Take a break from yourself

…and do something for someone else, with no thought of personal gain.

It can be a smile, a compliment, a word, a mere amiable glance…it can make
a huge difference…

For a change, look closely around you and realize that we are all intertwined.

You are the other, you become enriched by knowing yourself in the contact with
your fellow-man.

I will illustrate my point:

I had an inner major break-through yesterday. Such an incredible sense of wellness and
relief within me: The “old me” was no longer there. I was feeling composed, empowered, free…as if floating, but entirely rooted in the present moment.

As I was sitting at a terrace sipping a coffee and writing, a guy stopped a couple of meters right in front of me. At first it was confusing… – I had never seen him before. A perfect stranger, properly dressed, with a very unusual charisma. He was gently smiling at me, vividly gesticulating, his eyes glowing with gratitude. He was obviously deaf. He was “talking” to me, although at first I was quite bewildered – he used sign language.

The “encounter” didn´t last more than few seconds. But as he quickly moved his hands, he was intimating:

“Thank you for your presence – you look so elegant, you spread wellness around you.
Whatever you write in your book reaches out to me. Thank you!” 

He happily smiled again, bowed and vanished, as if this never happened.

Given that here in Stockholm where I live, no one ever says anything, I was simply overwhelmed… What an approval I had received.

Few magic seconds of shared joy!

These are not “mere words”

Man´s greatest fear is the encounter with his invisible self.

Unless you come in contact and realize the eternal, imperishable you,
everything will be totally devoid of sense.

No more, no less.
