This is my Symphony

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.”

~William Ellery Channing




It is possible to uproot all indigence (poverty)  from the planet. It’s possible to create stability and it will be possible for future generations, if they are able to reason as a species not only us an individual, to take life to the galaxy and continue with that conquering dream that us human beings carry in our genes.  

But for all these dreams to be possible, we need to govern ourselves or we will succumb (perish), because we are not able to measure up with the civilization that we have developed with happenings. This is our dilemma. Let’s not entertain ourselves only mending consequences, let’s think about the underlying causes, in this civilization of waste, in this civilization of use and throw away, what we are throwing away is time of human life wasted, squandering over unnecessary issues.

Think that human life is a miracle, that we are alive because of a miracle and nothing is worth more than life. And our biological duty is above all to respect life and to encourage it, to create it, to procreate it and understand that the species is our “us”. Thank You

Es posible arrancar de cuajo toda la indigencia del planeta. Es posible crear estabilidad y será posible a generaciones venideras si logran empezar a razonar como especie, no solo como individuo, llevar la vida a la galaxia y seguir con ese sueño conquistador que llevamos en nuestra genética los seres humanos.

Pero para que todos esos sueños sean posibles, necesitamos gobernarnos a nosotros mismos o sucumbiremos, o sucumbiremos, porque no somos capaces de estar a la altura de la civilización que en los hechos fuimos desarrollando. Este es nuestro dilema. No nos entretengamos solo remendando consecuencias, pensemos en las causas de fondo, en la civilización del despilfarro, en la civilización del use y tire, que lo que está tirando es tiempo de vida humana malgastado, derrochando cuestiones inútiles.

Piensen que la vida humana es un milagro, que estamos vivos por milagro y nada vale más que la vida. Y que nuestro deber biológico es por encima de todas las cosas respetar a la vida e impulsarla, crearla, procrearla y entender que la especie es nuestro nosotros. Gracias.
