Mi jornada hacia la vida, día 1070, Carta de una nación olvidada

Les traigo un pequeño mensaje que se recitó este fin de semana en alguna ceremonia de algún lugar de México (Por cierto, se nos aclaró que la pronunciación no es Mé-ji-co sino Mé-shi-co por Mexica, en honor a nuestra tierra guerrera)

"La vida puede ser muy difícil cuando la haces girar alrededor de una sola substancia, ésta puede ser una religión, puede ser el fuego, puede ser algo que compres o que te guste, pero al final y por alguna extraña razón todo es más fácil cuando necesitas menos.

La pobreza es un mal social que debe y que puede terminar, cuando los acuerdos entre las naciones y las personas no se ven interferidos por el EGO; si aprendemos a dar el dinero con una sonrisa antes que obligados con el sentimiento de una deuda (pues es también justo que cada uno reciba el pago por el valor de su trabajo), esto podrá terminar todos los conflictos mundiales.

La pobreza no es una elección para la gran mayoría (pues hay personas quienes deciden conscientemente realizar un voto de pobreza) y efectivamente creemos que cada quien decide como vivir su vida, pero ésta debe ser ante todo una elección y no la consecuencia de conflictos ajenos a las personas que se ven obligados a vivir en esas condiciones.

La humanidad enfrentará muchos desafíos en el futuro, como desastres naturales o medio ambientales, conflictos sociales, económicos, políticos y de todo tipo, pero debemos tener presente que siempre seremos tan fuertes como el eslabón mas débil y en tanto exista uno solo que sea apartado por nuestro egoísmo, nuestra avaricia, nuestra codicia, nuestra competencia con el otro por cuestiones personales irresolutas, la humanidad siempre estará en riesgo."

Atentamente: Alguna nación olvidada



Nuestra sagrada energía ya tuvo a bien ocultarse,
nuestro venerable sol ya dignamente desapareció su rostro,
y en total obscuridad se dignó dejarnos.

Ciertamente sabemos (que) otra vez se dignará volver,
que otra vez tendrá a bien salir
y nuevamente vendrá dignamente a alumbrarnos.

En tanto que allá entre los muertos tenga a bien permanecer .
Muy rápido reunámonos,
Congreguémonos
y en medio de nuestro corazón escondamos
todo el nuestro corazón se honra amando
y sabemos nuestra riqueza
en nosotros como gran esmeralda.

Hagamos desaparecer los nuestros lugares sagrados,
los nuestros Calmécac los nuestros juegos de pelota,
los nuestros Telpochcalli, las nuestras casas de canto; que solos se queden los nuestros caminos
y nuestros hogares que nos preserven.

Hasta cuando se digne salir el nuevo nuestro sol,
los venerados padres y las veneradas madres
que nunca se olviden de
decirles a los sus jóvenes
y que les enseñen (a) sus hijos
mientras se dignen vivir,
precisamente cuán buena ha sido
hasta ahora nuestra amada Anáhuac
donde nos cuidan nuestros venerados difuntos,
su voluntad y sus deseo,
y solo también por causa de nuestro respeto por ellos
y nuestra humildad ante ellos
que recibieron nuestros venerados antecesores
y que los nuestros venerados padres,
a un lado y otro en las venas de nuestro corazón,
los hicieron conocer en nuestro ser.

Ahora nosotros entregamos la tarea (a)
los nuestros hijos
¡Que no olviden, que les informen
a sus hijos intensamente como será
la su elevación,
como nuevamente se levantará el nuestro venerable sol
y precisamente como mostrará dignamente su fuerza
precisamente como tendrá a bien completar grandiosamente
su digna promesa esta
nuestra venerada y amada tierra madre Anáhuac!

Mi jornada hacia la vida, día 1069, I want to be Free


I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that i am not able to enjoy my work and daily responsibilities, because apparently this are only part of my daily obligations and apparently I am only able to enjoy the time that I commit to my personal projects, instead of actually seeing and realizing that my responsibilities at my work as within my process it´s also part of that opportunity of self creation and self growth to be able to expand my expression.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to believe that i am not able to fully enjoy my life because apparently my work gets in the middle between me and my enjoyment, instead of actually finding the way of creating within my work an opportunity for self growth and self expansion, placing personal challenges and persnal projects within it to also find enjoyment within each and every single thing that i do every day.

I commit myself to find and create enjoyment within my daily work to be able to see my work as part of that personal project that is not only a daily obligation, but something that can actually become so much more in my life to allow me to expand my self expression.

Mi jornada hacia la vida, día 1067, La consecuencia física de nuestras creencias




El cartílago de tiburón y los huevos de tortuga no curan enfermedades, no aportan proteinas, ni aporta absolutamente nada, sin embargo es uno de los principales motivos de la sobrepesca, lo cual ha llevado a un sinnúmero de especies a la extinción o al borde de ésta. No compremos en estos sistemas de creencia

Mi jornada hacia la vida, Día 1066, Buying our Rights from the Bill of Rights


What are the kind of things that create conflict in our world? What is the real reason behind all the excuses that we hear about the impossibility of guarantying for everyone the Rights that they should have, not because someone is supposed to give them to us, but because we (all - each and every single one of us) inherently have them since the moment of our birth to the moment of our death?

I made a video just a few days ago, I published it in this same blog and you are able to find it here (Día 1065). For those that don´t speak Spanish, the video that is titled "Redefiniendo la Disciplina - Redefining Discipline" I was sharing a situation in which a group of soldiers received the order to attack and kill a criminal group, from which they didn´t only killed grown ups, but also child´s from different ages, so that they were able to stop and eradicate any possible future leader of the group.

The criminal group that was attacked by the soldiers, were originally farmers who begin to plant other kinds of things besides mango and regional fruits, they began to plant Marijuana, Coca, Amapola, and so on, because the soil is just perfect to grow practically anything you want, because the soil is very fertile.

After the soldiers killed all the members of the criminal group and all the next generations, a group of women began a march knocking on each door with gun in hand, asking everyone to join them in the march to make an armed group of "self-defenses"; but it results that these women were actually mothers, sisters, daughters and partners of the members of that criminal group. And they said that those that didn´t joined them would be killed in the act, because they were going against them. The familiar of one person who was telling us about this situation, was one of the farmers who lived in the area and he was killed because he said that he wasn´t able to leave his work and his land as he needed to feed and take care of his family. So they first killed his son and then they killed him, because he basically said "NO".

My first conclusion was that the responsibility from such point of conflict and consequences began with the entrance of the military in the area, but it actually began much more earlier, in the moment that the farmers of the area got tired of receiving so little in exchange of so much effort, and they began to try and find something that could leave them more by doing the same that they have learned to do all their life, which is the only thing that they have ever known, because they live in an area where there is basically little resources for education, and the constant conflicts leave the people with less and less chances to attend a proper school. And now that I am seeing the video that I placed above, made by Cerise Poolman, I begin to realize, how I myself disregarded the point/factor of the money, as this symbol has become such a powerful and basic part of our life, that it can become such a justification to even take apart the life of anybody, because our own lifes depend on it.

We use it everyday, without even questioning how it would affect the people around us, how it would determine our life when someone else need´s it, and we are the closest and most desperate solution to get it, and get it quickly... I know, it´s not justifiable, but you know what? It can be so when the incentive is just right for the right person, because we will participate in the system, spite of knowing what we are participating in, as long as we earn just the right amount (it doesn´t matter what you do and or how you earn your money, whatever coin you have in your pocket makes you part of the system).

It´s really just OK that the things are the way they are? Is this really all that we are able to be? I would like to see a world where no one has to kill, manipulate or lie just to get a piece of paper. Wouldn´t you? At the very end if we really "have rights" shouldn´t we be able to have them without having to fight for them?

Mi jornada hacia la Vida, Día 1064, Work Is Pretty Fun

"I sometimes hear people complaining about their work and how they do not want to be there but rather be at home living and fulfilling their private interests. This is a limited way of looking at work. The solution is to make sure that regardless of where we are at, that we find ways to discover and empower ourselves. There are opportunities everywhere, however, in order to see them, we have to be OPEN and RECEPTIVE – and in order to ACT on them – we have to be DISCIPLINED and READY. To be able to master this approach we cannot accept and allow ourselves to remain in a state of whining and complaining. We have to be on our toes and READY to embrace whatever might come our way."
-Viktor Persson-
original source of the quote:
After reading this post made by Viktor Persson (link above), I coudn´t help to take this point back to myself and look at my own development in my current job, especially in relación to a point that i have been working with, in relación to my own relationship with my own way of dealing and facing my own mistakes.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a conflict with a coworker (not a discussion, but simply a difference of ideas), which brought a point of anger within me, because I din´t wanted to change or repeat a design that I already took quite a couple of hours to make, and more importantly, I didn´t wanted to face the fact that what this co-worker was pointing out, was a simple common sense point in which I din´t wanted to look only because I didn´t wanted to take the movement and effort of repentina the design that I was making.

And as I was looking at this event, from the starting point of the principle and statement that is made in that post, I began to notice how by playing my point of attention in pleasing the people around me, instead of focusing on myself, instead of taking a simple comment about my work, no to simple criticize it, but to actually make it better, instead of seeing the gift and potential of such moment, I allowed myself to go into conflict and taking it personal, instead of an opportunity of learning from my mistases, because that´s one of the hardest points to face in the moment, accepting and taking responsibility for whatever action one makes, for whatever word and thought one sepas, and all of that is impide within one singular action, because it began in a thought as an ilusión of the expectativas of grandeur, and it ends with reality by facing the fact that one is still a child learning 

It´s simply amazing and absurd how I have perceived myself as not being comfortable with my work, because in the first moment I do had that impulse of working and giving my best; nevertheless with the routine of the months, that impulse became weaker and weaker, and also my motivation of working for something more than my monthly paycheck, because I have defined my motivation in that energetic impulse that I had in the first moment that I got my job, but I din´t allowed myself to be committed, not with the job, or with the people within my job, but with myself, to see my work as a way of training, practicing, learning, for myself to expanda and grow myself.

And this is a cool opportunity to allow myself to make that commitment with myself of finding the gifts in every possible moment, situation, challenge, to always make and take of whatever I am doing the best of it and the best of myself.

Thanks for reading.
