Being faced with an empty piece of paper is a very frightful sight. There’s no saying what will come out, what will be written. Will it be any good? Is there any way of knowing? Is there any point in writing if you don’t know for sure that it will be a marvelous thing? I think starting is the most difficult thing there is. Probably in any area and domain of life.

Creative undertakings are the most frightful and difficult precisely because every single time you sit down to write something, a poem, an essay, a song, you always start…

I find myself writing this section of the book because of a feeling of disappointment and, at the same time, some kind of astonishment. I am amazed when I see how easily people have accepted such a distorted view of life, for which they — at least partly — hold their ‘saviour’ Jesus Christ responsible.

We rarely ever experience life directly. We instead see it through our beliefs and convictions. Our beliefs get continuously reinforced over time, because we always seek to prove them, to both, ourselves and others.

The issue is that when we look for proof for our…

Writing about this subject is no easy thing. People are very sensitive when it comes to this subject. This is because we tend to get very emotionally attached to our image of ourselves, to our persona. Our religious or spiritual identity is also a big part of this image. So no wonder then that we tend to get very defensive when other people express opinions that differ from ours in this area.

Religion is a big part of who we are. Whether we are religious or not now, makes little difference to this fact. Religion deeply shaped the structure and…

I really don’t know how to begin. I’ve been meaning to write for such a long time now. Almost two years have passed since I have last written something more than a blog post. There weren’t so many of them, either. But aside from the fact that I had a lot of work to do for Odeen, my startup, I also think that I didn’t write in all this time because I was afraid.

I was afraid that what I would write — if I indeed tried — would have not been very good or inspired or inspirational or helpful…

I’ve got the feeling that this article will be something totally different from what I’ve written before. Still not sure yet what it’s going to be about or where it will take us/me. It’s not bad to start like this, contrary to what others might think… I like not knowing what I am going to say. In this way, I can learn. …

I’m going to demystify relativity here. Because you always hear nowadays, “everything’s relative”. Mostly as a justification, sometimes as an intention to get out of a conflict. But we rarely ask ourselves what relativity is, what it means. It is not such a complicated philosophical concept that you couldn’t understand it. Einstein was no greater than you are. It wasn’t through some kind of extraordinary knowledge that he arrived at this conclusion. I don’t think that it was through reading hundreds or thousands of books (or however many books he read) that he came to understand relativity. It wasn’t a…

We have a lot to say about this topic, and it’s difficult to explain, seeing you are dull of hearing. Although you should have been teachers by now, you need someone to teach you again an introduction to the basics about God’s message. You have come to the place where you need milk instead of solid food. Everyone who lives on milk is not used to the word of righteousness, because they are babies. But solid food is for the mature, whose senses are trained by practice to distinguish between good and evil.

Hebrews 5:11–14

In the passage from Hebrews…

A bit on the poem I wrote the other day. It seems that while the first verse kinda’ came out and I just had to put them on paper, the rest of the poem didn’t work like that. For writing the rest of it, I had to think about and decide where I want to take it next, what I wanted to communicate next, and not focus on the rhymes. Doing this was almost like setting a track for my brain to operate on. …

Many of us are absolutely and completely sick of this tired ol’ book. Some of us find it utterly irrelevant in this day and age. I used to find myself in both of these categories. People are sick of it because it was probably stuffed down their throat from a very young age, whether they wanted it or not, whether they were curious and interested or not. …

Yesterday I wrote a poem that was awesome. Well… ok… not objectively awesome, whatever that means. It was awesome to me. It felt amazing writing that thing. It felt amazing reading it afterwards and noticing how cool it was. I can afford to say this. I don’t know if I’d say it the same way if somebody would hear me or read this text. Maybe that’s a problem. We sacrifice sincerity, truth, authenticity for the fear of risking appearing too smug, or for the fear of offending someone. We feel that modesty is the way to go in our outward…
