Unburdening the Macho

We added a new introduction to the original blog you'll find below, in order to make it make more sense if you got here from our latest newsletter. We chose the wrong role model in building the world. The "king of beasts", lions, was a bad idea. So the colorful, charismatic, wealthy, high earning, loudest, … Continue reading Unburdening the Macho

I sleep outdoors and do Yoga to just be

When I see the 9,096 visible stars under the background symphony of the jungle noises, or when I contemplate the 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms (wow!) in each breath reaching the 40 trillion cells and many more molecules of my stretching body, as I savour a ripe mango, as I float in the Gulf of Thailand listening to … Continue reading I sleep outdoors and do Yoga to just be

Modern science has vastly proven the ancient Yogic … Continue reading Nutrition – 1st of 5 Pillars of Yoga

If you are kind only to the ones who are kind to you, and bad to the ones who 'deserve it', you will probably feel bad yourself sooner or later, and you'll lose yourself in right and wrong, principals and judgment. To be what we are is independent of whom we are with when we reach our … Continue reading See what you have been taught to be and think
