Newton’s Third Law

The law of karma is one of the most universal laws in Hindu philosophy. The word karma means action. The law teaches us that for every action, there is an underlying opposite reaction.

Accumulation of Karma

The law of karma governs the evolution of the soul, and it’s accumulated on three levels.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY

My photography and tips for wildlife viewing in Mexico

Photograph by the author

My love for animals and nature is deeply rooted in my life since childhood. So one day, when I found myself in the middle of the jungle, hiding between bushes and trying to capture the wild ones, there was not even a drop of surprise in my mind.

If you have had the benefit of having a pet in your childhood or adolescence, you might as well relate to this feeling. Animals teach us to love and be loyal, and they help us experience compassion and develop trust in relationships with others.

Connecting with nature is one of the most…

As humans, we are invariably dealing with conflicts.

Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it is impossible to avoid a conflict with the outer world. So, we solely try to resolve it, hoping for the best outcome.

Yet, there are those other times when the conflict does not arise from the outer world, but it grows within our minds and thoughts. …

Life Lessons

Plastic — Out. Health — In!

One day I call my mother and shock her with the following statement:

I am allergic to plastic!

Wait, what?! How come?! What happened?! — she shoots questions like piercing bullets.

Well, — I continue — Every time I have to touch something from or in plastic — a robust chest tightness begins, and it supervenes with heart palpations, sweating, and nausea. My whole body gets internally on fire. There is this feeling of anxiety. My hands start shaking, and I’m turning sick at it. …

Three and a half years ago, my boyfriend and I embarked on a world trip. Nothing was planned, except our big dreams to travel the world.

Our story goes up like this:

He called me one day inviting me to meet up in Paris. We were apart for a while, but when I heard his voice there were no second thoughts. I bought my ticket train from Amsterdam to Paris in a heartbeat and ran out to catch up on the last train.

When we met, everything was sweet as candy topper fireworks, and luckily, it continues to get even…

One of my biggest passions is wildlife photography. Ever since this hobby of mine advanced, our world trip began spinning around wildlife viewing.

After our two months journey around Baja California, we headed to the mainland — Mexico. Our second stop was Mazunte — a small village known for its natural architecture, preserved nature, and diverse species.

My point of attraction? Crocodiles in their natural habitat!

Where was I supposed to see them? La Ventanilla — a small village on the Pacific coast. Home to the indigenous people of Mexico and a beautiful beach and lagoon rich in biodiversity. …
