How my Mum inspired and changed my life forever.

I was 16 and my heart was broken. (It had to be cracked open in order to receive the initiation of life.) My Mum said, “When this boy leaves it is because someone far better for you is coming. This is life; anyone who does not match with your highest aim has to move on in order to find his own life and his right resonances. He opens the space for the right people to come in and surround you, to love you. God always wants the best for you and everyone. When something does not work out, it is because he has a better plan provided for you.”

Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval.
– Thomas S. Monson

My Mum was right.

When I trust my life more than my pain and disappointment, things evolve most beautifully

: the man I love, the people I work with, the team I create with.

I must admit I have a childish heart. When people set me up or betray me, my heart is like a little puppy. My puppy heart swallows hard and I remember what Mum said. Head up and go.

And still: each and every time I begin by compromising for less than I truly require, I end up in dead ends. It’s like God pokes me with a soft finger saying: You are igniting another line of complications. And so it was when I refused to listen, creating a chain of complication to create more complications, on and on.

Because we only know what we know
it’s about listening to our soul
and what we want to improve.

We have been taught to live in positions of scarcity that obfuscate our thoughts, all in order to fit in. We swim in a sea of conformity builders, and we fear being alone. So we bow to a minor art.

Never compromise your culture.

If we want to create a contemporary cultural revolution, a common sacred energy flow for all people, we have to make strong decisions, all the while asking for our heart’s weigh-in and always with the aim of making our lives more happy.

: What do I really want to create?

: How do I want it?

: What do I love?

: How do I love it?

We must decide to fertilize our real relationships, our state of grace, and our cultures of quality – and not to compromise them.

First: Always stand for your own. Be joy.

So when we do flirt with compromises? We settle for less when we are afraid to stand for our own.

Instead, create your own festivals of life and bazaars of freedom; build new agreements and sacred structures that support you to be free, to be creation, essential innovation.

You will create a sustainable and profitable world only when you stand on your own sacred ground. There you have magic to give and to make … more magic.

Second: Always provide the sacred space
for others to find their path of true joy.

Networked webs of ideas and thoughts will never match the freedom provided by the clarity of the universal flow. And we are always free to step out when we cannot feel our clarity, our truth, or ourselves anymore.

Our heart needs to be cracked a million times until it’s totally free.

So we will leave our partners who cannot see us anymore. We will be betrayed and left alone. We will be disappointed, saddened and set up.

But we must grant their freedom and pray with love for the others to return to their sacred heart, to place where they feel their essence again and can heal.

We are responsible for each other’s highest aim.

I set them free.
My puppy heart sighs.
I listen to him.

“You will never be alone. Give up all worlds you do not belong to. Return to freedom.
I have a better plan for you…”
