Be here. Now.

What is up, people?

Have you heard about the present moment? It is the best place where you can possibly be. If you are living right here, now, consciously and with awareness, you are rich.
Don’t anticipate and don’t cling onto things from the past. Let the past go, with  forgiveness and let the future go with no anticipation and no expectations.  Who do you think you are? I believe we are souls, wearing a human body, having a human experience. We are here on this earth to grow ourselves, do acts of kindness and help each other, no matter what.

Everything is connected and everything happens for a reason. The people you meet, the things that are happening to you, the cat down the road, everything.
We have a creative power deep within us, but the way we were raised and conditioned to live in today’s society has caused us to forget. Life is a game and if you don’t wake yourself up, you will be forever playing on the lower levels. How do you escape?

Hit the books,develop critical thinking and start being present.

On the surface its seems like the present moment is only one of many moments. Each day of your life appears to consist of thousands of moments where different things happen. Yet if you look more deeply is it not only one moment ever? Is life ever not this moment ? This one moment is the only thing you can never escape from. The one constant factor in your life. No matter what happens, no matter how much your life changes. One thing is certain, it’s always now. Since there is no escape from the now, why not welcome it? Become friendly with it? When you make friends with your present moment you feel home, no matter where you are. If you don’t feel home in the now, no matter where you go you will carry unease with you.  The present moment is as it is. Always. Can you let it be? The division of life into past, present and future is manmade. Time is a social construct. It’s an illusion. Do you think time exists in nature? Do you think the flower looks at its hand watch and says to itself – “Oh look it’s almost 07:00 am i should blossom”


Mental abstraction, the past can only be remembered now. What you remember is an event that took place in the now and you remember it now. The future,when it comes is the now, so the only thing that is real, the only thing that ever is, is the now.
Acknowledge the present moment, honor it. When the now is your primary focus of your life, your life unfolds with ease. Washing the dishes, studying for an exam, talking with a mind-boggling professor, planning a trip. What is more important the doing or the result that you want to achieve through the doing? This moment or some future moment? Do you treat this moment as if it were an obstacle to overcome? Do you wait for the future to bring good moments?  If you are not living in the now, the future brings discomfort and tension. Let me explain myself with an example. You have an exam next week, a very important one.
What is going on in your mind? “Am i going to take it?” “What if i fail?” “What if my mind stops and I don’t write anything”?  All sorts of these kind of questions. You stress without a reason, and bring low-frequency vibes to your life.

Feel the aliveness within your body, that anchors you into the now.
Ultimately you are not taking responsibility for your life, until you take responsibility this moment, now. Now is the only place where life can be found. Taking responsibility for this moment, means not to impose or argue with what is. It means to be in alignment with life.
To accept things as they are.

A simple but radical spiritual practice is to accept whatever arises into the now, within and without. Never carry on tension from the past. It is gone. It does not exist. No room for trouble making, just this moment as it is. The moment you enter the now with your attention, you realise that life is sacred. The more you live into the now, the more you feel the simple, yet profound joy of being and the sacredness of all life. The present moment is deeper that what happens in it. It is the space in which it happens. The Now is deeper that any content that arrises in it. When you tap into the now you step out of your content of your mind. Excessive thinking slows down, and thoughts don’t draw you into daydreaming. Gaps arise in between thoughts.
Stillness, you begin to realise how much vaster and deeper you are than your thoughts. You are not your mind.


In conclusion i will leave you with a book on the topic:

The power of now

Can learning be fun?

It was not so long ago when I was playing with Lego. Hours and ours, again and again the blocks were falling and I was putting them back again. Some times with friends, sometimes alone. But I hated when they fall and I am almost at the top…

But I’ve learned a lesson. It’s always that setback that makes you dabble to proceed or to quit. So often it happens to me. But when you have a clear set of boundaries it’s easier to make yourself go on. An that’s what we are aiming for, right?

Learning is not only in school, or in college. It’s everywhere else too. And perhaps outside collage and school is more important. Street life and off the grid life is a personality shaping experience. I imagine it to be like a experimentation field for homework, in school of life. But nevertheless our social status – student is giving us the time to do so. Which give us this opportunity to shape ourselves the way we want. It’s a very important habit to keep that grit to learning.


Nothing but conventional. This is the essence of meta learning. All these alternative ways to remember things are studied and presented in its model form. They make your studying habits better in a way, you tend to learn quicker and faster. You are learning how to learn. Why is that necessary?

It provides us with that understanding of reality. We learn about chemistry, physics, biology, technology and that brings more clarity to our everyday life. Knowledge is power. Yet it is only potential power waiting to be released and focused on a meaningful goal. I have long road myself, and I am ready for it. I have the time needed. While patience is next to be challenged.

When you open yourself to this possibility and new realm in which learning is big fun you are not procrastinating anymore. You simply do it. 


PS: Learning = Behavior Change, Leo Gura.

Rage against the dying of the light!

Artificial light nowadays is something that people don’t talk about. We take it for granted. Although it takes a huge part of our lives.

Light, lightning bulbs comes from the same time. The link between electricity and light is a big remark for our time. Tomas Edison made that in . And since than we are developing completely different lifestyles around the simple option to stay awake a little bit.

Staining awake late at night changes our biological clock. It turns us against nature. It makes us close the window curtains and sleep until 9-10 on the weekends, even later. Why not? It’s so good to chill in bed early in the morning. Well there is nothing wrong with that, not at all. While sun makes us happier and lifts our wellbeing, artificial light does the opposite. It is not a big secret actually. But what really is important to keep in mind is that it also influence our hormones.


The sun and lamps emit visible light and invisible radiations, such as ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR). Which radiations determine its effect on our cells and hormones. Exposing yourself longer to artificial illumination cause your body to produce less melatonin. Hence that is disturbing your sleep. It tends to prevent you from falling asleep. Also reducing the sleeps quality. If you tend to wake up groggy that may be one of the reasons. In fact artificial light is responsible for some types of cancer and cardiovascula in result of “over exposing”. And that may be avoided by going to bet earlier. Or reducing illumination as much as possible with the progression of the night.

A simple recipe for increasing quality of sleep is :

 A cup of hot water, mixed with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey

As weird as it might sound it is quite tasty. The honey helps vinegar almost taste like apple cider. Tim Ferris mentioned that at in his book “Tools of Titans”. It works wonders, I was amazed from its effect. It really makes your body and mind to recharge through the night. The receive is very helpful if you are missing some hours of sleep, or if you had a hard day.



Understanding culture

Laying out the fundamental dynamics to understand culture

Have you ever traveled abroad? With this travel hype nowadays, chances are that you have probably visited at least one foreign country. Ok good, so what, you might ask.

Culture is certainly a topic that is really getting more significant this century, compared to our evolution through humanity. Why? This is due to the continuous improving globalization. Geographical spaces start to shrink and lose sense over the large scheme of things. Planes are flying from one continent to another in matter of hours. Calls and texts are instantly received on the opposite side of the world. And new technology like 3D emerges constantly, providing us with the extraordinary ability to dematerialized objects and to reconstruct them again.

It is bewildering how quickly these have boundaries are being erased with technology like pencil from a canvas.

Shrinking these boundaries is freeing people of living only in their county for life. travelling is getting accessable. So do people travel more and more often. Corporations start to open their doors for every race and nationality. But what is missing? We are not opening ourselves to explore them. We are missing personal skills. I count myself in that category certainly.  I have worked in a multicultural environment and it is truly complicated. People are judging others for their actions and words, but that is what it look on the surface. The root cause is culture. We have this  more like judgemental behaviour. And it is not good place to be, I have been there aswell. The key is perspective.

Culture is something that technology can not change in flash of light. There is no application that can solve this issues. At least there are no evidence of this happening soon. However these issues are problems of diversity and differences.


I believe they are universal principles that are equally important for every race and nation. That is becoming more and more evident as I am travelling to from a country to country. But it is important to stay for a while and connect with the national culture. There are huge rewards for us, if we succeed managing these complicated relations. It is not a secret that different nations have what economic calls “unfair advantage”. It basically entails that every country has more from one resource than other, cost for certain goods are low compared in other geographic regions. And the same applies in other of cognitive skills and personal traits. Some are better leaders, where other solve problems faster.


Sharing is a requires at least two sides, but it can me practiced and between more parties. Sharing is a free and sharing can save us. Peace and happiness multiplies when is being shared. Lets give it a try.
