Life is a rat race


When you were born, you had this feeling that you “fell out of Heaven.”
You left the safe womb of your dear mother where there was enough to eat and drink. Where you could just “relax”.

You landed on dear planet Earth.
The doctor holds you upside down.
Hits you on your tiny behind (first trauma)
And you are given your first score (Apgar-score)!
But that is not all! Your first book is for FREE, Yeh (You will later realize this is unique: receiving something for free!)

This book tells your Mam and Dad:
“How you need to grow”: “Not to fat, not to thin, not to long, too to”! This is The Norm!!!
You have to stay in the middle! (This can bring your dear mother to tears).

But then life really begins:
“You have to sit, walk, talk, ride your bike” as quick as possible.
“Swimming, dancing, sporting, being a “genius at school” is also “an absolute must” to survive life.
In school being “just average” is not enough.
Absolutely, DON’T stay behind, because then you earn your first “label”!

When you are very young you need a smart phone, or (and) a tablet to survive in this world.
You need to wear the right shoes, and be absolutely cool, otherwise you are out!
All the moms and dads want their children to be the best of the best.
Your life is like living in a pressure cooker. Everything is fast and quick.
You also have to look like a model, wear size 0.
Pass your driver’s license as soon as possible.

At school You have to fit in “this model of living” created by society.
When you start to go to College, to University or start your first job: “You must ALWAYS join groups”!
You need to drink as much as you can, so you can forget everything you did the day before. When you have a terrible headache the next day: “It doesn’t matter, because you belong to a group! That is so cool!!!

Earning money is your life. The rest of your life you live to earn your money. Earning money is your first, second and third priority.
By the time you are old, you die.
When you would look back on life you might think: “Just what was life all about”?
I have never ever seen a gravestone that said:

Dear Lia (because everybody talks nice about you when you die!)
13-01-1958 Lia started walking
04-07-1976 Lia passed her driver’s license
Etc, etc, etc
Conclusion: Lia was ok, but slow, quite “average”
Specialty of Lia; We (the family) must confess
Her hair was always a bit of a mess

During your whole Life, you always NEEDED to “fit in the system”. Life is a crazy rat race!
Don’t be different. Don’t think or feel for yourself, that is just “not done”. Just “fit in” is your “life jacket” for your whole life!

On the other hand……………….
If you REALLY want to live your OWN life:
“Always BE yourself”
“THINK for yourself”
“FEEL what is really important in your life”



Me and my shadow


It can walk in front of me
It can walk behind me
It can hold my left or right hand
It depends on where I stand
Sometimes we become one
Then my shadow is fun
My shadow will be in my bed,
wake me up in the morning, make me mad
I can never walk away
Night nor day
The shadow is part of me
It is what I need to see
It can make me small
Sometimes it makes me tall,
or it can even hit the wall (ouch)
It can feel heavy, and tight
I can see it best in my light
In the dark,
It starts to bark
The monster grows inside
When I let it hide
But when I look it “in the face”,
my shadow needs te be embrace(d)
Then the shadow will fade
Into the shade

Let it be.
My shadow and me,
can decide:
“Will the shadow or ‘me’ be my guide”?

Inside me


Inside me I have my own world

There is a lion that roars

It will open doors

The song of my bird

I never heard

Looking through Eagle’s eyes

I become wise

My little deer

That lives in fear

Little streams

“Open” my dreams

The weather can be cold as ice

When my dear heart cries

My butterfly is a treasure

It shows me my pleasure

My own dove

Gives me Peace and love

My Sun is my source

my life-force

My moon shows me what I hide

My own emotional tide

My flower makes me feel

What is true, what is real

My mighty tree reflects

Where my Heaven and Earth connects

in my own Child I hide

It Is where I want to abide

I have to look after me

Every bird, flower or tree

I have to listen to my desire

What sets me on fire

I ask my body to show

where I have to go

A love story gone wrong

It is true
I found you, eyes so blue
The love of my life
Please be my wife
After a while, I am done
I have had my fun
I can no longer find
What I had in my mind

It isn’t true
Your eyes are not that blue
Your blond hair faded
Your body disintegrated
Your stomach has grown
Between your eyes a frown
It is not fair
Boobs no longer up “there”

It is true
I found some one new
Brown eyes not bleu….



I believe when Politicians begin their career they have a vision to bring a difference in their country, in the World.
I have a feeling “a long the way” they lose contact with “The People”.

When you watch Politicians debate or talk, (especially when elections are coming our way) it is as if we are looking at a bad play. Where actors read the wrong lines. It feels like we are watching “Drama”.
But when you go to a Theatre and when “The Performance” is of a bad quality, you can walk away and ask your money back!You have a choice to stay or to leave.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a feeling that I am in a bad film, you know: ” A film where I can not get out!

Politicians who make “mistakes”, go out one door and……. come back through another one……?
In the “People’s World” when you make bad decisions you are OUT!

I would love to look them straight into their eyes when they talk about Politics.
Speaking about Welfare, Healthcare, Finance or Education etc
Do they FEEL their “words”?
Do they know what it FEELS like to lose a job, or a house?
Do they FEEL the pain when you can not afford going to the doctor?
Do they know how humiliating it FEELS when you need to get your food for free? When you can’t afford to buy new clothes for your children?
Do they know what it FEELS like when you can’t sleep at night, not knowing how to survive another day?

Big decisions influencing our lives are being made behind a “desk”.
I would recommend that every single Politician needs to work in their “speciality field” for at least a year. Working “on the ground” talking to real people (not the few selected ones) to FEEL the consequences of THEIR decisions.

Look at their face
When in election’s race
Not a trace
Or a blink of an eye
When they tell a lie
Nothing is as it Seems
played out behind the scenes
They live a life
Where THEY thrive

Because of this lie
People die
Every day, every night
WE have the right
for no more wars
it will open new doors

People will reunite
Without a fight
The planet, the Youth
Need the truth
It will set us free
And let us just Be

Then WE will Thrive
And have a life

When I die


I lay down my body
I would thank my body
For carrying my spirit in this life
I would ask for forgiveness
For all that I did to hurt me
For living in fear
For living in stress

I would ask forgiveness
For the wrongs I did to others
and ask them to let me go
To let me fly in freedom

When I would look back on my life
I would have no regrets
I did what I had to do
Making the best choices
Knowing what I THEN knew


A river

I am a water drop
And I can not stop
I always go
With the flow
Please hear:
“Do not interfere”
Let my river grow
On the surface you can row
On a summer day
People swim and play
Children splash
leave no trash
On my river bank they build
Without any guilt
But when I become fierce
people shed their tears
because of the damage I cause
Through my enormous force
Nature deserves your respect
People need to re-connect
It is our “duty”
To see her beauty
My river flows to the sea
Just let me be

Think of all these water drops
It never stops!
