Living the questions

As this may sound familiar for some of us, being raised in a linear, rational and mind-dominated environment, I got to a point where I got tired, pale, and stuck. I didn’t know how to move forward in life: how to make decisions, how to truly be present and enjoy everything, or how to tune in with myself to find the answers. I developed a sense of knowing 'this can't be it'; that there was something more to find in perceiving life. 

 

Through patience, slowing down, opening up my senses, asking tons of questions and getting into the field of spiritual ecology, I developed the understanding that it was totally okay to not know or to have all the answers. In fact, I learned that not knowing in what direction my life was moving was not a lack of self-knowledge, but an embrace of the uncontrollable natural unfolding of life. That in contrary, to step into the unknown, I could empower my inner knowledge; my intuition, but also my mental and physical health, my curiosity and my creativity.

Through connecting with nature I could regain trust: that everything unfolds through a natural rhythm. I could trust the returning of the seasons, the tides, and the sun, and within that frame of unfolding there would be enough strength to move through the unknown. A deeper knowing emerged. I suddenly stepped into a life that was no longer led my mental control, but by my inner compass of trust. Energy got back into my body, colour returned on my skin, and a natural flow of opportunity appeared.

 

I am excited to spread tools, share practices and build spaces to tune in with this all embracing approach to life: to harmonise with our natural rhythms and to connect mind with body and beyond.

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke
