One of the most difficult things I have tried to get over with is that feeling of not doing enough to make this a better world for me and others.

Sometimes I feel so useless and powerless while trying to find a better way to do things. I wish there was an “app” in my mind to help me find the best and fastest way to accomplish those long awaited and unfulfilled dreams in my heart.

But I guess sometimes Life has a way to “help” you learn things faster and that is by giving you experiences where you can apply those things you have been reading and learning about through many different sources. But when times comes for you to “utilise” the tools you have received throughout your life, is when real “knowledge” comes.

It is really amusing to listen to those people who believe their “truth” is the only reality that exists.  And you can find examples everywhere and at all levels. From regular people to professors at prestigious universities throughout the world.

We all cling to our own particular “truth” and what others think Is just unfounded rubbish. Yes, I am sure you know many examples of this as well. Continue reading

A little experience…

He was screaming and throwing things around him in the middle for the pavement. People avoid the site where he was standing and preferred to cross the street so they hadn´t to pass near him.

I saw him from a distance, I could see he was very angry and he was yelling things I couldn’t understand.  As I approached the place he was standing at, a lady was running away from him while he shouted: “I don´t know why I am doing this to myself, if I know I am hurting myself” and then kicked a plastic bucket near him.

Instead of crossing the street to the other side in order to avoid this man, I kept walking normally. I have no idea why, since he was very aggressive and throwing everything he could find. Continue reading

Anxiety

He usually looked so calmed and relaxed, I wondered sometimes if he ever got angry or nervous about something.

One day I heard he was going through a severe legal problem involving a money issue with his relatives. When I went to visit him he looked as usual, calmed and relaxed, despite the problems he was facing going to courts and having to deal with attorneys all the time.

At first I didn’t dare to ask him how he was feeling, since his attitude was clear enough as to see he was doing quite well. Continue reading

Certainty

I think one of the hardest exercises for our belief system is when we have to let go of our need to have control of every situation in our life and allow our heart to trust that things will be alright.

You know what I mean, things begin to get nasty, then you worry and get angry, then your mental vibration begins to create more “problems” and uncomfortable situations and then you get more of those, then you get more worried and more angry and the cycle repeats, only this time things are darker than before.

A fearless life? No thanks.

I was reading about a method that guarantees a life without fear. Being fearless, although very romantic as it might sound, would be very dangerous as well.

We have talk in the past about the importance of fear and other apparent “negative” emotions.

But we have mentioned as well the importance of balance in our life. Every emotion, has its own Importance and reason, and learning to use them in the right way is paramount here. Continue reading

Don’t argue


When things are going exactly in the way we don’t want them to go we usually get angry and start arguing with ourselves, with God, with our friends or family or just with all the above.

One thing we should keep in mind before wasting our energy complaining to everybody is that when we do that, we are actually reaffirming that situation and therefore we are creating more of the same.

Arguing with your current situation won’t help you in any way. It will create more tension in your soul and it will harm you in more ways than you can imagine. Continue reading
