Whose Fault Is It?

“Hmm, who messed it up?”

No matter what happens, this tends to be the first thing everyone wants to know. Who messed up, who is to blame? Entire societies seem to revolve around it, including election campaigns. Why? What do we get from knowing whose fault something is?

Also, we would like to thank our blog friend LeendaDLL for inspiring this post.

Brave complexity

Going in-depth is nice. Epecially if there are fish!

Why is it that we shy away from complexity? Understandably, clarity is nice to have. We must make assumptions, categorize things, and avoid questioning everything all the time if we want to be able to live in any functional way.

Yet it seems that in doing so, we so often miss the point entirely. Assumptions turn into world views, and the world gets separated into those who share that view and those who do not. Them and us – with them being wrong and us being right, of course!

I will take the inconvenience, thank you very much

I. I was sorting our trash for the bokashi compost when I realized why only a few households do it even if there is a long list of benefits. It is inconvenient.

Segregating the trash, cutting up the organics to size, filling the bucket, and mixing it with soil definitely takes more time than chucking the trash inside the bin and forgetting about it.

Sure, all the steps to bokashi composting are simple but it involves plenty of consciousness. Who would want that?

6 Things Yoga Teachers Want to Tell You

In 2018, I became a yoga teacher. Markus and I actually did our 200 hr yoga teacher training course together in Rishikesh, India. Needless to say, it was life- and relationship-changing. We use what we learned to further create our thriving life together and also share with others.

I practice yoga every day and know that I am first a yoga student. The learning never ends. This is the fun bit of it! And for other yogis, below is what I can share today, from one yoga teacher and student to another.

The legend of the oily passport

Who’d have thunk this could be a problem.

When I wrote my first post about travel fuck-ups, I thought that was all of them. Later, I remembered my Phuket-poisoning. But I still forgot about the big one. The mother of all travel fuck-ups, if you will. Spoiler alert: Never put your passport anywhere near liquids in your bag. Especially when those liquids happen to be coconut oil.

How to fight better for a healthy relationship

Only joking – we talk.

Fighting well is a skill. After all, even the most loving partner can be a trial to cope with from time to time. I know I am, and the longer Markus is exposed to the full range of my inadequacies, I grow more grateful everyday for his patience and diplomatic skills.

But fights are not so bad, no? When we do so in a fair and mutually supportive manner, even the worst can be a surprising source of deeper connection and a wellspring of growth for a healthy, more loving relationship. Below we share the concepts behind our conflict resolution and how we learned to fight better as a couple.
