Vulnerable

Discovering in total openess
Speaking from deep stillness

Giving from total vulnerability
Receiving in total connectedness

Lets gentle softness surface
like fluffy clouds in midnight sky

Floats through the open windows
like little Whitsun flames

Gives boundless vulnerability
to You as Me
to Me as You …

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

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 …

Expectation

When we decide
what our destination is
could we be wrong?
Who is deciding?
What is a destination?

When we stop and feel
what the inner guide tells us
about a direction we can take,

Can we then feel the aliveness,
the unexpectednesss, the unknown,
the adventure, the spontaneity,
the openess, the playfulness?

Expectation of an outcome
is wanting the outcome to happen.

To take one step
in a direction
makes that step
the most important thing
there is
in our life

And then we feel
that the journey of life
is just
one
step …
