Performance based self-esteem is build around the structure of competition, hierarchy and comparison. I think we can all relate to feelings of not being good enough, ‘loosing’, inferiority and comparing oneself with another. We relate our self-esteem to these external things, and, therefore, delegating our inner framework for self-assurance. We fall into depression when we […]
Powers without the required containments, will seduce the individual to abuse them or get possessed by them. However, most people are not suffering from grandiosity, but inferiority. Those who have powers and know how to direct them easily fall into the trap of personal identification and grandiosity. There is a small percentage of grandiose people […]
Sweating was and still is our natural way to release heat and detoxify our systems. It flushes our bodies so that we can enjoy another day alive. Detoxification is one of the biggest priorities of the body. It is one of the primal functions for the sake of survival, so most energy will be spend […]
This blog is based on personal experience handling stress. Our levels of resilience and stress management are different but we can use similar principles and ways to cope with stress efficiently. I am used to sleep for 5-6 hours, work a physical labour job for 9 hours and then hit the gym for some more […]
To be creative is to know how to predict and control your environment. Creative people know how the elements of their ideas work in tangible reality. Could it be physics, mathematics, people or gardening, you need to know the subtle point of influence you can have. Click on the picture below for a visualization: We […]
What is interesting is that we need little rest in order to recover from our daily stressors. We sleep around 6 till 8 hours and we are stimulated for 18 or 16. This leaves me with the conclusion that we are good in dealing stress, or are we? Good stress is necessary in order to […]

Often times we remain stuck in patterns. This also goes for the physical body. Part of being well-rounded is making the conscious effort to move every joint into it’s dimensional spaces. The whole range of movement needs to be addressed in order to keep the joints smooth and healthy. You may think that you have […]
Hi guys, I have absolutely no clue what the name of this exercise really is. I used to do this with a kettle bell, but kind of lacking those so I figured out a barbell like mine would be sufficient. I think it is a great exercise to develop strong postural strength and explosiveness. Both […]
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.
