    live here Meanwhile take a look on the launch that Saturday evening December 9th 2006 when i saw Discovery take off Posted by Torben Schmidt at 11 51 PM No comments Labels Discovery Space Shuttle Tuesday February 22 2011 Keep on walking Many before me has discovered the importance of physical exercising in a stressful situation Besides being stress reducing because of the increasing amount of endorphins serotonin and dopamine in the body and on the same time the reducing effect on the amount of the stress hormone cortisol there is also a relaxing and meditative element associated with physical exercising The conscious and active work with my respiration forces me to defocus away from the problems and concentrate on one specific task breathing I am mostly doing walking and running at the moment and at the moment especially walking contributes to the meditative element and thereby is a key to inner relaxation and balance The Danish philosopher theologian and author Soeren Kierkegaard May 5th 1813 November 11th 1855 who had a great interest in human psychology has concentrated the physical and meditative effects of walking in the following lines about walking as a problem solver and a way to make things better Above all do not lose your desire to walk every day I walk myself into a state of well being and walk away from every illness I have walked myself into my best thoughts and I know of no thought so burdensome that one can not walk away from it if one keeps on walking everything will be all right Soeren Kierkegaard s letter to his niece Jette and partly my own translation Another person who has recognised the meaning of physical activity is Forrest Gump played by Tom Hanks in the American comedy drama from 1994 Forrest realises that he has to try to make sense of his feelings for his beloved Jenny the deaths of his mother and his friend Bubba and he decides to go for a run which brings him from coast to coast across the USA and lasts for three and a half years Enjoy the following clip and think about walking running or something similar next time you encounter a new challenge it might bring you some new insight Posted by Torben Schmidt at 11 37 PM 2 comments Labels Forrest Gump Meditation Soeren Kirkegaard Walking Thursday November 18 2010 Have a haircut in a time pocket It is amazing to think of I have known my hairdresser for almost 40 years He know me and my life history better than most Entering Jørn Sten Hansen s saloon is like stepping into a time pocket Even though more than 40 years has passed since Jørn opened his saloon back in 1967 not much has changed If it wasn t for the movement of the hands of the clock and the new date on the newspaper you wouldn t be able to see much difference from back then You still need to

    stories and to talk to them to get their reflections on life Or by reading and observing what s going on around me and thereby constantly opening the doors and incorporating new pieces of reality into the big picture thereby putting my self perception into a new perspective For instance what about these reflections on reality People are afraid of themselves of their own reality their feelings most of all People talk about how great love is but that s bullshit Love hurts Feelings are disturbing People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous How can they deal with love if they re afraid to feel Pain is meant to wake us up People try to hide their pain But they re wrong Pain is something to carry like a radio You feel your strength in the experience of pain It s all in how you carry it That s what matters Pain is a feeling Your feelings are a part of you Your own reality If you feel ashamed of them and hide them you re letting society destroy your reality You should stand up for your right to feel your pain Jim Morrison This quote reminded me of Love Hurts written and composed by Boudleaux Bryant It has been performed by many great artists First by The Everky Brothers in 1960 later by Emmylou Harris Roy Orbinson Gram Parsons and others I prefer the intensive and saturated version by the hard rock heavy metal band Nazareth who took the song to a U S Top 10 in 1975 Listen to this 1974 performance and enjoy the intensity of vocalist Dan McCafferty Posted by Torben Schmidt at 9 35 PM Labels Jim Morrison Nazereth Reality testing Self perception No comments Post a Comment Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Guestbook Please leave a note here Subscribe To Posts Atom Posts Comments Atom Comments This is a Blog about using Walkabout in a chaotic situation in my life trying not to walk in my own footprints and changing my personal patterns how to challenge myself and break my own personal boundaries habits behavior and taboos how unemployment can be changed into being a positive experience with the help of coincidences and curiosity What is this about Why am I doing this How am I doing this With the hope that this will inspire others to try the same Feel free to comment and to join me on my journey I am Torben Schmidt Copenhagen Denmark Blogger and Photographer I have a degree in engineering and one in the psychology of organizations I m unemployed and on my way which is of importance in relation to this blog Labels Aboriginals 1 Anger 1 Authenticity 1 Beauty 1 Breaking boxes 1 Broadcast 1 Bullitt 1 Car chase 1 Care 1 Chaos 1 Control 1 Creativity 1 Discovery 1 Emotions 6 Everyday life 1 Expectations 1 Feelings 4 Field Music 1 Forrest Gump 1 Forward looking 3 Guestblogger 1 Guestbook

  • goWalkabout: Take off for the last time
    excitement the radio amateurs did the final tuning and I tried to decide how to take a picture of the take off As the launch time got closer people was gathering on the beach air planes and helicopters were checking the sky for the last time and disappeared from the area leaving the final decision concerning take off to a small aircraft which in lonely majesty flew across the sky obviously satisfied since it very rapidly left the scene and left us in total silence Seconds later the horizon was illuminated and a giant light slowly started its journey across the sky amazingly quiet despite the enormous power output Discovery made a nicely formed curve in its attempt to leave the earth and increased its speed and altitude while it was illuminating the black sky seconds later the booster tanks released and Discovery was on its own on its voyage towards new understanding As we were trying to understand what we had witnessed we mingled into the streams of cars heading back to Mims Discovery safely returned to the earth Friday December 22th 2006 at the J F Kennedy Space Center And some years later my own picture of the launch found its way to my blog as a symbol and metaphor of my own journey While I m writing this Discovery has taken off safely for the last time and is now orbiting the earth you can follow the STS 133 mission live here Meanwhile take a look on the launch that Saturday evening December 9th 2006 when i saw Discovery take off Posted by Torben Schmidt at 11 51 PM Labels Discovery Space Shuttle No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Guestbook Please leave a note here Subscribe To Posts Atom Posts Comments Atom Comments This is a Blog about using Walkabout in a chaotic situation in my life trying not to walk in my own footprints and changing my personal patterns how to challenge myself and break my own personal boundaries habits behavior and taboos how unemployment can be changed into being a positive experience with the help of coincidences and curiosity What is this about Why am I doing this How am I doing this With the hope that this will inspire others to try the same Feel free to comment and to join me on my journey I am Torben Schmidt Copenhagen Denmark Blogger and Photographer I have a degree in engineering and one in the psychology of organizations I m unemployed and on my way which is of importance in relation to this blog Labels Aboriginals 1 Anger 1 Authenticity 1 Beauty 1 Breaking boxes 1 Broadcast 1 Bullitt 1 Car chase 1 Care 1 Chaos 1 Control 1 Creativity 1 Discovery 1 Emotions 6 Everyday life 1 Expectations 1 Feelings 4 Field Music 1 Forrest Gump 1 Forward looking 3 Guestblogger 1 Guestbook 1 Harmony 2 How far spread 1 Humor 1 Identity crisis 1

  • goWalkabout: How far spread is Walkabout?
    fully arrive in the information society mentally I believe we will see a general shift in the work consciousness towards a life career rather than a work career where the individual is much more concerned with his or hers immediate needs as a preparation for the future Periodically we will all be unemployed in fact it will become somewhat of a status symbol to be on reflection time where one catches up with what has been on hold for the past few years or with life in general These periods of time out will be part of our career paths and in our CV since they send the message to any future employer that we are in tune with ourselves and therefore of great value to the company Whether we use our time away from the job market to take the family around the world or to pursue a new direction in our career is secondary The point is that we listen to our selves and do what feels right at the time In order to fund our times of self growth and life discovery we will all have unemployment insurance financially backed by our employers in much the same way we have health insurance today since it will be perceived as an asset to the company that its employees take leaves of absence in order to go walk about All the best of luck on your continuous journey Karina Weidner Reply Delete Anonymous July 20 2010 at 3 46 PM Hej Torben Tak fordi du sætter ord på et kafkask univers Systemet bygger på et menneskesyn der ligger langt fra det som kunne være i et samfund med frie individer der gerne vil arbejde realisere sig selv og sidde med ved bordet I stedet går alting op i kontrol trusler og kontrol af kontrollen Tænk hvis alle de penge som bliver brugt på kontrol blev brugt på at skabe nogle reelle arbejdspladser i stedet for Hilsen en som også er midt i det Reply Delete Anonymous July 27 2010 at 3 46 PM Dear Torben I like your thoughts about marinating and surveillance It made me remember the book Deutchstunde Tysktime by Sigfried Lenz about a painter who was forbidden to paint his expressionist paintings during world war II The story also tells about a constable who surveyed the painter day and night to make sure that he didn t paint Reply Delete Add comment Load more Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Guestbook Please leave a note here Subscribe To Posts Atom Posts Comments Atom Comments This is a Blog about using Walkabout in a chaotic situation in my life trying not to walk in my own footprints and changing my personal patterns how to challenge myself and break my own personal boundaries habits behavior and taboos how unemployment can be changed into being a positive experience with the help of coincidences and curiosity What is this about Why am I doing this How
