Things that interest me and will show up on my blog for sure:

This blog is meant to help me stay focused on what I’m grateful for and what it is that I want to bring into my live or that I want to create from inside of me. I’m grateful for everyone who likes to walk beside me for a bit and I’m looking forward to communicate with people that are like-minded (or not ;)


There are two poems, that have always accompanied me and helped me find my way and trust. I’d like to share them with you:

1. The first one by Rainer Maria Rilke was written in a little artists village right around the corner from where I live.This is, where my blog title has it’s origin

„You are so young, so much before all beginning, and I would like to beg you, dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.“

Rainer Maria Rilke, letters to a young poet, letter #4

„You must always keep in mind that a path is only a path. Each path is only one of a million paths. If you feel that you must now follow it, you need not stay with it under any circumstances. Any path is only a path. There is no affront to yourself or others in dropping a path if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on a path or to leave it must be free of fear and ambition. I caution you: look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself and yourself alone this one question. Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same. They lead nowhere. They are paths going through the brush or into the brush or under the brush of the Universe. The only question is: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then it is a good path. If it doesn’t, then it is of no use.“

Carlos Castaneda, The teachings of Don Juan
