The essence

Sage is for people who use only their minds to understand, therefore they miss many other aspects of life and being. Sage essence works like a koan: Think the unthinkable, imagine the unimaginable,  understand what lies beyond understanding.
Purpose in life is not determined by mathematics and logic, not only of imagination and feeling, sense, the synthesis of birth and death, waking and sleeping, speaking and silence.


Sage teaches us the true meaning of things and events. This essence dispels the feeling of emptiness and meaninglessness, it frees the mind from old patterns and opens it for new findings. The perspective can expand, the experience becomes holistic and deep understanding nis the result.
