I first stumbled upon the concept of self-reliance when I have heard Eliot Hulse talking about it. He was inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a great guy if you ask me. Both men apparently knew something powerful I wanted to learn. In this blog I want to give you my own experience and observations of […]
Trust thyself and look within, since no pearl have ever been seen by looking in the wrong direction. The mundane man resurrected into a mighty spark is yet to be casted. Initiated by the lightning force of our bliss and shedded of our infantile skin, do we turn our sight within. The frightening coming of […]
I use ‘man’ to define humans in general. I don’t live with the separation of men and (wo)men. I want to provoke oneness through these blogs. When is a rich man born? The indoctrination of lack and poverty is one of great power and control. Everyone born in a society where money rules our emotions […]
It is a wise saying that we can learn from one another, and still one learns best when he is faced with his own salvation. To rebel in the visceral pain of your own misery and decision is the birth of new found wisdom and strength. I adopted the habit to read biographies and to […]
Hi guys, For those interested in self-development and community development, I created this website to further gather like-minded individuals. I hope to build it into a platform which can be used as a online community centre. It is still in its infancy, so bare with me. I really believe in the community feeling of helping […]
It is a personal interest for me to study language and its function in our psychology and society. From what I understand so far, it might be one of the greatest forces known to us. NLP (neuron linguistic programming) is also focusing upon what ‘kind of stories’ you are telling yourself consciously or subconsciously. Since […]
I just had a wonderful lecture with some eager people willing to better themselves and the world. Ethical behavior is simply put increasing the creativity of at least one person in your surrounding. And I had the opportunity to do this for a group of 10. It might seem small and mediocre, but that is […]
Small disclaimer before I proceed my writings: My writings are based on insights, personal experience and observation methods. You might argue that some of it can be false information since I am not religiously following the scientific method of distinguishing falseness from truthfulness. That is just not in my nature and I more more spiritually […]
The Lucifer experiment is simply put: a weak attempt to consider oneself as detached from others and all that exist. Whenever you are convinced about any sort of idea about separation or pure individualism, then you create a life of unease for yourself and others. Indeed, our world is filled with diversity and polarity, and […]
The students of self-study can come to a stage where book learning reaches a point of intellectual saturation. There are many paths one can devote himself towards spiritual growth of which right study is one of the cornerstones during this journey. Right study resembles truthfulness in all its possible explanations and is therefore a consciousness raising […]
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.
