"You can read all the
books you want. What makes the difference is your desire to look into a
mirror." Laura Schleshinger.
"The chains of habit
are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken."
In the last ... 50 years? has been installed in
our civilized society a very convenient habit: food packaging. Vegetables,
fruit, fish, soups ... canned (or other similar container). I say it is very
convenient because it is practical, accessible, comfortable, fast, clean. Sure,
we know that food has the same properties that the natural food and obviously
does not have the same taste.
"What will change your life not knowing
more .. but the decisions you make and the actions that you undertake."
For about 20 or 30 years, a new practice that is
gaining many adherents: the consumption of packaged thoughts. Books, seminars,
... titles like "Be a successful entrepreneur," "The 10 Keys to Success," "How
to be happy," "The 7 techniques for a better life" have, in a sense, the same
virtues of canned food: they are convenient, accessible, practical, comfortable,
fast and clean. Have only one problem: generally do not work.
discover for yourself what
you discover for yourself,
not what others find for you."
It seems that in this hectic world of the early
millennium do not have time for ourselves, we do not have time to go, to
explore, we want quick results. Perhaps this is why we, often, to tell us what
works and try to adopt them. We are looking for a recipe that is practical,
comfortable, fast. We do not want the path, only to arrive. We do not realize
that these "thoughts packaged", often well intentioned, are for someone who made
their own discoveries, his own experience. And the experience is not
transmitted. Apply the result without the experience is like trying to feed
without making the process of digestion.
"A wandering life is meaningless. Recall
that the meaning of life what we give. With the decisions of yesterday
morning we will build our."
Therefore, to return to give meaning to our lives,
to give depth to feel the taste (sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet) is important
to start building and find our own way. Evaluate and learn from other roads, but
not blindly follow.
"The human brain, and therefore the
capacity, but is determined by genetic conditioning is always unfinished
intellectually: it is possible to generate new neurons throughout life and
so they can learn and improve."
Dr. Pablo Argibay
We have everything you need: Our ability to watch
and observe, the ability to learn, to create, to question, to change ... Are we
ready to build our own life? Are we willing to leave the comfort of the routine?
Are we willing to risk being wrong? Are we willing to question the beliefs that
limit us? Are we willing to face the challenge?

I hope these simple reflections serve as a little
inspiration. Thank you for your attention and, especially, a huge THANK YOU to

A man child is not a man

himself the opportunity to continue to develop long after most adults have

No two fires alike.
There are large fires and fire guys
and fireworks of all colors.
There are people of serene fire
that does not even notice the wind,
and people crazy fire
that fills the air with sparks.
Some fires, fireworks, stupid,
not light or burn;
but others burn so hard life
you can not look at them without blinking,

How paved the way.
One day, a calf went through a virgin forest to return to their pasture. As it
was an irrational animal, opened a tortuous path, full of curves, up and down
The next day, a dog who was passing by the same path used to traverse the
forest. Next came a ram, head of the herd, that seeing the open space and made
his companions to follow through.
Later, men began to use this path: in and out, turned right and left, down,
deviating from obstacles, complaining and cursing, with good reason. But they
did nothing to create a new alternative.
After much use, the trail eventually become a wide road where the poor tired
animals under heavy loads, forced to travel three hours away might have been
defeated in thirty minutes if they had not followed the path opened by the calf.
Many years passed and the road became the main street of a village and, finally,
in the main street of a city. All complained of traffic, because the journey was
the worst possible.
Meanwhile, the wise old forest laugh, seeing that men tend to follow the path as
blind and open, without thinking, without ever wondering if that is the best
Noise pollution is currently the most crucial
element of pollution that can have. In Britain, a small, highly populated, it's
very, very hard to find silence. So what we have to do is learn to find silence
in the noise. And we need to find peace in chaos. You know, people think that to
find peace, and find solitude, and to find calm, you gotta go and find a large
piece of land into a wilderness, where nothing is happening, and is calm and at
peace. And this is love, is beautiful. But you know, we live in the world as it
is, we have to find solitude and peace and calm when all hell is dropping around
us. It is critical that we do this.
If you see and watch people, and ultimately applies to people, including myself,
find that we live in different prisons, mental, emotional, guilt, fear,
frustration, all these emotions of resentment. And yet, if you have 6 billion
people living on their own internal prison, their own individual prisons, then
collectively can not help but express a collective prison, a collective version
of that .... Working on ourselves is also work in the world because we are the
world and the world is us.
I think the chaos is in the eye of the beholder, really. We are heading towards
a period of chaos, but what is chaos? Chaos is often confused with transition.
When something is broken that needs to be broken, then there will be a period of
apparent chaos. But what will happen is more chaotic than if things develop as
needed, because this system has to fall before something better can replace
otherwise suffocate the system itself and delete it seeks to replace. So I think
we should not focus too much chaos as a necessarily bad thing.
