John Stuart Mill, one of the most influential thinkers in the history of liberalism, defines utilitarianism as a theory based on the principle that “actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness, wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness”. Where happiness is defined as pleasure and the absence of pain.
Since I started my Svadhisthana tapas I’m crossing the Tropic of Capricorn for the third time. I wrote in the previous post about the connection between this chakra and this astrological sign. I parked tonight at the spot marked as line of the Tropic, exactly the same place as six days ago when I was going to explore the south part of the Northern Territory of Australia with Alice Springs and Uluru. This night which I spent here, six days ago was special – first, it was a very cold night, coldest since my stay in South New Zealand. From 30 degrees during the day the temperature dropped to 5-6 degrees during the night. Warm clothes and blanket saved me this time. Other special thing was that I had many dreams that night. I have a feeling that I was sleeping and resting, but dreaming all night.
