Take me somewhere

05.30 AM, Falköping, Sweden

"Dear diary."

I'd like to start with quoting one of the men who made a difference in this world, John F. Kennedy.

"When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses. The artist... becomes the last champion of the individual mind and sensibility against an intrusive society. Society must set the artist free to follow his or her vision wherever it takes them...For art establishes basic human truths, which must serve as the touchstone for our judgement..."

Think about that one for a while.
Because I have been thinking about it, about what it means to me, about what it means to the world. I've been thinking about everything. My life. Our life. This life. The existence, why we walk upon this earth, why we are here, what we have done, and what will become of everything. Existence.
As we wonder what brought us here and with what purpose, the sun keeps rising and setting, leaving us with the same questions we had from the beginning of time... not that the sun doesn't care about us....it only doesn't care for our questions continuing his cosmic dance with the rest of existence...apart from us... And now I finally made my decision. A decision to try and make a difference. And the natural question is - how do you make a difference when you're just a human like everyone else, inhabiting a planet where life is such a challenge. I don't know, so I'm going to start somewhere, and see where it leads me.

I see life as a journey. You begin your journey the second you draw your first breath, when light reaches your eyes and your brain starts to adapt into this new, cold, unfriendly world that you have just been released into. And from that day, every step you take will lead you down new roads, new paths, with a burning desire to explore, learn, create, discover and move forward, onwards into eternity. My journey has only gotten me so far, and now I have taken one step towards changing my life forever, taking control of it and doing everything I can to make a difference and leave my footprints on the surface of the earth, and in the history of man. My first step is creating something I don't even know what it is yet. I will try and explain it the best I can.

Living is an art known to every man from the beginning. But not all men learn how to master the art, they just give it their best shot and see where it takes them. Art, in all it's amazing forms, is a way of expressing humanity, and all that comes with it. Music, poetry, painting, writing - it all comes down to the point where you feel like you are learning, and by learning you are evolving your mind. And since I feel the need to evolve, and let the world evolve with me, I'll begin with starting a project - if you can call it a project, and try to make something out of it that means something to someone. I shall begin with myself, and take further steps to improve my mind, expose it to new sensations, new impressions. I shall explore new worlds, discover new things and make every minute of my life count. And with my own progression, I shall seek out other individuals, and try to make them part of it, this project, try to make them understand the purpose of all this. We shall reach an understanding for each other, and together we shall set out to try and open the eyes of those who have been blinded by the world's unforgiving way of restricting our minds, putting them in chains and try to kill our creative minds. We are but vessels on this eternal journey into the future, but we can control them, we can disable the autopilot and steer towards our dreams.

This can be hard to understand, and I respect that. So with the following simple words, I hope to get the attention of individuals who feel the same as me.

If you're an artist - in any way - you can help me make a difference. If you create music, poetry, art, literature or any form of work that makes the world more beautiful and versatile - contact me. This is about showing the world we exist, in whatever form it may be. The societies in the world are based on controlling people, to put them in place and have them caged. I want to change that, I want to tell everyone that they have the right to be free, and let their mind think in bigger pictures. In the beginning, I will focus on getting my message out to the society, and the best way of doing so is to post it on the walls, to leave our message where everyone can see it, and let it be known. This is often referred to as street art, and since most people live in densely populated areas known as towns or cities, it is a fitting description. Grab a spray can, cover the walls with the words of freedom, let everyone know that this is our world, and we will never stop fighting for the right of free expression of mind.

There are many people in this world who profit from the whole process of putting individuals in chains, and by chains I mean the everyday life many people live. The normal 9 to 5-life that is slowly poisoning our minds, prohibiting them from thinking freely and killing our creativeness. These type of people feel that by controlling as many people as possible, putting them in the degenerating machine that our society is, they reach some superior position where they feel they are in control. They are wrong - and we will show them that there is no more powerful force in the world than mans will to become free. Their laws will clash against our creativeness, and the battle will be gruesome.

It sounds dramatic, and maybe it isn't, but in my mind it's a fight I'm destined to participate in.
So - if you feel like you can contribute to this project in any way, by acting as a free individual and use your creative mind to make a difference, contact me, let me know you understand or want to understand what this is all about.
Send me an email at twistedorigin@hotmail.com or comment this post if you'd like more information.

At length, I feel the need to give this... project, or movement or whatever you may call it, a name. And there is no way that this will end up with only one name, but until further notice, I will call it "Lifestream". It symbolizes the life we are all a part of, and everything that streams through all living things on this planet. It is the power to create our own destiny, and the force that guides us towards our bitter end. So, Lifestream it is.

Feel it. Explore. Dream. Discover.


  1. Jag har alltid, eller ja, på senare år iaf, velat ändra på en hel del saker. Jag har så mycket jag vill skriva om, det bara kliar i fingrarna, men jag vet inte hur jag ska börja.. Ja, iaf, det jag vill säga att jag har en vilja att ändra på iaf någonting här i världen, få bort diskriminering, människors syn på varandra överhuvud taget och ja... Mycket mer. Jag kan inte förklara det bättre just nu, men ja...

    Det jag vill säga helt enkelt är att jag också vill förändra samhället, världen, min existens.

  2. Det enda som krävs är ett öppet sinne, då är man en bra bit närmre målet. Jag håller på och planerar allting lite närmre nu, men vill du bidra med något du skapat eller göra något för att få andra att tänka så får du hemskt gärna göra det =)

  3. Jo, det är sant. Okej, vi får se vad jag kan åstadkomma, brainstormingen fortsätter.

  4. "let me know you understand or want to understand what this is all about."

    Jag är aningen för trött för att ta in allting och sätta ihop det till riktiga meningar i mitt huvud just nu, men det lilla jag lyckades läsa och förstå lät intressant, så 'want to understand' passar rätt bra in på mig.
    - Förklara närmre när jag är vaknare, tack! 3

  5. I will, kontakta mig när du är vaken nog ^^
