welcome

…to what is possibly the only website in the world actually designed to put people off.  A dubious claim to fame, but my point being if you read through it and go – hmmm… this is a bit unusual, weird even – then I’m probably not the person for you.  If you read through it and go – cool… this is a bit unusual, weird even – then we should talk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bewilderment

There are many guises for intelligence.

One part of you is gliding in a high windstream,

while your more ordinary notions

take little steps and peck at the ground.

Conventional knowledge is death to our souls,

and it is not really ours. It is laid on.

Yet we keep saying we find “rest” in these “beliefs.”

We must become ignorant of what we have been taught

and be instead bewildered.

Run from what is profitable and comfortable.

Distrust anyone who praises you.

Give your investment money, and the interest

on the capital, to those who are actually destitute.

Forget safety. Live where you fear to live.

Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.

I have tried prudent planning long enough.

From now on, I’ll be mad.

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
