Matter – our new God

Schemering Lesbos

Since we banished God from our lives, matter has become the new God. Everything, really everything, is expressed in practical use and money. By focusing on the material need of the refugee and immediately turning this into action, we do not have to feel what the real problem is: that we closed our hearts and our borders because we are afraid to face our own fears…


What I keep trying to show is that everything has two sides. That there is no light without darkness and that the one is by definition not better than the other…

Transformation

No longer I see myself as a victim and I do not want to see any person as such. Nobody knows the blueprint of the other…

There is a certain reason why people are on the run. I have seen people undergoing tremendous transformations here in Greece and in similar situations. These are usually the few who distanced themselves from the group and stayed with their own lesson. The mass lingers in herd-behavior. They slowly but surely sink deeper into matter or into the world of the unconscious. You can also see that in ‘normal life’. Whatever that may be…

Although it is nothing more than human to want to help people, it is of great importance to face our motivation behind it…

Rescue

I am not here in Lesbos to save people. On the contrary. I am convinced that nothing or nobody needs to be saved…

We are all here on earth to find the way back to our true Self…

Pain is a part of breaking the scale that unlocks our insights, according to Kahlil Gibran.
I fully agree with that…

Suffering

It does not testify from love for our children to take away their learning processes by kneading them to the success image that we would like to see in them. Even if it means that they will suffer less…

Compassion

It is human and testifies of compassion that we want to help people in need. However, it shows a lack of insight when we see refugees only as victims. In this way we place ourselves above them and make them dependent from us. Unconsciously we may be afraid that we will lose our job, paid or unpaid. Perhaps our feeling of security, safety or our need to be indispensable is at stake…

In my opinion, true love means that we do not cling to anything and do not hold on anything or anyone, but make us superfluous as soon as possible…

Support

According to me, we may transfer a place as Kara Tepe so soon as possible to the refugees themselves. Of course there is minimal support during the transfer. Devote people to the deviant European rules and let them, by trial and error, build up their own lives as long as they have to life here…

We too learn only through the mistakes we make and in this way at least we give the refugee their dignity back...

Borders

That is my message. If I have already one. I do not feel like playing the game that everything is wrong here in camp Moria. By now we know those images and we repeat them again and again. I prefer to see how we can improve the situation. How we can eliminate our own borders so that there will be a time that no borders are needed…

Embrace

I am here because I want to open my heart even more so that I can embrace the whole world. In short, I am here because I want to be here. Because the real life takes place here without all the external frills where many of us hide behind, just not having to feel how much we have lost ourselves in a world of externalities…

Base

When you have to leave everything behind, even for certain men their wife and children, you fall back on your naked base. There is no longer something to hide yourself behind and your true face is showing up…

And that true face is so beautiful and authentic that again and again I am in extasy. Like a child…

Breath

And that is why I am here and tomorrow maybe somewhere else.  Because I do not belong anywhere and therefore I have nothing to gain or to lose. I connect with pain and joy, with love and sorrow. I breathe in and breathe out and let go again. I am like a child and I am blown away by the wind…

I wish every living being a year in which pain and joy both will be in a natural rhythm…
