Carien: Wake Up & The Meaning of Life

Excellence Reporter: Carien, what is the meaning of life?

Carien: Most people that ask themselves this question will start to think. When you go deeper into the question you will see that you still look as if you are separate to life.

At first this question will seem to lead you nowhere.
If there is no separate you, than it would mean you are life itself. It’s the realization that the feeling of separation only exists in the thinking and identified mind.

Wouldn’t a better question be: does my life have meaning or is it meaningless?
And shouldn’t we ask ourselves: what is the meaning of me asking this question and why do I want to know this from somebody else’s experience?

If you truly and sincerely stay with this question than it will lead you further into yourself.

Than ask yourself again, what is the meaning of life.

It would be a question where first of all, you will get no answer. It would then be a meaningless answer.

Because to find out what the meaning of life truly is about, everybody has to go and look for the answer deep within themselves. You have to go beyond the thinking mind, beyond the truth as you know it.

To hear what somebody else has to say about the meaning of life is just like asking other people: Who am I? It’s no wonder we’re all still confused about ourselves.

The answers other people give you to “who am I” or about “the meaning of life” is and will remain meaningless until you yourself are getting truly interested with these questions. It is then that you want to find out the truth for yourself.

Until that moment your entertaining yourself with all sort of nonsense, and asking other people for the truth. It is like being extremely thirsty and drinking petrol, knowing it won’t work. So my experience of this can only be either entertaining or inspiring but never the meaning of life itself. 

The meaning of life for me?
That you are a being of God. That you are not just a child of God but you carry God within you.

The most important thing in the world is that humanity comes to God, that is worth everything.
That you surrender to the greater self and wake up. Only when one wakes up can one see how wonderful the world is. That you are never alone and always connected and that there is an abundance of love, so beautiful.
There is such an immense love that crushes us all, but what good is it for you to know this from me?

The meaning of life is actually more a discovery than a question, and certainly not a question you can ask anyone else.

You are taught early on that you have to work hard, you have to do your best. But you are rarely taught to have fun in your life and that it is important to love what you do.

It is not important at all whether you are good at your job, a good engineer or a good cook or a great spiritual leader. That is what people all make very important, but that is not at all what matters.

The only thing that matters is what you ultimately do for others. How you are with your fellow people. That you care about the people around you. That’s where the whole answer is.
Look around you, at the people around you! Do you really see them, are you genuine and pure? Do you dare to address them when necessary, and can you look without judgment?

When you become aware that the judging of others takes place entirely within yourself. You will start to feel how much you actually suffer from your own judgments, pride and arrogance.
Just at the moment this realization comes to light, you are born into not-knowing.
That is a great starting position. Not-knowing makes you a very loving and open human being,

It is time to wake up to the source.


~At first glance you would never expect that it’s indeed love, that stands in front of you. You could walk right past it. But when you meet Carien, you’ll never forget that. The openness, the love, the joy you feel, the spark, as if something of yourself is being touched that you had forgotten about for a long time.

Carien did not have an easy life. But she chose not to be a victim, and to find the wisdom within herself. She herself did not have a spiritual master, because the living conditions did not allow it. In her quest however, she would have liked a spiritual master, to be carried by the great power of light, in which everything IS. In the end, one meeting and a few words was enough. Someone awake who was a mirror to her, in which she saw: this is love and it is you. And you are not alone in this. This encounter has made her stand up for what she has always experienced in her heart. Now she helps seekers to find true love and become free as well.

However, because she has had no master herself and does not follow any movement, it has everything against it. In the search for a teacher, it is easy to make pictures and shapes of what a teacher should be like or what kind of life he or she should have had. Other teachers sometimes have many followers, have a well-known master themselves or stem from a long tradition, sometimes a thousand years old. That gives a certain credibility.

Carien has no such history. She’s the one that stands out the least, the one you see the least. Carien is just standing next to you. Very down-to-earth and approachable. She has lived a normal life, raised children, worked, in short: the daily worries of life. It cannot therefore be explained. But you just feel that it’s true love, even though you might have had a very different idea of it.

Since 2020 she resides in Spain, near Alicante. She has created a place where people who are willing to make the special journey inward, can stay for a shorter or longer period of time. In her energy everything is strengthened, in her light you feel a love, joy and openness. You can then perceive yourself better and experience the richness in your heart.

She gives Satsangs weekly, which can also be followed live online after registration. In addition, there are silent retreats on location in Spain, in which you can also participate online. In these retreats, several Satsangs are given per day.

During Satsang there is an opportunity to sit in Carien’s energy, to get deeper into yourself and to make contact with what is really there. Questions can also be asked, which often lead to more inner silence, true connection and a realization: the discovery that the answer has been present within yourself all along. Carien guides you with love through all ambiguities to that place in your heart.

You just feel that Carien loves you, that it’s real. That’s what people are looking for, that’s all they need, in that they become themselves. Love unfolds everything, the connection then becomes tangible. Her love is always tangible.
