Goodbye 2021

Whether the day is going well or not, when you lay your head on the pillow in the evening, bittersweet memories of the day fly through your tired mind.

There would be a moment, you get stuck on one of these details, you dive into it, and you drown. Lots of other details similar to this call you to themselves too. You immediately run to them and manipulate one after another. You turn left and right in your bed.

Somewhere far away, vague sparks of hope wait for breath, to froth. If you inhale them deeply, the fire of peace will warm every particle of your body. You fall into a sweet sleep. You wake up fresh and calm to the new day in the morning. You are better than yesterday. Tomorrow will be even better…

Our world revolves around itself; it becomes day, becomes night. Revolves around the sun; it becomes spring, summer, and winter. It becomes the year with its breeze, storm, cold, and warmth.

O nizami! You turn around yourself; then you become the evolution, the maturity, the gratitude. You revolve around the world; then, you become the experiencing, the learning, and the evolving. Sometimes, you become the pain, the regret, the guilt, the anger… Who knows, you become the understanding and the forgiving? Every moment makes a new you.

Which ones rotate and flow, the world and the time or you?!  You are surprised!

How beautiful was the success, the joy, the happiness! How excellent was it to breathe, love, live… Hey beauties, come with me, stand by me always, and add new ones to yourselves… Goodbye, old pains, anxieties, guilts, regrets, anger… Stay where you are. O past! It does not matter how you taught me; thank you very much for everything.

O nizami! Let the calm and lively morning refreshment surround you as you reach out to the new year after the tiring days of this December. Bid farewell to the old year with gratitude, and welcome the new year with happiness, health, new hopes.

Let's raise the anchor
from the port of despair
Let's set sail
to loving hearts
from the ocean of magnificence

Goodbye 2021, hello 2022…

Bean Technique in Time Management

We are not aware of how much time we spend on idle activities. It must not be nice to understand how we dissipate precious and limited time when we put our heads on the pillow in the evenings. When we evaluate the months, years, and all life, we may feel the burden of whatever we want to do but cannot do. Not to regret tomorrow, we desire to take on the reins of our life as soon as possible without being caught up in the sweet wind of distractions and to engage in functional activities. But how will we do that? With the idea of further ​​facilitating my self-control, I developed a technique I called the bean technique, inspired by what James Clear described in his book Atomic Habits. I took two tea plates and put six beans in one. Six beans represent 6 hours of proper use, each for one hour. Throughout the day, for every hour I use for the activities I aim for, I take off a bean from the full plate and put it into the other one that starts empty in the morning. netsentez My goal is to

Non-Judgmental Witness: Transcendent Self/Core Self

We wander through the past, now, and future dimensions of time. The now/moment is the place we avoid the most, which is why we are deprived of many things. From love, peace, tranquility…in short, from life… Some say that the now/moment is a beyond-time sacred space and eternal. They say that pain, suffering, and sorrow are caused by wandering over the bad memories of the past and worrying about the future, sleeping with them, and getting up with them. These are true; I sense them more than I believe; I experience them. The divine transcendent self can only be felt in the holy and eternal now. Our view of the past from now is not in the conditions of those times but through the eyes of the present. We often reconstruct or distort the past. We regret, blame ourselves, and suffer, saying that I wouldn't have done that if I had the current mind. Although we are wiser(!) now, we imagine the future mixed with anxieties and fears, as we are conditioned by the loser's and guilt's p

Meditation - Mindfulness Breath

Finally, I found meditation as a way to get rid of overthinking obsessions and similar annoyances. I also recommend it to those who are dealing with such problems. I was born in 1961. My student and professional life coincided with the turbulent times of my country, Turkey. It had been difficult for me to maintain my psychological balance among people who blindly believe stereotypical norms of their groups instead of general morality and ethics. Working without entering the magnetic range of any group brought about interpersonal conflicts. There were many times when I was overwhelmed and looked for a peaceful corner to escape. Finally, I retired in 2002 without severe loss. When I look back, I see many successful projects together with interpersonal conflicts. As I stepped into my pleasant corner and dreamed of a peaceful life, the troubles and memories I had in the past started to disturb me. I once reflected my mood in my diary like this: "Because of the
