Don’t believe what you think!

When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life.

We are identifying too much with thought and or our body.

I am guilty of this too but I am offering to take the step out of the false identification, the ego.

We don’t want to completely get rid of it, but we want to be able to recognize it and therefore not to be in charge of our life.

The person who claims to got rid of the ego, is fooled by the ego telling him or her that he is free of ego.

The ego is a master of finding new ways to return. If you take away one kind of identification the ego will quickly find another.

I identify myself with some things like my motorbike and my kites and my bass guitar and after realizing that I wanted to be more free from ego I thought if I sell all my stuff I would be free.

Ding dong and that’s when the ego starts to identify with me not having much stuff.

If you identify yourself with the things you posses and if you get more of that then you will be more. Yeah noooo

I find the best way to be in charge is to be in my body. What I mean by that is to consciously make the effort to feel the inner body to be aware of the energy inside.

The ego can only exist in the past, so being in your body puts you in a state of presence and there is no room for ego.

Above all, the ego isn’t personal. It isn’t who you are. If you consider the ego to be your personal problem, that’s just more ego.

Tricky right?

So we have the form of identification with items we have, which is pretty short lived. Soon the feeling of wanting more comes , in fact wanting is even more power for the ego. It can dwell on the wanting for much longer.

Then there is the body identification. You are what you look like!

Tough on the ones that look good, because once their looks fade they become miserable or depressed since they are identified by the way they look. But also people that have disabilities, imperfections or illness can make that into their form of identity.

So the best way to be is in the present moment.

Not always easy but if you keep meditating and become more aware of the ego in your day to day life you will start feeling much more happier and content.

I highly recommend to read Eckhart Tolle’s book which I have linked to The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment here, it has been a huge help on my journey and I am sure it can help you on yours.

Alrighty, time to jump in the ocean.

Ciao for now, Hendrik

The struggle is real or is it?

sunrise-1756274_640

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?

Continue reading “The struggle is real or is it?”

Are you gifted?

So here I am sitting in my apartment, wondering how the hell I ended up here again so quick.

Time flies when you are having fun right?!?

And fun we did have! Also quite time, cuddle time and conversation time.

Also big fat cat on my belly time!

cat.jpg

Nah he isn’t that fat just loves to get on top of you no matter what awkward position you might be in at the moment.

So what next you are probably wondering? Yeah I have it all sorted out in my head but I still need to turn it into reality. That is the part where I am noticing big behavior patterns coming up again and falling into bad habits.

So what do I do, how can I stop that from happening again. Hang on maybe let me clarify a bit more what I am actually talking about.

I know everyone has there own challenges in life and I believe our mission is to face them and to step through to a higher version (spiritually speaking) of yourself. There really is only two choices that we have to make, we can either grow/evolve into a different you or stay still/stagnate and repeat patterns, until we have done it so many times we finally change it or we take it underground.

I believe we then get reincarnated and have to do it all over again just in a different tool/body but hey that’s what I like to believe in.

One of my biggest challenges in this life is to feel worthy and create a healthy income that sustains my lifestyle. In this day and age there are so many possibilities to start your own business and make a living yet I was conditioned to believe that I need to exchange my time for money and work hard to make a good living and I have worked hard and I didn’t get a uni degree, I always felt like I am going to show them and become successful without a degree. There is a part of me that still believes that and wants that, but there is another part that say’s you can’t do that, you don’t have the qualification.

Generally we are lazy beings, beings of comfort oh yeah and it is so nice to be lazy sometimes, but then I have this part in my head that makes me feel guilty about not doing anything. I know deep down I can achieve anything I put my mind too. For crying out loud I moved to Australia to start a new life not knowing how I was going to do it but it all flowed because I was in alignment and I wanted it real bad.

I learned to speak English, not at school, no I quit English at 10th grade and replaced it with Italian. Not that I can still speak Italian but hey …I can do the English a little.

So I guess we have to learn to kick that part of doubt in the butt and focus on what our hearts deepest desire is because only then we can life a fulfilled life. It takes time and hard work and dedication, but it is a different kind of hard work because it is in alignment with your gift. We all have a gift but so many of us are too afraid to tap into that gift and take the leap.

I wish so much for my readers for myself that we gather our strength and take a step towards our deep down our truth our gift and make your world and the world around you a better place

I believe we can do it.

Ciao for now, Hendrik.

As always love to hear from you guys and answer your emails, leave a comment and a like.

 

 

Where am I now?

Woowza, timezone change and sleep pattern is screwed up! Why you ask?

Well if you have been following my blog, you most likely have discovered that it was a lot about heartbreak and growth. Becoming a better version of myself why also processing a break up that wasn’t for seen and has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Not necessarily in a bad way, well it just isn’t always easy, this life of ours and the relationships that come with it.

Anyway, so I am in Canada right now. Boom!

I have met up with this woman of mine. She wrote on her last letter to me that she loves me and that we will see each other again. This seemed far fetched for me, because I just couldn’t see it at the time (3 month ago now), since I guess I was also using my logic brain to figure things out.
It works perfect sometimes and other times its better to leave the logic brain at home.

Anyway, trust in it, is what she said! So i tried.

It’s quite amazing what the universe can move for you, if only you know what you want and are clear about it.

Well, here I am in the land of maple sirup and moose and bears, which so far I have only seen maple sirup, oh and red dear!!!! Its a very beautiful country from what I can tell after 3 days of being here and I was lucky enough to arrive at just the right time in autumn for when the leaves turn red and yellow and then they drop. This sometimes happens within a couple of days. But I got some good photos I think. I will post them later, since I forgot the camera cable at home.

What now you ask? Now it is the time to connect with the land and its people and particularly with my woman. Will I move here, will we move somewhere else or what is going to happen. First of all we need to trust in the situation and I think from where we have come from, with deportation and travelling half the world, man there is much more exciting stuff ahead of us.

Isn’t this amazing? We have this massive planet and yet it’s become such a small playground for some of us.

I have friends all over the world and it takes maximum a day to fly there and visit them.

So this love story isn’t over yet, which I am very happy about.

I guess the moral of this story is that no matter what happens if it is meant to happen it will happen, even though it is hard to see at times and maybe impossible for the mind to figure out but sometimes life changing circumstances ( like a car accident)  have to happen to bring you back to your loved ones. Oh yeah, that happened, luckily no one got injured just a big shock and a wake up call. So yeah the universe has interesting ways to bring you back together, so trust in it, trust in yourself and follow the pass of love and least resistance.

On that note, ciao for now,

The goal is not the destination

pexels-photo-190574

Hello everyone and thank you for reading my articles, it’s been an interesting¬† journey that finally led me to writing. First of all I believe it came from an inner drive to speak to the world and reach out and pass on knowledge that I feel can help some of you out there.

A lot of the times I ask myself, who am I to write to the people of the world, what do I know, I haven’t finished any degree nor did I stick to one particular industry long enough to become qualified in a skill. In Australia they call that a jack of all trades and a master of non. Doesn’t have the nicest ring to it, does it?

I didn’t want to just sit with that and accept it lightly, I feel most of my decisions in life were and are fear based, especially when it comes to money.

I am not giving up, I have read books like “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and “The Law of Attraction” By Jerry and Esther Hicks.

So there is something of big value just in that recognition of myself seeing that pattern and being able to change it. All the Jobs I have done I always started asking the universe for a certain amount of money I could make and that would usually attract a job. Luckily most of them allowed me to work with friends and take time off when I wanted. There was no super or insurance, if I fall sick I didn’t make any money.

No security just pay check to pay check, yes money was saved but it was never enough or was it?

There was also always an underlying frustration of being misunderstood in this world. I feel like there is soo much more than just doing the 9-5 grind and at the end of the day being totally exhausted all the creativity that was shining in the morning will be dull and gone by the end of the day.

Heartbreaking right? And that is how millions of us live everyday, to scared to leave the job that eats away on their soul because we don’t see where the next money is coming from and we are afraid of ending up on the street like so many others.

Why doesn’t kindness and love get valued in this world?

We are becoming more and more people, yet our jobs are becoming automised and replaced by robots, how is it that we still need to work. The system is screwed yes and 10 years ago I heard people saying something has to change something need s to change now.

10 years have gone past and look what happened? Donald Trump, that clearly states that we are f..ed!

I am not really into politics but I can see that this isn’t healthy, too many old people are still in power, what is with that?

So what can we do and what needs to happen to change something here? The internet is a great tool to connect everyone and make a move. Let’s start

Let’s see what happens when love hits the fan and not the other thing!

Send me some of your ideas on what this planet needs and what we can do to make this world a better place, on that note ciao for now!

Hendrik

Things I want to do with you

You are not here yet I feel loved. I wake up and have a glimpse of your eyes in my mind just the moment before I really get out of bed. I turn around to stay in that moment a little longer, just another second.

I want to meditate with you and do yoga after, then start the day with a nice breakfast and a good conversation with you. Only you talk the way you do to me, with that little accent of yours that just makes me melt away.

I want to hold your hand just for a while feel your fingers between mine becoming one with each others hand until I don’t know which fingers are mine.

I want to walk through the bush with you and hear the birds sing there songs, only then I am present.

Make a fire and play the drums while you look me in the eyes like you can see my soul sing, with such love.

I am coming back to you, to be with you one last time and forever eternity.

No more fear based decision, just throw ourselves into the wild and unknown beauty of love and let it unfold from the seed to the flower it is and back to the seed.

We are so powerful when in alignment, we can move mountains or we can fly through the air and land where we are wanted. No expectations just acceptance for that is what makes your heart sigh and breathe in relief.

I don’t search for I have found the seeker within.

I feel complete being incomplete.

How is it that when you take a final decision and in our case break something off, it brings you back together quicker than ever expected? It just shows that by holding onto something or someone you don’t allow space to be and to create the change that is needed for life to flourish.

So let go and be free my friends.

Ciao for now, HendrikIMG_7246

The Poem of the eternal Soul

pexels-photo-110854The poem of the eternal soul

I am in love with all of you

no judgment,

I know we are all going to be free one day, that we have in common.

Looking for who you are… trying not to get lost in the cosmic bar

where the drinks taste like heaven and the lights are dimmed.

No fights,

Just bliss and freedom
