People go to their temples

People go to their temples to greet Me… How simple and ignorant are My children who think that I live in isolation. Why don’t they come and greet Me in the procession of life, where I always live, in the farms, the factories, and the market, where I encourage those who earn their living by […]

Penetrating the crevices of life

Life consists in opening cracks until finally understanding that that was the way to follow. And then I am again surprised by the capacity of life to find loopholes to let me continue creating. This is something that stuns me, as someone who well understands that life surpasses us and is beyond and above everything […]

The power of the frail

One hand on the beauty of the world. The other one on the suffering of the people. Both feet jumping from the task to the party. And the heart on fire. (Matxalen Ojanguren Alonso) In the weakness of the human our deepest truth is revealed, because the heartbeat of the world is its frailty. (Pepa […]

Homo Sapiens facing life or death

I read in EL PAÍS: “Men are going to have trouble being fertile in barely a decade, if they continue at this rate: the number of spermatozoa per ejaculation has not stopped falling for almost a century.

Awakening

Awakening or Enlightenment is traditionally considered to be the unity between the individual self and the ultimate Reality (what Sufis call Supreme Identity), generating a Wholeness or Non-duality that, including the entire reality, transmits to the individual a feeling of ultimate freedom and total fulfillment (…). An ultimate Reality that is not only the anchor […]

Memories, traces, hatreds

There are lights that do not go out, memories that won’t fade, hopes that are not lost, and people and facts that are not forgotten. Let us always think that in Life it is not so much the steps we have already taken that count, nor the steps we are taking…, but the footprints we […]

In the immensity of everything that exists

I made my consciousness flow to the farthest limit of my body, to ascertain whether I might not extend outside myself. I descended into the most hidden depths of my being, lamp in hand and ears alert, to discover whether in my innermost darkness I would not see the sparkles of the flowing current, whether […]

Al things are one

It is a strange thing that most of the feeling we call religious, most of the mystical outcrying which is one the most highly valued and desired reactions of our species, is really the attempt to say that man is related to the whole thing, that he has an inextricable relationship with the entire reality, […]
