Develop your awareness...

what you're unaware of,
will inevitably be the place in your life where you're stuck.
psychologist call it selective awareness or denial
think about those tough issues
put your mind to work
if there's something it's not ok,
come on, look at it, think about it,
write about, watch your mind...
you can change.
unconsciously we attract people and situations in our life we don't want.
our mental representations lead us towards a direction
what we believe is what we see
if you think that there's no one interesting outside,
you won't see the interesting people around you...

that is why:
"You must be the change you want to see in the world"
- Mahatma Gandhi

To be born...

Once a little kid looked into our world and he saw a men holding a gun and shooting another men. Then he saw a multitude of starving children, scavenging for food. He felt really sad, but still curious, he continued to look, and he saw an enormous boat, spilling a viscous black substance that was killing slowly and painfully many birds and fishes. He couldn't believe what he was witnessing. He sat down and thought about all those sad realities. What if he could paint that sea again with a bright blue, and clean all the birds and fishes? He wondered if he could prepare a thousand meals and feed the little children he saw with great hunger. He wondered if he could stop the metal bullet, and instead transform it in colorful ribbons. Oh what a difference he could make... and with that thought in his heart, he decided to be born.

Storytelling... a must learn

To be honest, I know so little about dreaming...
so little about flying....
so little...

One of these days, I hope to learn how to tell a story
to really feel the sequence of events...
to feel the momentum
to see it building up,
feeling it grow,
and... wowowowoww!!!! thrilling action...

Start from a simple beginning, nothing too fancy,
an ordinary fact, start building some tension by adding up little facts,
from this thing to this thing, which lead me to the next,
then I did this, then I though, and I decided,
building the momentum, raising questions,
creating moments of reflection
paying attention to details...

ha... storytelling, an art
that can really turn your life around.
By the end, isn't all basically depending on how you tell your story?

Pulsão da vida

Faz dos homens (e das mulheres nem se fala!) guerreiros cegos esfomeados, banhados em cólera e alimentados pelo mais doce dos néctares... coloca-nos muito perto da insanidade, a não ser que o final seja feliz.
