About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To unite vision and action into a single intention of creation a world of brotherhood and love without any borders, neither on earth, no in minds. Like a piece of cake, yeah?)

ABOUT ME

All of my life I'm trying to understand how to turn world better, because somewhere inside of me live filling of unity with all sings in universe, and it guides me. The love naturally flow out of it, and fill my life with sense and respect to all. I never stop discovering new things and ready to change my mind. My cherished wish is to see people living together like brothers and sisters, all different, but shining as one rainbow :) As John Lenon said: "You may say that I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one" ;)

PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy is quite simple - strive to live real life as it is each moment of my life. I used to take all thing as possible and not to judge anyone, because at next second I can see that the thruth differs from that I thought earlier ;) The tolerance for me is the basis to develop relationship with world. But tolerance doesn't work without mutual respect and wish to understand the other. So, I try to incorporate all of it in myself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have some thoughts about futher development of this project in the direction of creating more opportunities for closer interaction and mutual assistance, and if it'll be accepted I'll be happy to do my best to help this project to grow ;)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All my independent life (from 21 years) I host some people not sparse than each month, even when I don't know nothing about couthsurfing :) It's a great pleasure to help someone to fill comfort after a long trip, or to provide an experience of a different style of life. I thing it's totaly natural to share with other people things I have in excess: my spase, time, skills, warm of my heart or smile at least! :)

Interests

My hobbies rooted in my life, so it's very wide :) For last years big part of my time take horses - we have three own horses and trying to establish an interrelation based on natural horsemanship. From the early years of my life I was found of tourism, and for that time I already travelled by foot, kayak, climbing, bycicle and etc. I love nature and find inspiration in being connecting with it. I choose ecovillage as a best variant for supporting such way of life, as I want to live, so know I'm moving to a little village 25 km from Polotsk, where we start creating our place of love :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I read almost all the time from adolescence, so the amount of books that I've read is going for hundreds :) It's difficult to choose some of them as more or less interesting, but those that affect on my life are works of Osho, Castaneda, Nitshe, Fromm, Lao Tzi. What concerning genres, I like history, fantazy and fiction. The music I adore is ethno, folk (Melnitsa, Fler, Shmendra), rock (DDT, Boris Grebenshikov), meditation (Enia, Era). The films that touched me last time are Avatar (year, it's pops, but it's good :), La belle verte, The Home, Into the Wild, Genesis, Ron Klark Story, August Rush, Closer, Stardust, If only, Patcher Adams.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most extraordinary thing I've ever feel before is the emotional experience of unity with the Universe! How wonderful to experience the world around extension itself. This feeling that I - a "twist" in the energy field, though, like everything around me. It is as if a myriad of yarns from which the universe is woven. And in some places there are "bundles", which represent from itself all things and phenomena. And so amazing to know that I - is part of the world, part of the pattern on this grand panorama, which means I'm connected with all things on earth and beyond, and somewhere in the depth we have the same basis. And this basis - somewhere in the heart, from which starts my being. Amazing feeling. Previously, I "came" from the head, and now - from the heart. And that's fine! As if to this puzzle was confused, a couple of pieces, something like that, was vice versa, but now everything was in place! At the same time I feel life in its entirety heart, my head is still working fine as well-oiled machine, without disturbing me feel boundless beauty of the dawn, see Figure frost on the leaf, smell the autumn forest. We can only wonder how I lived without it before? And can it really be called "life" or was it closer to bed? But I have no regrets, everything comes in due time, I'm just insanely glad that happened to me, and grateful to those people (and not just people) who have helped me become one with yourself. I have all of you very very much. See you on the path of eternity!
