"I long for a land where
No man was ever known

With no neurosis
No psychosis
No psychoanalysis"

Spider woman

She saw the spider in the bathtub while she was getting ready for an important meeting. With no time to spend she just wondered, but what if the spider also had an important meeting? Should she leave the spider there or should she save it immediately? The spider wouldn't go anywhere with the bathtub being so slippery, but she ended up deciding to save it later, for one successful being in the house would be one to many. And just like this she killed the spider's opportunity to go to it's important meeting and in such a way she ended up killing the spider, for those where just too many hours for the spider to survive without dreams.

sai um bolero para a mesa do canto

"Não é qualquer pessoa que sabe tirar um bolero
um bolero tem de ser sentido.
Ó chefe ande lá com isso,
o bolero precisa-se para a mesa do canto.
No canto senta-se a consumidora de boleros
que abre um espelho de bolso
e tira de lá a cara já pintada.
Não consome boleros noutro estado
tem de ser de lágrimas pintadas no rosto
e cantos da boca descaídos.
Em chegando o bolero
nele afoga lentamente o coração
pressionando bem para não vir mais à tona.
E fica a pergunta,
quem consome boleros ama ou não ama?
Ama demais ou já amou tudo o que havia para amar?"

Humans live. Humans die.

"Poetry lies still in the valley
the valley loses itself beneath the fog
the fog ages memories
memories live in eternity
eternity lingers in sadness
sadness sleeps with despair
despair deepens affection
affection reasons with life
life destroys youth
youth exhausts tiredness
tiredness meets with reflection
reflection sharpens clarity
clarity claims truth
truth strengthens."

If we are made of stars, why don't we behave like ones?

Darkness by Lord Byron

"I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguished, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came and went -and came, and brought no day,
And men forgot their passions in the dread
Of this their desolation; and all hearts
Were chilled into a selfish prayer for light;
And they did live by watchfires -and the thrones,
The palaces of crowned kings -the huts,
The habitations of all things which dwell,
Were burnt for beacons; cities were consumed,
And men were gathered round their blazing homes
To look once more into each other's face;
Happy were those which dwelt within the eye
Of the volcanoes, and their mountain-torch;
A fearful hope was all the world contained;
Forests were set on fire -but hour by hour
They fell and faded -and the crackling trunks
Extinguished with a crash -and all was black.
The brows of men by the despairing light
Wore an unearthly aspect, as by fits
The flashes fell upon them: some lay down
And hid their eyes and wept; and some did rest
Their chins upon their clenched hands, and smiled;
And others hurried to and fro, and fed
Their funeral piles with fuel, and looked up
With mad disquietude on the dull sky,
The pall of a past world; and then again
With curses cast them down upon the dust,
And gnashed their teeth and howled; the wild birds shrieked,
And, terrified, did flutter on the ground,
And flap their useless wings; the wildest brutes
Came tame and tremulous; and vipers crawled
And twined themselves among the multitude,
Hissing, but stingless -they were slain for food;
And War, which for a moment was no more,
Did glut himself again; -a meal was bought
With blood, and each sate sullenly apart
Gorging himself in gloom: no love was left;
All earth was but one thought -and that was death,
Immediate and inglorious; and the pang
Of famine fed upon all entrails -men
Died, and their bones were tombless as their flesh;
The meagre by the meagre were devoured,
Even dogs assailed their masters, all save one,
And he was faithful to a corse, and kept
The birds and beasts and famished men at bay,
Till hunger clung them, or the drooping dead
Lured their lank jaws; himself sought out no food,
But with a piteous and perpetual moan,
And a quick desolate cry, licking the hand
Which answered not with a caress -he died.
The crowd was famished by degrees; but two
Of an enormous city did survive,
And they were enemies: they met beside
The dying embers of an altar-place
Where had been heaped a mass of holy things
For an unholy usage: they raked up,
And shivering scraped with their cold skeleton hands
The feeble ashes, and their feeble breath
Blew for a little life, and made a flame
Which was a mockery; then they lifted up
Their eyes as it grew lighter, and beheld
Each other's aspects -saw, and shrieked, and died - 
Even of their mutual hideousness they died,
Unknowing who he was upon whose brow
Famine had written Fiend. The world was void,
The populous and the powerful was a lump,
Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless - 
A lump of death -a chaos of hard clay.
The rivers, lakes, and ocean all stood still,
And nothing stirred within their silent depths;
Ships sailorless lay rotting on the sea,
And their masts fell down piecemeal; as they dropped
They slept on the abyss without a surge - 
The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave,
The Moon, their mistress, had expired before;
The winds were withered in the stagnant air,
And the clouds perished! Darkness had no need
Of aid from them -She was the Universe!"

Carl Gustav Jung

Quanto mais penso na vida mais certeza tenho de que nasci para me tornar moribunda, morrer e voltar a nascer, mais acordada do que nunca.

Rumi (1207-1273)

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

om mani padme hum

The Jewel in the Lotus - The Mantra of Compassion This is the highest Mantra for mankind gifted to us by the thousand Buddhas out of their compassion for all sentient beings. It will protect us from all harm , sufferings , ill health , hell regions, It will purify us and free us from all our negative emotions of the Mind and speech. This mantra saves us from the hell regions and hungry ghosts which we have to encounter during and after death. Hence it is beneficial and a most valubale saviour not only during Life on Earth but also after Life , when we have to remain and pass through the six Hell regions in the Bardos. Each syllable in this six syllable Mantra liberates us from one realm of suffering out of each of the six realms of suffering filled existence.
OM liberates and purifies us from the emotions of bliss and pride in the samsaric realm of the Gods. MA liberates and purifies us from the emotions of jealousy and lust for entertainment in the samsaric realm of Demi-Gods.
NI liberates and purifies us from the emotions of passion and desire in the samsaric realm of Humans. PAD liberates and purifies us from the emotions of stupidity and prejudice in the samsaric realm of animals.
ME liberates and purifies us from the emotions of poverty and possessiveness in the samsaric realm of hungry ghosts.
 HUM liberates and purifies us from the emotions of agression and hatred in the samsaric realm of hell. In this way by freeing our consciousness , our spirit energy from the neurotic attachments that our senses are bonded with through the cravings and aversions constantly taking place inside of us ... and in this way creating negative karmas that keep us bound to sufferings and also creating samsara.
 The mantra OM MANI PADME HUM purifies us at 3 levels - Mind, Speech and Body and in this way liberates us from all our negative karmas. Within a short time of meditating on this Mantra , you will experience the opening and development of your heart chakra and begin to feel highly kind and compassionate towards other sentient beings including animals , even the tiny helpless ones . You will develop a magnetic aura around you that will draw other people towards you , attracting them like a magnet attracts iron filings and love will begin to flow in your Life.
Saying this mantra for 21 minutes daily will energise and develop your Heart Chakra and ..... when the Heart and Mind become united , anything is possible.
 This Mantra is popularly known as "The Jewel in the Lotus"or "The Diamond in the Lotus"
("mani" means Diamond , a precious jewel and Padma means Lotus flower which is the spiritual symbol of consciousness ) The Jewel refers to the Mind or consciousness and the Lotus refers to the Heart that is the source of Love energy The meaning of OM MANI PADME HUM is "Om , salutations to the Jewel of consciousness (the Mind) which has reached the Heart's lotus. " A Very Very Important Message Regarding Mantras Your outer world is governed by your inner world, so Divine Powers that are generated inside you , now start making all positive events happen in your life in the outer world. This inner world is nothing but your intent which actually you are expressing in the mantra. So , here ,I wish to make the most valuable statement about mantras. If you don't understand the meaning of the mantra you are repeating and what you are saying to the cosmos from your spirit and subconscious mind, - if you are not visualising this meaning of the mantra by feeling the meaning of the mantra deep within your soul , while saying the mantra , then it is not going to benefit you much . Most people don't even understand what the mantra is all about even after using it for years , so they do not progress much , so we encourage you to understand the explanations we have given on each mantra and which Divine Energies it is attracting and addressing ."

Somewhere in your life someone is going to ask you if you belong to the half that sees the cup half full or if you belong to the half that sees the cup half empty.
But what if you are one of those who sees the cup half full and half empty at the same time?

Faz 75 anos que Fernando Pessoa morreu

"Se penso mais que um momento
Na vida que eis a passar,
Sou para o meu pensamento
Um cadáver a esperar.

Dentro em breve (poucos anos
É quanto vive quem vive),
Eu, anseios e enganos,
Eu, quanto tive ou não tive,

Deixarei de ser visível
Na terra onde dá o Sol,
E, ou desfeito e insensível,
Ou ébrio de outro arrebol,

Terei perdido, suponho,
O contacto quente e humano
Com a terra, com o sonho,
Com mês a mês e ano a ano.

Por mais que o Sol doire a face
Dos dias, o espaço mudo
Lembra-nos que isso é disfarce
E que é a noite que é tudo."

Fernando Pessoa
