Every one of us has experienced a person that is trying to numb us down in any way, shape or form possible. In your own blessing, they try to curse you out of envy, hatred or jealousy, which all stem from feelings of fear. In any teaching we can see that the teachers have to […]
Words like intuition are abstract and often change based upon the personal biasses of the recipient. Just like universal truths are translated in an abundance of religions and mythologies, is all that is from the mysterious world put into rudimentary brackets of words and images. The truth, therefore, will always be a rounded off truth […]
In order to seek growth we need to embark on fresh challenges that stimulate us into new territories of growth. By moving into unknown areas of inner or outer exploration, we initiate ourselves into a learning curve for a new skill, craft or education. Mediocrity and stagnation comes fort out of comfort, whatever that means […]
Probably one of the strongest induced imprints in our culture today is that of the American dream. The well coined ‘good life’ is oftentimes related with an unlimited supply of abundance and material goods, without considering the pro’s and con’s of this dream, do we might fall in illusive fantasies. According to the Maslow pyramid, […]
Have you ever come across someone who is older then you and thinks he or she is better or wiser? If that person was really ahead of you in terms of wisdom or whatever, then he or she must now that there is no hierarchic relationship at all. The systems of hierarchy stem for our […]
Emotions or energy in motion have been rejected in the past, but breath new life in this upcoming age. Without addressing energy we can never be healthy. It is like cleaning your house, there are multiple layers of dust collected that need to be removed. Who would want a house that is only half cleaned? […]
The only real thing that the personality is meant to do, is to take care of the body properly. Not because out of narcissistic purposes, but because it then serves a greater instrument for the higher self to express itself. Taking care of the body solely out of narcissistic reasons is limiting and unfulfilling. Taking care […]
Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it very beautiful in his following quote; Who you are speaks so loud, I cannot understand a word you are saying. Whenever you find yourself in an irrational argument of fear, anxiety, misjudgement and miscommunication, you can use this wisdom very effectively. Instead of putting yourself in a reactive state, mirroring […]
Humility is the stepping stone to greatness and mastery. A humble person knows that he or she “knows nothing”. Their is willingness to listen, respect, appreciate and learn. Being humble is having the self-knowledge to examine ones own flaws and imperfections. Life humbles us in showing us the ramifications of freedom of will and choice. […]
Growth requires stimulus, and stimulus is what essence seeks. What is interesting is that we need little reflection to assimilate our stimulus of life. We are like junkies riding on the change train, restless beings who never seem content. The rat race and consumption based society reveals it all. The possibilities of world citizenship and […]
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.
