In Ger­ma­ny, whe­re I live, I have been working in the media for over twen­ty years. I never got in touch with Sha­ma­nism, until my heart was bro­ken so bad­ly, I almost gave mys­elf up. When I first met my com­pa­n­ions from the other world, I was sca­red and ques­tio­ned my sani­ty. Howe­ver, as I see­med to have no choice other than to embark on this jour­ney, I deci­ded to do it who­lehe­ar­ted­ly. And the more I gave in to this new field of expe­ri­ence, the more it beca­me a source of strength to me. Today sha­ma­nism has beco­me an important part of my ever­y­day life, and I enjoy sharing tho­se won­ders.

All wri­tings, pain­tings and music on the­se pages are expres­si­ons of pure joy without artis­tic ambi­ti­on. The ide­as and fee­lings find the expres­si­on that is ade­qua­te for them, if I let them. The fol­lo­wing song about the four ele­ments also reflects this spi­rit.

State­ment: Does it real­ly need a state­ment here, I ask mys­elf? Is this ‚sha­ma­nic‘? Is it ‚spi­ri­tu­al‘? Is the world out the­re despe­r­a­te­ly wai­ting for my com­ment on it? Surely not! But this urge to com­ment is part of me. And whoever found his or her way to this page, might want to take a clo­ser look at the aut­hor. When my spi­ri­tu­al com­pa­n­ions insisted I crea­te inde­pendent­ly and auto­no­mous­ly, I am sure they meant it in gene­ral, inclu­ding socie­ty.

Like so many others on their spi­ri­tu­al path, I ado­re quan­tum phy­sics. Not that I actual­ly under­stand any of it, but I sim­ply love their efforts of pro­ving that we are all one. The insight is beau­ti­ful, and actual­ly pro­ving it, is even more beau­ti­ful. And phy­si­cists enga­ged in such beau­ti­ful mat­ter can­not crea­te any other mischief. That alo­ne is beau­ti­ful. But is it real­ly essen­ti­al, to sci­en­ti­fi­cal­ly pro­ve that we are all one? Isn’t it much more important to find out about the con­se­quen­ces — for socie­ty and for each and every one of us? „We can­not sol­ve our pro­blems with the same thin­king we used when we crea­ted them” (Albert Ein­stein). My fixa­ti­on on the clas­si­cal sci­en­ces with their fixa­ti­on on pro­ving ever­y­thing sci­en­ti­fi­cal­ly in order to legi­ti­ma­te some­thing that is so obvious, makes me thought­ful. It might still be a sign of the old thin­king in me.

Inter­net, Part I: We do have fan­tastic tools today. It is up to us how we use them. I can throw my lap­top at you and suc­cess­ful­ly smash your head. Or I can use that lap­top to spread inspi­ring, new ide­as. The world wide web gives us a noti­on of how influ­en­ti­al we can be, every sin­gle one of us, and what crea­ti­ve power we pos­sess. Howe­ver, we tend to use this power like kids in the sand­box. Refle­xi­vely, we sign peti­ti­ons or join shit-storms, thus allo­wing others to mani­pu­la­te us and use us for their objec­tives, which might turn out to be less ‚objec­tive‘ than it seems. Befo­re we are even awa­re of our crea­ti­ve power, we are eager to give it away. Isn’t it about time to grow up, to quit the anony­mous mas­ses and stop soot­hing our con­sci­ence signing peti­ti­ons. Time to real­ly assu­me respon­si­bi­li­ty, pri­ma­ri­ly for our­sel­ves. And in doing so, sin­ce we are all one, we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly assu­me respon­si­bi­li­ty for the world around us.

Inter­net, Part II: „Whe­re is the Face­book-But­ton?” Right, it’s mis­sing. It was any­thing but an easy deci­si­on for me to reject what is con­s­i­de­red an abso­lu­te ‚must‘ among PR-peop­le: Joi­ning a soci­al net­work. Why then, do I reject? For two obvious rea­sons and a less obvious one: First: I don’t want my data to end up in anyone’s secret ser­vice archi­ves. Second: I don’t know if I have enough time to com­mit mys­elf to such an endea­vor. But most of all: I don’t feel com­for­ta­ble with a socie­ty whe­re com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is redu­ced to asses­sing each other by thumb. I like, the­re­fo­re I am! I am lik­ed, the­re­fo­re I am good! And what if noo­ne likes me? Do I still exist? I sim­ply refu­se to assess my fel­low humans all the time. I still prac­tice not con­stant­ly asses­sing mys­elf. I’d much rather mar­vel at all the non­sen­se I do. To mar­vel is to open up. To assess ist to clo­se up. Assess­ment is the oppo­si­te of ama­ze­ment. The stan­ce of socie­ty today seems to be assess­ment. My stan­ce is ama­ze­ment. The­re­fo­re the ‚mis­sing link‘ to any soci­al net­work.

Now it’s out. Wait, there’s one more thing: The famous quo­te from Mahat­ma Gan­dhi: „You must be the chan­ge you want to see in the world.” There’s not­hing more to add.
