En cierta ocasión durante un seminario para matrimonios, le preguntaron a un Hombre:
-'¿Te hace feliz tu esposa?', ... ¿Verdaderamente te hace feliz?

En ese momento la esposa levantó ligeramente el cuello en señal de seguridad, sabía que su esposo diría que sí, pues el jamás se había quejado durante su matrimonio.
Sin embargo el esposo respondió con un rotundo
- 'No..., no me hace feliz'
Y ante el asombro de la mujer... continuó:

- 'No me hace feliz ... ¡Yo soy feliz! ...

El que yo sea feliz o no, eso no depende de ella, sino de mí.
Yo soy la única persona, de quien depende, mi felicidad.
Yo determino ser feliz en cada situación y en cada momento de mi vida, pues si mi felicidad dependiera ...de alguna persona, cosa... o circunstancia... sobre la faz de esta tierra,

yo estaría en serios problemas.

Todo lo que existe en esta vida, cambia continuamente...,
el ser humano, las riquezas, mi cuerpo, el clima, los placeres, etc. Y así podría decir una lista interminable.

A través de toda mi vida, he aprendido algo;

decido ser feliz y lo demás lo llamo...

'experiencias' ,








Hay gente que dice:

- No puedo ser feliz ... porque estoy enfermo, porque no tengo dinero, porque hace mucho calor, porque alguien me insultó, porque alguien ha dejado de amarme, porque alguien no me valoró.

Pero ...lo que no sabes es que ...PUEDES SER FELIZ...
aunque... estés enfermo,

aunque... haga calor,

aunque... no tengas dinero,
aunque... estés triste,
aunque ...alguien te haya insultado,

aunque ...alguien no te amó ,

o no te haya valorado .

La vida es como andar en bicicleta,...

te caes, solo si dejas de pedalear.

Five Things

''Our primary relationship in life is with ourselves.
No one else goes through every experience in life with us.

We are our one permanent companion, yet we are often our worst critic.

To remind ourselves of our magnificence, we can do this exercise: “Five Things I Like About Myself.”

Begin by writing down at least five things that you like about yourself. This is not the time to be modest. If you are having trouble coming up with a total of five items, you know that this exercise can really benefit you.

Be sure to include more than your physical attributes on your list, since our bodies are only part of who we are. If you are still struggling with what to include on your list, think of what you like about your favorite people, because these traits are probably qualities that you possess too.
Another way to complete your list is to think of five things you don’t like about yourself and find something about these traits that you can like.

Continue this process for a week, thinking of five new things you like about yourself everyday. At the end of the week, read the list aloud to yourself while standing in front of a mirror.

Instead of looking for flaws to fix, allow the mirror to reflect your magnificence.

You may feel silly about standing in front of a mirror and reading aloud a list of your admirable attributes, but it might just bring a smile to your face and change the way you see yourself.

Remember, it is when you feel the most resistant that this exercise can benefit you the most

Because we are constantly looking at the world, instead of looking at ourselves, we don’t often see what’s magnificent about ourselves that others do

When we take the time to experience ourselves the way we would experience someone we love and admire, we become our best companion and supporter on life’s journey. ''

A Living Dwelling

''The homes we occupy are seldom ideal. A space that satisfies our basic needs may nonetheless leave us wanting where location, décor, or style are concerned.
Yet every home has the potential to be beautiful.
When we fill our homes with love, we transcend worldly factors such as market value and design.
Our conscious, loving intentions can literally transform the spaces in which we live, dispelling any lingering unharmonious energy and replacing it with an ethereal beauty that is felt rather than seen.

Our homes become spiritual dwellings that feel soulful and alive.

Regardless of their outward appearances, they radiate love, making all who enter, including ourselves, feel instantly welcome.
Turning a space into the beautiful outward expression of your inner warmth is as easy as projecting love into it.

When your intentions are sincere, you can infuse the walls of your home with your energy, your emotional sensitivity, and your generosity of spirit, turning it into a haven of affection, joy, laughter, and togetherness.

It is up to you, whether you want your personal spaces to be peaceful and quiet or lively and inspiring.

Begin by cultivating awareness within yourself.

This will allow you to see your home as an integral part of your existence rather than somewhere you simply return to at the end of each day.

Consider how you relate to each element of your space, and remind yourself that every room in your home can serve a purpose in your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Finally, lovingly thank each room for providing for your needs.

As you become more mindful of the manner in which your home contributes to your well-being, you will discover that, more and more, you want to love and be loved by it.

Appearance and other superficial qualities can be deceiving.

An aesthetically beautiful home can prove unwelcoming. And a home that seems mundane in every characteristic can be as comforting and cozy as a beloved relative or friend.

When you nurture and care for your home as if it were a loved one, it will absorb your tender intentions and project a love so touching you will soon come to feel a great affection for it. ''

life's scales

''Like pieces of a puzzle, the many different aspects of your being come together to form the person that you are.

You work and play, rest and expend energy, commune with your body and soul, exalt in joy, and feel sorrow.

Balance is the state that you achieve when all of the aspects of your life and self are in harmony.

Your life force flows in a state of equilibrium because nothing feels out of sync.

While balance is necessary to have a satisfying, energetic, and joyful life, only you can determine what balance means to you.
Achieving balance requires that you assess what is important to you.

The many demands of modern life can push us to make choices that can put us off balance and have a detrimental effect on our habits, relationships, health, and career.

In creating a balanced lifestyle, you must ascertain how much time and energy you are willing to devote to the different areas of your life.

To do so, imagine that your life is a house made up of many rooms. Draw this house, give each part of your life its own room, and size each room according to the amount of importance you assign to that aspect of your life. You can include family, solitude, activities that benefit others, healthy eating, indulgences, exercise and working on self.
You may discover that certain elements of your life take up an inordinate amount of time, energy, or effort and leave you with few resources to nurture the other aspects of your life. You may want to spend less time on these activities and more on the ones that  fulfill you.
A balanced lifestyle is simply a state of being in which one has time and energy for obligations and pleasures, as well as time to live well and in a gratifying way.

With its many nuances, balance can be a difficult concept to integrate into your life.

Living a balanced existence, however, can help you attain a greater sense of happiness, health, and fulfillment.''

Big Steps On Life's Path

''Life is a journey comprised of many steps on our personal path that takes us down a winding road of constant evolution.

And each day, we are provided with a myriad of opportunities that can allow us to transform into our next best selves.

One moment we are presented with an opportunity to react differently when yet another someone in our life rubs us the wrong way; on another day we may find ourselves wanting to walk away from a particular circumstance but are not sure if we can.

Eventually, we may find ourselves stuck in a rut that we can never seem to get out of.

We may even make the same choices over and over again because we don’t know how to choose otherwise.

Rather than moving us forward, our personal paths may take us in a seemingly never-ending circle where our actions and choices lead us nowhere but to where we’ve already been.

It is during these moments that awareness can be the first step to change.

Awareness is when we are able to realize what we are doing.

We observe ourselves, noticing our reactions, actions, and choices as if we were a detached viewer.

Awareness is the first step to change because we can’t make a change unless we are aware that one needs to be made in the first place.

We can then begin understanding why we are doing what we are doing.

Afterward, it becomes difficult not to change because we are no longer asleep to the truth behind our behaviors.

We also begin to realize that, just as much as we are the root source behind the causes for our behaviors, we are also the originator for any changes that we want to happen.

There is a freedom that comes with awareness.

Rather than thinking that we are stuck in a repetitive cycle where there is no escape, we begin to see that we very much play a hand in creating our lives.

Whether we are aware of them or not, our behaviors and choices are always ours to make.

Our past and our present no longer have to dictate our future when we choose to be aware.

We are then free to move beyond our old limits, make new choices, and take new actions.

With awareness, our paths can’t help but wind us forward in our lives while paving the way for new experiences and new ways of being.

It is through awareness that we can continue to consciously evolve. ''

avoiding the center

''It’s funny to imagine our lives as something we spend a lot of time avoiding, because it seems like that would be impossible to do.

Our lives consist of everything we engage in, from showering to sleeping, but also a lot of busy work that distracts us and keeps us from looking at our lives.

Experiencing our life from the inside means taking time each day to simply be alone and quiet in the presence of our soul.

Many of us are so out of practice that it’s almost unnerving to have a moment to ourselves.

As a result, we may have stopped trying to carve out that time to take a seat at the center of our lives.

One of the reasons it can be uncomfortable to sit with ourselves is because when we do, we tend to open ourselves to an inner voice, which might question the way we’re living or some of the choices we’re making.

Sometimes the voice reminds us of our secret, inner yearnings, dreams we thought we had forgotten.

When we already feel overwhelmed by our busy schedules, the idea of hearing this voice can be exhausting.

However, its reflections are the chords that connect us to our authentic selves, and they are the very things that make our lives worth living.

When we continually avoid connecting with our life, we risk losing out on the very purpose of our existence.

To begin the process of being more present and less absent in your life, you might want to set aside just a few minutes each day to simply sit with yourself.

This doesn't mean watching a movie or reading a book, but taking time each day for self-examination to avoid the avoidance, to be with yourself in an open way.

After a while, you may start to enjoy this part of the day so much that you make less busy work for yourself, so that you can spend more time at the center of your own life, rather than hovering like a planet around the sun.''

Spiritualizing the Planet

''We are one with the cosmos whether we realize it or not.

Realizing it, though, quickens our spiritual energy and allows us access to higher realms.

In those higher realms lies the awareness that we are more than just finite physical beings living one life in one place at one point in time.

Connecting with this awareness is to awaken to the truth and take a step forward, and upward, on our soul’s journey.

This upward movement is known as ascension because the more we remember who we are and embody that truth, the higher our energy vibrates; we ascend up the scale from the gross physical plane to the subtle spiritual plane.
As we ascend, we gain consciousness of the more subtle aspects of our being, with the ultimate outcome being a complete identification with the light body, an experience of unification with the cosmos.

As you look around you, you will see that many people are not even interested in these ideas.

Others are open and paying attention. Still others have devoted their lives to deepening their understanding of the truth.

All these people are on the path of ascension, but they will ascend at different rates.

Each soul chooses its own path.

The more devoted a person is to remembering and being guided by spirit, the more quickly the soul will ascend.

These people are at the forefront of an important process of raising the energetic vibration of the whole planet.

The earth, made of the same energy we are, is undergoing this shift along with us.

This evolutionary process, while seemingly chaotic at times, is as natural as the process that unfolds a flower from a seed and we are all part of it.
It shouldn’t be forgotten that the earth too is on her own ascension path as she is sentient.

The best way to support this process in yourself and in the world is simply to relax and be open to its unfolding.

Listen to your inner guidance, and let it guide you to the path that brings your heart the most joy.

renascer, reborn


Tu estás a renascer. Em todos os sentidos,
em todas as formas, nas mais pequenas
acções quotidianas, estás a nascer outra vez
para uma nova vida. Cada vez estás mais
perto de mim. Cada vez vibras mais alto, mais
puro, mais subtil. Cada vez mais, alcanças a
dimensão do céu onde as fadas podem voar.

Este é o tempo do renascimento. É o tempo
dos homens entenderem a missão.
Entenderem que a verdadeira missão, a
única missão possível para o ser humano
dentro da humanidade, é conseguir ser
único, inconfundível e inviolável. É
conseguir destacar-se de mais de sete
mil milhões de pessoas.

Ser autêntico.
Ser orgânico.
Ser especial

'hollow bone'

'But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn't welcome
He just doesn't have the freedom
To refuse
He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he's really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube'

Wherever you go, wherever you do,
try to leave GOOD SEEDS.

Take care !

this is it.

Sem música, sem palavras dos outros, sem imagens de ninguém. sem explicações.
Só assim. 

Este caminho acabou por aqui, da minha parte, é claro.  

Obrigada a quem me visitou e procurou o que aqui coloquei. 

Estão por vossa conta, estou por minha conta :)

E lembrem-se, sempre que algo termina, abre-se espaço e algo começa.

Que seja bom.

again and again

Tell me again when I've been to the river
And I've taken the edge off my thirst
Tell me again when we're alone and I'm listening
Listening so hard that it hurts
Tell me again when I'm clean and sober
Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
Tell me again, tell me over and over
Tell me that you want me then
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

Tell me again when the victims are singing
And the laws of remorse are restored
Tell me again that you know what I'm thinking
But vengeance belongs to the Lord.
Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
Tell me again, tell me over and over,
Tell me that you love me then
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen
Tell me again when the day has been ransomed
And the night has no right to begin
Try me again when the angels are panting
And scratching at the door to come in.
Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
Tell me again, tell me over and over
Tell me again that you need me then
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

Tell me again when the filth of the butcher
Is washed in the blood of the lamb
Tell me again when the rest of the culture
Has passed through the eye of the cam
Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
Tell me again, tell me over and over
Tell me that you love me then
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

old new ideas

I love to speak with Leonard
He's a sportsman and a shepherd
He's a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn't welcome
He just doesn't have the freedom
To refuse

He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he's really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it's better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore

He wants to write a love song
An anthem of forgiving
A manual for living with defeat

A cry above the suffering
A sacrifice recovering
But that isn't what I need him
To complete

I want him to be certain
That he doesn't have a burden
That he doesn't need a vision
That he only has permission
To do my instant bidding
Which is to say what I have told him
To repeat

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it's better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without this costume
That I wore

observing evolution


'Watching a loved one or a peer traverse a path littered with stumbling blocks can be immensely painful.

We instinctively want to guide them toward a safer track and share with them the wisdom we have acquired through experience.

Yet all human beings have the right to carve their own paths without being unduly influenced by outside interference.

To deny them that right is to deny them enlightenment, as true insight cannot be conveyed in lectures.

Rather, each individual must earn independence and illumination by making decisions and reflecting upon the consequences of each choice.

In allowing others to walk their paths freely, you honor their right to express their humanity in whatever way they see fit.

Though you may not agree with or identify with their choices, understand that each person must learn in their own way and at their own pace.

The events and circumstances that shape our lives are unique because each of us is unique.

What touches one person deeply may do nothing more than irritate or confound another.

Therefore, each of us is drawn to different paths—the paths that will have the most profound effects on our personal evolution.

If you feel compelled to intervene when watching another human being make their way slowly and painfully down a difficult path, try to empathize with their need to grow autonomous and make their own way in the world.

Should this person ask for your aid, give it freely.

You can even tell them about your path or offer advice in a conscious loving way.

Otherwise, give them the space they need to make their own mistakes, to enjoy the fruits of their labors, to revel in their triumphs, and to discover their own truths. The temptation to direct the paths of others is a creature of many origins.

Overactive egos can convince us that ours is the one true path or awaken a craving for control within us.

But each person is entitled to seek out their path leading from the darkness into the light.

When we celebrate those paths and encourage the people navigating them, we not only enjoy the privilege of watching others grow—we also reinforce our dedication to diversity, independence, and individuality. ''
