Repentance: what does it mean to you?

Repentance: what does it mean to you?

When I listen to the word “repentance” my brain tends to associate it with the old religious belief that we must confess our sins. Having to confess our sins is a biased statement I believe, as it implies that we are all sinners who in order to avoid “punishment” must seek repentance. Throughout history, religion has used so many vocables to propagate dogma that many of us today, don’t know the original meaning of the words we commonly use as part of our vocabulary. Becoming aware of the origin of our internal and external dialogue is pivotal if we want to bring positive change to our lives, or better, if we want to understand what is to bring positive change to our lives. Simply put, we can’t continue to think, write and speak on an unconscious way.

THE REDEMPTION OF THE FEMININE ENERGY: A MAN’S THING

THE REDEMPTION OF THE FEMININE ENERGY: A MAN’S THING

Even when on the superficial levels that we all prefer to observe, it might seem different, the world is not in the current situation because of its religious, political and economic wars. The world is the way it is simply because we, its human inhabitants – it is important to exclude the rest of the animal kingdom and clarify that humans are comprised of men and women in almost equal numbers – have not yet made peace with both, the masculine and feminine energies that simultaneously flow within each and every one of us. On deeper levels that might not be evident to the naked eye, what’s still unsolved and unforgiven is all the pain and suffering that men and women have inflicted on each other throughout human history in the name of religion, politics, and the economy. These might be quite unsettling asseverations to some. But whether we like it or not, we must admit that we are a by-product of our past…let us not forget that energy – and we are only that – can only be transformed but never created or destroyed.

LOVE: AN EXPERIENCE, NOT A MEMORY

LOVE: AN EXPERIENCE, NOT A MEMORY

The reason why we must live in the present is simple: It is the ONLY space and time where we are able to experience love. Yes, love can’t be found in the past or the future, and the only way we can create something new is by loving it in the now. So why is it that so many of us insist on staying in the past, if what we live there is only an illusion and nothing new can be created from that space and time?

ENTHUSIASM: WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

ENTHUSIASM: WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

It is so common to see so many using the word “enthusiasm” without even knowing its undertones. To be honest, I was one of them until a friend of mine a few years back taught me what I didn’t know : the meaning that millions are still taking for granted.

If we go to the Merriam-Webster dictionary we’ll find that it will be described as a “strong excitement about something, a strong feeling of active interest in something that you like or enjoy.” This is the usual way of seeing it. But where does this excitement or strong feeling come from? In order to find out we must do some etymological research to observe that “enthous” in Greek means possessed by god, inspired by god.

CHOOSING OUR BEST ADDICTIONS

CHOOSING OUR BEST ADDICTIONS

Did you know that we are all addicts on this planet? Yes, by simply being humans we are all individuals that are addicted to the reality we live and share, and to all of the negative and positive possible creations that it is constantly offering us. Many of you are probably already feeling an uncomfortable aftertaste because of what I just wrote. But let me expand a little more, perhaps you will agree with me at the end of this article. If not, please don’t worry, I will still love you the same.
