Are you scarred too ? You should be at least a little worried.

I was always concerned about my future. When I was playing basketball when I had my first serious injury the doctors said that this type of injury could always come back and when it does I should take a time-out  3-6 weeks of training. If i remember correctly those words , the doctor’s words, were a decisive point in my life. In the next year I quit basketball and ended my career of professional basketball player. I always thought , how often the pain will kick in ? Will it last longer than 6 weeks ? I was scared  of investing all my time in basketball so that a simple injury can sent me to the bench. The truth is , I wasn’t a superstar too. I was an average player , who trained from the bottom to get were I was. You know what they say in sport. “You either have talent and the rest is workout or you don’t have talent at all and you put all your heart and soul in it” Let’s say that I begin playing basketball talentless.

After I quit basketball , I chose to follow a very hard university from my country, because being not normal in my country would leave me with no money. ( expensive clothes , expensive privileges, etc ). I am not that guy who would do anything to get somewhere ( stealing , cheating , blackmail ) , well, maybe I am , I don’t know. I mean, I never had to feel the pain of starvation, the pain of feeling the cold in the bones, so , I don’t know what would I do then. I keep telling myself that I wouldn’t do this or that , but , who knows?

Today , we are living, in a hypnotize society with artificial morals with feelings that are fueled by the porn industries. With people that judge other people by the color of the skin , by the color of the clothes, hell , I have friends that can easily judge a person just for the simple fact that one person is wearing black, and later they go and praise a God , a God who says love your close-by no matter what.  All this , what i said , was in the past,  in the past , were I was still young, a young man, who cared only for his future, a future that this man thought can only be molded by the same person who’s holding the strings.

But what happens if there are other things that are holding the strings ? What happens when you try to go forward but there is a big chain bound to your legs ? Imagine now , that there are a lot of people who have this chain bounded by their legs and with every step that they make the chain becomes heavier and heavier to the point where they would simply can’t walk anymore and they would simply die dyhidrated.

 

I wish for this to be a dream.

“Sir, can you spare a quarter?”

They are everywhere. Everyday you see them , you pass by them and you keep going. Do you care about them ? No. They are the last of our civilization, in a world in which our society tries to create the “perfect machine” they are the ones who are in need.

Yes, they are the  poor people of cities , homeless people, street people. Today society teaches us that we need to have a big objective, an objective  towards which we need to focus all  our strength and our attention so that we can complete or at least be very close to it.

In such a robotic world they are just simple shadows. Most people are taught to avoid those “shadows”, to be careless. You even consider them to be from a organization, criminals, thieves and many different types of law breakers.You just assume that they are bad?!…My friend , why?

Often in your life you will have the surprise to come across to a person who will have just a little more power then you and torture you in every way that he could do. If this can happen in a civilized world why could not happen to a small scale , a scale where justice and laws can’t reach in time or not at all. Well , to those “3rd civilization” such things can happen since the moment they were born, force to beg , “stoned” so that they could easily be manipulated with no chance of getting a normal life.

Unfortunately many of us pass by them without even looking at them. But if you stop and think , a single word, one moment of negligence can transform you in a “3rd world shadow”, a shadow at the end of a street under a wet tree, dogging rain .A tired shadow that yells at this society  to wake up from this robotic dream.

“Survival is that story that never ends.”

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.

“How can you freely express yourself without being embarrassed? How can you let people know how you feel?”

Why is so hard to really have someone that can truly understand you and who can love you for what you are ?In my case  everybody is telling me that I have to change , that I have to grow mature but I don’t want to give up to my inner child . This second  personality of mine helped me a lot when I was in trouble. I always used to ask myself  “If I been hurt , how soon is to soon to get hurt again ?”

“Laugh and the world laughs with you, Cry and you cry alone.”

I learned that is never to soon , you can not be ready for what will happen.What you can do is to  buy a popcorn and wait for something to happen. This personality who likes to watch , this is the child who always smile who will never ask a question , he will just sit there and enjoy his popcorn.Most of the times we are trying so hard not to care but deep inside us we are wired to care.I think emotion are like paper planes , you build them  from a insignificant paper  and when you are ready to release them , they just don’t want to fly. I build so many paper planes and I will  keep on building until someday one will fly.

There…at last.

 A glass with water…

There isn’t the perfect question or the perfect answer but there is the right time to put a question or the right time for an answer, or maybe it is  time to ignore the possibility that there had been a question and you would be surprised to see how simple an answer could bee.

Sometimes we have the impression that life sounds a little more complicated than it usually is. Well…You are right, it is,it was, and definitely it will be again. We live the days of the  “ignorant peace”. All that you see are zombies, aliens ,big conspirative ideas and with every second that pass you forget the true meaning of life.We are so deep in this “society” , the speed of this routine is increasing so fast and in the end you will be there regretting why you let yourself to be so manipulative.

 …the game is on, with no referees and we just play hide and seek with the world. We play the same game that our ancestor played but it’s bigger and it will be much bigger until it will crash. (simple like that )

“EVERYTHING PUT TOGETHER FALLS APART.”

Meanwhile you can choose a hypothetical world ending 😀

Without a great goal in life , there is a danger that despite with all the pleasant diversion you might have enjoyed while alive , you will end up realizing that you lived a sad life.

In other words you will look back and see that you wasted your one chance at living.Instead of spending your life  searching for some “genuinely” thing,  you  walked blindly ,distracted by  the  many  bubbles of  satisfaction. But even if you can identify your greatest goal in life , there is a slight way that you will not reach your goal.

Well,I can say that for this kind of problem are schools , universities, people that can help us to build a strategy , to arrange the goals in a hierarchy , so that you will be able to sacrifice your smaller goals in purpose to obtain the greatest ones.Think about a pyramid , to build the highest level you must sacrifice the bottom parts. Oh, it would be so much easy if everything were like on papers. But the  cold wind of the reality always kicks your face . Even when you though that you finished your pyramid and you almost reached the highest level, there is always a brick that will break your entire construction.It is like something that I herd:

When a door closes another one opens”.

“What Do You Want Out Of Life?”

Probably the best answer that you will find it will be like “a good job and a nice house” but these are really just some of the things  you want in life. I am asking you “What you really want from life?”. I am asking not for the goals you form as you go about your daily activities but for your grand goal in living. Probably many of you will have trouble naming this goal.It is very important to have such a goal in life. Why?!

Deep inside us , we know what we want minute by minute during our life but we never stopped to think about our greatest goal in life. Our culture , our society doesn’t encourage people to think about such goals. Indeed, our society provides us with an endless stream of distraction and satisfaction so that we don’t have to think about it.  The saddest thing is that somehow we are aware of this prison and we continue choose  to  live in it. I just hope the storm that is coming will help us to find the lost key from our door.

3…2…1…Happy New Year!

Album
Already 2013!

It is time to say goodbye to 2012! A whole  new year is coming, a year with a lot of  new opportunities , new roads in life, and a bunch of new friends.Year 2012 I want to believe that it was the best year in my life, a year that had completely change me in a much better person . I dedicate 2013 to my career because from now on I am a grown man and with this power comes a lot responsibilities (thank you Spider Man for your wise words:P).I think deep inside me I want to remain always a child but I don’t want to be  like a drop of water in a big ocean . In reality even the ocean is a multitude of drops.The point is that, depends on you if you want to be a single drop or a big ocean. Year 2012 was a unique year and it will always remain in my heart.

For now I wish you  HAPPY NEW YEAR!  May God gives you light on the path that you all choose to follow!
