We Think Differently!

We think differently!

And of course it is perfectly OK!

We are different … though we are more alike than different …

Thoughts need to be reflected … the more the better … words and pencils are more creative and more human than bombs and swords … (mer…)

Stuck on Top

Are you climbing to reach the top … ?

Then I think you are on the wrong way … or track …

when climbing
be sure to find your way – not
stuck on a top

… find another way … without that top … go on climbing …

If not … you’ll miss that essential … and got stuck …

I Nöd och Lust

Jag behöver verkligen skriva! För mig är det … liksom att …. titta på mina tankar …

jag skriver
för att betrakta mina tankar
i vilsam ro

… ungefär så är det.

Jag behöver sannerligen skriva! För mig är det … liksom att … skriva det jag tänker … och ibland blir det lite tokigt … som tur är …

jag skriver
precis vad jag tänker
helt spontant

… för det får det.

Skriva är livet … för livet … i livet …

jag skriver
för livet i varje steg
lätt och tungt

… i nöd och lust.

Body – Earth – Air

I get a little disturbed by god-talking I must say … I would like a totally secular world … I really would … sure of a more human friendly and earth friendly if so …
-Religions twist people’s minds! … for sure, I think.

putting belief
outside your self – unforgivable
betrayal
new gods like ancient
are for leaving behind

It can be seen everywhere … and during all times … another way is to experience the nature … the pure nature … close as macro and micro … calm and furious … friendly and aggressive … with open eyes … you will find its spirit everywhere …

in the eye
of hurricanes and bees
a nature heart

… sometimes harder to read … but there always is an understanding to find out … a problem to be solved … for new problems to find …

with knowledge
you may find wisdom to act
sustainable
for tree roots to run old
for bees to pollinate

… far out and deep down … and also in between … start close … body – earth – air ….

Now I think … I should be more poetic … relate more … picturing more … using nature … symbolic way … I should …. but …

… sometimes mood is like that … and sometimes like this …

Isn’t it amazing how the raindrops are kept … and sooner or later … running together …  down … out for life …

Good Feel

When I read a blog post, an article, or what so ever … I often react to something … and my brain goes spinning … with questions … or statements … or just testing different thoughts … when reading Hoods poem … one line … struck me …

so wrong
to believe desert contains
no life

… ”Or in the wide desert where no life is found” … there are so much life in the desert!

The desert is so beautiful … hard to live in … of course … in one moment so dry and looking so unfriendly … to in next moment flower in all kinds of life … so amazing …

Then I have been thinking a lot about ”the spirit of our the self consciousness” … and I found Kristjaan’s tanka so wonderful … (actually I liked it more than Hood’s) …


old barn
in the middle of the field
so desolate
a playground for the wind
deep silence of no where              (c) Chèvrefeuille


… I think … yes we are like islands … in the middle of nowhere … sometimes … we have to learn and act so we can trust ourselves … gain the self consciousness … and at the same time be aware of … that everything can be wiped out next second … we are in need for that essential … ability of … humbleness … then we earn … the silence …

a solid grain
left billions of billions
to travel
the journey of life cirkels
to meet other billions of …

… life and what it brings … wow … if you let it … the world when being young … and the world now … wow … your ‘you’ then … and your ‘you’ now … such a journey … and still are … wanting to learn more … and more … deeper and wider … from maths to philosophy … from corals in the sea to the outer universe … noticing the patterns … patterns of structure … patterns of behavior … patterns of mind …

holy three
everything’s being the spirit
life of the spiral

… my thinking … so often in my holy three … levels … body – heart – brain … and now I think of a quote by a bright lady … it’s sharp indeed …


Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
Eleanor Roosevelt


… I’m coming closer … the end … I’ve found my place for peace and silence … but I will not … yet … be quiet …

… though I am the kind … Susan Cain named …. ”QUIET” …

… and I like it so much … always have … though sometimes challenging … I like that too …

-What now! … have I written? I think … well … it turns out as i turns out … and I’ll handle it along the way … gaining some more self consciousness along the way … too …

Jubilee of Life

How beautiful Kristjaan described ‘leaving’ talking about leaves … also I got a smile because I have … this season … notised every leaf … still hanging on … bushes and trees … I then thought …

– They don’t want to leave. They are still hanging on .. though so rough around!

… and I admired their strength.

Can I make this a haiku?

no wanna leave
little leaf still hanging on – strong
in rough life

I think some leaves don’t want to leave summer … I don’t either!

‘Leaving’ … mmm … some are very stuck I think … and they don’t want to leave … that safe they know about … for something uncertain … and unknown.
I myself … have always liked challenges and moving to new places … starting new projects … entering new subjects … leaving some and exploring new … leaving some and meeting new …
But …

in the essence
curiosity brings leaving and always
arises new aromas
some inner power in live cells
a push for ongoing evolution

… never leaving myself … my values … never left my watchful eyes behind … never left my deep roots … never left my curiosity … behind … so far …

leaving finally
the destiny of last journey – just
a point set
when the life is at its end
I have written my last dot

… but not yet!

I still have some question marks … and exclamation marks to write … looking forward to …

Funny also that tonight’s Philosophy Evening at the University was about life cirkels … ending and starting … leave and revive … among plants, fishes, insects, animals and humans …

A kind of jubilee of life … the philosophical way of thinking … which I like so much ❤

Heart in Love – Soul is Cool

About ”wounded heart” … sounds like it is something very hurtful … I don’t think a ”wounded heart” is a big problem … and I also think it’s something more related to the young period in life … Love comes and love disappears … and comes again … love is the surface feelings … and not the deeper … don’t let you down … maybe you are sad a moment … some days … you decide … you are on your life journey … love here and there is a softer seat … on some trips …

heart in love
when blood is flooding – hot
soul is cool

… nothing more … but beware of your soul … heart is easy to lose …

easy to lose
your heart for give-aways
soul is locked

… but don’t make it easy to lose your soul!

Ps. … I have to go back later and look at my thoughts … written here … I think … maybe … perhaps … I am a little provocative … 😉

Forgiveness of Sins – No Cleaning Agent!

Man kan skrubba och rengöra det mesta omkring sig … och på sig …

cleaning in time
when inside is no-go zone
unwashed souls

*

rengöring i tid
när insidan är no-go zon
o-tvättade själar

… men i sig är det värre.
Hur rengör man en solkig själ?

Något man borde tänka på … så fort man börjar tänka …. eller helst lite tidigare. Något man borde vara väldigt rädd om och värna. Sitt inre näste … där själen bor. Det man från början har eget ansvar för. Det som inte kan rengöras … inte med något. Inte ens i religionens namn … fast några tycks tro det.

”Syndernas förlåtelse” … bara ett påhitt … inget rengöringsmedel!

”Forgiveness of sins” … just a figment … no cleaning agent!

When You go Low

How interesting Kristjaan! I think I wrote the existentialist way in my last Carpe Diem post 😉 … and my favorit in this field is Sören Kierkegaard – the Danish philosopher. He was christian though and I am not captured by any religion. He was wise, I think.  About nature … he didn’t think humans were one with the nature. He thought humans relate to nature. I think like that too. And as written before … humans … every man and woman … is their actions. They are NOT their characteristics … like skin color, religion, ethnic group, ….

the naked you
dressed in camouflage
a snake in paradise

Talking about philosophy like this … you must be a sincere human … not a fake one … Fakes are not worthy talking philosophy. Fakes have lost their confidence! That’s a fact!
Honesty goes with philosophy – life philosophy – the ethical way – only way.


”Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are.”
Soren Kierkegaard


Being ones actions … aiming the honest  and true way … sometimes need apologies … apologies for behavior … cowards don’t … humans do …

Picking a piece from the poem by Rumi … I choose this one … cut a bit …

We are as pieces of chess engaged in victory and defeat:
our victory and defeat is from …

when you go low
I always go higher – armed with
strong ethical code

…. and to cheer it up a bit … yesterday I got a photo from one of my grandchildren … so proud … she won in chess and her dad lost … I answered I knew she would win … the smart and clever … honest way … ❤ … she is my Golden Heart ❤ …

When you go low - I go higher! #byblogfia

Flute … when so beautiful it feels right into the soul … the beauty of sincerity …

There is ONE thing …

Behind a coward man – there is a stronger woman. Ready to put things right. I think this is rather common in society.
Of course there also is the opposite.

People will never make me lose interest – for humans. And we all share our mother –  Earth. There is no life without people. But! Sadly and probably life would be better for Earth without humans.
You know – humans is my favorit subject – has always been. Written a lot about it before.

In my view … every man and woman … every child … boy and girl … are pieces. A lot of pieces! Really a lot.
I just put the pieces together!

piece by piece
put together – makes
the picture of you

That’s my life challenge.
-It was my challenge working with children and youth as teacher. These special children and youngsters demanding so much more …being more vivid  … than the mainstream. I loved it! I really loved – working with these growing humans. At the same time I hated the school system – the political side.
-It was my challenge as lecturer as well – working with special teachers to be.
-It is my challenge in life.

I am well trained during life experiences. Also life long education of course. Did never end taking university courses. In the end I choose distant. I rely on … and trust in … my intuition. Don’t know any time it failed. I have lots of doubts on the way … necessary doubts … doubts to be removed … and …  reset with facts … until then I go on putting the pieces together … one by one … finally the puzzle is complete … for what’s necessary … at that special time …

Being a behaviorist goes so well with life philosophy … and … along with never ending questions. I am so curious!

I’m so curious
I was about you too – now
I am not any longer
left with a sad taste
doubts became the truth

Reality. Just like … ‘facts rule’ … in life. You are your actions. You … yourself … makes the picture of you.
Realizing. That’s how I work. I am watching the situation … from above … when … at the same time … living it. That’s reality!

I love reality … too … 🙂 … it allows me to imagine …

I love to write my thinking … much better on writing it … than talking it … I think …

… and English is challenging me even more … I like that too …


Ps. I love people. I don’t always like their doings and their behavior. There is one thing I despise …
I really despise cowardliness!

The Hunter Philosophy

Sometimes … when I read poetry … out there … well here too … I think … POETRY SHOULD HAVE A PLACE IN EVERY SCHOOL … I have always advocated for philosophy as a base subject.


The more technic take place – in our life – the more philosophy we need … is my mantra.


I still believe that!

Poetry … inspire for interpretations … challenge the readers in many ways … explore feelings … other persons feelings … helps to change perspective … may strengthen ability for empathy … most needed in the harsh sometimes very hostile social world … not to forget in social medias …

How romantic and safe wasn’t my life as young … now it seems to be the opposite for young people. Even when it comes to equality between girls and boys. It’s worse now and this is so sad.

Is it about hunting or beeing hunted. As young I loved beeing hunted by boys. It was so innocent and so beautiful. Exploring each other in a way. Life schooling for relations and love.
At the same time I knew more about boys than girls because for me it was much more interesting being with boys than girls. Climbing trees, playing football, sneaking in to other gardens picking fruits … and I was very good at slingshots … playing with dolls wasn’t my kind at all, not girls ‘backtalking’ either. I like the straight … and I found boys much more straight. Always have.
I am still amazed that my parents let me be my personality. My dad bought me football boots with studs. He went to every basket game I played in. My mother sewed jeans and caps for me mostly.  Sometimes also dresses – me and my sisters – looking so nice in same cloth. My mother even sew dresses to the princesses of Sweden before her marriage.

Mina gamla klänningar som mamma sytt

Dresses I have saved with much love. Dresses my granddaughters also have used.


I’m … writing my thinking … that’s why it takes some odd ways … and I like that. That’s being alive … lively …thinking … about the tiny and great … close and far away …

Back to where I started thinking today ….Inspired by … The Hunter tanka … I respond …

I’m also out hunting
dressed in philosophy
and questions
my belt has many pockets
one secret – only for you

Live and Die

tonight my skin
will miss the hot spring
it seems colder
©Basho


My skin too …miss that hot spring … I would like to sit there with the Master of masters. Talking about experiencing nature – its inner scent. Talking the poetry language.

like the steam
from inner body of earth – onsen
lifts my soul

This is not at all hard to imagine for me. This is something I love to take time for. Both in Hungarian ‘onsen’ and in my bathtub. Probably I will not vist Japan but I probably will visit Iceland where also ‘onsen’ can be find.

mighty nature
mountains and valleys – healthy
liquid for pleasure

In Hungary I have been to many termal bath from Hévíz in the south to Salt Hill in the north. I also have them close here in Budapest.

dressed by onsen
I’m completely in your care
the touch of you

…. I’m now floating away … this must be heaven … this is how I want to die … dressed in onsen.
But in fact I want to end up in the sea. Hopefully my children will burn me up and then poor me out in a streaming river close to the sea. Then I want them to have a fun party – thinking about how much I enjoyed life.

How odd thinking about death when it’s all about pleasure with onsen. But for me death isn’t odd at all. Of course you must talk about it! It’s natural – or you have to make it natural. My children know – so no problem. I will die some day. No problem!

Until then I’m busy living … very busy! Tonight I’ve had an awesome evening. Premier contemporary dance event. Cannot be better!
