Bittersweet truth

One of my colleagues saw me eating raw cacao beans the other day. She asked me what it was, why was I eating it and if she could have one. I told her cacao is a superfood, it has the highest concentration of anti-oxidants and I offered her a few. After she chewed on one she spat it out, went to buy a “normal” chocolate and said cacao tasted terrible unlike “real” chocolate. She asked me how can I like something that bitter?

Unprocessed god (raw life)

Is it possible that we take and use something as it is, without processing, modifying or interpreting it? Is it possible to take a bite out of the raw life? To really mean and eat what we are, we better simplify.

Open up any “holy” book and you shall find definitions, commandments, laws, interpretations, but not life itself. Words become coloured glass, through which we interpret, label and look at life. This includes our thoughts, feelings and food.

If I bite into an apple I do not want to taste wax… …

Marketing that helps

Are we sensitive? Are we being desensitised by the world we created for ourselves? Is it necessary to be sensitive?

Marketing that helps

To be sensitive is being capable of sensing things. We all are sensitive. In the same time we all are desensitised because we choose not to have “feelings”. It is too much to see suffering printed on the front page of every newspaper, just to sell advertisement. …

Si vis pacem, para bellum 1

How an earth are we to live in peace in a world where there is conflict, doubt and self-assertion? Which peace is more important: the world-peace or the peace in one’s heart? Should we wait until the world around us settled down before we sort ourselves out?

The soft stuff 2

My father told me once, “To tell a woman everything about yourself is weakness”. For a long while I believed him. I did not know any better. He did not know any better. I walked on the street trying to look tough, trying to feel I am stronger, better and all the rest. Until one day…

Years ago I got a wakeup call in the middle of the day. …

Anger, the dog 1

It happens from time to time. We thought we chained it, locked it up, but that dog again managed to break free and tear apart our day. How do we control it? Can we even control it?

A death you own

f someone’s father has just died we say that “his/her father’s death” did this or that to that person. When we are saying that do we mean that his/her father actually owned his death? Is it the same as “my life” or “your life”? Is it that we claim a slice of the big Life and we believe it to be ours and by using the same point of view we think we own death?

How we live “our” life defines “our” death or “My lifestyle determines my deathstyle” …

The Wrong Question

Message to the One Who Lives

No matter what happens to others you have to live with that. Humans born, live and die. This is life and part of it is death, not the end just different state. You may interpret it as “matter never gets lost it is merely being transformed” or to be more precise it is the energy. If you want to make your life easier then spend the rest of the days the best you can. This is something you can do.

One must know one’s limits. You cannot feed all the hungry, you cannot stop every bullet, you cannot save all the whales and solve others’ problems and you cannot change others. But you can choose how you interpret life and how you live it. …
