On Self-Expression

All art is self-expression. It is the boldest form of self-expression. The very purpose of life is consciousness seeking to express itself in the most elegant and relevant to itself manner.

Self-expression possesses a profound capacity for healing and recovery as it externalizes conflicts and makes them visible and tangible. It blends illusions, faith, fear, hope and curiosity into an intentional call for attention. It is self-validating and self-sufficient, yet enjoying the energy of being noticed, watched, seen and discussed.

It was Amanda Palmer who said that no one wants to be looked at but we all yearn to be seen. Yes, seen, not just looked at.So does art. So does any form of self-expression. It becomes alive when it is given a form and attention. It is organic, transformative, powerful. It is a process of finding a place in the universe rather than an entity striving to get respect.

The ultimate form of self-expression doesn’t demand permission or approval. Its purpose is not to im…

The Bookshelf Poem

The Artist's way is to Show your work and Start with why or  A more beautiful question. The art of noticing invites you to embrace Paradoxical thinking, and  Stillness is the key to practising Essentialsim: prioritizing your life around what truly matters. If you think like a futurist,  A 4-hour work week is enough, Especially if you could master fifty proven ways to be persuasive. Changing on the job will guide you to a new working identity. All transformation is a question of willingness and Mindset. Compile your own little book of talent And cultivate a new growth mindset.  Gamestorming can be your path towards learning by Leading from an emerging future with other Rebels at work.

They are the business model generation with a Value proposition design for the  New business model "You". -- The bookshelf poem was written according to the rules below. It is a playful attempt to integrate titles into a…

To Transform Yourself is To Transform Everything

The ability to transform ourselves holds the key to transforming what is around us too. If we view life as a series of collisions with the future, then it does make sense to explore in more depth what is and cultivate a greater clarity of what we desire. It also seems wise to remove any obstacles so that what we have envisioned can find us.

"The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas." - Terrence McKenna


Stirring mental waters until new islands of awakening start emerging is not for those prepared to explore familiar landscapes. Ultimately, many are not here to follow the rules of someone else's game but to craft a whole new one of your own.
A new game begins by learning to look at things from a fresh perspective and asking new questions. To put it shortly, it all begins with allowing your creativity to find you. Courting it, inviting it to join you on your jo…

Life - Transforming Questions

If the quality of our life depends on the decisions we make. And the quality of our decisions is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask, what are the questions that could lead us to the greatest breakthrough in life?

Here is a (never complete) collection of questions I believe can assist you in moving forward and transforming your life. You don't have to try and answer all of them. Instead, feel free to browse through the list and contemplate the questions that resonate with you at this moment.

The questions might be used also as journal prompters and in practising meditation.
What do you stand for?What person do you wish to become?If thoughts shape reality, what would you like to think about that would help you move forward?If you'd have to do the impossible with nothing, where would you start?Who are you without the doing? Who are you when you just are?If you could re-imagine and transform their life just by visualizing and thinking, what would your thoughts …

On Truth and Poetics

Poetics is a form of faith and trust.Sometimes, we feel we need to hide in the thoughts of others in order to find out who we really are. Could it be because it seems easier to look at mirrors than into them? Or because we’re afraid that if we’d look deep enough, we’d be confronted with emptiness. Or perhaps, we fear the possibility of finding everything we need inside of ourselves and never be willing to look outside again.Other people are the mirrors we trust before we learn to trust ourselves. Mirrors, made of thoughts, narratives, principles and actions. Mirrors willing to reflect the inventory of our own imagination. A myriad of unspeakable longings and dreams, boldly promising to come true. A cascade of emotions captured by moments, inexplicable in their clarity, from a sense of eternity to the feeling that we, too, have become a mirror to the soul of another. Isn’t this all that matters?Sometimes we’re fortunate to get a glimpse of the truth.We feel it is here, and without aski…
