First up we have a very interesting and detailed travel post, filled with lots of intriguing information and spectacular photos. @hanggggbeeee takes us on a guided tour of Chinchero, Peru and brings us closer to the wonders of a small rural village. Great post!
When it comes to Inca’s ruins, most people definitely think of Machu Picchu as it is the most impressive heritage of the largest empire in the Americas, which is still well restored nowadays. However, that is not Inca’s legacy all about. There are so many things other than Machu Picchu surrounded in, or nearby Cusco. I can list some of them such as Chinchero, Ollantaytambo, Moray, Pisac, Selinas de Maras, Qorikancha, etc.
All of these places are very enjoyable, but the fact is that the more spectacular and extraordinary Machu Picchu is, the less impressive and appreciated these other sites will be. It becomes somewhat…pale and overshadow for people. So, in order to fully enjoy what it has to offer, it is suggested to visit those side ruins first, before you end up your Cusco trip with Machu Picchu. Trust me, it’s all well worth your time, money and effort. -@hanggggbeeee

Book notes from Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday

For our second post we have a few paragraphs of talking about the importance of stillness. This author took the most important information from the book "Stillness is the Key" and presented it for us to read. I must say I really enjoyed this post and read it several times and I think you should too. It offers some great advice and clarity. Very interesting post @wcy, good job!
Ryan Holiday's new book talks about silence or 'stillness' as being incredibly important in our lives. Even not thinking about meditation, we want some sort of stillness in our lives. If you have kids, the stillness that comes from your kids sleeping and you not having to watch over them all the time can be a sigh of relief. If you have an open office workspace, the quiet that comes from not having coworkers chatter about their weekends can be a great boost to your concentration. If you have a lot of things going on, the stillness that comes from having a weekend or a day where you have no plans can be a great way to reset.
Ryan covers stillness in three sections: mind, spirit and body. My notes that follow are the things that I thought about as I read the book: -@wcy

Choo Choo! Get on the hype train for the new series "Witcher". I seriously doubt that you didn't hear about it since it's all the people talk about this days. The series and it's most memorable song "Toss a coin to your
Witcher". @dandydan brings us his own, very unique and glorious version of the song. It's incredible and I'm seriously hooked!

Exploring Thought Episode #05 - Morality
Images property of @apolymask
And finally we have can enjoy a little talk about morality. I really enjoy psychological posts such as this one and usually relate to them on a certain level. @apolymaks talks about some important stuff here and it would be a shame not to hear him out. Also for those who can't be bothered to read, there is an audio version provided by the author to make your life easier. Amazing work @apolymask, keep it up!
Another foundational subject I'd like to get into early on is morality.
I read up on this word and as is often the case you can find quite a few different definitions or meanings.
The way I would read it is that morality is a system of values, especially in regard to right and wrong.
Morality has been a major part of my life, often expressing itself in the form of empathy for others.
A lot of people say morality is subjective and to some extent I agree that it is, but I also think there are perhaps universal or spiritual aspects to it.
If there was no sense of right or wrong, what would that mean? Why would we do anything at all if we didn't have preferences or aversions?
So... If we are going to have a sense of right and wrong, then why not study it like almost everything else in life and try to improve our understanding? -@apolymask
Although there are a bunch of other interesting stuff on this author's profile, I think that "Exploring thought" is by far my favorite thing to read. If you enjoy this post, start from Episode #1, you won't regret it!
