But true freedom does not come from outer circumstances. We create our own prisons. It is nice to have worldly freedom. It is nice that I have some money to do what I want, but meditation showed me, that the true restrictions are created by my thoughts.
To this day, I continue to educate myself on spirituality, psychology and philosophy. I love it, but I do not place my bets on any intellectual knowledge. What matters is my practice. I apply what I read, I test what I find interesting and I share what works. This is what I love to do and in retrospect it is true, personal development works.
But is it not an easy journey and I still struggle with a lot of things. But also know that mindfulness is the tool that I can use to work through every situation. The situations of our lives are true teachers and give us exactly the lessons we need to learn. But they need to be experienced mindfully.
Otherwise, we miss the essence of the intelligence that shines through in challenging moments. We stop deceiving ourselves but simply observing the deceiver. I let the light of awareness shine on my own deception and all that is not Truth dissolves. True action follows.

By sharing my personal path, I hope to inspire you to discover Truth for yourself. As this path is a process of constantly evolving as a person, you might find that my views change and that I sometimes arrive at new and differing conclusions.
If you want to have me by your side throughout the ups and downs of your personal journey, I offer long-term coaching at fair value. You can write me an email through the contact form on the right and find more information on the personal consultations page.
