Dear reader, I haven’ t been writing anything for the last couple of months because of personal circumstances and obstacles I had to overcome. During the process of finishing my bachelor of economics, management and law, I have been forced into a psychiatric hospital because I was practicing some capoeira, movement, acting and free running […]
Personally, I have this great urge to be free, like many have shown during the course of human history. The pursuit of freedom is nothing new, but merely a repeated pattern expressed in lesser or greater degrees in certain individuals and social movements. In order to cover this specific topic of unconditional service towards others, we […]
A big reason why I run this website is to share my own path of self-mastery, and hopefully helping others along the way. I can tell out of personal experience that this path has an incredible return on investment if you show courage, patience and response-ability. I often use the metaphor of training your body […]
If it is not giving you something, why would you use it? Often times, people consume things because it is giving them something worthwhile, at least in their view. Unfortunately, our consumerism society has reached a point of critical mass by which we are literally depleting the planet of her natural resources. This is very […]
Having nothing to loose, is a metaphysical strength that enables us to move freely under even the most stressful and difficult situations. When you have something to loose, the thing itself, can be used to manipulate you, or better said to shape or form you. Manus; hand, the thing is literally shaping you by your own attachment. That […]
A common shared dream is that of travelling the world, but only a few are making a reality out of this fantasy. Most of that is fear, but for many, also resources. I cannot help you with facing fear, except for an encouragement to do so, but I can help in sharing some budget tips. […]
Drugs are, just like any other teacher, unnecessary when you become the master Any ‘thing’ or ‘one’ can be a teacher for us. There is a great deal we can learn from cats that live gracefully in the now. The same is true for trees in that they express ‘e pluribus unum’; Many leaves grow […]
Freedom is one of these words that is too abstract and diverse in meaning to define in one sentence. Freedom can be sought in many different outlets. The freedom of speech, emotional expression, sexuality, movement, attachment and more are all very different in meaning but the same in concept. Pursuing freedom is having the courage […]
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 […]
Who is your ruler? Ask yourself. And the answer is simple. You are. We are conscious sentient beings. We choose our evolution. No rule, or box can limit your freedom of choice only that of yourself. You allowed limitations, and you can set them free. Rules are illusions, consequences are real. We create rules based […]
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.
