Choose a Simple Living

Self-development is very much about getting recognition of what you are a part of. It is about getting an overview and seeing a consistency in your life.

About Erik Istrup

I write my own materials and translate, and work with all steps from layout, cover, editing through sending pre-press materials to print.

Born in Denmark, I have for many years, worked as a technical designer and electronic engineer, specializing in programming and design. In Nov. 2005, I changed direction and in Jan. 2010, I got a bachelor in pedagogic (social educator) and am now working with autistic children in Greenland.

... and I ponder the big questions:

At some point I asked the question: "Why am I here?" To answer that, I must know myself and "who am I?" pops up. After exploring, comes the question: "Why am I the one I am?" It leads to: "How did I become the one I am?" I begin to examine my life from my birth and forth, and finds out that most of what I am derived from "external" influences, my thoughts, and feelings.

I may, based on this, answer the question about why I'm here; why I am born and live? I can be content with the answer, but may ask: "Why did I choose this and not something else?" This issue starts a whole new quest. However, if I know that life is determined in advance, fate, of course, I have not made a choice. If there has been a choice, it comes from a higher place, maybe God, even if "God" not necessarily is defined.

Where does this choice come from? And “when did I make this choice?” If I have come to the conclusion that I am my body, thoughts, and feelings, I'll be able to find the answer as being the moment where I chose my career or anything like that. If I have come to the conclusion that the body, thoughts, and feelings are only a part of myself, I must necessarily search elsewhere after the origin of this choice. If I am not only the new-born child who has grown up and been to the person I am today, I must have existed before birth. This leads to the questions: "What am I?" and "where do I come from?" So the question: "Where do I come from?" will instinctively lead to the question: "Where will I go after this life?"
