i see you Frihemsplan Youlian Tabakov

The world / the Creation is a nice place. It is a beautiful organism. Alas, it seems, we rarely see it in its essence, hidden by our personal projections. It is like if we are looking at and in the same time away from ourselves, in an infinite game of love, hate and longing.

But what would be if we saw the essence of the Creation for what it is, and what if we would accept it and subsequently start loving it? May be it would be an opportunity to start loving ourselves?

Or maybe we first have to accept and start loving ourselves so that we can project that to the world around us.

The topics of this project are universal and presented in the context of our modern times that make it universal and necessary
