    " The most powerful art in life, is to make your pain a powerful healing talisman.. a butterfly that is born in a colorful party!"

    Frida Khalo


    A thank you note with the greatest gratitude to the person who sent me good thoughts every day.

    Each of us is the portrait and "subject of what we know best."

    The reproduction through wisdom and patience of the piece of art that we call life, must be the prominent symbol in the greatest conversation in fantastic complexity and the wonderful mystery of being all here on Earth.



    An energy aligned with a fundamental and extremely honest character and the most expensive, vulnerable and fragile way of exposing ourselves in the legacy of consciousness that we will gain, obviously undertakes the individual revolutionary authenticity of the irreducible performance of the freedom of our human spirit!

    Every human is a question asked to the Spirit of the Universe,again and again,because every human is an endless row of humans and in all humans together dwelling the Great Human Spirit.

    Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

    Quote I cannot also help feeling that vaccination is a violation of the dictates of religion and morality.

    The vaccine is a filthy substance, and it is foolish to expect that one kind of filth can be removed by another.

    The fact of the matter is that it is only the self-interest of doctors that stands in the way of the abolition of this inhuman practice, for the fear of losing the large incomes that they at present derive from this source blinds them to the countless evils which it brings.

    Those who object to vaccination should observe all the more strictly the laws of health already explained; for the strict observance of these laws ensures in the system those vital forces which counteract all disease germs, and is, therefore, the best protection against small-pox as well as other diseases. If, while objecting to the introduction of the poisonous vaccine into the system, they surrendered themselves to the still more fatal poison of sensuality, they would undoubtedly forfeit their right to ask the world to accept their views on the matter.”
    Mahatma Gandhi, Indian lawyer and activist.

    Quote “How do these diseases arise? Surely by our negligence or indulgence.

    I overeat, I have indigestion, I go to a doctor, he gives me medicine, I am cured. I overeat again, I take his pills again.

    Had I not taken the pills in the first instance, I would have suffered the punishment deserved by me and I would not have overeaten again.

    The Doctor intervened and helped me to indulge myself.”
    Mahatma Gandhi, again.

    I think the above observation of Gandhi is just as appropriate today as it was then. For many, healthcare is still an unnecessarily costly affair.

    The accumulation of knowledge does not
    Lead to omniscience.
    Knowing what needs to be known,
    For every moment,
    In every moment is omniscience.
    It begins with Knowing one’s mind
    Is not one's mind.
