Camino Interno Part 3

Camino Interno

(parte 3)

There exists no map or a GPS that can tell us which way to go. Nothing and no one can tell you what to do with you experience, only you can decide on the direction of your life. You have to out-do your struggles and fight your own battles, after all it is YOUR journey. We all have to make our own life-changing decisions and we have to face the great challenge of life ourselves. We will make mistakes and wrong decisions, it’s part of the human experience, but we must live with them, and ALWAYS learn from them. Fools are those who allow their mistakes to continually repeat themselves over and over again. If we don’t learn from out lessons we keep having them, in-prisoning ourselves in a vicious cycle until we learn our lesson and we can grow and upgrade to next level along our path. If you made mistakes and headed down the wrong path, remember that it is never too late to change the direction of your life and become who you want to be. If you find that you’re not proud of the person you have become and the life you are living then change the course of your life. While you exist you are allowed to start over as many times as you want. Moving forward along your path you will face new and different obstacles and it is you who must face them. You have to struggle and wrestle with them until you finally overcome them.

All I can give you as a word of advice is to listen to the whispers of your heart and trust your instinct, your own inner voice. No matter how faint and dim, our inner-voice is always there, we just have to quiet down the noise of the mind and pay attention to it. When the mind is quiet you can hear your inner thoughts, your conscience, which guides us faithfully. We have inside us the faith that all gods provide.

God lives within us all. I’m sorry to break it to you, but god is not overlooking life from a castle in the clouds. God is here on earth and he lives within us all. This makes us all special and unique beings, we have inside us all the marvels and wonders of the universe. We have to accept our own magnificence and make our lives reflect this primordial truth. The light lies within each and every one of us all we have to do is find it, cherish it, and share it, reflecting light unto others.

Admire the greatness in others and know that you too can be great. You have a powerful thinking brain capable of anything, limited only by the power of your imagination. You have the resilient spirit of a warrior inside you. Be strong, be smart, and don’t be afraid. We might not have complete and total control over our lives, shit happens, i’m not ignoring that. There are things that will happen to us which are out of our control, but it is within us to chose how we react to every situation that life throws at us. In this way, we do have some say in the happenings of our lives. We have to control what we can and not allow the of immensity of life to overwhelm us. No task is beyond us. Like the Yakut teaching,

“When the blizzard lashes the taiga, only a fool tries to face it and struggle with its power. But only a fool abandons himself to it and lets it blow him where it will. The wise man leans against it and lets it push him slowly, slowly, so he can pick his path and find his way to safety.”

We have to adapt this saying to our lives and slowly and consciously direct our lives through this crazy freak storm we call life. Listen to yourself, connect with you conscience and look for the wisdom to make the right decisions. Whatever decision you make, wherever you go, make sure you go with all of your heart. Be grateful for each day, put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. Trust Your Instincts and Follow Your Heart, whatever that means to you. Like always, keep growing, in the Light Direction.

Solo hay un Camino y es Interno

El Camino Interno

(part 1)

“La cosa mas difícil de la vida es saber que puentes quemar y cuales cruzar”

Decisions are hard in life

It’s hard to choose which path to take but it’s part of the human experience. We must make decisions which will ripple into the future and shape our destinies. We are co-creators of our lives, the architects of our own futures and this realization entails us with great responsibility. We have the power to create our lives but it’s not easy to decide on its direction. How do we know which way is right? Do we make the big move to a new place? Do we take the job? Do we change careers? Do we risk? Do we rise or do we fall? It’s impossible to know today, but with time, there are no secrets and everything will be known. Your life is being written as you live it and nothing can be hidden, least of all from yourself. There will come a day when your life will be measured out in front of you in order to see how it all the turned out. And in your judgment day it doesn’t matter wether you face god, aliens, or a big giant mirror which reflects back the person who you truly are, for it will be you who will judge your decisions and your actions. When your life comes to a close you will see it wholly, and in its totality you will be able to see which decisions were right and which were wrong.

But what do I know? Some think that this journey is already pre-written and no matter what, you will end up where you are going. Maybe there is no such thing as a wrong or right decision, but rather, just the things we do, in order to create the situations which we need to continue on our evolutionary journey. Evolution is growth and life must evolve for it is it’s purpose to do so. We have to continue on our path towards happiness and continue to grow and better ourselves, mentally, physically(while we can), emotionally and spiritually. It’s said that what’s meant to be will find its way, but even if everything is pre-destined, how you maneuver through life and dance to its rhythms makes all the difference. You can allow the river of life to push you towards your destination or you can grab the sails, take the wheel and enjoy one hell of ride. You can flow with the waters, take life by the horns live, feeling fully awake and alive. How we live and react in our lives is up to us. It is all we have.


 (Español parte 1)

Es difícil elegir el rumbo de nuestras vidas pero es parte de la experiencia humana. Tenemos que tomar decisiones hoy cuyas consecuencias se proyectaran hacia el futuro formando nuestras vidas y ayudando a cumplir nuestros destinos. Somos los arquitectos de nuestros futuros, los co-creadores de nuestras vidas y esta realización implica una responsabilidad enorme. Tenemos el poder para crear nuestras vidas pero no es fácil decidir la dirección que debemos tomar. Como saber cual camino es el correcto? Tomamos el trabajo nuevo o seguimos en el mismo? Nos mudamos a un lugar nuevo? Cambiamos de carrera? Arrancamos algo diferente? Nos arriesgamos? Cual camino nos ayudara a avanzar y cual nos conduce al fracaso? Es imposible saberlo hoy pero en el tiempo no hay secretos y todo se sabrá. Tu vida esta siendo escrita mientras se vive y nada se puede esconder, mucho menos de ti mismo. Va a llegar el día en que tu vida va a ser medida frente a ti para poder ver como salieron las cosas. No tiene mucha importancia si te enfrentas con dios, con Allah, con Aliens o con un espejo gigante que te refleja quien eres de verdad. Somos nosotros quienes vamos a juzgar las acciones y las decisiones que tomamos. Cuando tu vida llegue a su cierre y quede entera y completa, en su totalidad podremos ver cuales decisiones fueron buenas y cuales malas.

Pero, yo que se? Tal vez nuestro viaje este predeterminado y no importa lo que pase, siempre vamos a llegar a donde tenemos que llegar. Tal ves no existen las decisiones buenas y las malas, si no simplemente lo que hacemos para crear las situaciones que necesitamos para continuar en nuestro viaje evolutivo. La evolución es crecer y la vida debe evolucionar ya que es este su propósito. Tenemos que seguir continuamente por nuestro camino de la felicidad, continuamente creciendo y mejorando, mentalmente, físicamente (mientras podemos), emocionalmente y espiritualmente. Si todo esta predestinado, como maniobramos a través de nuestra vida y bailamos sus ritmos hace toda la diferencia. Podemos hacer la plancha y dejar que el río de la vida nos arrastre hacia nuestro destino, o agarramos la manija de nuestras vidas, las velas de nuestros barcos y disfrutamos de nuestro pilotaje. Se puede fluir a través de las aguas, tomando la vida por los cuernos, sintiéndonos vivos y completamente despiertos. Como vivimos y reaccionamos en la vida es nuestra decisión y es es todo lo que tenemos.

Architects of our own fortunes

Wise Words

“Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail.”

— Jackson Brown Jr.

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

-Uruguayan President Jose Mujica

-Speaking in-front of the General Assembly at the United Nations

__________________________________________________________________________________________

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.

-Presidente Uruguayo Jose Mujica

-Discurso frente a la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas

 

Man is always the master, even in his weakest and most abandoned state; but in his weakness and degradation he is the foolish master who misgoverns his ‘household’. When he begins to reflect upon his condition, and to search diligently for the law upon which his being is established, he then becomes the wise master, directing his energies with intelligence. Such is the conscious master, and man can only thus become by discovering within himself the laws of thought; which discovery is totally a matter of application, self analysis, and experience.

-James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“It is better to Light a candle than to curse the Dark”
