Definition of a Karmic Connection


When you meet someone you have a karmic connection with, a spark of recognition ignites in your soul. 

You’ll feel a haunting familiarity, a sense of having come home, a longing for something not quite remembered.

You feel a deep, spiritual connection to this person almost like you have known them for a long time.

You have flashbacks or deja vu moments where you feel that you have been together before.

You seem to understand each other and have a similar way of thinking.


You may have similar flaws or habits, or you both had similar challenges during childhood.

Your connection is intense and so too is the relationship. Often it can move from extreme highs to extreme lows.


You feel in sync with each other even when you are not physically together. There may be a feeling of having to team up together to conquer something.

You know intuitively what the other is thinking or feeling. You feel very in-tune and connected with their thoughts and actions.


Your relationship is emotional, challenging and can bring things out in you that you didn’t know existed.

You may experience huge shifts and changes in your life when you first meet this person.

Your relationship may not last forever but the love is always there.

Embraer 1000E Hollywood Airship


For many, private jet ownership is an opportunity to flaunt their individuality. This is especially true in the rarefied airspace of the ultra-large executive jet. As the biggest and the baddest private jets flying, owners of these converted airliners want to make their mega-dollar planes stand out from the crowd.
This brings us to Embraer.

The Brazilian jet maker has long been a fan of highly stylized theme interiors. Last summer, Embraer introduced the far east-inspired Kyoto Airship and its stunning skylights. Later in the year, the company rolled out the Brazilian Rancher-meets-Texas-oil-tycoon themed the Skyranch One. 

In its latest effort, Embraer offers its take on the glamour of Tinseltown in the 1930s with the Hollywood Airship. 

“The Hollywood is steeped in MGM style, with a nod to film greats of the black and white movie era.,” the company wrote in its press kit. “Embraer pushes the design envelope in private aviation with the introduction of a chic shuttle aircraft that celebrates the beauty and affluence of the past while embracing the advanced technology of the future.”

Due to the highly bespoke nature of the business, Embraer’s customers can choose to adopt the whole package or simply a few select elements of the concept. 

Here’s a closer look at the Embraer Lineage 1000E Hollywood Airship.

The Hollywood Airship interior is designed for Embraer’s flagship Lineage 1000E executive jet. 

The 1000E has room for 13 to 19 passengers, with a range of nearly 5,300 miles. It’s based on the company’s E190 airliner.


Formal dining for six is available in the VIP Crystal Room near the back of the plane.

So how much does all of this art deco fabulousness cost? 

A new Embraer Lineage 1000E can be had for $53 million.

 But for an additional $30 million, your Lineage can shine brighter than Hollywood’s biggest stars.

“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”

“People ask me if I’m an artist or an architect. But I think they’re the same.”

“A lot of people don’t get it, but I design from the inside out so that the finished product looks inevitable somehow. I think it’s important to create spaces that people like to be in, that are humanistic.”

“Architecture is a small piece of this human equation, but for those of us who practice it, we believe in its potential to make a difference, to enlighten and to enrich the human experience, to penetrate the barriers of misunderstandin g and provide a beautiful context for life’s drama.”


“I think you’ve got to accept that certain things are in process that you can’t change, that you can’t overwhelm. The chaos of our cities, the randomness of our lives, the unpredictability of where you’re going to be in ten years from now – all of those things are weighing on us, and yet there is a certain glimmer of control. If you act a certain way, and talk a certain way, you’re going to draw certain forces to you.”


“Let me tell you one thing. In the world we live in, 98 per cent of what gets built and designed today is pure shit,” responded Gehry after raising his middle finger. “There’s no sense of design nor respect for humanity or anything. They’re bad buildings and that’s it.”


“Every now and then, however, a small number of people do something special. They’re very few. But – my God! – leave us in peace! We dedicate ourselves to our work. I don’t beg for work. I don’t have publicists. I’m not waiting for people to call me. I work with clients who have respect for the art of architecture. At the very least, don’t ask stupid questions like this.”


 “When you build a building, any building, start with the simple block model to see where that goes,” says Gehry in a promotional video for the course.”


“As an artist, I got constraints, gravity is one of them,” he continues. “But within all those constraints I have 15 per cent of freedom to make my art.”


“I’m always trying to express movement, I was fascinated with the fold so basic to our first feelings of love and warmth. These ideas are scary as hell to tell to the client, they can reject you and they will. But create the logic for it as you go, stretch it into another place.”

8 Spruce Street, originally known as Beekman Tower and currently marketed as New York by Gehry, is a 76-story skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry in the New York City borough of Manhattan at 8 Spruce Street, between William and Nassau Streets, in Lower Manhattan, just south of City Hall Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.

👁🦋💃🏻Love the friends, the enemies even more!Love the friends, the enemies even more! The former accept us as we are, not the others!

As long as friends represent only continuation, enemies may represent renewal.

Staying as we are by time too kills in us innumerable possibilities of an improvement that is necessary and fundamental.

Not that we are obliged to give answers to all those who mistreat us, but in a conscious attitude of showing them the best of us sometimes proves to be a valuable find too.

We are always better than we think and can behave much better than we have behaved ourselves!

With each new look, from a possible friend or foe we are at the mercy of a very personal value judgment, but our counter-balance always represents one more step … Your added value will be if this step is positive and forward.

The directions of the steps, as well as decisions and thoughts, feelings are individual and nontransferable, but I think a retreat can be salutary unless it represents an escape or alienation.

Thus the clash between peers and people not so close is salutary and extremely important for the growth of each and every individual.

It is clear that we depend on having a certain degree of understanding and discernment, that we are freed from pride and vanity so that we may discern in whom our own vanity, pride, wickedness and envy are opposed to us. The other may be launching on us his own inability to live …

Only in this way will we be able to see in our enemies new opportunities for our individual and spiritual growth.

There are times that those we call enemies are full of reason to oppose us!

Love friends, enemies much more …

But all too much love, like all unmasked hate, that causes blindness is not good, nor promote good.💃🏻⭐️👁

Ame os amigos, os inimigos ainda mais!

Ame os amigos, os inimigos ainda mais! Os primeiros nos aceitam como somos, os outros não!
Enquanto os amigos representarem apenas continuação, os inimigos podem representar renovação.

Permanecer como somos por tempo demasiado mata em nós possibilidades inumeras de um aprimoramento que é necessário e fundamental.

Não que sejamos obrigados a dar respostas a todos os que nos destratam, mas numa atitude conciênte de lhes mostrar o melhor de nós por vezes se mostra um achado valioso demais.

Somos sempre melhores do que pensamos e podemos nos comportar bem melhor do que temos nos comportado!

A cada novo olhar, dum possível amigo ou inimigo estamos a mercê de um juizo de valor muito pessoal, mas o nosso contrapor representa sempre um passo a mais… Sua mais valia será se este passo for positivo e para frente.

As direções dos passos, bem como decisões e pensamentos, sentimentos são individuais e intransferiveis, mas penso que um recuo pode ser salutar exceto se não representar uma fuga ou alheamento.

Assim o embate entre pares e entre pessoas não tão afins é salutar e de extrema importância para o crescimento de cada e todo individuo.

Fica claro que dependemos de ter um certo grau de entendimento e dicernimento, estarmos despreendidos de orgulhos e vaidades para podermos divisarmos em quem se contrapõem á nós a sua própria vaidade, seu orgulho, maldade e inveja. O outro pode estar lançando em nós a sua própria incapacidade de viver…

Somente assim poderemos ver nos inimigos oportunidades novas para o nosso crescimento individual e espiritual.

Tem horas que aqueles que chamamos de inimigos estão cheios de razão ao se oporem a nós!

Ame os amigos, os inimigos bem mais…

Só que todo amor demasiado, como todo ódio desmensurado, que cause cegueira não é bom, nem promoverá o bem.👁🦋💃🏻

Carnaval im Rio 2017

​​
Erica Chrysocherakis & Adriana Sassoon at Itaipava VIP Box 

Sapucaí

The Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí is a purpose-built parade area built for the Rio Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The venue is also known as Passarela Professor Darcy Ribeiro or simply the Sambódromo in Portuguese or Sambadrome in English. It is located in the downtown area of Cidade Nova in Rio de Janeiro, and is the place where samba schools parade competitively each year during the Rio Carnival. The parades attract many thousands of Brazilians and foreign tourists each year, and the structure is also used as a multi-purpose performance venue. The structures of the Sambadrome were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012), and represent his first major work after the end of the Brazilian dictatorship of 1964-1985.


Carnaval in Rio

The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro (Portuguese: Carnaval) is a festival held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people per day on the streets. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723.


The typical Rio carnival parade is filled with revelers, floats, and adornments from numerous samba schools which are located in Rio (more than 200 approximately, divided into 5 leagues/ divisions). A samba school is composed of a collaboration of local neighbours that want to attend carnival together, with some kind of regional, geographical common background.

There is a special order that every school has to follow with their parade entries. Each school begins with the “comissão de frente” (“Front Commission” in English), that is the group of people from the school that appear first. Made of ten to fifteen people, the “comissão de frente” introduces the school and sets the mood and style of their presentation. These people have choreographed dances in fancy costumes that usually tell a short story. 


Following the “comissão de frente” is the first float of the samba school, called “abre-alas” (“Opening Wing” in English). These are followed by the Mestre-sala and Porta-Bandeira (Master of Ceremonies and Flag Bearer), with one to 4 pairs, one active and 3 reserve, to lead the dancers, which include the old guard veterans and the “ala das baianas”, with the bateria at the rear and sometimes a brass section and guitars.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping megacenters such as Abu Dhabi and Marina malls. Beneath white-marble domes, the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque features an immense Persian carpet, crystal chandeliers and capacity for 41,000 worshipers.

Abu Dhabi is full of archeological evidence that points to civilizations, such as the Umm an-Nar Culture, having been located there from the third millennium BCE. Settlements were also found farther outside the modern city of Abu Dhabi but closer to the modern city of Al Ain. 
Abu Dhabi has a diverse and multicultural society.

Abu Dhabi’s modern, sophisticated and luxurious ambitions, Etihad Towers is a spectacular five-tower development on the city’s skyline. Set in the desirable and exclusive beachside Al Ras Al Akhdar district of Abu Dhabi and located near the world-renowned Corniche, Etihad Towers is a fully integrated neighbourhood offering a live, shop & dine, work and stay experience. Sprawling over half a million square meters, the elegantly crafted Etihad Towers is designed by Australian architects DBI Design. 

With five stunning towers that sparkle iridescently in the never-ending sunshine, Etihad Towers is a reflection of everything that Abu Dhabi is and will be: Modern, Sophisticated and Luxurious.

#MAKEAPROMISE  Louis Vuitton partners with UNICEF

I AM here tonight with #makeapromise  UNICEF & LVMH Let’s Help Children around the World. 

Louis Vuitton Foundation 

Louis Vuitton and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) signed a partnership on January 11th to support the most vulnerable children around the world. Louis Vuitton has launched a major campaign to raise funds for UNICEF.


Adriana Sassoon

Louis Vuitton’s partnership with UNICEF will help support the organization’s efforts to protect children exposed to natural disasters and conflicts, providing health care, nutrition and education. “UNICEF is a strong and reliable leader in humanitarian action. Together, we can make a real difference to children in the most vulnerable situations,” said Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton.

To raise funds, Louis Vuitton has designed a special product, the Silver Lockit, inspired by the unpickable tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect the contents of trunks. The Silver Locket is available in both pendant and bracelet models. For each sale, Louis Vuitton will donate $200 to UNICEF.

Adriana Sassoon 
Louis Vuitton has also created a digital campaign to raise awareness and encourage as many people as possible to support UNICEF’s actions. This commitment is symbolized by a “pinky promise”, a popular way among children to signify that a promise has been sealed by entwining their little fingers. People are invited to share their pledge on social networks via the hashtag #MAKEAPROMISE.


My favorite piece was of course The Campana brothers Milan 2015: a swinging cocoon chair by the Campana brothers and seats made from leather petals by Raw Edges are among the contributions to a collection of portable furnishings for French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

The campaign went live on January 12 in Los Angeles at the sixth UNICEF Ball. Numerous Louis Vuitton friends were on hand to support the initiative. They joined Nicolas Ghesquière and Léa Seydoux, the Maison’s new muse, who interlocked their pinkies to make a promise.

Through this ambitious global partnership Louis Vuitton encourages everyone to get involved and support UNICEF by making a direct donation or by purchasing the Silver Lockit, and to show and share their commitment on social networks with #MAKEAPROMISE.
