Trance – Formation – Full Movie

Another amazing movie/documentary from Max Igan. Informative, inspirational and challenging. definitelly worth to stop and watch if even you can only afford any time at all to be present, look around and reconsider what your views in life are. Very good.

The World Tomorrow, Russia TV

Is always good to hear news from my favourite controversial hero still alive and kicking  Mr Julian Assange and even greater to know that  has not stop activities in unveiling current affairs that pertain us all for a better world tomorrow. This video is fresh on the web today and worth sharing it immediately.

The Alchemist – Book by Paulo Coelho

Is hard to find the time to read a book these days besides the fact that the internet distances us from reading actual books as we find so much information on anything at the click of a word, there are anyhow, those times when our minds become so agitated with speed of events that we really need to slow down and take our imagination somewhere else, to somebody else’s story perhaps or a story that can teach us new lessons outside from our personal reality and there’s where this book is key to read. I have read several books by Paulo Coelho but ironically despite I heard a lot of good reviews about it, never read this his best seller; I just finished on the train home last night.

I have to say honestly, that I expected a more transcendental book, a more elaborated plot or I really don’t know what I did expect but instead I found this enchanting simple journey through imagination on a boy’s pilgrimage and could not stop reading it to its end in just few days. It is so gentle the way his fictional story merges with profound analysis and real inspirational wisdom in its quotes that its lessons seem to get embedded in your mind like transforming iron thoughts for gold ones as if by the tuition of an expertise or master teacher and then you know, you too have met the alchemist, you too are looking for a treasure and you too want to find it… Excellent!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

* “It is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting”

*“Treason is a blow that comes unexpectedly. If you know your heart well, it will never be able to do that to you. Because you’ll know its dreams and wishes, and will know how to deal with them

*”When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.

*“If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise,” said the seer. “If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur.”

*”There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

*“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

Will Smith seems to love it too 🙂

Guru in the Hot Chair~ Alan Watts 1915-1973

Wish anyone make time to watch this video for it not only fly you high through the beauty of the most majestic landscapes you probably never have the physical experience to go to but on top of it, as a cherry on its top, here you will also hear the privilege of a talk by Alan Watts; the English writer and philosopher who I have in the hot chair this month eager to get to know more of his works and philosophy; specially his ZEN School.

Long after his death, his powerful analysis’ talks resonate till today with the same relevance as when he gave them. He was a brave pioneer speaker introducing Eastern philosophy to the west in the 60’s and as I’ve heard a few of his talks today, he was very profound, realistic yet funny; anything but boring my dear…

Easter is a good time to reflect on one’s own path and in the irrelevance of any manipulative religion among the enjoyment of our well deserved break and holiday. The video speaks volumes on its own… and if not for the talk, the sumptuous beauty of our own wild flight through nature in this video will bring such a liberating touch of peaceful harmony to the core of your soul that will make your mind fly in realisations and answers you didn’t think were there… inside your own mind…. Appreciate -^-
