Light, Shiva and Kabbalah

Today, I finally overcame that brick-wall / that thing that has held me back...

Ganesh did not visit me this time, yet I dreamt again about Shiva and Light...

I've found by pure chance an alternative answer. Something that Hinduism has not yet offered.

Shiva is a stage of ritual mourning in Judaism, during which a candle is lit.

My dream then seems to refer to mourning a death. Perhaps the death of my previous incarnation.

Taken in a Jewish, Kabbalistic approach that doesn't refer to a pervious life... but rather an older version of self.
I know for sure that since that first dream, full of challenges to overcome, I have felt a greater sense of peace and acceptance.

I was reincarnated, not reborn but I grew as a person and entered a new phase of my life.

I like the sound of that, nothing too drastically life changing... And yet still, how did I ever dream of things that I had no knowledge of?

Land of orange.

Hello, yes... I am back!!

I've dabbled and trialed and tested lots of different creative hobbies and crafts. I think I've finally found my callings... plural! I didn't see how these diverse things could co-exist in harmony, but here in Thailand, I've finally figured out how. :)

That's right! I've finally made it to Thailand, land of the orange clad monks. Fate finally saw my point of view.

I don't promise to post often, but you'll certainly be hearing from me again. If you do miss me, then come over to 'The Nude Jew' to get a taste of my life in Thailand for yourself.

A small detour!? *Updated: 24th October*

I am not back yet, I still have a long way to go before I can even think about meditation.

I am learning about myself and trying to improve myself in different ways!
One way is in my skills and passions... so I've started a new site, will be focusing on one aspect of my life over there. When I'm ready, I'll be back on here!!

See you there?

Time off...

For the first time in nearly four months I sat down and thought for myself today...

and this is what I realised. I want to take an extended break from blogging!
I haven't truely relaxed in all that time. I haven't switched off and resolved things, rather I have ignored them.

So dear readers, I shall see you again three months from today, safe journeys on the middle path.

...too bored to blog!

Well, I have a list of ideas for posts for all my blogs.
Problem is I am too busy, tired, hot, sticky and bored to blog!

I keep trying to overcome this feeling, that desire to create is building...
But it isn't strong enough just yet.

I've recently made some video blogs (vlogs) to add a new level, a more personal touch and modern side to one of my blogs, it also makes blogging easier!
Right now, I don't even have the drive to record and upload a new one.

I guess we all get these lazy/wasted days!? Even Shiva, Buddha and Mahavira must have had days where the willing spirit was weighed down by the heavy-tired body!?

Holidays are nice, but that post-holiday lethargy has won this time.

Perhaps I will feel more like my eager blogger-self next week.
Until then, happy slobbing!

Nude Yoga & Naked Meditation

I get a lot of visitors to the site searching for Nude Yoga and Naked Meditation, or similar.
I expect that those people feel somewhat disappointed on arriving here!

Perhaps the name of the blog is misleading, and my previous references to the above.

So I wrote this post, to aid you in what you are searching for...
That is after all the real purpose of this blog, to help people find what they are seeking.

The only nudity on this site is reference to Jain and Hindu holy men who do so for enlightenment.

That said, I have since started another blog page, The Nude Geek, which is about naturism and nudism. Something which I have come to accept and fully support, thanks to Jainism.

Ok, here is just one link for all aspiring nude yogis: - Has a variety of levels, with videos for men and women.

Another good place for all things nudist, with links to more nude yoga sites is

Hope this helps!

No travel-zen!

I hate travel! The process of it makes me feel sick. . .  it is the one thing I cannot overcome. The more I do it, the worse it gets. I know Indonesia is a deeply religious country, but having the main prayer of all it's major religions tucked into the safety instruction card does not reassure me. Well, I didn't need it this time!
