People (including the writer) are used to do something driven by the desire to achieve an upper goal.. its very rare that someone does something for the joy of it, with no motives hidden behind that. This is a habitual approach to life for most of us, is it not?

People have yoga in order to achieve an attractive figure instead of having yoga because they enjoy this delicate art. They approach other people in order for socialization, for avoiding the sense of loneliness, instead of just approaching people for the joy of relating. Continue reading →

We run.. we are in a hurry.. we run to catch the bus, or a deadline.. we run in order to be on time for a coffee rendezvous.. we eat our breakfast while we are watching a TV show, we are driving while we listen to music, we watch a cinema movie while eating popcorn and a refreshment. We avoid having a walk when its possible to get from one place to another sooner by means of public transport. Its a sunny day and we have the opportunity of enjoying a great bike ride and we decide to push ourselves in order to combine the ride with some aerobial exercise, we are doing a job task while having an important phone call in order to arrange another task.. we are cooking mechanically, trying to finish the cooking process as soon as possible! We are running.. we are trying to complete as many tasks as possible in the minimum of time. All these is not a silly idea of the writer, its a fact. See it! Continue reading →
