What if — That special someone! That special purpose!

Photo by Alfred Schrock on Unsplash

We are all waiting for that special someone to appear on the stage outside of us. We are all waiting for butterflies in our stomach and fireworks above us in the sky once this special someone arrives. Boom. The soulmate. Finally, we are able to meet that person made for us.

What if we are searching for someone, awaiting one’s arrival in our life, while this someone already exists? If this special someone has long been with us? What if this soulmate already shares its life with us since we have been born on this place called earth? What if…


An Astral Journey to Love.

I was lying on my back, the warm bedsheet wrapped around me. My skin was clearly feasible. My boundaries had me realize that I was I. At the same time, I was flying through space and time. Boundaryless. The bedsheet became part of me, I became the space around me. My clear boundarylessness had me realize that I was all that was surrounding me.

“Remember,” the voice spoke. “Remember who you are. And then, reconcile with the You. Become you. This is the only cure.”

The voice seemed to me like a bird chirping its most beautiful song.

“Enjoy the…


A conversation with Gaia.

“One day,” Gaia spoke, “one day humankind became aware of his physical and energetical weaknesses comparing himself to all other beings around, and as such of his mental strengths. He decided to trade. Intuition for intelligence. Trust for doubt. Encountering the unknown for controlling the known. Consciousness of what might be magic for knowledge of what can be explained. Open space for closed rooms. Being for becoming someone else. Timelessness for deadlines. Letting go for craving. Imagining for creating tight mindsets.

That was the first day for a humankind, that imprisoned himself into a self-made replica of Plato’s Cave. The…


Falling in love. With ourselves.

Dear human friend.

The spiritual path to enlightenment, what exactly is it? And what happens if I follow it? Or, if not? Does it actually make a difference? And if so, what would this difference be like? And what if, as others like to say, the path, the way to the goal, already IS the goal? Should I then bother at all? Have I not reached enlightenment the moment I started walking the path? …


Go, Play Life!

Imagine, you are swiping faces left and right on the screen of your mobile phone. Nothing special. Until you find yourself. Your face, your profile, one-hundred percent match. You are astonished and swipe yourself to the right. All of a sudden, you find yourself chatting with yourself. You ask the other you about its favorite hobbies or food and you start, becoming aware of your true inner feelings, thoughts and visions, because you can be honest to the other you. You need not to act as one you assume you should act like. You can be just you. Pure you…


Practicing Self-Love on behalf of All Beings.

“Every day, think as you wake up, say, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” The Dalai Lama

Tonight, I woke…


Home.

Last night, when I woke up and was still dreaming, I became aware of the rain asking me to allow it in. I got up out of my bed and opened the window. The rain entered in gratitude— drop by drop — into my room. As I sat on my bed, I watched the raindrops laugh and dance and fill every space around me, then I could feel them closer and closer, warm and cosy, touching my skin, entering my body, filling myself. Was it real? Was it a dream? I am not sure.

And yet, something made it…


I am so happy.

“Happiness that comes and never leaves is called the bliss of the Soul.” Dada Bhagwan

“I am so happy!” This I heard my son scream in joy when we spent the day by the Ocean. “I am so sad.” This is what he sobbed five hours later when we left again. “I am so happy!” This was my husband when his favorite soccer team scored the winning goal. “I am so disappointed!” This is what he grumbled a few months later when the soccer season had ended without the expected successful outcome. “I am so happy!” This was the joyful…


The earth will heal you and you will heal the earth.

“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. …


Unconditional — every moment.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” John Lennon
