Take the red pill and stay in Wonderland

... stay in Wonderland and see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

I'm trying to stay away from the rat race of the Matrix. I personally define the Matrix as a set of beliefs, cultural norms, attitudes, and conditioned states which are prevalent throughout society.

I don't watch TV, don't follow sports, don't read newspapers; I despise politics and politicians, don't vote for any party; I don't go for social gatherings, don't walk for cancer cure, don't rush to save the trees, the bees, the whales.

It took me a long time to admit that I don't like to travel. In fact, I'm pretty close to saying I hate it. For years I said I liked it without really thinking about it, because I had the vague sense that it was part and parcel of being an educated, intelligent person. Right now I'm pretty sure that I'm not so intelligent so I can freely say if I have to travel, it mostly feels like punishment.

I do travel, of course. I enjoy things like seeing family and friends, and if that involves travel, then fine. I can cope with the horror of flying for the fun of visiting my home country.

I like to get out of my condo. I like day trips and walking because I am so happy to be back to home at night. I don't like overnight trips - two days of activities and one night in a strange bed. I can't stand it.

I see no excitement seeing new places especially cities. I have never been and I'll never be in London, Paris, Rome, New York, Los Angeles, etc.. I don't have a wish to visit Las Vegas; Exploring streets, wandering though city, checking out the restaurants, museums, zoos... it's all bullshit.

So what I'm doing...

I'm starting 30-day yoga intensive. 

I'll practise every day, a half primary ashtanga yoga in November. I will do yoga on Sunday's and moon days too. I'm not setting unrealistic expectations, I commit to the goal that I can accomplish.

Winter is coming I want to increase the strength, energy and well being. This isn't my first yoga intensive. In October last year I have done the same thing.

The core of the 30 day challenge is a commitment. It means a promise to myself and following through on it. It means stepping out from the Matrix, breaking the laziness and old wimpy excuses. It means 60 minutes yoga sweating each day.

It means going to bed very early, around 9 pm, and getting up early, at 5 am. It means slowing down other tasks; It means changing the priorities and do the thing which others consider less important.

It calls for a simple life.
