Every Wednesday morning I have my yoga class in our local town. Our respected teacher is a very wise man. I believe he is now in his early seventies, but when you see him, you would definitely give him 10 years younger. His body is supple, muscled, well-maintained, but most importantly his mind is peaceful. … Continue reading The wise words of a yoga teacher
Very interesting thoughts this morning: yes! We must say NO to the overconsumption.
It’s about time we stop buying all these crappy things that are being pushed down our throats! That coke you’re drinking, that meat you’re eating, it’s killing you slowly but surely.
That new I-phone? Why do you think the kids of the producers are not allowed to have one? Because it infecting our brain, causing tumors. Almost everything the giant lobbies and industries want to force upon us is toxic. So the only way to stop them and to make them rethink our current society is to stop buying all this crap. Silent boycot works!
Look at all how it’s already changing! A lot of supermarkets are now refusing to distribute certain products and invest and foods with no added sugar, no meat, no gluten, etc. Yes, they are still pushing us to consume too much, but this is their habitual way of coping with boycot, they adapt the products to regain their market share. Silent boycotting works.
Re-integrating free values, such as spending quality time together, smiling, hugging, respecting each other, animals, nature, that’s what we need to do. Not saying that we should all start hugging, but we can spend our time differently. Instead of ravaging all the stores end of the year to celebrate Christmas with tons of gifts and too much food, we can celebrate Christmas for what it used to be: a time to be together, help the poor, be loving and kind and sing songs together, being thankful for the winter season and the spring that follows.
Think about this today, when you’re nearly pushing the “BUY-button” on that Black Friday sales website! Do you really need what you’re about to buy? Will it make you truly happy?
“Mangez ceci, c’est meilleur pour vous. Achetez cela, vous vous sentirez mieux. Allez voir ça, ça vous plaira. Il vous manque ce truc pour être vraiment génial. Il vous faut ce machin pour être aimé de vos collègues. Procurez-vous ce bidule, vous serez plus belle. Prenez un crédit, vous serez plus riche. Offrez-vous ça, vous serez heureux. Partez en vacances là-bas : c’est tendance. Consommez comme ça : nous savons ce qui est bon pour vous… Ecoutez-nous. Ecoutez-nous à la télé, dans la rue, dans le métro, à la radio, dans votre boîte aux lettres, dans vos journaux, sur internet, dans votre boîte mail. Ecoutez-nous, et consommez.”
Vous en avez marre ?
Nous aussi, eux aussi, elles aussi, moi aussi.

It's very easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and to forget to be thankful. And yet, being thankful is such a powerful thing. Every time I remind myself of everything I have accomplished and how thankful I am for that, something shifts. The more thankful I am, the more blessings and … Continue reading Being thankful
We are living in times of great acceleration. What used to take us years to manifest (through visualisations, affirmations or rituals), is now materialising almost instantly. What you send out as negative thoughts is reflected instantly and the positive things you share and give are returned to you shortly after through small daily miracles. The … Continue reading Purification & Protection rituals
