My Life: Week 103

I recorded this week on my phone, at different times and segments after doing things and throughout all of it. I find it a much more interesting way to do it if I want to keep a real time journal I can look back to and reflect on. This week: Reflected on why pure reflection is considered the highest form of intelligence, even if someone isn't 'smart'. (11 minutes) Didn't come to any real answer. Started new job Got back into a nice rhythm Went to Hamburg and saw Dennis and Jan for the weekend Now I'm back (2-3 minutes) Feeling good.

My Life: Week 103

Midnight Thoughts: Let go

There's so much room forwards for things to happen. Let's not limit it. 11.10.2020 Exactly a year after I've been in Berlin, and I've only noticed while recording. I found a new job and I start in 2 days. I'm remembering what meditation is for me. And I'm finding a calm piercing force in me all over again. I'm waiting to heal from my injury that's still happening. And I'm finding sleeping on a yoga matt is helping me a bit again. It's interesting living with limited movement. We can create so much meaning for the things that brought us here, but sometimes all you have to do is let that go, so you can continue moving forward.

Midnight Thoughts: Let go

Midnight Reflections: On writing, on work, on learning

02.10.2020 I recorded this right before going out to Mama bar. I had my first French dream that day, my head is in a weird haze the past few days. I haven't been sleeping really well because I've gotten too used to my room and my bed. I know that I'll be a very different person if I had my own house with a living room and actually different places to sit and different rooms to do things. But that's maybe one of the (minor) reasons I'm writing the story of an architect in his own house. Met a lot of French people that night. It was one day after the full moon (harvest). I talk about the writing workshops, and how I think I'll really give ones when I'm more established. So I'm taking what I can from these classes as I can. I had to reflect about how being around and reflecting on writing's and exercises with other authors is affecting me, and my creative process. Like, do I want them to acknowledge my greatness, (ofc that doesn't benefit me) and would they think I overestimate myself. But essentially I think it boils down to will they love or hate me for my self-perceived artistic brilliance. Fun stuff, right? So I went back to class again without caring about that ideal again. I will be what I am and I will ask and say what I think is valuable, and I will also watch and see what also comes out from others, because things will come out of others. Although most of the time I do have a very strong opinion about what to say because I've been really on figuring out my writing process, and I think that process is what, in essence, should be taught and cultivated. The deep reading class was super fun, for sure. I'm liking this thing, and how I'm exposed to different texts I'd otherwise never be exposed to. I smoked one during the class, and I found that interesting. I am a writer. I think like one and I talk like one. And work is also a thing I need to do. Money and what you can do with it is nice. Good food, good atmospheres and the comfort of being able to purchase is also nice. But I've grown resilient with being so close to not having any money. I have like 250 euros now for the entire month, which is, of course, super fun. That was a fun reflection, and it took me out of a state of boredom. it wasn't too cool, it was like I was mentally running around to find something to do instead of finding myself engaged in doing something particular.

Midnight Reflections: On writing, on work, on learning

Midnight Thoughts: 1 year 11 months

27.09.2020 More than a year and eleven months now, I've been doing this. I talk about creation again, about where I am now. I'm almost done reading the long walk. I've been eating pretty much a lot of sugar, but I feel like I'm coming back to a better diet. I feel a power in myself and in my being, in my path and in myself. It's interesting. It's insane. It's what it is. I'm not attaching to it too much. But it is nice. I have a scar to remind me that punching the world isn't the way. Let's see what I continue to learn soon. I'll do a midnight reflection to talk about it all. Attention is all.

Midnight Thoughts: 1 year 11 months

Midnight Thoughts: On Creation

20.09.2020 The book in front of me. Forming in front of me, by me, and through me. I would be doing something, anything, and then I'd feel drawn in, I'd feel an urge. A longing for the story. I let go, I hold on to the pencil, and find myself writing away. Carving, forming, unfolding. All I have to do is let it come through, without so much obstruction. But an eye for construction. As it all comes through. This is me, on creation.

Midnight Thoughts: On Creation

Midnight Thoughts: Tenet and Flow

13.09.2020 3pm I flowed enough to catch a free movie and a party. I'm trying to listen more and more. I see that when my head is in a space of distraction, there is no need to "do" anything to get it out of that space. To finish or eliminate tasks to free up that space. There is always space. It's about reaching the clarity to find it, be it and live it. That's why in times like this, and like today, I'm meditating more. Meditation in itself is an act. And it feels like right now is the time to do it. Without the attachment and without the need. I talk about a job I'm interested in, and things that have happened throughout the week I've been back in Berlin.

Midnight Thoughts: Tenet and Flow

Midnight Mirror: Moon Axis and Chess

Recorded on the 3rd of September 2020 at the same time and place I recorded “3 days before 23” at on the 9th of June (I think I said 19th of May in the episode itself). I sat down in the quiet and cool night, and I listened to the entire thing. And then I recorded this one. A mirror. I allow myself to hold that mirror up to myself thanks to technology. I realized talking is a method I use not to be alone. To reach myself.. differently. I talked about being there then and being here now and created an axis to tell myself where the moon is at that point as I record for when I listen later. Memory can only hold on too so much. I also talked about chess and the intricacies of moving within rules. I talk about Rami, Momo and the family. It felt good. Two nights later (yesterday night) was a very beautiful night I'll only have in memory. Recorded with my Bluetooth Bose QC 35II headphones.

Midnight Mirror: Moon Axis and Chess

Midnight Thoughts: Looking at Dread

I felt like I did something irreversibly bad. And I couldn't bring myself to think it came from anything that I actually did. It made me think of the direction I'm taking, and where I am. As someone who's always trying to follow a true path, what does something like that even mean? I look at fear in this one, at least fear for me. Of loss, of gain and being in foreign states. I don't get to any answers really. I just really feel alright with whatever as long I'm true to my intelligence. To die through to that which cannot be lost. I mentioned a few things I could potentially be afraid of but I missed a few. I'm afraid of not being able to be a parent one day. That's one of the heavier ones I can think of. But I'm not worried either way. Let's be who we are as often as we get to. A few other fears: 1- not being able to settle in a place I can call home soon. 2- having to go back to Jordan because I couldn't renew my visa or find a job to keep it going. But I'm alright with either. If...

Recording on the lsp4 and I'm still getting used to it. Not the best choice when going walking around without a lavier mic. I wish I had something that can record me on spot without all the hassle. Yeah.
