... ¿Enfrentarse al miedo, a probar algo nuevo, ni seguridad ni estabilidad, que no parezca cuerdo.... que nos haga despertar y sentir la pura vida?....

This true story melts my heart!!!!!
BURNT TOAST! a  story that melts my heart!!!!

"When I was a kid, my Mom liked to cook food and then I remember she used to cook for us.

One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day´s work, Mom placed a plate of bread, jam and extremely burnt toast in front of my Dad.

I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast.

But Dad just ate his toast and asked me how was my day at school.

I don´t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I Heard Mom apologising to Dad for the burnt toast.

And I´ll never forget what he said:" Honey, I love burnt toast."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy, good night and I asked him if he really liked his toast burnt.

He wrapped me in his arms and said: " Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired.

And besides a burnt toast never hurts anyone but harsh words do!"

"You know son - life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people.

I´m not the best and am hardly good at anything!

I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I´ve learnt over the years is:to accept each others faults and choose to celebrate relationaships.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets!

Love the people who treat you right and have compassion for the ones who don´t...

Enjoy life now! It has an expiry date.

JUST TWO COINS!

A young student, was one day taking a walk with a professor, who was commonly called the students' friend, for his kindness to those who waited on his instructions. As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes, which they supposed, belonged to a poor man who was employed in a field close by, and who had nearly finished his day's work. The student turned to the professor, saying: "Let us play the man a trick: we will hide his shoes, and conceal ourselves behind those bushes, and wait to see his perplexity when he cannot find them." "My friend" answered the professor, "We should never amuse ourselves at the expense of the poor. But you are rich, and may give yourself a much greater pleasure to the poor man. Put a coin into each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch how the discovery affects him."
 
The student did so, and they both placed themselves behind the bushes close by. The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes. While putting on his coat he slipped his foot into one of his shoes; but feeling something hard, he stooped down to feel what it was, and found the coin. Astonishment and wonder were seen upon his countenance. He gazed upon the coin, turned it round, and looked at it again and again. He then looked around him on all sides, but no person was to be seen. He now put the money into his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other shoe; but his surprise was doubled on finding the other coin. His feelings overcame him; he fell upon his knees, looked up to heaven and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving, in which he spoke of his wife, sick and helpless, and his children without bread, whom the timely bounty, from some unknown hand, would save from perishing.
 
The student stood there deeply affected, and his eyes filled with tears. "Now," said the professor, "Are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick?" The youth replied, "You have taught me a lesson which I will never forget. I feel now the truth of those words, which I never understood before:
'It is more blessed to give, than to receive.

¡¡¡¡Una de mis poesías preferidas!!!!
 
Hoy quiero compartir una poesía que me impresiona.... esta poesía viene a mi mente al pensar en mi tía Elsa Bell Taylor... a quien quiero con toda mi alma. Si hay algo que la caracterizó fue su alegría, su sonrisa y risa (que es como siempre la recuerdo) y recordaré...

El poema dice así:

"Defender la alegría como una trinchera
defenderla del escándalo y la rutina
de la miseria y de los miserables
de las ausencias transitorias
y las definitivas

defender la alegría como un principio
defenderla del pasmo y las pesadillas
de los neutrales y de los neutrones
de las dulces infamias
y los graves diagnósticos

defender la alegría como una bandera
defenderla del rayo y la melancolía
de los ingenuos y de los canallas
de la retórica y los paros cardiacos
de las endemias y las academias

defender la alegría como un destino
defenderla del fuego y de los bomberos
de los suicidas y los homicidas
de las vacaciones y del agobio
de la obligación de estar alegres

defender la alegría como una certeza
defenderla del óxido y la roña
de la famosa pátina del tiempo
del relente y del oportunismo
de los proxenetas de la risa

defender la alegría como un derecho
defenderla de dios y del invierno
de las mayúsculas y de la muerte
de los apellidos y las lástimas
del azar
y también de la alegría"

POEMA DEFENSA DE LA ALEGRIA de Mario Benedetti

O sea ¡ defendamos la alegría a viento y marea, a capa y espada!... Y ¡si! hay tantas cosas en el mundo o sucesos que nos pueden ir apagando la alegría....algunas personas ya no logran ni sonreir.
Sin embargo hay otras que a pesar de haber vivido barbaridades y justificaríamos su falta de alegría .... no perdieron su alegría.....¿de qué depende?
 
La  alegría es una decisión consciente.  No perder nuestra alegría puede  ser, en algunos casos inclusive, el resultado de un esfuerzo exhaustivo. Este poema me hace reflexionar...

Nuestra alegría no parece depender de lo que sucede en nuestro exterior...mas bien de cómo decidimos enfocar nuestro mundo interior: nuestra mente y nuestras emociones.  ¿Enfocamos hacia arriba o hacia abajo?, ¿ hacia lo positivo o hacia lo negativo? ¿decidimos aprender o amargarnos?, ¿decidimos actuar o quejarnos?, ¿decidimos rectificar o seguir equivocados? ¿decidimos imponernos o deprimirnos? ¿decidimos oír a nuestra conciencia o silenciarla?....

Ver una alegría pura y sincera muestra el grado de salud de nuestra alma, el grado de  fe y confianza y, muestra quien esta ganando esta batalla.

 ¡Que importante es la alegría!

¿Sabes qué sembrar?
"Si siembras un pensamiento, cosechas una acción. Si cosechas una acción, siembras un hábito y cuando siembras un hábito, cosechas un carácter. Si siembras un carácter, cosechas un destino."

Qué importante es vigilar nuestros pensamientos y asegurarnos que éstos sean siempre positivos, buenos y correctos.... de esto depende nuestro destino.  Les deseo a todos tener muy buenos pensamientos siempre, en todo momento.

Each person shines his own way!
EACH PERSON SHINES HIS OWN WAY!

"A Samurai who was known for his nobility and honesty, went to visit a Zen Monk to ask him for his advice.

When the monk had finished his prayers, the Samurai asked. Why do I feel so inferior? I have faced death many times, have defended those who are weak. Nevertheless, upon seeing you meditating. I felt that my life had absolutely no importance whatsoever.

Wait. Once I have attended to all those who come to see me today. I shall answer you, replied the monk.

The Samurai spent whole day sitting in the temple gardens, watching people go in and out in search of advice.  He saw how the Monk received them all with same patience and same illuminated smile on his face.

At nightfall, when everyone had gone, he demanded: Now can you teach me?
The Master invited him in and lead him to his room. The full moon shone in the sky, and atmosphere was one of profound tranquility.

Do you see the moon, how beautiful it is? It will cross the entire firmament, and tomorrow the sun will shine once again.
But sunlight is much brighter, and can show the details of the landscape around us: trees, mountains, clouds.  
I have contemplated the two for years, and have never heard the moon say: why do I not shine like the sun? is it because I am inferior?
Of course not, answered the Samurai. The moon and the sun are different things, each has its own beauty. You cannot compare the two.

So you know the answer. We are two different people, each fighting in his own way for that which he believes, and making it possible to make the world a better place; the rest are mere appearances."

... are you smiling now? :) good!

Esta frase rige mi vida....
Una de las frases más bonitas y que más me ha impactado en la vida es la siguiente: "Protege la Rectitud y la Rectitud te protegerá". 

Sobre este tema: la Rectitud... hoy compartiré estas líneas...

"El lugar donde nace la Rectitud es el corazón. Lo que emana del corazón como una idea pura al ser trasladado a la acción será llamado Rectitud. Si hay que decirlo de una manera que puedan comprenderlo, uno puede decirles: Haz a otros lo que tu deseas que te hagan a ti, eso es la Rectitud. La Rectitud consiste en evitar aquellos actos que lastimarían a otros. Si alguien te causa felicidad, a tu vez debes hacer aquellas cosas que causarían felicidad a otros. Cuando reconocemos que lo que otros hacen causará dificultades y nosotros hacemos las mismas cosas, eso es actuar incorrectamente."
del libro LA VERDAD ¿Qué es la verdad? Sathya Sai Baba.

SOCRATES!!!! so right!!!!
 "Desciende a las profundidades de ti mismo, y logra ver tu alma buena. La felicidad la hace solamente uno mismo con la buena conducta".

"Es preferible sufrir una injusticia, que cometerla".
Sócrates

Les invito a leer un par de frases de Sócrates. Me es interesante indagar sobre el tema de la rectitud, sobre la acción correcta o buena conducta. Tomando la palabra buena como aquello que nace de la "bondad".
Es a veces claro qué es lo correcto y qué no lo es pero a veces.... nos cuesta discernir y esto se debe a que la visión clara está nublada por cierto afecto o apego, por el miedo, el orgullo, en una palabra: el ego.
Así que me parece que debemos estar alertas a si una decisión viene de nuestra alma buena o de nuestro ego. No es fácil tarea....pero indagando y esforzándonos a indagar dentro "en las profundidades de nosotros mismos" sabremos equivocarnos menos, comprenderemos cada vez mejor lo que es actuar correctamente y por lo tanto nos podremos acercar cada vez más a obtener el bien más preciado para el ser humano: la felicidad.

Lo dijo un genio y sabio...Albert Einstein!!!!
"Intenta no volverte un hombre de éxito sino volverte un hombre de valor" Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein dejó claro que debemos darle la máxima importancia a la educación del carácter.  ¿Y cómo?
Existen tres tipos de educadores: los que inspiran, los que explican y los que se quejan. ¿El peor método? el que se queja ... ¿El mejor? el que inspira,... ¡pero  ojo ! también es necesario que explique.
 Hace 16 años que estudio un método excelente de cómo debemos explicar los valores  a través de historias. Si bien hoy en día podemos encontrar infinitos recursos sobre valores humanos, este método profundiza los valores de una manera especial y divertida.... es para mí el método en excelencia.
Poco a poco lo iré compartiendo con todos ustedes.
