This phrase comes from one of the many wonderful conversations me and Johanna had during the first 50 magical days when we got to know each other. We talked about fears and achievement. The first weeks were filled with these conversations that made me experience a connection that I had not experienced before. We opened up to each other with such an ease and this generated trust from the very beginning. In these conversations we exposed ourselves and lowered our barriers. This created a deep dialogue which opened up for us to be very vulnerable to each other.
In my entire life I have always tried to follow my inner voice in order to not be too affected by the people surrounding me. By that I don’t mean that I don’t listen to others and learn from people that I have encountered, either in person or through books, media and films. What I mean is that I as long as I can remember have had an inner belief telling me to follow what I know inside. Have I always succeeded in that? No, not always, however at those times when I have not succeeded in that it has been clearly manifested to me that I should make a new choice and reflect a bit more to get insight on which road that my heart really wants me to take. By expressing myself in this way I mean that my choices are based on me listening deeper inside and becoming more aware and conscious about my actions and choices. When I do that, and I do it in different ways, it is always based on a need of solitude and some form of quietude. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be quiet around me, it rather means that my mind relaxes and my thoughts can have a break. As an example an amazing run on the mountain can open up for that inner peace and calm that allows me to be more aware and see my way forward more clearly.
