Behind the Masquerade

I just caught myself doing it again; needing to know it all better than others. This is such an old pattern of mine… For so long I thought there was no other way and that I simply had to. It was a matter of survival to claim my space, a way of protecting myself and this went completely unconscious. It was also the way I had been taught; to be quick and smart…

Sitting for Sanity

Meditation… often I get questions about what it is and how it works. There are quite some misunderstandings about it. I have explored it for over 10 years now, had my times of liking it but mostly disliking it, a lot. Even though I was so attracted to the benefits of it…

These Hurts

Oh how I’ve been running. In a hurry to get somewhere, or so it seemed, but where to? That I couldn’t get clear. Chasing things I convinced myself was so very important.

Daring to Die

Julia had often wondered when this moment would come and how it would turn out to be. There had been plenty time to prepare herself and she could have arranged important matters for her loved ones, but she hadn’t. Like everyone else, she simply didn’t think about it as she got caught up in the drag of days that turned into months and into years. But now the moment had come, it wasn’t that easy…

Morning walk

The new day is starting, the graceful silence has made way for traffic noises and loud voices. Brief moments of eye contact, even smiles on unknown faces, these are such sudden little graces...

Little Magic

Magic and inspiration can be found in such small simple things! Finally the weather is getting warmer I felt called back to my favorite park to do yoga like I did there the entire last summer. But distracted and busy with all sorts of things I ignored the feeling and before I knew it the evening started to fall. Still I couldn’t resists the urge so grabbed my things and got in a taxi straight to the park...
