About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enlightenment

ABOUT ME

A few quotations that I like and think they kind of represent some ways of my thinking / living / self. Then again it´s up to the recipient to interpret them.


"[...]
Because we all share an identical need for love, it is possible to feel that anybody we meet, in whatever circumstances, is a brother or sister. No matter how new the face or how different the dress and behavior, there is no significant division between us and other people. It is foolish to dwell on external differences, because our basic natures are the same." - Dalai Larma

"If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite" - William Blake

"I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best." - Oscar Wilde

"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future." - Niels Bohr

Other than that I believe that a profile creates an impression that most definitely won't be comfirmed when meeting outside the sphere of 0's and 1's. However, I like to think of myself as being a friendly, open minded, sometimes funny person. Starring at a computer screen makes me feel alienated after a while - so let's meet in the real world. I just moved back to Berlin and am happy to explore it with fresh eyes.

PHILOSOPHY

Live now! Something I have to remind myself of from time to time. Be irrational.
I could come up with something deeper, but that would be out of proportion for this little window here :)

Interests

My interests spread widely across the range of things that can be done by body and mind. Let's start with the active ones: I always feel the need to be outside under the sky, might it be sunny or raining, I seek nature as much as I can. Love to ride my bike(s) - I am quite passionate about it (if you are in Berlin, let's go ride together). Water, water, water such as swimming, windsurfing, my latest experience scuba diving. Oh I wish I could get back into horse back riding. Football, yoga, going for drinks, cooking (oh food!!!) to name a couple more. And these are just as active as: Sinking my mind into philosophical and / or scientific ideas, languages, literature and music. I like things best at a plain / honest level. The simplicity of things also attracts me in other things: I like to experience 'natural tastes' in food, ... photography, people.

Music, Movies & Books

Literature in general. Learning about other people's ideas about life, society, etc. Put those ideas into songs or films and I will be as much enthused.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

A few things that come into my mind in an instant: Tasmania, sunrise, trees, the view of the Atlantic ocean from the rolling hills of the Basque Country, friendship, love.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am trying to cultivate compassion and love.
