Qortal Web Hosting learning

Qortal Web Hosting

(May 17, 2022) Since my priority with Qortal is to develop and host a website within its blockchain, my immediate task after reading its introduction and tutorial was creating even a simple dummy website just to acclimatize its interface and features. When the website is in place, I'm sure my mind would once again be racing on what to do with Qortal next...more »»

Maria's Unsung Beaches

(Mar 11, 2023) Maria is a lesser-known municipality of Siquijor. It has beaches but no one knows about it except those intrepid adventurers who look at Google Map and explore the landmarks.

Consciousness Creates Reality? Lucid Thoughts

Consciousness Creates Reality?

(Mar 6, 2023) The more I desire an outcome, the increased likelihood it will happen. And it has, on so many occassions. I'm drawn to conclude that consciousness influences the way reality unravels. But what if we kick it up a notch? What if consciousness actually creates reality?..more »»

Hatha Yoga Pradipika Yoga Book Review

Hatha Yoga Pradipika

(Sep 8 - ?, 2022) While nearly every yogi I meet talks about Patanjali's Yoga Sutras as his/her basis for their practice (which is mostly asana), Patanjali's Sutras actually only mentions one asana - a seated pose that can be held long and comfortably. Obscured from the modern dissertation of yoga is the one book that actually focuses more about the asanas - Hatha Yoga Pradipika.....more »»
