Stan Schaap, born May 15, 1947, lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He always had a bent for reflection and contemplation, which, by the way, often boiled down to nothing more than musing and being in the clouds. You couldn’t say he had a quick start. It took him rather long to become used to himself, […]

not a victim of my past

There used to be times when I thought I might just as well kill myself, though something inside me never could take that seriously. That was actually quite annoying. I wanted to do at least this suicide thing right, but I wasn’t even capable of that. I thought then, that this made me an utmost […]

What is love? It is simply the essence of reality. This is hard to accept when I believe in the reality of good and evil and the concreteness of physical matter. If I refuse to examine my unproven assumptions about reality, this essence will remain invisible. So, a little unbending is necessary to enable a […]

If I cherish an image about myself that is not inspired by what I am, then I’m a cause of trouble, especially for myself. That’s why spirituality is so practical because it means getting in touch and staying in touch with what I am, through openness. These meditations help me to change my self-image and […]
