lighter

as i threw out chunks of my past, the world became lighter. this is what i will do this advent- throw out those things that have accumulated over the past years and have lost their meaning. all those trinkets, knick-knacks, dust-gatherers, scraps of paper, boxes of so valuable and so useless stuff. it is time […]

If you cannot divorce yourself from hypocritical self‐deceit, you will never be successful as a magician, much less a Satanist. (Anton LaVey, The Satanic Bible, p.47) i sometimes think – if you do not divorce yourself from self-deceit and hypocrisy, you will not make even a successful nobody, leave alone becoming your own self. seeing […]

just

because god is so holy and omnipotent, nothing can stand in his way. it is no use to try to achieve something on one’s own, to climb up to god’s dwelling: the higher one will go, the higher they will see the throne of god, out of reach, ever inaccessible. the higher the climb, the […]

proof

the existence of penguins in the arctic is certainly a proof of the fact that the earth and all things and beings on it must have been created by someone. because any sane species of bird or animal would not have chosen to live on ice, given the possibilities the earth offers. Posted by Wordmobi

too (much)

we blame people too much. the parents’ faults are blamed on children, the faults of children- on their parents. and one’s own faults on those closest as only they will stay with us, no matter what. wouldn’t it be nice, to look at the world with the eyes of god, full of compassion and promise […]

notepad plus plus

the chameleon among text editors, the worthiest of the worthy, notepad++, is a source of constant surprise, wonder and excitement. it does things one only desires, it highlights the scratchy spots, it colour-codes code for dummies to see, it is beautiful. this is an ode to the creators of notepad++, a bow of gratitude, an […]

birds and snow

they have come. all of them, the tits and sparrows and the greenfinches. they look into my room and tell me one story – it will be cold soon. it will snow. here. soon. they invade my privacy, enter my room, knock on my window, startle me out of sleep – their message urgent and […]

then

the leaves fall from trees with a faint noise. the change of season is imminent. the crisp sun-pierced air transcends this world. when the seasons change and the sun illuminates the frost-bitten world, it is time to think of this god-entity has created it all, put all things in order, promised to renew life again […]
