I was talking to an older friend, about his life and the experience he has gained through the years.
As a child, I had the idea that life gives us experience through different events and that every old person was wise and experienced in all areas of life.
I always thought that someone who had been on this planet for many decades had been able to gather all the knowledge in the world, but that idea began to fade as I grew up and had to work with many old people.
My friend who has been on this Earth for a little more of 8 decades, was amazed with my concepts and told me that experience and strength were not dependent of the age but on endurance. Continue reading →
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 →
Nowadays, empty words are such a trend. Everybody has to say something all the time.
Even when they do not know what to say or they have no idea of what they are talking about.
If someone else is talking about something that happened to them the day before, people usually have an anecdote “more interesting”, “more frightening”, “more fabulous” to add.
If someone has some kind of illness or is going through a difficult time, there will always be that person who is going through something much more terrible than the others. As if demeaning other´s people problems and dilemmas was some kind of contest. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
They say “Everything has a solution but death” and often they reply: “And many times death is the solution”.
I know there are extreme cases like certain illnesses when much suffering is involved, and we cannot see other way out but death itself, when medicine in general cannot offer help any more. Continue reading →
There was a lady who always went to the church to complain for the tragedies in her life, in a loud voice and a pitiful tone, she began to list all the misfortunes in her life and how unhappy she was. As a closing statement she always asked God to take her soul since she couldn’t handle this life anymore.
One day the priest decided to give that woman a lesson and hid behind the image of the divinity she always went to complain to. Continue reading →
I was feeling a little down for things didn’t go the way I was expecting them, I was failing to search for the lesson I needed to learn this time and maybe, just maybe looking for some sympathy and “understanding” (yes, receiving some pats on the back).
But instead of that, she began laughing at my problems. She began telling me about all her family and economic problems that of course “were many times worst” than mine. Or at least that is what she thought. Continue reading →
