Lets break the ice with some humour. I am the best of the travel ban in US? An iranian, norwegian, muslim, singer , songwriter, aspiring comedian and a vegan. My last song, a satirical political song, is a teaser for 45th POTUS.. Go to my blogpost archive in order to see if you can feel the song: https://alisobut.wordpress.com
Spirituality & religion
I have very often wondered who I am – spiritually especially. Very often the useless challenges I meet defines me. If I am constantly struggling to find & resolve these challenges that at end of the day doesn’t matter much, I’d lose my inner peace. Having a religion & belonging to an organized branch of one of the great (in numbers) religions in our contemporary history is a challenge.
Dark times in poverty
The darkness we witness comes with light. The extremists are the few and not the many. However it doesn’t really help those who loose loved ones in reprehensible acts of mass murder. It also amazes me how easy it is to live both in financial and intellectual poverty, being unable to take responsibility. At the same time it shouldn’t amaze me really since it is exactly that poverty that takes us away the power of responsible thinking and reflection over our own decision and fate.
What I do?
I publish stuff on my page and hope you like what you see, hear & read. If you like well my pleasure – if not well I guess that’s how life is. I have found out that my purpose in life is to try to live in the moment. The reason I have chosen the arts as a way of expression is simply that it freezes the time and makes it easier to remember the ups and downs that I have experienced in life. Like the song I am hearing now, Alice Deejays “Better off alone” is a constant reminder of the innocence of my youth & my belief in ideals of humanity. Before belonging to any religion or faith, we belong to a larger family – that family is called the human race.
