´WHAT IS A STRANGER DOING IN A STRANGE COUNTRY?´ somebody asked. I was excited, and felt at the same time uneasy. Whenever I see the sea, or a fire, I fall silent, impressed by their elemental force.
‘Creatures used to traveling, know about moving on.´I said. And we all have to be prepared for change. When something or someone evolves, everything around that thing or person evolves as well. People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of and willing to achieve what they need and want. The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. When you can´t go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.
I love to look at the people in the streets: they are coming and going, and all of them seem to be very busy. Everybody seems to have a clear idea of how other people should live their lives, but none of them about his or her own. In the end they all believe the world´s greatiest lie.
I learnt to see the world through my eyes and not someone else´s. People are afraid to persue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don´t deserve them, or that they´ll be unable to achieve them. That´s a shame, because everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is.
Personally I know that I´ll never be able to escape from my heart. So for me at least, it is better to listen to what it has to say.
There is an universal language that deals with the past and the present of all people. Time is a storm in which we are all lost. The past is part of the present. Read the past and discover what has already been forgotten. But the secret for the future is here in the present. I try not to live in either my past or my future.
Life can be a party, a grand festival, if you can concentrate always on the present. Basicly I want to live the present as I do the lessons of my past and my dreams about the future. Without being impatient.
I eat when it´s time to eat, and move along when it´s time to move along. Without fear.
To die tomorrow is no worse than dying on any other day. Every day is there to be lived or to mark one´s departure from this world. But, most important, I am able every day to live out my dream. It´s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
The closer I get to realizing my destiny, the more that destiny becomes my true reason for being. I´m trying to realize my reason for being and I am at the point where I´m about to give it all up. If I start out by promising what I don´t even have yet, I´ll lose my desire to work toward getting it.
I often become complety lost, learning how to achieve a masterpiece. I prefer the taste of battle, and the thrill of not knowing what the outcome will be. If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise. If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur.
It´s mostly fear of failure that keeps me from attempting the masterpiece. So I must free myself from negative thoughts. Am I going to hold on to what little I have, because I´m too insignificant to conquer the world? Or will I go and try?
There must be a language in the world that everyone understands: the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as a part of a search for something believed in and desired.
No project is completed until its objective has been achieved. So I guess I´ll see you soon. With or without any news.
