What are we searching for?
Do we want what we search or do we just want the seach?

stars

I ran through the forest, felt the soft and cold touch of the winter night.
In my mind the old symbols whispered through me, and came out as figures in the dark.
An animal cried out so softly from a hill, the spirits of the forest whispered in my mind.
I left the path and got lost behind the trees. Without a road, I was walking, between the smell of wet leaves. In the shimmering dew from an old oak tree I sat down.
I could feel the old symbols coming to me, touching who I was, deeply. I could see her white feet, glimmering in the dark night, like moonlight. She bore red berries in her hair, and leaves she carried as a bouquet, as if it was her wedding day. I could feel his presence behind a rock, he was standing there, watching me, silently. This is the night when you can return. This is the night you can remember. Don't forget. This is the night you can live the life of your fantasies. They made love in the wet grass. A unity of the powers from within. The meltdown of the opposites, creating a balance. The world is what you see. In your eyes you create your own life. Which life do you choose it to be?

Run out in the night
~ Aasa

I got this from somebody today:
I could ask thousands of questions, but I will start with 1!
In your opinion: Does humanity need a god/ess?
and it inspired me to make this post.


These are just a few of my thoughts about this. Take it or leave it as you want, it is just an opinion among 10000. I think, that many people need religion as a subject of comfort or worship. To me, this is a false need, created out of dependency. We all have some dependant behaviour in one way or an other, it is normal human behavior. If we understand that we can stand alone and have the strength to do so, these needs disappear. But this is a long journey. Also, our times seem to idealize "the couple" and finding "true love", it has become an ideal for our lives. I think this is a very damaging way of thinking. It undermines our own strenghts and abilities to grow on our own. No, I don't think humanity needs a god/ess, but on the other hand, we do need what a god/ess symbolizes. But this we can get through other channels We need symbolism, dreams and fantasy. We need physical expression of passages in life, we need rites and celebrations and manifestations of our journeys as humans. We need symbolism because it is the language of our deeper beings. Because our subconscious minds speaks in these ways to us. I think the mind speaks in symbols and riddles, in the language of the dreams. Words are a way to communicate, but something is lost in them. This we can find in the language which dreams are made of. We need rites and expressions of our mythical minds. We also need these things to not let our souls wither. These things give us life, it wakens us up, it makes us remember to live and burst out of the dangerous death called "habit" This is something that has been quite forgotten in our time. The thing is, we get our stories, symbols, and fantasy now. We get them every day, and as much as we want them. The problem is, we are getting them passively, through TV. This is the new channel to our minds. In our times we do not have to participate in the creation of something that has nurtured the minds of humans for thousands of years We just receive it. There is no creativity made on our own behalf in such a proses. We are just watchers, not creators.
Passion:
In Norwegian; lidenskap
Originating from the word ; lide - to suffer


I fall in passion instantly.
It rarely happens, but when it happens its hard and strong and it grips me with its hands tightly. The vivid vision of your skin floats in my mind. I cannot sleep tonight. I cannot sleep.. What is it that drives my passion? This senseless need for your touch?

In love......

.....okay, I only have five min online, but I just wanted to tell about this.
I have found a new love and I am lost in admiration. "He" is a pinholecamera.
Its like a merge of fine arts and photography.
It is strange cause I have never felt totally satisfied doing the fine arts and neither phototgraphy, but in the meeting between them both I think I am going to find a home.
What a discovery, and I feel stupid not finding something that has been right under my nose all this time, before now.
I saw some works by a teacher I have in my scool and it really hit me. It was so passinate, sensual, emotinal, beautiful, really striking, and it really inspired me to dig more into this field.
The only annoying thing is that I am totally new to this. I have no experience what so ever in it. It excites and annoys at the same time. I want to leap into it with my entire self, but I dont know where to grab a hold. So I guess I will just have to try and be patient (something that has never been a great strength of mine).
I want to do it all NOW! I was even dreaming about it this night, ha ha.
I really hope this is not just an other infatuation of mine that will pass quickly. Maybe this is a track I can follow for many years to come.

Miss you all
Hugs
Aasa
Tomorrow I am off to see a musical, I am so happy, it is one of my faves, they even celebrate my zodiac sign, muhahah!
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

Oh, but what was I just told? It might be translated into Norwegain
The horror! The horror!

Thru The Darkness Of Future Past The Magician Longs To See
One Chants Out Between Two Worlds:
Fire, Walk With Me

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

...brrrrrrrrrrrrr.......

I am back in the ye´old homecountry.
Nice to see some snow again and to really freeze. (It´s not a real winter before the cold makes your face hurt.) I already miss Barcelona and my friends there though. Surprisingly, that's a new feeling for me, to feel a touch of belonging for a place, hmmmm, strange.
But it´s good to be back in Norway. It is like returning to the womb after being born....safe, soft, warm (at least emotionally, if not physically) and comforting.

Wish you all a merry Xmas and thank you for your sweet comments.

Hello
This is the Zebra, Zee-brah-duur speaking to you, normally known as Plonk (only to friends)
I will steal a post in Aasa's blog for important information, that most likely will shock you, but more importantly will save thousands of lives.
Here in Norway, where I am also lodging at this very moment (I must be out of my wits, cause I track along with this Norwegian blond girl) there is a quite striking phenomenon happening at this very moment - a crystallisation of an uncertain white mass, covering all the trees and even the mailboxes. Through thorough observation and scientific notes I have drawn the conclusion that it is an abnormal sort of fungi. This fungi seem to behave in patterns not familiar to the living creatures of earth. I am therefore convinced it is an alien life-form.
It seems to grow with an enormous speed, sucking the life out of its prey. Trees, bushes, everything seems to die under its white deadly cover. I can only assume that we are next. (With "we", I of course mean the zebras) It is certainly a frightful situation.
This morning this white mass had started to attack the window in the room where I sleep. It is obviously not brainless or slow as one might think at first. It clearly has an IQ above average and extremely high combat skills. Why it is persecuting me, is beyond my understanding so far, I do not think I can have insulted it in any way. But now, who knows where I will be forced to hide in the end?

I will get back to you when I know more, if it is not too late.
Meanwhile, I will cover my room in purple, pink, blue and red fake paper flowers and pretend I am running around in the grassy fields at home

Best wishes to all of you, may we conqueror the white and slow death from outer space

Daydreaming



I would live in a big castle on a cliff up in the mountains
it would be a medieval castle and I would have lots off dresses from that time
I would also have some armor and knight equipment
and I would have a horse or two
and an owl that lived in the mountains but visited me every day
and I would have a knight by my side
and my knight would woo me and kiss my hand
and then we would fence each other a little with longswards
and both would win about half of the time
and we would both be very bad loosers and tickle each other
just for the hell of it

but I would not just live in the the castle
now and then I would live in a treehouse in the forrest
and it would be a brook just next to my treehouse
and I would only live from food that grew in the forest
and every morning I would collect herbs in a little basket
and while doing that I would talk to the animals
and my man would live nearby
and he would be "dressed" as a faun
and visit me in the middle of the night climbing up my tree
and do a romantic fireshow for me
and I would give him hourlong massages in a meadow
and we would lie there all day until the stars came out
and fall asleep in eachothers arms

and we would both love to dress up in weird costumes and play roles
we could be Bonnie and Clyde
Or hippies at Woodstock
Or warlock and witch
and he would not be afraid to go out in the streets with me wearing it
so we could make fools of ourselves
just for the laugh of it

and in the forrest I would have a school for everybody who wanted to come
kids and adults
and it would be a place where everybody teached everybody something they knew well
(cause everybody has a gift of something)
and we would take turns to show eacother these things

and up in the castle I would have a huge fruitgarden
full of strange exciting things
were a lot of kids came every day and played and had fun
and often I would join them
being a kid myself

and I would have magical powers
to make people feel good
and this would make them do good deeds to eachother
and I might just make the world a little better in a small scale
but still I would be a person who made it better, not worse

imagine, you can be 3 kinda of people
the one who makes the world better
the one who doesn't make a difference
and the one who makes it worse

I prefer to try my best and be the first kind

and I would not be happy all the time
cause I woudl have bad times and sad times too
but this would be the reason why
I would be happy as fuck

Respect

Spain is hard for us emotional people
I sit and wait for appointments, like to get a telephone installed - and nobody arrives, I wait for the 5th time, nobody comes. You have to get used to not take people seriously, which is hard. Its a lack of respect that I cant quite deal with.
I arrange for people to come and see my flat and 50% of them show up.
Maybe A very few of the rest send you a message saying they are sorry they didn't come, but the rest you never hear from, they just don't give a damn about it.
As I said, its a lack of respect. I guess it is like this all over the world, I have just been in more situations here where it happened.
People take the easy way out, they cheat on their taxes, they lie to loved ones, they don't get up for the old lady on the bus, they don't come on time or they don't come at all, in general, what they want and need is what matters and not other people.
And I really take it hard, I get pissed of and walk around in the streets cursing to myself so people think I am a loony
Well, well, what can I do? If I am more than 4 min late to something I send them a message and apologize and tell them I will soon be there.
I guess my way is a remains of thinking that used to be common in the 1800 century, ha ha!

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

Flatmates

Update 03.11:
She changed her mind - she found something else she could get right away, and she preferred that to wait until the 15.11 for mine and loose money on hotels. I can understand that, though it was kinda hgzjsmchgumhbshmbshfbn!
Whoa! Stress in my head.
So I gave it to him. I think it will be fun, I like living with guys
And he has an aquarium, haha, I think that is kinda cool, cause then I dont have to feel guilty for the fishes sake, and I can have pretty fish in my flat.
:)

Update
02.11:

Who to pick?
The sweet Brazilian / American psychologist girl
or the funny Spanish drawing student?
Aasa bad at choosing
UGH!

Just some ponderings of today........

The world is a confusing place. You think you know you yourself, but as Socrates so brilliantly put it "One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing"
The world seems to be like Peer Gynts famous onion. If you peel of a layer, there is just an other one under it. Lets hope we are not like him, being left with only the empty core when all the layers have been peeled away.
The mind is truly a tricky thing. The consciousness is even a larger enigma, at least you own, to yourself, if you ever try to go down in it.
How can I expect to truly know somebody if I don't even know myself down to the core? Is it ever possible to know yourself totally. I guess not, humans
are like the rest of the existence. A constant flow of changing energy.
Nothing disappears, it just transcends into something else. I guess the idea of something fixed is a simplification of our minds in an effort to try and see the world in an easier way. But I can understand the motifs behind such a wish. Sometimes things just look waaaay to big for a little person to handle. In those moment a world of just black and white is not that bad, ha ha. I guess if you truly stick to those beliefs, that's when you are in trouble.
When i sit down and think about these things I am only left with one answer - and that is that the only thing I really know, is that I know nothing. Its really true, Socrates was a smartass, ha ha!
Everything floats and fades and changes pattern. How could I ever grasp it? But still I try, again, and again and again!
My mind craves an answer.
My soul will never stop the search around the questions without answers.

In order to be brave you must first start by being afraid
for true courage lies in the overcoming of fear
not in its absence

The Story of the Fisher King


It began when the king was a boy. He had, as a test of courage, to spend a night alone in the forest in order to become king. While he spends the night alone there he is struck by a holy vision. Out of his campfire the holy grail appeared, the symbol of the grace of God.

And a voice said to the boy: "You will be the keeper of the grail, and it heals the hearts of mankind."

But the boy was blinded by bigger visions of a life full of power and glory and splendor. In a state of complete ecstacy for one moment he feels not like a boy but invincible, like a god. He reached out with his hands into the fire to seize the grail, but it disappeared and left him behind with his hands in the fire, and he sustained serious burnings.

And while the boy grew older his wound grew deeper. Until one day life lost its sense for him. He could not have faith in anybody, not even in himself. He could neither love nor feel love. After he got that clear in his mind he became ill. He began to die.

One day a fool entered the castle and found the king alone. And with his simple mind the fool did not recognize the king. He just saw a man who was alone and took pains.

And he asked the king: "What's wrong with you, friend?"

And the king answered: "I'm thirsty. I need some water to moisten my throat."

So the fool grasped a mug that stood next to the bed, filled it with water and passed it to the king. As the king began to drink he realized that his wound was healed. He looked in his hands; and there was the holy grail he aimed for all his lifetime.

In astonishment he asked the fool: "How could you find what my Noblest and Bravest failed to find?"

And the fool replied: "I don't know! I just knew that you were thirsty."

New Address

Okay people
From the 15 of November, this is where you will find me, in my new gorgeous flat:

¨¨°º©©º°°º©©º°¨¨¨¨°º©©º°°º©©º°¨¨¨¨°º©©º°°º©©º°¨¨¨¨°º©©º°°º©©º°¨¨

Carabassa actually means "pumpkin" in Catalan. I am going to live in "pumpkin-street", isnt that sweet? And you can never guess one of the cross-roads to my little pumkinstreet.

Dream Within A Dream
by Edgar Allan Poe.

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep - while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

I have found a place to live!

Update:
SHE HAS A CAT! And I am allergic to cats! OHMYHOWBADLUCKCANYOUHAVE!!!
I went there today to pick up the keys and such, and suddenly this cat jumps out. And I go "What the......" Her: "Oooh, I didn't tell you, I have a cat. Actually I have two. Is that a problem? I just forgot to tell you when you came last time and they weren't there then. Oh, I am sorry."

So, just to be sure I really rubbed the cat all over myself, ha ha, to see if I ma still as allergic as I thought, and when I came home my entire neck was red.
DAMN! I so much wanted to live there. What should I doooooooooooooooo?????????

Original post:

Yay! Will post some pictures soon
It is a shared flat with an English girl and a Swedish guy. Both are very sweet.
My room is around 20 m2. The apartment is a little shabby but cute. And I like the style.
Its right in the most gorgeous part of the Gothic area, but also 1 min from the metro i use to school. I walked around and in the street just behind there is 3 bars that are small and
"shabby-weird-cute-artsy", which I love. In the same street there is a place where they teach a lot of stuff, like yoga, flamenco and such things. I will surely take some kinda class there. And next to that there is a tiny art gallery. Its 2 min from the harbour and the beach and 5 min from the most lovely and huge park in Barcelona. The area is also filled with people with funnylooking, weird hairstyles and most likely "alternative" opinions of the world. (I hope its not a "uniform" thing though)
Seems like this neighbourhood is made for me, ha, ha!

Today.......

1 I found a pear in my purse that I had forgotten
2 The light went out in my room
3 I found a place to live in the Gothic area, with a really sweet English girl and a funny Swedish guy
4 A woman smiled and gave me a hug when I gave her a donation to a childrens hospital
5 A man spoke totally weird Spanish at me and whistled when I left
6 I went to an art exhibition with the worst junky art i have seen in ages
7 I snuggled with pinkie the panther
8 I walked around the Gothic area for a long time and fell in love with it, again
9 I was supposed to be in Paris

My Test

Today I am going to be totally selfish and just promote a test I have written myself.
Link to my test
I have made some changes, so now it should be more difficult to score high
Don't take it very seriously, its for fun...
But I have seen that I tend to enjoy talking with people who score in the best category on this test very much.
But not many have so far
This is the highest score ever on my test:
Oh Wow! Dream-man/!
So...are you the man of my dreams? Looks like you scored 99 Attractive, 96 Fun / Friend and 97 Soulmate / Lover
Can you beat that?
Hope you`ll enjoy it!
