Who does not want to be loved? Who is not longing for attention, recognition, acknowledgement and for being recognised as a human being, to be seen and heard and why not for receiving a hug?
I’m so confused.
There’s a big mess in my head.
I don’t know where to start and where to end.
There’s no problem in my life.
The only problems are made by me.
I’ve got no big threats against my life.
Then why is my brain fried?
Problems are problems, if you give them the space to be problems.
Because the only one recognizing those problems, is you.
It’s your brain telling you there’s a problem, but when is it really one?
My brain is fried with problems.
Or aren’t they such things?
Are they just thoughts, which pass my mind too many at the same time, so that I can’t see which one is which anymore?
I can’t differentiate between them.
I want things but do I have the right to?
I’m aware of my past and my failures.
I try to stop myself from doing weird things.

In life we do have to relate in first instance to our self, next to the creation, and then last but not least to the Creator Himself.
An “I-Thou” relation with understanding of past, present and future, is essential to build up something positively constructive.
- Martin Buber (I and Thou, 1923)
- Humanist variant of/alternative to existentialism: Relationship precedes essence.
- Identity = by-product of “I-Thou” relation

The way I read the Jewish theologian, Martin Buber (I and Thou, 1923), he offers a humanist variant of/alternative to existentialism. Where Sartre might say, “Existence precedes essence,” Buber might say, “Relationship precedes essence.” In contrast to the stark “thrownness” of the existentialist, who finds himself alone in an indifferent universe, Buber finds identity itself to be a by-product of the “I-Thou” relation (connections both to fellow humankind and to Being itself). Having shuffled off the existentialist’s burden of aloneness, however, Buber is not exactly the Walmart greeter to Happy Valley. Like the existentialist, he is weighed down with responsibility. For now he carries forever — past, present, and future – the built-in burden of all that connection, the “exalted melancholy of our fate” (16).

Summer has come to its end and the white sands, pristine sun-streaked skies,with radiant horizons stretching forever, may stay in our head for ever, now we have to close some doors to open new ones.
We only can hope they will uncover new interesting things. Though that we never forget were we came from and how we wanted to grow. Let us see that beauty in growth, the resilient effort toward understanding who we are in the moment.
And when the clouds pass our eyes we can see the trees who bow down in front of their Maker, knowing that lots of people just walk by and do not see the wonders of nature which are the witnesses of their Creator.
Not only is there the inner voice which has been receiving food from the educating people around us. More important is the inner voice which comes from much deeper than from our own experiences and our days on this earth.
When a foetus that Voice was already taking care of us. Other voices as soon as we saw daylight tried to transform or change those ideas of that deeper inner voice. Up until our twenties we get so much influenced by the other voices that they can tear us down. Instead of listening to the positive voice from within we often get too much carried away by the outer influences.
The strong person is not the one who keeps listening and trying to suit the outer voices but is the one who is willing to go deep inside the self and to live the own truth with confidence.
Being yourself is the most precious gift you can give yourself and which you received from the Most High Voice of Universe.
spending time trying to be who others want us to be
putting effort into pretending to be who we are not in the hopes for acceptance, love and approval of others
=> compromising yourself.
you let others shape you and tell you who you are <= you believe and trust in those people + you believe the words they say.
=> false + wrong motivation
We all allow words we hear to shape us and form us
=> give us confidence – or – => tear us down and hold us prisoner from our true purpose
To change that voice that haunts us and holds us back
- look for positives in everything
- challenge the thoughts and the voice
- you have talent
- you can touch people’s hearts with your words
- you can become the sculptor and not the lump of clay
- you can change the world one mind at a time
believe in yourself => others believe in you too

There is a quiet joy alive in my heart this morning, a sense of gratitude for the gentle breeze resting against my skin and another beautiful grey day. Inside, I hear my inner voice chant the words ‘thank you, thank you, thank you…’ And with that gratitude comes the openness to what magic the day may bring.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.

Does your intuition or inner muse talk to you? I recently discovered that mine does. In form of thoughts that won’t let me go. It’s a very persistent inner voice. And sometimes downright annoying….

We have many creative people who like to work differently and they are also inspired by other creative outlets. We wanted to give the tenants as well as the residents of Downtown Dallas a place to get away from their busy lives, to slow down, to get inspired and to take a breather. What better place to do that at than an art gallery to pause and to ponder and be inspired.

Self talk and self doubt usually leads to thoughts of changing something. Snap decisions based on an emotional experience, even a stretch of bad days and experiences are seldom grounded.

In order to awaken your true life’s purpose you need to be ready to accept ‘change’. Change may come in the form of a change in consciousness, a change in belief-sets and/or thought-patterns, a distinct career change, a change in lifestyle choices.
Sometimes your inner voice may lead you along a path that could bring you great personal joy and fulfilment, but may seem a little unorthodox, unsuited or inappropriate to family, friends or peers in their view and judgement. Sometimes finding and living your purpose could mean going against the wishes or advice of others, particularly that of close friends and family. Be true to yourself regardless.Walk your own path.

Voice of Survival of Traumatic Events
How often have we spent time trying to be who others want us to be? How much effort do we put into pretending to be who we are not in the hopes for acceptance, love and approval of others? I am so guilty of this. I have a desire to want everyone to love me; even if that means I am compromising myself.
I find that I am a lot like a ball of play dough. I let others shape me and tell me who I am. The worse part about this is that I believe and trust in those people. I believe the words they say.
My father use to tell me I was fat, ugly, stupid, and a slut. I would grow up to be nothing. He called it “shock therapy.” He would sit me down and berate me in the hopes that somehow this would motivate me…
