Origin and background
The story depicted is inspired by the story of Lazarus. A person dies – and is raised from death after 4 days.
The topic fascinates me – death and resurrection. A return that seems impossible. That power in this outward story.
What does man experience, what does he live through? Is it easy to say “I’m back”? Probably not. A lot happens, people have seen and lived through a lot.
But when I implemented the story, I realized more. I felt, that she is very alive for me and speaks in my life. When I took off these prefabricated glasses, through which I looked at Lazarus, I saw more than a historical and interesting story.
What, if I don’t feel anymore? If I no longer perceive myself and my environment? Nothing more fun, life seems senseless? Then I am actually no longer at and in my life.
How do I find out how do I get back into life?
Basically, the way back is easy. And yet very difficult. Everything starts with a touch. A conversation. An open word. An outspoken thought. And to give space to openness, thoughts, words and conversation. Allow touch.
Conversation is a mutual distant touch. Christian Morgenstern
In the middle of life – and yet everything stands still.
No colors, no joy and no goal.
Life takes place – but without me.
A feeling like a steerless ship.
A human touch.
Thoughts – conversations. Open, and direct.
Beeing touched – a shell breaks open.
I perceive myself.
Feel and touch me.
Feelings. Life permeates me.
Suffering from all the pain experienced.
Allowing. It was much – too much.
Processing and letting go.
The crying has solved. How? I dont know.
I let go – infinite calm spreads.
The soul becomes light.
No fear, no pressure. Just here.
I get up and take my life.
My life – it’s mine! And I live it!
I show myself the way I am.
I am not hiding.
How easy everything is at once.
Joy, laughter, colors, feelings.
Nothing holds me, everything is possible.
I run in the middle of this life.
