In the end life is already perfect as it is. We are spending time on this tiny blue marble, spinning around its axis, cycling around one of the billions and billions of stars. When we realize that everything happens in this very moment and that we have nothing else than the here and the now we can surrender and bathe in consciousness. But at least for me, this realization comes and goes. Sometimes I feel it clearly, sometimes I struggle. And seen from the bigger picture that is perfectly ok too.
The ego is a mighty opponent. I come to this conclusion every day. That thing that we experience as ‘myself’, that thing that manufactures thoughts and feelings and draws conclusions that seem logical and natural but turns out to be quite conditioned by people and circumstances when we take a closer look; that thing doesn’t […]
In 1961 John F. Kennedy inspired the people of the United States by setting an outrageous goal. He convinced the nation that it should commit itself in landing a man on the moon.

During the first episode of the 100 Day Warrior I asked a handful of people from the creative industry to send me questions that they would like to be answered by the participants of the 100 Day Warrior.

More on Rebirth. I promised that to you and myself. My previous post started like this: The 100 Day Warrior II has come to a conclusion. Another amazing ride with a spectacular finale.

The 100 Day Warrior II has come to an conclusion. The second group was tougher for me than the first group. There were quite a few challenging moments. Sometimes I have doubted my capabilities and I had concerns about our progress. But then the magic happened and everything feel into place.

Everybody had changed on the inside and on the outside. To ignite such a process and witness the outcome fills me with gratitude.
