I am wishing all of you the most wonderful year 2015!

Me on New Years Eve. Make-up and a fresh hair colour may be covering well the indication of months of sickness… but nothing can enervate my smile!  I am in good spirit and my body will follow!

Me on New Years Eve.
…nothing can enervate my smile!
I am in good spirit and my body will follow!

May it be filled with sprinkles of madness and a great dose of magic! May you have the courage to be your authentic self and not to let fear stop you from doing what you love. Make time for solitude. Be willing to fail sometimes, to fall and to not know. Yes, be ready to stumble but be unstoppable and take everything with a smile. It’s ok, as long as you keep following your heart and its own unique path. Always remember your own ground and please stop apologising for being you!! May you speak only your deepest truth and have curiosity for the things that make you feel real.

Allow transformation by releasing old emotions. Give people new chances. Forgive!! Be kind to everyone you meet and met, they come into your life for a reason. Some are meant to stay others are meant to leave…
Stay open for growth! I guess we can be pretty certain that this year, we will again be tested beyond our self-set limits. I personally wish for that!
Looking back at the last two years, I can see how the bad times really meant everything; how they have changed and shaped me and pushed me beyond the levels of what I thought I was capable of. Moments of happiness and grace seem to have grown out of some places of darkness and trauma. I have fallen apart to viciously remaking myself. The challenges and suffering have taken me to places that I didn’t know existed and quite honestly; deep within, don’t we all always know that everything is gonna be ok? Wherever there are dark skies and wild storms, there comes a change!!
May you embrace your storms and let them be the wind in your sails carrying you to a new and brighter reality. Trust!

This weekend’s Full Moon is a powerful energy to set your intensions for 2015.
Have you made a heartfelt list yet with what to achieve this year? Raise your glass for it to be filled with the magical elixir of your dreams. Welcome new opportunities to grow emotionally, spiritually and mentally.

I am lucky to currently be in the Victorian county side by myself, surrounded by eucalyptus trees, wide Australian land, kookaburras and cockatoos; embracing this very special time of the year in silence… In reflection and goal setting. A very sacred and important time.

Yes, I am back in Australia. After an application for a tourist visa and very little chances for approval (due to previous visa issues); someone at the Australian embassy in Jakarta was kind enough to read my handwritten letter attached to my proposal and grant it. I am in deep gratitude to be back in a place that I have been longing for so badly.
Yet my heart is aching to leave behind the Indonesian leg of The Moto Quest and with it to farewell many wonderful friends, my bike and my beloved Balinese moto family…

But I am also relieved to be out of the tropical conditions in order to rest, recover and heal my body.

I hope somewhere in the next year I will again surprise myself…
May you too, blow your own mind!

Blow your mind!

With The Moto Quest I believed in something bigger than myself – a result that grew out of being lost; effervesced from somewhere deep inside my soul.
It seems I wasn’t meant to stay. Not in Germany, nor in Australia or Indonesia… Constantly forced to move; to a point of confusion where I didn’t even know where I belong. But it has taught and reminded me that I am from a place far greater than a homeland or country – the same place you and everyone else is from…

Coming and going has made me who I am now.
This is not the end of TMQ, this is it’s beginning!! The present is now about planning a new route, finding another bike and the required support to continue my quest.

Happy New Year!!

Lets welcome new chances, life-changing lessons and exciting adventures.

Love, light and blessings,

the seed“The seed cannot know what is going to happen, the seed has never known the flower. And the seed cannot even believe that he has the potentiality to become a beautiful flower. Long is the journey, and it is always safer not to go on that journey because unknown is the path, nothing is guaranteed. Nothing can be guaranteed. Thousand and one are the hazards of the journey, many are the pitfalls – and the seed is secure, hidden inside a hard core. But the seed tries, it makes an effort; it drops the hard shell, which is its security, it starts moving. Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. And the seed was very hard and the sprout will be very, very soft and dangers will be many. There was no danger for the seed, the seed could have survived for millennia, but for the sprout many are the dangers. But the sprout starts towards the unknown, towards the sun, towards the source of light, not knowing where, not knowing why. Great is the cross to be carried, but a dream possesses the seed and the seed moves. The same is the path for man. It is arduous. Much courage will be needed.”
