You Are Not Alone

There comes a time when your direction in life is no longer a matter of preference - it's more like a giant calling. The calling could have been there all the way, but there's so much we need to experience first, so many roads to travel, so many people to meet, or not... Until the time [...]

Living alone (or feeling alone) often comes with having a lot less exchange with other people than a more family/community centered life has. It means having to be self-sufficient, in beautiful ways and in challenging ways. It means that your energy system has to be more self-supporting too.You're not being constantly energized (or depleted for that [...]

I've been traveling alone for 4 weeks or so - and none of it is like I expected. Except, perhaps, that it is indeed as I did expect, about finding the less known me. Which in itself isn't all that interesting for the world :-) - but then again, there are some "lessons" that I'm learning [...]

Recently, after I boldly wrote "There are thousands of ways in which we can find and connect with others, if and when so inspired", a dear subscriber asked me to be more specific and share some of those ways. Fair enough! and it started something... First I decided - because I believe it to be true - that [...]

Even if you may want to, you cannot take anyone into the very source of your being. Even if some of it can be shared, the essential communication with your soul remains your own internal experience. And yet, sometimes it is the presence of others that creates the sort of energetical support where you can open that inner [...]

Back in the days, as I was going through the first stages of loneliness, I was constantly struggling with a mental and emotional trap. Again and again, unknowingly, I was  caught in between two "cog wheels", reinforcing each other.The first cog-wheel, was the pain  and the overwhelm of chronic loneliness in itself. Like a mantra, I was saying to myself, confirming it [...]

It's modern times, enlightened times. What once was a secret and later "alternative" is now main stream. Mindfulness for example. And the universal advise: "Forget the past. Live in the present moment. Don't worry about the future." It's so very true. And it's easier said than done, though, don't you find? We've all had these [...]

When you feel all alone and lonely, and when it looks like it will never change (it can be such a convincing feeling, even if it's not true)... when you feel defeated and hopeless ... how do you move forward? If you're like most people, you try to figure it out by asking questions. Important questions (that's how they [...]

These words came to me on the New Year morning, in a meditation: "It's time to take your traveling boots on". They came along with a vision of me giving the key to my apartment to a stranger and taking off on a solo journey with no final destination. 3+ months later this is becoming a reality. Although, not as [...]

No matter how badly I've confused myself or if I worked too hard or if it's one of those days when I'm challenged to my limits... joy is still there. The problem is,  I can't feel it! That's Okay. I can just go for a walk instead (to the beach, the lake, the woods, the park). There, without me [...]
