Expectations and achievements
Sometimes our expectations are running higher than we wish to accomplish. Occasionally lower. We hype ourselves up where we should stay on the soil.
Failures and submissions
When things don’t work out as we think they would we need to readjust and rethink if our strategy is working.
Planning and execution
Planning is crucial, thorough research is essential.

Reality vs. imagination

Real difficulties are those we can not master. Yet there always seems an easy way out, like changing the mode of operation, throwing in the towel ( like in sports ), or skipping a given event.

Hypes and expectations
In the end, we unequivocally face those where all the hype has caused unbreakable expectations.
Deriding the cause
Deriding the cause, method, participant, is always the option of the spectator. It would be too easy a task in the face of the endless efforts carried out.
Compassion as a way out

Compassion would be the right gesture; it will create a mutual feeling of understanding and leaves the participants a gentle way out of a dilemma.

I became inspired by Tibetan culture years ago as a result of frequent visits to Tibet, and Gharze Autonomous region.
There, in 4600 m altitude people would leave their vehicles to offer paper money, which they burnt, to the holy mountain Quershan.
At the time this custom seemed strange. At first, I was baffled then amused.
Thinking over it I concluded that everything in nature is worthy to be praised, how much more a majestic mountain which claims many lives each year.
Tibetan people tend to believe their ancestors, they follow traditions and set rules.
If their mountain is not pacified many more lives will be lost in the future. The other aspect is to seek prosperity and luck.
All throughout the ceremony, I came in direct contact with people explaining the forces of nature, and Quershan in particular.
In one day the gates of hell open up and swallow everything in its proximity. People have a right to believe in Quershan’s powers.
The book narrates ( in German ) a few examples of Tibetan life, and also describes the cause of vast landslides that took away the very structures I slept in.
We conclude when forces of nature take a whole town, people are left without anything, except for destruction.
