The Beja Flor Age

I yearn for the day we live in the realm of the hummingbird. I want to be free from my mind and free from my ego. Although I have evolved so much over the last year, I pray that I can overcome and evolve even more.

I should probably write more often.

I discovered this DIY beauty book while staying at a friend of a friend’s in Budapest (Óbuda). The design is incredible. I need a copy!

The Heart Will Win

“The heart should play an important role, not only in married life, but in all of our relationships: with friends, relatives, business associates, and even strangers. Even if the other person uses the head, you should use more heart. Remember, ultimately the heart will win; it might take time but it will win. If you really want to use your heart, you will be guided in that direction. God’s guidance will be there. Pray more and trust in that higher force.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi”

– Swami Satchidananda

Mystical Mantra Energy

Apparently here in Europe there’s a Jesus holiday going on today. Something about the Holy Spirit. Obviously, I am not well versed but respectful. Posting this, my favorite version of Hare Krishna, in respect to the holiness of the day. But isn’t everyday holy?

A mantra is mystical energy encased in a sound structure and each mantra contains within its vibrations a certain power. But of all mantras, the maha-mantra (the Hare Krishna mantra) has been prescribed as the easiest and surest way for attaining God Realization in this present age.” 

George Harrison (1943-2001),
in his autobiography :’I, me and Mine’

Fresh Off The Boat (FOB)

Posted in artists, beauty, friendship, health, humor, life, love, neighborhood, Party, relationships, subculture, travel, vacation, WTF by the consummate on June 3, 2011

A private sunset sail on Europe’s largest lake to kick off my summer. I now am the FOB.

C’est Cauchemar

I have dreams with a recurring theme – they are all about me + you. I wish they would stop and we could talk. So get out of my dreams and into my car. Oh wait, I don’t have a car but you understand what I mean right?

Ikon Allah

If G-d wills it…

Is it possible that I am becoming more religious in a sense? My recent trip to Israel left me more proud of my heritage + culture but also with a profound sense of faith. I spent much time in Jaffa where there is a beautiful blend of Jews + Muslims living harmoniously with one another. One day, I found myself sitting on the rocks above waves crashing on the beach with strangers at 4 in the morning. We looked up at the stars and thanked G-d for the beauty we were experiencing. At that moment the Iman began his calls for prayers at the mosque. To hear this sound before dawn was eerie and other worldly. I felt as if I was having an out of body experience. The sound wasn’t unfamiliar, I’ve heard it before but I’ve changed.  As the vocalist Abdullahi sings “Ikon Allah” – Will of G-d, I too sing this tune. If certain things in my life are meant to be, it is the will of G-d and I leave it up to the higher powers that be. I know what I want but if it it is the will of G-d, it will come to be.

Fangs!

So many kitties here in Israel… Makes me think of my Meow-Meow + Borio. Hope they are well.

ADDENDUM: I extended my trip in Israel & will be flying to Hungary on Monday evening instead.

I’m heading to Hungary today. This will be my first time in the land since 2001! And guess what? THERE IS TOFU in this land now. NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM.

I grew up with my mother blasting Brahms Hungarian Dances. So enjoy.

PS: I wish you were with me on this journey

Here’s To Traveling With A Girlfriend

Posted in art, beauty, friendship, health, humor, judaism, life, love, music, travel by the consummate on May 8, 2011

Cheers to my girlfriend whom I am traveling with. We’re “balling out” in Italy currently where we have a week of fun + games planned including celebrating at an Ambassador’s home, shopping (or for some window shopping) at the outlet mall, running through Villa Borghese, visiting sights, seeing music. It’s a good fucking life y’all, especially with friends.

Reconsidering Columbus

Posted in animals, artists, beauty, friendship, life, love, plants, relationships, spirituality, subculture, travel, WTF, yoga by the consummate on October 7, 2010

Native American culture and philosophy is close to my heart. I’ve had the honor of participating in spiritual ceremonies and met amazing torch bearers (some in this video) who are passing these ways down to the next generation of Native peoples and others who respect these ways. It’s high time we look at history and start telling a new story – the TRUTH.

End Off Shore Drilling NOW

Posted in animals, beauty, life, plants, travel, Uncategorized, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 2, 2010

BP should not only be “pressured” over this recent oil spill, legal charges should be brought against the company on behalf of the women, men, children and sea life effected. Say a prayer for the sea life and the countless number of families who rely upon the gulf for livelihood. If this oil spill is not contained and spreads to Florida, we’ll see a wipe out of sea life there – including turtles, manatees, dolphins and other important creatures.

If you find yourself near the gulf with some time, I urge you to volunteer. More info here.

To give you an idea of statistics, like the fact that more than 70% of the country’s birds frequent the gulf, click here.
