I’m totally broke due to Indian demonetisation

Totally broke due to Indian demonetisation – Life of a Traveling Yogi (video)

Thanks to the Indian demonetisation I’m totally broke. I have precisely zero rupees left. I can’t pay for food, I can’t pay for groceries. I even can’t pay for a lime soda. The idea behind the demonitisation is to get the black money out of the Indian economy. I’m all for that, but at this […]

Polyamory a lovely solution

There is a dating site, secondlove.nl, especially for people who are in a relationship but are looking for a flirt behind the back of their partner.

Peace is a choice

Peace is a choice

Her long, dark curls are waving in the warm evening breeze. The dimmed light of the lantern behind me flickers in her eyes, lights up the little blue circle around the faithful brown. She holds my hand in hers. Plays with my fingers. I just stare at her beauty. She has something wild, mysterious, exotic. […]

What is money worth?

What is money worth?

What is money worth? What is the value of gold? Of diamonds? Of a Bentley, a private airplane or a villa in the center of New York City? My life revolves around yoga nowadays, just like I wanted for the last three years. I sold all my stuff and every time I sold something I […]

Eneco 'sponsoring' my voluntary work in Nicaragua

Spoorzone op dood spoor

Het is over en uit. Per vandaag geen yoga meer in de Spoorzone. En hoelang de Spoorzone nog de Spoorzone is, is ook maar de vraag. Of eigenlijk is het antwoord er al, want wat de Spoorzone ooit had moeten zijn – een broedplaats voor creativiteit, duurzame, sociale ontwikkeling, een community met een sterk samenhorigheidsgevoel, […]
