At some point in life, everyone starts asking what life is all about. Who am I, really? This is normal and part of being human. Our life moves around in circles like the seasons change the tree. Most people experience changes in life and are looking for their personal path. One of the biggest challenges is to lose your own health, or someone you deeply love. Being confronted with deep suffering human beings tend to want to fix-it or forget-about-it. All normal ways in which we try to cope with excruciating pains or being lost in our inner forest. There is a third way of dealing with it: face-it. This response toward suffering is mostly found in religion, art and the humanities. In this framework suffering can help us to grow into a deeper way of being. It presents us with the possibility to grow into a firmly rooted tree, no matter which season it is. To be vital and live according to the directions of your inner compass. Spiritual teachers have shown us the way how to live fully, no matter which circumstances you are in. Artists present us images which guide us on our path to finding our own creativity and inner freedom. Writers and philosophers may become close friends on our journey in which we discover unexpected and even more rich meaning, exactly within the darkness and muddy waters. Let's go on an inner journey and discover your personal sources and strengths and open up to life in the fullest. Listen to what is calling you and gear to it.
