निर्वाण (Quieted)

We won’t see our signs out there, in the confusion and dust of all chases. Our being quieted shall allow for connecting to the wisdom of our hearts. Continue reading

The world goes on, regardless. We don’t

You see, there’s this immediate urging of today’s factual existance that requires your full presence. Yesterday doesn’t need, nor requires, your rioting. Tomorrow hasn’t happened yet, therefore refrain yourself from fretting about it. Continue reading

Life After Facebook (Or A Military Withdrawal)

5 days after having deactivated my Facebook account, days feel 5 times longer. Thoughts gain weight. Stuff that matters gets done. A sense of quietness fills the days up. […]

Cast away, she’d been

Something about that evening told her the world was simply at her fingertips. She could not believe it yet. How can you be so sure of something you’re so not sure of? She was. Totally sure of it. And totally unsure. It’s been months and months and months since all she wanted was to be … Continue reading

Live true to your heart.

Fear & Fail Conference Talk, 24 September 2014 Vienna Have you ever found yourself telling a friend: “I could serve tables in a coffee shop or sweep the floors, if I had to?” I hope you have. I hope you have had that feeling, that certainty that who you are is far more than your mere … Continue reading
