I meditated

I meditated. I was glad that not only thoughts about the interview arose.
A dog appeared in my imagination, too. It came close to me, but as I had my eyes closed I couldn't see that it was a dangerous dog. It wasn't scared either, because I was so motionless. Mmmh, but how did I know that it was a dangerous dog? I saw it even I had my eyes closed. Everything is full of contradictions. Life can obviously not be explained. I remained quiet, because I meditated and then the dog disappeared. It came from the right side and it left the room on the left side. I am sure this has a meaning. So the dog was gone, what came next? Not so much, I sat and breathed. I seem to become relaxed again.

On giving good advice: All my good advices that I like to give for free are somehow redundant. Knowing that the script of our lives is already written, advices are for nothing. This fact makes it easier for me to listen. To listen is not so easy, because I always have ideas how to improve my life and those of the others. Seeing that it is impossible to influence the lives of others for the better by giving advice, because everything will happen anyway, I become a bit quieter. To listen is no more an effort, but happens effortless as if I listen to an interesting story. Nothing is expected from my side. Nice.

Hi Hi,
The next book that I recommend to you is "Memories, Dreams, Reflections", an autobiography of C.G. Jung as recorded and edited by Aniela Jaffe. You will be amazed how spiritual Carl Jung was, he talks about the importance of analyzing dreams as they are a direct link to the subconscious.

Hi, one book after the other, not all at the same time. :)
I am reading the "lost footsteps" now. Btw are you from Roumania?

Shall one really give all these thoughts so much meaning? Isn't it so much better to see them coming and to see them going and then to focus again on life as it unfolds in the present? The hot coffee, the cake, and so on.

Oh, it's tea time.

You've helped me to decide to give the vegan diet another go - I've tried it several times and it really made me feel better and then I slid off into cow's milk and butter and, well, you get the picture. My question is: when you talk about having tea and cake (which I, also, love) is this a vegan cake?

Good Day U,
Can't say that I am Rumanian. An American Yogi from NYC. There are several reasons why I recommended The Lost Footsteps to you, we can discuss such after you finish the read. The main premise of the practice is to raise our conscious level. Thus a need to delve into the subconscious. All the more power to you if you can supplement asana, pranayama, meditation, diet, satsang ... with dream analysis.

Dear Anna,

No it is not a vegan cake, as I bought it in a bakery. I even reflected if I should mention this cake.
It's difficult to be 100 %. I try to approach it, but......there are these little weaknesses in my life....:)

I'm right now preparing something to eat. I do not have much time, so I made a sauce with red wine vineagre, olive oil, Dijon mustard (hot) and I put little peas in it. I eat bread and vegan butter with it. I really like this and it is again totally vegan.

I always get back to an animal friendly lifestyle,....I am very glad that you too have find the way of eating (and living) vegan, that is so much more animal friendly than anything else.

Let us go on with it......
Own weakness makes us perhaps more understanding the weaknesses of our fellows.

Good Day A,

This sounds very good. I like to have power (more power).

The book is a page turner, that's for sure. I should knit socks, but I pefer to read. :)
