HEAVENLY INFORMED

We are all one.

We have one earth.

We are always collective.

We all share the same sky.

Light is information.

And information shall be light.

As everything is vibration.

If we feel disconnected , disinformed or depressed

by channels of information, we have an option: 

We change the source.

As we stop consuming negative news we start feeling positive vibes.

As we are what we consume and we think what we read.

As we look at the sky above we look in our mirror within.

As above so below.

Try it. Now. The world needs it.

One hour, two,…one day, two, three, one months, two, three,…

Four is the number of your planet earth. 

Reconnect to it, grow roots, evolve. 

We are all important parts and here to heal the world.

Join a peaceful Pro-Test by not consuming mass media for a while.

AFTER POINT OBFUSATION

AN ARTISTS REALITY, VISION

I have to admit: In the past weeks my brain did not work properly. I was in a permanent state of obfusation. Although I have not watched television for over 20 years and although I mostly restrict myself from reading the news (as I am hypersensitive and often not able to do anything else but cry afterwards) there was no way of not being involved in all those feelings and thoughts coming from everywhere and there was no way that I was even getting near to a clear vision. And I feel that this is a worldwide and collective phenomena.

I will not talk about the things that are in the newspapers, socialmediaplatforms and television. I will talk about what comes from my heart and inner vision as this is the only thing I can trust and speak about without doubting or overquestioning it permanently.

For many weeks people around the planet were forced to stay at home. It does not matter what each of us struggled with the most. Important is that the struggle is something we learn from as human beings.

And what we learned will change the way we are and act.

I have learned that the time we live in is a time of major change and that this major change is dependent on every tiny feeling each of us is going through and each little thought we are sending out.

I feel that corona and the time before has led to a collective breakdown of trust.

I will not blame a system, a newspaper or any person. As I said: this is collective and not only because of corona and because the lockdown was worldwide.

Indeed this is a universal thing. For thousands of years humans have exploited not only the planet in a material sense but also in a nonmaterial sense. As everything on earth develops in thriving fractal spirals the capitalistic system is just a mirror for where we are now.

Since I was a school kid politicians, economists and scientists have been talking about the need to educate better, to operate economically, to think and act globally. All of us have been talking about the importance of humanity, equality, healthcare, green business solutions, sustainability, empathy. Many of us have learned breathing techniques, yoga, embodiment, etc…and let´s be honest- many of us in this western world have experienced major psychological or physical breakdowns in the past ten years. Because we are what we consume.

We have overloaded our inner and outer system and still we have consciously and subconsciously tried to keep it going. And as Mother Earth is just as us a living and feeling being-we have done the same to her. She has started a little moaning but never did she get as angry as our folks.

Many people and organisations have tried to make a change and still could not stop the “almighty monetary” system from steeling our health, hearts and souls.

Now here we are.

This is our time.

And we need to see it as a chance.

This is the change we have been waiting for and talking about.

This is the time to take responsibility and to see clearly.

This is the time to feel and speak our inner truth.

It is time to do the same that our planet is doing at the moment.

It is time to take time for all things we did not have the time for before:

Remember.

Rest.

Regenerate.

Rethink.

Rewind and Restore.

Renew.

R E A L I Z E

(all the things that are actually already here as we have been reading, talking and workshopping about them for many many years)

For example:

Look in the mirror.

Question yourself what you are here for.

Leave your bubble.

Be true.

Nourish your feelings.

Open your heart.

Cry.

But then. BE HAPPY!

We don´t need more hardship.

We need HEARTship.

Try something you haven´t done before.

Do not step in footsteps for a change.

Ask your fear where it exactly comes from.

Ask your beloved ones what they exactly wish for.

Change patterns you do not like.

Ask yourself: How does my future look like?

What can I do to make it happen?

Do not read or listen and do not watch television

(and even if it´s just for an hour, a day or a week)

I am sure that this is the time to learn individually.

Everyone will learn for the self.

Knowledge and peace will come from within.

And if you need help – don´t be ashamed.

ASK.

This is our time.

This is the time that questions and teaches how to be human again.

This is a time that we and our planet were wishing for.

It is a good time.

And it depends on YOU.

FOR SOPHIE AND THE SEA(S)

Text

As for these times

My humankind

I need to say

I lack the words

So let me use my brothers ones:

 

We called the Earth One Flower of the Sky.

The Sky we called the Infinite Garden of Life.

 

Like roses rejoice in tiny golden dust,

We spoke,

The valoury rays of sunlight rejoice the earth.

 

She is a glorious and living Being,

We spoke,

Divine when crossing fire,

When mild and vivid water

Comes swelling from her heart.

 

At all times fortunate to feed herself

Of dewdrops or of thundery clouds

Which she prepares for pleasuries

Assisted by the sky,

The ever faithful loving half of the Sungod,

Possibly primarily earnestly unified

Though then divided by all-presiding fate.

 

So she would search him, near him, detach her Self

And full of lust and dolour could grow to upmost beauty.

 

So we spoke.

 

I give you the substance, the spirit.

But what is it without the Life?

 

(freely translated from Hölderlin´s Hyperion 1797/1799)

 

 

 

 

APOCALYPSE PERCEPTION 0

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, ART LIFE, VISION

OPEN CALL

APO_1

The Ionion Center for the Arts and Cultures and A P O are calling Professional Creators to think about the words forming the title of this project and produce serious output based on reason and intuition both equally used to awaken solutions concerning our future.

Apocalypse is what we are driven to perceive when we consume daily news. Confusion and resignation seem to follow informational overflow, highly specialized subject, materialism and the loss of intuitive trust.

Perception as the ability to see, hear or become aware of something through the senses, the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted and our personal insight will include and question the knowledge each of us has gained so far as well as train our forgotten intrinsic senses in order to unite and balance questions and answers concerning a better World.

Zero: neither positive nor negative. Number. Start. Begin. Circle. Unity. Nothing. Emptiness. Objectivity…

Plato´s Politeia known as one the first books that influenced western society and still unsure of its perception as either utopian idea or actual plan for a state will be our Point Zero. Questioning how we could read between the lines and translate it to our time and needs, a non-defined hollistic collective for planet-protective and positive perspectives will be our goal.

With the Sea below, the Gods behind and the Universe above we will reconnect to outer and inner nature and work on experimenting and manifesting what each of us as an individual and in a group can contribute concerning our actual time and world.

The City of Athens and the Island of Kefalonia with abandoned or still alive historical Sites are waiting to be inhabited by new Ideas. We will work on thinking models,  and deeply listen to each other,  perform an energy-rising ritual on the Island of Theos and finally document and show what we have learnt from nature, intuition and from uniting our powers in an Exhibition including readings, a concert, film screenings and Visual Art.

Where?  City of Athens and Island of Kefalonia, GREECE

When?   June-September 2017

ALL PARTICIPATION OBLIGATION

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, ART LIFE, VISION

Outside Pluto Activation.

Old and new Visions towards an Abundant Peaceful Outersystem:

For an Experiment starting next week I will spend a period of time in the Artspace Outside Pluto and invite people that are interested in testing opportunities to share some time with me in order to feel, learn and collect not only more reasonable knowledge but also certain kinds of rituals to become aware of oneself and independent in the world outside.

ANSAMMLUNG PARALLELER OBJEKTIVITÄTEN

The space itself will fill from day to day by body and mind, raise positive energy that slowly transforms into art, to move closer towards each other as well as towards a better and holistic understanding of the world inside ourselves and the world we are part of.

Outside will be Neukölln, further outside Berlin, further outside Germany, further outside Europe….Inside will be collected what we find revealed during this time….Outside Pluto.

For the experiment I will be absolutely passive considering any kind of daily news or matter and leave the world outside wishing to actively search inside what I might find motivating or enlightening when I go outside again or even further.

The experiment is timeless and free from any kind of serious obligation or system.

The only kind of obligation lies in active participation of the individuals concern to develop strategies and routines towards open mind, humanness, earth and what we call ALL.

ALLOW PECULIAR OBSTACLES

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, AN ARTISTS REALITY, DREAM DIARIES, VISION

NOW.

In the dream I met an eagle. Maybe the eagle was the old goddess Athene. Maybe not.

Reality let me find Homer´s Odysssee and I had the feeling Athene is calling me to her Island.

Trusting this intuition, I have received trust and help from people I met on this Island to manifest the project that came through subconscience to reality.

When I left the Island Sophia gave me a key to the Ionion Center and said:

„You have found a second home. Make a plan, come back and bring people that are like you.“

Thinking about it now I realize that Kefalonia could be my Ithaka and Sophia could be my Athene. After offering me all her affection and protection through a whole magical summer, she is giving me her total trust and a key to her house that was built ten years ago upon her vision.

In order to use this key in the future I have to study and open up myself even more. I need to ask: „Who am I?“ to find people that are „like me“. For me this is quite a task to take as I am very shy. When I left the Ocean, I found a carapace -bone of a loggerhead Turtle. If this is another key given to me as a metaphor I might interpret it as:

„ I am an Artist. I have a gift that makes me feel rich and feeds people with questions about our world everytime I use it. There are many human beings that have influenced my art by their thoughts as I read many books, I look at Art, I listen to People´s Music and words for finding Inspiration. Many of those human beings are not living in this world and in this time, but many of them are here and I have never dared to deeply exchange thoughts with them. I have not been able to show them respect and gratitude for the impact they have on the World but also on my work and thus my life. I feel the need to do so. So I need to leave behind my carapace I have been hiding in for a long time and step over self-restrictive borders.

I feel now is the time not only for fulfilling a personal task but for making friends, for offering the ones we feel related to affection and protection, tell them that they are the ones that protect ourselves … maybe we could unite our powers and hold tight in this state of total confusion…and cherish some others and the world surrounding us with love and gratitude.

According to this the Atomic Platonic Orchestra is like a life-game. Playing it together becomes the symbolic key to make use of the real key.

At this moment of questioning my very honest inner and outer state: I am back to Berlin, working on adapting to the city again without forgetting nature is in me. I am surrounded by inner and outer fog. Still, I am often dreaming of the Ocean. It is grey, dark and wild, but still I can never resist to go in the water. Sometimes I see a dolphin coming out of the depth, showing up shortly before disappearing again… I hope somenight or someday it will come over and communicate.

ADMIRABLE PRANA OCEAN

DREAM DIARIES, VISION

Homer. Odyssee. Detail. China Ink on Canvas

This Spring.

Dream again. I am sitting on any balkony. I look at the sky and see an eagle flying his rounds up there. I think: „What is this eagle doing here? There are no eagles in Berlin.“ The eagle starts coming down. Directly towards me, closer and closer. I am scared. The eagle lands on my arm and looks into my eyes. I see the peace and the wisdom in his eyes. I feel his weight on my arm and the feet keeping on to it. He touches my face, holds still, I start petting the eagle, feel the warmth of the body, the heartbeat, the softness of the feathers. I wake up. I feel great. Grateful. Grown. Old Shamans say: the eagle is a sign for wisdom and wealth.

This dream has formed another version of myself in reality. I now do believe my intuition and inner truth. I will continue my Art without any restrictions. I will no longer force myself to adapt and accept things in my life I do not feel I am capable or responsable of without loosing myself.

This day during my research on the Internet pops up the SEA´S Art Exhibition at the Ionion Center for the Arts and Cultures on the Island of Kefalonia. I read the Philosophy of the Space, I read about an open Call, I stick to this homepage, get exited about the Projects being created there and I feel a sudden need to go there.

Passing my books Homer´s Odyssee falls in front of my feet. I put it back on Platon´s Politeia. Then I realize that these two books are waiting to be read for years and exactly what I am looking for. I start reading the Odyssee. In one oft he first chapters Athene appears as an Eagle. My whole body tells me that I have just made a connection from my dream to reality. I start questioning my thoughts, doubting my perception. To calm down I do my Bathtub Meditation. When I come out it is 4 and a half hours later. Time is an Illusion. Space is an Illusion. Whales and Dolphins were communicating to me. Believe it or not. I know. I sit at my desk. I start writing The °Water°World°Worth°Whirl° Project. I don´t stop until it is finished. I send it to the Ionion Center. Sophia Giannakis-Kagadis writes back and invites me to the Island Kefalonia. A few weeks later I have started two canvases, my art is forming two Nautilusses including the words of Platon´s Politeia and Homer´s Odyssee, I quit my sidejob, I packed my stuff. I went without knowing what will come but knowing it is a calling that will change my life in many ways.

ADVANCED PARANORMAL ORACLES

DREAM DIARIES, VISION
dscf0355

Winter 2015

Another Dream. Anywhere in Nature. Masses of People going around tables full of babies. I go to a table on which I see a very tiny babygirl that giggles and dances under her blanket. When I lean over she moves towards me, grows bigger, her hair is brown, long and curly, her eyes are huge and blue. She seems to be a woman in the form of a mikrobaby. She moves her head towards mine, looks deep into my eyes and says in an irritating high tone: „Are you from Sirius, too?“. I answer quietly:“ I don´t know where I come from“. She giggles and dances and says: „Of course you are from Sirius!“. She takes my hand and that moment we are flying in Sinuscurves without any space and time giggling together.

Except the name I don´t know anything about Sirius. When I wake up I read that Sirius is a star in the system of the Canis Major which was often reffered to by old Egyptians, Greeks and others. Sirius A exists of Water and Helium and some people believe that Whales and Dolphins come from the little Sirius B accompinying Sirius A. But also there are some very wild theories about it that make me stop researching. Sometimes I feel it is better not to know. I start to believe I am totally crazy. But also I start to believe that some old folks and some other mammals we share our planet with know much more than us.

ABIDE PERSEVERE ORIGINALITY

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, AN ARTISTS REALITY, VISION

°°WORLD°°

As a child I was a spiritual and thoughtful being that just couldn´t get rid of the feeling that it was thrown on a planet it does not belong to. From the age of one I was told by familymembers and doctors that I am almost blind. Influenced by this I started thinking that I might see and perceive this world differently than other people. I was very good in talking to animals and trees, the sky, the seas, nature itself and even things that do not exist in a rational Believe System. When it came to talking to people I was the opposite. I couldn´t even understand what they are thinking and talking about. I would be outside in nature or inside my room creating my own little world and phantasies in peace or I would argue with others and tell all the people to leave me alone. I am glad that I have grown a bit and become more social but actually I am still the same. My whole life as an artist has been created upon this.

I am trying to ask questions about this society comparing it to ancient societies. I never find any answers but what I find is that the ideas our world system is based on are not treating the natural system of this planet and its creatures very kindly.

I am attracted to the ideas of the old egyptians and greek philosophers, some thoughts of the romantic writers of the 18th century, some old shamans and myths… I find some soulmates in the Arts, in Philosophy and Poetry, in Music, but asked why I am doing art and how I would describe it, never I find a definition about what exactly it is. I just feel the urgent need to do so. Maybe I am searching intuitively to live a life outside of any Believe System and I am learning more.

Systems have always failed and people have always found solutions in order to step forward and create something else. No truth remains true forever. History is being told differently in different times and different countries. If some old thinkers we like to quote would live nowadays I believe they would think about other things, create something according to this period of time and reality, based on the experiences they made in this society and state of mind. Nevertheless, their thoughts are still alive, feeding and nurturing our thoughts and even some people´s daily lives.

AMBIGUITY PUSHES OBJECTIVITY

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, VISION

Now that I am calling out to you,  I find out it might need some explanation why I do believe some of us need an A P O, which is defined on wikipedia as: Outerparliamental Opposition and on this page forming many other synonyms.

This is a rather long post. Thank you for taking some time.

I am trying to first observe some of my personal positive energies as well as some weaknesses to then broaden it to human society or the world which we share as individual creatures.

Let´s start with three powers:

I am open-minded. I am very creative. I try to become a better person and learn all my life.

…My Path is wide open. I can change it all the time.

There are three things that make me outrageous and not being a good version of myself: The first thing is ignorance, the second is unfair behaviour or treatment, the third one is misunderstanding or dis-understanding.

…My Path becomes restricted. (Obstacles are being created by outer actions causing inner reactions causing other outer reactions and so on)

Three weaknesses: I am hypersensitive. I tend to be either overwhelmed or scared very easily. I tend to let emotions control reason.

(I find out that once you master hypersensitivity it is also a great talent)

…I tend to stand in my own Path.

By knowing the positive forces and weaknesses, I can work on balancing them, change and overcome these obstacles.

The reason I do not want to call the A P O by a defined name is:

I think we are judging and defining way too much.

The reason I am calling out to other creators: I cannot get rid of having a bad conscience about the behavior of mankind and myself being part of this. In my opinion our running system does provide many restrictions for those of us being truly committed to honesty and humanity. I am trying to find out what you as the Other think, believe and feel like in order to find out why it seems to be a problem for some of the most powerful minds and spirits to form or become a part of a collective in these times.  And as an artist I feel responsibility to discuss about ways to step over lonesome struggles, stop competition and find real friendship as we all battle with similar problems. We are here to play with them.

Let´s use some questions:

  1. Do you feel comfortable and wealthy?
  2. Do you feel your creativity level and mental health is flowing and thriving?
  3. What to you are restrictive and destructive energies or concerns?
  4. What to you are positive and good energies or concerns?
  5. Are you conscious and what do you think about the fact that marketconform forces, statistics and rating options permanently and continously enter Culture (thereby I mean Schools, Universities, even the Fields of Art and Philosophy, the Internet, Physical and Spiritual Healthcare followed by many more systems we had once invented in order to serve humanity) and Nature (thereby I mean universe, our planet but also our human immanent nature) ?  Globally, no matter in which country or society we live, this is our time and our state of being.
  6. Maybe we can compare ourselves to some other relatives named turtles. They use this big Ocean System in order to travel and live in it. When they are scared they tend to hide in their armors. What makes them differ from us: 1.they have not ever competed each other or other creatures they share their system with 2. they have never abused their Ocean. 3. they had and have more time to live and learn  4. they are peaceful universal beings.
  7. If we could stop hiding behind our ego-built armor and perceive that we do not need one as we come on this earth naturally naked and without weapons, blessed with reason and intuition, do you think, it would make us understand each other more truly, thus create more trust and maybe we could start coming out of our bubble-shells and start to spread love instead of war?
  8. If we share our individual weaknesses and fears right now could it serve all of us better than permanently telling and showing what we are best at, competing with or judging;  not only political systems and each other but also ourselves?
  9. The A P O is yearning to become a net in the net differing from other linking systems. It is not here for showing each other our nicest side and getting applause or numerous connections, likes or even dis-likes, aiming to reach the whole world. It is an experiment and invitation trying to reach those who find the questions posted familiar and worth working on and those who have already started to do so. How can we create a net that does not catch us but holds us together and feeds us with energy?
  10. The A P O is here to find out what we are confronted with and what we all and individually are up to respond to these confrontations. Could we learn again to listen to each other more carefully, get a deeper understanding  what connects us, teach each other in different versions, broaden our knowledge and senses and act concerning not only our individual needs but a hollistic cultural exchange and change?
  11. The A P O will not force you to spend your precious time or create more work for you. Rather it is trying to gather honest opinions and projects related to our time and nature. It is here to question why Artists spend more time on their vita than on making their art, why Philosophers or Scientists often spend more time on teaching  (which is the Best things to do when you love doing  it) or having any other side-job just to afford their basic needs. Why is Bob Dylan given a Price for Literature? I guess not even Bob Dylan knows. But knowing his texts, not judging but trusting him as a true human Being and committed Artist, I feel he must be posing similar questions to himself right now. Is art obsolete, has philosophy become obsolete, is Literature obsolete or are we all simply just lacking TIME?
