The whole world wants to have answers. We get rewarded for having the answer. We get to be right, be smart, or feel important. And there we stay or accumulate more answers.
This is a knowledge filled world, so it demands answers. The value is in the answer. You get money or you get prestige. Of course, most new inventions require an openness to see possibilities, but inventions are built on previous knowledge. I am speaking here of the psychology of our minds, and what happens in the mind that is looking only for answers.
In the psychological, questions create openness, not money, and it is only an open mind that can experience life wholly and completely. We do not realize that death lives in answers, and that life lives in questions. You die in the answer because there are no more questions. Questions create a space to discover something new.
The answer is always in the question, and the next question is always in the answer. Actually we do not have a true answer unless there is another question included in an answer. To find the new question in the answer, is to have a complete life experience-the experience of life and death in one movement. To have an answer without seeing the ensuing question is to live in darkness, just in the death part of life. If you can question your answer to anything, not making the answer right or wrong, but taking the answer and find the new question in it, life will be continually new.
For example, if you are feeling down, and you say, “I’m depressed,” that is the first step in healing your depression.
There is a presence within you that does not know suffering. It is pure joy that has no cause. THAT is who you most deeply are. Florian offers to journey with you to recognize this truth for yourself.
Florian will be travelling through the US in October sharing Meetings in various cities. He is going to be in Philadelphia, Toronto, Washington D.C, Boston, Miami, Atlanta, at the SAND conference in San Raffael, in Santa Cruz and Los Angeles.
He also is happily available to meet you in one-to-one and/or couple sessions. Please get in touch with the local organisers to make your appointment.

Join this amazing exploration into deeper possibilities of freedom.
The 5-day ladies Retreat is a space of ladies being consciously together, meeting and explore. Being amongst ladies only creates a feeling of safety, which enables us to drop deeper into being a woman and meet what we usually jump over in our daily lives.
It will a be beautifully intimate living together with time we share and time for ourselves. Times in silence and times to speak.
Welcome, welcome, welcome!
it is exciting and a delight to announce the first Silent Retreat in the USA in January 2011.
This week for sure is going to be something extraordinary.
The La Siesta Resort is located on a fantastic 6 acre tropical island ocean front setting, providing exquisite food and beautiful accommodation.
The Retreat taking place in such a beautiful, old Florida style, laid-back location allows us to really relax from the daily routines and let go.
This is the ideal prerequisite to inquire into what we honor the most: being free, being ourselves and living fully embodied.
Be part of this amazing exploration! We recommend to register now, because only limited space is available.
It's amazing how immorality and integrity are so easily
exchanged for that quick feel good moment. What
has happened to humanity ? People not only do not
value others but they also do not value themselves in
Have been asked about polyunions lately and don't
people have enough problems on their plate just
managing one relationship at a time ? Even if these
are minus the sexual aspect, which in most cases is fully
in play; there still remains all the jealousy and other
emotional drama traumas of mental loops and hoops
to be waded through.
There could be so much turmoil avoided if just this simple
pointing were put into effect and that is to keep sex on the
back burner and find out what values - direction - and life
partner reality this possible union may have. Sex comes and
it goes and when one is being driven by the gonads of
WOW am i ever turned on so this MUST be Love, it is going
to do little more than keep the head spinning and the
mind going and the body revved up until the newness
wears off and that veneer of excitement is replaced
with where did this godzilla come from ?
OK you say but i am not looking for a life partner just a
little fun. What is fun in the emotional turmoil that results
when one discovers a pregnancy OR that they have received
or given some communicable disease ? Or that one person
is looking for a relationship ? There are so many dramas
that arise from this besides once again being driven into
justifications and seeking that feel good moment which is
A New Consciousness: The Birth of Love
Do you realize there is no love on this planet? Do you realize that is good news? For where something does not exist, therein lies the possibility of it being manifested. When we look at the action of the people on this earth, we can plainly see the action is not of love. It is the action of control and violence. Violence and Love cannot occupy the same space. If we truly loved ourselves and our children, we would not have the kind of world we now have. We would not strive to fit into a violent society. We would transform our world into a society fit to live in.
When I say “there is no love on this planet,” an argument or disagreement usually ensues in which it is stated there is love, but that I cannot see it. I say it is the other way around: There is no love on this planet, and the person who disagrees cannot see it. For the possibility of love to manifest on the planet, we have to first see that what we now call love is not Love. It is the mirror image of love.
The word love is used in this world as a means of expressing desire. When we say we love another person, it means that we desire for them to be close to us. We express that desire by making ourselves into the desire of the other person. We do nice things. We buy flowers. We protect them. We encourage them. We make ourselves desired by those we desire, and this is how we express what is called love on this planet. This is not love. It is a mirror image of love.
"Personality is a useful tool but it cannot define what you are. Who you are lies far beyond who you may think you are. That which rests deeper within you than your thoughts and beliefs emanates joy and happiness tirelessly. And that is your true nature. Superimposed on endless happiness are countless distractions of your mind, some of pleasure and some of pain. These are nothing more than concepts believed into your experience.
Action is happening constantly-- movements, twirling tornados--
dancers free falling on the edge of form.
And there seems to be the life of reflection, observing,
but never is it separate from action.
Inwardly focused attention on the source of awareness doesn't
buy a free pass from action or life's constantly turbulent
yet harmonious symphony of sounds and sights.
At best we fully embrace peace in chaos and laugh reverently
when life scatters the pieces of our personal plans
into the infinite wind or maybe just perhaps a plan may sprout fruit.
This is a question that may elicit various answers or meanings. Generally, it means to be aware of things around you or within yourself.
When talking about consciousness, the possibility of a new consciousness may be difficult to grasp when we do not have a clear meaning of the old one.
A new way of looking at the word consciousness is to see it as the content as being conscious. That would be the totality of our way being, meaning everything that is in the scope of our lives.
The present way of being for approximately 6.8 billion people on the planet (all of us) is referred to here as the old consciousness. This is the consciousness that has been the guide, if you will, or the context of our world, for who knows how long. We could say three million years or three hundred million years. We don't know for sure how long human consciousness has been developing; however, we do know it is violence in action.
Is it possible for a new consciousness to arise within us? Not only is it possible, it has arrived on the planet. It is available to anyone willing to look and see truthfully their way of being. Will we embrace and nurture the new consciousness, or will we keep on destroying ourselves and the planet?
Which interpretation, if any, of the 2012 Mayan prediction will be proven correct? Will it be the end of the world, or will it be the end of the world as we know it? Will we destroy ourselves, or will a new consciousness arise?
The word new means never having been before, and yet it is consistently used to indicate the repetition of things in our lives. Perhaps, we need to create a distinction for this word, and refer to it only when something is actually new to ourselves and each other.
This use of the word new to indicate something is new when it is not is the destruction of the word itself. Often, in today’s usage, the word new refers only to a different introduction of an old item or idea. The marketing world understands that people have the desire for something new, and they perpetuate the idea of newness while giving us the same old garbage. We've come to accept that new isn't really new, but just the same old dressed up in new clothes.
The heralding of a new consciousness coming to earth is a prophesy, or a glimpse by a few, of a time coming when we will enter into the Age of Aquarius or peace on earth. A new consciousness can manifest only when there is a transformation of self, which creates the holder of the new consciousness.
