About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Being and accepting.

ABOUT ME

I believe in humanity, we might have differences in culture, in gender, in opinions, nationality and appearance but we all laugh and cry as one.

I love to explore and learn about the world, from east to west as the sun travels the sky.

From physics to psychology, ecology, biology and lots of other ologys.

Also been into permaculture, growing and cooking organic foods as well as growing my own personality through meditation for quite some time now.

My dreams are mostly influenced by epic legends and stories from all over the world and they usually have world peace and harmonious living as common factors.

Currently I work as a mindfulness instructor in Gothenburg and study psychology at the University here. Also been writing quite alot of poetry lately and have some exciting plans for books to write but who knows what will happen in that distant future beyond this moment.

PHILOSOPHY

May my face be a haven for those in harm May my hands touch hearts and make them warm

May my voice sooth My feet pave the road smooth Taking us all, closer to truth

May my body endure whatever hardship occur my mind stay pure, and those in need give cure

May my thoughts bring clarity, realising reality My visions manifest, in ways i least expect

May my tears be a gentle stream to carry you home My mouth conjure words, ensuring noone feels alone

May my eyes be a mirror, for you to reflect, showing yourself without any neglect

May my speech us enlighten, my writing darkness lighten

May my creations to all be of aid, and I remember, they are by everyone made

May we be peaceful as mountain, light as wind, humble as tree, calm as lake, love is all it takes

May my heart expand, my blood stay calm In both laugh and yawn

May my soul, my being, the entity that is me, find its way out, its way in, to where it has always been free

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Had the opportunity to have one couchsurfer staying in my small apartment in Gothenburg before I started my south american journey. It was a pleasure and I will definetly have hosting in mind when I come home and setup my new apartment in Gothenburg.

Music, Movies & Books

Love books. Read alot of books.

Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy probably the best I've ever read :)

Some books about conversations between Dalai Lama and a psychologist have probably been most transforming in the long run.

All the fantasy books who inspired me.. the legendary stories! And lets not forget Tao te ching, all the zen koans and stories, tibetan buddhist books and of course tons of psychology and neurology.

Like almost all music, classical, electronic, rock, pop, indie, jazz, soul, ambient, dubstep, techno, etc.

As for movies: Matrix Studio ghibli Lord of the rings Avatar Anime anime anime (Hunter x hunter, shaman king,hikaru no go, historys strongest disciple and sooo much more)
