I am foolish, 20 march 22 at 5.55am, i meditated on this for 2 hours, i concluded - I am. words spoken- you are foolish, but the feeling i felt -was, i love you !
what are you doing for the world ??? how have we/you been useful to the people around us.
spoke to my uncle recently in 2018, after I asked him the question has he been useful in his life . he said his life has been a waste, he was humble and maybe wise enough to say , this was my uncle/dad who was immobile and in his 80's.
it made me think, have I been useful !
into meditation, yoga and reading, and yes my daughter switches off when i start speaking about these subjects .
24 months ago i got rid of my car, as did not want to be sitting in a metal box any longer. i now try to cycle everywhere.. i am a eco-friendly estate agent. ha ha
last 2 years been sleeping on the conservatory floor or living room floor, with a few duvets in between me and the floor - i see bed mattress as a kinda artificial structure , stopping the vibration from planet earth reaching you.. all the things/ people think they need.
sleep in the garden when weather ok. and yes i like the outdoors.
I have 1 beautiful daughter that lives in Reading .
house is meat and drink free. prefer a plant based diet.
like open spaces and trees.
like to be eco friendly, and walk, train or bus where can. why pollute the environment when not needed.
why is a lot of life like a business exchange, what I can take or what you can give !! it is nice to give without wanting or needing anything in return . Love and beauty have we all forgot these 2 words ....
19 may 2021, share home with One Artist -Angolan Portuguese man, we have art room across the road in our office.
xmas is a time where people make the effort to be happy. i find it easier to be depressed.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
believe in universal manhood, to break down world barriers.
also found it fun- connecting with people from round the world. my sense of humour is very sarcastic -English- so apologies in advance if I offend ( actually thinking about it- I am not sorry for my sense of humour ) life is too short !!!
try to go church 3 times a week, then to the quaker meetings. i connect with people's energy .
walking ,reading, meditation and yoga ..world issues on climate change, and looking after planet earth which is our home
- farming organic
- vedic philosophy
- arya samaj
- about nothing
Music, Movies, and Books
rig veda, anything deep and with meaning. old indian music from sixties and seventies.
indian and uk classical music, but all music has a time and place
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
leave it to other people to judge, but living in india -alone for 3 months , changed my whole perspective to life !
Teach, Learn, Share
meditation, yoga and vedic philosophy. i known a lot about nothing, which is always a good start... been to italy few times to Milan , and did a few classes to Italians to teach them meditation and yoga, 2 classes to adults and one to children. also a class in chambery -france surrounded by the French alps in someone's apartment - living rooms are the best location....
the children are our future ..
What I Can Share with Hosts
india, meditation yoga , and plant based diet .
that we all are the same apart from about 15% variables,
last 10 years the family I have lived with on a long term basis i.e more than 2 months, and some for more than a year- at a time, is a Bulgarian, Finnish, German, Turkish, Romanian, Slovakian, Czech, Iranian, Indian, proper English people ( as I am not ) and a American . as well as saving me a fortune in airline tickets, i studied them all carefully- I am very glad we are not all the same- how boring. my conclusion, do not take yourselves too seriously...its not worth it !
laugh more and it is okay to cry sometimes ...male ego- I am trying to be more free
