We have only one WORLD yet! If we destroy it, where else can we go to?

Babur ALBAYRAK: "He was beyond their understanding."

Ruler and the conqueror of the universe born in spring of 237 B.U (Before Universe) you calculate how old I am. Moreover, I do not know which planet I came from. One thing is certain that not from the one I am on right now. Started to write with a laptop found in a dustbin while he was a bum for the last 300 years.

Jelaluddin Rumi 

Love to hate and hate to love; controversy and electronic dreams, controversy, mad production of the capitalist world he was born into. Justice for all or just-ice for your drink on the house, love is not stronger then pride and "nothing is true but everything is permitted". Sometimes sad and unhappy although always with a smile. The make up maybe flaking but the smile still stays on.

Thinks and speaks by being whole hearted. I was reborn with a message on a pamphlet of a CD. Here it goes:

I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there; I went to the Temple of the Hindus and the old pagodas, but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere.


I searched on the mountains and in the valleys but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him. I went to Caaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers but He was beyond their understanding.

I then looked into my heart and it was there where he dwelled that I saw Him; He was nowhere else to be found.

I was born in 1972 and raised in Istanbul, Turkey and moved to United States in 1992. My mother tongue is supposed to be Turkish but somehow I am better in expressing myself in English. I studied all kinds of majors at different universities in the east coast. A big time traveler but limited with the Western world only. The east began to call for me after witnessing the historical changes that changed all our lives as westerners. The spiritual and energy studies are the last stop after searching for answers although it is hard to define the question. The motivation during my yoga meditations and spiritual matters began when a good friend told me these lines: "Think about a car passing by your street. If you are on the first floor, the timing of the car will have three different time frames. The car coming along has past time, present time, and a future time. However, if you are on the top floor there is only one that is the present time."

 I am always at the present and live the moment by enjoying it very much. The past is out of order and the future has not got any meaning if you cannot live the present. Therefore, I write and write...

I usually write fiction stories and make researches accordingly among the oldest phlisophical matters and phenomenons. I currently reside in Istanbul. I went to college in Boston, and lived all over states for the past six years Then I got lost in a few places in South America. I studied almost about everything from Architecture, History of arts, Engineering to International business. So every piece of education became a whole and I was made out of all those pieces.

One day I became and I am still trying to find out what I became. There is a saying, it goes like this: Do not ask yourself what I became, but ask yourself what will I become?
