There is so much magnificence

Dear Courageous Soul,

Today my heart was sore. Everything felt so wrong. And then I met those two in my garden:20140906_physalis_transparency_beauty_fragil

They made me stop in awe. Isn’t that magnificent? Art of nature. Pure beauty!

My body relaxed, my jaw relaxed, my shoulders relaxed. Pause. Breathe. Admire the miracle. Admire beauty. Admire the mystery.

And then I let my awareness drop into my body. Come back home. Become aware of the mystery that I am.

The split vanished for some moments. Separation truly became an illusion. Resting in Divine Presence.

And then life went on. With its ups and downs. With its contractions and expansions. With its darkness and light. That’s how life is.

What makes you slip into the masterpiece? What reminds you of the Mystery of Existence? What brings you back home?

With love,
Uli – your Soul Sister

I have a dream

gelbe_blume_mit_viel_bluetenstaengelnI dream of a world in which all beings walk their path full of confidence.

That’s why I follow my longing to bring people closer to the mystery of their existence: Each and every person brings in an amazing contribution to evolution with her / his uniqueness – day by day, in the large scale as in the small scale.

My work aims to make people aware of their contribution to the success of the world. In this way they perceive meaning in their life and experience appreciation. They feel empowered, they blossom! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Innocence

Dear Courageous Soul,

The Innocence in me sees the Innocence in you.

weiße_dolde_duftend_fruehlingNo matter how hard we all try to protect our innocent and vulnerable core behind thick clothes or walls, this beautiful loving essence continues to shine brightly. These True Colors are who we really are at the core of our being.

We have so many good reasons that make us think or feel that we have to protect ourselves and our innocence. We have all made our experiences that made us believe that it is not safe to live from this place of innocence deep down in us.

Our Innocence is nothing we need to overcome, deny, or hide away. Our Innocence is a pure source of joyfulness and trust. In this place we feel interconnected, we feel being met by the benevolent presence of Life. In this place failure and separation don’t exist – not even the notion of it. In this place we are completely immersed in our dharma, in our true being – we feel one with the Mystery of Life.

Feel into your own inner depth – right now. Can you feel this innocent loving part in you? Smiling at the Mystery of Life in awe and wonder – and at the same time with such an intrinsic sense of being “right”. All is well, this is a friendly mystery.

About a year ago I promised myself that I would cherish my Innocence and live my life from this place of Innocence. I admit that I don’t manage every day, but I have my reminders and stay rooted in this intention. I return to my Innocence consciously. I invite you to join me in this practice. If living from the place of Innocence within became a movement, a human attitude, a human pattern, oh, how much easier and simpler life would be! Trusting, loving, connected, playful, … aligned with the Mystery of Life.

The Innocence in me sees the Innocence in you.

Silence and Growth

Dear Courageous Soul,

IMG_2424There are these days when you draw back into your own being. Life energy is directed to inward matters. On the outside you become silent, very silent.

But on the inside a whole world appears. Your system is flooded by fireworks of associations and interrelations. Aha experiences occur, pictures take form. What a rich time! Growth is happening.

Usually we overlook this precious time of development and increasing awareness. People ask us: “Everything OK? You’re so silent and withdrawn.” But you just don’t have the words to describe the precious new wisdom just sprouting into your being.

When you recognize yourself as inseparable part of the vast Mystery of Life, all these “intense times” become time of apprenticeship. Insights (cognitive, emotional, mental, spiritual, …) are sparks of increased awareness and consciousness. Your horizon widens.

You are on your path of dharma. You get the lesson. You celebrate Life. You bow to the Beauty of all-that-is. I celebrate you, precious soul. I am so happy to walk this planet with you! ❤ ❤

Connected in the vast Mystery of Life,
Uli, your soul sister

Love, oh Love

There are days when I “see” that literally everything is made out of Love.

Work is love made visible. (Khalil Gibran)

For win-win-situations this is easy to see. And there are cases when Love takes an ugly, dirty, scary mask. But behind this mask Love is at work.

20111011_baumwollaehnliche_pflanzeThe fundamental Love holding the whole universe is not always pink, glittery, shiny, and radiant – as we often anticipate that an enlightened state of being would look like. Love can be found in the messy, contracted, and even hard life.

So when I start doubting this fundamental Love and its existence, I take a step out, I lean back for a few moments. I focus on how could Love make itself visible in this very situation? What or whom does this person love – what could be the motivation for her or his behavior?

The art is to stay as open as possible regarding the answers. It could be love for oneself. It could be love for one’s child. It could be love for power. It could be love for one’s dead grandparents. It could be love for money. It could be love for disregarded groups of our society. It could be love for one’s own life. It could be love for an abstract principle. It could be love for a good life. It could be love for the orang-utans in the rainforest. It could be love for music. It could be love for something completely different.

The second ingredient of art is to refrain from judging this motivation, instead to stay focussed on Love: see Love working through us, watch how Love manifests itself here and there, again and again, everywhere and always. The art is to keep our eyes on Love.

What an amazing spiritual practice it is to witness Love at work expressing itself as Life.

Your dharma is your uniqueness

huna_grafik_neuThe word dharma points to what is often called the cosmic order. It does not mean that you are a puppet on a string carrying out some plan made up by some higher being.

This term rather wants to remind us that we are inseparable from the invisible mystery that holds all-that-is. You and me and every form – we all are embodiments of the vast consciousness striving to birth itself over and over again. Your dharma is your “role” in the Divine Choreography of Life, your spice, your flavor, your uniqueness, your thread, your specific vibration, your fingerprint, your unique set of qualities, your medicine, your gift.

There are so many words we use to (try to) describe this ineffable unique quality of our being. They all show us the way to our own divine nature, our interconnectedness with all-that-is.

Rather than making up the meaning of our lives, we could ask the Mystery of Life: How do you want to express yourself through me today? How do you want to use my unique flavor for the good of all beings? What song do you want to play on the instrument that I am?

This is where you are

IMG_5159Once we commit to consciously and fully live our dharma, life changes. We feel full of energy, motivation, enthusiasm, love, esprit, joy, freedom, … But still it is a human life. “After expansion contraction will come.” (Chameli Ardagh) I promise you: There will be days where you might feel stressed, overwhelmed, unmotivated, tired, full of doubt, fearful, sad, …

Whatever you feel: This is where you are RIGHT NOW. This is where you are to live your dharma RIGHT NOW. This is the place from where you’ll take the next step RIGHT NOW. Yes, we prefer to feel good and expanded instead of stuck and shrunk. But this is our decision. Every situation, every thought, every feeling is holy in the Divine Eyes.

On days when you feel expanded, you probably won’t read these lines, because you are in the flow anyway! 🙂

On days when you feel contracted: What if you’d lean back for a moment, let go of all concepts of how-it-should-be and adore the mystery that you are alive? Let yourself be taken away by the miracle that the sun shines (even tough it might be hidden behind clouds). Find a way to acknowledge the miracle of how your body works. Isn’t it amazing that those fingers can move, that you can feel the breeze on your skin, that your eyes read these words, that your heart beats? Isn’t it amazing that the Earth moves? Isn’t it astounding and mind-blowing that the Universe exists?

“After contraction expansion will come.” (Chameli Ardagh) I promise you: There will be days where you are in the flow again, where you feel deeply aligned with the Divine Choreography of Life, where you feel like flying.

It is up to us to let go of the resistance and align ourselves with the Flow of Life.
