Since the beginning of 2012, I started following a one-week detox program in order to put some order within my internal functions. It was tough during the first months, not only because of the strict food intake, but also because … Continue reading
And you have a first reason.
Being surrouneded by Indians and foreigners, I get to appreciate even more the Indian ways of thinking about life and living through the days. I listen to the conversations and I gather jewels of wisdom from simple and beautiful souls … Continue reading
During my morning walks, I often spot several monkeys cradled in the upper levels of a block’s corner. Several couples, children of different ages and little crowds here and there. I often tell myself I should bring food to them. … Continue reading

Human nature is much the same all over the world, and in all times. We find the same rivalry and claim of “the only real thing” existing today, both in the case of the rival Voodoo doctors of Africa and the polished leaders of the fashionable metaphysical cults of America – and among all who come in between these two poles.

It is not owned or controlled by any person, cult or school – and no particular form of religious belief is necessary to one in order that he may obtain benefit from it.

Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.
The pile of plastic bottles of drinking and mineral water in my bedroom reminds me of the precious liquid. The One Diva Liquid. Nothing makes me realize its importance more than being here in Bangalore, India. Special tanks of … Continue reading
