Hi, I’m Jaap.
I’m the person you’d meet at a diner and next thing you know we’re in a profound conversation about reincarnation while scarfing down cherry pie and coffee.
I’ve always been a very curious person determined to find answers to life’s basic questions:
Why are we here?
Where are we going?
Where do we come from?
What should we do while we’re here?
How do we do it?
I quickly found myself practicing a variety of schools of yoga and meditation practices. After twenty six years of studying the evolution of integral human consciousness and yogic sciences, there is one clear central theme:
There is one energy sustaining all things and all people within you.
I'd always thought the purpose of a yogic practice was to some day experience full Self Realization (Enlightenment), but that's not the full truth. According to ancient yogic scriptures, all schools of yoga and meditation are actually meant to help us fulfill 4 purposes.
In cooperation with the energy within, you're meant to fulfill these 4 purposes:
- Flow: Align with this flowing energy so that you are able receive.
- Embody: Fully embody this energy (Enlightenment, Self Realization, Satori, etc.).
- Create: Consciously create, fulfilling positive desires and needs with thoughts, words, and actions.
- Contribute: Develop your innate skills in order to fulfill your duties and contribute to the overall evolution.
So, that's it. That's our purpose. And, just like any other thing you want to master and do well, you need to practice. Because it doesn't matter that you know the truth. What matters is that you're living the truth.
I felt called to create Dharma Diner.
