At first glance it merely looks like a method for repairing broken pottery or a design style.
Once we dig deeper we discover a whole philosophy of honoring the beauty of imperfection and “mis-takes” that teaches us to expose and embrace our failure.
Kintsugi is a Zen art form – a Zen practice – of accepting reality… rather than hiding imperfection – the cracks – by highlighting and patching them with lacquer and gold one transforms the object to something unique and more valuable.
A dear friend once told me: “In a relationship, once there is a deep wound it can heal to some extend but a scar will always remain!”
This is true and yet, with the practice of Kintsugi relationships become more resilient, grow and heal and once the “repair” is done, they turn into something much more special and valuable than before.
It is our cracks that show us our history, how we lived and what we have overcome. It is our cracks that give us character.
Essentially Kintsugi is a symbol of metamorphosis.
And since I am a metamorphoser I believe in the art of Kintsugi 😉
I am… is the infinite white space in which the human experience takes shape… in the form of thoughts and emotions… just like the soundtrack of a song where you can see in which frequency the song plays.
I am not the song, but the infinite white space. And I decide in which frequency – with which vibration – I live through the human experience.
It is my choice if I hold on to an old song – an old vibration – which is influenced by my past experience. It is up to me if I identify with that old song and play it over and over again or if I stop that song and listen to the silence to start a new one… a new vibration.
Life is like an improvised song by a group of musicians. My melody – my vibration – influences the others and vice versa. And if I don’t like the melody, we can simply change it as we are neither the melody nor the song.
Making love is like the melody of two people playing together. The melody where love vibrates.
It is up to me which song I play, which melody. It’s up to me with which vibration I want to live… now.
So, I choose to tune in to the vibration of infinite love.
When we first met I was 23. I had just graduated from university and was just about to start living the life I thought I had to. But then I met you 😉
Your path inspired me to live the life I love.
And then, 16 years later you suddenly reappeared in my life. You were still pursuing your dream while I had given up mine. And at that time I didn’t know what was soon to come up next – my separation that eventually led to my divorce.
During my darkest hours you supported me all the way through and although you had to leave Vienna for your work you delayed it and stayed longer just to be there for me…. Hermano, your support nurtured and saved me.
And with my recent challenges you did it once again 😉
You are a modern day wandering dervish, a healer and a humble pure soul.
You have inspired me and supported me over and over again. But most of all you showed me that living what you believe in is not a privilege… it’s a choice!
Four weeks ago I arrived on the Canary Islands. The weeks before were a bit wild but as expected going on retreat was about the best thing I could do.
I love the work with Kambo. I mean what’s better then puking the hell out of your stomach 😜
With every purge layer by layer you leave behind some of your past… deep routed patterns, conditioning, trauma, etc.
Kambo is one of the most potent medicines for the body, mind and soul that I personally experienced.
So what did it do for me?
Well, not only that I found awareness about some of my ill-making patterns and was able to let them go. I experienced how strong my mind(fuck) really is. I saw THE light. I discovered the frequency of my heart.
Well let’s see what I’ll manifest next but first I’ll listen to the advice some of the great mystics gave in the past:
“If you believe to be enlightened, just spend a weekend with your family.”
I’m not enlightened but one thing I can say for sure:
One day I’ll look back to these 3 1/2 weeks and can tell how they shifted my life 😉
