Meditation in a full house of my life

with 7 comments

Yesterday we went for a two hours trip in the forest. What I hate during weekends is when we have to have a lunch at 12.00 and my wife makes a whole philosophy conserning the timinig and to express a modest doubt in her words, it basicly means fasting. So, I suggested that since the lunch was already prepared by my mother in law, we should take it into the forest and eat it there. We all agreed and we spend really beutiful time together.

In times like this it makes me think. Years ago I usually took hours and hours for contemplative walks into the forest. I also used to meditate for hours every day, but nowdays when I have so much things to do in my life, I just don’t have time to devide my time of tranquil meditation from a busy stressful time at work. But I’m not complaining at all! Actually I belive it’s much better like that and this is the purpose of meditation, to find peace in mind and then act accordingly.

To meditate alone and experience insights is great, but if you do not apply it into your everyday secular life, you’ve wasted your time. I know a person who is doing meditation for about two decades and visiting guru’s in different places of the world, but he is very intolerant to other people especially to Romas. I’ve told him that he could learn much more from an illiterate Roma then from all Gurus of the world…

  1. Offtopik tehnično vprašanje: Kater stativ in katera glava sta to? Hvala za repliko.

    Mimogrede: super poročanje, bi bilo pa lepo, da bi si kdaj vzel čas tudi za kak foto obarvan vnos (kot v starih časih) z obilnimi tehničnimi detajli. Izkušnje so dragocene 😉

  2. Hm… Kaj pa vem kak stativ uporabljam! Črn je, pa miruje! Imel sem tudi srebrnega, a se mu je noga odlomila (po 12 letih).

    Hec je v tem, da dajem veliko pozornosti na objektive, ki so vsi (razen teleobjektiva) fiksni, na full frame tipalo (eos 5D) in na DVDje, ki jih vedno pečem v dveh kopijah. Eno kopijo DVDja imam doma, drugo v službi. Če zgori Dunajska 51, bodo fotke preživele.

    Ostalo opremo uporabljam pač kot nanese. Stojalo, ki ga sedaj uporabljam je bilo glih v akciji, pa sem ga vzel. To je vsa umetnost kako izbiram stojala. Sicer pa priznam, da me v foto-opremi prekaša marsikateri mlajši ljubiteljski fotograf. Vedno sem se vprašal koliko filmov lahko poslikam, če kupim rabljeno oz. cenejše in zato imam res gore poslikanih filmov in bolj skromno opremo.

  3. Hvala, zanimivo. Fiksne objektive bi bilo lepo imeti, ampak verjetno to pomeni tudi veliko maso v foto torbi (ruzaku)?
    Nad petko pa se ne bi pritoževal, ni tako skromna oprema, heh.

  4. res. trogam 20mm, 28mm f 1:1,8; 35mm f1:2, 50 macro, 85mm f 1:1,8 in zoom 70 – 200mm.

    kaj češ kdor nima v glavi ima v nogah 🙂 Sicer pa če ne delaš na bojni fronti ali ultra našponane tiskovke, so zoomi le potuha za lenobo.
    he, he…

  5. Jaz imam 300 milimetrov, ker sem sramežljiv 🙂
    Uf, to mora biti kar lepa masa. Za povrh daš pa še kak softbox, da si enakomerno uravnotežen, kaj, hehe. Kako je bilo danes na FDV? Žal nisem uspel.

    ob robu: zoom je f2.8 ali f4?

    hvala za odgovor.

  6. sigma 70-200 mm f 1:2,8 – Ostale objektive pa canon. Tele še najmanj slikam.
