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

If you can think it you can have it!

feet-1245957_640

How easy does it sound? Yet for some of us it is quite the struggle, am I right?

Never the less it is possible and with a lot of discipline we can achieve our biggest dreams.

The problem, I think a lot of us have is that we focus on the end result and we see the goal in our mind, whether it is financial freedom or the loving partner that we want to attract…

Too often we get overwhelmed buy the end goal and we completely forget about the beauty that lies in the journey there.

I feel that there has been a shift in consciousness, evolution hasn’t stopped.

Don’t fear the AI or the drones that drop the parcel on your doorstep. This planet is getting a lot more crazy than it is already. With that comes a challenge for us to stay in the now.

All the distractions we are putting on ourselves, be it mobile phones and advertisements, they are just a triggers for us to really focus on the inside and realize the external is a reflection of the chaos inside.

I choose to live in a small town surrounded by lush nature because it resonates better with my being. To me a city is like cancer. In fact, go to google maps and zoom out of the planet until its just continents and you see all these big cities that look like pulsating cells absorbing their surroundings to feed them.

It is interesting times and challenging times but, it is also the times of opportunity and chance. Never has it been easier to create an income from home, with the help of the internet. Never have we been closer connected yet further apart.

It has its pro’s and con’s, sure but let’s focus on the dream the purpose that is inside all of us, that some of us are living but not all.

So I am encouraging you to go and grab a piece of paper and think about what your purpose in this life is. But I want you to write it down not just once but a hundred times and change it up until it feels right.

I want you to feel it, to resonate with what you are writing until it makes you cry.

Yeah, you heard me right! “Hang on, I can only hear me, well that little voice in my head that is writing this so effortlessly.”

Yeah, so write and write it may only take you 20 min, if you are really in touch with yourself or it may take you an hour or 3.

The key is don’t give up. It’s not easy because your mind will trick you into thinking, oh yeah, found it now I can go back to watching TV or whatever meaningless thing I was doing before I started reading this awesome blog and tell my friends all about it.

Click here for my new instagram!

haha, so say no to your mind, you don’t need its help right now because you are trying to communicate with your soul.

Keep writing until you cry.

Keep writing until you cry.

Keep writing until you cry.

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.

 

 

What if I don’t do it?

What if I would have not followed my heart?

What if I would have stayed at home? How could my life be different? Well you will never know until you try.

Is it scary, yes for sure. Is the reward amazing?

Most likely. You don’t know until you have tried it and I highly encourage anyone that is not happy with the job they are in or the unfulfilled marriage the live, to listen to their heart and do the only thing that is worth doing.

Follow your dreams and fuck it. Just go for it, worst case scenario you get another shitty job you don’t like but you will never know what could have been if you didn’t try.

So fuck it, jump into the deep end and go for it. Life is too short to be doing things you don’t like.

Will it take discipline and hard work and dedication? Yep, but if you are in alignment with yourself it will also come very playful and with ease.

Was there ever any doubt to go to Canada?

Not on my side, but I had a few guys that seemed very concerned about my decision to go to Canada. I could only say, don’t worry I can only win in this situation, whether it is just a trip to Canada or actually a reunion and a new start with my lady.

I am sorry to disappoint the nay sayer’s but it was even more than a reunion and an amazing trip. It was a kick in my own ass not living in fear and worrying but trusting my heart and following it.

I still struggle in certain areas with that, but not when it comes to Lysanne!

So happy and excited for the future,

Ciao for now, Hendrik.

Dialog with me or myself

When I wonder what to write I write in wonders!

Songs are playing through my head,

is it ever quite up there?

So sit and do nothing, but why I ask if I can scrawl through instagram and watch motorbikes, tattoos and kitesurfing babes!

Do nothing, sit straight…wait I am not sitting straight you say?

It hurts.

It’s gotta be good when it hurts, right?

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.
