What is school

Watching the past times brought back to life, watching the kids dressed up like in the old times... I wonder who loved learning more...

Is going to school nowadays a privilege or burden? Is it a joy or a modern torture?

Do we cherish the gift of learning or not?

School is so much more than just a school. It is a box of knowledge, mystery, excitement, interesting stories that can help us grow, full of teachers as role models, school-friends as social network to challenge our emotions and believes, pleasant or unpleasant environment, noisy and calming moments, freedom and limitations. 

School is so much more than it was years ago, but we get stuck focusing on little things and get lost before noticing how many oportunities we can find in school for learning and experiencing great lessons for life.

How about if we start this school-year differently? Let's step back, learn from the past and look at the school from a distance to see the whole picture, to see the greater meaning of school - all of us: the kids, the teachers and the parents.

Enjoy the journey and keep calm!

Modern meditation

Today is a special day. A perfect day for meditation, for inner peace and for thinking about harmony. Will you spend some time listening to your inner Self?

Transient

We don't have to be all alone in a monestery or a church to meditate. We can do it wherever we are - in the middle of the street, next to our friends or family, when hiking in the mountains... If you practice to 'switch off' wherever you are, then a place for a meditation can be found anywhere and whenever you feel like it.

Christmas is a good day for meditation. It's a good day to polish the soul and stop the world.

Today I am thankful for a time for meditation, a time for inner peace and stillness.  

Question #15:

What's your favourite way to stop 'your' world and listen to your inner peace?
