In addition, you will find information here on things local to Calgary and Canada that allows one to truly experience the "local-ness" of one's place of living.
In Ayurveda (under the Vedic Wisdom blog), this is very key- this awareness and being in-sync with our own local environment is key to feeling in-sync with our earth and humanity at large!
For the casual reader, this may seem like a nice travel blog- hey, enjoy reading and all the photos- after all, the Canadian Rockies are one of world's most scenic spots, so it will be beautiful reading for sure.
What else will you find here?- tips and ideas on green living. Small ways in which one can reduce, reuse and recycle in their life to go from a "stuff oriented" way of living to a simple, minimalist and comfortable natural lifestyle.
There is a myth with people- that natural, minimalist living involves being gaunt looking, with hippie hair-style and speaking about "goofy foods". That is not the case at all... not that there is anything against being gaunt-looking and hippie hair. But, one can continue to look their natural body type (plump and chubby), be very professional looking and still be living a happy, contented natural lifestyle.
In addition, while being a mystic- I very much like everyone else, have a "daily existence". Even though I try to live as not of this world- but I very much have an "in this world" existence. Like everyone else- I have a job to do, money to earn, taxes to pay and run into all the nice-ness of good people and "craziness of morons" around us!
Thru learning, trial and error- I have found ways in which to deal with each interaction in my life- to bring out it's highest purpose in my life and to learn and grow from it. As much as possible I try to make it a great interaction for all involved. This site will also provide my experiences and ways that I have tired to enjoy/resolve such day-to-day scenarios.
So, this blog will also explain how such external "things" i.e. habits, behaviors and patterns affect one's well-being and what are some alternatives which can be tried to be in "one-ness" while also continuing to live a modern life.
