A network of own fonts
Then, when one has woven a fixed matrix from one's own thoughts and ideas, the work creation alone should only be about stabilizing, simplifying or cleaning it up. There not everything would go well with what other people have already told us about life and the world. We should try to keep the content of it, which we have recognized as true. We do it this way so that our tasks would not be endless.
Every time has its own symbolism. This is what people perceive. A fashion of the people reflects it. There I probably completely rightly look for a given truth which also endures beyond that. Without having something for oneself, which one finds right, probably nothing good would be possible for a person in the long run. It is supposed to contain that thing, to which we refer in the life, the given in its complete extent.
There one builds on the other with us and becomes nevertheless less thereby. In this way we come to an overview of the whole. The more deeply we have realized our own cause for which we stand, the easier it is for us to assert it. There we finally move forward with great strength. What we have achieved in the process should be able to suffice at some point. We will be able to feel it in the airstream when that time comes. Many things can improve in such a way with us, because we possess thereby the entrance to a proper work.
Here on the wiki 'Beggar's Einsiedelei' or short 'Hermitage' you can have a look at a part of those texts, which meant for Mathias Schneider the beginning of writing his own text works. This page is his refuge during this period of his artistic activity. It was only made publicly accessible by Schneider a long time later, when many other wikis created by him could already be found online. In a slightly modified new version, the contents of it are now available here. He has attempted to merely freshen them up a bit and to raise their content when correcting them.
The thoughts and ideas that arose during the elaboration of it have strongly occupied him around the years from 2010 to 2012. At that time he was in a phase to which he wanted to consolidate himself as an artist. He now hopes that a reproduction of such content will contribute something good to an improved conclusiveness of understanding of his artistic work.
Those texts appearing here have already arrived at him at times full of content. They have supported and strengthened him at times of need, when he was not yet certain of many things for his existence. Perhaps you will be able to find something here that will make a reading of his page 'Hermitage' something beneficial for you. At least as an example of such moments, the writings here should be allowed to be considered, as they went along with one of his consolidation phases.
With this in mind, he now wishes you all the best and remains
With kind regards
the author Mathias Schneider
Do you find yourself
In the following text I would like to address the reader with all due respect in the 2nd person singular.
The first thing you should do here now is to ground yourself a little bit. Please don't let go again of assigning your things to each other correctly once you have managed the beginning of it.
Thereupon please stop for a moment and insist on what you have set up for yourself. If you will have finally attained the feeling to be completely there, then the work should succeed you also as well as that would be actually possible. It will show itself to you so probably what is to be done. Implement it as soon as you have acquired a clarity of what it is. I wish it to you that you want to succeed something good.
Please apply yourself sufficiently well for your work with the power given to you. First, however, please remember once again the small attunement to yourself. You should be aware of what it means for you. This should provide you with some certainty about your way.
Reflect on what you have previously assigned to yourself in terms of thoughts and ideas. The actual should be so tangible for you. Find it and recognize what is given to you. Detach yourself from everything else and now finally correspond to your impulse, as it is possible for you. Something good should be able to succeed there.
Believe in yourself. In this way, you will receive the strength to recognize the goodness of who you are.
Wake up as a human being.
Equip yourself with something suitable, as you wish to receive it. You are also someone who means well with his fellow men. Go to work, if you soon succeeded in understanding something of it. Yes, proceed to action.
Till your field finally with a right thought with it. Carry it so at you, as it occurs there just. Do not let go again from it to deal with your things correctly. In this way you will also be able to finish in time what you want to accomplish. You know that you have already achieved something for yourself in this way, which has improved yours.
It is supposed to be beautiful to be in the world. But it has also been terrible at times to be there in the world. Both will be so true, as it is written here. Such moments exist with us, to which we think such things. They condition us. There it makes us something. Everything changes in the meantime and would be hardly to be stopped.
Basically, it would be good to think about the given again and again. The thoughts and ideas opened up thereby should clarify for us the conventions of a human existence. A substance of the given comes into view thereby. This is supposed to correspond to us. There we feel ourselves, while we experience the incidents of the life.
Please familiarize yourself with yourself. So you will certainly soon be able to find out something about yourself that is true. In everyday life, refer to what you have understood about yourself. It conditions you. That should be once the heart of your things, what you thereby become aware of, while your thoughts and ideas come to you. If necessary, manage to be satisfied with what is given to you and to acknowledge it as it is for you. Yes, accept it, what truth is given to you and do not reject it without reason. It will show itself to you yet, for what it is good. Life should be a truth for itself. There it has continuance.
A personal greeting
Welcome, dear friend, to my humble abode, the 'Hermitage'. I hope very much that you bring a good mood with you and have the time and the leisure to take up something of the things of which I would like to write here. For your effort in reading the collection of texts from my pen I thank you already now.
I ask you to make yourself comfortable and also to have herbal tea, water or whatever else you need for yourself ready, so that you can spend a little while here in peace. I hope you will enjoy doing this.
Keep your calm while reading the following texts. Please do not hurry unnecessarily. It would be already necessary to read through the texts once with all given care, so that you can grasp and understand their strength, a characteristic inherent in them correctly. But there is really no need for haste and eagerness. It will surely take some time until the whole thing becomes clear to you, what I would like to tell you by means of my writing.
Please keep in mind that this is not yet a finished work. It probably has some flaws in it that I need to identify before I can fix them. I would also like to ask you to do the following. Come back here to read more often instead of trying to get it all right in one fell swoop.
Do not chafe at my work. Try it better to edify you at him. Read carefully the texts contained here and try to understand them correctly. If something of it would not be to be understood yet, then show me this please.
How did I build up the texts here before? - The 'Hermitage' was once taken in its basic substance from the 'Beggarwiki' (formerly Ferywiki), which is an unpublished collection of writings. That other wiki used to serve me for a training of my linguistic skills. With its help I have found my way of creating language. With it I was able to prepare the basic for myself. It has been in work with me from 2004 to 2011 and has taken a lot of space during this phase of my life.
I have tried to determine the content of the things of my existence with the 'Beggarwiki'. My own being soon became a little more understandable to me. Some process of the self-knowledge I have carried out at that time and have also completed sometime. Also nowadays I still experience my existence under the same aspect. I have not left my once chosen path since then. I recognize a truth like this for myself. My life is to build up on the good, which I once determined for me in the way.
The wiki 'Hermitage' is a somewhat peculiar thing. Nowadays I continue to work out my existing texts according to the principle of a 'system of naming and noting' things. They were once created during 'free-writing hours' as 'thought protocols'. For many years now I have been producing such writings. This has become my main occupation in my spare time. All the activities connected with it have sometimes been like hard work for me.
What do I believe in? - The ways of a man occur within an area given and attainable for him. His means are limited. It would be good if you could recognize that my way will also have its end one day. Therefore, I would like to soon bring order into the events of my life, so that everything will bear fruit one day.
I wish you all the best now. The sun would like to shine for you, but meanwhile also a mild shadow would remain and ensure your happiness in life.
With kind regards
I have not needed clarity at times. I also didn't need any prohibitions. Things didn't always have to be right for me.
The one has been able to be before or behind the other and yet has been so good. The one has been allowed to be next to, above or below the other and yet has remained good. There should be no rightly decreed determination of what may be. Outside of those regulations which can be derived by the laws of the state, the human being should remain free of such instructions.
Yes, the one has even been able to be detached from the other and has become true nevertheless. Everything what can be named in this way should also be good. But this would not mean that something which could not be named with this will have to be rejected.
Such a multiplicity may want to frighten people and yet it should not do so. It will elude the control by the human being, which would not need to worry us. The nature of the things is to be recognized now once in the whole alone only as whole. For this also a whole is to be represented as a whole. That I have tried to give herewith in a simple way. Let us therefore recognize it better as it is. Basically this can make so many things easier for us. This shall be the case when we have understood to express our thought in an independent way, how it can be.
Therefore, because we have remained independent of the given, we can show ourselves in our behavior free of what has occurred. But then we also get a real choice for us, what we may appreciate in our life.
The freedom will always be only a partial aspect of the given what occurs there.
History of the 'Hermitage
That collection of material in the wiki 'Hermitage' was created out of necessity during my work in my own creative workshop at prehistoric times. I struggled a lot with my existence in the years from 2008 to 2013. There I wrote down a lot of things. I have continued this way of employment afterwards. Nowadays, my work creation serves me primarily as an approach to myself as a person. I have preserved my thoughts and ideas of that time. The text work of the Wiki 'Einsiedelei' represents in many respects a key to my actual tasks and intentions, as I prepared them at that time.
I continue to deal with my writings in everyday life. Here I write down some of what I have realized about myself over time.
But sometimes some of my own impulses deceive me a little. Then I take my 'cards' to the hand and look at the whole again, in order to attain a certainty about the concerning facts. In this way I have already been able to add something to one or the other card. With the time then the Wikis developed as card index.
I confess to making a few simple assumptions when creating my writings.
The essence of nature will be of a trivial kind. It is to be named.
The essence of man will be like the essence of nature.
A good thought will have to be complemented by another good thought.
A good word will have to be completed by another good word.
The sum of things is said to be of a finite kind.
From good comes good. Everything adds up to something whole.
The language shows the way by itself.
All tangles can be explained by the disorderly course of events and can be resolved.
All errors result from a wrong application of the given and should not persist.
What is wrong will be easy to correct by reversing and readjusting it.
The wrong dissolves into arbitrariness after receiving the right knowledge and therefore falls off.
There is no justification for dominance of anything over the given.
Do something right with your time today. For once, recognize the place where you are right now and also the hour which it is now. There we begin to count at the one and remain to do our things in such a way as they correspond to us.
A principle of creation
If a piece of writing is only once well succeeded, then its further sense shows up to you of itself soon already in clear way. Then you will be able to build on the once preserved with something. There it forms a unit with the remaining work. Everything will be able to fit, if the circles have closed once completely with us. Any clarification of a fact can be applied to further things. An order has endured or it has not been.
Tasks and duties
I would now like to show you a few thoughts on the task I have determined for myself.
As the first aspect of my work it should be mentioned that I would like to improve my own text work lastingly. For this I have to learn something suitable. I would like to get used to using a uniform German for the creation of my own things, things and writings. The language has it in itself. I am only slowly beginning to grasp its grammatical structure. Those vocabulary words that I have already introduced are getting me to the point where I want to think through their orderly use now. The entire pages of my card index 'construction kit' are to be transferred into a suitable format. Their basic structure, in particular a sequence of the texts should be preserved as far as possible as it is given.
I would like to preserve the already existing thoughts and ideas, but also their structural appearance with it for the coming future as they are. The functional character of my writings is to be preserved. Due to the fact that I have already created the basic outlines of the corresponding texts, I now have a whole fund of my own work at my disposal from which I can draw. There I should be able to prepare myself for something further, which could be built on it. Also the stock of own writings wants to be secured. The quality of a reading of those texts will make a good part of their value for a readership. So it is to be taken equally importantly by me and to be secured.
That part of the world of thoughts and ideas of me which is present in the 'construction kit' still reflects this in a somewhat idiosyncratic way at times. The correct form for it is to be determined once. The thereby determined shall then be my guideline, so that they can be meaningfully expanded. I want to do this in order to come to suitable statements about my existence. To the writings produced in such a way then the explanation to the work show is to be added easily. The description of further characteristics of what makes me, should be coordinated by me and should join conclusively to what is already given. I would like to pay attention thereby to the fact that the contents, linguistically seen, are easy to convey.
All this has helped me a lot in my life. When I was working on the card index, it sometimes happened that actual powers from earlier days of my life opened up again. I gladly allowed and accepted such beautiful moments.
There I weave some of it into the existing text work, because it has relevance for me. Those associated impulses in me have already revived me somewhat. There also my world of thoughts rejuvenates itself somewhat. I perceive what I experience in the process and can accommodate it in my work.
Exactly that should be written down by me, which also really arose with me at thoughts and ideas. I am aligned to that. I would like to recognize what appears with me. That will be nevertheless already so correct, as it is given. I correspond to that. In such a way I carry out my work creation.
As a second aspect of the production of own writings I would like to point it out to you now that I confess myself in the work to my Christian faith, where this seems to me to do necessary. However, this has not to be done in excess.
As the third aspect of the show of works will have to be explained that I want to maintain a certain closeness to the things destined for me. I try it to preserve in the way an insight into the reasons of my existence. Those incidents and occurrences connected with it should be recognized by me as they happened.
I have arranged it with the creation of the 'construction kit' in such a way that I correspond to that previous starting point of me also furthermore. That is why I say that I walk an unabbreviated way. Such an approach protects from oppression.
The introduction of additional words into the text of the card index 'Construction kit' is prepared thanks to the creation of a reference possible for it. Thus, it has become true in the meantime that quite a few additions to it have already been realized. Instead of shortening the writings by remaining parts of bad kind in careless simplicity, Schneider as an author set out to put them finally into the right light. There they have alone only rarely disturbed the remaining system from designations and views. On the contrary, it is said to be true that some facts have appeared right only after a cancellation of actual misjudgements. The bad will be then something good, if it may be named also so. There it should appear exactly and also not be represented in wrong way. To renounce such exaggerations shall be good. What has occurred has also its share in the event. There it would be fatal to pass it over.
A literary event
A thought arisen with me is to be a thought to be utilized. Therefore I allow such a thought. I recognize it. That's what I do, even if it may have seemed questionable to me at first.
Thus I reach a basic state of thinking in a very simple way. I accept the given because it is true and recognize it thereby as a default for me that I want to deal with it. There I immediately keep my further thoughts and ideas about it.
Some of it I pick up when writing on the 'construction kit' and present it conscientiously. Then, when I have an opportunity and the desire to put it in my writings, I usually do.
Control over what is given to you will be well realized just by slowing down how you work and pausing in the process.
A first start
There is no bad word, but only more or less bad uses of words. Building up on the thought I carry out my writings. Thereby I cultivate little by little more and more different words into them. Decisive for the value of it will be the connections, which I create and receive in such a way. There the things appear as a picture. It has such qualities as I give it. It should be now exactly those of it, which characterize and constitute my life, around which it concerns me. Their display takes place for personal reasons. To name such is possible. I see no reason why this should not be done. Many things have already been said about me in the past. There people have fixed and decreed a lot of things, which have had a violent effect on me. I would like to counter this with my own work.
There I do not claim it at all that the people have misjudged me or my life happiness. It has only not been possible for them alone to grasp it correctly. They hardly knew me, but they said and wrote down many things about my situation. For this purpose, files have been created that have given a framework to my life's journey. The framework that has been provided for me has made my happiness in life almost impossible. What remained for me was unworthy and unattractive. I did not want to leave it like that.
I started from simple assumptions when I began to fix the things of my existence linguistically. What came over me there, I have not been able to ward off. That has surprised me. According to my feeling, I found myself in a predicament. It was not at all to be fixed on external events. I went into myself and brought out what it was. Many things have finally appeared before me. However, I hardly knew what to do with it.
So at some point I moved on to freeing life from me. I wanted to dissolve my entanglements. I did that primarily by naming the incidents, later also the circumstances. There the first transformation of the existing has already taken place with me. What has changed through this have been the beginnings of a determination of the real. By preserving what has been mine, I have been able to prove myself better. Soon the true facts of my existence shone through the events of my life and could be recognized. I have fixed them afterwards, whenever they have appeared. For this I have accepted it that the true essence of the things is both empty and trivial. Only the human being starts something with them, whereupon they are finally charged. There the situations fulfill themselves and arise. Everything exists in the way.
So I recognized the good at the trivial and assumed its existence as an actual emptiness. True to this pattern, all things receive their basic structure. The emptiness will therefore be to be understood correctly as the content or the content of the trivial. There it can be read from the occurrences, how they have arisen. As actual constructions and substantial enrichments of the basic forms of an appearance of the world they will occur. So they are to be evaluated. There one can weight it whether they have turned out good or bad.
Starting from the simple realization of an insufficient condition of my things, I have seen the value for them also in the same way. There it has seemed bad to me what has made up my life at that time. It took a long time until something changed in this respect. Some of it has been intertwined many times and therefore has taken an actually unsolvable form. In addition, it has been 'caked', the actual cords of this structure have stuck together or have been fused together. There I have also accepted it in such a way. That's how it has appeared to me. With the designation 'glued' thought world I have developed an idea of it, which occurs with me at difficulties and is given for me. I have left it like that. True to the approach of preservation of the given, I accepted what I found and tried to prove myself to such a thing. There are certainly easier tasks than this. But whatever tasks life has set for us, we can stand alone only if we have done justice to them. So this was the starting point for the preparation of the things of my life at that time.
Then I have brought out something of it. That I have named, but it also recognized thereby how burdensome it will be to expect to be understood with it by other people correctly. Therefore I have gone over to mentioning in addition to a designation of the given my work show, thus my active enterprise and to integrate it into the texts from my pen. A reference to it has embodied the first of all trivial references to my life. There I presented myself as a creator of art. To avoid giving it the wrong spice in the first place, I declared myself an 'art-trash' activist. This made a lot of things easier for me than before.
The principle of the feasible action
The positive will be the moment to which a person wants to act. There he has it well if he knows to recognize the things belonging to such a moment. That makes up his ability, what he has recognized, and it must also be enough for him. That is why he sometimes acts in such a way, so that he would not lose his 'thread'. That secures his respective fortune for him. There he keeps his access to his power. It offers him besides an orientation also the opportunity to do something in a way suitable for the matter. This is how his own being appears to him, this is how he commits himself to things. Many a happiness is made up of this. Something becomes true through it.
In fourfold way the simple action of the man appears or it has no continuance. One can fix it there, how it occurs. One can even abstract it. Thereby one puts oneself into another situation. From it one can clarify the general of an action. It will have to be named, what constitutes it.
In the following, I now give the four parts of the aspect of an action through my own words for their knowledge.
An action is done in a simple way and brings about something simple. (This is according to the pious desire of the doer).
An action is reflected in the given material at any time. Consequently, the designs also have a double effect. (A design of the objects leads also to an imprint on the human being. )
A manifestation reflects itself at any time at its manufacturer. There the effected also has a twofold effect. (The quality of the person is remembered by the objects and makes a value).
All this is not to embody any difficulty. We have merely verbalized it to ourselves, which occurs anyway at every time. There nothing has happened further than an extension of the conception of what constitutes the things. Their cognition corresponds to the nature. Since the human being recognizes it, what is there, he has also the right to speak of it, what he has recognized. Thus one makes a possession of it. Such a possession can be recognized in life as a default for oneself. With its help we form a reason in ourselves. We need such a reason. But he who does not want to grant to man that he can be reasonable, is wrong with everything. He will be wound up crookedly. We defend ourselves against this. We do not want to be misunderstood. Even if we have kept silent, we have not given people the right to condemn us in such a serious way.
That's when we pacify the situation by returning to the starting position. In doing so, we strive towards a positive moment. To do this, we first free ourselves from all the fillings that have nothing to do with us. Their essence has not been beneficial for us at all times.
If we have finally found the emptiness of the occurrences true to their true appearance as trivial occurrences, then it should be possible that an acceptance of the given is easy for us. There we receive it as a rule soon, what is to be fixed as order. To this we would like to tie up with our belief that everything is rightly so as it occurs.
Goodness is built on goodness. From true comes true. Thus, all things embody that which constitutes their essence. In addition to it only distractions occur alone. They have all represented for a desired and looked for thing the extent of a not necessary occurrence. There they are alone only rarely needed by us.
A good job
No matter what kind of work we human beings do, something is fulfilled in us through it. That is to be fair to the essence of a thing, what becomes true through it. From it we have something that we have resigned ourselves to the fact that our task co-determines our existence as a human being. We go our way.
Basically, we receive something through the fact that we have worked. It would not only be the income necessary to provide for ourselves that we would thus receive. We have also experienced what it means to have access to a social structure and to be integrated into it.
There the kind of the activity is to be exchangeable. What has not been interchangeable, however, are the personal achievements that have gone along with it.
