Some news

Loads of things happen around me, week by week. I do my best to catch up with them, though it is really stressful. I got a new job, and a new flat to live in. As to my Protector Project, I submitted my manuscript’s Hungarian version for edition. I think it will be published in October. 🙂

August - September 2018

This development makes me happy, however, I feel still very far from living the life I dream of… What would it be like? Making interviews, and meetups, building the turtle shelter and selling the Wingless angels script… At least I’d like to have some rest and good sleep…

Meditation Retreat

I’ve spent fifteen days in a very special meditation retreat near a southern Taiwanese city, 10000 kilometres away from my home. We were doing karmakiller meditation for many hours each day, to help elevating ourselves, our loved ones, and the planet. I learned here that the island gave home to numerous saints and Buddhist (and non-Buddhist) masters in the past. We glimpsed shrines and temples wide around wherever we went. One could feel something sacred being present in the air… This is one of the most famous Buddhist places close to our retreat:

I saw a lot of gekkos and lizards on the walls and the trees, almost every day. They were so cute!

This one might be the same lizard but a female one (my guess)
Common house gecko – they could be seen everywhere

Our flight was pleasant with the Emirates and quite long, the whole journey took more than 25 hours: Budapest – Dubai, Dubai – Taipei, Taipei – Kaohsiung. We ordered vegan meals when booked the seats and we were happy to see they could cook for us – our food was labeled as strict vegetarian.

My fear from flying almost fully disappeared and on our way back I sat to the window. I could see huge part of Mesopotamia, the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers, and the lines of mountains as we progressed towards (and through) Asia Minor. Many of the places where I once lived lied under us… I am so grateful for the experience!
