The levitating monk

“Prince Gautama, who had become Buddha, saw one of his followers meditating under a tree at the edge of the Ganges River. Upon inquiring why he was meditating, his follower stated he was attempting to become so enlightened he could cross the river unaided. Buddha gave him a few pennies and said: “Why don’t you seek passage with that boatman. It is much easier.”

Buddhist joke

The story of Convenience and Trouble

Humankind invest in convenience and comfort.

We choose the path of less resistance as often as we can.

It’s what has brought us here.

Our need for it is self-fulfilling. The more we get the more we need.

“It’s a nice life you have there. Be a shame if anything happened to it.” Convenience warns us, knowing how much control it has over us.

Like most power it feeds on complicitness.

When we expose it it’ll become impotent. Ironically we won’t. We don’t want Trouble.

Take possession of your life

“You can’t just walk into things with your eyes half open. You’ve got to know what you’re getting into and take possession of your life. It’s a thought process you constantly have to reaffirm or you’ll drift.”

Paraphrased quote by Guy Ritchie

Outliving relevancy

Among my scariest thoughts is the one that in 100.. 500.. 1000 years from now everything will still be the same. And this is harsh.. But nature takes care of a lot of problems over time. If we mess with immortality many ideas might very well outlive their relevancy.

Night and Day

Night and Day

At night
our mind
live in dreams

At day
our mind
dreams in reality

At night
our dreams
is our freedom

At day
our reality
is our prison

At night
we believe
we are true

At day
we know
we are true

At night
At day
we are mistaken

TiuTiu historien

11 år siden startede JJ og jeg vores første business sammen. Hør os fortælle historier mens vi mindes intense, lærerige oplevelser som friske og naive iværksættere. Ufiltreret og med detaljer vi ikke har delt med andre før.

Take a pause

Take a pause

Take a pause. Its the only honest advice I can wholeheartedly wish for you.

Take a pause like nobody is watching.

Take a pause. Inhale the sky. Let the waves of the oceans wash over your mind. Feel the colours of the sunset. Taste the texture of the air passing through you.

Take a pause. Be quiet for a generous moment. Notice how the nature subtly approaches you.

Take a pause. Relax your body without enforcing discipline upon it.

Take a pause. Observe the stillness coming before a storm that never arrives.

Take a pause. Enjoy the serenity of the mountains.

Take a pause not for the infinity your body will be rewarded.

Take a pause celebrating how swiftly you can reach nowhere.

Take a pause to thank your heart for its loyal beats.

Take a pause. Find comfort in how the universe informs the answers to your questions.

Take a pause. Experience your blood calmly dance to the music of your heart.

Take a pause not because its the only thing that is efficient.

Take a pause as your soul undergo a soothing rebirth.

Take a pause to honour the long journey that brought you here.

Take a pause. Preserve your heat like snowflakes coming together to protect the landscape from another cycle.

Take a pause to see your thoughs from a far.

Take a pause. Contemplate the language of the space that surrounds you.

Take a pause to appreciate the curve you were granted by time.

Take a pause. Sense life showering you with kindness.

Take a pause. Take a pause like your body, conciousness and innerself are friends finally reunited.

Take. A. Pause. Its the only place you can release you worries into the abyss without retaliation.

I don’t care


I don’t care

My glass is almost empty.
But I don’t care.

My card will be declined if
I try to buy more to drink.
But I don’t care.

I was way too tired
to go out in the first place.
But I don’t care.

I had important things
planned for tomorrow that
aren’t likely to happen.
But I don’t care.

Everyone pushes to
party harder.
But I don’t care.

The others think I’ve grown
weak declining their free beer.
But I don’t care.

I don’t care.

I’m as drunk as I need to be
and I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.

The only thing that matters is
I finally have her undivided attention.

The rest was, as they say,
a journey meant to be. ❤️

The hope within despair

You can believe it to be contradictory but even within despair, in its heart of hearts, there lies hope.. Because a condition of despair… Still assumes a life to be lived and that means a chance of meaning to be meant.. and love to be loved. Life is always worth losing.. Because it is worth living.
