New Year’s Eve

When ‘wanting’ becomes Being
When ‘resisting’ becomes Peace

When ‘expecting’ becomes Surrender
When ‘knowing’ becomes Wisdom

When ‘judging’ becomes Watching
When ‘thinking’ becomes Stillness

Then you know
Grace has found you
and brought you
Home …

Yes and/or No

When we listen to conversations
When we listen to ourselves

When somebody tells us something
and we react and disagree

When someone asks us a question
and we defend ourselves

There is so much ‘No’ …

‘No’ feeds resistance,
‘No’ feeds the mind
‘No’ separates us from our soul
‘No’ separates us from ourselves

Living is the art to say
‘Yes’ all the time to our soul
To acknowledge the voice within
To see where the other person is right
To digg deep within
To sit with our irritation
And not act out

Living is the art
to act in …

Words

Every word we use, we were taught
Every meaning of a word we use, we were taught

Every word is the verbalization of an impuls, a sensation we feel in the body
Every verbalization is an attempt to put into words what can not be put into words

Every feeling that is put into words
Every thought that is put into words
Every memory, association, perception that is put into words
Is an attempt to point at something which is beyond words

What is love
What is tenderness
What is compassion

Maybe we can not express what something is
Maybe we can only be what we are …

Once and now

Once upon a time
I believed
that after Christmas
the world would be different:
full of peace, full of light and love.

Once upon a time
I believed
that after Newyear’s Eve
the world would be different:
full of peace, full of light and love

Now
I know
that before and after Christmas
before and after Newyear’s Eve
the world in me eternally is the same:
full of peace, full of light and love ..

Wise

When Wisdom touches you,
receives you,
nurtures you,
and welcomes you
in her arms of Light

Confusion will melt,
the darkness,
the pain

And words can be heard
and be held
in the infinite wisdom
that you always are …

Manifesto for you

Beloved,
What I want to create with me and you and in me and you is a space where there is no male or female, where there is being conscious of the deeper inner dimension we all carry, a space where there is a safe and loving space where we can look at our conditioning, a place where tears can cleanse our cheeks and heal the wounds, a place where all is welcomed and all is embraced, a place where we can finally come home …

What if God is one of us?

What if God is the good guy,
the bad guy, the stone, the dog?

What if God is what you like,
don’t like, project unto others?

What if God is what you see, hear,
smell, sense, feel and taste?

What if God is the earth, the sun,
the moon, the universe and beyond?

What if God is everything that comes,
woven in the fabric of your destiny?

What if God is you and me,
and all the others?

What if God is everything
including me, and everything in me?

Be still and Know I Am God …

Space

Where there is space, there is love. No space, no love. Where there is freedom, there is love: freedom from all conditioning, old mind patterns, beliefs in whatever words or authority. Are you willing to investigate ALL beliefs? Are you willing to investigate ALL stories you have about other persons, situations, objects? Without the willingness to shine the brightest light on the conditioning in you, what you call “freedom” , is the prison of your conditioning. You may think you are free. That freedom is limited by the four walls of the conditioning: the wall of what you learned, the wall of what you heard, the wall of what you saw and the wall of what you believe. Yes, you can paint the wall of the prison and make the prison more comfortable. You can make the prison so cozy that there is no reason what so ever to see that there is a prison. The prison is now hidden behind all things that give you pleasure: new furniture, a better job, more money, beautiful vacations, nice cloths, movies.

When willingness comes and ‘awakening’ begins, there is a wave going through you. It then may seem as if a veil has been lifted and you see, or rather feel what was present, all the time, deep in you. Then you know that what you did was not who you are. You knew that joy could not be found in better, faster, higher, further. That passes: better is relative, just like further, faster and higher. There is always someone who beats what you did or what you have, after a short period. When willingness has come and you see clearly that you are actually within the walls of the prison of your conditioning, the walls will start falling. There will be wholes and cracks. Bricks will fall down.  And through the holes, you will start to see that there is a world outside the walls of the prison. The wind comes in, the sun and rain. You feel the warmth and the cold. And it feels a little bit strange. The space outside is so vast, that it frightens and attracts you immensly at the same time. The space in you and in the prison connect with the space outside and you notice, deep in you, that you are that space, that vastness. How can you be anything else than space?

Investigating your conditioned mind, with all the openess there is asking you every question, is a sign that willingness has come to you. She shows you, so full of love, softly and full of compassion,, that walls that are built, can crumble down. Willingness comes to you when the time has come. And that time is always: now …

Old and New

What a joy
that I did precisely
what I had to do
in the “Old Year”

What a joy
that you did precisely
what you had to do
in the “Old Year”

What peace
that I will do precisely
what I have to do
in the “New Year”.

What peace
that you will do precisely
what you have to do
in the “New Year”.

May joy and peace
be with you
always …
