Happyness is happiness with a jasmine scent!

Bombinhas is a peninsula the shape of a shark, at least this is my perception and we are now on its fin.

As I am a multi-passion person, meaning that I have multiple passions, one of them is staying. Not just staying, but staying as a state of being when you don’t do anything. Anything – at all, do you understand? A meditative state where you just let your thoughts free without trying to stop them in any way. This way I came to the idea of speaking of slow travel, animism, Shipibo, money, energy and on-line, a cocktail that doesn’t seem to blend, but in my “staying in style” state it blends just fine.

A few years back I lived for a while in a village of Shipibo Indians in the Amazon jungle. Here I discovered a version of Animism. The word “animism” comes from the Latin “anima” = spirit and is used to refer to the religion of the primitive cultures. According to Shipibo Indians, all that surrounds us has energy of its own: water, rocks, mountains, even man made things. For them diseases are energetic blockages.

For me, like for these “retarded” Shipibo, everything is energy and vibration and I was amazed to feel the energy of the on-line as a result of Lavinia’s article on republica.ro and the share of our page by Radu F. Contantinescu. With the sudden increase of popularity came an unexpected high number of messages. The messages were fine, but the energy of the minds, all thinking of the same subject in the same time interval, moved energy in the Universe. I wasn’t expecting it, but it was interesting. This energy of the people, most of them thinking about money, caused me to react and as Aris has wanted to become a surfer ever since he used to watch the surfers in Chile, we decided that with the last money we would buy a surfboard.

We will be surfers! I don’t like water much, mostly because of the salt. I am a little gay when speaking of ocean water, as Carla says. So after this shopping session we were left with $100 for fruits.

So now I stay and I enjoy watching the kids growing every moment, I enjoy every day a sunrise holding Lavinia’s hand, on the beach, with a ristretto and a cigarette that the Argentinians call “el manianero” and write while listening to the ocean and thinking of the Universe.

So we have a week of surfing ahead of us, sun, beach, love, fruits and writing… No money, or, better said, little money.

Now it’s my turn to ask; is your month full of joy with moments of sadness or sad with moments of joy?

How much do you spend for that?

You got it by now, I’m sure, happyness is not about figures! 🙂






Firicirea, este un fel de fericire cu iz de iasomie! 🙂

Bombinhas este o peninsula in forma de rechin, cel putin asa o vad eu, iar noi stam cocotati chiar pe aripioara lui.

Cum sunt multipasional, adica am o gramada de pasiuni, una dintre ele este statul. Nu statul de drept, ci statul ce reprezinta o stare pasiva in care sa nu faci nimic. Ba, da nimic, stii ce zic?! O stare meditativa in care sa dai liber la ganduri fara sa incerci sa le opresti in vreun fel. Asa mi-a venit in cap sa va vorbesc un pic despre slow travel, animism, shipibo, bani, energie si on-line, un cocktail ce pare fara legatura dar in starea mea de “stat cu stil” am gasit una!

Acu ceva ani in urma, am trait  o vreme intr-un sat de indieni shipibo, in jungla Amazoniana.  Aici am descoperit o varianta a Animismului. Termenul de animism vine din latinul “anima” ce inseamna spirit si este folosit pentru a desemna stagiul religios al culturilor primitive. Conform indienilor Shipibo, toate lucrurile ce ne inconjoara au o energie, apa, pietrele, muntii chiar si lucrurile facute de catre om. Pentru ei, bolile sunt expresii empatice a blocajelor energetice pe care le porti.

Pentru mine, la fel ca si pentru “redusii” astia de shipibo totul se reduce la energie si vibratie si tare mi-a fost  mirarea sa observ energia online-ului, in urma articolului scris de Lavinia pentru Republica si a share-ului facut de Radu F. Constatntinescu pe pagina lui. Cu cresterea survenita asa, deodata, am primit un numar impresionant de mesaje. Mesaje ca mesaje dar energia mintilor rumegand acelasi subiect cam in acelasi interval de timp a miscat o energie in Univers. Nu ma asteptam, dar mi s-a parut extrem de interesant! Energia asta a oamenilor care s-au gandit cu precadere la bani m-a facut sa reactionez si cum Aris isi doreste sa devina surfer de pe vremea cand privea cu orele surferii in Chile, am decis ca ultimii bani ce-i avem sa-i “spargem” pe o placa de surf.

Ne facem surferi! Nu sunt innebunit dupa apa, adica imi place dar sarea imi da o senzatie naspa. Sunt un pic gay, cum ar spune Carla, cand e vorba de apa de ocean dar asta e!  Asa ca dupa sedinta de shopping ne-au mai ramas 100 de dolari ce-i tinem pentru fructe. Asa ca stau cu copiii si ma bucur sa-i vad cum cresc clipa de clipa, ma bucur sa vad in fiecare zi un rasarit cu Lavinia de mana, pe plaja cu un ristretto si o tigara pe care argentinienii o numesc “el manianero” si sa scriem cu urechile la ocean si cu gandul in Univers.

Asa ca se anunta o saptamana de surf, soare, plaja, dragoste,fructe si scris. Fara bani, sau ma rog cu foarte putini bani!

Acum pot sa va intreb si eu; luna va este plina de fericire cu momente de tristete sau este trista cu momente de fericire?

Si, cam cat cheltuiti pentru asta?

Cred ca v-ati prins, fericirea nu are ca si raspuns o cifra! 🙂
