I used to publish a sort of description of me here.

I always thought my CV doesnt say much about me, about who I am, so I wrote something about me I considered important at that time. 
I wrote that description years ago. Since the old description wasn
t representative anymore, I thought it was necessary to write a new description, more suited for who I am now. I tried. I started a few times, but nothing seemed to feel relevant.
I don
t think I can write a new description of me. I think I know why.

I changed a lot since I started to understand and respect that I DONT KNOW. We live by a set of rules people invented because of their need to feel secure. Knowing gives us this comfortable feeling of security. People needed to know what is Right and what is Wrong, so they invented the law and the moral rules. We started to believe in them, as if they were truths. But they arent truths. When we start to believe in our mind projected stuff, we lose contact with Reality. We create The World of How Things Should Be, in our mind, and then ask Reality to fit into it. We plan, we define, and were not open to see what really is.

We create so many rules, categories, definitions, to put everything into a place we can control, and ultimately, to determine what is Right and what is Wrong. Right and Wrong exist, but they dont fit into the rules we invented.
Right and Wrong are relative to each individual and for each situation.

What I can say about me is that I followed my heart and chose to live the way I felt was right. I shook off all the stupid rules I had in my mind, and I became open to what Real Life offered me, instead of trying to make my life fit into the Life Image I projected from all those rules.

I am an individual, my freedom and rights are protected even by the law. People who dont respect individual freedom will show me their moral rules to prove Im wrong. You shouldnt live like that, its wrong, you have to live
like this.

Its difficult to keep our freedom, teh freedom we were born with.  We are taught to live the way people decided its safer for them. People also manipulate with the rules they invented. Some are honest, believing in a doctrine. Some use the rules for their own benefit. Either way, they disrespect peoples liberties, they disrespect Freedom. Im not talking about The Law, we all have to respect the law or suffer the legal consequences. Im talking about the moral rules and the expectations the moral rules generate.

The truth is nobody knows anything. This is Reality. But it takes a huge amount of courage to live in a place governed by relativity. You dont own anything here, nothing lasts forever and nothing is always true or right.
People don
t want to live in this place, they want to feel secure.

I dont know if Im there yet, but Im close. Maybe thats why I cant write my description anymore




I dont know where I am going.
Without control of any sort,
I feel fine like this, not knowing,
without illusions for support.


I used to run away from me
I was afraid to live like this
But now I fly and I am free
and I am finally at peace.


At peace with real life, with pain.
Accepting pain along with him,
accepting feeling I
m insane
while waiting for another dream.


If I block the pain, its over;
I close the door to him as well.
I keep it open for my lover
although it hurts like fuckin


I might sound crazy, but its me.
The real me behind the fear.
I wouldn
t know what life should be
s like reality: unclear.
