us for our precious human thoughts and feelings.

I reject any spirituality that begins any sentence with "if you were enlightened..."

I reject any spirituality that divides self from no self, divine from human, sacred from 

profane, absolute from relative, 

heaven from earth, duality from nonduality, material from spiritual... 

- Jeff Foster
