I have to ask you a question

Hi Guys,
This is your Ka speaking, I want to warmly welcome you from a warm late summer evening in Germany. My beloved German forest is in the background. We have been in Thailand for the last few months. From here we will go westward in two weeks, we are stopping quickly to see family and friends. I have to ask this question and others have been asking this as well. As a vegetarian or vegan can you have meat eating friends? Is that allowed or should it be forbidden?? Should you not sit at a table with people who eat meat? Would you sit on a leather couch at a friends home? Would you still talk to people who have made it clear that they have no interest in hearing about your vegan ideas?

I am provoking you a little with the situations I just described, but there is still a realness to them. The reason I want to talk about this is that I have been vegetarian for the last 10 years, we are 95% vegans and for months 100%. We have some bee products, honey,bee pollen and some eggs and goats milk products a couple of times a year. If the kids crave it I have no problem with that.

In the eyes of a purest

Technically, especially in the eyes of the purest, for sure these make me ‘not a vegan’.  So I should not even take the word in my mouth is the purists point of view. This is what I want to talk about. I love the idea of vegan-ism, the idea that we will not harm other living beings. I am fully behind this idea. The problem is that it is a great life style but such a bad religion. Guys, all wars have been started on this earth because some people thought that they were better. They thought they had the torch of light and had to bring it to the valley of darkness. This is what vegans do. They make a great idea look so bad. If vegans feel like they are better, are more advanced, have more knowledge and therefore are better people, it is not good.  They have to convince all the people underneath them to raise up to their level. This attitude makes the vegan idea look bad!!

 

Don’t try to convince others

How can you justify that you are vegan because you don’t want to harm other beings – you have love for all other animals and humans in the kingdom – and yet you judge and condemn others who are not vegan. I think this doesn’t make sense – I am very happy to share a table with meat eaters and tell them to enjoy their meal. I think this is so important!  The main message of this video is “do not try to convince your family and friends and especially by talking down to them”. You sit there and feel like you are a better and enhanced human being. You were not born a vegan were you??? Almost nobody has being born as a vegan especially us nose- high- in- the- sky Western people. You have been eating meat most of your life, how on earth can judge people who are doing what you have been doing most of your life???? This is doesn’t make sense. How you judge yourself if you go to a party and you smell meat cooking – you might find it disgusting but sometimes it smells nice and brings up a good memory. How would you feel about yourself if you have this attitude towards meat eaters?? You will be very negative and judgmental if those thoughts and feelings pop up. If you lock them away and do not allow yourself to feel them you will be putting them in a backpack and carrying it everywhere with you.

10448598_679658942106049_6468805719367345932_o

You have to be tolerant and have compassion

You have to be tolerant – practice this towards yourself and others as well. I think this is such a big point missing in the vegan movement – compassion – the compassion you have for animals you need to have for your brothers and sisters in the human race. People are in very different stages of their lives, if you would have come to me 15 years ago and talked about organic foods, raw foods and to let go of my beer and steak – I would have laughed at you and in no way would I have listened to you. I wouldn’t even have listened to myself if I met him 15 years ago!!!!  And that must be ok. You cannot force others to believe the same things you do. It’s not right and it’s not the way it works. The only thing you can do is walk your talk. Be real and honest, be yourself. Live the things, don’t talk about them.

One point we can totally agree on is the mass produced animal meat and stuff – that is something that is a no go for myself. It is not acceptable to me but still if somebody decides to eat that meat, I will not be the one blaming and making this person feel bad. We can educate people but it is a fine line. A lot of vegans over do it and make the movement look bad by being a preacher or a martyr. How do you feel about this??? Can you be friends with a meat eater, can you share a table with them??

 

Let’s start a discussion

Should it be legal, should you go to jail for eating meat????
What is your opinion on this , I would love to hear your thoughts on this. It’s a hot topic.

I want to start a discussion here so leave your thoughts and comments below. I am happy to receive them and to read them all. I will be back very soon with more videos inspiring you to become more healthy and to live your dreams. And you can still guess where we are going to go from here!!

Thank you so much, this is Ka.
Bye Bye, love you.

Reunited with my family

Hi Guys,

This is your Ka speaking and I am coming to you live from a beautiful forest in Germany.  This is one of the only things aside from family that I miss while travelling in the tropics.  We just arrived yesterday so you will have to forgive me if I look a little tired.  I am jet lagged for sure but I feel really energetic because of the diet I am on now. I am eating very little and drinking lots of juices.  I just arrived here and am really, really happy that I was able to put my arms around my family!! Especially my three little kids and Katie – all of them really!!  We are reunited and I am really happy about this!!

It’s also not as hot as it is in the tropics which is a nice change for now, at least.  I wanted to talk to you today about a misconception, a lie that has been put in our heads since childhood.  There is actually two lies:  one is that you can’t enjoy life until you are retired and in the meantime you have to work really really hard.  Those two conceptions have hindered us as a human tribe.  The amount of joy and abundance we could experience has been stunted.  I want to help you question those beliefs.

 

Don’t wait for retirement to enjoy your life

First with retirement -  I feel we have been brought up with the notion that we can only enjoy life once we retire.  Guys you have to see that the demographics are very clear.  Our society in the Western world is getting older and older.  We do not reproduce enough and this contract we  once had between the older and younger will not work for much longer.  If people tell you that your retirement fund is safe, this is a lie – this will change sooner rather then later.  If you think you can wait for your retirement pension to come and provide for you till the end of your days, you are mistaken – this is gonna change.  This is good news because it forces you to change something and take responsibility right now. To not rely on what the media is telling you.  That is the first thing.  Second you want to live your dreams, to do something that matters to you and others.  If you are 65 or 70 years ( they will increase the retirement age) you might not have any dreams anymore because you have been living against your dreams for an entire life time.  Please don’t do that !!!!!

How many retired people do you know that do exciting things and live their dreams??? There are people, I know it is possible but if you look at the percentage how many are living their dreams it is small.  Second you you might be too sick to live your dreams.  You might have to care for family members who are too sick to follow your dreams.  You cannot do the travel you have been waiting to do your entire life to do.  Now is the time.  Do not put your dreams on the back shelf and let them rot there.

 

10511657_682806208457989_8466482721044833790_o
From the bottom of my heart
From my heart I wish for you to just do it now.  What you have to do is to take on responsibility for your life.  Stop victimizing yourself, you are the creator of your life.  Stop blaming the government, your parents, your job, or your inability for your situation.  It’s not fair.  You have been putting yourself in this situation.  You are exactly where you are in order to take the next step.  It’s good to know this and own this place where you are right now.  As hard as this might seem, this is the first step to true change.  You have to admit honestly where you are right now and take responsibility for it.  That is the first step.

 

It’s a misconception that you have to work really hard 
The second misconception is that you have to work hard your whole life.  I feel that the more fun I have while working – I am working right now- the more time I use for playing and fun and wellness and doing stuff I really enjoy the more impact I have.  It allows me to reach more people and make more money and feel more happiness and have more free time. This connection between working time and getting paid is a conception that can be cracked apart.  You don’t have to get paid by the hour.  You have to take responsibility for that – as long as you are happy with that – keep doing it.  But if you do not feel like you are reaching your full potential and you are not as happy as you could be – question that and take responsibility.  From my own life and experience I would like to advice you to take three steps.

 

Steps to change your life

10513265_682783451793598_867749661595190809_nThe first step is to change your situation – you have to know exactly where you are – be honest and own it.  Second is you have to create a compelling vision.  You need to be specific and know exactly what is is you want to create.  It needs to make you excited and you can’t sleep if you think about it!!!   Three is to take action and move forward.  You don’t need to know the entire plan, just take this one little action step that you know you have to take.

I have been doing this through an online business helping and serving millions of people out there.  It gives me maximum freedom, it gives me significance, it gives me meaning and so much joy!!  It gives me financial freedom.  This is an option, I don’t know if it is the right one for you but I am sharing what worked for me guys.  These three steps work for anything.  I would love to see you implement them to be more abundant and happy in your life and to give back, to share and contribute in a bigger way.

 

This is my video.  I hope I have inspired you even though I am jet lagged.  Thanks so much for watching and I will be back from beautiful Germany.
I want to say thank you guys and see you soon, this was your Ka
Bye bye

From Denmark to Thailand

Written by Ka Sundance

DSC_0113-003(1)

 

Who are you and where do you come from?

We are Tina 33, Victor 10, Emil 8, Anton 6, Rumle 3 and Mikkel 43.
We are a family from Denmark. In Denmark we had a wonderfull three storyhouse. Tina was in sales and Mikkel was fundraising for children with cancer. Our children were in school and kindergarden. Every year we would travel by car to Italy and Croatia. We were the typical set family.

How did you get the idea to travel with your four kids and why?

We have allways seeked new experiences, allways been very spontanious, even with 4 children. Getting up at six, sending our kids off to school and kindergarden, going to work. Coming home late, picking up the kids late, shopping food, making dinner, doing homework, reading bedtime stories and then going to bed. And then doing the same thing all over again the next day and the day after that. It became too trivial. Too boring. So one day in december 2013, Tina and I looked at each other and decided pack the house quit our jobs and go travelling. What the hell, we can allways come back home if things dont work out. So two months and ten days later we were on the plane heading to Bangkok. Apart from the first week in Phuket we did not have any destinations planned. We played it by ear.

How did you get started and made it happen?

We just did it.
We did not plan anything from home, ofcourse we had thoughts of where we would like to go, and what we would like to see. We dont realy like plan, because then the freedom disapears.
What is with your home? Do you still have a house or stuff back in Denmark?
We have nothing apart from some stuff stored in Denmark. We are Danish citizens but have no rights. Which is fine, because we are not in Denmark. As said before, if for some reason things go wrong on the trip, we can allways return to Denmark.

Do you plan to go back? What will you do then?

Difficult question. The answer is yes, we have family there, but the real question is probably – how long we will stay in Denmark- ? We dont know, because we are sort of semi planning a road trip in north and central America. Doing Alaska down to Florida. So this trip has so far, made us want to see more of the world.

Do you miss family and friends, how do you stay in touch with them?

We miss family and friends, we have just had a wonderfull visit from Denmark. Tinas sister came out here with a friend and it was a wonderfull two weeks, and the kids loved their aunt being here. At christmas time we will be acompanied by Tinas family and we cant wait. Other than that we skype, and write a lot of emails.

What is about the education of your kids?

Mikkel has done a lot of work teaching in Denmark, so it is not that difficult for us to teach the kids. We sit down every day and do school work. But nothing can compare to learning about everyday life in the countries that we visit. This is where the gold is, and this trip will prepare them to meet hundreds of different cultures and realy get an insight of what the world is about, and that is priceless.

Do you have a health insurance?

We did have a health insurance through a Danish company. This was however very expensive. So we did some surfing on the web and found worldnomads which is excellent. Good coverage and good prices.

Where can people learn more about you and follow your adventures?

We have two blogs, one in Danish and one in English. In time we hope we can translate the blogs into 10-15 different languages, so we can skip the google translate.
www.verdensomlegeplads.dk
www.worldasourplayground.com
We would love to inspire people to do what we do. And believe it or not, it is quite simpel.
We also do coaching for people who want to let go of the fear they have. We want people to follow their dream, because one day its going to be too late. And if you ask your self – why did I not do that-or -why did I not go there- then you have not got the most out of life.

Life is a gift, and it has to be lived.

Tina and Mikkel
Victor, Emil, Anton and Rumle.

Literally and more…
Hi Guys,
This is your Ka speaking.  I want to warmly welcome you from beautiful Thailand.  Once again I want to answer a question today that we have been asked lately.  It is in regards to us being a world traveling family.  People are wondering what we do with our stuff in Costa Rica.  Generally the stuff that comes to us over the years – What do we do with all of it?
I want to answer this in two ways.  One is literally – what we actually do with the physical things we have.   And two,  that it is just a representation about what is going on within yourself – emotionally and spiritually.

 

Just a few boxes
First off, we have a base in Costa Rica and we have some boxes there – most of it is toys for the kids, a desk top computer and some more clothes.  It is a small garage with 5 or 6 boxes.  This is literally all the stuff we possess and own.  With everything else we just travel around with 4 or 5 suitcases even though there are 7 of us!! We have very little physical stuff to carry around with us. We don’t have anything in Germany, just the few boxes in Costa Rica.  We designed this by choice guys.   I feel all the successful people or world travelers who do this long term are really good at letting go.  Both physically and spiritually.

 

10496949_682988228439787_7510581499213398155_o
You have to be able to let go of stuff
 You have to be able to let go of your stuff.
 It also has to do with faith, fear and trust.  Letting go of this fear means you just trust and know that whenever you need something that it will be provided for you by the Universe.  You will buy it or find it or it will come to you.  These two things go hand in hand.  If you take on this belief that if you need something new it will be there, you won’t have to hang onto all those things that may be handy someday but are of no use to you right now.
This is how you get rid of all the stuff that is cluttering up your life emotionally, spiritually and physically.  I think it’s a lesson inside I have gained from life.  You have to be willing to let go and embrace the new and to see what new beautiful things you will get in the future.  Rather then hanging on to old stuff that might have been great in the past but no longer serves you in any way right now.

 

It really is a mind set
This constant letting go is a very good practice that you take on as a world traveler.  We change continents every few months.  It is a mind set thing as well.  I don’t think about the loss of leaving Thailand, I think about all the castles we will see in Germany and how awesome it will be to be back in Costa Rica when we go there.
It’s just a focus.  You can focus on what you have to let go of or you embrace the new and  look forward to the new.   This is how we can consciously use travelling to let go.  To let go and especially to let go of old habits, structures, emotional patterns and thought patterns that are no longer serving you.  You just try to implement something new as you go to a new continent.

1529858_681138851958058_5615682423889172541_o

 

Kids are good at this
We do this several times a year and I think it is a very refreshing life process.   This is linked to our kids.  Kids are so good at this.  They are living and breathing this life style.  As we get older it is easy to fall asleep and get stuck somewhere. Kids love to move and to travel, at least ours do!!  This is how we deal with physical stuff – we just let go and we make lots of gifts to others.  We try to enter a new continent very lightly.  You take on new stuff, it just happens, it’s normal. Letting go is not a process that is only done once and is completed.  It is a constant way of being – we need to practice through out our life time to succeed at it.  This is my answer in regards to our physical stuff and also spiritual and emotional baggage.

 

Guys I want to thank you so much for watching.  If you liked this one, please leave a comment and give us a like.  I will be making more videos from beautiful Thailand and soon from Germany and Costa Rica after that…….then the rest of the world!!!!!
Thank you so much.  This is your Ka.  Love you guys.  Bye Bye.

Hi Guys,

This is your Ka speaking. I want to warmly welcome you here from beautiful Thailand and inform you that today’s video will not be a content show where I inspire you with specific topics. This is about me and my life. So much has happened within the last week since I did my last video. I would have to talk too fast to give you content and update you about us.

Last week a dream came true for me. It was a month in the making and it involved me taking 2 and a half days to myself. I didn’t talk or eat for those two days. I did a juice fast and was meditating pretty much the entire day. Doing some exercise and walking on beach rounded out my day. It was awesome!! This was the first big thing that happened that was really great. This is the place that I stayed for the two days. I always envisioned having a place right on the beach with a balcony.

10312710_682789378459672_508963427418404968_n
These are some of my impressions I got while being by myself for two days. I wasn’t eating just having fruit juices several times a day. I feel awesome! I’m still not eating any food and I feel so good. You guys who have known me a while know that I do this very frequently – juice or water fasts. This is another one and I feel very very good this time.

I returned back to my family about half an hour ago and I took Katie to the airport. Katie with Ronja, Joa and Luna are flying to Germany. They just left –  they are in the air now! They have gone for a visit and I am staying here with Benny and Jaro. We will stay here for another 2 or 3 weeks before we join Katie.  Katie really wanted to see her mom very badly. My parents are away on holiday right now so it made more sense for her to go early.  It is better if seven people aren’t there and she can visit with her mom.
Its nice to separate the kids right now and I can have some real adventures with the older boys. We will do a snorkeling tour and Benny wants to learn to do archery with a bow and arrow!

10365578_662669270471683_1346468902496522227_oI wanted to ask you to leave a comment now below. Germany is a short stop over for us. We will only spend 3 weeks there. I want to ask you for your ideas or suggestions of where we should go now!!
We are pretty open.

We want to change continents, it will be a big trip and I would love to receive some comments from you all. We will reveal it soon – I want to make it a mystery. I want to ask for your suggestions, feedback and input. I would be grateful for this.
This is my little video for today. Just updates on me and my family.
I love you guys very much. Let’s see how long I will do this juice fast!!

Thanks, love, peace, fruits and rock and roll !!!

Bye Bye,, this is Ka from Thailand.
