We are all connected.
We are all unique.
We are all the same.
The world is like an ever-changing set of toy building blocks with 7.5 billion pieces and there are 7.5 billion ways to look at it. We are the pieces. Sometimes it feels that we can’t connect with others. This is only because we are defining us by the way we view the world. Deep down we are all made of the same material, just like the plastic block pieces. If we open ourselves, we realise that there are 7.5 billion pieces with valid views of the world. This is the basis of understanding others.
To be understood is something all pieces desire. If we feel understood, our position or role in this giant set seems a little more validated. Once we are understood, we can connect with others. Once we connected, we have created something unique and share a similar view. We then realise that we all were somewhat connected all along.
I’m originally from Germany. When I was 16, I went on a high school exchange to America. Looking back, this exchange tremendously changed my way of seeing the world. I gained so much new perspective. I often ask myself what would the world look like, if everyone was going to a different country for a year. I think it would be a much friendlier place.
I’m an engineer by trade. Often when I got stuck in solving a problems, it was a slight shift in perspective that allowed to solve the problem from a different angle or even better turn it into an opportunity. Being able I have a wide range of views at your disposal allows you to think outside of the box.
I realised that a lot of the projects I’m running and things I’m doing, either enabled me to gain new perspectives or inspired others to do so. Within Vast Experiences I am exploring concepts to gain more perspective and open yourself up to new experiences.
