Life: our inexplicable ground of existence that needs no further justification.

Light side: the dance of life; the infinite discovery.
Shadow: blood, sweat and tears, short-sightedness.


The earth is our mother. On earth we express our individuality and we learn patience and detachment.

Again we step into the world.

She offers a jumble of beautiful places and tragic events.

In that complex chaos, however, everything and everyone is in the right place. So everything can be there. Everything that exists and everything that lives is a gift.

Realizing this inspires confidence.

In the midst of all that life and death – from wedding to funeral – and all that turbulence you can find peace (…) when you dare to awaken. By being consciously aware you develop the realization that the world reflects your thoughts.

With our thoughts we create our reality within the wealth of possibilities that the cosmos offers us. The world offers an inexhaustible source of opportunities to gain experience. The cosmic order is at first sight rather chaotic.

You can experience something like that in your life: sometimes things go well and everything is clear, and sometimes you do not know exactly who you are, what you want or what you have to do.

The mind wants to realize itself through the body and looks for a way of life in which the body is not a prison but a valued vehicle.
