Picking plastic is healthy

Most people catch up sitting down. They drive to the gym to get some exercise and if there is still time they do social media to sign a petition for some authority to make us (including themselves) stop wasting life on earth (including our own). Why not combine it all, save time and make us … Continue reading Picking plastic is healthy

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

Meditation – the 5th pillar in Yoga

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

Today it snowed flowers on me, and I remembered all the times it snowed snow on me when I was growing up in northern Ohio, where for seven months a year the sun would disappear behind a smear of gray as far as one could breathe, which was not very far. When it snowed flowers … Continue reading the eternal snow-flower storm
