If truth is of female nature, how can you trust it?

Dootzkie Sunday, November 13, 2011
I will skip the intro on why and how female nature, female aspect is passive and transformative - as opposed to male which is active yet more rigid in nature. If you can agree with it, great!

I have started writing and I give you the translation (and the original) of a thing I wrote today.

The truth sets you free?
It can, but it is not it's main, true nature. If you believe in the (possibility of) truth, undestand that it is a she, a female. Static and transformative.
I have found many truths about a moment that streached for a long time in my past. Some of them set me free, some of them bound me in chains.
But all of them transformed me and my view, outlook on the moments passed and moments to come.

If the truth is a female, how can we trust it?


Original verzija - onako kako mi je doshlo u glavu:

Istina oslobadja?
Ume, ali joj to nije glavna priroda.
Ako verujesh u istinu, shvati da je ona zensko. Statichna i transformishuca.
Saznao sam pregrsht istina o jednom dugom moment. Neke su me oslobodile, neke su me bacile u lance. No sve su me transformisale, kako mene tako i pogled na momenat proshli i buduci.

Ako je istina zensko, mozemo li joj verovati?

We've got all the life in the world...

Dootzkie Tuesday, August 2, 2011
That doesn't sound right, does it? But saying time isn't true either.

Fact is, the language we know and use is the best means of communication that humanity has invented so far and yet it is far from perfect. Mainly because some things you cannot explain and because some things are connected to the words that they don't belong with.

One of this linguistic traps is the life-time connection. When you are born, your biggest achievements are measured in time [while some may remember when you started walking or talking or when you made that great picture of daddy on mommy, most will remember almost only your age]. Once you are a bit older, your progress is measured with the time frames of your education system which is based on time and not on your actual progress or academic ability. Once you are out of the education machine, its nine to five, five days a week. Time as measure more dominant then any other.

It's a good thing you got some time for your self in between, but what you learned in the machine haunts you there. Two things, mainly.
-Time is connected to existence and while we exist there is time as well. Conclusion is that time is infinite.
-Time we have is just plain that: time. And time it self is infinite.

"What are you up to?"
"Nothing much... Just watching time go by... You?"
"I should do some stuff, but I've got enough time."
"Yea, while we are young we got all the time in the world."
"Sure thing. Why not waste some [time] and chill."

Doesn't sound so bad.
If you never heard any dialog similar to this one raise your hand. Let's see... Ha... There is always one...

Anyway, to get back at track. What we have is life and not time. The main difference is the [in]finity. If you ask me, quite a bit difference. And yet with the way we talk and the way we think, we seems to refuse to think in terms of life. Rather, we use time mercilessly for it can never run out. Sadly we can.
I won't go into the idea of some psychologists that its the fear of death compelling us to talk and think in this manner.
I think its the linguistic self indoctrination that numbs our sense. And what do I advise for you to do.

Simply... Correct this little error and replace time with life in speech and thought where ever you seem fitting.

"What are you up to?"
"Nothing much... Just watching life go by... You?"
"I should do some stuff, but I've got enough life."
"Yea, while we are young we got all the life in the world."
"Sure thing. Why not waste some [life] and chill."

Doesn't sound so harmless, does it. This method has been already used on the teens somewhere in the world and the reduction in apathy was notable. Try it!

~Addendum: I am not saying one should never chill out, that is a part of life. When you say that you will say that you are relaxing. Yet, wasting time just for the sake of wasting life is another thing. And you will see the difference once you start using this little correction.
If you have issues with implementing this into your mind, no rush. It's one of the fundamentally hard wired patters in your mind. In this case, try with something easier and that is to look at the Moon and understand and feel that it's not moonlight you see but reflected sunlight. The idea of moonlight is also one of the hard wired patterns in your mind, but one that can be broken with greater ease. I wrote about this a few posts before.

Enjoy your life!
Take care

Program me!

Dootzkie Saturday, July 30, 2011
As one of my passions, psychology, enticed me to follow it down the rabit whole, at the other side of the earth, I fell in the the land of neuro linguistic programming and found my self very welcomed there. I also "stayed" there for quite a while, not leaving it where ever I went in this world, always testing and extrapolating algorythms of behaviour and the inner workings of mine and the mind of others.

Partially, this is why I abandoned this fine blog I have here. What snapped me back into "reality" is that soon I'll be going to the seaside and that even sooner I should start hitting the books for the univeristy. But all that, at least on here can wait for from this post onwards I will share some great things I have found and some even greater things I have managed to merge with my old storage of information and this new input.

As for now I will only provide you with a small pointer which is - If you want to get your self into this [and I know you will after some posts of mine], start with reading Richard Bandlers "Using your brain for a change". It's just enought to be basic and stimulating. As we continue going down this rabbit hole I will provide more references to texts or experts. I expect you to do the same via comments.

Be well!

Piece of paper.

Dootzkie Thursday, July 7, 2011
In my last post I mentioned that I was in Budapest for a debating competition. And that the competition was held at CEU. I must say that this is the first time I have been to a - as people call it - graduation university. An university that you join only for one last year or for masters. Oh and for PhD. Apart from the last reason I kinda do find it silly that you would firstly, get the paper of that institution that you finished it when you spend most of your time somewhere else and got used to that way of doing things and secondly, that now there are many "universities" that are only there to provide the finishing year or masters.

Because, think about it, you did something for three to four years at your first university and you will bring most of the habits into your future with you. Once you switch to the graduation/master university it's seems more like a checkup on the topic can your methods you learned and that are now a part of you produce results in some other system which is in power in places that you might want to get a job later. They are not proper educational institutions. They are just providers of a piece of paper that tells others you are just another product of a random educational system that can hit into a mold that is expected to produce needed results.

And I say, to hell with it! Gamble a little and have people from many places doing the same thing. Two plus two will equal four everywhere, but the way you get the result may not. Someone will see two of the same number and will multiply, someone will see two of the same numbers multiplied and will square one number. Some will see two and two sheep and some will see two and two rockets. The results will be the same but changing, or more so, enriching the views might sprout new solutions!

With this little rant over I'd like to say that in the future I will have to use you all as lab rats, if you wish to respond via comments, that is. I started learning about submodalities and NLP so while I will be testing it with the people I know IRL, a more global response would be nice.

Cheers

Thoughts on Budapest

Dootzkie Tuesday, July 5, 2011
I have just returned from the debating tournament held at Central European University in Budapest and I'd like to share some impressions with my dear readers.

~The city feel.
I like the vibe of the city very much so. I thought it has more people living in it then my beloved Belgrade, but they are of the same size. While Budapest has been affected by the socialistic architecture, it's a lot less noticeable then in Belgrade and with so much great both new and old buildings I felt like Belgrade and Paris clashed and gave birth to Budapest. I have added it to the list of cities I need to know as back of my own palm, so I do plan to go there again... And again.

~The motivation.
For sure won't be the Hungarian girls. After three days and a visit to 400, Szimpla Kert, Corvinus and a few places at Franz List square [I think I only spelled 400 correctly] I have concluded that "you're face isn't so asymmetrical" is the pinnacle a compliment you can give to a Hungarian chick.
Food could be one of the motivators to return there. I had a religious experience with a sour cherry strudel cover in chili chocolate.
A sure motivator will be the spa centers! Ten euros for a whole day access to a place with great warm pools, saunas, cold barrels, Turkish baths might seem cheap, but you will have to leave after a few hours anyway cause the water saps your energy so fast. I have heard that when the weather is better one of the spa centers makes a party at nighttime with rather good cocktails.

~The political issues.
Since I was in Budapest during the Jobbik rally I would like to say a few things on the political climate there. When the Jobbik came to the public view as the VERY radical nationalistic and racist group the other right wing parties such as Fidesz seems mild and a good choice. Now they are in power and Moscow square and any other signs of social remnants are being removed and are replaced with proper Hungarian names. In a few days, Hungary will step down from the position of "leading" the EU in favor of Poland and people that live there tell me that then they do expect an outburst of nationalism.

For those that weren't there, I recommend you go there and enjoy this great city with your own senses.

As a note, GO Djokovic GO!

Cheers
Be well

I lied... Here is a quote

Dootzkie Wednesday, June 29, 2011
Here is a quote from a manga. I firmly believe that you can learn over any medium, be it manga, movie, book, song. Hope you feel the same.

All creatures want to believe in something bigger than themselves. They cannot live without blind obedience. And to scape the pressure of that trust, those in whom faith is placed in turn look for someone higher than themselves. And then those people in turn look for someone even stronger. That is how all Kings are born. That is how all Gods are born.

On top of that, notice the "It's like we are all trapped by it" line in the clip. This is what Gods are for me. ;)

The return of the prodigal son

Dootzkie

At least I am not half barefoot.

There has been a lot of events in the last two weeks of my life. Some joyful, some gloomy, some that happened to others, some that happened to me.

But after all that I have returned. And I won't stay all too long here for I plan to move this fine establishment to a new and much better organized site with it's own .com URL.
Best news so far where that all the time I neglected this site and it's readers payed of. I passed two exams I wanted so I can pause from the university work for a while. The bad news is that I will have a lot of free time in July and some in August. Well, actually, the bad news is the reason, and the free time is just an effect that can still change.

For the blog, nonsense songs will return, so will the texts and the music. Pictures will be removed, as a theme, but will as such follow some posts. The same will be done with quotes. And since today was a day for quotes, it means I don't have to write anything.

Also, a final note. From 1st of July till the 3rd or 4th I will be in the capitol city of Hungary on a debating competition at CEU or how's it called. So... As you might have figured, I won't be around during that time as well.

As for the upcoming topics they will be about education system. For this I blame the fact that I had to study like crazy to pass constitutional law, that I have started reading an interesting book that delves deep into the human mind and that I have been watching [again] a lot of Sir Ken Robinsons talks.

Hope you dear lemon drops are still around and reading ;)

Be well
