Display name: Douwe
About Me:

I left my job as coordinator of oceanographic research with the National Reseach Foundation many years ago. I had reached the limits of science more or less at the same time that I was reaching the limits of religion. Yet deep within myself I realised that there is another way. It is that which is within all of us. As member of the 'Build South Africa Foundation' for a few years, many years as wilderness trail guide and as playmate at a preschool in Pretoria I not only gained a deep insight into our human psyche, but also realised that all our pain and conflict is not necessary.My books, 'From Intellect to Intelligence: A Radical Natural Human Alternative' and 'The Power of Childhood: A Key to Life, Love and Forgiveness'. are available on Amazon.com and my website www.douwevanderzee.co.za.

I am amazed at the impact that Robin Williams’ suicide seems to have had on the world. Has any actor’s death ever had such an impact?

Some of the most profound experiences in my life have been the experiences of group process when I was a voluntary counsellor with Life Line many years ago.

Religion is a belief; spirituality is the realisation – a deep inner awareness – that our true nature is spirit.

Minister Shabangu, are you willing to sacrifice the last opportunity for a wilderness experience available to all in South Africa to ultimately benefit only a few?

I think I wrote that book mainly to sort out my own thoughts.

On the first day as teacher in a new school, the class of grade nine girls sauntered into the classroom.

The social decision to allocate educational resources preferably to those citizens who have outgrown the extraordinary learning capacity will probably appear as bizarre.

How do we get closer to an understanding of life? By understanding ourselves.

Never before in the history of the world has the world shown such universal respect and admiration for one man

Victimhood is an immense source of power even if it can do its user no real good. It is poisonous in both directions.

The experience of union, with man, or religiously speaking, with God, is by no means irrational.
