My Magical Hubhopping Tour: Day Five
Half way there, and the dice have finally landed on something useless. So at this point I hold my hand up and admit that I have now cheated on this quest. My aim was to land on each hub and try to find something useful, or at least learn something I didn’t know before. But I skipped over my fifth hop for one reason... it was a blatant plug for gadgetry, quite clearly aimed at generating money for the hubber. So I won’t even name it.
I am not casting stones here. I realise that hubpages is a forum whose contributors are afforded recompense for their literary efforts. I myself have earned nearly 35 bucks (wow!) in the last two and a half years! I admire those who make a good living at hubbing, and they are clearly much more talented authors than myself. I would love to make more money at this, and who wouldn’t? I write to create, and whether what I create is good or not, the burning need inside for me to create cannot be extinguished. But I don’t write for the sake of making money, and so I will not waste my thoughts or reviews on a hub that is clearly written solely for that purpose. Those kind of hubs don’t need my review anyway.
So my fifth hubhop is really my sixth, but for all intents and purposes we’ll call it my fifth!
Ayurvedic Treatment by xren99
This hub is written on a topic that I know next to nothing about, but seems like a good, solid and informative article about ayurvedic treatment. What seems to be the underpinning of this ancient medicine does strike a chord with me, the fact that each cell of the entities of this universe are interconnected. I love this idea, and my literary explorations of eastern philosophies (for lack of a better word) over the last couple years, have opened new ways of looking at life for me. I cannot go into depth here as I fear that to give an in depth explanation of something I am only barely able to understand would be negligible. What I do believe is this – we are all connected. You cannot do anything – to a person, animal, or object – without it having some sort of impact on the whole. Furthermore, this ``doing`` does not only consist of physical actions, but also of the thoughts and perceptions you hold in your mind about everything and everyone. At first I thought that my explorations into these sorts of topics somehow conflicted with my Christian faith and my empirical paradigms as a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist. The more I learn about these topics, the more I see that these philosophies are just as interconnected to my Christianity and professional ideology as the cells of the universe.
This is a great first start from xren99, have a look here.
