Volcanoes

Some notes from a visit to Auckland Museum – 09/05/2021 Volcanos aren`t unique to Earth. Quite the contrary – everywhere scientists look on other planets and moons, they find them. In Nicaragua, young women were once thrown as sacrifices into the crater of Masaya Volcano. People living in central Africa made an annual offering of ten of their finest warriors to the hungry volcano God Nyudodogora. In New Zealand, for better or worse, they have chosen to build their greatest city amongst volcanos. Geologists assure us that Auckland is an active volcanic field. Human beings are instinctively attracted to symmetry....

SALTWATTER BUDDHA

Pieces from my last reading: Saltwatter Buddha – A surfer`s quest to find zen on the sea by Jaimal Yogis Zen ”But maybe if I had been calmer, I might have seen other options, might have avoided creating so much worry. Or not. I really don’t know.“ About Thich Nhat Hanh: ”But it wasn’t even what he said. It was how he said it, how he moved. What his being exuded. I have never seen such peace and kindness on a human’s face. I decided that day that I would be a Buddhist monk, too.” Surf *In Hawaii, many many...

Swami Dayananda

Portuguese 🙂 ‘Que eu tenha a maturidade de aceitar o que nao posso mudar, o desejo e o esforco para mudar o que nao posso e a sabedoria para saber a diferenca entre o que posso e o que nao posso mudar.

Nagging Vs Teaching

Some ideas from the book ”Big Ideas for Curious Mind” Nagging is like very bad teaching. You are a teacher whenever you help someone else understand something. Remember that if you are being nagged, someone is just trying to teach you something – and remember too, that if you want to explain something to someone it’s better to teach than nag. If you want to get other people to do things we have to explain properly what we want. We have to get them to see for themselves why it is such a good idea. *** I thought that was...
