October 2nd was Gandhi's birthday. It’s a lovely day celebrated by yogis and many others to remember the man who personifies Ahimsa, which means non-violence (Sanskrit, from a ‘non-, without’ + hiṃsā ‘violence’). Ghandi realized that in force and violence we all lose. He asked his followers to deal with their anger through prayer and … Continue reading Is This Health Care?

Not Conspiracy, Just A Classical Daddy Issue
If you see the Corona fraud as a conspiracy or business as usual, is semantics. From both perspectives those committing "the fraud" think they are in their right to do so. I see it as what I call a classical "Daddy Issue". It arises, when we are surprised and realize Daddy doesn't have our best … Continue reading Not Conspiracy, Just A Classical Daddy Issue
Wounds Lead to Entitlement or Healing?
To be healthy is fundamentally also to be happy, whatever that means for each of us, or if not happy, at least to acknowledge and even embrace the unhappiness. The donkey EEyore in Whinny the Pooh embraces his sadness and it's his way of being, so it's his "happy". I would see myself in that … Continue reading Wounds Lead to Entitlement or Healing?
A Ferocious Suffering
A hidden and ferocious type of suffering is a mental or physical pain that is stigmatized. It differs from any other pain in that it's not socially accepted to talk about, or feel. The person is left alone with the pain and the resulting self judgment. The feelings are most particularly associated with those we … Continue reading A Ferocious Suffering
Soul Detox and Walking

One person came to terms with the fact that she felt entitled to a much better life than she had - she wanted more. More money, more time, better friends, nicer husband... 🤔Dismantling the … Continue reading Soul Detox and Walking
Mental Health – the best treatment
The best treatment for mental health is fundamentally based on respecting that the mind is not separate from the body, and that the brain is an organ like any other organ and as such it needs care, nurture and at least respect. When we see this month's posts on mental health awareness surprisingly few talk … Continue reading Mental Health – the best treatment
Poor Kavanaugh, He Was Bullied to Do It
If the #MeToo movement changed the world in any way it was that it created listeners. It was finally time to listen. The abused who finally spoke up may have told someone previously, or tried to, but probably hadn't gotten enough support to make a difference, or change anything. Out of 700 rapes one year … Continue reading Poor Kavanaugh, He Was Bullied to Do It
Seek quality not quantity
Being healthy is about quality as opposed to quantity. Quantity is unhealthy, quality is healthy. Now that sounds really weird coming from us living outdoors, eating rice and beans, sleeping in tents and riding scooters. There is nothing expensive with that lifestyle. That's the whole point. Quality has nothing to do with money or brand. … Continue reading Seek quality not quantity
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
