Your hero

 

They say humans always need someone to admire, someone to follow, someone to take as a role model.

Since the beginning of mankind, stories of powerful beings with superpowers have existed. Most of us have dreamt to be like one of those heroes, possess their superpowers and save the world.

We have cherished that idea from our early childhood and as we grow up and lose contact with those stories, we leave them resting in our deep subconscious mind.

One day we get in trouble and when we cannot find a way out of our problems, we begin to search for a hero to save us and take us away from distress.

And we wait for days, months and even years. And nobody comes to save us. Time goes by and we keep our eyes looking away towards the horizon, waiting for that super hero to arrive. Continue reading

Decide

I was listening to a friend who vehemently expressed his ideas on politics. A group of people around him listened to his view with interest, but some of them did not agree with his ideas and they began to refute his points.

I don´t like to watch sports on TV but if you are a man, have you tried to tell other men you don´t like it and then they look at you as if you just arrived from a distant planet in a new discovered galaxy. Continue reading

I respect your ways

I know you have heard many times that we are all different. No matter how long we have lived in the same community, in the same house and even in the same family. We have a lot in common and yet, we are still different.

You might like to add sugar in your tea, I prefer a little more cream in it instead. You might prefer a bagel with it, I prefer a ring doughnut. You might like to talk about politics, I rather skip that subject.

We can be so different in so many aspects and yet, we can share a nice tea moment, each enjoying, at the same time, our own personal pleasures. Continue reading

The Real Truth

Get the real formula for success, this is the true religion, this is the real thing, we’ll get you the only true medicine, this is the real story, do you promise to tell nothing but the truth?

Truth is such a “commercial” term nowadays.  It is used, changed, hid, transformed, translated and interpreted in so many different ways that it is so difficult to know the difference. Continue reading
