The universe is always unfolding itself into more expressions of existence. You are also an extension of what the universe is trying to do through you. Unfortunately, our ego often times steps in the way of the flow of creativity. We take ownership of ideas and inventions and we think we are fully responsible for […]
There is a saying that speaks about 'following your bliss'. Bliss or joy are well sought feelings in the universe, subjective and dynamic of nature, is it as hard to catch as the snitch in Quidditch and when you do, it is flimsy and easily lost. My bliss has been writing and exercise for a good amount of my waking life. The luxury of having the freedom to express myself intellectually, emotionally and physically, through writing and movement, is something I highly value. Therefore, it makes sense that my interest lays in open minded and complex topics, like philosophy, health, spirituality, society, relationships, psychology and the universe as the micro and macro cosmos expressed. I find my movement through intense weight lifting, capoeira, martial arts, yoga, travel, tennis or all other forms in which I can use my whole body and mind. My adventures in China have shown me some of the horrors this planet is going through and will keep on going through, since I believe it is simply a part of life, that we can never really put in the closet forever... Despite knowing this, I hope that in my humble endeavor of building an online and offline institute, people can be offered tools in which they themselves can navigate their lives with more strength, confidence, creativity, joy and effectiveness. This way we can learn to grow into unknown territories of love, instead of territories of war, pain and suffering. Thanks for reading my message, Kees
It does not matter if you are aware or unaware of the limitations society is holding up to you. The truth is that most people currently live their lives as limited beings. Sometimes we need to make dangerous decisions to become aware of what is holding us down. We literally have to stretch our comfort […]
Language can only describe so much of what you can feel is true. It is this inherent fault that language has instead of feeling and visualizing abstract topics. Therefore, it can only be used as a tool for guidance. It can guide you towards experiencing the topics for yourself and embedding it into your character. […]
The sailor is just bending the waters He moves with oceans like a leave is floating in the sky He is trusting this flow to move with speed Honoring his strong ship to give his life a meaningful direction Fully in contact with nature he is guiding his purpose Only some small adjustments are necessary […]
You are brought up with this massive conditioning we call society. From already a young age, you are influenced by your parents, your teachers and your closest friends and enemy’s. Your own acceptance of this has often led you to belief things that are not in alignment with who you really are what you have […]
No doubt is their to be said When the heart is at command No fear is their to distract When the heart is that which stand Live it all with faith It shall be known by the head When the unknown of the heart shall be led
”The sentiment of our intention determines the fruits it will carry” From which place you are coming from in your daily life means much more then what you are actually doing or saying. If you make your decisions with the sentiment of fear and negativity, the fruits of your actions will carry the same sentiment […]
”A friend is someone that is stimulating your personal evolution” Quite often we spend time with people that we perceive as friends. Until the day when you are really in need of help. In those times you discover which of them are honestly interested in your personal evolution as a human being and who is […]
” The natural state of the earth is abundance, no wonder men became greedy” Make a conscious effort in consuming a balanced amount of resources you need for your personal evolution. Wealth is merely your ability of giving love and receiving love and should not be measured by your material possessions.
”success is merely a daily commitment to the voice of your heart until the day you die” Spend your time loving what you do instead of regretting your decisions. Free yourself from the societal expectations by committing to your own voice and not by the stories other people conditioned you with. Let the voice of […]
SOL provides scripted and scattered insights and broken tools for every day challenges in the quest for strength, wholeness and prosperity.
It does give the secret sauce away on occasion or for those who have the willingness to understand.
It provides more clarity and useful tools if you give me;
1. A sack of organic potatoes, handmade bread, fine liquor, fine;cut tobacco, tea leaves, fair trade coffee or mountain water.
2. Surthrival equipment (open for testing)
3. Precious stones, unique cacti, metals, art or crystal chess board (certain crypto currencies as well)
4. A piece of fertile land or an island.
5. Special tokens…
Six. Lara Croft?
7. An oldtimer.
8. A maze that puzzles me.
9. An empty cup
10. To be humbled.
In the content I create, I do my best to refer to the sources I have used and give credits to if I am aware that I am simply rehearsing the thoughts of another being. After all, I am no one man island, and it is always a co-creation, even if the birds inspired me to write a poem, it still is a co-creation. Heck, what if my inspiration comes from my alien brother?
Either way, please feel free to correct me if I have missed or forgotten this in some articles and dishonored someones originality.
If not, then the source of creativity is of my own, and, therefore, we have the concept of ownership in traditional economics. All though, I find it to be complex to take ownership, since what does it matter if its all ephemeral and tackable?
I try to be a living example of creating a living out of the things I feel passionate about, and to produce more then I consume. I think this is an economic formula for wealth and prosperity in a world.
Despite the economic airy fairy idealism described above, we live in (gr)needy times of cognitive capitalism, where ideas, thoughts and creative outlets are easily shared, stolen and remixed.
The cumulative nature of the internet has its pro’s and con’s. I think it is beneficial for the greater good of humanity, the planet and beyond that everybody can access creative outlets and enjoy each others life work, but it also means the death of the creative individual if he or she isn’t rewarded appropriately for the hard work that can go into the creative process.
I know I cannot prevent content theft or hackers in this time and age, but I can say that if you steal my originality, you will steal your own, and have to settle for mediocrity, and be a mini-me. Which equals suffering. HAH, Wanna be trap!
And if you hack me, you only hack my memorandums, not the source, so enjoy my memories instead of your own.
I might be lawless in that sense, but the truth is harsh in that way.
Trust me, it is already hard enough to be yourself in this world, let alone to be someone else!
So yeah, learn to channel your creative energies, and bring your own version of love, truth and beauty in this world! Or wickedness, the choice is always yours…
This is my invitation,
And blame messenger if you make a mess out of it.
