Where Does Stress Come From?
I remember many times when I have been typing on my computer something for school or work, focused on one task, while realizing that a little part of my mind is elsewhere, seeking for the next task or hurrying up because time is short and I need to make the best out of it.

How to accept others just as they are?
I want to base this topic on the phrase that says: "the more you need someone to change to accept them as they are, the more you need to explore inside yourself to see what is missing." That phrase was a sudden impulse that I had and shared on my social media. After that, I received several questions about it in private messages from people wanting to understand more what I meant by that and how to achieve it. I want to confess that this issue touches me personally. In the pa

Pain and Suffering: Purpose and 4 Steps to Transcend Them
The other day I ran into a friend whom I had not seen for a long time.

While there are many reasons that she mentioned, the most important seems to have been that she has begun to discover who she truly is, or at least that she has started a process for it. In her relationship, during the more than 10 years of it, she has been getting

These simply represent tasks that can wait a little longer and that you could do later. With the mentality that I try to apply in my day-to-day to be present and observe myself, a sudden impulse came to me. What do I gain from having a few emails without working? How does it make me feel that and where else does
Mental Presence: The Prelude to Spiritual Presence
A few days ago, one of my clients was wondering about how to stay more present, and whether it actually was important. As we dug deeper into his thinking, we figured out that what prevented him from being more often in the moment was nothing more than the past taking over the present. There was even a self-acknowledgment of it being "cruel" from his own mind to do that, as many of the thoughts were either related to regret, resentment, or other typical sources of suffering. T
STOP Chasing What's Already Within You!
How many times do we go about our day looking for something to fulfill us, even with a sense of urgency, as if failure will knock at our door if we do not meet this world's (and our) expectations? When we apply the same mentality, day after day, it simply becomes our way of living. We rarely stop for a second to think, really, what is it that we are chasing? The truth is that whatever we chase, cannot be obtained from WITHOUT, but only from WITHIN. If we truly believe that wh
