A crossroads in our evolution
Our way of life on this planet is becoming increasingly unsustainable. We have created a reality founded on Industrial Consumerism where control, manipulation and exploitation of our natural resouces has brought us to the brink of existence.

At Openhand we advocate going within and discovering the pathway to a higher vibrational reality based on unconditional love, joy and mutual respect for all life; a place where we discover less is more. These articles offer a view on current World News, invite people to question the viability of our current system and instead embark on the inner journey to self completeness...

Solstice Prayer: "Great Spirit"

Submitted by Open on Mon, 12/21/2015 - 07:57

We're moving through the solstice again - a time of great spiritual significance - one of passing, of change and moving on.

The documentary is extremely well produced and high quality. You can watch it free on their website until 22nd November...

Why Human Identity will never solve Human Problems

Submitted by Open on Sun, 05/18/2014 - 06:25

I felt to share this amazingly powerful video by the famous Buddhist Alan Watts - an amazing character, with a core splitting, clear view of life and the world. In it, he sums up so eloquently in my opinion why humanity is in the mess it's in, and offers profound insight in how our biggest issues may be resolved. It's essential to realise the source of the problem: which is a false Human Identity itself. That's why he believes (and so do I), that we'll never solve the problems we face with the identity itself. That's like a turkey voting for Christmas! As he suggests, we must instead 'hand over the direction of nature back to nature'...
