The Importance of the Healthy Changes and the Way to Achieve them
Others are constantly seeking change, others are portrayed as proud to remain the same. Others sometimes are identified with one idea and others with the opposite. So, to refine under what conditions we can say that a change is prudent and under which stability is synonymous with character integrity? What is it that makes a difference? In addition, what characteristics do you need to have in order to diagnose when a change is needed and what to understand when a change has to happen in a healthy way and to be maintained in the long run?

How to Simply Create the Reality You Desire
How can we get something that we want or find ourselves in a situation that we would much like? As usual, I notice in society a dipole. On the one hand, those who believe that the result is a direct consequence of the effort, and on the other the ones who think they can simply ask for something and the universe will offer it to them. In my opinion, on the one hand, we have an overestimation of the effort and, on the other, a devaluation of it as there is no idea of even the slightest change in themselves. I say that there is a way to synthesize these two sides. And if we put into order the principles that seem to govern life then we will understand that we are always creators and, ultimately, we have always had what we really deserved. And through this understanding we can now consciously acquire and find what we sincerely desire without any particular difficulties.

The Process of Maturity
What happens when you believe in something too much? Most people may think that is necessary to have an "identity." And that the more deeply we have come into it the more proud we must feel. But have we noticed that this unilateral devotion is ultimately the one that leads us to a greater separation? Athletics are a good example, however, identification may not be so distinct. Perhaps without realizing, your conceptions and reactions come from a certain system of ideas. Especially if this has been shown with a positive "underpinning" like morale, modern, progressive, and so on. This is why strong alertness is required. As long as you are free from any intense faith, any attachment so that your flexibility is reborn and you live with authenticity!

Hiking Unforgettably all the Majestic Cinque Terre
Previous August I experienced the magnificence of hiking the Cinque Terre and of visiting all 5 villages. It's a place of outstanding beauty; blue sea, colorful-picturesque houses built on the edge of the rocks, olive trees and vineyards. I felt, thus, the need to describe this experience in detail.

What Do We Mean by Metaphysical and How It Limits Our Perception
What do we mean by metaphysics today? Does it often give us the impression that it is something outside the natural? For my part, I can see a great admiration on a theoretical level in ancient philosophies, but at the same time a huge ignorance of the overwhelming majority of people for what is, in reality, described there. This is evident from the fact that we seem to be indifferent or even we intimidate elements that have appeared there when they are presented to us without the reference of their origins. On the contrary the materialistic tendencies that we seem to display as a society has shaped our perception based on totally different ideas which in my opinion is a matter of time to be understood as unrealistic.

How the Change of Attitude Magically Leads to the Appearance of Solutions
I know well what it's like to be attached to something, to give it all, to think about it all the time, to try with more and more passion, but the results to not be coming; on the contrary, to feel that life totally disappoints you and does not give you what you are entitled to . This disturbs you and makes you angry because you probably think that your mental or physical body effort should produce better results. But does life work this way? And if anyone still says that this is true of inanimate acquisitions, is it the same with relationships with living beings? Each one literally represents a different universe with countless thoughts, needs, experiences, and so on. Are relationships with other people simply goals or something far wider, something that can not be acquired or achieved?

The Freedom of Being Released from Labels
How much do the words we use and the labels in general limit us? We are accustomed to using them, and through them we are talking but often we neglect to take into account that the elements with which we have identified them do not necessarily describe the existing situation. Or when we describe ourselves, are we the same as anybody else bearing the same label or is there a reason not to do any action that seems unbalanced in relation to the label?

The Encirclement of Fear
Fear seems to be dominant, from the collective level to the deepest individual. Its "tentacles" appear everywhere, from emotional relationships to the labor market. Its consequences seem to be directly reflected in how we behave, how we make decisions and how we live. What I am debating is how much this is justified. I am concerned that we allow its influence on us and I understand that we can defend ourselves, while at the same time, we can also understand the reasons that is caused and by whom. Because I think there are roads away from that which are even more realistic.

The Extreme Distortion of Reality by Popular Media
I am wondering what most people consider as being informed if not to learn like parrots just the information provided by the big news agencies? Especially with today's technology people being connected to the internet for the most part of the day, it's easier to learn the news by heart. How can one think he has a real perception of reality when his knowledge is limited to what the few specific networks that have the most resources show him? What kind of thinking do people think they have cultivated when their knowledge doesn't seem to go any further from a sample of supposedly different ideas that ultimately all serve the same purpose of those who control these networks? Can you have a fair judgment when you can not even imagine or be open to go beyond the popular ideas?

Why You Shouldn't Pursue Happiness
What does it mean to pursue happiness? First of all, indeed, it doesn't make sense to not look for beautiful feelings. But the fact that we are chasing something doesn't also show something about our attitude towards our present situation? Isn't it sometimes causing us to deny the present moment and be looking at a vague future? I believe life can become much more harmonious if we start managing events differently, if we understand how much we are affected by labels we have subconsciously put them on.

Self-Realisation Naturally Fights Depression
While the incidents of diagnosed depression are growing rapidly in the western world, the usual practices of immediate drug-type solutions seem to be unable to provide the solution. As much as victims and therapists prefer them, they just hide the problem under the surface instead of curing it, which actually makes the situation worse. So I think it is necessary to approach the problem with less direct but more radical methods - where possible - and what I'm doing in this podcast is to try to analyze in what ways Self-awareness can be more beneficial in the therapy and even more in the prevention.

Close Your Eyes for a Second and Do the Jump, on the Other Side Your Brighter World Awaits You
In this article, I find that either because of financial crisis or other reasons many young people are confined to environments with older people who, while supposed to be there to help them, they actually drag them down. It is often difficult to get away from that as these people have been there since the time they first remember themselves and they may not be able to imagine their life differently. However, through my own experience, I have found that a radical change of life is crucial and the usefulness of getting away of these influences enormous.

Hoi An in Vietnam, the Paradise for a Western Expatriate
What if we take a look at the fast-growing country for more than 15 years (> 6%), Vietnam with the amazing weather for the most part of the year, the wonderful landscapes, the marvelous food and the friendly people? Last January I traveled in Vietnam for almost a month from the south to the north and I became impressed by its infrastructure. In Podcast, I'm looking at how it would be possible for someone to move there for a while. But because life is not just what it looks like in tourist pictures, many of the popular places are not ideal. In my opinion, the city of Hoi An in central Vietnam includes all the necessary features at the appropriate dosage to provide many benefits to an expatriate from the West.

Daedalus’ Escape from his Labyrinth and the Wisdom of the Spontaneous Action
In this article I am doing a decompilation of this particular Greek myth. How can it compare to the way we face life in relation to our needs and aspirations? What role do the latter play in our relationship with the mystery of life and how do we act on them? How real is ultimately what we perceive as future, and don't we sometimes overdo it and do not give value to the present moment? And if we contemplate on it, all these present moments are the ones that will eventually lead us to situations more suitable for us. Also, if we think of improvement as a goal, wouldn't it be useful to refine it a little more, as it is only a label that can easily drag us into situations not helpful to us?

The Unbearable Lightness of Being “Weird”
I am wondering what is considered normal by most if not what the majority considers normal? At the same time do we personally believe that what most people say is always right? Would we not, therefore, need to think that perhaps we have to make a conscious choice between whether we want to agree with most or whether it leaves us unaffected to be considered "weird?" Then the other side behind the curtain appears, the bright one, where life becomes simpler, more authentic and way more flexible.

Beyond Left Brain Thinking and the Formation of Our Worldview
I think my generation has been nurtured in linear logic and in great loyalty only on something that proves to be demonstrable. Through my own experience, I have seen how restrictive this is for our horizons, for our quality of life and understanding. At the same time, because I think most of the information we receive is controlled, I can see that this trend is not accidental. This is of immense importance as the way we perceive our worldview directly affects every aspect of life!

The Essence of Comprehension and How It Reflects on Self-Esteem
Almost every Greek, till at least my generation, has been brought up with the archetype of the resourceful Ulysses. He was the one came up with the smart idea of the Trojan Horse that gave the Greeks the opportunity to enter the caste of Troy. He, also, managed after 10 years to return from Troy to Ithaca after roaming in several kinds of places, usually facing different types of adventures. But Ulysses was resourceful and was always figuring out a way in order to manage to reach his beloved Penelope back home in the end. So one of his greatest characteristics was that he was able to approach any new challenge in the most appropriate way. Evey challenge was entirely new so the strategy needed was also entirely new but also effective.

Politics and Freedom of Mind in an Airbnb in Paris
I roam around many places in Europe and talk to people but everywhere I hear similar ideas that are very close to what I read in the big news agencies. And I find that very often people because they get used to some ideas take them for granted without questioning if they actually describe reality. Politics could not be outside of it because the propaganda game at this level seems to be genius. An example of my observations was a discussion I had with the AirBnb owner to whose house I was staying when I visited Paris.

With What Mentality to Approach the Meditation Practice
Meditation is a well-known practice, while basic methods are really very simple. Many times, however, people do not dedicate themselves in the long run, as they would like, or they feel they are not getting the benefits they expected. Through my own experiences in the few years of my practice, I have understood that meditation needs to be approached from the very beginning in a different way from what we are used to facing something new that we put into our lives. This approach was decisive not only in my deeper understanding of meditation but also in shaping my relationship with life in general.

4th of 10 Days of my Water Fasting: My “Whys”
A small diary about my 10 days of consuming nothing but water together with some relevant thoughts about it. Every new beginning, every change literally everything we do I firmly believe has to first and foremost start from the "Whys." These reasons not only need to be crystal clear and set in our minds even before the beginning but is demanded to be our individual reasons. Not to try to imitate someone, not to try to prove something and so on. Instead they must be based on what we really consider as right. In this podcast I talk about all the reasons that I entered into this challenge.

2nd of 10 days of my Water Fasting: Why Eating Frequently is Often an Addiction
A diary about my 10 days of water fasting together with some relevant thoughts about it. This time I talk about the misunderstandings in nowadays' societies that we aren't able to survive without frequent meals. We don't seem to consider at all what is the role of the storage of fats in our bodies. As well the addictive effects that several toxins induced in foods create together with certain carbohydrates. Same like a smoker, craving a substance doesn't necessarily mean that we cannot live without it. As well, obviously when we are used to a certain lifestyle for years and years it's difficult to see anything outside of it and even if we try it's natural to face difficulties in the beginning.

An Alternate Approach to Learning (that we already know)
How do we usually learn if not through information from authorities? I wonder, do we really get real knowledge then? In whatever you learn, have you ever included your individual approach?

I mention here many of the thoughts I have gathered trough the years together with an example that I think can make the concept more easily understood.

A Valuable Lesson of Friendship on the Shores of the Rives Ganges
As you travel especially to countries of a different culture from the West, experiences will inevitably be unique. At the same time, the personal experience differentiates so much the image we have probably acquired from the media. What can we be taught by people of such a different but less comfortable world? How interesting is it when you can honestly connect with them? Personally, every time I visit such a special country I leave with full gratitude and the little story I am describing is one of the reasons.

How to Prepare for Something that Stresses You
When the time for something critical to us approaches, in example an interview, or a test, and so on, we are usually quite anxious. At the same time, we seem to think deeply that the more we think about it, the more likely we are going to go well. But we often neglect to take into account that it is most important to have a clear mind at that time. So how could we differentiate our approach by making our lives easier as well us more efficient and authentic?

Making your Own Choices
How do we make decisions about us? It usually appears that we are too much affected us by the impression that we may leave to others even if we do not recognize it or want to admit it. Many times we even reach a point where we are fully dependent on what is "considered" to be good. Personally, I doubt that this way we can reach a relatively satisfying life. Should not we also have to take into account facts about our own course? How could we then approach each of our decisions so that we come closer to our authenticity? As it is not possible for our acquaintances or the media to always know better than us what is best for us.

Being Released from What You Have Been Calling Reality
Normally we have been used to consider as reality what our senses recognise or other instruments that are made obviously by the human senses. But can this for sure provide us enough information in order to understand and explain reality? I think we should reconsider that as even science has proved the limitations that arise from that perspective. Thus this is a crucial issue for me and I couldn't miss talking about how the 3dimensional world is simply an illusion.

A Contemplation on How to Believe
I was wondering, under what circumstances do we believe anything? It comes from our experience or because someone who is considered to be an authority told us? Can a school of thought help you and under what circumstances? If you learn everything they teach would it be adequate to you?
