as I am back in working from my gap year, sort of
anyway it’s tough to say I when speaking about uncoiling your own role of the big game (aka ‘swadharma’)
I have had a reading a couple of month ago in fact with a really good karma astrologer
Huna / Jedi Trainer wiki available here
Myself I had mostly sex (yes ladies) related dreams. Albeit they weren’t fully lucid. I suppose that’s simply spring knocking on my subconscious doors.
Dream on folks,
... and I am still stick with Deepak Chopra’s Sychnronicity thing.
So, this is done!
I had a few great experiences at the beginning now it is less appearent in my everdays, but maybe I’ll have to adjust a few things to get it better working for me.
(OK, a bit of whining, just for the sake of it!)
I was so sicko for the past 6 weeks that I did not even compete. Where’s all my training efforts went (two times powerendurance + 1-2 times bouldering)?
I am climbing in series now. Twice a week I go to a local quarry (Franciabanya – French Quarry), with a friend and we do the pyramid stuff. 3 – 3 – 2 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 3. The routes are Létra (Ladder) VI-, Inkvizició (Inquisition) VII-, Y (Ypsilon) VII(/VIII- in respective order.
It sounds dull, but I guarantee you it works.
Beside this I do some power training to keep up (pull ups, push ups and belly presses) twice a week.
Will see in the winter season if it did help or not!
And next Summer, I’ll do one arm pull up(s)!
Yes, sales and life can be viewed as a never ending negotiation stream.
It came naturally with my new job where a good part is about mediating and trying to make sure I/we (the company I work for) does not get screwed.
I already feel a bit empowered. I think it works for me still to read about things I am working on.
(The book I have just read is from Chester L. Karrass)
Got a lot tighter schedule for reading these weeks. (All my colleages/teammates are going to have their holidays, save me!)
Anyway, there are 2 books I am reading for the 2nd week.
Issue #1 is a Rudolf Steiner batch article edited in one book. It is all about past human happenings and once big secrets (From the Akasha Chronicle).
Issue #2 is a great work from Marcell Jankovics. I love the archetypical highlighting it gives with regards to the Pagan Christianity cultural background.
Read on, folks,
We have got some good climbing recently with Bela my friend.
Twice a week we are going to Franciabanya (obscured quarry up hill in Budapest). Climbing laps on a 8-10 meteres high rock face. I am doing an easy pyramid of 3+3 on Létra (Ladder, VI- or 5c or 5.9) 3+3 on Inkvizicio (Inquisition, VIImin. or 6a+ or 5.10a) then 3 of Ypsilon (Y, VII+ or 6b+ or 5.10c).
Bela is doing only 2+2 on Inquisition and 1 Y. Only 1 Ladder and 1 Y is climbed on lead the rest can be top-ropped (for speed).
Today we have done the full set of laps in 58 minutes from first tye-in to tye-out.
Friday night I am raising the bar (1 more Y and 1 more route which has a name lost in the wind and is rated VIIImin. or 6c+ or 5.11a).
I already feel myself empowered!
Don’t stop walking, dudes and girls…
I think, sometimes it worths to procrastinate a bit.
Like doing things that should not be done and else.
Also, if you do things more acurately and you are willing to go the road less traveled and then lay back and just let them happen. Suddenly you will realize, you have no need for postponing things.
There will be days, when you go to bed knowing you have not finished a few things, but will be happy with it.
Take care and do not let your thoughts roll over you,
That’s what I try to get in tune with. Every morning and sometimes at night as well.
If I will be still doing it in September, I will consider this goal done.
If you happened to be my reader. Don’t be embarrased if you can’t find my blogs (Expatanchor.net and Dezsopapp.com).
Not that I’d blogged at all in the last two weeks or so. A few started but unfinished logs, but that’s it.
Ok, folks I got a big secret to uncover now…
Are you ready. Count down, 3, 2, 1…
Regular job pays but takes away your free time. At least if you can do it with full heart!
Expect me back in the colder time. Latest by mid-November.
Just got my hosting plan suspended, as I did not have enough on my bank account. (Using cash these weeks).
Thus, I wanted to share my last/current reading experiences.
There is a really good book about the real calendar. The one that helps you realize that life is about circular activities. Seeds planted, blooming, growing, dying and rebirth. Amazing analogic discoveries about Christianity built on Astrology and such. The book I am talking about is written by Marcell Jankovics and is named Symbol – Calendar.
The other great book in my armpit is Pawel Huelle’s Mercedes-Benz, Letters to Hrabal. It is a great Polish (Polski) answer to the Zen and the art of Motorcycle maintenance, with a twist. It indeed reflects on Hrabal’s motorbike driving lessons memoirs.
So, get yourself down on that couch and read that book, now!
The next entry ticked off from my list [still mono-lingual in Hungarian] was Siddharta, from Herman Hesse. Unfortunately, in an abridged audio book.
I don’t recommend you going for abridged versions especially for metaphysical issues. Don’t let anybody chew your gum!
The next issue was a Hungarian translation of Eliphas Lévi’s: The Dogma of High Magic, part 1. First, it seemed a total miss. As soon as I have wrenched through the 40 pages Introduction – stuffed with notes on XIX.th century French historical facts and prominent – I was hooked. Basically, it goes through “the Major Arcana”: of the Tarot. Giving a detailed overview of the same – although only for advanced and open readers.
It gave me another opportunity to restart my Tarot discoveries and occasional spreads.
The first book I have started to read. A few hours after the imaginary start has been launched. I am talking about The Magic of Everyday Life from Maria Szepes. She is a long standing figure of the Hungarian/Budapest esoteric circles. Also, she is the most famous writer in this genre.
I am half way through the book, that is not a novel. Rather a how-to kind of book, rewritten from an earlier essay. My primary concern is with her style. She writes with loads of adjectives, that makes it somewhat baroquesque.
At places though she really conveys something unique.
This is not a stub or a review so get your copy on your list and read for yourself. (I think it was published in German, as well).
I used to love reading but I was doing bad for a while now. Finally, yesterday I have started to put together a list of 100 books to read in the coming year.
Got the idea from Sean at Psychotactics.com. You can read my list (sorry, but it is mainly in Hungarian) here
Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I have recorded this (guitar only) piece with a Yamaha acoustic guitar, on my laptop (then an IBM thinkpad).
Let me know if you have any comments!
I was Dezso
Had a brief climbing session yesterday. 50 km west of Budapest, in Kis-Gerecse quarries. We only tried one route on the impressive overhanging (6 meters on 15 at its max) Main Wall, aptly named “Rain Wall”. The warm up VIII+ (7a+ or 5.11d/5.12a) was soaking wet thus we have set on the thugish starter and thin finger crack ending Metamorphosis IX- (7b+ or 5.12b or c).
Didn’t do good at all! Could not even top rope it.
We have agreed with Csabi, that we have to follow the training regime presricbed by Tódi, and let our fingers get used to our new forz step-by-step.
This Tuesday I was attending to a show as a guest in my favorite radio station. RadioCafé98,6 in Budapest, Hungary. The show was the Legal Alien with Jennifer Graf and Mark McMenemy – on air between 8 and 9 p.m.
Here’s my first report on the gig
