Midway through an anticipated 6 months tenure in the silent Krakow suburb of Zielonki, potential potential customers are starting to be clearer.
On standard, deeper reflection, my heart and head are guiding me in a specific way. The prolonged time period plan is organically evolving, with no forcing nearly anything.
Vacation ideas for 2019 are getting form. Two months, generally company, again in India, my second 10-day Vipassana silent meditation, and a few months in Sri Lanka for a friend’s marriage ceremony.
At this stage, I’m not sure what follows. It could certainly be any place.
All Signals are Pointing to New Zealand
A close confidante and fellow disruptor not too long ago inspired me to check out New Zealand faster than later on, and “see what they’ve been up to”. There are several individual explanations and function alternatives that would adequately served in NZ, including 50 % my loved ones.
Editing and fine tuning my System Sea book has been a useful physical exercise. I now see the goal of this total 12 months and a 50 percent journey, reflected on with emotions in my heart, backed by the frequent thoughtfulness of my head, top to coming frontiers.
With no real feeling of residence, and no place to go, all over the place is an selection. Lately savoring my flavor of settled down everyday living in a loving property, impressed by extensive-bubbling inspiration driving latest creations, I’m prepared to move in direction of far more of that.
1 place I’ve in no way lived is New Zealand – my father’s region. I expended 12 a long time in mother’s Canada, Melbourne for a different dozen, and grew up in Singapore – 15 several years.
With Brexit looming, and escalating, uncomfortable suitable-vs-left hostilities in Europe, I really don’t assume the United kingdom – my birthplace – or Europe are practical, beyond summer visits. Very little interest in North The united states by any means.
New Zealand is remote – one particular of the disadvantages for a frequent traveler, but also a gain for a tranquil everyday living. However near to lively Asia-Pacific capitals. NZ is gorgeous, risk-free, tranquil, humble. I’m impressed with the way of the new government, led by the dynamic, progressive, Jacinda Ardern.
Having the gradual way close to the earth to get there, but, around the change of 2020, I expect to be in New Zealand. A slow creating up of roots, an eventual home of my incredibly own, one particular to grow for the relaxation of my life.
In the scenario of a possible social apocalypse, New Zealand is just about the safest location on the planet.
Initiative Q is a mainstream revenue plan
The week was highlighted by the publishing of my initially short article on Medium.
Enraged by the pyramid scheme marketing and advertising campaign of a faraway foreseeable future payment procedure and hundreds of thousands of gullible blind followers, I composed a exclusive characteristic, “Is Initiative Q a Rip-off? Dollars is a Scam”.
The piece documents my prolonged-held apathy in direction of the con of the wider dollars earth, though breaking down Initiative Q’s dodgy promises, which consist of enriching each individual subscriber with all over $100,000 in a couple decades.
When you dig further, you will see Q’s impetus is as a result of discrediting Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. The hypocrisy is in Q’s implies of working with cryptocurrency and reserving ERC-20.
Blockchain know-how was created as a reaction to central controls, which include corrupt establishments these as governments, financial institutions and many corporations.
We don’t will need a marginally more improved version of PayPal – society requirements a total new mentality, not governed by patriarchy or hindered by income. The Initiative Q plan post touches this in depth. Lower transaction charges are not the point.
The damaged dollars earth and the patriarchal quest for electrical power will be the root result in of any social collapse – a little something that is coming in the following year or two. Initiative Q is a irritating but strong instance of how minimal we have fallen.
As a internet marketing gimmick, it is excellent.
Start the Day with Good News
Each and every and each individual day, the first web site I check out is Favourable Information.
This mainly feminine workforce, of journalists and editors, appears at the positives in the globe and the information, a refreshing break from the majority of information and facts we’re battered with.
I put up a great deal of it on GASHE, to aid harmony out some of the significantly less pleasant experiences from around the earth men and women have to be knowledgeable of. Aspect of the responsibility of consciousness is sharing what you know, or go on to query what is happening.
If you nonetheless will need to just take a split from it all, I extremely suggest Vipassana meditation. It’s everyday living changing.

Plan Sea Guide Update
Previously this week, I despatched out the 1st-at any time publication to the (little) Plan Sea book mailing record. I up-to-date subscribers with a gist of the complete vacation that started in June 2017.
I also unveiled the probable official launch date: February 28 or March 1, 2019. We’ll probably be in Goa, India.
This is like a pseudo-February 29 – the date I introduced my initial e book in 1996, and Mother.Domains (formally) much more not long ago in 2016. I come across something enticingly magical about this day.
If you want an progress copy of System Sea, the page will be readily available in the subsequent couple of months. We’ll have a minimal version hardcover version, paperbacks, and e-Books. All pre-orders will acquire their copies before every person else, and an exceptional, progress e-Book if preferred. Possibly even some preview chapters 🙂

That’s all for the week, when new adventures loom
One more silent week forward below in Krakow, highlighted by the upcoming Krakow Digital Nomads satisfy up, and a TEDx communicate on the scorching topic of air air pollution in Poland.
Just after that, lifestyle will get exciting once again. We head on a week-extended highway trip to Cologne and Berlin. Catching up and brainstorming with aged pals, then a David August live performance. Quite possibly Maribou Point out.
Not considerably time remaining in 2018, meaning a few of more tranquil and productive months, prior to lifetime receives crazy yet again. It could extremely effectively be insane till landing in New Zealand.
Appears to be like like a little something significant to announce in the next week or two.
Appreciate your weekend 🙂
