Remember: you are not your thoughts and not your feelings

Remember you are not your thoughts and you are not your feelings. Any emotional or mental strain that you are experiencing does not reflect who you are. Thoughts and feelings only appear as objects in awareness without your choosing. Shifting from a place of constantly confusing all your thoughts and feelings with the truth of who you […]

Remember who you are…

Remember who you are. An intricate part of the divine flow. Like the branch is already a part of the tree, you already belong. Nothing to do. Nothing to believe. Only to remember. Sometimes the branch forgets it is part of the tree. Leaves come and go. Flowers come and go. Storms come and go. […]

Allowing your BEINGness… (video)

As the world is slowing down my video below is an invitation to connect to your BEINGness beyond all the thoughts and feelings running through your awareness… Hope you are well and safe! Lots of love, Renier

The desert invite…

Welcome to the great undoing. The desert will find you. It arrives on its own time despite your fantasies of how life should play out. Surrender to the inevitable. Beware it will strip you of what is not you. Of what is serving you no more. Of everything, you don’t need. Away from all your […]

Befriend your inner critic.

I don’t believe in such a thing as life-hacks. What I’ve seen in my clients and my own life is that what matters most has no shortcuts. You have to live and be present to all the ups and downs of life to develop depth and substance. That said learning to befriend your inner critic […]

Valentine’s day: The ultimate LOVE

Dear courageous one, Despite everything that you have done or not done that you regret, you are worthy of practising unconditional love towards yourself in this very moment.

Your worth can not be measured.

Think about this for a moment… Important to notice here that the moment you start measuring your worth you start entering the domain of subjective storytelling. In essence, whether you think you are worthy or not is just a story […]

More of what?

In mindfulness circles the word more kind of has a bad reputation. This I regard as quite appropriate in our consumerist society where most people unconsciously measure their own worth against their ability to acquire more wealth and/or material possessions. I just celebrated my 39th birthday and want to focus on the positive side of more:  I’m […]

Meeting Miss Daisy

I had the privilege of meeting Miss Daisy while taking my friend’s dog for a walk this past Saturday. She is such a joyful soul and crept straight into my heart… Daisy’s life recently took an unexpected turn: Two weeks ago she got hit by a car while running across the road full of excitement […]
