"The real voyage of
discovery consists not in seeking new ways but in having new eyes".
VISION OF PRESENT
Usually when we talk about vision, speech of Vision, talk about the north that
guides our direction, purpose or goal to accomplish. Y. .. What about our vision
Perhaps we believe that this is given, that is, as we see ... and in this case
would not make sense to design a vision of it. However, if we accept that we do
not know how things are, if we become aware that we have no access to reality as
it is, designing a vision of this begins to make sense. Especially when I
realize that depending on what you're watching and how they are seeing, there
are certain ways, actions, feelings, possible ... and others
here I can question me What I see when I see what I see?
Where do I focus when I look? What there is, or what is missing? What criticism
or recognition? What weakness or strength? Does the possibility or
What am I looking to watch? Is there something you want to defend? Maybe my
image? Are my reasons? Maybe justify? Do I make contact with the other? Do I see
it as a legitimate one? Do I cooperate or compete?
Where do I look? How long the fear? How long have confidence? How long have
certainty? How long the comparison?
Okay, then, to ask what is the vision I have of my partner, my children, my
parents, my boss, my staff, my teammates? What is this vision I have of myself,
of my life? What if you start to look the other way?
Sometimes our vision gets "trapped" in an issue, a problem in a way of looking
... and so were as blind. Some time ago I saw an ad where a boy, sitting in a
wheelchair, said "I have MS, but do not live as if all I have." Surely this way
of looking at this view of this we have, not the only possible ... What if we
began to explore new ways of seeing, of looking ... ad-watch?
VISION OF THE FUTURE
Do you remember Fowl game? Blindfolded, a few laps y. .. out to play. Imagine
now that you get up from your chair ... blindfolded, a few laps y. .. out life.
Where do I go? What is this? Where is the door?Oops, I bumped into something! We
tested each step, feeling insecure, confused, without sense of direction.
Something happens to us when we have a Vision. We do not see. Vision guides us,
allows us to define a course, gives us meaning ... meaning in relation to the
direction and meaning in relation to the meaning. Vision adds a new dimension to
our lives, like the sense of sight, we see a greater distance, more deeply.
allows us to "hear the call": What is the call of my heart? What is the call
that makes my life? The Vision has some poetry ... inspires us, love us, allows
us to transcend, to dream, done from a new context.
To start viewing, we ask: What things do I care? What are my dreams? What moves
me to-? Where do I go? Who want to be? What things give meaning to my life? How
would I feel the full?
Es .. how to make my home, my home. I do not start laying bricks everywhere.
Start seeing in my imagination, I start designing it: How do I want to be? Where
do I want to build it? The bricks, come much later ...
Vision is not a source of anxiety or fear to achieve, but rather a joy to know
that with each step, we make the path that leads to it, we feel its fragrance,
savoring its realization.
"Only when you leave
the side of safety, find your power in the new."
"Many people see things as
they are and ask why?
I see them as can be, and I wonder why not?"
"If you do not know
where you're going, any road will lead."
The most sublime act of love you can do is not an
act of service, but an act of contemplation, of vision. When you serve people
you do is help, support, comfort, ease your pain ... When you see them in their
inner beauty and goodness, what you do is to transform and create.
Think of each of the people who live and work, noting how each transforms your
eyes when you look this way. Seeing them, they are offering a gift far more
valuable than any act of service that you provide, because, in doing so, have
transformed the've "created" in your heart, and, assuming a certain degree of
contact between you and them, they too will experience really authentic
And now, offer yourself the same gift. If you've been able to do for others, it
will be very difficult. Follow the same procedure: do not judge or condemn any
of your defects or neurosis. If you have not tried the others, you should not be
judged. Investigates, studies and analyzes your weaknesses to achieve a better
understanding to take you to the love and forgiveness, and joyfully discover how
to be transformed by this strangely tender and sympathetic attitude that comes
in you to yourself.
Anthony de Mello
From Dead Poets Society
Do not let the
day end without having grown a little,
not have been happy, without increasing your dreams.
Do not be overcome by discouragement.
Do not let anyone take away the right to express yourself,
which is almost a must.
Do not give up the urge to make your life extraordinary.
Do not stop believing that the words
and the poems they can change the world.
Matter what our essence is intact.
We are beings full of passion.
Life is a desert oasis.
Us down, it hurts us, teaches us,
makes us protagonists of our own history.
Although the wind blowing against,
the powerful play goes on:
You can contribute a verse.
Never leave your dream,
because dreams are free men.
Do not fall into the worst errors: silence.
Most live in an awful silence.
Do not resign. Flee.
"I issue my screams over the roofs of this world"
says the poet.
Rate the beauty of simple things.
You can make beautiful poetry about little things,
but we can not row against ourselves.
It turns life into a living hell.
Enjoy the panic that provokes you
have life ahead.
Live it intensely, not mediocrity.
Think that you are the future
and faces the task with pride and without fear.
Learn from those who can teach you.
The experiences of those who preceded us
of our "Dead Poets Society"
help you walk through life.
Today's society is we
The "living poets."
Do not let life happen to you
without the living...
THE ECHO OF LIFE
A boy and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, the child fell,
hurt and cried:
To his surprise, he heard a voice repeating, somewhere in the mountains:
Curious, the boy shouted, "Who are you?"
Received response: "Who are you?"
Angry with his answer, yelled: "Coward!"
He received the answer: "Coward!"
He looked at his father and asked, "What?"
The father smiled and said, "My son, pay attention."
And then the father yelled at the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answered: "I admire you!"
Again the man shouted, "You are a champion!"
The voice answered: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but did not understand.
Then the father explained:
"People call this ECHO, but really is LIFE ...
We back everything you say or do ...
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions ...
If you want more love in the world, create more love around you ...
For more competitive in your group, exercise your competition ...
This relationship applies to all aspects of life ...
Life gives you back exactly what you have given."
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE ...
IS A REFLECTION OF YOURSELF ....
