I Want to See You

January 20th, 2011 § 4 comments § permalink

I want to share this beautiful poem written by Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi with you:

“I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy
of how you whisper

— Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

With endless love,


I am

This weekend I encountered some ‘heavy contrast’. I will not go into the specifics, but I did not enjoy the experience very much. Now that I have had the chance…or wait…now that I chose to put it all in perspective I really appreciate the experience to the fullest. But before I reached to place where I was able to do that, I had to go back to the basics of existence: I am.

‘I am’ is the state of being that just is. It is the basis of your existence from which all experience comes forth. For myself, it is a very powerful state of being as it resembles a state of deep mediation in which the mind is quiet and asks no questions but just holds the answer: I am. » Read the rest of this entry «

We Connect. Today by Technology. Tomorrow Spiritually.

Lately, I get a lot of inspiration from all around me. I must feel really inspired, otherwise I would not be attracting it so much. I am not complaining, as I thrive when I am inspired. It is a great state of being in which I feel my expansion on a vibrational  level.

I am of the generation that grew up in the period that internet transformed into a mainstream phenomenon. So, I know life without Social Media as we know it today. I did not have my online profile scattered on sites like Facebook and Twitter  and did not think about posting videos online. The content of websites was pretty much static, and any interaction with the authors was by email. And that was only the case when the author was bold enough to share his/her email address. So, did I not interact at all online? Hell yeah I did! » Read the rest of this entry «

The Golden Circle Experiment

May 7th, 2010 § 1 comment § permalink

Yesterday I was inspired by the Golden Circle concept of Simon Sinek when I watched him explain it in a TED video. And when I get inspired the subject tends to stick in my mind. Even better said, my mind has awoken to the subject which I already knew. So today the Why, How and What of the Golden Circle concept kept popping up in everything I experienced today.

In ordinary life I am a solution architect, so I spend my working days helping customers to a successful IT implementation as part of a bigger business change program. Today I had an interesting discussion about design documents and how they relate to each other and what information they should include in order for the readers to understand the context. During the conversation it became clear to me that the Golden Circle concept would greatly enhance the success of IT implementations. » Read the rest of this entry «

There is only One True Path in Life

Inspiration has many sources. One of them is music, which for me is the most vivid external vibration we interpret with our physical body. Lyrics are not that important to me, as I find myself feeling the music mostly, but sometimes the lyrics of a song does catch my attention. One of those songs is Innervision from the band System of a Down. Just to make sure there are no suprises, it is a Metal band.
