Magical places

It has been more than a week since I was at this magical place in the most southern part of the Netherlands. A place where Carole and I worked on our next adventure: an expedition into Northern Ghana. We brainstormed, discussed the contents of the website, we wrote, laughed, cried, walked for hours through the…

In extase, maar dan anders

Op de website van De Kunsthal lees ik over een expositie met de titel Extase: erotische fotoportretten in grofkorrelige zwart-witbeelden. Mijn aandacht is gewekt en ik besluit een tijdslot te reserveren. Op de bewuste dag regent het, maar mijn reservering staat, dus ik stap op mijn fiets. Ergens hopende dat ik tussen de buien door…

Let’s raise our vibration

Het is zaterdagavond. Ik heb een fikse fietstocht gemaakt en ik zit moe maar voldaan op de bank met een lekkere kop koffie. Ik sla de Happinez open en lees het verhaal van Tijn Touber over de 5D realiteit. Het is een prachtig artikel, deels geciteerd uit zijn boek “Time Bender, de man die de…

Confused & frozen

One of the assignments today is to shoot a picture of your subject portraying a specific mood by using various light sources. An open assignment in which we can choose ourselves what to do. Nice, you would think. Well, my mind completely freaks out. I panick. I have no idea what to shoot. What mood?…

Do we need to suffer in order to find joy?

Do we need to suffer in order to find joy? “No!” would be my immediate answer to that question. But what about the Law of Polarity? What about the fact that we need ‘light’ to recognize the ‘dark’? Don’t we need to suffer in order to recognize joy? No. It is this law and these…

Iets met touwladders en sterke koffie

Ik lees in de Happinez het artikel van Geert Kimpen. Over de pelgrimsreis. De reis naar binnen. En de 9 stappen die deze reis bevat. Van voorbereiden tot veranderen. Met daar tussenin alle avonturen, moeilijkheden en magie van dien. Ik lees het hardop voor en voel de tranen in mijn ogen opwellen. Een pelgrimsreis. Dat…

My discovery journey on joy. In Ghana.

It is June when I send Carole a message: “How do you feel about me visiting you in Ghana?” Her short and great answer is: “Superb”. And so it happens that I embark on a wonderful journey (on joy) to Ghana. I leave early in the morning to fly from Cape Town airport to Johannesburg…

It all started with one sentence. A profound one. About joy.

March 2016. We sit outside. It is another sunny day in the northern part of Spain. One of the last days of our 100-day journey in a campervan. I can’t remember the question exactly, but I’ll never forget my answer to it. I felt passionate and dedicated when I said: ”Yeah, but you know what? Joy…

Find yourself a job!

Okay, that’s it! T H A T   I S   I T. It hits me. Almost like a lightning bolt. I can feel it in every part of my body. THIS IS IT. I am done with it. I am just not allowing this to happen anymore. I am just not doing it. NO WAY!…

I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way

We talk for hours and hours. About our lives. Our relationships. The adventures we love. About inspiring books. Esmeralda tells me that her life was changed by Eckhart Tolle’s: A new earth. I recall that years ago I tried to read his other book, The power of Now, but that was clearly a bridge too…
