Imagine No didn´t exist

The other day my friend Magnus invited me for dinner at his house. As he and his wife were still preparing the food, I sat at the table with his two sons Anton and Theodor, five and seven years old.
I was enjoying the beautiful sunset, overhearing them chatting.

Out of the blue Anton said something amazing. “What did you say?” I asked taken aback, not being sure I heard him right. “Well”, he said timidly rather reluctant to repeat, “imagine if No didn´t exist”…I couldn´t believe it. “So what would happen if  No didn´t exist?”, I asked.

I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
