Low season wins

Low season wins

Many travel destinations have more visitors during a high season, when the weather is best, during holidays and festivals, or perhaps just because of habitual migration. These are often important reasons; travellers accept the crowds and inflated prices as trade-offs.

Occasionally, even sensible travellers disregard their guidebook’s first chapter (“When To Go”) and visit during the “wrong” season – and they win! The weather is not unpleasant, the prices are heavily discounted, the streets are free, the locals are more open, and new perspectives are unveiled. And sometimes, while out picking wild asparagus, the sky bursts with rainbows, and you really wonder: why is this the low season?

Viajeros por el mundo, nuevo canal de youtube!

Amigos, les comparto la intro de mi canal de viajes de youtube, espero que les guste.

 

Hemos decidido vivir sin apegos a un sólo lugar. Somos nómadas digitales y yogis, es decir que trabajamos remotamente desde una computadora, sentados junto al mar, viviendo en las montañas y en muchos otros lugares. Practicamos yoga y meditación todos los días. Hay varios factores que nos hacen cambiar de lugar, como el clima, la búsqueda de lugares para hacer retiros de meditación, visitar a nuestros maestros en Asia, visitar a nuestras familias, la búsqueda de un estilo de vida contemplativo pero con acceso a un mundo en donde convivir con diferentes culturas y experiencias. La terminación de una visa también determina el que tengamos que volar hacia nuevos horizontes. Generalmente vivimos entre 3 y 6 meses en cada lugar, así que podemos compartir mucho sobre lo que hemos aprendido tanto en preparación de viaje como en lo que implica vivir en lugares tan variados como Escocia, India, Turquía, Marruecos, Europa, etc

Dervish Dance

We were invited by our friends from Les Arts Turcs to see Dervish Dance. It’s a beautiful ritual where one hand raises to connect with God and the other hand directed towards all beings. I think since it requires mindfulness, concentration and relaxation is a way to meditate on single pointed attention thus calming and settling the mind. If done with the understanding of egolessness, letting go of self grasping, it can lead to a deeper wisdom meditation.

Dreamscapes old

Dreamscapes old

So, things have been going well for you, huh?
Are you sure you haven’t noticed?
Something just doesn’t seem right.
You likely have been aware of it all along.
Sometimes you may even pinch yourself.
Other times you may wish you were dreaming.
What if we became lucid in our waking lives?
Could we all then live freely? Are we not free now?
Consider if we’re not. How would you know?
Then you realize it’s very simple.
