I was born in Austria in 1961. 16 years after the end of the Second World War, with
its terrible suffering and total destruction. The people were still poor, but it was
also already a good time. All were diligent and correct.
I had a sheltered childhood. I was not so enthusiastic about the school. Always learning, but
hardly anything that interests children and young people. Always pressure because of exams, and because of
gross miss of the topic, I must now unfortunately give the curriculum designers a “not enough”.
Even if I had successfully passed the exams, afterwards I had the feeling that I was actually
to know nothing more than before. Listening, reproducing, memorizing and a whole lot of rules
learn and follow. None of this made any sense to me, just as well I could have been asked to
can demand to count the grains of sand on a sandy beach every day.
Then I pinned all my hopes on university: political science with journalism and
of course the Philosophikum. The study was not easy, a lot of learning and thick work
write, and yet I can sum up my whole study in the words “all this was
nothing”. A lot of formality, a lot of knowledge shuffling around, but hardly any gain in knowledge and, above all, no
Values and no alignment. This may not be as significant for technical studies, but would be
essential for studies in the humanities.
And I always had so many questions and always wanted to know: Where do I come from? Who am I? Where to
do I go? “Stupid questions,” some probably think to themselves, “he doesn’t even know himself.”
But the truth is probably different. Superficial and uninterested people think like that,
do not ask any questions and accordingly do not find any answers.
I have lived with chronic illness and chronic pain since childhood. And so was
me always in search of pain relief and healing. I looked for doctors,
Alternative physicians, therapists, psychologists and esotericists. I did yoga, qigong,
Firewalking, family constellations, fasting and self-awareness seminars. Some things were not so good,
much was very good. But above all, as a seeker you experience a lot and learn a lot. But nowhere
I found truly fulfilling answers and healing for myself.
I did not believe in astrology. Why should a pile of stones, which is a planet, take over my life?
determine? But every astrological consultation was fantastic: “that’s right”, “that fits”, “that’s the way it is”.
and “this could really be a good path for me,” I kept thinking.
And again I learned new things, and so there is this knowledge after all, after which I was looking for in school, at
at the university and in the media had always searched in vain. Spiritual knowledge that
truth more comprehensively and deeply than anything else, enriching life enormously and giving it a
gives deep meaning.
