Armchair Travelling – Nepal
Thankfully, Spring has now well and truly arrived here in Brittany; the blossom is falling from the trees and the roses are budding. Unfortunately, the covid-related travel restrictions remain in force. It is therefore necessary to take a non-essential journey and one that is further than the permitted 10km from my place of residence. However, there will be no steep fine for not carrying my attestation papers for this trip; another Wordless Wednesday virtual journey; today, a visit to the ‘roof of the world.’
Thank you taking this little trip! Nepal is a country that I have been fortunate enough to visit many times, these photographs were all taken before the terrible earthquake that caused so much devastation there almost exactly six years ago. As well as being warm-hearted and welcoming, the Nepalese are…

great photos of beautiful places
Everyone has Lumps, Bumps and Rolls. It means you are HUMAN.
some good wisdom in here
While doing a bit of research of today’s topic, I googled “Beauty” and the first image I got is highlighted below. Furthermore, I asked my 4 years cousin which photo is beautiful after showing her images of chubby dark lady and a fair slim lady. I was shocked beyond words when she chose the fair slim lady. What could a 4 year child unaware of worlds hypocrisy know about physical appearance and be that consumed in it!
But aren’t we all obsessed with physical appearances ? There is a look out every where for the attainment of perfect beauty. Beauty for females is defined by perfect symmetry where one half mirrors other. The eyes should be proportionate to the head and face. Lips should be full.The skin should be alabaster, milky and creamy and the body should have perfect curves. Males should be tall, hard and angular. A high forehead…

Excerpt Chapter 5 – Transcendence
Chapter 5 – Transcendence
Transcendence is not change. Transcendence causes change. Transcendence is the power of you Self – Elevating. Self – Elevating means seeking the possible and positive versions of the moment and doing something about it. It is you leapfrogging the obstacle of daily life with your instinct. Your transcendence converts problems into challenges. You shift a moment from a burden to an inspiration.
Excerpt from my book Satisfaction: Chapter 4 – Life Stages
The Myriad Moment (Everything all at once) … Life Stages and Life Roles throw opportunities for identity, success and insight at us all the time. At the same time there is no shortage of sources of anxiety, stress, frustration and corrosion of your self confidence. And what about finding loving acceptance with all the healing and challenging growth that comes with that? There is no button we can press ‘Stop the planet; I want to get off’.
The complexity and weight of this confluence of responsibility and development can feel daunting. That’s why it is so crucial to have a quiver of handy response mechanisms. Mental mechanisms that enable you to embody your nature as you learn to thrive in complicated times. This book highlights avenues of understanding and resources for a man to shine his light on the next step.
It’s Not All in Your Mind

For the people who have difficulty distinguishing what Depression/ Mental illness/ Emotional Trauma is or isn’t…Read This.
Mental illness, depression or emotional damage isn’t a sour mood, bad attitude, evil spirits, pretend, a cry for attention, fun, a hobby, habit, a mask or a choice. People who suffer with mental illness or the trauma from emotional damage whether diagnosed or undiagnosed these people live in constant judgement, pain, confusion and darkness.
Mental illness or emotional trauma doesn’t take a vacation and won’t mysteriously disappear, and it’s certainly not something people outgrow, medication might help, but for many people the battle to have normal days is an ongoing struggle. No one can drink away, pray away, or wish away mental illness or the damage caused by emotional abuse. And, as quiet as it’s kept men suffer from mental illness, depression and emotional brokenness just as much as women do. Even…

Chapter 3 – Understand and Be Understood. An Excerpt from the Book Satisfaction. Published Today!
When you press the ‘1’ key on your computer keyboard that is exactly what you see on your screen. A ‘1’. If you press and hold the ‘shift’ key first and then press the same key that gave you the number ‘1’ you actually end up seeing a ‘!’. This is analogous to the Female Frixion and the Male Stack appearing from the same core yet developing in distinct environments. ‘Shift’ is the operative word because it may take a shift of mentality to adjust our perspective from adversarial to adjacent; from different to complementary. This shift work is done in oneself first and then shared in conversations with others. Your shift work results in satisfaction, feeling appreciated, insight, sparking curiosity …

The most underated element of productivity
Merriam webster defines the word productive as having the quality or power of producing especially in abundance. Usually how most of us see productivity is getting many things done in a span of 24 hours we have. It may include studying, working out, getting social, eating healthy etc all in one day, everyday. It might also mean not procrastinating and striking out every thing on your “to do list”.
Many of us including me are so hooked upon this “productivity culture”. We watch so many productivity gurus like Ali abdal, thomas frank etc aspiring to be like them. We buy fancy colorful papers or bullet journals or make an amazing GTD notion template to keep all our to do lists organised. we finally clean our desks( even though we hate cleaning) and set it up to be productive. The desk is put in a comfortable place, there is coffee…

Hot springs and Giant Salamanders
I recently went on day trip to Yubara with my Fiance, Saya.The area of Yubara is famous for being a Onsen(hot spring) town.It was once an independent town but now is part of the city of Maniwa in the north of Okayama prefecture. It has a beautiful rotenburo (outdoor baths) called “Sunayu” that both men and women can use for free. Just make sure to wear a bathing suit or wrap yourself in a towel. There are special dresses that women can rent and wear. From my experience, towels are not enough and I saw things that can`t be unseen. There are many inns that you can stay at that have hotsprings you can relax in. The water from the hotsprings in this area is suppose to be good for health especially your skin. There are also plenty of Ashiyu( outdoor foot baths)that you can…

Snow Leopard crouched and huddled himself shivering in the piercing cold winds that danced all around him and the glowing woodfire that did its best to give a little warmth in the dead of night at an altitude of seventeen thousand feet close to the Lanak La mountain pass in the Himalayan region. His mission was critical to the success of the Empire’s dominance in this cold and mystical Sino-Indo-Tibetan sierra terrain.
The year is 1900, the beginning of the twentieth century, an era when the British and the Russian Empire of the Tsars were competing for supremacy in Central Asia. This political and diplomatic confrontation between the two superpowers during this epoch was dubbed as ‘The Great Game.’
