Geduld

29 Apr

DISTANCE is not for the fearful, it is for the bold.

It´s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone

in exchange for a little time with the one they love.

It´s for those knowing a good thing when they see it

even if they don´t see it…

Strom Wechsel ganz leicht und mit Benefit…

27 Apr

Es soll ja Menschen geben, die immer noch ihr Licht mit Kohle- oder Atomstrom anschalten.

Da das nicht nur unnötig, umweltschädigend und, wie wir jetzt alle wissen, auch gefährlich ist, gibt es immer mehr ganz einfache Möglichkeiten, zu wechseln.

Hier ist eine ganz tolle: www.urgewald.de

Dort kann man mit seinem Stromwechsel nicht nur die richtige Energie beziehen, sondern auch noch coole Projekte unterstützen, z.B. “Klimaschutz durch vegetarische Kochschulungen” mit Björn Moschinsky. Auf der Site kann man aus diversen Projekten auswählen und wird dann zu www.stromwechseln-hilft.de weitergeleitet, die es einem denkbar einfach machen: man sucht sich nur seinen BioStrom Anbieter raus (die übrigens allesamt günstiger sind als die schmutzigen Riesen!), schickt den Vetrag raus und der neue Anbieter kümmert sich um alles weitere. Fertig.

Sauberer Strom, saubere Sache. Viel Spaß!

C L E A N   P O W E R . . .   be better !

Get up, stand up…

22 Apr

Song.: Bob Marley- Get up, stand up

If you never try anything, you will never accomplish anything. Failure is a vital part of success, whether you’re baking the perfect cake, learning to drive or navigating marriage and parenthood. Falling on your face may give you a scab or two, but after you get back up, you’ll know better which way you want to go on the path to success. Thomas Edison famously said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 1,000 ways that won’t work.”

Loving your mistakes and learning from them is a sign that you love life and are willing to accept the lessons as they come. You might even find that what looks like a failure is actually a gift (even though it may not look like a gift until you’ve revealed the “life lesson” inside). Just recognize that the more you get in the groove of being okay with failure, the easier it becomes to ultimately manifest your successes, both big and small. That’s a winning proposition, for sure!

Thank You, YogaMint !

What is normal ?

KAYENDRIYA-SIDDHIT ASUDDHI-KSAYAT TAPASAH
‘The destruction of impurities through austerities brings about powers to the body and senses.’

When austerities, self-imposed disciplines, are practiced, great will is developed and the abilities of the physical body and senses are extended beyond what is considered normal.
(from Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras)

Thanking for a beautiful day …

17 Apr

Many smiling faces on the train

Laughter in the sunshine

Simply happy people with no need to rush

daring to enjoy the moment in

a world full of turmoil

That´s the key to stay sane

inmidst insanity

Hold on to the light ones

Surround yourself with those aiming towards being better

and ACTING in a way that can bring along

a better place

by spreading the good

What a wonderful day with the luxury to meet several good friends… Thank you guys for a beautiful day!

SUN, Kerstin

Our Home

10 Apr

The human brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the image of the planet from outer space: a single entity in which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That is our home.

***

Das menschliche Hirn kennt nun den Schlüssel zu unserer Zukunft. Wir müssen das Bild unseres Planeten aus dem Weltall betrachten: eine einzelne Einheit, in der Wasser, Luft und Kontinente miteinander verbunden sind. Das ist unser Zuhause. (David Suzuki)

II.33.  VITARKA-BADHANE-PRATIPAKSA-BHAVANAM.
‘When negative or harmful thoughts disturbs the mind, they can be overcome
by constant pondering over their opposites’.
The yogi is ever alert, watching his mind. When he sees useless
thought waves arising, he immediately replaces them with positive
thoughts, thus creating new mental habits that are conducive to spiritual
growth.

(from Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras)

The time is now …

(Deutsche Version weiter unten)
Earth quakes, tsunamis, atom desasters, rampages at schools, mass accidents on the autobahn from sand storms… watching news these days can get you scared. It has begun… Therfor it is ever so important to have a practice that helps one to stay focused and centered in all this madness.

Erdbeben, Tsunamis, Atomkatastrophen, Amokläufe an Schulen, Massenkarambulagen auf der Autobahn wegen Sandsturm… Die Nachrichten zu schauen, kann einem heutzutage Angst machen. Es hat begonnen… Deswegen ist es wichtig, eine Praxis zu haben, die einem hilft, bei all dem Wahnsinn in der Mitte zu bleiben.

Jungle peace

3 Apr

from 14.03.2011

(german version will follow)

Where finally the voices of the people stop. Far away from cars, drums, laughter, music, shops, honking, telephones, beer and restaurants. Where you can only climb up the hill barefeet since every shoe would slip on the leaves. Where, if you only listen carefully and long enough, you understand what the birds say. Where is no danger to step on one of the snakes because you are so aware that you see them before. Where you can tell the difference between the sound of a falling leave and of a monkey in the tree tops. Where you understand what they mean with „everything is alive“: every rock, every thing from the smallest insect to the biggest tree. Where- thank God!- it is too uncomfortable for the „fast tourists“. Where you can breathe so deeply that the clean air fills all my loungs. At the place that I only show to people very rarely because I want to keep it undiscovered. Where I get back every time I am here because I know what this place does to me. Where my meditation stays undisturbed under guarantee. Where i really connect with the ONE every time – – –  this is where I find peace !

– – –

S A M A D H I

– – –

and then: a group of obviously drunken people at the foot of the hill and my fear and hope that not one of the last paradises ends up in the travelling guide as well and gets discovered by „tourists“.

Where does that need of humans come from to destroy the silence???“

LOVE & LIGHT, Kerstin
