when your soul is inflamed, find water

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 26, 2013, 5:38 AM
you can never truly measure the depth of the wound another soul inflicts upon you.
out of shame, lack of courage and weakness you keep those knives stuck into your soul, hidden in the tenebrae.
now build up the courage to spit them out and don't fear the flood - it eventually evaporates.
your wounds will bleed, but they will also bleed dry.

a letter to strangers

Journal Entry: Fri May 31, 2013, 12:33 PM
... of profound gratitude

unquestionably, so much of human experience is ineffable, yet we are sometimes irrestistibly driven by an unfathomable urge
to transfigure our thoughts into slightly more tangible forms - written words,
like trying to build wires that should somehow convey our inner electricity, the flickering light of our spirit.
there are people who briefly touch your soul without even knowing how vital they were at that particular moment in your existence;
caught in time and space, the memory of them returns in flashbacks.
in the middle of chaos, there's occasional clarity on the contour of a stranger's mouth.
strangers that read you openly from their first glance, who are able to see through you,
through your layers of secrets, through your disguise,
who take your blindfold off and let you see your own true essence;
strangers in whose eyes you spot a flare of reassurance that rekindles the nuances of your fading hope;
strangers who make loose ends meet  or untie the knots that were keeping you stagnant;
the clear tones and poignant words errupting from their vessels, and echoing through your being,
whereas the voice of truth might not even have been their own, only channeling impulses from beyond our physical reality.
still, some susceptible nerve endings in your matrix had received their stimulus, no doubt. and never doubt who you are,
a stranger reminded you of that as well; trust your intuition.

we spin pirouettes until we converge into each other, we are contaminating energies
capable of igniting bones, and minds, and hearts, and spirits.

thank you

* to the stranger that, when seeing you trembling and crying in the middle of the street, asked if you were alright.
* to the stranger who stopped in front of you, on that ferociously cold and wild winter evening, and told you that
the one who loves you, doesn't make you cry; to go inside because otherwise you'll be freezing.
and sure, you've seen a double meaning in that phrase - that you'll find your answers within your flammable self
* to the strangers who smiled at you because and despite your sorrowful expression.
* to the old woman who caressed your hands and told you to remain truthful and to center yourself;
the one who also highlighted the value of kindness, saying:
if in your lifetime you're not being kind to others, what else do you have to offer?
* to the old woman who handed you a white rose and poured loving words onto you until they were overflowing.
* to the stranger who set you apart from everyone else and inspired deeper thoughts & clearer understanding
of faith and judgemental tendencies.
* to the healer who advised you to let go of people who might poison your spirit,
that you need to keep strong and unperturbed.
* to the stranger who wrote to you, inquiring about your actual state of mind, expressing genuine care.
* to the stranger who passionately shared his story of awakening into a pronounced environmental awareness.

* to all those strangers who left a distinguished imprint and whose vibrations lifted you higher.
...

their fleeting appearance in your life might have saved you.

"I feel very close to those who don't consider photography as a 'slice' of reality, but rather as a conceptual structure, a synthetic form of pictorial language, even a suprematist image."

"My task is the reunion of the visible and the invisible worlds, photography allows me to pervert the established method of perception amongst those who see and those who don't."

"My images are fragile; I've never seen them, but I know they exist, and some of them have touched me deeply."

- Evgen Bavcar, a blind photographer

in loving memory of Anca, dubScartz

i am god by dubScartz

she was born on June 12, 20 years ago; since then she has spread an all-embracing love and light around,
making everyone a bit happier by her mere presence;
beautiful soul, warm heart, brilliant, adorably clumsy and hilarious
her smile was always so contagious
she believed that you don't need a reason to help people and she did so whole-heartedly

I'm sure your spirit keeps shining bright on other planes of existence in the Universe,
so... farewell, darling heart
and thank you for making my world a bit more colourful, when I needed it the most

waiting for the news. by dubScartz


P.S. to the world:
Spend as much time as possible with every person you care about, even virtually.
Tell them how much you love them and be constantly grateful for their presence;
you might feel sorry if there's no second chance
to acknowledge their existence and express your feelings.

breaking out of cocoons, nests and shells
caterpillars, moths and fragile black butterflies
changing forms, transforming thoughts
destructive and creative

paradiso e inferno

how precious the light you find within when the darkness swallows you whole
don't be afraid of the dark, resurrect yourself
love is light
thrilling and blinding your eyes
everything is tragic and everything is beautiful
ashes and hope

we die to each other constantly
shed your old skin and die to the past year
welcome the new year
abounding of experiences that have never been

untouched time
nothing but an unpolluted opportunity to write the story anew

absurd abstractions

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 16, 2012, 3:49 PM



"All of us possess the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit. We can classify art in terms of which eye it mostly relies on.
Realism and naturalism, for example, rely mostly on the eye of flesh; abstract, conceptual, and surrealistic art rely mostly on the eye of mind;
and certain great works of spiritual art rely on the eye of contemplation, the eye of spirit.
Each of these eyes sees a different world—the world of material objects, of mental ideas, of spiritual realities.
And each eye can paint what it sees. The higher the eye, the deeper the art."

- Ken Wilber

injured souls and mysterious skins

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 25, 2012, 10:11 AM
the flesh covers the bone
and they put a mind
in there and
sometimes a soul,
and the women break
vases against the walls
and the men drink too
much
and nobody finds the
one
but keep
looking
crawling in and out
of beds.
flesh covers
the bone and the
flesh searches
for more than
flesh.

Cœur de Pirate - Fondu au Noir

:heart:


Dors, le mal est passé et tu entres dans la danse
Le pire de côté, tes rêves entrent en cadence
Tu sèmes le bonheur à chaque pas que tu fais
Et à ton réveil la vie reprend son train







































Certes tu passe comme de l'air dans un monde sans musique
Dépourvu de tes nuances, un peu trop spécifiques
Tu nages en douleur et il est presque temps
De fermer les yeux dans la mort qui t'attend


Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il comprend pas
Qu'une mine loge dans ton cœur depuis longtemps
Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il te voit pas
Alors que ton sourire enfin s'éteindra

















Dors, le mal est passé, il te rattrapera pas
Le souffle coupé, tu n'es plus son appât
Ta peine s'est fondue au délire des autres
Qui oublieront bien vite que tu n'es plus des nôtres


Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il comprend pas
Qu'une mine loge dans ton cœur depuis longtemps
Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il te voit pas
Alors que ton sourire enfin s'éteindra

















Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il comprend pas
Que nul ne nage dans ton cœur depuis longtemps
Et si ça fait mal c'est parce qu'il te voit pas
Alors que ton sourire enfin s'éteindra.

:music: Florence + The Machine - Shake it out :music:



Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn

And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I'm always dragging that horse around

And our love is pastured, such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it's always darkest before the dawn























I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn


And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off

And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It's a final mess but it's left me so empty
It's always darkest before the dawn















And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
It's a shot in the dark and right at my throat
Cause looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well, what the hell, I'm gonna let it happen to me
