The struggle is real or is it?

I don’t know about you but I am freaking out sometimes and only because my mind allows me to. I wake up in the same bed, with the same roof over my head, food is on the table and I am surrounded by amazing people.

So really nothing to complain, right?

According to United Nations 1.6 billion don’t even have a proper house and 844 million don’t have decent water to drink.

When I read these numbers I wonder what I am concerned about in my life?

Why can’t I always be happy?

When the shit hits the fan, turn it off. I mean seriously this expression is one of the funniest in my opinion, I am quite a visual person and that just screams gross.

But I guess what I am trying to say is when you feel like the worlds weight is on your shoulders, go and play. Play like a child, go for a swim, surf or ride your bike around sometimes just hang with your friends and talk nonsense, because there is enough seriousness in this world. It is important to laugh and have a good time. Life is supposed to be fun and man I love to make my friends laugh. I don’t even care if they laugh about me or at me, as long as I get a laugh out of them, that makes my day.

Is this deriving from a small form of depression, yes maybe… I feel like there is so much pressure coming from everywhere, like I want all these things in my life to make me feel better, but really I know it’s all inside. But when my reality doesn’t match with my thoughts, then what?

It goes think of the way you want your life to be and it will manifest, but what if you can’t control your thinking? What if you wake up with great intensions and then an hour later you are again just caught up in your own drama. This isn’t where I want to be, why is life unfair to me? I do see that there is ways to get out of it but doubt comes to mind and I am back listening to my ego and forgetting how amazing I am. We all are!

Do you feel you have more to give than just getting up every morning at the same time and doing the same thing all day with people you may not even like very much, yet you are so scared of the step out of that comfort zone into the unknown, because you know every week, or every month you get your paycheck and you need to pay of the debt you accumulated over the years just to fit in. Buying stuff to impress people you don’t even know.

Why is it that we care so much about the way other people think of us? 

Shouldn’t we be looking at ourself first and just do what seems right to us. Yeah maybe it is totally out of the norm, but then again what norm? Let’s make your own norm, reality, world. Sure we have to play the game and if you are angry or struggling to be in that game of capitalism. Save up and get out asap. I lived in a van for a couple of month and I tell you it is very liberating to be able to go anywhere you like and not just be restricted to one place.

Is it freedom to have a big house and three cars and a dog and a cleaner and and and…

Recently I traveled through Sri Lanka and over there they have cows and goats as pets and not just one dog they have a whole herd of them. The big thing was the community they have. No one is ever alone. In our world we find ourselves sitting behind screens and on the monitor we are so connected with everyone, but are we really? I often find myself more lonely than connected.

This world has seen enough hate, lets start a movement of LOVE again. Let us connect and love one another! Of gay or straight it’s LOVE the purest form of all.

Ciao for now,

Hendrik

About Anger

One day Buddha walked through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him.
“You have no right teaching others” he shouted. “You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake.”
Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”
The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered “It would belong to me because I bought the gift.”
The Buddha smiled and said “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, than the anger falls back on you. You are the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.”
The man looked all confused.
The Buddha continued “If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others,” The Buddha smiled,
“everyone is happy.”
