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

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

Turtle steps vs. snail trails if you are trying to do sth. with ADD

So sometimes it really matters who says something. During my self-help era, I've read in so many self-help tomes about how you need to take small, consistent steps (merely writing this out makes me cringe). Consistent. Small. In other words – unstimulating. dull. mechanistic. boring. Just thinking about it is infuriating ... like heck, who … Continue reading Turtle steps vs. snail trails if you are trying to do sth. with ADD

ADD coaching at ADDCA vs. life coaching with rich white women

Well Ok, ADDCA seems pretty white, too. (It's just that Martha Beck said her coaching program may look like an expensive "white womens' thing".)I'm talking about the ADD Coach Academy, the first one ever founded to explicit focus on ADD, and that I got lured into because of having gotten a friendly chat with their … Continue reading ADD coaching at ADDCA vs. life coaching with rich white women

Exploring ADD: the ill-defined inner itch, addiction, putting the horse in front of the right cart

I'll do another pain-digestion, self-analysis post though. Just to get going writing again.Also, having "a life" (attempting to interact with broader society more), it's harder to blog without giving specifics and details. Which I don't like. Apparently my concept of "privacy" is pretty inverted – no problem laying my feelings and dilemmas bare before the … Continue reading Exploring ADD: the ill-defined inner itch, addiction, putting the horse in front of the right cart
