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 →
Many years had passed since the last time I talked to him, but it was such a nice surprise to see him again. His look was as usual strong but more relaxed at the same time. It was difficult to say what the real difference was.
We had share many years in our childhood but our paths took different directions. But now that we had found each other again it was so nice to be able to talk about the good old times and share the new as well.
After sometime of listening to his story and then taking my turn to tell mine, we were so amazed of how different our lives had been and being now sharing this little moment here and now was even more amazing. Continue reading →
“…So I began to visualise the end results I wanted to see in my life and then I stood there staring at the celling in silence wondering what to do next.” He said.
“Well after visualising what you want to manifest, what´s next is to follow your heart, you need to take a step towards what you want to get. If you don’t do anything, even taking a little step so your action moves the rest of the Universe, nothing is going to happen.” Was my answer.
“Ok, ok I know all that, I have read it a thousand times, but the thing is that right now, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I have done everything I know I can do, I have NO idea what the next step is and I need YOU to help me to find out what should I do now. There is nothing more enervating than wishing something and having no idea what to do about it, I cannot keep staring at the ceiling my whole life.” He said desperately. Continue reading →
I just received an email from a friend in Japan. She shares with me some of her hopes and fears and I was surprised to see how “similar” our dreams and problems were.
But why was I so surprised? I have been there and when I was in Japan, and actually after getting to know the people and customs there I was “accepted” in the community. To me they were like anyone else and I think I was taken as one more in the bunch.
So where did I begin to think they could feel or experience life in a different way than I do?
Being now on the other side of the planet, when I hear about Japan is like listening from a different world. But that is only an error in my perspective.
“Yes, things were getting very difficult, I felt overwhelmed and every morning I tried to resist the alarm to get up because I just wanted to continue sleeping to avoid having to deal with all the mess I had created for myself”. He looked tired but with a new light in his eyes.
He had lost his company, his home, his marriage but luckily not the love of his children. So he was able to find a motivation to get out of the hole he had dug himself into.
“And what about you? Were you too dwelling in your comfort zone too long? He asked. Continue reading →
I was reading the report of a new research about the benefits of walking, since is one of my favourite activities. I enjoy taking long walks and I am a convinced defender of the benefits of long promenades. Continue reading →
Our best gift? Being able to give. When we receive something, a present, a surprise, a donation, etc., the feeling is unbelievable, especially if we didn’t expect to receive it and/or is a solution to a problem we are facing. But do you remember the feeling or should I say the cascade of wonderful feelings that invade your heart the last time you gave something to someone who needed it?
Just to look into their eyes, to see their faces and how joy is exuded from their whole being is a wonderful experience. Continue reading →
When the “down” cycle suddenly appears and things look a little gloomy it’s the time to change our modus operandi.
Life is a continuous cycle and as you know sometimes we are on the “crest, or up side” and then we go down to the “valley or low side”. As cycles are a part of Nature we cannot “escape” form them, we cannot break or alter their flow. Continue reading →
