I took this beautiful sentence out of several beautiful sentences from the text of Ole my sweet friend's interview and I quote it here:

I hear that if you can't explain things simply you don't understand it.


Believe me, if you read the text of the interview, you give me the right why I chose not to write an introduction to this beautiful interview because Ole's word is very effective and strong and I can not add anything to it.


I wish my good friend Ole success and happiness.


Thank you!





1- Please present yourself (Name, education, Civil status and...)

2-What is your artistic specialize?

. I see myself as an artist of life, trying to live from my heart. Through being creative in how I live, eat, train, think, act, and also through expressing my poetry and music.


3- When and how did you become interested in this field?

. I guess with music I have always been interested but since I began my journey with psychedelics and plant medicines I saw that I had some talent and passion for it. I guess from around 8 years ago... But learning instruments for the last 3-4 years.


4- Who was your motivator?

. Myself or my higher self, I been having times of very powerful experiences that felt the need to write and live differently and do what I needed to begin being more creative and dear to express myself also meeting more open-minded kind, and loving people who supported me.


5- What was your parent’s reaction?  

. My parents have been so supportive of what I wanted or needed. I think it's because of not having the same support from their own parents but also because of fear. I feel more support now the latest year from them.


6- When started you such as an IAKP member?

. I began in the IAKP When I finished my Kambo training in 2016.


7- Where is IAKP? What is IAKPs’ goal?

IAKP is based in the UK but has practitioners around the world. The goal is to make a safe and reliable community around serving Kambo and making it a legal medicine.


8- Are you thankful and happy because of your activities as a follower of ancient Amazon wisdom?

. I am very grateful for my choices to dive deeper into this work with medicines and self-discovery. It has done so much good to me, for releasing toxic habits of my own mind and emotions from my past, childhood, and all that goes along with life. I feel much healthier, relaxed, stronger, and free in who I am.


9- What is the Quantum? I guess, you are interested in Quantum. Please tell us what is connecting between Quantum and wisdom?

. Quantum? Why do you ask? Quantum is very hard ro explain in short or mabye not. I hear that if you cant explain things simple you dont understand it properly so mabye i dont. But for me it represent the mystics of life, like how we can visiulize a dream and work towards it and it becomes real, but also how if we manage to feel really well and loving and good on our inside, our outside world also changes. Telepathy, healing and such. But this is probably not what the word quantum means in that sense i guess i should read more about it.


10- How you see the view your activities? What is your point about universal worldview?

. I don't understand the first question here? Hmm, I feel life is like a big collective dream and that if we all had the ability to tap into the true nature of unconditional love and living more from our hearts, we would change this collective dream very fast but this was maybe not the right answer as the question was a little odd for me... maybe you can help me here.


11- Can you become one part of the cultural movement for motivation in youth or new generation in your country and so than?

. I would love to be a part of that, I already am in a sense too but I want to create a community around the things that I work with becoming for others who want to help themselves and the world.


12- How is your relationship with nature?

. I love nature, I walk, run swim outside in the sea, forests, and mountains daily all around the year. It's amazing how beautiful this planet is, our mother that cares for us all of us could learn to listen and live more in tune with her.


13- Can explain you about connecting of wisdom and ethics with spirit or soul?

. Not sure where to begin, I feel the spiritual path is not a straight path but we learn along the way, to listen to our hearts, intuition and facing our fears and shadows. (our darker sides of our persona). Like we all have both light and dark in us and if we only focus on our light we are actually not helping the world. We have to be willing to see our own shortcomings and negative sides and also be able to accept and love that too, because it is who we are and being aware of this makes us more capable of acting on what is right in this world... For me, it has been trying to do my best with everything I have, integrity.

Trying to be honest but in a kind compassionate way. Learning to be alone and loving my own company. Learning about meditation and finding inner peace. Taking care of myself as if my body is a temple, so to be healthy, eat healthily, find out what's right for me. Taking care of people in my life. Giving love where it is needed.

Love can be given in all kinds of ways so I can give a couple of examples. Like seeing a person who struggles with walking and carrying a heavy load and helping that person. But also if I see someone who is doing something bad to confront the person and try to explain it is not right or show that it is not good.


14-Is the origin of the intellect-wisdom the soul or the body, or both? Can you explain that by Quantum?

. Not sure what to say here, I feel wisdom can come from the experience of life, but also from our higher-self(god, nature), From our hearts to but to gain wisdom and knowledge we need to take care of our bodies and minds too so I feel you can't have one without the other. Meaning that it is all connected like nature. I have a tattoo on my leg with a symbol of the Zia Indian. A part of the meaning of this symbol is the four aspects for connection, to take care of ourselves first(self-love) healthy body healthy mind, healthy spirit. If these are done right we might gain a more meaningful tranquil feeling of life and success. Not sure if this makes sense.


15- What is connecting between wisdom, ethics with spiritualist method?

. I think I might have answered this already. Maybe u rephrase the question?


16- How can you help our  world  become a better place to live?

. I think I help this world by simply loving myself, nature, and life more and by loving you also become more prone to want to give back and do something for our world. So I feel it is good to use my gift like singing and poetry and kindness and energy to help out and inspire others who might feel the need to be lifted up from the dark. I am currently thinking more about what I should do next in my life for this.


17- Have you more word to say or suggest for our readers?

. Maybe you can think about what else you are wondering and if there is anything else you want to ask about. Maybe there are answers to our dreams?
