An intense experience. Life behind the scenes; where the shadow disappears and everything becomes visible. Illuminated. The dissolution of the physical body, while it‘s the very center of this experience. The spirit travels through transcendent spaces. It constantly expands.

And what if beauty is still kept hidden from me? What if I still can‘t see myself through beauty? What if even transcendence is not enough to live beauty? What if it is not enough?


Did you ever think about
the feelings you don’t like,
all the awkward little feelings
that are locked up in a shrine...?

Can’t we notice the distance
this behavior creates?
Why can’t we just be able
to open our gates...?
Why do we just want the feelings
that tell us that we are great?
Why do we ignore the healing
that is in our biggest shades...?

Why do we just want the merit
that improves ourselves?
Why do we just build up temples
that reminds us of our hate?

I want to be peaceful
with all the movements deep inside,
all the curious convolutions
that shall make me open wide.

I want the taste of the beauty
in my soul that’s left behind.
I wanna see all the flowers
that are growing while I’m blind.

I am still blind for the beauty in my soul
that’s left behind...
