D: Dad, what are you actually working on?
F: I show people how to ride these waves.
D: What waves?
F: The waves that make all these changes.
D: I don't see any waves?
F: It's like the wind, you don't see it, but you see the effects.
D: And why are you doing this?
F: Because it's complicated and I like to make complicated things easy.
D: And what about riding a wave?
F: It´s quiet, exciting, beautiful, exciting.
D: Isn't that difficult?
F: Not really.
D: Don't you have to practice that?
F: It would be better. But the waves are already running.
D: But many don't like waves at all.
F: I know.
D: So what?
F: Oh, it's all about you, what you choose and where you put your attention on.
D: What do you mean?
F: Well, let's leave those out, who think they don't need anything and everything will go back to the way it was before Corona. It won't. Then there are many others who don't know what they want, but they could find out with our help. Others know roughly what they want, but are uncertain, and make themselves dependent on what others would say about it. They could clarify. And others wonder why they don't already have what they want. It wouldn't have to stay that way.
D: Isn't that complicated?
F: Let's put it this way: The waves make it possible, and if you know how, it's much easier than you thought.
D: Because the usual way of thinking has adopted self doubts, the fears of others and is somehow always oriented to yesterday?
F: Yes and because you get what you focus your attention on. The other pattern was a survival mechanism.
D: And that is no longer necessary now?!... Wow! Does the attention thing apply to everybody?
F: Yes. To everyone without any exception: Energy follows attention. You can find it out.
D: Now I understand why decision and attention are so important.

 

 

More Dialogs between Daughter and Father

D: Dad, if I practice, why don´t I still dare to ride a wave?

F: Because you haven't taken this little step yet?!

D: A small but difficult step.

F: Looks like it.

D: So, why don't I take it after all, I know?

F: Because you haven't decided yet.

D: And what would make my decision easier?

F: Nothing, probably?!

D: Oh no, I know now, ...if I could only trust you.

F: Do you trust?

D: No.

F: That's fine.

D: Fine?! I do not understand.

F: Well, what if you didn't need trust at all?
D: Now, I don't understand anything anymore.

 

F: Smile – Pause- How do you feel, right now.

T: Honestly, I feel like I'm in a wave right now.
V: Ah, now you are on it.
T: On what?
V: On the board, in the wave.
T: Which board?
V: The one that was in front of your head a moment ago.
T: What?
V: Keep breathing and from now on you better take your own.
    The old one was really good for taking that one more little step with its support.
T: Got it. Can you show me how to build my new one.
V: Yes, to a certain extent.
T: I understand what you mean.
T: From now on I better really stand on my own.....
V: Yeah, like before, only now you know that too.
T: Well, partly it was like that all the time, but now it's no problem anymore.
