Sunday Escape vol.20

Hello Çuval lover,

It’s a beautiful day in Istanbul; sunny with a little breeze, hopefully not much traffic due to winter break for schools – a perfect day for me to take my Çuval bags out in woods on this beautiful Sunday and daydream in sweet nature on where to travel next.

In the meantime enjoy your Sunday with few musings you may enjoy below...

Something to read

In The Book of Disquiet I find some kind of relief as words speaks for some of my feelings.

Here is a quote from Fernando Pessoa's work about "dreaming" :
“I’ve dreamed a lot. I’m tired now from dreaming but not tired of dreaming. No one tires of dreaming, because to dream is to forget, and forgetting does not weigh on us, it is a dreamless sleep throughout which we remain awake. In dreams I have achieved everything.”


about dayreaming

“Although daydreaming is generally used as a negative characteristic, you can use this technique to your advantage. Daydreaming not only boosts your creativity and problem-solving skills, but it also helps you concentrate and focus on a specific task. It helps your mind wander to thoughts and areas that it might not wander if you had not set aside time for daydreaming. If used efficiently and effectively, daydreaming can be one of the most important techniques that you can use to achieve your ultimate goals”

Daydreaming help(s):

  • your mind relax
  • you manage conflict
  • you maintain relationships
  • boost productivity
  • you achieve your goals
  • you focus

learn from wathching 

If you haven't watched it yet, Gwyneth Palthrow's wellness kingdom Goop has two documentary series: The Gooplabconcentrated on psychedelics and other types of energy work and more recent Sex, Love and Goop focused more on embodiment practice and couple's therapy.
It's all about learning more about your body, sensuality, thoughts and feelings when it comes to know who you truly are and what you really want to attract to your life.
Relaxing is key to dreaming. We can only imagine from a place of freedom, joy and love. So I hope the show help you guide through to ease with yourself in your own journey.
