Umbrele nopţii (Diaconescu), Living While Black (Kinouani), and the Berlin Wall Memorial

This is a chaotic post that describes a bunch of thought currents that met in a day or two. I landed in Berlin again, and when wandering aimlessly, I once again bumped into the Wall Memorial path near Mauerpark. I had been there before, but never explicitly to look at the historical photos and read … Continue reading Umbrele nopţii (Diaconescu), Living While Black (Kinouani), and the Berlin Wall Memorial

The multi-headed hydra and the nature of Evil

Not many news on this blog also because since February, I have been chewing on philosophical questions that are not particularly within the topic area of this blog. I quite dislike evil. I haven't had an awful lot of exposure to evil in my childhood, nor really in my youth. Sometimes I didn't recognise it, … Continue reading The multi-headed hydra and the nature of Evil

Retour to shamanism – experiencing spirits and past lives without a cosmology in the modern West

Ok, prepare for an incoherent post. I haven't been writing for a long time again, because of the usual distractions of travel, dilemmas, and dramas. A few months ago I started listening to podcasts from Last Mask Center, based on a recommendation from Wildseed Society (asked them for shamanism trainings that aren't racist and appropriative … Continue reading Retour to shamanism – experiencing spirits and past lives without a cosmology in the modern West

Exodus from paradise and forced return to following politics (comments on Ukraine war from Poland)

This is more a generalised update post. I have been toying with various article topic ideas, but in the end the point is that my best friend has a crisis and can't listen (incl. to my newest theories), and I don't feel like paying a stranger to listen, so I'll once again simply write up … Continue reading Exodus from paradise and forced return to following politics (comments on Ukraine war from Poland)

Why I’m giving my therapy money to antiracism work

This is maybe a provocative title, but I guess it's my conclusion on a quite long "healing journey" – I should start paying the people who are actually contributing to my sanity. I think that's the conclusion because the longer I live, the more I realise that almost none of the problems that have sent … Continue reading Why I’m giving my therapy money to antiracism work

Involuntary telepathy again, and book recommendation on (extra)sensory perception in autism

So I'm too tired and jaded to describe it, but it seems to have happened again – within the same couple of days probably twice. Event for which the simplest explanation is that for some reason I had a flash (in one case of less than a second, in the other longer – perhaps seconds or minutes) … Continue reading Involuntary telepathy again, and book recommendation on (extra)sensory perception in autism

Grief and truth; thoughts on ‘healing’ trauma and liminal experiences

Follow-up to yesterday's rambling spontaneous post, I guess. It does seem that when I really ask a question, internally, kind of earnestly – the answer sometimes actually shows up fast. (Sometimes slow, but this time it's instant delivery.) I don't think I jotted this down on this blog, but a while back I asked myself … Continue reading Grief and truth; thoughts on ‘healing’ trauma and liminal experiences
