You are made of stars…. Literally.

I decided to honor and reverence this statement, by making it the title and the soul of my blog. Not only because literally and scientifically, we REALLY are made of stardust. The whole Universe, is the result of the explosion of a star. This fact fascinates me, not only because of it´s marvellous scientific story,…

El precio de ser vulnerable

El ser humano es vulnerable por naturaleza, pero nos cuesta aceptarlo. La vulnerabilidad no es algo bien visto en la sociedad actual, que premia a los fuertes, a la perfección y a estándares ideales de belleza y comportamiento. Sentirnos expuestos, es algo que la mayoría de nosotros intentamos evitar a toda costa. ¿Porqué nos es…

Make silence a new habit to improve your life

Silence is magical. It is regarded as one of the highest faculties of wise men, yet in the modern world we seem to be giving silence not enough importance as it deserves. What does it bring, to remind silent for few minutes a day? James Allen, one of the pioneers on the field of Self-Development…

Common beliefs about Money

It´s Monday, 6:00 A.M. You wake up still on a zombie state. You start to move towards your day with the same routine: Get in the shower, get dressed, maybe get some breakfast if time allows and run out of the house to go to work, take your kids to school. Then you take the…
