Today, we put an end to the 7 week mini course HOLD ON., a holistic rule of life to make the hectic pace of everyday life manageable by implementing elements from monasticism.
I won’t keep you long. In a word, this last lesson is about evaluation. Examine. Look back. Are you satisfied? What could be done differently or better another time? What am I doing, why am I in this world? And so you shape and refine your rule of life and start again next time.
No, not your phone’s. I think that is clear. This is about recharging the battery of your very soul.

Wow! This isn’t really a light-hearted question? It’s more a question that you sometimes think about all your life: Why am I in the world? What am I actually doing here? Where am I from, where am I going? What makes me unique?
This is the third Friday you will receive an email in your box regarding the Playful Rule of Life Introduction course.
Most days, it’s probably the same game over and over again. Your alarm bell rings and you get up. And what’s next? What makes a good start to your day? What does that look like…
At the beginning of the year, I promised you to send you a quarterly email to take you along with the Rule of Life. It’s nearly the end of the first three months of the year, the end of March. Did I write at the beginning of the year: “not sure if you had them—a few good intentions for 2023.” By now you probably even do not remember your good intentions! No worries!

I’m so excited and happy to show you a piece of the front and backcover of the workbook about a Rule of Life! I only have to translate it, give me a few weeks! This is a Photo blog about my journey. Enjoy and tell me what you think!
