About me

My name is Kristina and I’m living in Sweden, where I also grew up. But my searching for the truth has brought me to many places on Earth, I have met many wonderful people and made important life experiences on my way to finding my True Self. A higher, spiritual self. And I did meet it… What you have experienced, that you know is true and no one can ever take away that insight from you…

Like the Lotus flower rising from mud, through water to sunshine and air, is cultivation. From impure thoughts and feelings, through transformation in the challenges of life – to freedom and bliss of soul in the light of unconditional love and truth.

Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, three brilliant shining guiding stars on my journey of life. Or Zhen-Shan-Ren in Chinese, words that are more complex. With the meaning of Truth, Truthfulness, being your True Self – to be Good, Benevolent and have Compassion – to have Tolerance, Forbearance, Endurance..
…..
Welcome on my journey :-)

A Buddha's face, clear and pure, gently smiling. The symbol of the Divine Being and Life.

The following quote by Buddha Sakyamuni (the one that we in West know as Buddha, the word Buddha actually means “one who is enlighten”) reflects well my experience of spirituality and its development.

“After every happiness comes misery; they may be far apart or near. The more advanced the soul, the more quickly does one follow the other. What we want is neither happiness nor misery. Both make us forget our true nature; both are chains – one iron, one gold; behind both is the Atman, who knows neither happiness nor misery. These are states, and states must ever change; but the nature of the Atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it; only wash away the dross and see it.”

Buddha

  1. Your blog is so beautiful Kristina ~ I love reading each of your entry. Its really such a lovely journey to follow.

    Thank you!

    Love always,
    Anja

    • Thanks Dear Anja for your appreciation and enjoy of my blog.
      All the best to You/With Love, Kristina

      • Your blog is beautiful Kristina good luck

  2. I was actually searching if one can still do transcendental meditation while cultivating, and i was led to your blog. very nice blog and i think its your inner radiance that illuminates your blog.
    So far i believe i got my answer.
    Thanks

    • Thank you Fellow Practitioner for your kind words.

      As you might know we shouldn’t mix methods when we cultivate Falun Dafa/Falun Gong, we should only do one method at a time. I don’t know if you mean the method TM by “transcendental meditation”, then I don’t think you should do that if you choose to cultivate the method of Falun Dafa/Falun Gong.

      According to my experencies, it’s by letting go of attachments and cultivating yourself into your true self that you can attain transcendental states. And Fa (Universal Law) will guide you.

      So no striving, no mind intent during the exercises and a calm mind while studying Fa, just purifying yourself (by cultivating and practising the exercises) and getting insights from studying the Fa (and follow them) will bring you to this state of being.

      That’s how it’s been for me anyhow.
      All the best to you, Heshi.

  3. You are welcome!, what i mean is doing TM separate and Falun Dafa differently, but as i cultivate myself i am learning a lot of new things and letting go off attachments, but my concern was is TM a cultivation? or what is it?

  4. Hi Kristina – I like your web site and appreciate that you have posted some of my translations on your blog. Here is a translation of one of Li Bai’s spirit poems that I hope you also like.

    A Song of Lu Mountain

    Here is a translation of one of Li Bai’s spirit poems. The Madman of Chu appears briefly in the Analects and chides Confucius for thinking he can or should meddle in affairs of state.

    A Song of Lu Mountain

    I am the madman of Chu
    Who sang for Confucius
    And laughed at him too
    All the while
    In both my hands
    A precious jade staff
    Tightly I clasped

    To Yellow Crane Tower
    At dawn I departed
    Onto the Five Sacred Peaks
    Searching for Immortals
    Far and wide

    For an entire lifetime
    Across Ming Shan
    I have wandered there
    Then across Lu Shan
    Where I approached the Big Dipper
    Through the nine screens
    Traversing through clouds
    Like wind through
    A brocade clothe

    Out of the shadows
    And into brightness
    I found a crystal clear lake
    Its surface shimmering with
    Dazzling colorful rays
    And the gates of golden watchtower
    Opened silently before me
    Revealing in the distance
    Two more enormous peaks

    Down a winding path I strolled
    Where there flowed a silvery stream
    Under three stone bridges
    It passed and then tumbled
    Down a sheer precipice
    In a misty waterfall
    Obscure with a thick
    Blue green haze

    While on the skyline
    Clouds glowed persimmon
    Herald of the morning sun
    And birds beat their wings
    In endless flight on their way
    To the state of Wu

    Ascending these heights
    What great vistas have I seen
    Of Heaven and Earth
    As well as places in between
    A river that flows apart from
    Space and time
    Measureless and vast
    Filled with whitecaps
    Flowing fast
    Yellow clouds
    Propelled ten thousand miles
    By the relentless wind
    Towards nine distant
    Snow capped peaks

    This is the song
    Of Lu Shan
    The spirit that
    The mountain speaks
    At leisure I gaze
    At her rocky crags
    As into a mirror
    More clearly
    It’s my own heart
    I glimpse

    Down pathways
    Long overgrown
    Moss everywhere
    A thick dark green
    Taking an extra dose
    Of cinnabar tablets
    Beyond this world
    The heart stirs
    Like a zither
    Strummed three times
    It trills from
    First to last

    And far in the distance
    See the Immortals assembling
    Filled with roseate inner light
    In their hands they hold
    Hibiscus blossoms
    To present the Jade Emperor
    In the Imperial Court

    Before crossing the void
    Nine levels ascending
    At last arriving
    At the truth of Lu
    Approaching utter clarity
    Though the work continues
    Onward still

    Best regards — Lan Hua

    • Oh, thanks! :-) It’s so beautiful! I really appreciate poems like this and Li Bai has become a favourite. I know that your translations are appreciated as well. I look forward to read more of this kind.
      Kindly Kristina
      P.S. Sorry, but this theme doesn’t make line breaks and paragraph breaks in the comments… I think I will publish it as a post since it doesn’t look so nice like this.
