Beautiful sunrise yesterday morning
Once you start to notice, it’s intriguing to see everything which goes on inside our body and mind system. Various parts call out for our attention, while other parts try to take the house down and yet other parts try to be the ruler of the inner universe.
Yet all of this happens within one system. Parts may not like the feelings which accompany other parts, or choose to ignore, but there’s always an overview available. The sum is greater than all of its parts. This field of awareness is the ground for all of the parts to play their games.
If one can learn to stay in contact with the field of awareness, integration becomes a possibility. Mindfulness, simply being with all the various parts, not being overwhelmed by the accompanying and often conflicting emotions. This helps to create a compassionate attitude to whatever arises from within.
All the inner riches await us. They may be covered in dark layers of soil, but they’re there. As so often in life, to reach these places within requires hard work, effort and resilience. One needs to learn to deal with conflicting emotions instead of fighting them. Being with emotions, allowing them to show what they’re hiding from us, is a process which can be aided by it curiosity. Curiosity is the key to unlock the treasures within.
If one can befriend one’s inner demons, the inner riches can be uncovered. All the beautiful traits of our childhood can be integrated. Not in one attempt, but as one progresses, each time it becomes increasingly easy to deal with everything which arises within.
All the inner riches are waiting to be explored!
When i was visiting my brother and his girlfriend, i came across a beautiful canvas of a painting by Gustav Klimt. I have no idea which painting it is, but i found it striking. Very interesting patterns and such a subtle embrace. I just had to take a few detail shots of it..
Ofcourse all copyright belong to Gustav Klimt
First two images of The Hague city, in the west of the Netherlands. The first image shows a lot of ministries and the royal library. The right shows the business center with a love of tall buildings and a special construction made for the trams which pass through the streets. Very interesting to be in a city more now and to be able to explore the cityscape. There will be more images to follow, but as always i start with my personal favorites 😀
It’s been quite busy lately. Hardly can find the time or energy to go out and take new photos, but hopefully soon i’ll be able to show you some new work. In the mean time i’ve found this one which i’d like to show. A statue/piece of art in front of a building which creates interesting reflections. Really abstract, but imho really cool 🙂
