Let it go...

pareja-en-la-playaLet it go...

... and let it flow. Easier said than done. Anybody who made the step to Fuerteventura – or another foreign location – knows that letting go became a permanent companion, in the past and maybe today still is. You leave behind the usual life, family, friends, job, home and the surroundings that you got accustomed to for a journey into another world. Attitude is everything, as the challenges are multiple and complex, most of the time. Issues which you never anticipated emerge, situations that you never experienced will call upon you. And so it can happen that, when sticking to the usual procedures and structures, your journey might become rather bumpy. However whatever the outcome, you will have learned and built up experiences that never can be taken out of a book. Experience – whether positive or negative – remains an experience that will bring you further on to your path of life.

Relationships: The dynamics of Modern Relationships - a sketch.

relationships-10Modern relationships differ from “older” ones in the way that nowadays people can be more open about their preferences and expectations. Females enjoy more freedom in most western societies and this has an important influence on their self-consciousness and ego. The “romantic ideal” of life-time relationships is – slowly but steadily – transformed into a more pragmatic attitude towards partnerships. Discovery of one self within a fixed relationship and redefinition of expectations and loyalty becomes an important topic to youngsters and older partners. The search about the (new) basics of life is also guided by components of the far-eastern culture. Respect, openness and friendship seem to be the driving forces in modern relationships.

Freedom of Mind - The Fuerteventura Experiment.

brillo_corporalThe mind or ego, in its conscious or unconscious state, is a genial development of nature. It has helped all living species to take care of themselves and to survive most daily threats, over millions of years. Evolution as we know it is unthinkable without the assistance of mind, regardless what state.
However, modern mankind in general is the first creature on this planet that has the possibility of not having to stand up to life-threatening situations everyday. Even more, modern mankind is the first creature on this planet that has the luxury to relax over a longer period of time without suffering negative consequences.

Conflicting Partners

MALA relationship is not always a rose garden, nor should it be a constant warzone. However, living together creates conflicts. There are many reasons for this such as genetics, hormones and external elements. People do evaluate and interpret events in a different way and they do act accordingly different. Hidden behind any conflict are wishes, expectations and habits that were known by you before or that were hidden in your subconscious mind. You got to know them for sure only when exposed during a conflict.

You and your Destiny

mahatma9Your beliefs convert into your thoughts,

Your thoughts convert into your words,

Your words convert into your actions,

Your actions convert into your habits,

Your habits convert into your values,

Your values convert into your destiny.

What if?

AMANECER1Some time ago during this year, I was overlooking the most significant events of the last couple of months and wondered what would be the meaning of them. Would they just be randomly produced as components of a mathematical probability, or would they be "organised" as part of a "higher plan" in order to invite us to re-think about and re-act on our "proven" concepts?  With "higher plan" I do not necessarily mean the standard idea of a Higher Force, but merely the creation of situations by our actual behaviour that make those events almost unavoidable.

A lesson in modesty - Made in Japan.

tsunamiAs already mentioned in short in the Welcome section of this magazine, the recent dramatic events for sure have put many people in shock and have set them in a mental conditioning of self-examination: why did it hit us so badly, where were we wrong?

We never will be able to predict major earthquakes sufficiently well or even control or avoid most of their effects, but we can try to limit those devastating consequences that we have witnessed recently.

Love & Relationships.

5822630Is Love enough in a relationship? Well, compare with this:

Imagine your car being in a corrosive marine area.

If you regularly do maintenance on your car and with love, you will encounter little rust,

If you love your car but cut on the maintenance, you will get more rust,

If you don’t love your car and neglect it, you will get a lot of rust,

A relationship is not different.

Love alone is not enough to keep things running, regular maintenance is important too.

Eliminating rust with love alone won’t work, a hands-on approach is needed sometimes.

Relationships – Suggestions for a happy-end.

corazon2When relationships are difficult or when they are hitting a bottom, many people ask themselves what is wrong with them… or with their partner. With the exception of a minority who really have to cope with deep problems concerning emotional and communicative issues, nothing is wrong with us. However, be aware that every one of us is a product of three major elements: genetic disposition, education by environment and adjustment through auto-feedback.

Open the Gate and let through…

_MG_2626Open the Gate and let through… It is almost Christmas time. The year comes to its end, the days shorten and the nights get longer. Here on Fuerteventura, we do not experience these phenomena to the same extent as “back home“. Here we still have the warmth and the light and we don’t have the sh… weather like rain, fog, cold, snow, but neither the open fire place, the fine delicacies from home.

Anxiety: a hurdle to quality-life

galeria_file_foto_59Anxiety is a result of a biological and a psychological condition but also of education and social environment. When we grow up from our childhood to adults, we discover fear due to experiences that harmed us – physically, mentally, emotionally, or a combination of these. A proper education teaches us to cope with these fears and to put them in a balanced perspective. An improper or even abusive education will result in the amplification of fears to such an extend that they could run your entire life. Fear will then cause internal and constant pain.

The Art of opening up your Soul | Spirit19

Many of us – and I have to admit I am no exception to it – tend to use only our brain in our daily communication with others. For the majority of topics that we have to deal with, there is nothing wrong about that. But when it comes to our communication with friends or beloved ones, we could allow the heart – and thus our soul – to speak more freely. This statement may sound trivial and “déjá vu”, but it isn’t.

Sexual Communication | Spirit 19

1One could think that sex is not a taboo anymore. Till the bedroom light darkens.

When you ask ten people about their most embarrassing moments in life, eight will answer you with a story about nudity or sex. No matter that we can talk freely about sex; we draw the line where people can watch, hear or smell us during the “act”. Even with our fixed partner, we tend to pretend.

The objective of performance is dominating our perception and behaviour. And it is not only with the masculine part of our population that targets like “1-hour penetration” are the only valid criteria of success. Also the female part can be conditioned by the “number of orgasms” they can achieve. Another fake target is the “romantic copulation”.

Sadness after separation: when it should stop…| Spirit 19

{jcomments on}tristeza_13_Lady W. (50) tells me whilst covered in tears: “My husband left me 4 years ago for a 10 year younger woman. As a result of that I started the divorce. But since then my life became without meaning, I cry a lot, I have no energy, I feel bad. I consult doctors because of my sleep disorders, I eat too much and I have regular headaches. I don’t know how to continue my life, I have no fun anymore in my work and I started taking pills to cope with this world. At occasions I take to the bottle. What’s wrong with me?”
