13: Slow down now

6 Comments

Slow down now. Take it easy. Take a deep breath

Sometimes i really need to remind myself of this. Slowing down comes natural for snails. Home is wherever they are.
I think we humans can learn a lot from snails. For me snails represent beautiful metaphors and a powerful reminder that it’s ok to take things a little more easy.
Why worry and hurry if you can achieve the same thing while being relaxed? Focusing is much more easy when we’re relaxed.
And we’ll get there in the end, just like the snails do. Just glide towards where you want to be and you’ll arrive there one day.

Speaking about the heart, why not see our heart as our true home? Everything else can be taken from us, but as long as we are alive our heart is with us. And if we take up compassion as our armor, we even have our own little shell protecting us just like the snails have…

a.ka. the Milky Way! Our very home, as seen from the hills in southern France. This is an image composed of 5 photos. The trees you can see in the top are actually 180 degrees from the tree in the bottom part. So you’ll have to think/make the curve yourself πŸ™‚

The home of Nikola Tesla

2 Comments

The great inventor Nikola Tesla was born in present day Croatia in the town of Smiljan. His father was a priest for the local church. This church was rebuild and the family house stands there too. In front of both buildings is a statue of the inventor. Really a wonderful museum to visit, with lots of nice quotes by Tesla and some of the early inventions. The documentary on Nikola Tesla was both fascinating and alienating, as it showed some of the strange visionary flashes of light from which Nikola Tesla was suffering. He eventually learned to live with them. If you happen to be close by, please consider visiting this small museum. So many of his inventions have found their way into our homes. Why not visit the home where it all started? πŸ™‚
