Building intimacy in how we meet (post-confinement)

In what way are we the same - you and me? How do I mirror you? What do you see in me, that reflects a part of you? I'm genuinely curious.

You see, you are me, cleverly disguised as you. And I am you, cleverly disguised as me.

I need you, so, to see and know myself. 

What if we constantly replaced the questions, "In what way am I different to you?" or "In what way are you different to...

Them Emotions

authenticity freedom May 16, 2020

Arrrr! to those gnarly emotions that sneak under the radar and slowly diminish my life force, joy and vitality.

Arrr! to those clever strategies that have me bypass feeling all those moments when something hurt or scared me.

And suddenly I'm feeling flat, tired, bloated, self-doubting, uninterested, uncaring and I don't know why! Arrrrrr, I say!

I see it. My energy got stuck again by smoothing...

The change starts with me

authenticity May 16, 2020

This long period of home confinement has helped me to see even more clearly my habits, patterns and addictions that don't serve me or anyone else. I know them well but I always find many excuses to let myself off the hook. Bleh!

So I want the world to change, eh? Well it starts right here lady!

No more excuses. I have the chance to meet these patterns in the eye, love them a little bit, forgive...

Peeking out from confinement (part 4)

In my last post I said there is so much to play for and so much potential. There is equally so much at risk.

What I choose now matters. How I live matters. What I think and say and do matters.

As I peek out to the uncertainty beyond, lovingly holding the parts of me that have been feeling so safe and comforted during confinement (see parts 1 and 2), it can be all too easy to fear what is...

Peeking out from the comfort of confinement (part 2)

There is a part of me that has felt comforted by obligatory confinement, and fears coming out.

This part of me is deeply sensitive and is often not seen or heard in a world that rushes by so loudly, even aggressively. This part has often needed to create armour and masks to hide behind, to feel strong enough to go out.

This part fears being judged, rejected, betrayed, humiliated, and abandoned,...

These are indeed unprecedented times of change. May we all find the place of ease and trust within, in humanity and in life.

Showing up with our hearts open

Today I will participate in the Anti-5G demonstration in Geneva and happening internationally. As we experience more and more grass-root marches, demonstrations and protests, with people everywhere calling for more respect and care for life, I ask myself how to take action and show up for what feels right, hold clear boundaries and keep my heart open.

It is very easy to do...

The gift of pain hiding in depression - a poem

authenticity Aug 29, 2019

 

It has a strong pull on me, the zombie state
It’s so easy to belong
Such a generous welcome into accepted norms
Succumbing to distractions I got tricked
By my own mind
I thought it was my own choice
Betrayed, manipulated by an invisible force
At first it didn’t feel good, discomfort in my body
The weight of a heavy cloak
Aggressions of a modern kind
I contracted, angry, fighting,...
