Life can be better when you practice THE SCIENCE OF THE OBVIOUS. One day my younger sister Carla told me that the father of her boyfriend back then was a doctor who already had 3 heart attack and he was very over weight. Well he was the guy who was trying to give my family medical advice. Another time my older sister Kathy decided to take my little niece to her private clinic because she had a cold for too long. It end up with weeks of hospital and heavy drugs according to them she had a weird Chinese virus. She was so bad they had to take her to the capital city to a main public hospital. The doctors couldn't believe the paranoia of the clinic that almost killed her and my sister had to pay a huge sorry-we-almost-killed-your-daughter bill. When I was a student in highschool a group of classmates invited us to a BBQ, I ate a lot and they kept laughing at me and I didn't understood why. Weeks later we found out that they killed a dog and experimented with us. Now one of them is a doctor. I don't know you guys but I HAD ENOUGH OF THAT. I took responsibility for my health long ago. Everybody knows that fruits and vegetables and sports lead to a healthy lifestyle. You don't need to give up anything just increase the amount of that. So no more excuses for me and lets get to enjoy life and love ourselves. You don't know where to start? Whatever is fun for you, do you like fruits? well have lots of them, do you like salads, vegetables soup? enjoy them. One hour of sport a day: walking, cycling, yoga, running, swimming, pilates, dancing, tennis, soccer, anything, dancing, playing with the kids just move freely like a happy kid!! Do you want it to work forever? so do it gentle, go soft, your goal is to train everyday, so make it simple, fun and happy, then you will have a habit that will make you stronger forever, that's the goal. And please BREATH & DRINK WATER. Confucius: If you think it's easy or you think it's complicated, both assumptions are right. You are taking a choice. Beleza! 📸@annastephenss

Life feels better when we drive our lives. 1) I was thinking that if we want to change the world we have to change ourselves, right? if we are connected to our family, whatever change we want them to have we should literally don't say anything and just make that change in ourselves. That will inevitably have an impact around you sooner or later and any sign of something you dislike in the people that you love the most is a sign to change that in yourself. You are responsible for them and any harm you do to yourself you are also doing that to everybody you love, and also the world. Everything you are and do has an impact around you and the world. 2) I was interviewing Amrit, the yoga instructor I'm volunteering for, and he tried to answer my question about the meaning of life. He said that the point of life is to become a point, a reference, an anchor for other people. I had the idea of rol models before that I think it is important in life. Apparently for me, we humans define ourselves looking at other people and selecting who we are and we are not. People that we admire give us a reference to know ourselves better and follow their guidance like a star for a sailor. So then when we are in the journey of life following our stars, we realize that the journey itself it's more important than the destination and we also have the potential of becoming a destination, a reference for others. @annastephenss 📸 Much love!

Life is better for me when I meditate. Today with @annastephenss 📸 we were talking about how we humans consider nature like something that doesn't include us. Nature is good but humans are bad, it is like we always need to have an evil enemy. I consider vital to remember that we are part of nature, there are also humans that sing, that bring peace with their power, that support our evolution with acts of love and kindness. Unconsciously as a culture, the majority of us are disconnected from who we really are. I believe we are beautiful and highly developed miracles of creation. I always feel the need of telling to a vagabond on the street that is asking me for money "you are a miracle of God, I can give you so much solutions but you are making the wrong question. I wish you could see the world with my eyes and see how powerful, unique and incredible you are. Someone made you believe you are not powerful, you are under the spell of fear begging for energy but you are that energy. But then I remember the saying of my master "never give your advice if they are not asking for it". What if maybe we don't have the answers? what if maybe I have to surrender now and trust the collective consciousness, trust nature, trust my nature? Are we maybe being arrogant? what if maybe there is a higher consciousness trying to tell us something and we keep neglecting? Let's feel the love of creation enter on us with every breath and let the power of the sun remind us that we are also powerful, peaceful, beautiful and eternal.

Andrei Tarkovsky tribute take two. Life is better when you understand yin and yang. As a man I like the simplicity of the yang stillness but also appreciate the feminine yin music and constant change of life. There is not good or evil, everything can be good or bad. Fire can be good or bad, water can be good or bad depending on who's the observer. We define things like death or cold as bad because previous experiences of pain, but it has to do more with radical change and lack of balance. As any yoga student learn, going slow everyday is more efficient and pleasant than one day of radical exercise and unnecessary suffering. Bad weather people say when it rains, for me and my family, because we are from the Atacama (the driest desert in the world located in Chile) a rainy day is great weather, awesome news! the desert will be cover with colorful flowers this spring we celebrate. Only a few people know what's death about or life. I'm wondering what will happen when people will realize that we are all already spirits, hanging out in the physical world, like kids snorkeling in the ocean. Every time we go to sleep is like going to the surface for fresh air. The less we rest the most dizzy and inefficient we become, no matter how much coffee you drink you will need to reconnect yourself with your spirit, sleeping, laughing, having fun, hanging out in nature, sports and meditation are the best ways I know to get energy. Men and women, cold and hot, music and silence, day and night, left and right, fear and trust, structure and destruction, water and fire, inhale and exhale, positive and negative, English and French, German and Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, life and death, Kairos and Chronos, body and soul, electrons and protons are two poles of the same planet/atom. From one side to the other they conduct/channel energy/life ina an infinite feedback like the dance of our planet around the sun. Both poles also have internal polarities and can switch or recreates themselves in any other way. What a wonderful cosmos.
