Living the pain

“Painful, isn’t it? Well, lump it.”

It probably sounds familiar to many and it might sound disheartening said like that, but at the end of the day it is a unavoidable reality.

Back to the roots

Sometimes I go through daily events that I find difficult to understand and I have to make an effort to accept how others get away with things in that 6 lanes highway that they call the ‘real world’.

Circle of fear

 

When we were kids, there was a cartoon on TV called The Feather Snake. I cannot remember what it was all about, only that the feathery snake was not really a snake to me but more like one of those long Chinese paper dragons full of colours, and a little boy was riding it. For some reason my brother was quite scared of that dragon-snake that I used to find fascinating, and I could not help but think of what the reason was of my brother’s fear as I didn’t find it scary at all.

I state

I did not understand either why & how affirmations could work until I generate my own.

Children & grown-ups

Questioning the established reality from my own feelings is a spontaneous exercise that I practise since I can recall, even when some people can find that my approaches are too simplistic & naïve.

Learning by doing

There is a thought that keeps coming back into my life over the years: not knowing what to do, which way to go, who am becoming into, how am I going to end up in that place where I want to be, wherever that is…

Letting go

During our life we go through different schools, jobs, homes, holiday locations, leisure centres, churches, supporting groups, associations… That’s how we get to know the people that we share our time with.

Anchoring

I am driving on the A7 (Autovía del Mediterráneo) from Málaga towards Marbella-Algeciras. Three lanes that run up hill for a bit and then, at one point, very close to the exit to Benalmádena Pueblo, the road hits a flat point where the Mediterranean is right in front on me, slightly to my left, looking peacefully blue, and the Mijas mountain range is on my right, powerful & modest.

Putting the puzzle together

I come back to my photographs, letters, memories & remembered experiences. With each of these pieces I put together a puzzle that keeps making more sense every day & starts looking very alike to the person that I am today.

A vampire's tale

Sometimes I feel small, useless, willing to give up on everything, thinking that there is no solution, that this life and this world stink and there is nothing I can do to make it better. Other times I seem to be strong, confident, full of energy & optimistic, but even then I get involved in situations or hooked by people that drive me to feelings of fear, lack of enthusiasm, deep anger, frustration or complaint.
