  • Exactly three months back, I didn't know my life would have drastically changed. A real turning point when each day is a battle. Life became sour and I believe for a good cause. I still believe that whatever happens happens for a reason.

Three months of self-quest, of reconstruction, of rehabilitation etc. I fell down so many times, cast the people I love aside, hurt myself and been out of control. But most importantly there are precious lessons I have learned, the old me I found, the passion that was hidden and blocked for so long is now free. 🕊

I'm grateful for the big new change in my life. The genuine people around me who love me, support me and honestly care about me. I understand we cannot be in control of everything and still learning to let go. A new journey ahead to live and much more experiences to embrace. 🍃

  • 50 years since mankind stepped foot on the moon giving us a fresh perspective on this place we call home. Not sure Neil and Buzz got much time to soak up the view but that's what we'd have done if we were in their space boots 🚀

  • Tecer compreende as memórias e as estórias que compõem a trama de uma cultura. Envolta em um chilkat, esta mulher Kwakiutl reverbera uma tradição que usou o tecer não só como símbolo da memória ancestral familiar mas, também, como figura de poder. As mantas chilkat, confecionadas em lã, serviam como instrumentos monetários, emblemas de riquezas familiares que eram compartilhadas num sistema complexo de trocas e aquisições denominado Potlatch. Para reforçar a importância de sua ancestralidade e de seu status social, ela combinou sua Chilkat a máscara de um de seus ancestrais já falecido, um poderoso xamã. A roupa também é poder! A foto é de Edward Curtis datada de 1883.

  • Acorda Alice ! 
A Patologia Social e barbárie em que estamos vivendo é uma herança cultural, infelizmente. 
O caráter, a opinião, informação e principalmente a personalidade, fazem cada indivíduo único no Universo.  Parece um livro de Saramago, onde vivemos um ensaio para cegueira - cegueira cultural, cegueira ideológica, cegueira do que é amor, cegueira intelectual, cegueira de autoconfiança, cegueira de convicções.
O radicalismo leva à cegueira e à tristeza de enxergar somente um ponto de vista, o que nos torna ignorantes e pobres intelectualmente. O radicalismo nunca vai permitir o equilíbrio. Os pensamentos contrários deveriam ser complementares, assim como a teoria Yin e Yang, viveríamos em uma homeostase social.
Infelizmente, o egocentrismo nos permite visualizar somente o sofrimento ou a realização individual. As mídias sociais são a bola de Escher ou o retrato de Dorian Gray contemporâneos.
Estamos em 2019 e vivemos a violência e a banalidade do mal da mesma maneira que Hannah Arendt descreveu na década de 60... Será que isso é possível? Seria somente a banalidade do mal por omissão, medo, alienação política e intelectual?
Espero que seja somente um ensaio para cegueira, e não a cegueira permanente.
Eu ainda acredito na humanidade.... mas cada dia está mais difícil 😔

  • how is partial vision a strength? •

human beings can be kind. that is how, i guess. we don't see everything, we don't understand everything, we go through and instill pain, yet, at the end of it all, at least a part of this world is kind, to themselves and one another •

we have the capacity for goodness, that's how. we still believe in hope, we still believe in the possibility of our partial vision to make this world a better place for someone else and yourself as well •

we don't see everything, we can't, but well, whatever we see, whatever we understand, whatever we know, we can be kind, can't we •

  • we are creatures of partial vision. we've always been. complete vision is probably way out of our capacities, and there maybe are ones who've achieved a completion of visibility, i don't know •

i think we don't have the circumference to see anything in its entirety, we're probably not made for that. human beings are people of incredible mental strength and endurance, but part of that strength is in a deeper understanding that we aren't seeing the whole picture, we're not made to, i don't know •

we find ourselves unable to understand what another person is saying, despite it happening in the same world we live in, we find ourselves just unable to. if we saw everything, if we encompassed everything into our thought place, we might break under the pressure, i don't know •

  • there are so many people in this world
so, so many people and no two people are the same, we usually say. no two people are the same and thus you are so unique, you are one of a kind, we tell ourselves and each other so much, and that is true, quite •

but, •

there are so many people in this world
so, so many people and in many ways we're the same, you know, more than we'd imagine. alike is probably a better word. our grief is the same/alike, our pain is the same/alike, our scars are the same/alike, our worlds are the same/alike •

but, •

we see them differently so differently, it's crazy. we see someone going through the same kind of grief, but we'll never fully understand neither will they fully understand ours, but here we are, among people who see the same world but not like us. it's the same world, with the same scars, but different eyes, and the eyes, the eyes change everything •

  • “How much time have you already spent worrying, instead of doing something that you love?” -ZeFrank @zezeiamze⠀
⠀ ⠀
By the time you remove all of the days you will spend working, eating, sleeping, and the other necessities of life, you will have about 2,740 days left in your lifetime in which to live your joy.  This is beautifully illustrated in jelly beans here:  https://gonzal.es/2740days.⠀
⠀ ⠀
Don’t despair over this seemingly small amount of time. Ask a parent about the time between their infant child’s tiny hands first grasping their finger, and when that child gets ready to leave their home. Ask a teacher who sees a lifetime of young minds passing through their doors, then taking the wisdom they’ve imparted into the world beyond. Ask anyone who has held someone they love in their embrace, or held a loved one’s hand as they draw their last breath. Fleeting as that time might seem, 2,740 days are plenty to live a full and incredible life.⠀
⠀ ⠀
As we’re now more than halfway through 2019, don’t wait. Don’t say “tomorrow.” Don’t say, “I’ll start in the New Year.” You still have 165 more days before then. 165 more jelly beans. 165 lifetimes to live. 165 eternities to change your world. How many people could you tell that you love them, that you appreciate them, that your world is better with them in it, in that time? How could you become more of the person someone says those things to?⠀

  • Há 50 anos o homem pisava a lua 🌒 Numa aventura que levou o Apólo 11 numa magnífica jornada pelo desconhecido. Poucos sabem mas foram necessárias 400000 pessoas para que este objetivo se concretizasse desde engenheiros a pessoas que coseram os fatos herméticos! Os computadores 💻 usados na altura eram uma tecnologia avançada mas hoje temos na nossa mão tecnologia ainda mais avançada do que a usada na época 📱 Todo o avanço tecnológico advindo desta #spacerace levou-nos hoje a ter acesso a maior e melhor tecnologia. Quão bom seria que a humanidade se volta-se a focar neste tipo de competitividade em vez de sustentar conflitos... quão longe já teríamos chegado se comunicássemos melhor? 🤔  #nasa🚀 #spacex #moon #neuropulse #inovation #humankind

  • Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Balak called "Not Reckoned Among the Nations". You can read it in full here: https://bit.ly/2JPC7bv and download the accompanying Family Edition here: https://bit.ly/32ykyFv. #ShabbatShalom

There are nations with many religions: multicultural Britain is one among many. There are religions governing many nations: #Christianity and #Islam are obvious examples. Only in the case of #Judaism is there a one-to-one correlation between #religion and #nationhood. Without #Judaism there would be nothing (except #antisemitism) to connect #Jews across the world. And without the #Jewish nation Judaism would cease to be what it has always been, the #faith of a people bound by a bond of collective #responsibility to one another and to #God. Bilaam was right. The #Jewish people really are unique.

Nothing therefore could be more mistaken than to define #Jewishness as a mere #ethnicity. If ethnicity is a form of culture, then Jews are not one ethnicity but many. In #Israel, Jews are a walking lexicon of almost every #ethnicity under the sun. If ethnicity is another word for race, then conversion to #Judaism would be impossible (you cannot convert to become Caucasian; you cannot change your race at will). What makes #Jews “a nation dwelling alone, not reckoned among the nations,” is that their #nationhood is not a matter of #geography, #politics or #ethnicity. It is a matter of religious vocation as God’s covenant partners, summoned to be a living example of a nation among the nations made distinctive by its faith and way of life. Lose that and we lose the one thing that was and remains the source of our singular contribution to the heritage of #humankind. When we forget this, sadly, #God arranges for people like Bilaam to remind us otherwise. We should not need such reminding.
