Zouldust is for this movement.
The letter Z, in numerology connected to the letter 8, inescapable because it is you and me, it us the sum of all letters united. It is full circle: a concept which I have recently used to grow this platform further in the future. Stay tuned.
Z is also infinity. The number eight and letter Z stand for an irrevocable process in which we are all involved. It stands for constant change. In my own interpretation; they are the bearers of truth, healing, and eventually so rebirth.
As a child I opened my eyes to the world awaiting some kind of universal waking up. I was immediately shocked at the ways adults seemed to walk around only half alive, denying their paths and purity.
Denying their right to a natural and fulfilling way of living.
At the same time, I didn’t seem to be able to connect to children my age. This meant that mostly, I found my solace in the company of elders or animals. The wise and quiet.
And so in my younger years arose within me a faith and feeling of purpose that didn’t belong to any system, to any religion or conformed lifestyle produced by human society. It was of one truth; which can in fact never be spoken. You can speak of truth, but not truth itself. It was one of wholeness, love and of light. And the actualisation of this truth circle entailed a revolution of human consciousness.
Coming into the teenage years was a haze, a happy time where my heart and mind were finally in a more grounded, focused state dedicated to school, friends, sports and family. I had since the age of 10 found the love for the wild and beautiful horses, and this is a love that lasted. My spiritual refuge back then was found in books, music, nature & animals, and at times in interactions with my closest people. I didn’t much think of it then, and the profound intellectual, personal depth of my earlier years was at this point resting in the background of carefree curiosity.
I was properly free and physically strong for the first time in my then very young life. It all seemed back at that point, that this was exactly how great and free I was supposed to feel in, and about, myself.
My later teenage years, entering my 20s, until now – being 22 1/2 years of age writing these words – have been a carousel. They’ve meant a journey of going back to truth and reconnecting with my spirit’s purpose and understanding. In a simpler version, it’s been about grindin’ and getting real with myself here on Earth. It included remembering and recollecting memories from childhood experiences. Yet also being able to stay at the same workplace for a year exactly to the date, a job which I only did for the money. It wasn’t any less important because of it; a lesson purely, just as everything previous and after.
These past years have also been travels, getting lost, getting found, then lost again, writing about it, not writing about it, trying to make decisions, deciding to go on a 5 week yoga teacher training adventure in the jungles of Bali, learning how to be strong through (not despite!) my hightened sensitive side, and meeting a hell of a lot of magic people on the road.
All through my tween years until now my arts have followed me dearly. The mediums in which I outlet myself have varied in form and identity but my core expression has remained the same. Writing, photography, film and yoga have after a few years of exploring to this day, become my main tools of sacred art.
It is now, with a world of passion and an ocean of ideas that Zouldust is ready to take form. It is a space that I dedicate to the oneness, healing, purpose and art of my life as well as the journey of every other being I, in one way or another, meet.
Let the circle, the wave, the journey begin.
