If

If you can keep your head when all about you     Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,     But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,     Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being […]

Freedom of Choice

Nothing that happens to me can be bad. But you chose to hurt me. Now I got hurt. It shouldn’t have happened. The pain you gave to me shouldn’t have happened, cause you shouldn’t have done that to me. Here’s where it becomes complicated: nothing that ever happens to me can be bad because everything […]

End Scene

I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… …and then I […]

The Chosen

I am here […]

Becoming a professional life rider

How does it sound to hop on your car, put in the keys, sit in the co-pilot seat and say let’s see where this car takes me? It wouldn’t come as a surprise that one day you ask yourself: oops, how did I end up here? Or you drive in circles year after year; or […]

As the wind blows…

We are all kites waiting for the wind to blow, so we can fly high. One day we whisper our wish to the wind and, to our surprise, he replies with a lovely gust. When you learn the language of the wind, you cannot stop talking to him. He is happy to blow for those untethered souls […]

On Freedom

We can only escape from the world by outgrowing the world. Death may take man out of the world but only wisdom can take the world out of the man. As long as the human being is obsessed by worldliness, he will suffer from the Karmic consequences of false allegiances. When however, worldliness is transmuted […]

The Lesson

One day a school teacher wrote on the board the following: 9×1=7 9×2=18 9×3=27 9×4=36 9×5=45 9×6=54 9×7=63 9×8=72 9×9=81 9×10=90 When she was done, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her, because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following: “I wrote that […]
