We live in a world full of wonder, beauty and undiscovered
secrets. Often we can't absorb it all, because we are so
full of our own problems and our view of the world, that
often arises out of suffering, loneliness and meaninglessness.
Amongst other things, the reason for this is that we don't
really live and realize our potential.
We learn strategies of behavior that hinder us from developing and unfolding
fully. Through painful and disappointing events throughout our lives, we close
our hearts and shut down. We live a minimized life, and we pretend that everything
is fine, but at the same time we protect our inner wounds. What is lost is our
connection to our natural being, to our essence. As children we lose contact
with what we really are, and are reduced to fear, desperation, and restlessness,
which leaves our lives limited and insufficient.
While discovering and retrieving all these lost aspects of our own essence, we
might be able to participate in the beauty, the strength and the magnitude that
we truly are. And thus would be able to see the world in a new and fresh way,
as a manifestation of love and truth, with a deep understanding that makes this
life worth living again.
