Embrace your humanness, your limitations, your mistakes, your past.
Make peace with it all, so that you can see the perfection of it.
Blame and guilt hold you prisoner. That prison is not real; it’s a seemingly safe place, but it’s where new opportunities can never really find you.
New opportunities never cease emerging on your path. Life never stops giving you a chance to do better, to bring love where you are. There is always room for it.
Give yourself permission to heal. Release all resentment towards yourself.
Allow your self to reconnect with the whole again, so that you can be whole again.

if we could only see the right path to the brightest future, there would be no stories worth telling anymore; only an endless, blinding Now, reflected in billions of diamond like fractions of pure potentiality.

I don’t agree with wars because I don’t believe in sacrificing the lives of innocent people, or the lives of those who carry these battles for others. I think it’s time we look at the words “casualties of wars” and realize they don’t suit us as humans anymore. I like to think that men who would give their life to defend something are too precious to be lost, and I think it’s time to stop teaching little boys it is brave to die.
Not that they could ever really be prepared for what war is really like. Not that they should be subject to a situation where they have to kill another human being, and return a changed man forever if they do.
Yes, there was a time when freedom was gained and kept like this. I repeat: was. That time’s time has come. Whatever interest you have in war, economical, strategical, political, justifying your own dark side, know now this: light is entering this realm too.
I think we are in 2014 and war is overrated.
I think wars are still going on feeding on the remains of grandeur of some egos of those who needed crisp discipline to maintain going forward and keep safe what good people built, and on the contracts that still need to be carried out by those who seek financial interests in affected areas, the gun dealers and companies who provide their construction materials, logistics, intelligence and transportation, and on the frail egos of those whose maturity will never really happen, not as long as they need a gun to validate themselves by anyway.
I think we are beyond that as a species. I think it’s time we realize we can go on without mass killing.
I think we could do without blood shedding.
I think we know that we don’t need violence to prove things that can be proven in other ways too.
I know the inertia caused by such a massive type of event seems unstoppable and seems to find self-reinforcing reasoning to keep going, but it doesn’t have to be like that anymore.
I think fire guns are a way of making sure you don’t have much time before deciding to take another being’s life. Because it is a decision. It might look like anything else, but in the end, ending another life is a stepping stone in your everything: life, thinking, character, future, etc. Everything you do from that moment on will be influenced and/or determined by that. It’s the type of decision that you look back at and see as a mistake. It’s a short term desensitized manner of dealing with a problem. Just pull a trigger, from a distance, like you would press any button, like clicking a computer mouse or tapping a screen… and the problem goes away, right? You hardly realize that at the other end of the interaction, you’ve chosen to end a life. A life you have no right to end. It might seem like you do, but you never really do. Ending a life is never really power, just like winning a war is never really winning, unless it never starts.
Just because it seems easier to deal with outside demons than with the ones on the inside…
Capital punishment has one small flaw: you can’t punish someone that killed someone by killing them back, simply because they die knowing that they were right in their thinking in the first place. You don’t teach that killing another is bad, by killing the ones who did it, it kinda defeats the purpose.
At least in my opinion.

…we defined the Universe within the needs of limits, because we thought that we are limited.
…we needed the Universe to be as limited as we thought we were, so we built our future based on principles of separation and limits.
…we made it look how we needed it to look.
We no longer need for it to look a certain way, because we are starting to recognize ourselves as it.
There is a certain kind of power, and freedom at the same time, that comes from not trying to impose your will on life.
From not mistaking physical strength, or any other apparently finite structure’s existence for power.
From living in accordance with the laws of Flow.
From being in alignment with your Path.
From following the natural order of things.
From minding the Measure of things.
From knowing that the mind can’t solve the problems of the soul, on its own.
From understanding that everything, from light, to music, to your cells, is vibration, and that vibration is what brings and keeps things together, or sets them apart.
From understanding that pain arises from what we do not yet know or understand, and that awareness is the key to dissolve that pain.
From knowing you did not come out of nowhere and you are never by yourself.
From knowing that everyone else is another version of you, the same way you are a version of them.
You are the Universe experiencing itself, and so you hold as much power as the whole, as long as you deliberately align with it and vibrate at the frequency which makes new worlds possible, like the one you are in right now.

Nobody is as hard on you as you are.
That’s where the root of suffering lies.
Stop pushing yourself like that. There are no grades, no mean teachers behind you.
You don’t own all the problems of the world. Others were born on the same day as you were too.
Allow yourself to accept yourself.
Don’t wait for the end of the week to remember your freedom. Don’t wait for holidays to do what you like most. Balance between working time and playing time means they are both equally important. Work prizes should not be associated with pain and struggle. Play prizes bring more joy and your soul knows why. Honor the time you need to adjust to things. You are not a robot, you can’t endlessly push buttons.
You don’t have to worry about everything today, leave some for tomorrow too.
Give yourself the time to understand whatever you need to understand.
If you knew how wonderful you are, by just being you, at least two hundred self-help businesses would go out of business. Imagine that power.
Stop keeping your self in a prison of guilt, blame, shame. Forget all the reasons you ever felt those feelings for. Get a break. Get a drink. Breathe. Breathe long.
Be silent. Watch a water flow. Dream. Become friends with yourself again. Stay in the sun a little longer. Let yourself be carried by a thing: a feeling, an embrace, a wave, a breeze.
Don’t misuse your agenda and notebook. They are here to remind you of things, so that you don’t have to keep that information active in your mind all at once. They were not invented to imprison you in a ceaseless race, on a perpetuum of hundreds of tasks.
Repeat after me: “No”.
Make coffee. Make tea. Put a song on and just lay back for 5 minutes. Don’t look at your phone. Don’t check your emails. Don’t tweet about how great this song is. If the phone rings, let it ring. You can call back after you’re done with your moment. You don’t owe anything to anybody.
Take this moment for yourself. Take it now. Because no one else will for you.
Life is not meant to be dictated by others, by fear, or by pain.
Give yourself permission to choose only the easy things today.
Make memories. Feel happiness. Don’t restrict, expand the moments, and expand yourself with them.
Leave some room for life to grow branches.
Leave some questions unanswered.

There is a certain pace at which life makes sense just the way it is. A pace at which you can actually feel the moments.
A pace at which your cells know their true path.
A pace at which you understand why some things exist and others don’t, and why you are among the first.
A pace at which you know how and why things happen.
A pace at which you grasp the wordless definition of time, a definition given by your soul, and not by man-made mechanisms.
A pace at which your body is grateful.
A pace at which you can let go, and keep only what resembles your sacred making.
A pace at which the skin of an orange slice doesn’t break, when parted from its sisters, at which your gaze heals another human being, a pace at which all life around you acknowledges you with every step you take, a pace at which you can actually share your experience.
At which you observe the traces of life on a glass window and the traces of what was, on your heart.
At which you give no one proof of being worthy, because everyone already knows it.
At which your atoms remember when they were immaterial silence and light.

Be happy where you are now, with what you have.
This was a day with a spring scent. Information from the weekend still settling down in my brain. Didn’t get to make pancakes. But tomorrow is another day. Saw a few clips on OBE, got my Abraham fix and managed to make a short trip in the sun in the afternoon. I’m still trying to figure out who had this idea of us humans getting inside these opaque boxes for most of our day, in which little sunshine, little fresh air gets in… We miss the rhythms of the nature, in our eyes, and ears, and pores… but we don’t know it yet. OK, some of us do, but most still don’t unfortunately… Ate low in protein at breakfast and lunch, and by the time I got back home had extreme fantasies with some… you know… bacon. Then got them fulfilled. Then had my second quarter of glass of wine this year and saw a short movie. And just like that, my day is over. Not my day, but my fuel. This is what 32 feels like. How am I supposed to handle a boyfriend or a pet? My phone is kinda kinky. He says “touch to update google hangouts” and stuff… I don’t use more than half that crap. I’m afraid to “touch”. Lol. It might update things I didn’t even know existed before :)))) This is how you know you’re getting old. Faster than how people got old 30 years ago. So anyway, I started wishing for a lot of things, you know, that feeling you have when the day is almost over and you didn’t do much. At least I didn’t drop my bag in the mud, like I did on Friday. No more aftermath washing. And even though your body can’t take it, you still send the commands. That’s what got me into a two months in bed health issue this winter. So, yeah, adjustments time! And after your brain realizes it is not in shape for some proactive awesome proof of human intelligent capacity – I mean even that was kinda hard to write – it goes: “hey, how about a movie? It’s still some type of cultural act, or at least it could be, 10 years from now.” So I said to myself I can’t do this shit all the time. This projecting of what could have been is highly toxic and negative spiral inducing. So how about just being extremely happy with things exactly the way they are? After all not one moment has ever contained the perfect ingredients or perfect outcome. There are always seeds of improvement in anything that exists in our reality, and even the realities to which we measure our own. I think when that impeccable moment comes, all life will cease to exist. So maybe it was the wine, maybe all the spiritual practices I’ve been endeavoring in – including some chakra aligning – although I’m sure it was both, but I just decided to relax, let the usual feeling pass through me instead of resisting it, and got really grateful for all the wonderfully crappy and unbearably, food-porn-like-good things in my life. And I think I heard my brain say thank you. :)) Yes, our efforts should settle by the time the sun checks in on the other side of the planet. But we never seem to get that. Sometimes I have the feeling we race computers. What a sad specie we are.
But getting back to my initial thought stream… how can we be happy with more, tomorrow, if we don’t know how to be happy with what we have today? The Now contains everything we need. Every moment is another teacher of that. Ah! The taste of non-self-persecution!
This is probably one of my most journal-like posts since I started the blog. I wonder how will all this sound in the morning… I should make tea.
Yeah, this was supposed to be a short note. Better luck next time I guess.
I don’t wanna worry about the road or the destination anymore, or if and how I’m gonna get there. I just wanna take this moment in, drifting away into the vastness, on the sound of a electronic soft jazz tune, with my eyes closed and my heart open.

There are days when the dust of drying old structures and the echos of words said to conquer, and not to love, still settle over my path; and although the lighthouse in my heart still shines on it, I find it harder to figure out where my next step will be. And sometimes the slippery fear patterns try to seduce me on their negative spiral, or at least leave their trace on my soul.
And then there are days when my Ego sees the evidence of what is truly worthy and remembers that the belief in separation is pointless. In those days I step into the Knowing contained in my Dream. It is then when everything makes sense, all at once, in the most overlooked of layers of reality.
Contemplating the warmth of the blood in my veins against the cold rain outside.
The way my watercolor set looks through the empty water jar.
This moment unfolding into the future and the past.

What is my dark side? Pain, anger, insecurity. I stood face to face with all of them. I still do some days. But I know more now. I can choose now.
We see bits of darkness all around us, in our daily lives. Sometimes they are there when we look in the mirror. But when we decide to completely inhabit our body and our life, even the darkness starts to make sense.
We are sitting at the dawn of a new era. We are no longer powerless. The hard work has just begun. Enjoy the sunrise.
