Nature is our example. Yet it is not always that easy. How do you learn to receive life again when you have stopped because of disappointment or fear?

"Nature is my teacher

That's how wise the reeds are, to me

She bends when the wind blows

Without that, it is calmness what you see

Towards life is her bow, and yet

Acceptance on the horizon

I admire her like that

But to bow, I don't know how "

A poem that I wrote about the lives of many on my path. To bow to your parents who gave you life, moving on in spite of the waves of a storm, endure silence, accept what is. It can be a small step, but sometimes an almost impossible one. Be brave and try to bend at your own pace. And just as deep as is appropriate in the moment.

Being brave and to bow is a huge thing. It is something that we naturally do as a child. We reach out, without thinking about it. Only, if this is interrupted every time, we will stop. Imagine a child stretching his arms out to a parent. But the parent does not see it. Time and again the child experiences the movement of outstretched arms and the emptiness that follows. Over time, the child does not dare to trust that the parent will be there when it reaches out to them. And in the long run, the child no longer even dares to ask for it.

And then we renounce it, we no longer make that movement of the outstretched arms. And in the end our body forgets, as it were, how to do that. We become more rigid and bend less easily with new storms in our lives.

At Systemic Work we go looking. Where did this interruption take place? To which system did you belong then? Where do we see this pattern today? In which systems?

It is mainly about experience. The good thing is, you can gain new experiences.

It's about finding a balance between your body and old patterns. The body is wise. Together we learn what she sees and how you can turn this into something constructive. Bending again, allowing the reeds and life to do its work. To dare. At least a little bit.
