My husband and I spent our summer holiday high up at 1240 m in a typical stone-house B&B in Valle D'Aosta. Surrounded by the bright snow-capped mountains and the fresh air of trees we indulged in a slow-paced life in a community of 5 houses that made me feel like I'd...

Put your eyes where your feet are

Put your feet where your belly is

Put your belly in your hands

Put your hands on your back

Put your back where your ears are

Put your ears at the tip of your fingers

Put the tip of your fingers on your knees

Put your knees where your chest is

Truth is soft like a feather. It protects you from getting wet in a storm, it keeps you warm in cold winter nights and it will always help you fly.

But when we’re afraid — of losing love, being ridiculed, seeming unknowledgeable — fear tells us “not now, speak next time...

“I dream 

and the dream breaks

the dream forgives its brokenness

but the broken ones never let go of the dream”

Gu Cheng

Some dreams we hold very very tightly. Others we might forget in a secret drawer because we don’t believe they will ever find a life. Some dreams take us...

I thought that something was wrong

Because everybody kept on asking me what’s missing,

In a dream I run at night to the forest. It was dark and scary. I reached a clearing without many trees around. To my right a small stone wall to the height of my knee. 

I was afraid of the wolves in the forest. As I run by the stone wall suddenly a fury animal rolled d...

What’s on your mind? 

Let’s bring it forth.

Let’s put it on the surgery table. Let’s pull the pieces apart.

Let’s tinker with the pieces.

Perhaps we’ll understand why.

Why is this piece here? Why does it bother you?

Where did these parts come from? Why are they still here?

What you want defines the distance between you and it/them. There is a process to get there. If you don’t have a process you need to cultivate one. If you have a process trust it. It will embrace you, take you in, and cradle you all the way to its finding.

Loneliness is a place

Without secrets. 

The yearnings of the heart

Revealed and speak loudly. 

What is loneliness

but a heart’s wish

to have someone

who can help us

carry our difficulty.
