100 questions ...

… that are continuously around…. Not sure about being the right ones, the relevant ones, not even those we are about to receive the answers to. Or are we? Is not it the case that we know the answers quite well, though are not ready to accept them?

Ahhh… questions, questions, questions…. again…

Why are there so many questions in our head? Why is it so necessary to find answers? And why do most of our questions start with “why”? Does it really have a relevance ‘why’? 

If we accept that questions are the fundamentals of development, does it apply to human relationships, too?

Last weeks of the summer ...

… so enjoy the sun, but prepare for the colder breeze over the night. 

You can still be stylish, either being on a beach vacation or in the city. 

Beige is still the star color of the season, though combined with different others from the light greens, berries to the blues and greys. 

Gold and creamy accessories are a perfect fit. 

Do you like them?

Religion

Buddhism: yellow has the highest symbolic value in Buddhism through its link with the saffron robes of monks. This color, previously worn by criminals, was chosen by Gautama Buddha as a symbol of his humility and separation from materialist society. Saffron yellow thus signifies renunciation, desirelessness, and humility. It is the color of earth, thus a symbol of rootedness and the equanimity of the earth.

Christianity: yellow is representative of “Greed” in.
