what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
nb. yes, i want to add that i do appreciate the fact that for other people god can mean something significant. these people ask themselves questions about god, or even ask me questions about god. i have no problem with this, it’s just that for me personally, the idea of god doesn’t mean anything.
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
nb. no, because it’s got nothing to do with me.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
nb. not particularly. i do think the relationship between god and religion is special for some people. i think these certain people have their own god, which isn't necessarily a universal understanding of god..it can be different for everyone.
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
nb. some things do seem to happen in a funny way, so maybe there is a reason behind certain things. but i’m not sure about this question.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
nb. love is about doing something with conviction; because you want to have it, or share it.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
nb. uh, yes i think everything with a proper mind feels something like love.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
nb. trust, time and again, sharing things with each other. for example, sharing all it is that you feel, and want..things like this i think can make a relationship last a lifetime.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
nb. i now understand that you have to accomplish things..get things done. you have to go for it if you want something. i’ve definitely learned to love something for the first time.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
nb. there’s a lot of business going on in humanity, there’s a lot of stuff that can break you as well. of course there are people that look out for others, but for the main part humanity is very self-centred, with this idea that you can 'make it or break it' in life.
i don’t see the world as a tough world though, you make of it what you want. if you see it as tough you’re probably going to have a difficult time as a result of your outlook, but if you want to feel like everything goes well and you apply a positive mindset to everything then you’re free to do anything you want. it is important to know that you can change your perspective on life as well, like me, sometimes i'm going through a hard time and i feel like the projects i’m doing aren’t going well, but if i feel better then all everything inevitably seems better.
