munich's museums

what to do on a rainy sunday in munich? well, it is always a good idea to visit one of the many munich's museums. the state owned museums provide a reduced entry fee for only 1 euro per person on sundays, so it is also not expensive, my dears :-)

bayerisches nationalmuseum (bavarian national museum):

however, i wanted to write this blog post last year as we visited the residenz museum with friends (that nice guided historical tour was a birthday gift for me) and the völkerkunde-museum with my wife + eldest daughter within few weeks. we also tried to visit the bavarian national museum with my wife, but it was a nice sunny day, so we just made many pictures from outside and continued to walk in the nearby english gardens at the river isar. today we finally managed to visit the national museum from inside, too :-)
  • residenz (residence of the bavarian kings) ~ pictures see below
  • völkerkundemuseum about nations around the world - the (only) nice parts were polynesia/micronesia and the special exhibition about myanmar, so we decided to visit myanmar this year ~ pictures see below
  • lange nacht der museen - at the long night of munich's museum we especially visited the beer museum and a guided historical tour through the old city center
  • nymphenburg castle accommodates especially paintings + the nearby educative men & nature (children) museum (mensch & natur), where we were really often with our daughters when they were small
  • MVG museum (public transportation) is the new home of the gold & silver show edelmetallmesse
  • BMW museum ~ more pictures coming soon?
  • bayerisches nationalmuseum (bavarian national museum), enjoy few pictures:
völkerkundemuseum (08/2016):

  • auf der langen bank sitzen
  • tafelsilber
  • alles in butter
  • usw

sadhguru on life & more

there are many people in the world asking what is life about, why are they here, what is karma (vs. free choice), what is next and so on ... if you asked me, sadhguru really has the talent to put it straight and in really funny way => highly recommended :-)

you can follow him on facebook or at his isha foundation in order to learn more about many interesting topics in (spiritual) life and/or get practical advice on many things which can you help in your daily life

ENJOY few quotes/videos:
“Too many people are hungry not because there is dearth of food. It is because there is dearth of love and care in human hearts.” —Sadhguru

The unfortunate reality in the world is, most people will know peace only with #death. It is time you do something about it in #life. - Sadhguru

Our Environment is Our Life
what about few short videos? 
#1sadhguru on fear

#2 (miracle of life, breathing, most important thing in life is to be alive, to live as a joyful human being, try to stop breathing, ... i hope i will find this short+funny video, too). you know what? here is a video with similar message:

#3 ten quotes

#4 sadhguru on marriage, intelligence hijacked by hormones, children (20-year-project), ...

#5 sadhguru on joy and happiness

#6 sadhguru on karma, especially on this moment's karma

#7 sadhguru on bhagavad gita

as you see, in some way or the other way, i'm still influenced by our last year's india journey

more from sadhguru / sadguru / sad guru (? not really, he is a real optimist if you asked me) coming soon or never :-)

wer waffen liefert, sät krieg und erntet terror (und flüchtlinge)

heather marsh - destruction of society & nation states

my dear readers, i would like to present heather marsh and her great socio-critical GeorgieBC's Blog to you today. i've subscribed to it long time ago and do read her articles with pleasure. well, not all of them because they are sometimes quite long, but from time to time :-). does someone still remember her blog about Worl War III reposted here in 2014?

source: wikipedia

find here two articles i liked a lot recently:
  • The destruction of society ~ [cite] The erasure of value from women’s work was necessary for the enslavement of women. The enslavement of women was necessary for outside ownership of their bodies, the factories producing the labour force.[cite] ... [cite] trade economy ... The division of men and women was the most important class division ... women in medieval Europe as they were the keepers of medicinal knowledge and the medical practitioners ... Between the twelfth and the seventeenth centuries, the witch hunt which raged over Europe and the Americas killed untold numbers of women and indigenous healers who practiced medicine or had medical knowledge at the same time that the institution of all male professional medicine was being established ... Traveling healers were replaced by traveling priests and professional doctors ..... The Inquisition was not, as it is depicted today, an attack against men of science, it was an attack for and by men of science. [cite]
pictures from easter march for peace, medieval arts in munich
  • There are no nation states ~ tribal land ... [cite] Tribal loyalty to their own land and people is the biggest obstacle to those who would exploit that land. The primary enemy of corporations everywhere is indigenous people. People with land and strong tribal bonds do not need money which is just an artificial, dissociated form of societal approval. Tribes already have their own source of approval in each other and that approval is contingent on them staying with their tribe and fighting for their land. There are still battles fought all over the world to sever or weaken any ties people still hold to their own land and their own nations, to somehow force or trick them into leaving their land and then destroy any chance they ever have of returning. 
To remove power from families and nations and install a state governance system of law and corporate dependency, communities around the world were dismantled. Besides efforts to move, murder, terrorize or starve out indigenous communities, there has been a great deal of social destruction caused by state institutions such as schools and churches. [cite] ... [cite]The task of the trade economy has been not only to break the bonds between the humans in each society but also to uproot the society itself from any connection to its surroundings. .... While nations can be transplanted or migrate to other territories, nations which are pulled from their ecosystems and made to live as landless workers in the trade economy immediately begin to dissociate from each other as they begin to rely on state or corporate institutions to meet their needs. Once people no longer have land, they are at the mercy of the trade economy and they have no choice but to use currency as a dissociated form of approval. ....  Nations are people, states are corporations. Nations create Us, states create the Other. [cite]
more coming soon or never :-)
