I've change "about me" a lot. I change a lot and it's counter-productive to pin myself down by placing some labels on me. There are probably characteristics to be found but I leave them up to you.
I can tell you a little about the things I'm doing and other things I want to achieve. Becoming subtle is the main one, which means, to become relaxed in any situation? I do this by the use of some tools, one of them being Tai chi and Qi-gong, I practice and I try to keep it up every day. Another one is art, digital, as I like it. I'm an artist, you're an artist, the only difference is, yet again the label, but I kinda like this one.
The art goes together with philosophy which I'm trying to bring together. Together with a lot of other things. Maybe we can talk about it, seems better then to write my whole novel down here.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Maybe to meet, talk, connect, share with you.
There are some main topics in my life being:
Metaphysics, I've had a keen interest in occult and esoteric topics from an early age. They were and are my true motivation in life, the others are complimentary. It is the totality of life, which is a magical and endless thing, so everything is basically confined within this topic.
Art, I like expressing myself outward, the internet being the way I spread my virus/meme. Throughout the collective unconscious, therefor the name collective unconscious 3D http://pieterjossa.tumblr.com/.
Healing, sustainability, health. I try to eat healthy (no meat, no alcohol) but I tend to give me space, to not pin this to hard. So occasionally I do party, because it's a skill I mastered in the past ;) Otherwise I'm interested in natural building and living (however I don't support the term natural, only as archetypal construct). Healing, I studied some things like sounds healing, reiki, Tai chi, Qi gong, Tantra, Yoga... However it all fits together and non of them are ultimate.
