«You are alone, with yourself, in yourself. You flow alone in something that sustains you. You are alone as a reaction to the force that sustains you in the flow of solitude.»

«You who have ignited the light of super abundance shall establish peace once again.»

From Aforismos – Versus Vox


To be a hero’s son
To belong to myself fatal madman
Full of chance with no motherland
On a pilgrimage in rare valleys
Absorbed in the great conflict of God
Coming and calling us there
On the hidden song of thunderstorms
When you are born divine, this happens
Chasing the gratitude of darkness
