Schmerz und Freude sind in unsere Welt der Dualität zwei Teile eines Ganzen. Das eine kann nur in der Präsenz des anderen bestehen. Eigentlich ist es ein Segen wenn man (noch) im Stande ist um tiefe Emotionen zu erfahren. Bei den meisten ist dies nur eher unfreiwillig der Fall und man spricht von großem Unglück oder emotionaler Instabilität wenn Burnout und Depressionen uns heimsuchen. Kann doch unsere Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft nur mit immer perfekt produzierenden Menschen funktionieren, die wenn möglich mit stolzen Lächeln beweisen wollen, gerne ein Rädchen in einer stetig wachsenden Wirtschaft zu sein die erpicht ist uns Wohlbefinden zu verkaufen.
Doch eigentlich ist es ein Segen, das Emotionen es uns bei Zeiten unmöglich machen um noch ‚normal‘ zu funktionieren. Es gehört zur Perfektion des Lebens.
AS YOUR BODY AND LIFE FALLS APART….
Sometime one’s life is challenging in ways, that of our body and/or our life as we have lived it before nothing is left. Physical and emotional pain seem to have same shifts in a 24/7 inexhaustible determination.
Illness and losses open up never known pains and also strengths. In the first place it looks as if they want to destroy us, yet what it actually destroys is our resistance to what we might never have felt in our lives before.
In my case it’s vulnerability and fear….emotions that have never come up in my life. As a strong, vibrant and adventurous woman I faced every thinkable situation in my life with open arms. Continue reading

Time is a rare commodity. With the excuse of lack of time, we rush from one place to the other, try to do as much as we can within a given timeframe. Productivity and efficiency are values we seem to accept automatically as being normal and needed. We need to organize our time, to have some time for ourselves….to relax, socialize, take care of our body. Calculate time for our relatives, our children and our spouse. Time is a rare commodity and time is likely our most abused commodity as well. How did this happen, that time has become rare and so scarce?
We have become greedy with time, we act as if we are starving and we grab every little moment as if our life depends on it. It’s true actually that we are starving, but not because of lack of time and also not because we do too much, we actually could do even much more if we simply would change our idea of time.
Here we experience time…
Did you ever stand in a supermarket in the line of the cashier? Ever waited for an airplane that was delayed? Those are the moments where ten minutes can be like an hour and an hour like a day. Did you ever ask yourself why this might be the case? Can it be because you had no control, no influence on how to get it done faster? You just had one option: to wait.
It’s my experience that the moment you lose control and you are not able to influence of what to do next simply because you can’t do anything right now towards controlling the next moment, time runs very slowly. Of course the average person starts complaining when things don’t move fast enough or try to push things……losing control of the next moment seems to be a huge fear and for that controlling what will happen the next moment has become our focus.
I create my life….
And controlling is not controlling, yes? We call it creating these days: I create my life! That sounds much nicer. We create our life ─ which means if we are honest, we plan our life. For what? A bit of happiness, a feeling of having made a difference? So many of us run after a fulfilled life and end up with just a full life.
So my promise of the header of this blog, how to have all the time of the world? It’s simple: don’t think of time. And I will not come with this thing of be in the moment, be present in the moment. No, not today. Today I say: simply don’t think of time.
Can you forget about the commodity of time and just do what you do? Likely you can’t, because a day just has 24 hours and there is so much to do…..
It’s not the quantity of things we do on a day that messes us up. It’s our fear of not making it, missing out of something that should have been done. Losing control.
Really too little time?
It’s the stress that comes with it and we nurture that stress by telling ourselves that we have so little time. We complain that we have too little time for ourselves, to relax. That we take on to many things, say too often yes, while actually don’t have time. All this are expression of the fear of having not enough time. Not making it.
Mini exercise that does wonders…
Take a moment and think of all the things you do on a day. Pick one random task and imagine this would be the only thing you would do that day. Think about it and do it exactly the way you do it normally only imagine it’s the only thing to do today. How does it feel? Is it relaxed? Is it even fun?
The thought: “I have all the time” does wonders with every task you do. It changes how you do it and in my experience I do it often even better and faster, because I give it all my attention.
We are not exhausted of what and how much we do but how we do it.
I wish you many timeless times and tasks. It does wonders.
Much love Karin
Many feel that the life we live now, with running after the daily responsibilities, chasing some success in your career or in society will not bring the desired result. More and more people live t…
What is my authentic nature? Where do I thrive best? What is it in me that wants to thrive? Questions you might not ask yourself, yet those questions are worth your attention.
In our spiritual search many of us have experienced their godly being, that which is formless and has no ego. Mostly those experiences are during meditations or breathings and they are wonderful, yet often it’s hard to take that state into our daily life activities. We lose that connection while trying to take care of the many responsibilities most of us encounter every day. Continue reading
We experience enough one could say…more than enough. Time seems to be a rare asset and many of us long for some peace.
Are you a machine?
We have become a wheel in a machinery we call life. One appointment or responsibility chases the next. Happy and relieved when we are able to mark things as done we run towards the end of our day, week, month, and year and yes even our lives. Continue reading
To live our life in connection with life and by that in connection with ourselves, we are invited to welcome our unique earthly energy we embody, that energy we are, not that energy we would like to be, our ego or needy us likes to be.
Living your fears versus wanting to let them go
To practically live defenselessly who we are, we are invited to live all emotions in us, inclusively the ones we fear the most. This does not mean projecting them and to show the defensive top layer but to go inside and to make space for what you really fear.
Living your deepest fears is a different level of facing them than being aware of them and trying to overcome those fears. Trying to overcome those fears is in my experience more like trying to learn swimming in an online training.
To evolve further, to experience that peace, to experience oneness (one with life, god, all that is…) has nothing to do with excluding certain unpopular emotions, traits or events that appear in the now from the complete range of what can be experience. Continue reading
