All within

All the things we think we got to find on the outside, are already here inside us. Loving-kindness, understanding, and compassion. They are there within. We need only to clear some of the rock obstructing the way, in order to reveal them. – Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Living

New Year’s Eve

The full moon was yesterday. For me, the moon is always a reminder of life’s flow and the ever-changing nature of it, – of everything, including myself. The person I was yesterday – my thoughts, feelings, the stomach ache – they have dissolved into the past. I woke up to a new day, to new…

The practice of remembering

Lately, I’ve been writing about remembering. About returning. There is this voice that I hear. The more I unplug from the many voices around me – the many distractions. This voice grows stronger. Steadier.It sits in my centre, like on a throne. And it is ready, at all times.It is ready to bring me back.…

Keep returning

What if it is enough to just BE who you are? What if there is nothing to prove? To achieve? Can it feel enough? So much of what we do and strive for, or dream of, is driven by the idea that it will brings us closer to happiness. That it will get us some…

Rooting down in the dark

As we’re moving into the darkness of the winter months here in Sweden (heading for that sunset at half past two…) I’m choosing to be here for it all. Allowing the weather, the world, any feelings and sensations, to be as they are. At the same time reminding myself where I want to direct my…

You are

You are far more than the sum of your thoughts, ideas, opinions. Rest into what lies beyond, and feel it nourish you, give you life. Pause, pay attention to the breath, feel into the space around it, and rest there. Wishing you a beautiful weekend. 💕

Staying open and letting go

Awareness brings clarity and empowerment. As we become aware of what arises in us, we can choose what to let go. There is no point in resisting what is already here, but we can practice seeing it all for what it is. By remembering our presence, we can more clearly see what is ours and…

This is not self-improvement

Something I’ve noticed over the years in the spiritual- or self-development realm, is how easily the path can lead us to self-criticism. This usually leads to nowhere, except possibly to more feelings of shame, and more judging of ourselves and in turn others as well. Non-judgement is often talked about as one of the most…
