Pretend and create

 

 

To carry the weight of our own mistakes can be very difficult sometimes.

Too many things depending on us and, too many shared responsibilities adding weight to the load on our shoulders.

So when the load is unbearable and someone else criticise our behaviour or questions our methods, we tend to look for an external factor where we can  place the blame, “The real cause of the problem”.

So finding an external factor to justify our mistakes, behaviours, reactions, etc., is the easiest and painless solution and actually, we are pretty good at it.

It’s a universal activity, that we all, one way or the other, end up using to our advantage. But does that solve anything?

Do you know what will happen the day you decide to look inside of your being for the cause of everything, good or bad? Continue reading

You define yourself

I remember one day when my daughter told me she was stupid.

I was very impressed by the way she said that. She was around 5 years old and after school she told me she was stupid in a very confident and serene voice. She was totally convinced that was a fact.

I asked her why she said that and, in the same tone, she answered: “My teacher told me I am stupid, my friends told me I am stupid, my cousins told me I am stupid therefore, I must be stupid”

“Did they tell you that today?” I asked.

“Yes, but they have told me that before, so I think they must be right” She answered with sadness. Continue reading

The best I can do

I still have problems defining when I have to stop trying to do things. On one side my mind tells me to “make things happen” and the other side says “do not force things and go with the flow”.  And that is like trying to drive with one foot on the accelerator and the other on the brake at the same time.

I know, sometimes life asks you to go beyond your normal efforts in order to achieve more meaningful things and sometimes you need to allow things to freely flow because with your pressure you are only slowing things down.

But how do you know when acting one way and when acting the other? Continue reading

The external

We constantly talk about our old negative ideas, beliefs and hidden concepts in our mind that keep us sunk in our depression and lack of success.

But we cannot forget that we are inhabitants of a physical universe and that there are external factors as well.

Yes, we create our reality with our feelings and thoughts. Yes, we are responsible for the things that we create and attract to our personal reality and yes, there are other people in this local reality creating and attracting their own things as well, so we are not alone and yes, we are attracting and creating those external factors as well.

Let´s imagine you are an enthusiast of motorcycles. Then you get one or more motorcycles and then attract other people who are passionate about them as well.  Then your “inner circle” could be formed by people who share your hobbies and passions. Continue reading

Your future, now

Despite that you are still here now, that you have survived and overcome thousands of dangers and obstacles in your path. Despite that you have always been protected in many ways seen and unseen…

Even that some problems seemed insurmountable, so many obstacles looked difficult to avoid and some people impossible to reach. You are here now, and you are well.

You can look at your past right now and see how things managed, problems were solved and apparent obstacles disappeared or turned into advantages.

And even with all those proofs in your baggage, you still insist in doubting about your future? Come on. Continue reading

I want to live in this moment (Mental note)

I thought that living in this “reality” was simple and easy to do, but the more I talk to other people the more I realise that it is one of the most difficult things to do nowadays.

When I was a child and I was able to play without the help of any electronic device, I was more in “touch” with my reality since I used what I had in hand to build my toys. A piece of wood could be a ship, a bus, a bed, a seat or anything my mind could imagine. Same for an old box, a blanket, etc.

I used any object in my physical world to “create” a wonderful world in my mind. My mind was creating a world of fantasy for me to live in, but at the same time I was more in “touch” with the reality around me. The moment my mother called me to dinner, I was immediately “present” in my local reality. Continue reading

You are information

One of the most mind blowing theories Quantum physics is juggling right now is the idea that information builds reality.

Of course it is just a theory and it’s just beginning to go through different scientific filters, but the idea is not really new and there are many “big” names in the field behind it, so I am sure we will hear a lot about it in the near future. Continue reading

You are being limited

I was listening to the different complains of a group of people about the way governments around the world are limiting our freedom. How castrating and humiliating some laws could be for our well being.

One of the complainers was an acquaintance who lives in a very expensive part of the city and she was complaining about the abuse some immigrants have to face when they reach the borderline and they are treated like criminals and are returned back to their country.  She is the first to hire those people, pay them a miser salary and treat them almost like slaves. Continue reading

Create

I have mentioned many times an old Russian proverb that says: “There is no bad without good”. And in a few words it means that every time something “bad” happens to us, it’s because it brings something better behind it.

I have learnt that receiving every negative incident that arrives to our life with a positive disposition changes a lot the final result of that event. Continue reading

Disappointed

I grew up hearing “if you want things well done, do them yourself”.  Usually when you do team work it is very difficult to get the results you would have expected, if you had done the whole work alone.

We all have different gifts, abilities, knowledge, experiences, enthusiasm and interests, so to gather a team where every person will deliver their best to achieve certain result is a very difficult task. Continue reading
