“In the moment of fear, you can choose. You can always choose.
With calmness and stability you can think clearly. With clarity you can predict the storm, and its strength. By standing still, you can observe your own strength.” said the old Bosnian woman.
After the war had ended, I worked in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina on helping the growing numbers of homeless and sick animals.
Not much worked in the area, the elevator, and my flat was on eight floor. My stove had only one burner working, I had to wash my clothes in the bathtub. However, the heat in my apartment was on full speed. It was tropical-hot. In every home I visited, it was tremendously hot. No one wanted to freeze anymore.
Nearly every survivor said the same thing. “The worst feeling was freezing!”
One day I got sick with a high fever. The Bosnian woman, who had become like a mother to me, came up to my apartment on sniper alley. With her she had two beautiful bright yellow lemons, and some leaves with white flowers on. In my small kitchen she started to brew tea with her expensive lemons and handpicked flowers. She smelled the flowers and I saw her smile. In her face I could see the love and thankfulness towards the herbs. She handed me the cup telling me to drink slowly, to feel the strength returning back inside of me.
“When chaos is in the world you have to relearn how to live with Nature.”
This is my pack!
Every early morning are they gathering together in my office to attend our meditation.
It’s an amazing and powerful feeling, when they also”lower” themselves into a pleasant deep meditation.
Occasionally, I hear one of my Seniors snore peacefully in the background. That is a wonderful heartwarming sound to hear.
After twenty minutes mostly of us do the stretch, then breakfast. What a great way to start the day!
I love my pack of “mini Buddhist” as I have always called them.
Everybody that knows me, know my passion for Animals. I love all Animals, however, there is one certain thing/ feeling that makes my heart pound extra.
To help those in need.
I love to follow the Animals transformations. Their trust, their way of being in the moment and their way of giving clear messages. (They don’t roll their eyes when I don’t get it the first time)
1999 in Sofia, Bulgaria was Animals Without Limits created, and I have since then been fighting, and loving, and rescuing Animals (and some people along the way.)
It’s been a road of tears and laughters. But mainly a job for my heart. My heart is my guide, the one I follow.
Of course there is also Humans involved.
Every day, good and bad experiences, and everyone teaches me something each day.
I do my best to stay focused on the good ones.
Mr. Jörg and his lovely wife Mrs. Katrin Helber are amazing people. They truly have a huge heart for Animals .
Jörg created a new AWL logo, and business cards.
Quick and despite having a lot of work, did he treat AWL as we also were one of his important clients.
That is big and beautiful when someone makes you feel as important as anyone else.
