Welcome to People Life Politics And Bullshit!
A blog on people, everyday LIFE, philosophy, politics and all the bullshit we have to deal with but not necessarily like! LIFE and all the aspects of it, have always interested me. Yes, LIFE, everything between heaven and earth. How incredible, mysterious and surrealistic, is it not?
By creating this room, let’s call it a lense of exchange, I want to put together a blissful blend of everything that has to do with LIFE. Through written words, pictures and videos, I will share my experiences, others way of being and seeing life, and small moments that are worth sharing and which makes life worth living.
My biggest gift in life has been my curiosity and the sense of wonder. I have always been fascinated by people, their stories and the mechanism behind history repeating itself. How generation after generation can walk through the same path with or without awareness.
Is what we call culture the same as collective consciousness/unconsciousness? We keep repeating, doing the same things over and over again, many times without thinking or even asking why? Is it part of the culture, the norm of cults?
For me, it is tantalizing to hear what triggers people to move forward in life and implies their decisions. How some live and breathe for creativity while others drown their sorrows in a pint of beer, even finding passion in it. Some are natural-born philosophers and even a little flower inspires them. Others prefer talking bullshit and get a headache hearing the word philosophy. We, humans, are amazing and amusing. Just give it a second and reflect on how few of us mobilize it all and make it to the White House. Most of us will be forgotten by the time we are dead and will not even be mentioned in history books. And have you ever thought about who pulls the wheels of society forward? And would the governments exist or there be the White House if there were no people?
Who am I? My name is Parisa. A wild gipsy woman as I call myself. I was born in Iran, moved to Norway at the age of 14. Today, I am at the end of my 40-s.
Do I consider my self as an Iranian or Norwegian? I speak different languages, my hair is dark, my skin is brown, and at heart, I feel like a gipsy. I am a fortunate gipsy who has a red cover passport that allows me to travel around the world. Since the political situation in Iran forced us to move abroad, and that again has affected my life in so many profound ways, I have had to search for the meaning of identity? Who am I beyond my personality? Personality formed by and within the boundaries of societies and family.
For me, identity has turned out to be more subtle, and I see how politicians use “the identity card” in their power game, and how political matters affect living in different societies. The way politicians rule put traces on our individual human lives. For me, politic is about caring for other human beings and being aware of how to use power wisely and for everyone’s best. Completely different from how it is practised in reality out there.
Who are you? What in life amuses you or gives you a tickling sensation? What moves you on? What drowns you? Are you an explorer or someone who enjoys life through the lenses of observation? Have you preserved your childish curiosity? Or adult life’s seriousness has taken over every inch of your life? What does identity mean for you and what about politics?
Anyhow, I hope my creative room (this blog /vlog ) and all the voices I bring in it will give you a moment of inspiration, joy or maybe even some new reflections.
By the way, since I want to reach to as many people as possible and have neither Norwegian nor English as my native language, I have chosen to shape the Norwegian room. In that, I will publish articles in Norwegian, but I will also try to translate them to English and maybe sometimes it will only be in English without Norwegian translation.
PS. I have suddenly realized how much work it is to do a blog/vlog and so much fun. (If you ever consider forming one )
