About Me

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 issues on climate change, and looking after planet earth which is our home

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
