Share what you are passionate about

You’d be surprised how emotional it can be to hear someone speak with passion. Have you ever had that opportunity? If you don’t remember any, you haven’t. These are things you don’t forget. You may have been able to forget some of the content, but not what it made you feel. The subject matter is not really relevant if the person was speaking from the heart; it can make you fall in love with anything. That’s the power of feelings and words. There are few things that give me more satisfaction than talking about what makes me feel alive, awake, excited, full of curiosity and energy. That which empowers me, gives me fire and drives me on the days when I feel most lost. Personally, I find great joy in sharing my emotions for nature, for the conservation of the environment and its knowledge; it gives me life to know…

Make suffering your best lesson

When you love something with your heart, you always have to learn to deal with the fear of losing it. That strong connection once established doesn’t come cheap, you pay a high emotional price. I remember myself as a child reading books about endangered animals like the black vulture, the monk seal, the bearded vulture or the Iberian lynx. The last pages of those books were accompanied by invitations to help, you could see pictures of people working for their conservation. I was lost in my imagination then, dreaming that I was also one of them and dedicated myself body and soul to protecting these wonderful creatures. I also remember the helplessness I felt on many occasions, my fear that they would disappear and be forgotten, that I would not have had time to recognize their greatness as it should. As a result of the accumulation of these readings, I…

Always accompanied: key to dealing with humanity’s problems

When we face problems of colossal size such as climate change, the fight against social inequalities or the defence of human rights, one must have an integrity worthy of admiration. Why? Because I do not yet know anyone who finds it easy to assimilate the worrying situation we are in, who wants to involve himself in it and who does not pay a certain price by carrying this weight on his shoulders. It is said that an African proverb says “if you want to go fast walk alone, if you want to go far go with others”, and I firmly believe in the message it aims to convey. If we think about it coldly, no matter how much we want to and how powerful a human being can become convinced of a good cause, our capacity for action is much more limited if we intend to be lonely warriors. This…

Love of nature

As a nature-loving person, I used to be ashamed of my species. I thought that human beings were the worst form of life on this planet and a condemnation of it. He was one of those who only saw the world tinted black, even though there had always been so much light around him. Because in the end your eyes see only what you want to see. I was not yet aware that my attitude only made the problem worse. It took me a long time to understand that, however much we have been taught otherwise, this is not a world of good and bad. It’s a world of people. People with struggles, overcoming and fears, but also with stories, joys and dreams. Lives that deserve to be shared and from which there is always something to learn. My need to point out culprits in the face of environmental deterioration…

Black Friday

He really has a lot in black, it seems like the name was put there on purpose. They say that the term originated in Philadelphia because of the large mass of people who came to shop the day after Thanksgiving and because the numbers in the stores “went from red to black” because of the huge purchases on that day. However, I think the black of Black Friday is much more striking in other ways, much more so in the consequences of the seemingly harmless act of consumption. Why is Black Friday so black? Empty. Black hole. Destruction. These are some terms in which I find a great similarity for what I consider the identity of Black Friday. Three qualifiers, three world problems. I’m going to explain one by one: us, the others and nature. Empty: us We have too much stuff. Now even a new business has started to…

Look more to the sky

And less on the floor, I might add. If you look down the street, almost everyone is looking at the ground! It seems to be fashionable to avoid looking into our eyes and instead shelter the sight on our feet. Not that I have anything against the feet or the ground, but I have found that the more I look up and the less I look down, the better I feel. And how good does it feel to look at the sky? I’m sure that psychologically and physiologically there must be a reason behind this, and I sense that I’m not the only one it’s happening to. It’s possible that, unconsciously, we create an individual refuge by looking at the ground. I interpret this as a sign of insecurity and vulnerability, at least in my own experience, I have found that when I look at the ground a lot it…

What I learned from sleeping on the street

Cold in the bones. We’ve all heard that expression sometime in our lives. However, very few of us can say, fortunately, that we have experienced it in our bodies. It was a day in early December. Although we often hear that the cold is no longer what it used to be, that night promised not to let the proud winter down. That evening I attended an event whose aim was to bring people closer to the problems of the homeless, to claim their rights and to give them a voice. The reason I attended, more than a deep empathy for our most forgotten loved ones, was selfish. Personally, I am very attracted to new experiences. Whenever I have an opportunity to learn something new or to test myself I don’t let it go. This time I wanted to approach the situation of these people that was so unfamiliar to me.…

Why should you listen to podcasts?

I have to admit that when I propose or lead with something, there is no stopping me. Considering how impulsive and intense I am, in the case of podcasts it was not going to be less. Although my father began to try to motivate me to listen to them some time ago, claiming that they were useful for learning English, it wasn’t until I felt the need and curiosity for myself that I decided to open this door to learning. Since then, they have not ceased to be present in my daily routine and are my faithful companions wherever I go. It’s very unlikely that you don’t like podcasts Maybe you’ve never heard of podcasts before. Maybe you’ve tried a few, often about languages, and haven’t taken them up again. You may also not have been directly convinced by the experience. Let me tell you that you should try it…

Why Spreading Consciousness and a dandelion?

All this is also briefly commented in the section I write about why I decided to create a website and I talk a little bit more about myself. The name of my page is obviously related to the objective of the page: to spread a more conscious lifestyle with the rest of the people and living beings and to encourage reconnection and respect for nature. But it would be useless to inform and give reasons to live a closer life with the natural environment when at an inner level there is no previous work, both in the person who transmits and in the receivers. The message will reach more easily those who have already travelled a certain distance on the path of self-knowledge. This is why I am so interested in spiritual issues and personal growth. In order to understand the importance of nature in ourselves and in our own…

Learning to trust

The people. Huge worlds of infinite possibilities. So different and yet so similar. Different in appearance, identical in truth. They seem to be trained to detect these superfluous external disparities between them so that at the slightest hint they turn around and go another way. Why have we learned to make such quick judgements about others? Why has the rule become mistrust? It seems that we are in an unconscious but constant state of alert. We are afraid of being hurt, we are afraid of suffering. This makes it harder for us to trust, to show our most vulnerable side, the side that really makes us human. They say that we increasingly lack the ability to establish quality relationships. I don’t think I’m too disoriented in pointing back to the same source. Fear. That destroyer of trust, of human bonds, of the world in general. The vast majority of us…
