Some months ago, I set up as a top priority in my life to learn to be objective and always consider the big picture, instead of my personal choices or preferences. The bigger picture being, the long-term conservation, survival and well being of every person on this planet, the planet itself and other living beings on it. And for that, I had some choices to make, decisions to take. 1: understanding: myself, other people,…"Ideas 2: Justice"
I read this today: “We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much. We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not…"conspiracy"
Some time ago, I had a life-changing experience while in Japan, in this case, it was not about an event, but about a person. Sometimes I meet some people and they mention that they learned many things from or I inspired them somehow, well this time it was my turn to get inspired. Her name was Emma Crawford, and little did she know, how much she would shape my ideas and influence the processes…"Emma and Carl Sagan"
Last Australian winter I found myself walking around in Canberra with Jenny Puisto when we stumbled upon a history museum, walked in and got into a projection room. There were playing a short movie about the hippie movement in the 60’s or 70’s and Woodstock so there were some young people there and they were talking about love and peace, and the fair distribution of our planet wealth and resources. So Jenny started laughing and…"Meditation"
So my students ask how much does it costs to travel abroad and visit many countries, but there’s not really an objective answer to that question. Any country you go to you can spend a million dollars or spend no money at all, it’s up to you. And it was interesting to learn how each new generation has different goals than the previous ones. and this generation’s dream seems to be to travel around. Why…"Traveling: part 2"
Been a good boy lately, did some exercise, inspired a few people, seeded most of my torrents most of the times, but still don’t feel like I’m making any difference. I learned the words “chigeopi eopseoyo” something like “I’m unemployed” in Korean, to answer people’s questions. And I remember when I was in Japan and learned the acronym NEET (neeto) which stands for “Not in Employment, Education or Training” so I could accurately explain what…"NEET"
Due to the recent events in the US, protests, police brutality, arrests, pepper spray, etc. I found myself forced to re-analyze my own thoughts, as systematically, and objectively as I’m able to right now to see if I can understand them better. STEP 1: Where do I stand now? As for today, I’m 27 years of age and in my mind*, I can’t just justify engaging in any kind of violence, not physical nor verbal.…"Ideas 1: no-violence"
