Contending

 

I don´t know about you but, I am just tired of seeing the opinion wars on social networks, News media, newspapers, radio, TV and even in the neighbour´s coffee table.

One side says they know what they are talking about, the other side give their “reasons” and instead of people trying to reach a common conclusion, all I see is people trying to defeat the other side.

You can see people complaining about everything but they never give an alternative solution to that situation. Politicians around the world promising to end the unemployment, hunger, war and every human problem there is, if people vote for them, but they never say how they are going to comply, of course they do not have a clue, they just want their votes.

Social networks full of people criticising their governments, their friends and neighbours, but never giving feasible propositions.

And yes, sites like mine complaining about all of them. Continue reading

It will not go away, until…

“…But I have done all the visualisations, meditations, affirmations and any spiritual exercise you can imagine, but my situation is still the same” my friend said yesterday with a desperate tone.

“I know the feeling” I answer with first hand experience.

“But I think I have done everything to change my life and circumstances but I just do not see these problems vanishing from my life”. He bitterly complained.

Looking back

At first, mowing the lawn didn’t seem so complicated. I saw my neighbours do it all the time and they looked so unconcerned about the way they did it, I always thought there was no complication in the process.

But this time I was going to learn a very important lesson.

I was 7 years old and not very interested in learning about gardening and its technical hitches.  But I was visiting a friend in his house and I must admit I was impressed by his garden.  Everything looked so perfect and beautiful!

His father asked me if I could give him a hand by mowing the lawn with an old manual lawnmower. I didn’t see any problem with that, it looked very easy to do, so I began the task with the excitement of trying a new thing. Continue reading

Bad

We always complain about the bad things that happen to us in our everyday life.

Sometimes we feel the worst things take place at the worst moment so our mind begins to orbit around our problems, leaving the rest of our life out of perspective. Then the rest of the world disappears and our attention is focused on those “terrible situations”.

We all have been there and when we finally take a look around us, we finally see there are much bigger problems in the life of others that the ones we are considering as our doom. Continue reading

Replace it!

She was drawing something on a piece of paper, when I got into the room she didn’t seem to notice my presence, so I stood at the entrance waiting for her to invite me in. But she was too concentrated on her drawing, so I had to wait for a while until without taking her eyes from her drawing she just muttered: “Are you going to stay at the door the whole day? Wouldn’t you rather seat?” Continue reading
