Warm and cool

It is not even eight o’clock in the morning and the temperature is already at 30.1º C. (86º F)
The waiting is for the wind to start blowing and because it comes from the sea, it will cool down life on land.

This effect has once been observed in Georgetown, Guyana.
The English colonialists have built houses in Guyana with large windows that are facing the side from where most of the time the winds are coming.
Outside, just beneath the window are large water containers.
The wind blows over the water surface and cools down to enter the room of the house.
Natural air conditioning.

Before to be impressed by the English ingenuity, already in the times of the Romans, about 2000 years ago in Europe, all kinds of natural air conditioning systems like the one in Georgetown, Guyana were developed to cool houses

The Fuso Szulc has been built without an artificial and energy consuming air conditioning.
Concerning hot weather the Fuso Szulc is equipped with large windows, large roof vents and a philosophy.
The philosophy is that a mobile living unit should move along with the temperature of the environment.
When it gets too cold, the mobile living unit moves to where it is warmer.
If it gets too hot, the mobile unit travels to where it is cooler.

Because of the temperature getting too high next to the Sea of Cortez, in a few days the Fuso Szulc will travel to La Paz to proceed to the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
The water temperature of the Pacific Ocean is much lower than that of the Sea of Cortez.
Hence, the wind is cooling the environment much more and it is more pleasant to live and work over there.

Today is Sunday and fervent and loyal blog readers definitely remember how last week we were all praying the “Our Father”.
The Christian way.

This Sunday it is the opportunity to pray together in the Buddhist way:

Oneness of Life and Light,
Entrusting in your Great Compassion,
May you shed the foolishness in myself,
Transforming me into a conduit of Love.
May I be a medicine for the sick and weary,
Nursing their afflictions until they are cured;
May I become food and drink,

During time of famine,
May I protect the helpless and the poor,
May I be a lamp,

For those who need your Light,
May I be a bed for those who need rest,
and guide all seekers to the Other Shore.
May all find happiness through my actions,
and let no one suffer because of me.
Whether they love or hate me,
Whether they hurt or wrong me,
May they all realize true entrusting,
Through Other Power,
and realize Supreme Nirvana.
Namo Amida Buddha
