09 – the taming power of the small

777877“I, I, all I!” – Now it is me at the very center: all one with myself, concentrated, well rooted. That is the starting point. And from here, as soon as I feel ready to do so, I turn towards… the world.

What an immense variety of possibilities storms up on me! How in the world should I choose? What is right, what is important, what is superfluous? How should I make a choice? My head can help me: what corresponds to me? What is my path – and what possibly distracts me from my path?

Only if I know my target, I can set out. But then if necessary, even against resistance. I head towards my goal, just like spring greens the landscape: powerfully, unstoppable without hesitation or doubts. towards my goal, just like spring greens the landscape: powerfully, unstoppable without hesitation or doubts.

  • A year ago a user has separated from her partner, the relationship was negative, partly violent; the children live with her. The relationship with her ex-partner has since improved, probably also due to his professional success.
    The user’s question: “How I should continue? Should I file for divorce?”
  • A user asks: “After twenty years I have seen – only seen – someone again, I once was very much in love with. What is this encounter’s message for me?”
