Let them go

One of the hardest things in life is, when someone we love, leaves permanently.  When a loved one leaves this physical plane or just follows a different path, it is hard for us to admit it.

Sometimes we even get really mad with God, the Universe or just Destiny, but it is always very difficult to accept and understand their departure.

I was talking with a group of students about the death of a famous singer who was killed by a gunshot by accident, (He was mistaken by somebody else). Continue reading

Leaving behind…

After a long period of hardships in your life. After all the hard test have been overpowered, the most difficult thing is to leave those bad feelings behind.

Getting over a bad experience does not mean that you have to pretend the harm never existed.  It just means it is no longer directing your life.

I know there are things you will not be able to forget, but at least take the power you once gave them to guide the course of your life for a while and, retake it once more.

I once thought I was not good enough and, that I did not deserve to be happy and prosperous and those thoughts governed my life for a long time.  After discovering that there was no external person nor influence to blame, I decided to take that power back and manage it myself to direct it to more fruitful endeavours.

The best I ever had

Why is it that when somebody dies he or she becomes the best person on the planet?

Why after a love is gone, we realise after a while, that he/she was the “love of our life”?

Why do we have to face loss, in order to find the good aspects of people, places and things?

And you can apply that to practically everything with the exception of abusive people and bad situations. But even in those cases I have seen people who, when an abusive person who made their life a real hell, dies. They begin to find the “good” in them.  Sometimes an excess of dependency? An addiction to old beliefs? Whatever… Continue reading

Your deeds

I used to think that trophies and medals, awards and acknowledgements were a sign of success. And maybe in most cases this is so, but I was shocked to learn how easy is nowadays to buy or get one when you have enough cash in your wallet or you know the “right” people.

I do not usually accept those things because I feel I haven´t really earn them yet. I know so many people with years of experience, hard work, perseverance and especially great results to show and, most times, they are ignored. Continue reading

A safer place

Sometimes life seems so “illogical”, “unexplainable”, “unfair”, etc. The world look as a heinous place to live and everyone around us seem to be “out to get us”.

You try to understand what is going on and why everybody is so “mean” to you, since you are such a nice person!

Sometimes you wonder why the ones you love the most seem to be the ones who hurt you frequently and more deeply. Continue reading

This Now

Whatever you are experiencing right now is a unique moment in this local reality. There are too many elements that make this moment totally unique and besides those “invisible elements”, those elements we have no access to and/or we cannot really understand. I am sure you can find a lot of “evident” elements that makes your here and now a unique coordinate in this space-time universe. Continue reading

Lies

For some reason we believe we can get away with lying, not only to others, but to ourselves.

There are thousands of “reasons” to tell a lie.  There are many classifications for lies as well: “white lies”, “broken promises”, “lies to justify ourselves and/or others, “exaggeration” even “necessary lies” and so on. Continue reading
