El karma no es una ley devolutiva, es una ley compensativa.
Si estacionas el auto fuera de casa y te lo roban, no esperes encontrar el mismo modelo estacionado en el mismo sitio al día siguiente, porque puede que recibas un auto distinto, como puede que recibas algo diferente.
Las personas en Occidente han malinterpretado la ley del karma y su propósito natural. Incluso hay camisetas que se venden en lote con la frase: «Si me jodes, el karma te joderá».
Es parte de la cosmovisión occidental creer que una acción determinada produce un efecto similar. …
Querido extraño, estas son algunas de mis cosas favoritas sobre ti:
Eres un descubrimiento constante. Tu vida es un viaje lleno de aventuras. Eres una de las personas más increíbles y únicas en la Tierra (y te aseguro que he conocido a algunas de las personas más increíbles y únicas del mundo).
Eres una inspiración para mí y para todas las demás personas que son diferentes y maravillosas, porque no eres uno de nosotros, sino algo más que nosotros.
De hecho, existes completamente fuera de los límites de un día a día normal.
En cierto modo, eres la luz en la tormenta. Eres un ejemplo asombroso de lo que las personas valientes pueden lograr, de lo que puedes hacer si solo trabajas en ello. …
Since I was little, I can remember other lives.
Lives I’ve never lived, according to adults,
but eternal lives that have never faded.
I am not afraid of death
because I have been there before.
I have ridden through its doors
and seen halls full of wealth.
Death brings us closer to an
but darkness lasts only a second.
Uncertainty disappears then, and
you understand everything
that never made sense on Earth.
Your sorrows are gone
while pain is ripped from your chest.
You are someone else
and you are being born again.
Another woman is your mother,
another man calls you “daughter” or “son”.
It can be confusing at first, but you soon understand
that God has given you an infinite soul
and unlimited opportunities to expand it. …
Dreaming about becoming an actor, musician, entrepreneur, fashion designer or even the CEO of an investment fund can be very stressful and draining, especially when all our motivation comes from the ego.
I am one of those people who grew up thinking that the purpose of life was to fulfill “big dreams.” Then I discovered that thinking this way only made me feel like a failure almost all the time.
Big dreams are definitely overrated, simply because every single human being has some kind of personal aspiration, and no dream is more important or bigger than another.
What many people call “high aspirations” is about having more and more money. The theory is that the more possessions you have, the closer you will be to fulfillment … But you’ve probably already realized that life doesn’t work that way. …
A few years ago, I tried to kill myself.
Suicide was an attempt to break my mind, a struggle against my pain and against me, and to escape the feeling of isolation and loneliness.
Now, I believe that closeness to death also brings us somehow closer to life. I know this because every day for the next year I fought for what I believed to be the most important, most meaningful things to me.
Sometimes, darkness is what you need to discover what’s inside you. It can be a bit frightening when we come across the darkest places we have to face in our lives, but then we discover ourselves in the middle of a beautiful silence, a healthy absence that can help us to rebuild our will to live. …
We generally believe that we came into the world with a purpose, a mission that gives our life meaning. However, maybe it is not about finding a specific life purpose, but discovering a purpose for each moment in life.
When we assume that our entire existence revolves around a moment or a dream, it means that we will never feel whole until all the stars align in one direction.
Believing that there is only one possible path for the soul is another way to die, but while still alive. The universe is infinite. …
Here are some of my favorite things about you:
You are an adventure. Your life is a voyage full of adventure. You’re just one of the most incredible and unique people on Earth, and I’ve met some of the world’s most amazing and unique people.
You’re an inspiration to me, to all other people who are different and wonderful, because you are not one of us — you are something other than us, in fact, you exist completely outside the confines of your normal day-to-day life.
In a way, you are the light in the storm, you are an amazing example of what brave people can achieve, of what you can do if you just work at it. …
Last winter, my father died of cancer. He was only 54, which was tragically young. His cancer was discovered the day after his birthday. He knew he would never celebrate another birthday again, but even though he was diagnosed with cancer, he was still determined to enjoy every minute.
My father didn’t care much about time, but what he could do with it. How he could turn the remaining months into joyous memories for a lifetime. This was his philosophy:
Make your existence a journey with meaning. Choose a cause, make sense of things.
I remember myself sitting on the leather couch in the living room when I was six years old. I sat on the edge, and my father was sitting next to me. His arm pulled around me because he thought I looked cold. I did not feel cold though. …
The day the doctor told me that the cancer had spread through your body, and you wouldn’t have more than a couple of months to live, I felt a heavy weight resting on my chest. I wanted to scream but all my sadness and anger resented into silent sobs, and the days and months passed like that.
I can’t understand why you had to leave so soon. You had never cared about me when I was young, but now that you knew you were going to die, you wanted my company and I wanted yours.
I didn’t know how to talk to you back then, I was afraid. I was afraid of hurting you with my questions, afraid of being hurt by your answers. Furthermore, I was afraid to find out that you never loved me and that the reason you didn’t was that I was never the person you wanted. …
