Infinite

Infinite

There are an infinite number of
questions, answers, possibilities, solutions

Identification with one
means excluding all others

Excluding all others
means limiting yourself

Limiting yourself
means hurting yourself

You are without limits;
that is why living anything else
hurts like hell …

Daily bread

IMG_3333

When you eat
your daily bread
What do you do
after you have swallowed it?

Do you turn your oesophagus on?
Do you command your stomach to do its job?
Do you convince your pancreas to make enzymes?

What if all the words you hear ..
What if all the thoughts that come to mind ..
What if the whole world you perceive ..

Is just that:
Daily bread

You take it in
and it does
what it has to do

somewhere in you ..

And when action arises,
you will notice that

And you will act or not

And when silence arises,
you will notice that

And truth
And love
And trust
And …

Daily bread:
take it in and leave the rest to God …

No word

No word

When you think you are something:
a christian, a muslim, a jew, a buddhist, a hindu,
an atheist, a carpenter, a painter, a writer, a friend,
a man, a woman, a child, a mother, a father, …

And when you believe that you are what you think you are,
You can go inside and do this meditation:

Without using your
thoughts, memories, associations, perceptions, emotions,

are you a christian, not a christian or neither

Be still and wait what comes up …

And do it with the next and the next and the next …

No word can describe what you are;
no word; no word; no word …

Don’t be afraid …

Don’t be afraid
of the dark
and don’t be afraid
to love it

Don’t be afraid
of the light
and don’t be afraid
to find it

Don’t be afraid
of the pain
and don’t be afraid
to meet it

Don’t be afraid
of the joy
and don’t be afraid
to express it

Don’t be afraid
of the stillness
and don’t be afraid
to share it

Don’t be afraid
of You
and don’t be afraid
to LIVE it …

Speaking Truth

Sometimes, when we ask someone a question, they get furious. They act out, like: “As if you didn’t know that”, “You should know by now”, “Why do you ask this question?”, “You know why I will not answer it”.

When we ask a question, the other one may answer or not answer. When people ask us a question, we answer or don’t answer.

What happens inside of us, when we don’t answer? Could it be that we don’t want to hear the answer ourselves? Could it be that we believe that the other don’t deserve to get an answer from us? Could it be that we are afraid that the other one disapproves of the answer?

Could it be that we need some more time to listen in silence to hear the answer?

“I hear what you ask, and I need some time to go inside and find what comes to mind. Please ask me again later”.

Most of the time that is the case. I am not talking about: “What are we having for breakfast”, although it might apply to that also…

When someone asks a question
and we receive it
in the silence of our heart
the heart will answer
with the silence of
the speaking truth …
