There are Reasons to Believe in a Better World

I wish there would be more commercials like this one in the world.

In the last years, We have been bombarded with advertising, that makes us feel like we are missing something, making us feel we need to have their product, making women feel that we need to be as slim as the models they show on the commercials. All this because people in the commercials seem to be happy, and that make us feel that if we are not like them or if we don’t have what they have then we can’t be happy.

There is also the news that tell us most of the times that there are no good news in the world, that everything is wrong and that we live in a world that is getting worst every day.

Then I saw this commercial and it made feel good about the media. I am not sure if it made me want to buy a Coke, but it definitely made me believe that it could be someone in the media that can show us how the world really is: a world with love.

But love is not in the news, there are no news saying that a mother gives his son a kiss before he goes to school, or that she made his lunch with love. There are few news about all the help that is giving everyday in every corner of the world.

Oasis’ song is also inspiring teeling us to believe in ourselves instead of believeing in everything others say. I believe this video make us feel good and when we feel good it means we are connected with God, as Dr. Dyer says feel good equals feel God.

I hope you also have many reasons to believe in a better word
God Bless You

Anger takes you away from the Present Moment

“The most important thing we miss when we are mad is the present moment.”

Have you ever observed a child in the moment when he is really upset, he does not listen to us or to anybody.

Yesterday my oldest son was upset, and I was trying to talk to him asking him to pay attention, when my youngest son told me:

” He is not listening now that he is angry, it happens to me when I am upset too”

And it is true, when we are angry or upset, we are having in our minds thoughts about what happened, we are having thoughts about the past, trying to justify us and trying to convince us that the other person is wrong

Sometimes, we are having thoughts from the future, thinking about what we would do to that person or what are we going to do about the situation in the future.

All these thoughts are ego justifications; the ego does it because is trying to convince us that we are the ones that are right, therefore making the others wrong. The ego does this in order to distract us from the most important thing in our lives: The Present Moment.

This moment is also called ” The Present”, because it is a gift from God, and it is given to us in every breath we take, in every instant we are alive.

Therefore the secret is to be present, because in the present moment there is no place for anger, so if we know this, next time we are mad, it is possible that we could be able to return to the present, and in that moment we will realize, that the anger is only feeding us with thoughts from the past or the future.

If we commit to make an effort to be present most of the times during the day, then we will not only get to reduce the times we get mad, we will be living the life we were meant to live.

God Bless You
