Every day now we are pushed by our society to have, to possess, making us believe that this is the way to happiness. We take refuge in the having mode believing it is a security but in reality we are only deeply insecure. We wear a mask and depend on what we possess such as money, physical appearance, power, possessions, in other words on something that is outside of us

Every day now we are driven by our society to have, to possess, making us believe that this is the way to happiness. We take refuge in the having mode believing it is a security but in reality we are only deeply insecure. We wear a mask and depend on what we possess such as money, physical appearance, power, possessions, in other words on something that is outside of us.



We hide behind these impassable walls and feel discontent if we don't achieve our ambitions. Every time we fail we unfortunately make the mistake of question ourselves as human beings, thus gradually losing our self-esteem.

But does it really make sense to walk this arid path of emotions and feelings? Does it make sense to stay anchored to these neurotic habits? We should realize that all of this accumulate ed to appear just leaves a sense of emptiness in the soul, that it is a failure to lead our life in this way. Our soul only wants to escape the conventions of the collectivity and finally exist.

A life centered on being it is the one that should be aspired to. That life in which we really discover ourselves, we no longer invent excuses of any kind and take responsibility for living the existence we have always dreamed of.

We should embark on this new journey and shift the focus within us where real life reigns, starting to leave the past behind and returning to being great as only children can do: rejoice in a smile received from a stranger, to move us to see two elderly people walking hand in hand, a have fun playing with our children, to make love with those we love.

Appreciate the simple but immense things in life. It depends on us and how much we want to risk. It depends on how happy we really want to be.

Where there is shadow there must be light (Haruki Murakami)

Our consciousness and awareness will do the rest to yearn for a meaningful life. Man is what he believes in and the voice within us is just waiting to be heard and loved. He loves yourself, believe in yourself and in change.


This is the secret to being and to making the present moment a joy. By donating love we will use our energy towards good. It is only by freeing ourselves from materialism, from the conditioning of the mind, from a life based on having that we could achieve peace. The time has come to fulfill ourselves as human beings.
