“Life – that is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.”
The realisation of the concept “The Art of Life” is not about me, I only contribute my small part to the fulfilment of a very specific vision. A vision that I believe the world needs at the moment.
Nevertheless I would like to give an insight into my life, my experiences and ideas at this point.
The theme of my life seems to be love. Or maybe a development from fear to love. From structure into chaos, and thus into trust in a higher, guiding force, the power of love.
The sentences that have accompanied me since my earliest childhood have to do with freedom, self-determination and experience. For me, standing still has always been a step backwards. Since my earliest childhood I have felt an inner urge to find out the essence of my existence, to follow myself. To find and fulfill my soul mission.
At school I belonged to the classically shy and quiet contemporaries. I didn’t say much, but when I did, it had a surprising effect, especially for me.
Especially the written work, which had to be done from time to time, seemed to suit me. Some kind of magic resonated when I wrote down words. The first self-written poem I can remember was about freedom of thought.
As I said, freedom, finding, but also the following connection, those have always been my themes.
Unfortunately, I have to say in retrospect, for a long time I could make almost nothing out of this magic when I grew up. My talent for writing was simply not encouraged; the school system was more about making up for possible weaknesses, and I had to compensate for some of them as best I could.
With the result that I was, like most people, a well-balanced young person after graduation, no idea what to do with “freedom” after school – and what I could and wanted to do.
Out of this unclear chaotic life situation, my insatiable urge for the greatest possible personal freedom ultimately helped me.
This urge inevitably drove me into entrepreneurial activity – so I became an “entrepreneur”.
What a term for something that, in my view, was completely natural. Isn’t everyone an “entrepreneur”?, I asked myself. Why is self-employment such an extraordinary thing when you associate it with work?
Of course, it must be the fear. People’s fear of responsibility, of risks, of raising their inner voice.
This fear, oh, it is a big part of my person, as well as the constant inner struggle to break through the fear and to get it under control.
Being an entrepreneur makes me face my fears every day anew. It is a fantastic way to live your life.
Therefore, I do not only include my work in my entrepreneurial activities, but all areas of my life.
For example, also the biggest task that life has given me so far – accepting my role as father, accompanying my son through his life. This wonderful little person teaches me every day anew what it is all about.
His world is so pure. So simple. But on the other hand, it is anything but pure. Because, I was convinced, the little man’s soul has been here before and brings a lot of experience. And has chosen me as dad and my wife as mom to make new experiences.
This life will also be about coming to terms with his fears, and trust in love and himself.
Our son was and is anything but “normal” – and that is wonderful. He has extraordinary fears, but also extraordinary feeling for everything that happens around him, all events, but above all all all emotions around him.
His high sensitivity is also gradually awakening in me a whole new kind of empathy and feeling.
Through this project I would like to share as much as possible about my sometimes extraordinary life experiences and views and help to make the world a little bit better.
I started the project 9 years ago, at the age of 33 (we will learn a thing or two about numbers here…). The ups and downs of my life during this time made me push it away, reject it, curse it. But somehow it always came back again.
That I realize it now may also be the result of a phase of my life in which I had almost finished with the essence, the life. I suddenly became ill. Sicker and sicker. My life energy was getting more and more lost every day. And with it came fear. The more I befriended having to leave soon, the greater my fear became, but just as great suddenly became my trust in love. A very special form of love.
What can I say, love has conquered fear and my soul has given me back my physical energy. Now it is time to pass on this energy in the form of something really meaningful.
There is much to see out there, much more than we know and believe.
There is also much to improve, because the state of the world and society is shattering.
I hope I can take you with me into my world of thoughts. For my thoughts are free, and perhaps they will help one or the other to achieve inner or outer freedom.
