To the Weird Ones (a poem)

5/13/2019
Always feeling alone With just a few that you could call your own Being a fugitive all around And with a sense of home when no one’s in town Have tried to explain or make a sense But with hopes always becoming less Divided between the “normal” and the truth In desperation, all thoughts will endure Family, siblings, and friends Cannot understand why you are so careless Being in a world of your own No one feels your love for the unknown Now your spark flashes from inside And...

The 2 Profound Keys of Self Development

3/15/2019
I think we all agree that human improvement is an important factor in our lives, regardless of worldview. Could we therefore enrich and recognize ways that promote this process? While there is a huge industry of personal development methods with ramifications of productivity, joy, relationships, etc., I would say that in fact the vast majority of them by nature are made to be restrictive on a large scale. Even if these methods are useful, they are just tools, they are ways of approaching...

The Vanity of Criticism on Others

1/4/2019
It seems that we have the tendency to criticize others with the certainty that we know what is appropriate for them. But do we ever take into account that they have a different mind and different needs? Because behind this attitude is hidden an underlying egoism which is leading us away from being open to different ideas but most importantly to potential changes that are required for our own characters.

What is it to be Mindful and in the Present Moment

12/7/2018
A basic feature of our mind is that it is very often "lost" in a series of thoughts that affect how we feel, how we see things and how we react to situations. Most importantly, however, we are not experiencing the situations we are in, creating impressions from the perspective of our ideas and far from direct objective experience. The latter can only be achieved if we remain present and awake observers, but what exactly do we mean when we say we are mindful and how this is achieved? As a...

The Meaning of Self-Awareness

11/23/2018
What do we mean when we say I know myself? That is, say, I know something that is myself and belongs to me? So I know myself but not me. But who is me that is something other than myself? These kinds of questions I try to analyze in this podcast. Also, if I'm myself how do I often do things that I do not recognize later when I remember them? Where was I? Still I find restrictive the perception that most seem to have, that they are altruists, neurotic, jocund and other ratings. Such...

The Importance of the Healthy Changes and the Way to Achieve them

11/1/2018
Others are constantly seeking change, others are portrayed as proud to remain the same. Others sometimes are identified with one idea and others with the opposite. So, to refine under what conditions we can say that a change is prudent and under which stability is synonymous with character integrity? What is it that makes a difference? In addition, what characteristics do you need to have in order to diagnose when a change is needed and what to understand when a change has to happen in a...

How to Simply Create the Reality You Desire

10/12/2018
How can we get something that we want or find ourselves in a situation that we would much like? As usual, I notice in society a dipole. On the one hand, those who believe that the result is a direct consequence of the effort, and on the other the ones who think they can simply ask for something and the universe will offer it to them. In my opinion, on the one hand, we have an overestimation of the effort and, on the other, a devaluation of it as there is no idea of even the slightest change...

The Process of Maturity

9/27/2018
What happens when you believe in something too much? Most people may think that is necessary to have an "identity." And that the more deeply we have come into it the more proud we must feel. But have we noticed that this unilateral devotion is ultimately the one that leads us to a greater separation? Athletics are a good example, however, identification may not be so distinct. Perhaps without realizing, your conceptions and reactions come from a certain system of ideas. Especially if this...

Hiking Unforgettably all the Majestic Cinque Terre

9/13/2018
Previous August I experienced the magnificence of hiking the Cinque Terre and of visiting all 5 villages. It's a place of outstanding beauty; blue sea, colorful-picturesque houses built on the edge of the rocks, olive trees and vineyards. I felt, thus, the need to describe this experience in detail.

What Do We Mean by Metaphysical and How It Limits Our Perception

9/6/2018
What do we mean by metaphysics today? Does it often give us the impression that it is something outside the natural? For my part, I can see a great admiration on a theoretical level in ancient philosophies, but at the same time a huge ignorance of the overwhelming majority of people for what is, in reality, described there. This is evident from the fact that we seem to be indifferent or even we intimidate elements that have appeared there when they are presented to us without the reference...

How the Change of Attitude Magically Leads to the Appearance of Solutions

8/30/2018
I know well what it's like to be attached to something, to give it all, to think about it all the time, to try with more and more passion, but the results to not be coming; on the contrary, to feel that life totally disappoints you and does not give you what you are entitled to . This disturbs you and makes you angry because you probably think that your mental or physical body effort should produce better results. But does life work this way? And if anyone still says that this is true of...

The Freedom of Being Released from Labels

8/23/2018
How much do the words we use and the labels in general limit us? We are accustomed to using them, and through them we are talking but often we neglect to take into account that the elements with which we have identified them do not necessarily describe the existing situation. Or when we describe ourselves, are we the same as anybody else bearing the same label or is there a reason not to do any action that seems unbalanced in relation to the label? As a Token of Appreciation, you can...

The Encirclement of Fear

7/26/2018
Fear seems to be dominant, from the collective level to the deepest individual. Its "tentacles" appear everywhere, from emotional relationships to the labor market. Its consequences seem to be directly reflected in how we behave, how we make decisions and how we live. What I am debating is how much this is justified. I am concerned that we allow its influence on us and I understand that we can defend ourselves, while at the same time, we can also understand the reasons that is caused and by...
