That moment I saw the embodied representation of one of my masters I knew my way of life had to change. The structure is hollow, interestingly enough, i feel life should be this way. One should just be a shell that does not let anything affect to such an extent that you surrender yourself to emotions. "We are a soul with a body, not a body with a soul". Emotions bring chaos to the mind and affects the body, therefore clarity is never found, nor does enlightenment. Being present, being hollow, living day by day, working on flowing as smooth as water, detaching yourself from extreme emotions... Then, we'll find inner peace. This is my interpretation, and as Buddha says; "My path is just one path, not the only one", such is the way I think towards spirituality.
Tsukiji outer fish market, afternoon. There's so much fuss about how you HAVE to go to Tsukiji at 3.00 am to stand in line for the tuna auction, or at 5.00 am to stand in line for the one and only best sushi stall, but unless you are a wholesale purveyor of fish, I really disagree-- there are still tons of interesting sights to take in and endless amazing still-wet-from-the-sea foods to be sampled, all the way until the market closes at 2.00 pm. It's always lovely to be the first person to arrive somewhere, but even if you oversleep your alarm (or just can't motivate to get up that early), it's still worth checking out, and every little stall still has some of the freshest fish in town. 🐟🦀🦑🐙🦐
There's something so romantic about sailing - thoughts of discovering untouched coves & beaches, meeting new & interesting people, finding treasures but this world is getting smaller everyday where it gets harder and harder to discover new things for the first time. Humans are being pushed further and further to find solitude away from other humans and get off the grid to get back to that rush of discovery and awe of seeing a place first. We may not have discovered this cove, but at least we were able to get off the tourists trail a bit, and enjoy some peace and quiet, pretending we were the first people to sail into this place. #sailing#elnido#palawan#mikeandrachthaitheknot#elbertsexplore
I've been a big tourist in my own city the past two weeks, visiting as many places I can before I leave this wonderful city. I've been here a year now and have really fallen in love with Vancouver, but my 25 year old soul knows I need to move on. There's bigger fish to fry out there 🐠
