Attitude is everything

Attitude is everything; and will determine your reality. Whatever is happening to you, it will have a lot of power or nothing at all, depending on how you react to it and how you let that situation to affect you.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to itIt’s that simple, we have the power within ourselves to decide how a situation is going to affect our life, and our attitude against a situation, will give us our feelings and emotions, and that will give us our reality. A situation by itself has no power at all; we give the power to it through our thoughts.

 

 

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?” – Captain Jack Sparrow

 

 

No matter what is happening in our life, we can decide how we are going to react to it, allowing a situation to affect us or not. Our attitude is something we can change at any time, it might not be something easy to do, but is completely under our control, what gives us the power to decide how we are going to react to something and therefore how we are going to feel about it.

 

 

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” – Winston Churchill

 

 

There are moments where we might be able to change what is happening, and there are moments where we can’t do anything with what is happening to us, whatever the situation, you and only you can allow a situation to control your emotions.

It doesn’t matter what kind of person we are, everyone is going to have different situations in their lives that will make them miserable or successful, what it’s going to make the difference between them is their attitude.

 

 

“We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castenada

 

 

There are different people who have been through the same situation, but their realities were totally different, because their attitudes were completely different from each other. What really matters here is to not give up against a situation, do not let a situation to determine your thoughts, feelings and emotions, do not let a situation control your reality, it is your attitude what has all the power to change everything in a second.

Life would be much easier if we could learn how to control a situation by changing our attitude, instead of letting a situation to control us and our entire reality. You can accept a situation and be miserable or you can change your attitude and be happy, the choice is yours.

We can be the victims of a situation, and let it to rule our life, or we can be the creator of our own destiny, by choosing how we are going to think, and feel, and what are we going to do about what is happening to us right now, knowing that we have the power to decide how our reality is going to be no matter what is happening.

 

 

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou

 

 

Attitude is everything, depending on how you react to what is happening, is what will give your inner reality, regardless of what is really happening outside of you. Remember that you have the power to turn a situation around, what you have to do is to change your attitude, and you will change your world.

Forgiveness will set you free

Forgiveness wil set you free

 

Forgiveness will set you free, once you choose to forgive, you choose to separate yourself from any negative outcome you had in the past, that still resounds in your present, forgiveness is not something you give to others, forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself.

 

 

We have wrong beliefs about what forgiveness really mean, and that is why we doubt every time we want to forgive. What we need to understand is that forgiveness is something you do for you; it seems as it something that you only do for another, but in fact, the result of forgiveness is something that will benefit you more than anyone else.

 

We see forgiveness as a gift to another, while that can have some benefits to others, and it can give some kind of peace in someone else’s life, it will never let someone to be free from being guilty, that is something that they have to do for themselves, they have to forgive themselves in order to be free.

 

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.” –Jonathan Lockwood Huie.

 

We see the act of forgiveness as an act of weakness, but in fact it requires a lot of courage and strength to forgive, it’s the way that you have to step aside from the victim role, and see everything with a different perspective, and it will give you the power to control a situation, without giving it the opportunity to control your thoughts, emotions and life.

 

What someone does to another, is a way to reflect how they feel deep inside their heart, because when you feel happy, and you love yourself, there is no way that you can hurt someone else, it is always the one who has a broken heart, the one who breaks someone else’s heart.

 

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.”- Thich Nhat Hanh

 

So the best way to forgive, in fact the way we have to never have a motive to forgive again, it is by never taking something personally, even though an action seems to be against you, for the only purpose of hurting you, it is something never really done against you, but rather something that people do for themselves.

 

Think it this way: all of us have done something against someone, so first of all, nobody is innocent, so anybody can find a good motive to do something according to their belief, but what I want you to understand is that when you do something bad to another human being, you do that against you too, because what you give, you receive, is that simple, nobody that do a negative action can have positive feeling about it, the negativity and positivity simply do not go together.

 

“Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior, forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.” – Unknown

 

So knowing that, it is a very useful way to not take anything personally, what it will give you the opportunity to see everything from another perspective, you will not see yourself as a victim any more, and you will understand what is really happening and why is it happening.

 

By allowing yourself to seeing everything from another perspective, will give you a different reality, and you will understand them and forgive them, because you know that whatever somebody is doing to you, it is doing to himself too, because as I said before you can never do a negative action against someone and expect a positive result out of it, so that person is the first victim of all the pain that he is causing.

 

“The weak can never forgive; forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” – Mahatma Gandhi

 

So allow yourself the gift of forgiveness, do not let any situation stop you from moving forward, and set you free from all pain and sadness from the past, using that as strength and as a motivation to keep getting better, because you do not want to be like them, and you don’t want them to win, being their victim, and you either want to be condemned for something you have done in the past, believe me, you are better than that!

 

Forgive others and forgive yourself from any past situation and you will be free!

Love Revolution

The human beings are facing a serious problem; the society in which we live is rotting, our brains have been washed, and the big issue of all is our lack of love, we need to love again, we need a love revolution!

 

 when-the-power-of-love-overcomes-the-love-of-power-the-world-will-know-peace-jimi-hendrix

 

 

The virus that has been implanted in our brains have killed most of the most valuable things that we have as human beings: the ability to love ourselves, our world, our nature, and every single human being in this world, we have lost the power to create everything we want, and we have forgotten who we really are and why we are really here.

The greatest problem of all is that we have changed the meaning of love, forgetting what love really means. The world is under so much pain right now, because human beings are not only loving in a very selfish and superficial way, giving love to things with no value, and there we can find the worst of all diseases: the love for money.

 

 

 

“Only when the last tree has died, and the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught will we realize we can’t eat money.” – Cree Indian Proverb

 

 

We are more in love with money, that any other thing in the world. And how can I know that? Because you just need to see the world, and what is happening right now, to see that what I’m saying it’s true! The problem is that the people are so blind, that they cannot see what is really happening. Humans have lost their common sense, becoming victims of their madness for money and power, making the worst atrocities and all in the name of money. Our love for money is the first cause of the pain, suffering and destruction of human existence.

The world is dying, we are pushing and pushing all our resources to the limit, jeopardizing our existence. The world, our home, desperately needs love, but not the cheap and rotten love we give every day but we need real and pure love. We need to learn how to love again and spread love to the world, so we can heal our hearts and the whole world. The solution is to focus in what really matters, learning to love ourselves again, and everyone out there, we need to understand again that we are not separated from each other, and what we do to others, we do to ourselves too.

 

 

 

“The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.” – Dalai lama

 

 

 

There are some questions about human behavior that have been in my mind, which I cannot understand:

 

How is it possible that are still people out there killing each other, people stealing, people with no home, with nothing to eat, with no drinking water, with no access to education, health and with no kind of right to have a decent life?

How is it possible that we know that we are destroying our planet, knowing that the result will be the end of life on earth and we don’t do anything about it?

How is it possible that we keep separating people for nationality, race, religion, gender, age and social status giving human rights depending where you belong, having some of them more rights than others to have a decent life?

How is it possible that there are people still deprived of their freedom? How is it possible that slavery still exists?

How is possible that we have been blessed with a wonderful planet which have all the resources for the survival of the human beings and we destroy it every day by our careless actions?

How is it possible that we have been blessed with a magnificent human body, which allows us to experience the wonderful gift of the life on earth and we destroy it by consuming all the crap we consume each day, without taking care of it until it’s too late?

How is it possible that we have been blessed with an extraordinary mind, having all the power, abilities and skills to do and create wonderful things and we use it to destroy?

How is it possible that we have a beautiful heart with the wonderful ability to feel and to give love, and we use it to hate and hurt?

 

 

 

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

 

 

And as I said before, the answer to all this questions is that we have lost out common sense, we mixed up the real priorities in life with less important things, we forgot about love, and we have become so blind that we can’t see what is happening, and if we can see it, we just don’t care, because we don’t want anything to distract us from our desperate race after money, power, material things, and a social status that will make us stand out from the rest. We have become so superficial that we forgot what is really important in life, allowing the evil in all of us, to bring the worst of ourselves, and give it back to the world, what have created a reality of hate, suffering, insanity and pain.

And what it makes this entire situation sicker, is that we have accepted that reality as an unchangeable fact, taking the easy and cowardly way, as it takes a lot of courage to go against the flow and do what it takes to change the world. It’s easier to complain than do something to change it.

 

 

 

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Theresa

 

 

But today we can change history, we can create a better future. Don’t settle with this world believing what they told you about it, that this is the real one, the ideal, this perverse system has confused us, maddened us. But I know that deep inside yourself you know that, you want a better world, you yearn another world. If deep inside your heart you feel that this life doesn’t bring you joy and happiness, don’t settle, there is still hope. Life can be better that this sinister reality that consume our souls.

So, what the world and humanity need is that the people gather together, we need a group of soldiers with heart willing to love, being ready to build and not to destroy, giving all the love they can, to open the eyes of human beings, so we can change our reality and the whole destiny of the human race.

 

 

 

 

It is time my friends, to give the world what is lacking the most, it is time to stop with all sadness and pain and suffering in the world, we need to make humans remember that love exists, and so heal this hell that surround us. Let’s gather together in this revolution, in the name of God, in the name of love, and let’s go out fearless and courageous to conquer human’s hearts with love. It is time for a LOVE REVOLUTION!

Victims of expectation

Expectations

 

We are victims of expectation; the big problem of everything is not the problem itself, but rather our expectation about everything. Everything we say and do is accompanied by an expectation, and that is why sometimes our results are not as we wanted them to be, what it creates all the unnecessary sadness in ourselves.

 

Like I said before, we are victims of expectation, and that is why we’ll be disappointed over and over again, until we finally give up and lose, because if you are not careful, and if you don’t learn how to control it, expectations will always win, and if we get to that point where we let our expectations to win, then we get to the point where everything we want, every dream, every wish, every opportunity to make all of that become a reality, completely disappears.

 

After we have had a lot of results that haven’t met our expectations, We get to that place called disappointment, a place where we found unhappiness and sadness, and once you get to that place, it is really hard to get out from it, because after being there, Your actions will only be based on that, you will not have more expectations or at least good expectations, and you neither will have any vision of your dream.

 

“Expectation feeds frustration. It is an unhealthy attachment to people, things, and outcomes we wish we could control; but don’t.” – Steve Maraboli

 

Because once you are the victim of your own expectations, having as a result nothing more than disappointment, then you will walk your path with fear and doubts, having the belief that you shouldn’t have more expectations about anything, because not everything is possible, so your reality is going to look like that, and from now on you will face everything without enthusiasm, believing that it cannot end well based on your past experiences, and that belief will create your reality, and nothing will be like you have wanted it to be.

 

The problem with expectation, is that we have it because we actually need something. what it makes us be very attached to it, so we choose in first place something for what can give us, in order to satisfy that necessity, so if we don’t get what we want, we’ll be disappointed, and if we are disappointed, we stop believing, we lose faith and we forget about hope, so we accept a life of disappointment, sadness and suffering.

 

“Expectation is the root of all heartache” – William Shakespeare

 

So what we have to do, in order to be always happy without depending on the results, is not having more expectations, but what we have to do is make a decision according to what we feel and want in that moment without needing anything, giving all the best we can give, being happy, even if the result is not what we wanted, because we just decided to do something, because in that moment was what we wanted, not because we wanted to get something out of it.

 

Expectations give nothing more than disappointment, visualization gives nothing more than achievement. So what we have to do is to never forget whatever we want for our life, using the power of visualization, knowing that what we want exists and that sooner or later we are going to get that, forgetting any kind of expectation and being free to do, give and feel whatever we want.

 

“When you release expectations, you are free to enjoy things for what they are instead of what you think they should be” – Mandy Hale 

 

Remember that everything you give is a demonstration of what you already have, as we cannot give what we lack and we cannot receive what we don’t give. So everything you give, you will receive it back, multiplied.

 

So every time you want to have a new relationship, or get a new job, or anything you want to get, or achieve in your life, first you have to see your goal in your mind, and truly believe that is possible and that is a fact, and not having expectations, because you don’t need something, you already have it or you will have it, because you believe that!

 

“Trade Your Expectation to Appreciation and the World Changes Instantly” – Tony Robbins 

 

Walk your path fearless and doubtless, with confidence, truly believing that if something is meant to you, it will be at the best time for you. So do anything you want and feel, say whatever you want, think whatever you want to think, and above all love everyone around you without expecting anything in return, and I can guarantee that you will find true freedom and happiness.

How can I stay positive? Part II

Stay Positive
Hi everyone and thank you for reading! I really hope that my words can help you to have a wonderful and happy life! 🙂 So here is the second part of: How can I stay positive?

 

I was writing on the first part about Gratitude, a very useful and effective way to stay positive, if you learn to be grateful even in the hardest time, you will change your daily life experience in a second.

 

And so here comes the second cure for our short perception disease:

FOCUS

The problem of negativity is that it has a lot of power, and it will control you and your emotions if you let it do that. The solution? Stay focus in anything that makes you happy, whatever makes you smile, do that! And whatever makes you sad let that go!

 

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Buddha

 

There are two types of situations in this world: The one we can change, and the one we can’t.

So if there is something that makes you be unhappy and you have the chance to change that, then change that, it might take time or not, depending on what you want, what is important is to be positive while you are doing that, knowing that someday, somehow, you will change that.
The other situation is the one that we cannot change, what is happening or what is going to happen is something that is a fact and you can’t do anything about it, so being negative and sad about, is not going to make any change, it will make you feel better? I guess that no, right? So why don’t you just focus on things that you can actually change, on things that makes you happy?

 

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates

 

The truth about everything is that what is happening out there it is already happening, you may be able to change that or maybe not, but how you feel about it is something that you can control, by allowing yourself to focus on what makes you smile, in those things that push you forward and cutting the ropes of what is holding you back. Let go those things, the ones you can’t change, and be positive, by focusing on what you can change, you need to stay positive, no matter what happens, there is always a motive to be happy.

 

“Always remember, your focus determines your reality.” – George Lucas

 

And here goes the third cure, a hard one, but a very effective one:

 

FAITH

Having faith is a very good way to stay positive, because by having faith is a way to say to yourself and express to the world that everything is possible, and maybe nothing seems good out there, but faith allows me to see light in the darkness, it is a way the soul has, to let you know that everything is going to be alright!
No matter in what you believe, the important thing is to not lose faith, if you lose that, you lose all kind of possibility to achieve what you want to achieve, because if you can’t see something as possible, if you can’t see that in your mind, and if you can’t feel it with all your heart and soul, then that is what are you going to experience.

 

“Faith is seeing light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness.” – Anonymous

 

So no matter what is happening, have faith, anything you can imagine, you can achieve, it’s that simple, if you have faith even when your reality is not what you have dreamed of, have faith, because that’s what will make you feel better, and be positive, because you can’t see it now, but you know that is going to happen. So have faith and stay positive, knowing that nothing is going to remain as it is right now, no matter how bad it looks like.
And that lead us to the fourth and last cure and for that no less important, and that is:

 

ENERGY

Everything is energy, so if you want something, or if you want to change something, just give all energy to that, to things you want and love, to anything that makes you happy. The problem is that usually we give all the energy that we have to the things that we don’t want, and that is why we keep having the same feeling over and over again.
So if you want to stay positive in life, you need to give energy to positive things, because negativity is like a powerful magnet of energy, and if you let it control you, it will suck all your positive energy, leaving you weak, without any kind of strength to stay positive.

 

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.” – Albert Einstein.

 

Whatever energy you give to the world, is what you are going to receive, so if you allow a situation to consume you, you will only give negative emotions and actions, having as a result more and more negativity back to yourself.
So no matter what is happening, just look beyond that, look around and see all the things for what you should be grateful for, focusing only in the things that makes you happy, having faith, knowing that anything will be alright and giving positive energy, and so you will light up all the darkness that your eyes are seeing right now, and receiving more and more positive things back to you, that will light up your heart, and will fill your empty soul.

 

Stay positive, always.

How can I stay positive?

Stay Positive
People wonder every day, How can I stay positive? And my question is: How is it possible that you cannot stay positive? And the problem is that we have a very short perspective of what is really important and what is really happening.

 

There is a fact: We have eyes and we can see, but the reality we can see is actually far less than the real reality. We cannot see what is really happening, we see according to what we believe.

The problem is that we live in an upside down world, and we have put in first places in our list of happiness what should be in the last positions, and our wrong idea of a happy and joyful life is what have created all the pain, unhappiness, sadness, hate and suffering in the world, if we could just change our perspective about life, we could just change everything.

 

 

 “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

 

 

 

We go after things that don’t matter, we struggle every day to get material things, forgetting what is really important and why are we here on this planet.

So no matter what is happening in your life, you have the power and the ability to be happy and to have everything you really want in life, you have to learn to see the positive side of everything, you may not be able to see it right now, but believe me, there is a positive side in everything, the trick is to enlarge our short and limited perspective of life, if you do, you will see what you haven’t seen so far, you will see a completely and amazing new reality.

 

 

 

“Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind, the goal is to find it.” – Buddha

 

 

 

So what is the first and one of the most important cures to our lack of wider perspective disease?

 

And the first cure, the most important one, the one that it can change your life in a second, the best solution to negativity and the first motive to stay positive and happy is:

 

GRATITUDE

 

And maybe you already know that or maybe you don’t, but the fact is, that if you are not being positive and if you are complaining about any kind of situation you may be going through is because you are not being truly grateful.

 

 

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln

 

 

And what I really mean with this is that this cure doesn’t really work if you just say that you are grateful, you have to really feel it, with all your heart and soul.

There is so much in your life to be grateful for;tthe problem is that we are so used to that kind of things, that we don’t really pay too much attention to it, because we are too focused on things that don’t really matter.

The most important things you should be grateful for is for being alive, because if you are alive it means that you still have the opportunity to do a lot of things and that you still can enjoy the most beautiful things in the world, while other people are fighting to survive or also some of them don’t even have the half of what you have.

 

 

“The struggle ends when gratitude begins.” – Neale Donald Walsh

 

 

If we have love, we have everything. If you can enjoy a hug, a kiss, an act of kindness, a word of compassion, understanding, a smile, and a simple touch you have more than enough to be grateful  and happy for.

If you can breathe and your heart is beating, if you are able to give love and receive love in any way, if you have people who will always be there for you, if you have food in your fridge, drinking water from the tap, a roof, a bed, a cup of coffee in a winter night, a warm shower, clothes, and you have all the freedom to think, to speak, and to do whatever you want,  you are richer and have more power than you ever imagined., and no matter what other things can happen, you can be grateful for all that and be happy.

 

 

“If you want to find happiness, find gratitude.” – Steve Maraboli

 

We have to look at the things that are really important, and be grateful for that, knowing that we are blessed, as there a lot of people who don’t have even 1% of what you have right now.  So how can you stay positive? Look at those things, the ones that make you happy, the ones that are really important.

And then there are 3 more cures, that have really helped me to change my life:

Focus, Faith and Energy.

 

So if you want to know more about the next cures, don’t forget to come back later this week for the second part of How can I stay positive? 🙂

The conqueror of our mind

No fear
We born and we are immediately condemned to a life imprisonment, without having any possibility to appeal, we live our lives as prisoners, victims of our own minds; we let the conqueror of our mind to rule our life.

 

So we forget who we really are and we start being what the conqueror wants us to be, but what we don’t really know is that actually it doesn’t really exist, it is an invention of our own minds, so we condemn ourselves to a life of suffering and sadness.

And what is that invention that doesn’t exist rather than in our minds? That invention is called FEAR and we create it with our own thoughts, letting it be the driver of our life, the creator of our reality and our destiny.

Everything we think and do is related to fear, what is ironic is that what human beings look most in this life is to be happy, but what we only do is to act based in our fears, and that is why we only find unhappiness, because we run away from anything that can give us happiness.

 

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” – Joseph Campbell

 

So the only way to find happiness is to learn to face the fears, and then push them away from our way, because unhappiness is the result of fears, so while you have it, you will not be able to find happiness, and your dreams will be only dreams for the rest of your life, because you have chosen fear for your life, and dreams can never become a reality if you let fears to control your life.

Fear is lethal, because being alive and walking doesn’t mean that you are not dead inside, because fears consumes your spirit, as you are the results of your fears, and your reality is based on them.

 

“The only fear we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

Fears are only the sum of wrong belief about everything. Our belief based in our past experiences and the experiences of others have made us to have a wrong idea of what life is really about. Every thought and action that leads us to unhappiness is based on fears, living then in an imaginary reality. We can’t see what is really happening, because fears make us blind, it controls our mind and our life, and makes us be miserable.

 

“Fear has two meanings: Forget everything and run or face everything and rise. The choice is yours.” – Zig Ziglar

 

The truth about everything is that fears don’t exist, they are the product of our own mind, fear is only an illusion that we create as a way to protect ourselves from any kind of suffering, which in fact is what creates all the suffering and pain we face every day.

We need to change our belief about life and about ourselves, belief created by society, imposed in our minds and accepted by us which creates all the fears in our life.

We are afraid to die, but we are more afraid to live, we have the concept that life is suffering, so we try to avoid it by not facing what we are afraid of, but in fact we are making those fears a reality. In the end what we don’t want is to suffer, but in fact allowing those fears to become a reality by controlling ourselves, makes us to be unhappy, to suffer and be sad, living in an unreal prison of unhappiness created by us.

 

“Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.” – Dorothy Thompson

 

Once you choose to live without depending on the results of any decision by giving more energy to what you really want rather than giving it all to your fears, and once you face it, knowing that are only an illusion of your mind, you will find true happiness.

So fear nothing, don’t listen to them, fears say nothing more than lies, don’t be afraid of losing something, because being afraid and pushing away everything you want will only make you lose the most wonderful thing we have: The life and the possibility to enjoy it, being truly happy and making any dream a reality.

 

Face your fears, follow your heart, and set yourself free!

Prisoners of the system

We think we live in a free world, we think we are free, but in fact that is only an illusion, because we are prisoners of the system, the one we think we dominate, but which in fact it dominates us, having us under its control. We think, we act, and we talk based on the beliefs that they have imposed on us. There’s no such thing as freedom, our freedom is an illusion.

 

 

no-social-system-will-bring-us-happiness-health-and-prosperity-unless-it-is-inspired-by-something-greater-than-materialism-clement-attlee

 

 

We have been categorized, such as in a product catalog, in which the human beings are separated from each other by nationality, religion, social belief, gender, race, sexual preferences, external appearance, social status, and so on. An infinite catalog, that define us and which we use to determinate if someone is better than other, and if deserves something or not. Based on that belief, we separate each other and is there where the worst miseries of the world come into play.

We start to judge and condemn others, we compete, we do horrible things to each other, we envy, we hate, we become selfish and without feelings and we think based on the belief that we are all different. Some people believe that are more superior than others simply because they belong to the privileged group inside this catalog created by the society in which we live. These few people, the elite, the privileged believe that they have the right to hurt, humiliate, torture and even kill other human being. The problem is that we sell our souls day after day, ceasing to be our true self, to become a puppet from this twisted, illogical and selfish system in which we live.

 

 

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” – Morpheus (The Matrix)

 

 

We live in a world where the appearance is the primordial, in which our idols are plastic dolls, unreal and with empty minds. We came to a point of such madness, that we have come to believe that to achieve the beauty standards imposed by this society makes us superiors, believing that we have the right to hurt another one that doesn’t meet the stupid requirements of the beauty industry. The worst part is that some people have killed themselves because they have been consumed by these stupid, unreal, fictitious and meaningless standards, believing that they didn’t deserve to live and be happy by just being the way they were.

It’s a world full of enslaved people, prisoners of money and material things, for which we have committed the worst atrocities. It’s for money that a man loses himself, forgetting all types of values or respect for another human. We forget to live by going after material things that don’t give us any kind of happiness, as we always go after the new, the best, and blinded we go through life consuming the crap that they sell to us, making that our fake motive of happiness. What we don’t know is that everything we buy has a price, and the price is not valued in papers with a number on it, but its real value it’s valued in the amount of time of our lives we spend to earn it.

 

 

“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” – Henry David Thoreau

 

 

We live in a world where we complain about injustice, but we do not do anything about it, we live in a world where we are always looking what other people do or cease to do, and we don’t look at what we are doing, we complain, we blame, but when we need to do something to change the world, we don’t do anything and we only have excuses.

We live in a world where we are too worried about ourselves that we cannot see around us, there are people killing each other in wars and we don’t do anything about it, there is people starving because they don’t have anything to eat and we throw food every day, there is people who don’t have drinking water and we waste it like if there were an inexhaustible resource of it. But human beings have everything: mind, intelligence, skills, abilities, and resources, everything to make this world, a wonderful place, but we destroy it, and we self-destruct day after day, blind and lost in a complete wrong system, that condemn many people and benefit a few.

 

 

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

 

The day we gather together, the day we stop blaming each other, the day we stop separating ourselves by nationality, language, culture, gender, rich or poor, the day we begin to value the important things of life, the day we act against injustice and we stop blaming others, and the day we stop making the biggest criminals of the world to become more and more rich by consuming the crap they sell us: clothes made with slaves, alcohol that destroy people, electronics that make people stupid, cigarettes that kill people, drugs that consume us, food that poison us and all the trash they give to us, and the day we start being the change we want to see in the world by doing unto others as we would like them to do unto us, and above all, the day we start loving each other, that day all the suffering, the pain and injustice will be over.

We have everything, there is nothing that we don’t have, and the problem is that we don’t do anything. We born, we live, we exist and we die like puppets, believing that we are somebody, when in fact we are dominated and handled by someone else, by the ones who belongs to the elite club, the ones who made this system, the ones who locked us up.

 

 

 

 

Wake up my friends, we still have time to free ourselves from the chains of this society that oppress us, and get the victory, for us, and for all those that their voices have been silenced! Let’s raise our voices and get back our freedom!  

Letting go of the past

Let go of the past
Letting go of the past, in order to be in the present, is the best way to have a happy, fulfilled and joyful life.

 

Our past consumes us, no matter how good or how bad it was, it consume us, and not only ourselves but it consumes our present and our whole life if you don’t let it go.

 

We live tied to a past world, which has defined us and which we now use as an excuse to be who we are and to act as we act now. Each of our decisions, every thought, every action, and every word out of our mouth is based on our past.

The experiences we have in our daily life, which generates our feelings, are not much different from others we already had like pain, sadness, anger, anxiety, happiness, excitement, joy, and so on. But our reality, the reality based on how we feel about what is happening has much to do with what has happened before. Our mind seeks similarities to past events and how we reacted to those events, which is why we react now as we reacted before, without giving us the opportunity to analyze what is really happening right now and act based on what we really believe and feel at that time.

Living tied up to the past creates fears, it create obstacles that prevent us to reinvent ourselves in every situation, it doesn’t let us go forward with confidence, blocking us, making us who we were and forgetting who we might be now. We stop doing things or we can’t go forward with our friends, romantic or family relationships, jobs, and so on, because in the past we have failed, allowing the past to cause fears and to define us as people who have failed forever. Or maybe our past was too good, so we live and we let us die in that past, without enjoying the present, and so as we are unable to let go of the past, we forget to live today in our present, so we believe that former days were better, we stick ourselves to that and so it reflects our current reality, a reality full of sadness and bitterness.

We bring the past to the present day after day, a past that dominate us, who speaks and acts for us, a past that blocks us and makes us prisoners, losing any ability to act, to think and to be what we really want to be, losing any possibility of freedom.

 

 

”Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha

 

 

Living in the past creates an imaginary reality, everything we perceive every day is based on what we have experienced, for what we live in an illusion, which only creates unhappiness since our feelings about what is happening to us day after day are wrong.

The past seizes our present, moving us away from everything we really want in life, we let the past to create our destiny for what can dominate us, so it can think and feel for us.

So then my friends, we don’t get anything we want, or we get it and then we lose it, and that is why we go after of anything we don’t deserve, and we just not value what we have now, because we live in our past, which defines us and makes us act as we act.

We move away from people who love us, we avoid relationships with people because in the past we haven’t been loved, and so by living in the past we cannot see the current reality and we see one that is totally imaginary, we believe that everything that resembles a past relationship that was unsatisfactory will be the same even if it indicates that is totally different. Or if in the past was good, but for some reason ended, we stay in that past where everything was better, and we believe that it will not be another like that one so we avoid any kind of relationship in the present. We avoid any situation that can generate suffering according to what we believe based on our past experiences, locking us in a prison that only creates that suffering that we once wanted to avoid.

 

 

”Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – The Lion King

 

 

We avoid going for what we want, we avoid making our dreams come true because at some point we have gone through a situation where we have failed, or in which we saw someone fail or where we have the belief that someone imposed on us that we can never achieve what we want because we simply don’t have the skills or abilities to make our dreams a reality, accepting that past as a present, and accepting ourselves as incapable and unsuccessful, accepting a reality that could be different if we just let the past behind, believing in ourselves and if we just lived in the present, since each second is a new opportunity to be who we really are, forgetting who we were or who they told us that we were.

No matter what happened in your life, what is important is that you are here today, that you can breathe and you can live, come back to the present, don’t let the past to keep defining you rather be the one who uses the past to a way of defining yourself, to a way to say this happened to me and I were like that but now I am what I am because of that, because I didn’t let the situation that happened in my past to destroy me, I used that as a motivation to become what I became now!

 

 

”No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” Buddha

 

 

No matter if your past was a total failure and if nothing was good for you, today is a new day, a new day to affirm and act as a new you, because you’re who you say you are, your failures, your fears, your old beliefs, whatever you have said, that doesn’t define you, you do that every day with your thoughts and actions, and you can create any reality you want to create.

 

You have the power and ability to change your whole existence, and how can you do that?

Leaving the past where it belongs, in the past!

 

It has been bad or good, it does not matter, leave it there, and with that you will also leave your fears behind as well. You will leave what you was before to become who you choose to be now, and you will get what you always wanted: love, job, friendship, experiences, and so on. Leaving the prison of the past behind, to return to be free again, to believe and dream, to make all your dreams come true, to define you as what you really are: a wonderful human being with an infinite capacity to get everything you ever wanted to have.

 

Live in the present, create your future, leave your past behind.

Do Not Be Afraid to Be Alone

We live in a world, where being alone is something that scares us, that is why many time we lose ourselves, forgetting who we really are, being what we are not, in order to be accepted by others so we don’t have to face the dreaded solitude. But solitude is not something we should be scared of, but the opposite, as sometimes it is the best way to find ourselves.

 

“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.” - Arthur Schopenhauer

 

If we pay attention to what is happening around us, we can discover just by looking at people and their relationship with others, that actually being alone could be a benefit for our soul and life rather than a drawback, and you might be wondering why? Why it would be a benefit? Because being alone makes us reflect, it allows us to discover ourselves, because it is in the silence of our solitude where we can hear our inner voice. Solitude takes out the best version of ourselves, and it makes us find who we really are.

By being alone we allow us to move away from the outside world, and so we begin to think for ourselves, we question things, we start to find answers to our deepest questions, and sometimes that can be really hard, because it makes us realize that we were wrong in a lot of aspects in our life, especially in our idea of who we really are. So we start to listen to our own soul, and suddenly we find what we were looking for, we find ourselves.

 

 

 

”It’s beautiful to be alone. To be alone does not mean to be lonely. It means the mind is not influenced and contaminated by society.’’ – Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

 

Nowadays one of the biggest problem we are facing is that we actually don’t know who we really are, we just are what others wanted us to be, we are a product of society, so we accept that reality, but deep inside our hearts we feel incomplete, like if something was missing in ourselves, and so we found ourselves in the middle of a battle between the reality of our mind and the reality of our soul.

The problem is that not being alone with ourselves is blocking us to be what we really wanted to be. The fear of being alone makes us have the necessity to be with others, so we are what others want us to be in order to not be alone, or we surround ourselves with people who make us feel more lost, empty and the worst thing is that we find ourselves more alone than before.

 

 

 

 ”Don’t be scared to walk alone. Don’t be scared to like it.’’ – John Mayer

 

 

 

So I learned, that there is no way that you can find what you have been looking for, if you don’t start by loving to be with your own company. Once you know yourself and you do the things you love, and above all once you start loving yourself more you will learn that solitude is something that gives you the opportunity to be who you always wanted to be, and do the things you ever wanted to be. You will discover that being alone gives you wings to dream and discover a completely new you, without being affected and influenced by others, then you will enjoy life more, and everything that you have ever dreamed of will come true.

If we could just learn to be alone, enjoying our own company, we would find how amazing we really are, and what can we actually do without needing anyone else to do it. Therefore, do not be afraid to be alone, because it is not a punishment but a blessing, take advantage of it, and do not be afraid to talk and laugh with yourself. Enjoy your own company, do what you love to do, travel to the places you have always wanted to go, listen to your favorite music, or read your favorite book. Sometimes to be alone is what we need, because when we are only with ourselves we are free, and we are not influenced nor controlled by society, and that way we can enjoy being our true self.

 

 

 

”I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.’’ – Oscar Wilde

 

 

 

Learn to be alone, do not be afraid to be only with yourself, love the silence, love your own voice, enjoy your own company, and feel comfortable being with your own soul. Learn to separate yourself from people who don’t let you be yourself, people who don’t let you grow and evolve.

When you stop being afraid to be alone, looking its positive side, you will learn to enjoy every second alone, and you become wiser at the time of choosing the people to whom surround yourself with. You will take your time to choose the right people, with no rush, without having the necessity to depend on others.

 

 

 

 ”I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.’’ – Robin Williams

 

 

 

We are going to be alone many times in our lives, either by choice, or because there will be no other choice, sometimes we will face it abruptly, and in that moment can be very painful, but in that solitude that is not absolute, because nobody can be really alone if we learn to love our own company, you will find your own voice, you will listen to your soul, you will enjoy your own company, you will find yourself, and you will discover that being alone was not something negative, but very positive. Solitude is a gift if we know how to take advantage of it. You can change your situation at any time, you must simply change the way you see life.

 

 

 

Learn to love your own company, enjoy every moment with yourself, and change your life!
