A day that Lille Jumpen took a peanut from my hand! Aww. Too cute. Can't believe it's been a week already since that pic was taken.

So this is me, writing notes for a forthcoming article on consciousness. I find that writing by hand is still a part of my creative process.
It's never been a more crucial time to think about human consciousness, especially with so many existential challenges to it in these times. For those who don't know, "consciousness" is one of the things I research and write about.

All the ingredients for a lovely version of Greek Salad (minus Kalamata olives, plus avocado). Perfect for a keto lunch to help shift some of that corona-belly.
This recipe ended up being about 10g carbs, 46g fat, and 15g protein. Happy with that.

What an amazing 6 months.
Far too much to ever put in a post,
Or a few words.
I will be back soon.

#BodyTransformation - but here’s me still struggling to laterally raise a 10kg dumbbell! But, I’ve improved over the last weeks. And yes I know, my form isn’t great ( a bit too much swinging, core not engaged etc.), but I learn…
I’m often asked what going to the gym has to do with spirituality. Aren’t so-called “spiritual” people meant to be above all that? Isn’t it just vanity? Well, I wouldn’t lie to myself and say I’m totally beyond or above vanity, as I’m human and its part of the course of being human, but it’s not the main drive at all. For me, the body is important, but it’s nowhere near as important as the spirit, as one’s inner life. The most important work we can do on ourselves is our inner work. If people spent just a fraction of the energy they spent at the gym looking at their inner lives, the world would be a better place.
But, actually, I’m doing that work. I’ve been doing it a long time. And now it’s time to get the physical house in order. I’ve been fat and I’ve been super skinny in my time, but in the last years I’ve tried to get in shape once and for all. And, as the body is the house or temple of the spirit - why not spruce it up a bit? There’s nothing wrong with developing a fit, healthy body, with a bit more muscle, that will last well into old age. I’m not unhappy with the way I look or I have low self-esteem. But I like self-improvement and I like challenging myself, and I’d like to see how I can change my “suit”. Which is why I’m committing myself to doing a body transformation. This time next year, I should be in a somewhat different place with that lateral dumbbell raise. And I’m looking to gain some extra kilos of pure muscle, without putting on too much fat. A lean bulk, I think it’s called. So let’s see how I do this exercise this time next year. If it works, I’ll share what I did. I’ve got a really good programme of training that I think works well for me, which I’ve been warming up to these past months, so I feel I’m good to go. October 2020 is not too far away!

"This last trip to Copenhagen was quite busy… and I got to finish editing my translation of 'Juleevangeliet' (The Christmas Gospel) from Danish to English. Also managed to squeeze in a podcast with Mary McGovern from the Martinus Institute, so look out for that in December - I'll upload it to YouTube when it's done.
Not many more trips left now this year, before big travels start at the end of December ... Brazil, Argentina, Australia, USA. More about that later." #antonjarrod #dailylife #Martinus #translation #Copenhagen #instagay #gaylife #spirituality #story #videoessay #instagood #instalife #goodlife #happiness

Super sweet Seville! It’s 39 degrees and I didn’t think I’d cope with the heat, but somehow you find a way. The pool helps! Loving getting time to chill and enjoy time with friends. #spain #Seville #holidaysun #toohot #gaylife #pool #lazydays
