Eternal Life and Reincarnation

Spirit has eternal life and reincarnates many times between the Spiritual Realm and this physical dimension. We are never thrown into this world accidentally; we are born into this Earth with a purpose and a mission.
“A large proportion of human suffering occurs because people think they only live once. When they become fully aware that the present life is only one point in the eternal flow of time, and that they have lived in the past and will live again in the future, they will understand that their future lives will depend on their present Continue reading

Don’t Give Up (Not Before Trying)

When I was at the Academy of Fine Arts, we used to attend art exhibitions quite often, starting with receptions with painters, sculptors, graphic artists, etc.
Once I was at a museum in Besiktas, Istanbul with my friends for such a reception.
We examined the exhibition, talked a while, drank something, ate something, and finally it was time to leave.
Museum building was the part of an old palace remained from Ottoman period. There was a long walk path from the museum gates to the garden gates, paralleled to a side street, opening to the main boulevard.
We were about Continue reading

If Jesus Christ Was God’s Incarnate, Then I Am, Too!

First of all, I don’t want to sound like attacking anyone’s religion, which is one of the things I’ll never do. These are just my own thoughts, and just an analyzing a notion, that’s all. Let’s say I’m thinking loud. It’s not forbidden to think, right?
In all the great and established religions, we see prophets or prophets and books. Some divine representative was born among mankind, and he showed the way to God, Jehovah, or Allah.
This is something I can accept easily as a Sufi-spiritual person. But the notion of one of these prophets as the incarnation of Continue reading

I Wasn't A Bully; I Was A "Wounded" Tough Guy!

I was known as a tough guy, who walks around with a sullen face all the time, and would talk to nobody but a few well chosen friends.
Some of my peers would even exaggerate my situation to the point they would see me as a hoodlum.
Perhaps they weren’t so wrong after all, because if, in the cafeteria, I’d like to sit somewhere already taken, I would walk directly to the guy sitting there and say, “Hey, get up, the place is mine!”
And he would leave the place, because of the scary aura I created knowingly.
My reason Continue reading

8 Measures You Can Take Against Bullies

Did you know the biggest scar in the process of bullying is for the bullies’ themselves, and for the rest of their lives?
When they grow up enough to understand the notion of empathy, they feel ashamed for what they did to others in their past.
This harms their self-esteem, and mostly – due to the fact they don’t know any other way around, and because they are left alone due to their manners, so they feel angrier than ever – they continue to their lives as aggressive people who are actually fearful within themselves.
The most powerful cure to Continue reading

Why Do We Become A Target for Bullies?

Simply… because we attract them… because actually we are one of them.
You should understand this principle first: hatred is hatred.
What differs is how you channelize it.
Either you push it out and become an aggressive person, or you swallow your hatred, and become a weak and squashed one.
But there is hatred in both versions, that’s for sure.
Remember the father of my student whom I mentioned about in my article titled Are You A Target for Bullies? Then You Are Probably One of Them?
His source of “being bully” was his father, because he was a monster Continue reading

Are You A Target for Bullies? Then You Are Probably One of Them!

When I was at my late twenties, I had a student for private English lessons. I was teaching him at our home which I lived with my parents. He was a teenager, and was attending to a school nearby.
Someday he was really late for the session, and because then we didn’t have cell phones so common as today, I had no means to call him and ask where he was.

He was one hour late already, so I decided leave home. But as soon as I stepped through the door, he was there with a black eye, and with Continue reading

Why Don't You Do It Again?

It was the first hours in the morning. I woke up writhing with a sharp pain in my stomach. It was hurting through the evening, but it became worse all suddenly while I was asleep. But I wasn’t sure what hurt most; the pain, or the cause of that pain?
I often see some boys who are bullied around by their peers at school in movies or read about them in novels. Yeah, and I know probably many of us had the experience at some point of our lives.
But for me, it was like how it was for Continue reading

Everything Has A Reason

I was 26 years old, and I had another refusal from another recording company for my album. I was sad. I was mad. Mostly at God!
There should be some mistake about my location on Earth, or it was some kind of a sick cosmic joke to have all these wonderful artistic talents, and to be born in a country where you seemingly have no way to use them! DAMN! Why did my name have to be Selim, but not Rick, Nick, or Johnny? If I were in the US, UK, or any European country, and with more means and Continue reading

10 Principles for Success in Life!

It doesn’t matter what age we live in; there are some universal principles that are always true and absolutely effective for everyone and anyone. Whatever we do in life, these principles always lead us to success.

1. What is your goal? Know your goal and focus!
Nobody can do a lot of things at the same time. You can do it for a few days perhaps, but you get tired and begin to slow down in the long run. Therefore, either in personal or in professional life, set your goal carefully, and focus on it, a few at most at Continue reading

Motivational Monday: Do You Let Society Determine Who You Are?

It was a peaceful morning in the Conformity Henhouse. All the chickens were walking around the hen, feeding, and looking at proud roosters with longing and awe. The most colorful and biggest roosters were looking attentively to the most beautiful and youngest chicks. And of course, gossip was never ending.
All among this peaceful scenery, there was only one rooster, who was always left alone in a corner, trying to collect discarded seeds to feed. His name was Oafy. Nobody liked him, and nobody talked to him other than occasional sneers and disdain. So he would stay away from the Continue reading

Don’t Overestimate Yourself, Majesty! Real King Is Above You!

A long while ago, a ruler named Canute was on the throne. Just like many leaders or people with power, Canute was surrounded with sycophants, who showered him with praise. Whenever he walked into a room, compliments would begin to rain:
“You are the greatest person ever lived,” one would say.
“O, my king, another person as strong as you can never exist,” would claim another.
“Majesty, there’s nothing you can’t do,” one would say, smiling.
“O, noble Canute, you are the master of everything!” would sing another. “Nothing in this world can dare to disobey you!”
However, the king Continue reading

Vatican Killed The Girl Through Exorcism!

Yes, I believe in paranormal. Yes, I saw the evidence for supernatural for numerous times. Yes, I know the power metaphysics or alchemy can give you, if you know how to harness them, which is extremely difficult, and throughout my entire life, I could see only a few people who could do that really (but really). However, when we are interested in such topics, we are so eager to see paranormal in everything we see that sometimes we follow a blind faith, accepting without questioning first, and trust me, this attitude is incredibly dangerous, because while the metaphysics hide under Continue reading

Arguments Versus The Secret

The aim of this article is to answer some premises that were put forward by the book The Secret, and based on a conversation I had with an author friend of mine.
As most of you would remember easily, the book – and the concept – was about the law of attraction. From various sources, from my observance, and from my own experiences, I can confidently tell you that the law of attraction is real, and one of the basic principles of the Universe, as solid as the gravity.
However, the main problem with the book – and the Continue reading

Universe Is Not God!

This article is actually some sort of a prelude for another article about the book The Secret. However, since it’s quite long, and still the material here should be delivered before discussing about The Secret, I decided to present it as a separate article.
One of the very common mistakes I see with spiritual approach in New Age is to see the Universe as God. Spiritualism says the Almighty Creator penetrates everything, and dwells in everything, so everything that was or is created carries the energy particles of Almighty. However, to think Universe as God means to restrain the Continue reading

Spiritual Relationships – The Perfect Sound

In our last post, we began to talk about spiritual relationships with twin souls, or twin sparks. This time, we continue with other types of bond, which also – almost – follows a sequence until you find your twin soul.
Just a warning! The path that will lead you to continue reading...

Spiritual Relationships

Spiritual Relationships 

An acknowledgement first

It’s been an amazingly fast week, and among all the writing and translating I have to do, I watched as our Twitter follower number steadily climbed from 1,000 to almost 3,000 in only one week. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it for your interest, and trust. I welcome and thank you all from the deepest of my heart.

You seem to like what subjects I’m trying to cover here: Mainly, everything any individual needs to prepare for the New Age, from paranormal to self-help and motivational subjects (political and politically ideological subjects are most certainly “out!” because what we try to discuss here are entirely universal). This is the beginning of a lifetime mission, that’s for sure. But Universe seems to support my cause here, and I’m delivered all kind of help and support everyday, trustworthy friends, colleagues, fellow souls coming to extend a hand and share. Very special thanks to... 
MaryBurgess, (one of the kindest souls I’ve ever met, whom I proudly call an associate, and a very well equipped expert on such subjects);
Janet Nestor (another essential friend, who can lighten up your day with a single smile); 
Eneh Akpan (a very special friend, who is always eager to share, support, and put a hand under the rock with you);
and many others I can’t name here, who support the blog mainly with their retweets on Twitter.  (A footnote: I met all these people through Web, and social media. So I suggest you to beware the power of Internet, and use it wisely.) And I promise you all that I will do my best to provide best materials, info, and thoughts I can all the time. Very soon my professional website will be in your service, and we will continue to our sharing through that new platform.
One of the main problems I face is to choose topic for articles to write about. When you have a mountain of information in your mind, and in your library, it’s difficult to pick a subject. Therefore, I’m trying to create a systematic plan to know what topics to cover and when.
Since I’m aware there are many people out there who are curious about soul types, and finding their soul-mates, I think this is one of the most pressing issues to be mentioned. But, a caution: Until you can find the right person (whether your soul-mate or not), there are tons of things you need to complete within yourself, and your most intimate circle of life, meaning your daily life. And when you finally find your soul-mate, or even twin spark, you will have other and more challenging problem (trust me, I know it from experience).
However, we will begin to examine this subject this week, and we will cover it mode deeply later in coming months providing examples from real life.

Today, I’d like to start with…

Twin Souls, or Twin Sparks
There are many incoming information from numerous sources, and since the beginning of new millennium, there is a huge information upload on the subject, since the time is finally approaching for the spiritual awakening. Twin Souls, or Twin Sparks, is a very important subject, and numerous books are being written continue reading...

Crystal Children

I was running real fast through the barren ground; like fifteen feet a step fast. I heard some old man yelled at me to stop, because some parts of the ground didn’t exist actually, but just illusion, and that if I set my foot on one of those parts, I would stumble into an abyss.

The ground was brownish orange, and rocky. I thought of stopping, but it was so exhilarating that I didn’t want it. continue reading...

Surrender and Be Grateful

We live in a world where people get greedier and greedier. Rich gets richer, poor gets poorer, yeah, and I know this is a cliché, but still true. I used to think that the reason why a person is focused on only materialistic values whereas almost everybody seems to be cursing the materialistic wealth continue reading...

Whooo is Fooler?

While working at his shop, the butcher is taken aback by a dog coming through the door. He kicks the dog out, but the animal comes back.

When it’s back for the second time, the man approaches the dog and sees it carries a note paper between its jaws. Taking the paper from the dog continue reading...

Braveheart and Differences Between A Leader and A “Boss”

We are going to win!
Most of us have seen the movie Braveheart by Mel Gibson, right? Personally, I watched it exactly for 52 times (whenever I feel low, it pulls me up again everytime), so I can even recite most of the lines while watching (that’s one of the reasons I can’t watch it Turkish dubbed version, because I can’t focus on the movie without pointing the mistakes translator made).

I had written another article about Braveheart long ago continue reading...

The Real Greatest Signs of End Times

This article might be seen as the sequel of “WhatThe Hell Is It All About Vampires?” and also the “December 21, 2012: Is It Real or Hoax?” article series.
In these last four pieces of articles, we discussed as logically as possible with all the evidence we could find – especially on End Days or Armageddon – what was all that arguments beginning with Mayan Calendar, and at last, we mentioned about vampires as a secret community of elites with shadowy intentions. Again, I’d like to remind you that I’m not an expert on the subject, but I’m a free mind who thinks so much over such topics, and now thinks loud now.
We examined the scientific, theological and spiritual aspects of the discussions surrounding the notion of End Days before, so no need to repeat them all here once again, you can check the articles mentioned above. However, beginning from 90’s, I’ve been claiming that there are two most important signs that show we are already in last days. continue reading...

What The Hell Is It All About Vampires

It seems like we see vampires, zombies, werecreatures everywhere we look nowadays. On television, on silver screen, in the books, at computer themes, cell phone themes, in music, on Internet, etc. What the…?


According to our lovely and one of the most reliable source of knowledge,, origins of the vampire notion is explained as:
“Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person/being. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and may go back to "prehistoric times", the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century continue reading...

December 21, 2012: Is It Real or Hoax? – Part 3 / Spiritual Doomsday

Are We Really Coming to An End?

This is the third and last part of our article which we tried to examine the opinions about the end times through, first, scientific approach, and second, theological approach as much as we could with what we have in hand. I tried to share my thoughts about the subject, using all the knowledge and pieces of data I could accumulate so far. And again, I have to remind you readers that I’m not an expert on the subject, but a person with free mind, who thinks, reads, searches a lot on such topics.
In this part, I’ll try to examine the subject through spiritual continue reading...

December 21, 2012: Is It Real or Hoax – Part 2 / Theological Doomsday

First of all, I’m aware that I’m writing the second part of this article after December 21, 2012, and it may seem to some of you that it’s already a waste due to the fact that nothing happened on that day. Well, I will come to that in the third part of this article, but as you can remember from the first part, I didn’t write anything showing that I believed in a Last Day specifically anyway. I use this title because it somehow summarizes the idea surrounding the notion of Armageddon. So, let’s continue:

b. Theological point of view
Today we continue with the second part this article, which we will examine the topic from the theological aspect. Well, I can’t claim to have an expertise on theology, I don’t have a formal degree on the subject after all; however, since I’m so interested in it due to my curiosity of the relationship between daily life and divinity, I will just try to share what I gathered about this topic, and what I think of each of them. continue reading...
