Why I Have Been So Quiet – A New Direction for this Blog

I started this blog in 2014. It was a big time of transition for me and I didn’t know where this was going.

One part of being a writer is finding one’s language. Another is finding what you really want to write about. The hardest part is then to express this message, this pouring out of the heart, unencumbered, so as to relate heart to heart, soul to soul, being to being.

In the beginning, this blog was a lot about processing my experience with “mental illness” from 2003-2013. I think that was what brought a lot of you to read this in the first place.

Well, I figured that is something I do not want to talk about anymore.

Bipolar disorder, I hereby submit my resignation.

Yes, these experiences have led me to embrace meditation and spirituality. I am grateful for that. The hunger to understand all of this was the driving force behind all of my inner work. I am grateful for that.

But in the end, it was about something else. Something beautiful…

I sought healing only to find out that nothing was wrong in the first place.
I sought redemption, only to find that I possess it already.
I sought approval for my path, only to find that all answers are within me.

That is the story. And this story is common to all human beings.

Working with myself and assisting others in their inner work through meditation and gestalt therapy taught me one thing: it is all the same. The human blueprint is so similar and the inner processes which we think are unique are really not. The sequence yes. That is our life’s story, written by yours truly. But not the algorithm.

I mostly processed this deepening and generalising of understanding in my German blog www.themellowmindexperience.com, which is a platform for my workshops and online courses and hopefully many things to come.

I will be introducing inner work to change and happiness in organisations next year with a wonderful team of friends.

What I don’t share on that blog or my business projects and did not share here are my deep spiritual experiences. I was scared of judgement and rejection. “That crazy guy again.”. Well, that seems to be a common theme and we feel alone in this while we are many.

Well, I end this now. For myself. I am so sick of hiding that core of me from the world. Am I scared. Yes. But my resolve and joy and feeling of liberation is much greater.

May this blog be about OUR spiritual evolution. About working together to manifest a better life for every being on this planet. About serving as the Divine from the Divine. About inspiration and assistance in that quest. And about fanning the flame in every one of us and giving us the courage to let our collective light shine.

This is the time. This is the place. Let’s get to work – Servants of All.

May the Force be with You.
