Lost Beauty

“Many eyes go through the meadow, but few see the flowers in it.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) I am writing this post on my flight from Rome to Helsinki. While being in Rome, I was pondering about beauty, maybe as Jep Gambardella in Paolo Sorrentino’s film La Grande Bellezza. We have many values which construct our ”directions” in our lives. One likes driving a car, another ”travelling” every day by feet; in a same way, for one lying is a natural part of his everyday life, for another lying is the last choice and a sign of ”state of emergency”. These many values from gratitude to faith are creating personal moral paths. One of the most interesting and captivating realities is that each person has his own understanding for example of hope, faith, love and wisdom. Beauty is also an inseparable part of our self-awareness and consciousness. All this sounds very nice but in reality there are some tricky aspects in our understanding of the beauty. Our social systems and media give us very often, I could …

Circle of Indifference

Dear readers, I believe that if we all together could do every day “little things” which work out “big things”, our planet earth could become more lovely place to live. Just to give a hand of help, smile to people, thank, give money if needed… In my opinion, we have forgotten to understand what others do need. We have forgotten to be tender and sensitive, such as a Russian dramaturge and author Anton Chekhov who looked at the world with an eye of an angel, a creature not from this world, with an ability to understand what is happening with a person through hands, eyes, tender legs, walking style, breath, voice and even silence. Very often, when I am walking on streets, asking people how’s the life in the countries they are living in or meeting persons after a hard hangover, I hear “Everything is fucked up, fucked up…etc.” Do you want to accept it or not, but we have always some part in this process called “fucked up”. How? Maybe we are not always, …

Let’s laugh more!

Dear readers, I would like to wish you a magnificent new year full of joy, happiness, ideas and dreams that will come through, and especially sincere love. I was pondering what would be my first post in 2015. About what should I write? There are many fascinating objects and themes on our planet earth that could be equally interesting and charming. But before writing something, I knew all the time that there is some very special subject to write about. I had just to ”find” it. You know that to find inspiration is not always such an easy task, and almost perpetually we find our inspiration and even ingenious ideas accidentally. They come from nowhere. I believe that probably we shouldn’t wait something in a too concentrated way – ”Yes, man, I want that gorgeous yellow Lamborghini…I want be famous…I want that my husband would be like Brad Pitt…I want to be rich and happy…I want beautiful and talented kids…” I mean that while waiting and wanting too much, we won’t get anything. I have …

Arman Alizad and journey to the end of the soul

You can notice many adventure and philantropic programs shown on a TV nowadays. It has become a sort of mainstream format of program making. Probably emotional stories full of drama are selling easily, and spectators have naturally inner sense of humanity which tends to feel pity for someone. You understand that this concept of a program is definitely a real gold mine for producers and media companies. What comes to sincerity – let the responsibility for it lie with all who are creating this kind of programs, especially with hosts and their conscience. In my opinion a human shouldn’t be skeptic or cynic, but sometimes we have to analyse what is happening around us. Not just criticise but also analyse and give rational arguments. Then we’ll see a light in the end of the tunnel. There was a nice rencontre with a Finnish adventure documentary Arman ja viimeinen ristiretki (Arman and the last crusade) in 2013. Without any flattery, the documentary was grand succès in Finland, and it surprised with its authenticity and love towards …
