This book is the second part of two books on the concept of The Matrix Conspiracy. The Matrix conspiracy is a mix of postmodern intellectualism, management theory, self-help and New Age, which together constitute a global spreading ideology. This ideology is created by The Mythology of Authenticity – a mythology where everything is about becoming and not being. This mythology has two world images: humanistic psychology and constructivism. And these two world images again have two methods:...

This book is the last in a series of three about Morten Tolboll´s teaching, Meditation as an Art of Life. The first book was named Meditation as an Art of Life – a basic reader. The second was named Dream Yoga. The first book is the basic reader on asking philosophical question in a meditative-existential way, and the systematical instruction in the belonging supporting exercises. The second book is about about how to - through critical thinking – navigate through the dream-labyrinth of...

This book is the first part of two books on the concept of The Matrix Conspiracy. Morten Tolboll uses the term in order to describe the outbreak of a culture of self-assertion, where the classical deadly sins have been turned into virtues. The Matrix Conspiracy is a mixture of postmodern intellectualism, management theory, self-help and New Age, which is creating a “me-me-me-and-then-perhaps-you-if-it-serves-me-logic”, and a spirituality, where the object of worship is the ego. It is a...

Thought distortions are “techniques”, that, unconsciuos or conscious, are used from an interest in finding ways of getting on in the world, rather than an interest in finding ways of discovering the truth. Thought distortions are the background for poor reasoning, diversionary ploys, seductive reasoning errors, techniques of persuasion and avoidance, psychological factors, which can be obstacles to clear thought. The question is: should one use thought distortions? The question raises the...

The background for this book is the spiritual crisis, Morten Tolboll lived through because of inappropriate consequences of yoga and meditation. Viewed against this background he started to look at meditation as an art of life. Morten Tolboll believes, that meditation isn't some kind of mental visualizing technique, but something philosophical, an art of life, which involves the entire cognitional, existential and ethical reality of Man. Moreover that this concept of meditation is the central...

The spiritual practice consists of meditation and dream yoga. Meditation and dream yoga are two sides of the same thing. If you nevertheless should try to discriminate, then you about meditation can say, that the three aspects of meditation are relaxfullness, awareness and heartfullness. Dream Yoga is shortly said about realizing the illusory aspect of life and death. Normally Dream Yoga is understood as practising meditation during sleep, about realizing the illusory aspects of dreams, and...

“Sûnyatâ” means emptiness. The concept involves especially three other concepts: negation, codependent origination and impermanence. The Sûnyatâ philosophy is a teaching, which has one quite determinate purpose: the neutralization of all the dogmas, theories and viewpoints, which ignorance has created.  And what does “Sutras” mean then? The oldest form of spiritual scriptures, as for example the old Indian Sutras, are intended for meditative reading. Sutras are effective hints to...

People whose lives center on destroying other people's lives by disempowering them, who reduce their victims to dependent subjects to be lorded over, have been called spiritual vampires. Some of the therapists, ministers and gurus I've written about elsewhere in my articles and books could be called spiritual vampires, very aptly. In this article I try to describe the philosophical mechanisms under the thoughts, that create a spiritual vampire.

Inspired by the mythologist Joseph Campbell´s monomyth of The Hero´s Journey, the author and pilgrim Phil Cousineau - in his book The Art of Pilgrimage – The Seeker´s Guide to Making Travel Sacred, divides the art of pilgrimage into seven archetypal steps, which each are divided into subdivisions. In this article I will let these steps and subdivions form the dreaming tracks and songlines in the artwork of the pilgrim, and investigate the universal inner map of the spiritual journey,...

The tendency to connect things and create plausible narratives out of partially fictious items is called Confabulation. A confabulation is a fantasy that has unconsciously replaced events in memory. A confabulation may be based partly on fact or be a complete construction of the imagination. In our time with the spreading of subjectivism and relativism - and therefore Magical thinking - we are seeing how Confabulation somehow gets a justification. There is in fact - as I claim in my concept of...

In internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll's amusement.

In this article I show how Nonviolent Communication (NVC) ends up in the thought distortion called That´s Judgmental , a phrase used to silence critique, because it, for some usually unspecified reasons, consider judgments as violent; that is: judgmental terms such as good versus bad, right versus wrong, fair versus unfair. The psychic terror consists in that these judgmental terms instead become hidden under terms such as needs and feelings (which NVC wrongly consider as non-judgmental in...

This is revealed when we guess that the Devil´s proper name is Lucifer Morningstar , which means Bringer of Light. We hear about the Devil´s double incarnation in the pain-bodies of Dracula and Mina.

In this article I will, with starting point in the concept of authenticity, show the difference between the false spirituality of the self-help industry, and the true spirituality of the original wisdomtraditions. Where authenticity in the self-industry is the same as becoming another (authenticity is a dream, a mythology), then authenticity in the true spiritual traditions is the same as being what you are (authenticity is reality); or said shortly: the difference between becoming and being.
