Es la vida una competencia? — 27 marzo, 2012

Es la vida una competencia?

El fin de semana un terrible accidente me abrió los ojos. Uno cree que la vida es una competencia para decidir quién es mejor o más afortunado. La vida es solo la vida, es un pasar por este planeta unos cuantos años y luego desaparecer para siempre (o por lo menos para quienes nos conocieron).

¿Cuántas noches hemos pasado sin dormir pensando en lo que sucederá al día siguiente y dejamos de disfrutar ese momento de descanso o de intimidad?

Hemos vistos personas sufriendo realmente y aun somos tan insensibles como para quejarnos de la primera trivialidad que nos sucede. Seamos agradecidos con la vida y dejemos a un lado los problemas ya que todo tiene solución a excepción de la muerte.

Errores, excusas, problemas, enfermedades solo brillan porque nos hacen ver la realidad de lo duro que es la vida pero ¿cuántas veces olvidamos las alegrías , triunfos y satisfacciones?

Ego is the word!

There is a great story in 2 King 5 which I’ve always been intrigued with.  Naaman the leper wanted to be healed so he went to the spiritual guru of the day, Elisha, and asked for healing.  He was told to go down to the river Jordan, deep seven times, and he would be healed.  Naaman was indignant, feeling that a man of his prominence should be received more formally and a more elegant healing ceremony should be offered.  He walked away in fury.  Sometime later, he became more humble, followed through with Naaman’s advice and was healed.

This story is so relevant to the human predicament.  A man with an ailment wanted relief but he wanted this relief on his own terms. Elisha intuitively knew that a critical dimension of Naaman’s problem was ego and he knew that an appropriate step for him to take was to humble…

Deja-Vu — 19 marzo, 2012

Deja-Vu

When you see familiar faces,
But you don’t remember where they’re from,
Could you be wrong?
When you’ve been particular places,
That you know you’ve never been before,
Can you be sure?
‘Cause you know this has happened before,
And you know that this moment in time is for real,
And you know when you feel Deja vu.

Chorus:
Feel like I’ve been here before,
Feel like I’ve been here before.

Ever had a conversation,
That you realize you’ve had before,
Isn’t it strange?
Have you ever talked to someone,
And you feel you know what’s coming next?
It feels pre-arranged.
‘Cause you know that you’ve heard it before,
And you feel that this moment in time is for real,
‘Cause you know when you feel deja-vu.
