all there is

As one wave holds all qualities of the ocean, so does awareness bear all experiences. No separation can ultimately be found. C

welcoming life

By not running away from the present moment with all its challenges one surrenders to the free play of mind and therefore welcomes all aspects of appearance. C

the very present moment of all there is

Sometimes it seems that only when we stand in the midst of it all and conceptualize nothing true surrendering can take place. Whatever wants to enter is welcomed, whatever wants to be released dissolves. This process can’t be forced, nor can’t it be initiated, as these impulses as we can call them come from beyond…

the ego’s dance

Ego chooses the seemingly easy path of pulling and pushing between attachment and detachment which takes place in the terrain of the known for the most part. The inherent insight – call it inner wisdom, intuition or mind’s nature – instead chooses the path of recognizing the illusionary and therefore remembers itself. – C

the ever changing moment called life

In watching the nature pulsating, transforming, observing the cycles of seasons you get to understand the motion of life. Nature does not hold onto but instead surrenders to the natural flow of change. Change lives within nature, as change lives within us. There is ultimately no separation. With this knowing all resistance to reject impermanence…

jumping into the unknown

Jumping into a new life chapter can be frightening. One merges with the unknown and surrenders to it. A certain amount of trust is necessary in order to jump effortlessly. It’s an inner journey for the most part that is then interweaving with what is experienced. Analyzing ones fears and exploring them is helpful to…

freedom from conditioning

There is a choice in following old thought patterns and leaving conditioning that might be destructive. One can cut through ones story, one is identifying oneself with and therefore appears limiting. Stop following the thread of thought if you know where it leads you. What is necessary is to take a moment, become still, witness,…

where does the feeling of ‘longing’ come from?

Whenever ‘longing’ is experienced, especially when it comes along with painful emotions, the concept of separateness / duality appears as solid. Whenever you are ‘at home’ in the deep sense of the meaning, no ‘longing’ comes to the surface instead there is the collapse of duality. This can be felt in the union with another…

who are you without your story?

What story is following you like a shadow through your life? With what story are you identifying yourself with? Holding up a storyline can be exhausting. Letting go of a story seems to require courage. There are different ‘tools’ you can use to soften up the identification with old thought patterns and conditioning. Bodywork for…

orgasm & the collapse of duality

Why is the very climax of an ORGASM so APPEALING? Besides that DESIRE gets satisfied and hormones get released, it seems that ‘in the very moment’ the ‘I’, or in other words the ‘identification with a Self’ loses it grip, gets softened up and eventually dissolves for a moment. There is a touch with Non-duality…

the act of letting go

Letting go of old stories is just painful from the ego perspective, as ego’s nature is to stick to old thinking patterns and to avoid the unknown. It can be frightening to ask oneself what and who we are without all the stories we grew up with, with all the concepts and ideas about ourselves…

the dance of life

In my life I have often used spiritual philosophy to re-enforce the denial of the human experience. Same as I consciously kept myself trapped in human conditioning to avoid spiritual experiences. Starting to explore the so-called ‘spiritual path’ often leads one into more fragmentation because it separates and devides one seemingly into two parts.  …
