Growing up in an internal world where questioning was driving, I became an observer of human behavior, my own and those of my surroundings. I tried to understand why we judge so hard, talk bad about each other to only later pretend that we did not. Why what was said was not read in the expression of our eyes. I spent most of my early childhood alone, or maybe just lonely, enhancing my role like an observer. My first teachers in this life were my parents. two extraordinary ordinary folks who loved and still love me fiercely, they taught me my most valuable lesson; that Love can exist without boundaries, it can be unconditional. I did my first meditation retreat when I was 22 and I understood that I was not alone in my pain, that I was ultimately responsible for my own happiness. Many years later, I have chewed, swallowed and occasionally spit out many teachings and ideas but I am still fascinated by what, why and how we do it and what happens next. Life, is an open ended proposal that just keeps expanding as my awareness grows. Endlessly.
I truly don't know and that is ok. But in the not knowing, in the uncompromising acceptance of uncertainty, there is space, space for surprises, for love and wisdom and space for me to grow and become whoever I need to be to meet the moment, regardless of who I was before. I am forever grateful to all those who are inspiring me to take this journey, teachers and masters from now and before, and to the everyday life heroes that silently put down a stone at a time on the road to love but I have always felt that it was my business to solve the riddle of life. And so I have developed a strong sense of responsibility and self-reliance in my practice and my spiritual path and I suggest you do too, for you know yourself best and you are your best friend. May we inspire each other to be love and to be free.
