are living like in a human zoo, fenced in by
our beliefs and we are afraid, to go beyond
these boundaries. However, it is possible –
not always very easy- but still possible.
Freedom begins within.
fleas and humans have in common.
you want to train or condition fleas, you put
them in an empty jam jar and close the lid.
The fleas naturally jump upwards and hit the
lid with their heads. It doesn’t take them
long to realise that this is a dead end. Now
you can remove the lid from the jam jar –the
fleas now know that this is “the end of
their world.” None of the fleas will attempt
to jump higher. It will take generations until
one courageous flea grants himself permission
to jump as high as his heart tells him. And
that is the beautiful thing about the heart,
it can’t be conditioned! When
will you give yourself permission, to be
yourself and to live your own life? When you
become quiet, when the many voices in your
head disappear, then you will detect a quiet
voice: Yours. Now you can leave the herd
without suffering, because you know that you
must take your own individual path. Come and
follow... to yourself.
you ever watched a young child chase
butterflies or collect sea shells on the beach?
The child’s eyes radiate. It experiences
every moment filled with wonder. Every flower,
every stone... everything is meaningful.
Everything is a miracle for the child. The
child is living in paradise. That is not to
say that paradise is a special place, it is
the clear, natural state of our consciousness.
Paradise cannot be found “over there
somewhere,” it is always in the “here and
now.” A child only knows the present.
That’s why children have something that the
grown ups have lost. This something needs to be found again, because it’s the most precious
thing in the world: Our true selves.
– the root of all evil
child’s clarity disappears very quickly,
because it’s originality and true nature are
not compatible to the interests of this world.
Every human is confronted with the fact that, the
world is a nuthouse, which the child
senses from a very early age: It’s being and
society’s intentions do not match. The world,
the people are split, crazy, everyone is
somebody else, but not themselves. In order to
survive, the child chooses the path of
conformity. It soon gets lost within thousands
of things and forgets it’s origins.
are taught “the language of the world” at
an early age, but at the same time we lose the
ability to trust in ourselves, to express our
feelings honestly and to really be
ourselves. If you were to meet this same
child, which was once full of astonishment, 20
years later and look into it’s eyes, you
would find confusion instead of clarity. A
fine dust-layer of beliefs, judgements and
conditioning smothers the consciousness. This
layer gets thicker and thicker and begins to
define life. Compromise becomes daily routine
– and lifestyle. This is the latest point at
which we are no longer living as, the person
we really are. Only us humans do this to
ourselves, and others. The animals, the plants,
all live naturally. All creatures, apart from
humans, who are the only creatures that can
decide to go against their nature – which is
the beginning of all suffering and the cause
of all illnesses.
live life in the wrong place, hurts
of living naturally and free, we are bound by
thousands of invisible ropes. We react
unconsciously according to old, outdated
programmes. We sleep-walk through our so
called life, as if wearing straight-jackets,
that give us just enough air, so as not to
suffocate spiritually and psychologically. We
are trapped in behaviour patterns, habits or
in ideals installed from an outside influence.
And our dreams have been lost somewhere along
the way. This is why we can’t be ourselves
and definitely can’t be healthy and happy.
When our lives are made up of, meeting other
people’s expectations, when we can’t say
“No” and when we permit others to
interfere with our lives, or cut us off from
freedom, when we try to please all the people
all the time, then we are in the “wrong
place.” Then our life is dying a slow death,
it’s just waiting for death.
course we can hide our dissatisfaction and
fool the others by pasting a smile on our face
and telling everyone how well we are doing,
even though we want to cry, but we know that
our laughter isn’t real, that our life is
empty, that we are just fooling ourselves. We
can fool others, but not ourselves. Can a
person be happy when he lives as somebody else?
The results are dissatisfaction, an
inner emptiness and suffering. But hardly
anyone asks themselves seriously: Why am I
suffer when we forget who we really are, when
we want to be like the others, when we conform
to a sick multitude, when we value ourselves
through the eyes of others. We suffer when we
lose our real goals, when we don’t know the
meaning of our life, when we can’t realise
our life’s vision, or reject ourselves fully
or in part. We suffer when we don’t value
our own uniqueness, when we have to beg for
confirmation, acknowledgement and attention,
when other people’s opinions are more
important, when we hide our origins and wear
masks, when we play roles that are not meant
for us, when we do things in life that we
never wanted to do. We suffer when we are
together with people that we don’t want to
be with (not only in the area of partnerships),
when we blindly imitate what others show us,
when we believe that we must accept things as
they are, when we don’t run our own lives (which
means others are running them). We suffer when
we vote against nature and live artificially,
when we don’t govern our own thoughts, but
are governed by them, when we hold on to the
past and can’t let go, when we expect others
to make us healthy, rich or happy. We suffer
if we let ourselves be programmed or
manipulated, spend most of the time thinking
and live unconsciously, or when we use up our
life energy through worry, doubt or fear.
we choose again and again to suffer!
We suffer, because we choose again and again
to suffer, because we always repeat the "Comfortable”
yesterday. It seems safe because we are
familiar with it. So we “cruise” most of
the time “on automatic pilot” in the wrong
direction, away from ourselves and our
fulfilment. And unfortunately, this "tradition"
is passed on from one generation to the next.
is a wake up call! Are you really alive? Do
you live consciously? Do you like your life?
not, then do something! Change it, if you want
to. Wake up from the nightmare, that most
people dream. As long as you follow others and
subconsciously live as them, you aren’t
living, the others are living you. To live subconsciously means, that your subconscious thoughts have you
You don’t even appear in your own
life, and if by chance you do, then only in a
minor part. However, this isn’t living, but
sleeping with eyes open and at best, barely
surviving. To barely survive is not the goal.
There’s a whole lot more waiting for you and
inside you. Come on, follow yourself! Even if
your intellect hesitates, your heart knows the
way. The heart cannot be conditioned, only the
head. Trust yourself!
are free. You choose, who you live as.
Choose wisely. Be yourself and live
your life- that is your birth-right and your
destiny. Every person, including you, carry
visions that want to be realised. To live
these visions as the real you, herein lie
happiness and fulfilment.
our own choice
society doesn’t let anyone be, who they want
to be. They don’t make it easy for one to
blossom. But society is not almighty and
can’t force anyone to follow them, but only
make “offers.” But you can say: “No
thanks.” Ultimately, everyone is responsible
for themselves and their own lives. Each
person decides for themselves, whether to live
authentically, or to conform. Everyone decides
for themselves whether they are really
conscious, alive and free, whether they will
change this condition of non-freedom, or
whether they are as mechanically predictable
as the workings of a machine. This decision is
made afresh every living moment, consciously
or subconsciously. We always have the choice.
We just forget, that we can make our own
choices! Of course, it’s easier to go with
the flow, but at what price? A life without
joy? Without love? Without inner peace?
Without poetry in your heart? Without laughter?
Without meaning and without fulfilment? And
what consequences does this bring with it?
What results from this for the future? For all
consciously: Choose now.
you had the choice – and you do have –
between drama and joy, which would you choose?
people answer automatically: Joy. However, The
same dramas repeat themselves again and again
in their lives – in partnerships, at work,
with health or financially. This choice is
obviously not made consciously. These people
often have the feeling, that a part of
themselves are busy sabotaging their
intentions and goals. That’s why a lot give
up (Too early).
you understand the deeper reasons and want to
realise your choice of joy, the first, most
important step is called: Letting go of what
doesn’t make you happy. Letting go of what
doesn’t belong in you. The second step
contains, your ability to recognise and
realise your true vision, in other words, to
create the circumstances in your life, that
correspond to you.
here the moral: Once upon a time on a ship’s
journey: A parrot was bored, but was pleased
to discover that a monkey was also on board.
In order for them to pass the time, the parrot
suggested, “Let’s play hide and seek.”
The monkey asked: “How does that work?”-
“Real easy: You close your eyes, stand in
front of a wall and count to a hundred. While
you’re doing that, I will hide myself, then
when you get to a hundred, you look for me.”
No sooner said than done. But what happened
was, just as the monkey reached a hundred, the
ship exploded. The parrot managed to jump onto
a plank, which was floating in the ocean.
After a while he caught sight of the monkey,
who was swimming towards him with the last of
his strength. As soon as the monkey had
clambered onto the plank he turned to the
parrot and said, “Stupid game!”
soon as you get the feeling that your life is
a “Stupid Game”, it’s time to change
something. Perhaps there is a free seat for
