Spontaneous "live" meditation

“Walk the talk”: I recently encouraged everyone to share what makes you happy. So yesterday on 04.05 (May the fourth be with you) this video was made. Actually I thought it was shared live on Youtube but apparently not. It’s not a bug it’s a feature: After joyfuly editing and designing, where the content remained untouched, I can now share the result with you. I’m just thinking about sharing live on a day of the week with a stable internal connection, which I have to share.

First “live” meditation from India.

Enjoy!

All or nothing or everything and nothing ?

Radically finished. After 14 days I finished the yogic cleaning on 23.04.2020 for the time being. I'm fine, I've achieved a lot in the 14 days. I am satisfied with the result. Why did I "cancel"? Many reasons I could list: the departure of my dear yoga teacher Ruth, the wedding day, (=) emotional-eating, bad weather, short-term discomfort that it has rained, that the neighboring striped squirrel has not greeted back or, or, or.

The truth is different. I've learned to be honest with yourself, so I'm here to you too. Quite simply, I gave in to a delicious seduction. Ruth left yesterday and this pretext, paired with conjured treats gave the rest to the "fasting time". The conscience was already reassured, because all this was justified, I do the whole thing voluntarily and I don't really need this holistic cleaning compared to the really sick. My recently tested blood results were also very
good! I just changed my mind. I made a decision. You could say now that I was inconsistent and weak. No?
Another perspective would be the self-confident decision to share joy (our last two meals together) to counter the sole health goal. One could also credit me for deliberately deciding against something and with all my heart and consciousness.
How could this continue now? What can I learn from this? What can we all take away
from it? It all starts with a decision. In order for it to continue to grow, it requires the regular supply of energy. Call these resources such as energy time, consciousness and feelings or actions. Sometimes you start a project full of joy and hope. But we have all already undergone a project that has been less enjoyable in the course of time than at the beginning. Some projects even have a negative pleasure average. Other projects are being stopped because it seems so intolerable or hopeless at a time that we decide to cancel. On the positive side, we better channel our energy into other areas to continue to grow or avoid creeping decay. It
takes courage to stop. Even if this was only a small decision, in essence they are all the same. We observe, we evaluate, we draw conclusions and we act accordingly. So
cially, we are trimmed to the point that cancelling per se is bad. Pull through, bite through, fight -Aroo, aroo, aroo (Spartan Race supporters know)!
Stupid only when you're at the end. What did that get through when you're standing in a place where you didn't want to be (any more), the goal changed and you just kept paddled? How do we find
out if we just have a short hangover and give up prematurely, or it's time to finish a project gratefully to continue elsewhere (you notice the infinitive to continue)? And here we would be aga
in at the permanently available investment advisor of the company Herz und K(l)opf. Take a step back, become quite calm and listen to you. What does your heart say? Where do you feel this decision to let go? In the mind in the heart? Says yes and no at the bottom? Is there fear or curiosity about the unknown?
You can specifically question your heart and then switch to an observational evaluation-free perspective. What would a dear person say who wants further development and growth? And what do you lose if you stay on the same (suffering) path in this situation?

Certainly for me this 21-day period and the decision to take a break was less world-shattering than previous ones. Nevertheless, it is always important for us to be aware of our intentions and to adjust them when necessary. How this works is now known. Stay in dialogue with your self, listen to your heart and remain faithful to yourself. Sometimes it is necessary to make other people seem unhappy in order to be able to share happiness in the long term. You can only give away what you have so invite yourself with joy, let yourself be gifted by the loving life and share joyfully what you can give: a dear word, indulgence, a smile, time or half a banana.

I'm going to keep going. The next phase I will start soon will be completely food-free: 9 days only water. Consistency is not only reflected in the initial conviction, the pace on the first kilometers. Even if it sometimes crashes, by constantly re-negotiating with you, it means to continue your path consciously determined and open-minded "infinitive". Better live 300 days of the change you want to be and take a break instead of a thirst stretch to give up the challenge completely. The average does it, so stay tuned or finish resolutely.


Remember: "Put your heart into what you do" and love what you do, too.

Heal the world – Dare you run

Have you ever built a house, made of bark and moss? You start with a tree trunk and a few strong roots on it and then you build on it. Dare you just start, then you will see what everything can do. (Text and music: Albrecht

This boys charlied went through my mind the days. We often have so much in front of us and sometimes so little. We dream big but better only in our small chambers start, dare something, try, for the sake of joy. This is how this little teaser video for Michael Jackson's Heal the World was created. Raw, true and with many exceptions 😉

Heal the world=heal yourSelf.

21 days – time for yogic transformation

Tomorrow from 09.04.2020 to 30.04.2020 I will perform a physical and psychological cleansing on me for 21 days after yogic manner. This experiment was chosen by myself and it feels like this is just the right time to do it.

The path I will be walking:
Nutrition: Only a special rice-beanporridge 3 times a day.
Physical cleansing: Using saltwater orally for internal cleansing for at least three consecutive days and drink only warm clear water during that period.
Also moderate physical activity with yoga and lots of meditations adapted to metabolism.

I will always report what will be going on in my body and mind. There will be motion, matter and mind will dissolve and transform. I never did this that long and there is much excitement coming up about the 21 days. I am looking forward to health and multidimentional growth!

Stay healthy and cheerful!

21 Days Lockdown – Day 7

I’m still alive. The yoga therapist training has officially ended. I had the honour and the challenge of being alone in the 2020 training class. Parallel to the course is still being built in the ashram and there is always something to do. Sushil, “my guru” demands additionally and sometimes the teaching falls somewhat by the wayside. This was also due to the reason why I decided to implement suggestions and measures here and there so that Sushil as a yogi can find more time for yoga. Unofficially, the course goes even further. As you know, learning never ends as much as there is interest. In addition to self-study of yoga literature, we also deal intensively with the Gherandha Sahmita and I still learn to read Sanskrit and try my hand at writing. Here and there also new matras sound, which I like to memorize. Singing is done here every day and very much. Generally, there’s a lot of music. Whether from me, singing together or the high-calibre bird orchestra.
Here, too, in the quiet ashram, the global phenomenon Co.ona leaves its mark. Registered patients declined and the planned structure of the training could only be adhered to to a limited extent. As always in life, it is the perspective that determines our reality. If we change the way things are looked at, things change. This also creates opportunities such as the unscheduled lessons around the here and there actions such as mosquito-net window construction or gardening find their place. The resulting time and the location connection invite reflection. Questions like: What was important to me in my old life? What is important to me now? Where can I continue to grow? What makes me really happy? How do I want to spend the rest of my life? Where does the journey go? Which people will continue to be part of my life journey? When can I finally play the piano again?! And how about real sex again?

I never get bored. Too many things go through my head for that and I am far too well equipped technically and creatively. At the moment I help my yoga teacher Ruth every week to produce yoga online lessons, I am in the process of conceiting my first video series, playing diligently ukulele (who made it to Inden unscathed in a cloth bag – in checked baggage!). I compose again and write poems. Oh yes, of course I do yoga and so I use this gift of isolation to further develop the yogic skills and my own creativity. And if I ever get bored and feel the longing, then I call a lovely person in Germany, just lie on the roof at night, look at the stars or overwork Pranayama and am grateful that I am allowed to be on this beautiful earth. I remain confident and stay in the now, again and again.

In love and gratitude.

21 Days Lockdown – Day 7

I’m still alive. The yoga therapist training has officially ended. I had the honour and the challenge of being alone in the 2020 training class. Parallel to the course is some constructionwork at the ashram in progress and there is always something to do. Sushil, “my guru”, is additionally involved and sometimes the teaching falls somewhat by the wayside. This was also due to the reason why I decided to implement suggestions and measures here and there so that Sushil as a yogi can find more time for yoga. Unofficially, the course goes even further. As you know, learning never ends as long as there is interest. In addition to self-study of yoga literature, we also deal intensively with the Gherandha Sahmita and I learn to read Sanskrit and try my hand at writing some first vowels. Here and there we also song a few new matras which I like to memorize. Singing is done here every day and with pleassure. Generally, there’s a lot of music. Whether from me, singing together or the high-calibre bird orchestra accompanied by Lucky and Rexy the dog duett.
Here, too, in the quiet ashram, the global phenomenon Co.ona leaves its mark. Registered patients declined and the planned structure of the training could only be adhered to to a limited extent.

As always in life, it is the perspective that determines our reality. “If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change” (Dr. Wayne Dayer). Or: It’s not a bug, it’s a feature (one of my favourite sayings)! This also creates opportunities such as the unscheduled lessons around the here and there actions such as mosquito-net window construction or gardening find their place. The free time and the location gives the opportunity for a lot of reflection. Questions like there arise these days: What was important to me in my old life? What is important to me now? Where can I continue to grow? What makes me really happy? How do I want to spend the rest of my life? Where does the journey go? Which people will continue to be part of my life journey?

And if I ever get bored and feel the longing, then I call a lovely person in Germany or Switzerland, just lie on the roof at night looking at the stars or practice Pranayama, being grateful that I am allowed to be on this beautiful earth. I remain confident and stay in the now, again and again.

In love and gratitude.

Yoga Therapy update

The yoga therapy has started well. Close to the patient and together with him, you get to know yoga therapy intensively and I am surprised how far-reaching the old yogic knowledge is. Nutrition, exercise, meditation and intense mindfulness produce incredible results when used in a targeted manner. As a trained person with a sports science background, you sometimes push your head to the limits if you do not keep your mind and heart open. I am curious what awaits me and our clientele in the future. Currently I am in the process of supporting the Ashram & the Yogic Hospit with my skills and experience, helping where I can and integrating new structures and subject areas. I am grateful for the opportunities and remain confident.
