More about the book

Compiling this book has been a special journey. The book is, in fact, a developing document of a free spirit becoming even freer.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can't progress until someone inspires, fires and encourages you. Then you dare to take the next step, then you feel the direction you need to go in. Your vision is clear again and the path starts to unfold before you.

And it is striking that the freer you become, the more you start to feel your natural self again and the more creative you become.

The poems in this book were created completely spontaneously, without any design, instruction or training. They flowed out of me and I wrote them down at that exact moment.

The same applies to my photography. I've had a few photography lessons and I've been photographing since I was fifteen, but the photos themselves are without a technique, they arise from my intuition.

I hope the book will inspire you and move you and that you will keep it close to your heart, for it is written directly from my heart to yours.

By buying the book you are as well contributing to the conservation of nature and animals, as the whole yield is intended for The Jane Goodall Institute!

"It is your duty to become yourself. Because only then can you make a meaningful contribution to the whole."

In my work, I investigate unexpected truths about everyday life—and identify ways we can live from the transcendent to the concrete. In my art I only create from the transcendent, because something else is not possible.


Do you ever love enough? Love is limitless.

I sit here at the waterside and gaze at the horizon. You said to me the other day that I am open as no-one else is open… Yet, is exactly that not the basis for intimacy? Dropping the masks, the defence, the oppression, the inhibitions and being completely naked in front of the other? Most people are afraid of it. They want intimacy but don’t dare to be themselves and don’t actually want the other to be themselves. Always, there are preconditions… A human is beautiful in their simplicity, life is beautiful in its simplicity. It has a certain simplicity… being yourself, innocence, trust, love, openness. It’s pure…

From my beloved’s seeds I grow a rose garden
In the moist soil of my soul
I am the scent of midnight forest
Where he can find me with his open heart

An eternal love affair between two souls, between two essences, born in the heavens
Thriving in the rose garden, nurtured by our tender hearts
The intangible, where we meet, feeling even if we can't touch the skin
Because it is the song of our soul that uncovers us

By Renata Hamsikova

The deep blue sky at night binds us
Beyond all depths
Covering the bounds of the world

It is the stretch of pure brilliance, deep blue moving to deep black
Revealing the light within us through the popping stars

Reminding me of us
Constantly feeling the sweet sacredness of our hearts
There is always light in darkness
There is always love in the world

The light falls from the sky in cataracts of pure transparency
You can almost hold the air in your hand
Deep blue as in a painting of Picasso
The night lights up everything
Every night has a scent of its own

There is no outside
There is no inside
There is us in all

Sakura in my garden

Fragrant jasmine blossom curling slowly in the teapot
Everything renews itself
Everything evolves
Feels comforting

So is the sakura season
The pops of pink
The smell of my tea
It reminds me of us
Swirling, blossoming, changing

There is such an elegance
In this dance
There is such a subtlety

Where fire merges with water
Where air merges with earth
Creating something new

I feel it, this balance
Under my sakura tree

I have never had so many tears in my eyes
Only because I have realized how beautiful life is and how selfless love can be.
