PURE FAMILIAR SPIRITS
Pure familiar spirits are often confused with gnomes, because they can take many forms, including those of the dwarves or lutki, but also a cricket. Normally they are invisible to humans, but sometimes they show them self. They are all friendly creatures as long as they are treated well and it would be nice to leave some delicious food for them.
The spirit of “water” Long live today and tomorrow and forever.
A drink for propitiate is a good habit and a glass in honor, nobody can deny!
Because the door can be opened, is their unity feel a stronger Completed One against all the other side of the room , more than the mere unarticulated wall . This is dumb , but the door talks . The finite nature , in which we make our borders always somewhere on the infinite of physical or metaphysical being. Thus the door is in the image of the boundary point at which man actually can stand permanently .
The Wendenstube is dedicated to that Slavic tribe, who found in the 7th century new home in the Spreewald. The name derives from latin venidi – the coming, the strangers. They used the “Kaupen” in Burg, those slight embankments, which protrude from the marshy meadows and offered space for dry shelters.
Noble strives for harmony, not for equality. The community strives for equality, not for harmony. The educated drives the accuracy no further than that corresponding to the nature of things.
„Soul Plant“ Lavendel
“What rosemary for the mind, is lavender for the soul,” is an old saying. The character of lavender could be described as a go-ahead esthete in search of clarity, order and cleanliness. The name derives from the Latin word lavare, wash off, and since time immemorial, lavender and lavender oil for the production of cleaning essences, soaps and perfumes used - where it provides flowers fresh scent and on top of that a germ-inhibiting effect.
The angel has eternity, infinity, from which it comes, as it were behind him; and his wings are for the visible image.
So we might understand that it can be said:
Actually, everyone has wings, they are just hidden. And in some moments these wings grow - mentally - again :
Then the space of eternity opens behind the people , it can feel as endowed with wings , like a messenger of the Lord , who speaks from a higher range to earth;
and "Angel" means literally: "messenger" messenger of eternity.
„The perfect man uses his mind like a mirror: it is not accompanied back yet he goes forward, he answers (on things) without hoarding it; therefore he reaches the end of things (which is reflected in him) without being injured” (Zuangzi). The force of the mirror is that it receives, but does not hold; it reflects everything that presents itself to him, as he passes it without hanging to it. He does not strike back, nor does he want to keep, it can appear in and disappear without ever fix. Therefore, he can exercise his ability infinitely without ever taking damage. The mirror even serves as an image for the way in which you, by taking advantage of the transit point, in its ability to be replaced - without wearing of yourself.
Females design is the power of the time, the rituals of conversion. If the female would determine our construction and housing, it would be dynamic rather than static, would break the time factor and its power, the rhythm, in the architecture, the trust in life, the closeness to nature, but also the transforming power of Chaos. It is more about the essential than aesthetic presentation, longer life and thus creation instead of material manifestation, more to humanity and to commit itself as values. With regard to a female architecture could speak of times healing power rather than places of healing. To me it is not about revival of matriarchy but a matter that the women should be aware of their very special power. If the men succeed to find their inner power which is beyond direct living in a male environment, then from the two forces finally a synthesis can grow that will make us richer and healthier.
A world of its own: The Russian Banya. It is one of those bathing traditions which in his origin cannot be beaten. Heat of birches and a decoction of pickled birch are the ingredients. It turns to be perfect if the Bannik, that good “Banja Spirit”, knocks the decoction with the birch branches on the back of the bather.
FAUN fountain in the "RAST"
The faun is an ancient Italian origin and was for the human being the god of nature and as protector of farmers, shepherds, cattle and fields.
Now, our friend with his unusual expression and good intentions found a new job: He protects the dreams of our guests!
Flax (linseed) was cultivated in Mesopotamia already 10.000 years ago and is considered the oldest crop for clothes in the world. In Egypt, flat boxes lined the banks of the Nile. The flax plant has been spun into long fibers and woven into fine cloth. The flax fiber could be processed so delicate that the substance was translucent, so they called the fine linen "woven moonlight".
Better to take pleasure in a rose than to put its root under a microscope.
Daffodils, narcissus, snowflake – Holdiays for your eyes.
Faun,from Latin Faunus, a word of unknown origin. A god of the countryside, worshipped especially by farmers and shepherds, equivalent of Greek Pan. Formerly men with goat horns and tails, later with goat legs, which caused them to be assimilated to satyrs, but they have diverged again lately.
Heat is energy. The word energy comes from the Greek “en ergeo”, which means: I am working. So where conversion activity prevails, is heat.
The Hotel Hall
More than 6000 years, the cultures have surrounded the Mediterranean Sea with their temples and churches, but also the theaters and cities were all build the same system, which later was named the Golden Ratio.
It is a method that allows express both geometrically as the same number sequences by certain proportion. The resulting therefrom proportions are also found as a natural breakdown in the human body.
In the early days, the result of these holy numbers had a sacred character, because their existence was interpreted as a divine gift to the humans. By the Greek philosophers began the rational analysis of the geometry of the golden section and its connection to the world of numbers. Formations with the proportions of the golden ratio were perceived as particularly aesthetically and interpreted as an expression of the relationship between man and gods. For this reason, all aspects of art were designed by this system. For subsequent cultures, the Greek classical period was characterized as a model of a perfect art par excellence and has been repeated in certain intervals repeatedly.
Modern science could then show with the help of mathematics, that the golden ratio occurs as a natural order also in biology, astronomy and solid state physics.

„Und mag die ganze Welt versinken, Hafis, mit dir,
mit dir allein Will ich wetteifern!
Lust und Pein Sei uns, den Zwillingen, gemein!

Saint James the Elder is to have said to a young man from Hungary who pilgrimage with a request to him in Compostela: “If you want to be saved from your big distress, call St. Anna, because she is a comforter and leaves no one who trusts in her.”
With right says Fritz Klatt that the general law of vibration of assembly and disassembly of living requires that between work and new power every time a break is – a break in which
A break in which, without anything being done still the new drive lies. The creative significance of this break mainly depends on all the smallest as the biggest rhythm structures which resonates through the self of man.
Heat in the Country Spa
With the easing of stress and rush the breath is getting remarkably quiet, regular, our own size and importance be placed on a healthy, natural measure. We are happy to slip so back to our skin. To swim, to rest, to trust the mind and body to reach a state cloud high, watching the fire, and all in a barn...? The apparent misappropriation gives us something Casual, Temporary, improvised merry ... so like coming straight at a particularly welcoming place for bathing at a river or lake in the great outdoors.
( ... ) The barn is a fact of the most faithful companion of man constructed by nature. Especially the Spreewald version, so to speak, the Ur-haystack is unsurpassed in its immediacy and amazingly functional directness.
Nothing is softer than water Nothing is harder than stone , but defeats the soft water the hard stone defeated Weak Strong rigid subject moving Everyone knows no one acts accordingly truth is often like the opposite.
(…) The nest leaves us time and agian arise, it generates our provisions, equips us for every day. The fountain of youth is more than a metaphor. Because the forces of nature are used again („harness“), we are muhc better prepared for our new challenges. Natural food for a journey, however short it may be long or, refuel, regenerate, renwe – all that means nest happens in the nest. (…)
TURTLE IN OCEAN
There are rests from a very early woodcut by MC Escher: It is a boundless ocean, where, as a small island, a turtle swimming. On her just as protruding from the water tank sitting kneeling a man who looks up and almost supplicating arms and hands rising. But what he craves? He looks over the boundless waters of the ocean, like a dream, or rather like a wishful image, a rock, a mountain float on which charges a built stone castle or small town. Again, you see the tortoise than the very first incarnation of the desire of man, of life in general after a dormant and safe ground, after the hard matter to form stronger and more resistant cases, limits or even walls. Did you know that for the ancient Egyptians the great pyramids were also emblematic of those primeval mound, the first island that emerged from the waters of the world ocean?
Buddha in the Tea Pavilion "THE SAGE 8"
The "phenomenologist of the Holy", Rudolph Otto, believes that religious knowledge is based solely on the feeling and intellectually convey this reason the Holy nor leaves as in the field of the aesthetic the real Beauty. Believe is nothing you can or touch. It is based on a sense that all believers share by virtue of their conviction.
Hence it is in fact the universal fabric of this world is a very great light, which is composed of many parts and lights. SO Can reveal the pure essence of knowable things and look with a keen mind, ideal cooperate divine grace and intellect in the heart of the wise believe. Therefore calls the theologian God Father aptly the father of lights, because by himself everything emanates, it manifests in itself and through, and combines wisdom in light shine seiners and he creates matching things.
The modern landscape paint (the love for landscapes, nature) - a further step towards the knowledge and love of themselves.

He did not tell us his name. Only this much we know for sure: Once he guarded a temple. Even if he looks a bit grim, so he is still a good spirit. He wants dangers away from the place that he guarded. Let's call him simply: Wufu
The knee cast is the friend of the feet, he sends the heart Regards, and asks it to remember in the legs to draw blood.
Since the 3rd century the educated cultivated in China the lifestyle of “Feng Liu – blow away with the wind” This is a term which later became known in Japan under the name Firyu and could be simplified "elegant entertaining" paraphrased. “Feng Liu” or “Furyu” also mean to adapt the stream of life. A life of seclusion in close connection with nature led to experiences that created space for creative activity. Suiseki created, painted landscapes in the shade, pulled up miniature trees, wrote poems and essays and painted pictures or created calligraphies. Trace this unique heritage of Chinese culture, is breathtaking and fascinating.
The female element
Life and touch the life now. Find yourself in the ritual. Recognize that heaven is inside. Track the secret of mindfulness. The path of the water is the path of devotion, the self- opening and self-dealing abeyance. Water is a symbol of femininity - deeply felt in the bathroom among women. But the gender segregation at the bath is a custom that have preserved over the millennia only a few cultures. Where this rite is still alive, the bathroom not only offers space for physical and spiritual cleansing, it's the place of communication and lively exchanges. A tradition that we want to revive with life and meaning.
Looking to rename nameless

Still the angel is right
Still the angel is right, is still the earth the miracle. The angel may seem quixotic to us, but I believe that those are unworldly, blind, who see the world only as despair. The earth does not depend of nowhere, it is part of creation. That's a difference.
Objects with wabi-sabi properties can appear rough and raw. They are usually made of materials, which the proximity to the original state of nature is still clearly to be considered, which are in their natural state of rich structure and rough surface responds to touch.
Heimsuchungstafel von Peter Lautensack
The template for the panel was formed by a woodcut by Albrecht Dürer “Marienleben”. The man at the door would have to be by conventional notions Zacharias. Due to the design of its exterior with a beard, bourgeois clothes and his hat, which he holds in his hands, he is more like the image of Joseph. The main scene of the Visitation is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth. Elisabeth is said to have been pregnant at the time of the Visitation in the sixth month. In addition Elisabeth looks like going down on one´s knees before Mary.
Taking this into consideration and suggested the bent knee of the right person as genuflection and the bulging belly as the look of a pregnant woman, even the right person could be Elisabeth. Then the middle person has left the role of Maria.
The centrality of the image would suggest this. Further evidence of this are the red dress and the barely visible pattern on her collar, which is probably a pomegranate pattern.
GREEN BOTTLES – AND THEIR GHOSTS
The fairy tale says that a ghost in a bottle is a good spirit or jinn, who was defiant against higher-ranking spirits and is imprisoned as a punishment in a bottle, from which he cannot flee. He is obliged to serve every man, who opens this bottle and releases him …
All things, including the universe itself are in a continuous, never-ending state of growth and decay. Often we call random moments or points along the way as “finished” or “complete”. But when the end reaches its sense of destiny fulfilled? Is the plant complete if she is blossom and seeds? When everything becomes fertilizer? The thought of completeness has no basis in the idea of wabi sabi.
Spaces of Power
Spaces of power are not only built cathedrals and temples. There are also the “holy corners” of people these “Herrgottswinkel” old farmhouse parlors. But there are also the rituals that are part of a strong place, and even an event, as a treat, for example, a place of power may be, though situated in time and without any structural manifestation. The criterion of a place of healing power is that not only man there undergoes healing, but also Mother Earth. ... Each room - every person - every event - each group can be a place of healing power.
Tone? – Tone!
The property of sound is related to the sense of touch, and it is so circumscribed in words: hot, cold, sensual, dry, velvety and silky smooth.
Plants give us the light enveloped in Ur- mantra of the universe, and thus give us life. Only they are able to connect to the afterlife to this world. In the sacred language of the Vedas plants are called Osadhi. The word is composed of Osa ( = burning conversion) and Dhi ( = vessel). In this sense, plants are considered to be vessels for metamorphosis of cosmic fire. This fire, this love of the sky radiation is converted into the life of this world by means of the alchemy of leaf green.
Wolf-Dieter Storl: Plfanzendevas – The old goddess and her Plants
Many say the Germans show a deep devotion to the fly agaric. It was reported that Wotan, the Germanic god of ecstasy and knowledge is responsible for develop the toadstools. Through the clouds he rides along with the aftermath of the winter sun. Wherever the drool of his horse falls on the ground, nine months later there will sprout a toadstool. Once beginning to deal with the fly agaric, then suddenly he appears everywhere. He reveals incidentally, it did come to listen not only to the nature of things but chatting with the nature.
It is not just about understanding relationships rationally, but because of naturel and self-knowledge you are able to go back to forests and swamps.
THE KING OF SNAKES
The self-designed wooden chairs in the country Spa serve relaxation and recreation due to the lounger style. Each deck is looking like a “Kaupe”. These are the little hills in the Spreewald, which even in flood are showing their noses to the sun. The old Spreewald just here built their houses. A sure sign of the purpose of a height “Kaupe” were the snakes, who knew where it stays dry. For this reason, the snakes are worshiped and in the legend the snake king wears a golden crown.
That it should be possible to photograph nature spirits, I considered fantasy.
How could i capture these ethereal beings which have no physical body on film? (…). Elemental beings and nature spirits are natural energies visualized by our imagination. They are above our thinking of inside and outside, subjectively and objectively and occasionally they have their pictures taken by just ordinary Grandmothers even in their Sunday finery.
With the perception of the processed tree the structures of the wood come to the fore, which are often only visible through the treatment and processing, the smooth planing, grinding, polishing, painting or varnishing – in this way we make those things deliberately visible, you might say, to elicit the trees new secrets that they could not reveal as living beings to their original place. The spectrum of the phenomena with we encounter the wood structures way is inexhaustible.Das Spektrum der Erscheinungen, mit denen uns das Holz strukturhaft begegnet, ist unerschöpflich.
It is no coincidence that a massage is the culmination of the bathing ritual in the small heaven. Skin on Skin. The Quelve stripes off the gloves. Finally the fingertips, the stars oft he sense of touch have their grand entrance. 24 Meissner´s corpuscles alone on a square millimeter, a total of 2000 perfectly skilled receptors in each fingertip level.Even if they do not go to the most sensitive terrain of the body, it is now time to give up any resistance. No more question. Let go until the body schema melts like ice in the sun and the head is silent.
GARDEN OF ANGEL
In many cultures, condensed the image of the garden the desire for a harmonious unity of man and nature as it should have existed at the beginning of all time, and how they will be hoping for a utopian future. The Qur'an defines Paradise as the ideal image of the garden in which the air of camphor, ginger and musk scent. “Come south wind, the one who awakens the love – blow upon my garden that the scents spread” touting the praises Salomon. “Paradeisos” translated Xenophen of Athens the Persian name for fenced royal gardens. The wall is important, it borders the garden as a retreat zone from a heteronomous existence. In all civilized societies, the garden as an alternative to a chaotic and laborious daily life a promise of happiness, a refuge, in which man lives its original purpose.

The beauty has essential clarity. She enjoys the spirit as well as the feeling.
The beauty is not pleasing to the eye Beauty is to be distinguished from the agreeable, which may be a quality of the useful. The nice thing is growing essentially out of the observed object, from the visible appearance of a building.
Beauty is the proper conformity of the parts to one another and with the whole. Beauty is a transcendental peculiarity of being. In beautiful purpose of experiencing it is most precise and most meaningful fulfillment.
Without waste of resources, the best effect is achieved. The increased individuality of a form gains the character of the highest quality.
The beauty is not appropriate, but functional. And its usefulness is that it “opens”. It opened an incalculable array of experiences and actions, instead of being useful for specific purposes.” This means that the design can increase the wealth and encourage beautiful experiences and actions, while purely dedicated buildings and spaces can restrict the experience and even the use of field.
The reuse of old material relieved in the most pleasant way. What remains is pure joy fort he present, because the price was paid long before us … we enjoy the purity and time- spanning function oft he components. Our existence joy becomes the new carrying element.
As the deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul pants for you, god.
I see you in thousand pictures,
Maria expressed sweetly.
But none of all can portray you
as my soul sees you.
Since all I know
is that the world´s tumult is gone
like a dream and a nameless sweet
heaven stays in my mind.
