The Encirclement of Fear

7/26/2018
More
Fear seems to be dominant, from the collective level to the deepest individual. Its "tentacles" appear everywhere, from emotional relationships to the labor market. Its consequences seem to be directly reflected in how we behave, how we make decisions and how we live. What I am debating is how much this is justified. I am concerned that we allow his influence on us and I understand that we can defend ourselves, while at the same time, we can also understand the reasons that is caused and...

The Extreme Distortion of Reality by Popular Media

7/19/2018
More
I am wondering what most people consider as being informed if not to learn like parrots just the information provided by the big news agencies? Especially with today's technology people being connected to the internet for the most part of the day, it's easier to learn the news by heart. How can one think he has a real perception of reality when his knowledge is limited to what the few specific networks that have the most resources show him? What kind of thinking do people think they have...

Why You Shouldn't Pursue Happiness

7/12/2018
More
What does it mean to pursue happiness? First of all, indeed, it doesn't make sense to not look for beautiful feelings. But the fact that we are chasing something doesn't also show something about our attitude towards our present situation? Isn't it sometimes causing us to deny the present moment and be looking at a vague future? I believe life can become much more harmonious if we start managing events differently, if we understand how much we are affected by labels we have subconsciously...

Self-Realisation Naturally Fights Depression

7/5/2018
More
While the incidents of diagnosed depression are growing rapidly in the western world, the usual practices of immediate drug-type solutions seem to be unable to provide the solution. As much as victims and therapists prefer them, they just hide the problem under the surface instead of curing it, which actually makes the situation worse. So I think it is necessary to approach the problem with less direct but more radical methods - where possible - and what I'm doing in this podcast is to try...

Close Your Eyes for a Second and Do the Jump, on the Other Side Your Brighter World Awaits You

6/28/2018
More
In this article, I find that either because of financial crisis or other reasons many young people are confined to environments with older people who, while supposed to be there to help them, they actually drag them down. It is often difficult to get away from that as these people have been there since the time they first remember themselves and they may not be able to imagine their life differently. However, through my own experience, I have found that a radical change of life is crucial...

Hoi An in Vietnam, the Paradise for a Western Expatriate

6/22/2018
More
What if we take a look at the fast-growing country for more than 15 years (> 6%), Vietnam with the amazing weather for the most part of the year, the wonderful landscapes, the marvelous food and the friendly people? Last January I traveled in Vietnam for almost a month from the south to the north and I became impressed by its infrastructure. In Podcast, I'm looking at how it would be possible for someone to move there for a while. But because life is not just what it looks like in tourist...

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

5/18/2018
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”

5/1/2018

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...

4/29/2018

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...
