Welcome! My name is Beat (pronounced B@). The voice behind Schindler’s Word, my basic message is of love, freedom — the freedom of self-development — and response-ability, and I’d like to give you a clearer picture of what that is about.
100,000 times today
Over a hundred thousand times today on the interweb, someone will share a story, idea, or opinion with the rest of the world. Some of those sharers will be famous but most will be people you and I have never heard about, yet each one has a chance to influence others and maybe even start a movement.
At Schindler’s Word, the ambition is to help readers deepen their understanding of the worlds within and without by providing a fresh perspective on what everybody already knows like the inside of their pockets. What we pay the bulk of our attention to explains the difference between division and unity, between them and us, between serenity and despair, and between wanting to _____ (fill in the blank) and having to _____ (fill in the blank).
We are the most informed specie ever, however, we might also be the most confused specie ever at the same time. Everybody knows, more of the same will be just that, and that if nothing changes, the chances of the children to end up less confused than their parents are a million to zero.
There is no need to learn anything new, rethink the old, or question what is.
Schindler’s Word is creating and sharing content that is unique, down to Earth, and instantly actionable for everyone with an open mind. Six years in the making, Schindler’s Word is just getting started. As a subscriber, you are critical to its mission.

A fresh perspective on what everybody knows
Everybody knows the world is a word, which explains why it means very different things to different people. For some, the world means nothing, or it means flat, or round, or small, of course, not depending on the world, but depending on who is using the word.
I think we accept that because we love to believe words describe the world. But how often is that true?
What have words got to do with it?
What have words got to do with it? All kinds of things are being said, depending on who is saying them. And what to believe remains what it’s always been, a question of character and personal preference, to each their own.
This is no different, except Schindlersword, 6 years in the making, is backed up by 10,000 hours of research, doubt, and certainty.
Words are not taught at school
I know, no-one likes to be told they are wrong, or they will stop listening to you. If you’re still with me, on that I give you my word, I understand and respect why that is. Nevertheless, the above headline is worth reading twice: Words aren’t taught at school.
If my experience is anything to go by, you find this hard to believe. It took me years of doubt, research, then of more doubt and more research, until I could both see and believe I’m not the only one.
“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school.” – Plato
“When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all.” — Paul Simon
To name a few. By now, I’ve made it a habit to know my words well before I hit publish and all about the affirmations made here will be revealed, no barrels hold, at Schindlersword.
The heart of the matter
The heart of the matter is in the beginning is the word. I am no-one to create a different opinion. The only story always missing from the stories told at school is the story of words. It is by design, a fact, wrong, and I want it changed.

This is why I think you should subscribe to Schindlersword.
It hasn’t always been easy
It hasn’t always been easy. In 2012, I had come to the end of my line, the prospects looked bleak and my future dark. However, that wasn’t the worst part. The worst part was I didn’t understand why. Why me?
When your only options are get over it or be capsized, you work hard to gain a new perspective on what is. It took me years, the breakthrough finally happened in 2016, and here to report it is worth every calorie and minute.
On a dark and rainy night in 2012, caught up in the 2008 financial crisis and broke to the bone, I got kicked out of my home with my world in a suitcase, a backpack, and a blue IKEA-shoulder bag. Hardly a day goes by when I don’t see how far I’ve come, however I remember as if it were yesterday, the moment I saw words for the first time, back in 2016.
More than anyone can handle
In a cosmic heartbeat, we’ve gone from wishing for information to drowning in it. There are many who believe there is no information left to believe in, and for the children, the truth is just another fairy tale.
Faced with uncertainties about what tomorrow might bring, this is an agonizing time for billions of people all over the world.
At a time like this, you need people who unite and help, as opposed to divide and exploit.
B@’s perspective is unlike anything I’ve ever done. I’ll be sharing and teaching the breakthrough I prayed for, but that is beyond anything I could have prayed for or predicted. I’m confident it will help you in your personal and professional lives. You’ll learn how to find peace and adventure in a world you don’t agree with and may not even like, the benefits of which can be known only after the fact.
I don’t believe working for peace is inconsistent with having the adventure of your life. Thick as a brick with a tender heart, I have encountered my fair share of setbacks and events that genuinely hurt.
Because there is precious little our hearts cannot do, they may be dancing, trembling, aching, pounding, torn, or breaking. However, when they are just beating away quietly, doing their job, then we tend to ignore them or take them for granted, don’t we? Years of research have led me to conclude we respond to words in similar ways.
Nevertheless, the heart of the matter is that words, not hearts, are why we are here and the wordless aren’t.
What you’ll find at Schindlersword is a fair exchange. And if you believe small groups of crazy people do not only create the world, but it’s the only thing that ever has…
- The world of words is still full of secrets.
- Behind every horizon… but you know that stuff.
- Without humor, we all go insane.
- It’s hard to write on an empty stomach. Your subscription will make a difference.
- Let’s do it for the children.

If you’re looking to cement more of the same old, then, my friend, Schindlersword is where you risk falling in love with less and with the idea of words taught at school. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
