First of all, there is a difference between the individual tests and the tests of the couple relationship. These come from the couple relationship itself, which is a structure built between the two. So, the tests for one of the lovers are different from the tests for the other lover, and also the tests for the two lovers together are completely different from the tests the lovers have to pass individually.
What is a test? A test is a phase of crystallization of certain lessons we have previously received. A test always appears at the level of the prior lessons. We can never say that we receive a spiritual test that does not fit us and the lesson we have just learned. This does not happen in school either, so at the level of the universe it certainly does not happen. The spiritual test always comes according to the lessons we have had. It is the same in the couple relationship. The tests in the couple relationship come according to the lessons we could have learned or that we have learned before. A test is not the same as a lesson. In a lesson, we learn, we train, we make mistakes, we do it again, the situations repeat themselves until we learn. When there is a test, you cannot check the material anymore, you have to say what you know. When we are tested, we are put into a situation in which the source, the lesson itself, does not appear anymore, all that appears is a new situation in which we see what we have learned. For example, if we become aware of a mistake – our attachment to certain objects and situations in our lives, and we mistake them for the couple relationship, we do not realize this immediately. We carry on, we love each other, we have a relationship, but there will be certain lessons which we will tend to be taught.
For example, God comes and takes away one of the objects we have attached to our love. In that situation, we have the possibility of seeing how in a strange way we tend to see that the relationship itself suffers, even if only that element disappeared, which anyway was not connected to the relationship. It was just an effect of the relationship. Like in the example with the park, in an objective life situation, God just makes us move somewhere else, where there is no park and all of a sudden we feel we do not love each other anymore. Somebody who is lucid will immediately say: “Let’s not make this mistake, let’s not identify love with all its products, with all its effects.” Then, the two have learned the lesson. When another more serious life situation appears the two will remember this lesson and will successfully pass a very big spiritual test. Or not necessarily the walk in the park, but the other one’s physical presence: for example, for a shorter or longer period, one of the two lovers is removed from the other one, objectively, inevitably. This can be a test of the couple relationship. But if they did not learn this lesson, they will say that the other one’s physical presence was actually the cause of their love. In this way, they fail, and when such a situation appears they regress. That is why these tests of the couple relationship have the particularity of testing that which is not necessarily connected to ourselves, but what is connected to the relationship itself.

Natha participated in Sund Livsstil messe – 27-29 September 2013
by Arthur Lederer
Once a year, for the last 28 years, Sund Livsstil gathers around 200 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors who come together for a weekend fair dedicated to a healthy life style.
Of course, everybody wants to be healthy. But what are we doing about it? Is it enough to just eat whatever, live however, and when the body gets sick to just go to a doctor to fix whatever is broken?Read more...
Peace begins in the Heart
On Saturday, 21st of September, Copenhagen saw hundreds of peaceful people marching through its streets, flying banners for peace. In these days when every news-broadcast includes reports of death and destruction, it is not at all usual to see people taking time and effort to stand for peace and harmony.Read more...
The master disciple relationship is very well represented in Bhagavad Gita, in chapter 10, where Lord Krishna reveals the infinite manifestations of his unmanifest spirit to his disciple Arjuna, and in chapter 11, where He reveals His Cosmic form, in response to Arjuna’s prayer to see what are the many aspects and forms of the Lord Himself.

In this narrow bottle neck of cultural narratives currently running our "civilized" world, the digitalized and institutionalized systems of information and communication have become a spiders web of mind intoxicating thought patterns, which we can either travel on with excessive speed, or get caught into, as the flies are prey to the predators teeth of total consumption, in other words a total annihilation of our individual freedom and power to act independently.Read more...

Who`s holding the remote control of your mind?
The "mind manipulation laws" seem to take reduced ability of self-determination as a reason to restrict the right of self-determination. It is clear that criminalization in the area of thought and belief threatens the open society. Democracy is founded on the axiom of self-determination. S...

Yoga is an extremely complex spiritual tradition, having a history older than five thousand years.
It possesses a very rich and extensive literature.
by Gregorian Bivolaru
The genuine yoga tradition unveils a completely different approach in love and sexuality, highly more positive and plenary, unlike the confused and grotesque vision proper to most of the western people, either intoxicated or improperly educated.
The Tantric system is one of the best systems for the modern times, in which spiritual values are forcefully being replaced by materialism and ignorance is happening almost everywhere. Tantra is the spiritual system which, having a scientific side, manages to integrate perfection and the absolute in a practical and tangible way, staying always at the level of immediate reality, instead of sterile philosophical dissertations.
Presentation of the Ten Great Cosmic Powers:
The Tantric Festival 2006 kept by Natha Yogacenter was dedicated to celebrate the Eternal Feminine - the Supreme Energy of God: MAHA SHAKTI (The Great Shakti). As a gift for our web-guests, who could not participate to this extraordinary tantric camp we here publish the entire presentation of the Ten Great Cosmic Powers from the camp program.
