Maybe you don’t yet know that I’m fascinated in Australia. Today I’ve listened and read about Aborigines culture for the first time. There are some points regarding Aboriginal Peoples Heritage I would like to stay with me.

Take care of Mother Earth. Every piece of nature is our family.

Be consciouswhen you see a tree. A rock. A mountain. A butterfly. Respect the tree. Don’t exploit. Use only as much as you really need.

Like nature. Walk often.

Don’t eat alone. Always share.

So beautiful. It means continued consciousness of the fact that everyone is a part of a community.

No lone eating to the tv screen.

Relation. Contact. Being together.


Don’t carry food that you’ve started to eat. Eat the whole meal in one place.

Consciousness and mindfulness again. Slow life. Slow food.

When you deal with the most important thing – nourishing your body – nothing can be more important at this moment. Distractions are bad and senseless. And so stupid.

Make eating uncomplicated. We don’t have to process good food!

Let’s allow ourselves to live simply. Simple clothing, simple meals. An apple, an usual, basic soup.

Material possessions are unnecessary. Don’t care about them, don’t get addicted to them.

Minimalism and not even knowing what consumerism could mean.

You already have everything you need to be happy.

Just live. Look around yourself.

Love. Be here. Be now.
