Mundo Superficial

Vivimos en un mundo superficial en donde lo importante es tener una vida y un aspecto que luzcan bien en el exterior sin importar el interior, lo profundo, y lo esencial. Estamos tas preocupados sobre nuestro aspecto externo que nos hemos olvidado de prestar atención al tipo de persona en la cual nos hemos convertido. Nos hemos olvidado que no somos simplemente un cuerpo, sino que somos almas, almas que habitan un cuerpo.

Las relaciones entre los humanos han entrado en una decadencia que parece no tener vuelta atrás, ¿y por qué? Porque hemos cambiando nuestros más valiosos valores que tenemos como seres humanos por basura barata, la cual ha consumido nuestro espíritu y alma, olvidándonos lo que realmente es importante, alejándonos del camino, y perdiendo el control de nuestras vidas.

Tener un buen aspecto, y poseer grandes cantidades de cosas materiales se ha vuelto la más grande motivación de nuestras vidas. Ya no nos preocupamos por la persona que somos, nos ha dejado de importar si somos seres de amor, compasión, entendimiento y amabilidad, si somos leales, o respetuosos, ya no nos preocupa como tratamos a otros, vivimos en la parte superficial de la vida sin adentrarnos en nada mas profundo, ya que gastamos la mayoría de nuestro tiempo haciendo que nuestra vida luzca bien en el exterior para así ser aceptados y pertenecer a esta sociedad superficial.

Si nos ha dejado de importar nuestros valores y nuestra alma, ¿Qué es entonces lo que realmente nos importa? Nos importa como nuestra imagen es vista por la sociedad. Es ese el motivo por el cual nos importa tener la mejor ropa, cuanto más se vea la marca mejor, nos importa tener la casa más grande, el auto más lujoso, el ultimo teléfono móvil, el televisor más caro, y todas las cosas materiales que nos han otorgado una idea errónea sobre la felicidad. Además de esto nos importa tener el cuerpo perfecto, ser hermosos, nos preocupa el maquillaje, el pelo, las uñas, el bronceado, la dieta más nueva y más absurda, además nos enloquece el dinero y nos obsesiona tener cada vez más, nos importa la fama, el poder, y todas aquellas estúpidas cosas creadas por aquellos que dominan el mundo para entretener nuestras mentes y hacernos ignorantes, para así ellos poder volverse más ricos y poderosos. Hemos caído en un juego siniestro, que nos ha quitado todo aquello que nos hacía humanos, volviéndonos objetos sin alma, victimas de todas aquellas despiadadas corporaciones.

Las relaciones sociales entre los humanos se han vuelto un desastre, los valores más importantes están en peligro de extinción, cada ser humano se preocupa de sus propios asuntos, sin importarle que le sucede a la persona de al lado. El mundo muere cada día, hay personas que viven una vida de miseria, muriendo con agonía, gritando por ayuda, y llorando en silencio, personas que han sido olvidadas por nosotros, y por todos aquellos que están más preocupados en obtener más dinero, más poder, más cosas materias, más belleza, más seguidores en las redes sociales, y más estupideces. La mayoría están tan ocupados que no tienen tiempo para ayudar a otros, o siempre tienen una excusa para no hacerlo, luego están los que hacen algo por el beneficio de alguien más, y otros que lo hacen por su propio beneficio, o por búsqueda de reconocimiento.

 

 

 

 

“Me gustaría que todos pudieran ser ricos y famosos y conseguir todo lo que siempre han soñado. Así podrán ver que esa no es la respuesta.” – Jim Carrey

 

 

 

 

Si, vivimos en un mundo superficial. Un mundo en donde las personas solo se preocupan por las apariencias, por lo externo, y así se han olvidado de lo que más importa, que es todo aquello que no se ve, el interior, lo más profundo y esencial de la vida. Esto ha generado distintas consecuencias como, por ejemplo: Padres que están más preocupados por sus trabajos, por generar más dinero, para comprar una casa más grande, un auto más lujoso. Padres que han olvidado de los valores más importantes, criando a sus hijos sin ellos, pero si con cosas materiales. Padres que se preocupan más por lo externo de la vida de sus hijos, sin importar si crecen sin valores, sin apreciación por la vida, la naturaleza y todo ser de este planeta.

Luego tenemos parejas que se preocupan más por lucir bien en una foto para las redes sociales, antes que preocuparse en lo más importante de una relación que es el amor, el respeto, la honestidad, la compresión y la amabilidad. Estas parejas se preocupan más del que dirán, de las apariencias ante el resto, antes que preocuparse por ser honestos, leales, e incondicionales entre ellos. Luego tenemos personas en los trabajos que solo se enfocan en ser los mejores, en competir constantemente, en obtener más dinero, estas personas no están preocupadas por si tienen que destruir a otro para conseguir el éxito. También podemos ver amigos que son leales en los buenos momentos, pero que desaparecen rápidamente en los malos. Amigos que parecen ser amigos, pero cuando llega el momento de alegrarse por el éxito de otro, no lo hacen, o te sonríen con una sonrisa falsa mientras te clavan un puñal por la espalda.

 

 

 

 

“La belleza es cómo te sientes por dentro. Y se refleja en tus ojos. No es algo físico.” – Sophia Loren

 

 

 

 

Los ejemplos son interminables. Lo que quiero demostrar aquí es que hemos hecho a un lado lo esencial y más importante de la vida, y nos hemos enfocado en lo superficial. Esto no significa que debamos dejar de aspirar a tener más posesiones materiales, o un trabajo mejor, o más dinero, o poder, o dejemos de prestarle atención a nuestro aspecto exterior, pero no debe volverse nuestra prioridad, para así no dejar de lado aquellas cosas que realmente importan, que llenan nuestra alma y curan nuestras heridas. Es cuando vivimos de forma más espiritual que nuestra vida se ve más completa. Vivir de una forma más profunda es lo que le da otro sentido a la vida y un significado aún mayor.

Si intentáramos primero lucir bien en el interior, es decir, si intentáramos enfocarnos primero en el interior, y trabajáramos más en convertirnos la mejor versión de nosotros mismos, las relaciones entre los humanos serian menos falsas y más reales, nuestro amor seria menos falso y más real, más profundo y puro, y así este mundo sería mejor para todos. Nos enseñaron que para tener éxito hay que competir, hay que destruir al de al lado, mentira, porque al final el éxito de todos depende de nuestra unidad, de trabajar en equipo.

 

 

 

 

Lo que tú puedes darle a este mundo como humano para hacerlo un mejor lugar para ti y para todos, para crear un mundo de amor y paz, es lo más importante que existe, todo lo demás, todo lo superficial es secundario. Unámonos y juntos crearemos un mundo mejor.

The Benefits of Living a Minimalist Lifestyle

Have you ever thought how would it be to live a minimalist lifestyle? Can you imagine how your life would be if you wouldn’t have the necessity to have more in order to be happier? Wouldn’t that be the key to a more fulfilled and balanced life? Wouldn’t that be freedom? Absolutely. Our life and our own minds would benefit from a minimalist lifestyle. Let’s analyze together the benefits of living a minimalist lifestyle.

 “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” - Socrates #minimalist

 

Nowadays we live in a world where we strive to have more. The problem is that we have accepted the idea that more equals more happiness, but the truth is, the more you want, the less happy you are, but how can this be true? Because in that way, we exchange our freedom for possessions, why? Because material possessions are not really paid with money, but with time, time that we spend from our life in order to get those possessions, and if we have less time to enjoy our life, how can we be really happy?

We have fallen into the trap of believing that the more we have, the more successful and happy our life will be, and if we look at it from a particular perspective, we can say that’s true. The problem is, that moment of satisfaction lasts as the blink of an eye. We feel happy, successful and fulfilled, but quickly that sensation starts to vanish, and we begin to feel the same feeling of emptiness, becoming addicts to the idea of having more and more, so we can feel one more time, fulfilled and happy

 

 

 

 “We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic. It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality. We crave things we neither need nor enjoy.” – Richard Foster

 

 

 

The ultimate problem is that the more we want, the more dependent we become, and what we own, begins to own us, and that way, the less free we become. Therefore, our happiness is compromised by the things we possess and do not possess. That way we always see the glass half-empty, giving us the feeling of dissatisfaction and emptiness, and so, desperately we go after more things in order to get back our happiness, which we recover momentarily.

As we can see, the idea that having more is the key to happiness is mistaken. What I mean is, that is okay to want to acquire more possessions in your life, but the idea that those things will make us have a fulfilled and happy life is wrong. If this were true, people who can have everything would be happy, and people with nothing would be miserable, and that is not exactly what happens in this world, just because possessions doesn’t determine our happiness. Therefore, possessions are not the key factor for a happy life.

 

 

 

“The things you own end up owning you. It’s only after you lose everything that you’re free to do anything.” – Tyler Durden (Fight Club)

 

 

 

The truth is that is okay to aim for a life where we can get everything we want, but we should never depend on material possessions, or any other superficial thing in our life, in order to be happy. That is exactly what I mean with living a minimalist lifestyle. It is to live in a way where our happiness, freedom and peace of mind does not depend on material things. It is being happy with what we already have, without having the necessity to obtain more things in order to be happy.

Living a minimalist lifestyle means to set away from our mind and daily life, everything that distract us from being happy and at peace. It is being free to feel good at any moment, without depending on external things. When we live in a minimalist way, we focus our mind in what it is really important, what gives us the power to control our feelings, and not letting other things to control us.

 

 

 

“The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.” – Elise Boulding

 

 

 

When we live a minimalist lifestyle we focus on the things that really matter. It is the best way to become our true self, because we are no longer distracted with other less important things, what can help us develop our true potential. The truth is, we do not need much to live a happy and fulfilled life, but what we need is less things that can distract our mind from the small and more essential things that really make a difference in our lives, those things fill our emptiness, complete our soul, without those things we are lost, and we will always fall in the game of having more things in order to complete it, and this is something that will never happen, because our soul is completed with those things that can’t be bought.

 

 

 

Let’s focus our mind on the important aspects of our lives, keeping the things that are really essential, feeling content with less, leaving behind all the unnecessary things that only forbid us from enjoying our lives.

Superficial World

We are living in a superficial world where having a life and an appearance that looks good on the outside has become more important than looking good on the inside. We are more concerned about our external appearance that we forgot to pay attention to the kind of person we have become, a person who has forgotten that we are not just a body, but we are a soul which has body.

 

If the whole world was blind, how many people would you impress?

 

 

Relationship between humans have entered into a decay with almost no return, and why? Because we have changed our priceless values that we have as human beings for cheap rubbish, that has consumed our soul and spirit, forgetting what is really important, moving away from the path and losing control of our own lives.

Looking good and having a lot of material things have become the most important motive for our lives, we no longer focus in what kind of person we are, we don’t care anymore if we are a being of love, compassion, understanding or kindness, we don’t care anymore how we treat others as persons, because we don’t care how we treat ourselves, and if we do things to nourish our soul or not, we don’t care about anything of that, because we spend our time in making our external life to look good, and be accepted by others.

 

 

 

 

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” – Oscar Wilde

 

 

 

 

So what do we care if we don’t care anymore about our soul and our values? We care about how our image is viewed by society. We care about having the best clothes, the bigger the logo of the brand in our clothes the better, we care about having the more expensive house, car, mobile phone, television, and all the material things that have given us a wrong idea of happiness, we care about to have a great body and to be the most beautiful, we care about our makeup, hair, nails, we care about the tanning, we care about the new and absurd diet, we care about to have lots and lots of money, we care about being famous, about having power, and so on, an infinite list of stupid things created by those who dominate the world to entertain our minds and make us ignorant, so they can become more powerful, rich and do whatever they want with the world and every person on it.

The relationships between humans are a disaster, all the human values are in danger of extinction, humans are worried in their own businesses, and they don’t care what is going on with the person next to them, the world is dying thanks to us, there are people who have been forgotten by us, dying in agony, screaming for help, and crying in solitude, people whom nobody cares, because those people are too worried in getting more money, more power, more material things, more beauty, and more stupidity, so they don’t have time to help others, and some of them if they do that is only because they are looking recognition.

 

 

 

“I wish everybody could get rich and famous and have everything they ever dreamed of, so they would know that’s not the answer.” – Jim Carrey

 

 

 

 

So yes, this is a superficial world, where people are only worried about external matters, and when you are only focused on external matters, you forget to pay attention to the internal matters, and that can only lead us to a disaster, a disaster that you can see everywhere. Parents who are only focused in their jobs, their money, their house, their cars, parents that have forgotten about values, parents who are raising their kids with material things, and parents who want their kids to have a life and an image that only looks good on their outside, but they don’t see that their kids are growing with no values, no appreciation for life, for nature, or for other human beings.

There are also couples in a relationship that are more worried to be a couple who looks perfect in a photograph for social media, rather than being worried about being a couple who really love each other in every moment, day after day, those people in this relationship are more worried in their appearance, rather than being worried in being honest, loyal, and unconditional among them. People at work who are only worried about being the best, about getting more money, those people don’t care if they have to destroy another one to be successful. Friends who are friends in the good moments, but friends who disappear in the bad ones, friends who seems to be friends, but when comes the time to be happy for the success of the other one, they stab you in the back, while they smile you in your face, just because the jealousy within them consumed their heart.

 

 

 

 

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” – Sophia Loren

 

 

 

 

So I could just go on forever with this examples that shows that people are more concerned about external things while they don’t care about what kind of person are on the inside, I’m not saying we should not worry about getting better, or getting more money to get what we want, or getting a better job, or a better house, or car, or whatever, I’m not saying that we don’t have to try to look more beautiful, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t try to be successful in every aspect of our life, what I’m saying here is that we should prioritize our soul and spirit first, we should try to be better person, we should try to first love ourselves as we are right now with our perfections and imperfections, and we should try to be more kind, more tolerant, or to be more understanding, we should try to be more concerned about giving others what we want to receive, we should try to love each other more and then afterwards we should try to get all the material, recognition, power, or whatever you want in your life.

If we could try to look good in the inside first, and become a better person, every relationship between human would be less fake and more real, our love would be less fake and more real and pure, and then our life would be much better.

 

 

What you can give to this world as human being to make it a better place for you and others, to make it a place of love and peace, is the most important thing, all else is secondary.
