Daedalus’ Escape from his Labyrinth and the Wisdom of the Spontaneous Action

6/13/2018
More
In this article I am doing a decompilation of this particular Greek myth. How can it compare to the way we face life in relation to our needs and aspirations? What role do the latter play in our relationship with the mystery of life and how do we act on them? How real is ultimately what we perceive as future, and don't we sometimes overdo it and do not give value to the present moment? And if we contemplate on it, all these present moments are the ones that will eventually lead us to...

The Unbearable Lightness of Being “Weird”

6/6/2018
More
I am wondering what is considered normal by most if not what the majority considers normal? At the same time do we personally believe that what most people say is always right? Would we not, therefore, need to think that perhaps we have to make a conscious choice between whether we want to agree with most or whether it leaves us unaffected to be considered "weird?" Then the other side behind the curtain appears, the bright one, where life becomes simpler, more authentic and way more...

Beyond Left Brain Thinking and the Formation of Our Worldview

5/31/2018
More
I think my generation has been nurtured in linear logic and in great loyalty only on something that proves to be demonstrable. Through my own experience, I have seen how restrictive this is for our horizons, for our quality of life and understanding. At the same time, because I think most of the information we receive is controlled, I can see that this trend is not accidental. This is of immense importance as the way we perceive our worldview directly affects every aspect of life! As a...

The Essence of Comprehension and How It Reflects on Self-Esteem

5/28/2018
More
Almost every Greek, till at least my generation, has been brought up with the archetype of the resourceful Ulysses. He was the one came up with the smart idea of the Trojan Horse that gave the Greeks the opportunity to enter the caste of Troy. He, also, managed after 10 years to return from Troy to Ithaca after roaming in several kinds of places, usually facing different types of adventures. But Ulysses was resourceful and was always figuring out a way in order to manage to reach his...

Politics and Freedom of Mind in an Airbnb in Paris

5/23/2018
More
I roam around many places in Europe and talk to people but everywhere I hear similar ideas that are very close to what I read in the big news agencies. And I find that very often people because they get used to some ideas take them for granted without questioning if they actually describe reality. Politics could not be outside of it because the propaganda game at this level seems to be genius. An example of my observations was a discussion I had with the AirBnb owner to whose house I was...

With What Mentality to Approach the Meditation Practice

5/19/2018
More
Meditation is a well-known practice, while basic methods are really very simple. Many times, however, people do not dedicate themselves in the long run, as they would like, or they feel they are not getting the benefits they expected. Through my own experiences in the few years of my practice, I have understood that meditation needs to be approached from the very beginning in a different way from what we are used to facing something new that we put into our lives. This approach was...

In today's article I'm talking about Arnold Ehret, a personality very influential to Steve Jobs among others.

4th of 10 Days of my Water Fasting: My “Whys”

5/2/2018

A small diary about my 10 days of consuming nothing but water together with some relevant thoughts about it. Every new beginning, every change literally everything we do I firmly believe has to first and foremost start from the "Whys." These reasons not only need to be crystal clear and set in our minds even before the beginning but is demanded to be our individual reasons. Not to try to imitate someone, not to try to prove something and so on. Instead they must be based on what we really...

2nd of 10 days of my Water Fasting: Why Eating Frequently is Often an Addiction

4/30/2018

A diary about my 10 days of water fasting together with some relevant thoughts about it. This time I talk about the misunderstandings in nowadays' societies that we aren't able to survive without frequent meals. We don't seem to consider at all what is the role of the storage of fats in our bodies. As well the addictive effects that several toxins induced in foods create together with certain carbohydrates. Same like a smoker, craving a substance doesn't necessarily mean that we cannot...

An Alternate Approach to Learning (that we already know)

4/27/2018

How do we usually learn if not through information from authorities? I wonder, do we really get real knowledge then? In whatever you learn, have you ever included your individual approach? Do you remember how you used to learn when you were a child? I mention here many of the thoughts I have gathered trough the years together with an example that I think can make the concept more easily understood.

A Valuable Lesson of Friendship on the Shores of the Rives Ganges

As you travel especially to countries of a different culture from the West, experiences will inevitably be unique. At the same time, the personal experience differentiates so much the image we have probably acquired from the media. What can we be taught by people of such a different but less comfortable world? How interesting is it when you can honestly connect with them? Personally, every time I visit such a special country I leave with full gratitude and the little story I am describing...

How to Prepare for Something that Stresses You

4/21/2018

When the time for something critical to us approaches, in example an interview, or a test, and so on, we are usually quite anxious. At the same time, we seem to think deeply that the more we think about it, the more likely we are going to go well. But we often neglect to take into account that it is most important to have a clear mind at that time. So how could we differentiate our approach by making our lives easier as well us more efficient and authentic? As a Token of Appreciation, you...

Making your Own Choices

4/16/2018
More
How do we make decisions about us? It usually appears that we are too much affected us by the impression that we may leave to others even if we do not recognize it or want to admit it. Many times we even reach a point where we are fully dependent on what is "considered" to be good. Personally, I doubt that this way we can reach a relatively satisfying life. Should not we also have to take into account facts about our own course? How could we then approach each of our decisions so that we...

Being Released from What You Have Been Calling Reality

3/30/2018
More
Normally we have been used to consider as reality what our senses recognise or other instruments that are made obviously by the human senses. But can this for sure provide us enough information in order to understand and explain reality? I think we should reconsider that as even science has proved the limitations that arise from that perspective. Thus this is a crucial issue for me and I couldn't miss talking about how the 3dimensional world is simply an illusion. As a Token of...

Everything flows and only our senses perceive stagnation. This seems to drift and distort our reality. How much we ignore it and what incredible effects this has in countless aspects? How different can our relationship be with life when we begin to observe the flow everywhere around us? How much more harmonious can our coexistence with others be when we start and apply a deeper understanding of this principle?

Nature the Ultimate Mentor

We are part of her, and yet we say she belong to us. She's generous, but we've made everything measurable. She could be next to us but we were gone. She contains the highest mystery, but we do not admire it. Rich in teachings, but we ignore them. Does the most contact with her change us and our culture through us?
