Ancient wisdom, same beings.

FRANÇAIS PAGE 2

Let’s now take my previous article words to articulate the next subjects that we will be talking about and introduce the next article we will be publishing on this website.

We heard, in life, there is two main guidelines :

  • My life is my own and I should make the most of it.
  • I cannot exist without others.

There’s this duality between the two. How can I be thoughtful enough towards myself without being selfish? Is being selfish bad? How can I benefit from others without taking up all the space I have? Is working hard compatible with being conscious of what I do?

We always hear “do it better than your own self”, “always work hard”… But, what if letting space in our daily life could actually make us more productive and aware of our own personal road?

We are meant to feel present, conscious and serene at all times. On the contrario of what we can hear on the mainstream medias, being overbooked is not ok, letting society or even someone else decide about your life for yourself isn’t normal, each of us has a specific way of apprehending life. What is happening to others isn’t necessarily supposed to happen to me.

I would say : always be at your best, part time. Learn to listen to yourself and to accept the moments where you need to rest. Enjoy resting, and preserve yourself for that working time. 

We won’t be able to live in the world without learning first how to live by ourselves. The qualities that we would love to have are already inside us, but need to be cultivated in those moments where we are alone. Those moments are that opportunity to be patient and to let go.

The more I travel, the more I come across ancient wisdom. That one, which generally comes from Asia, who teaches you to take time to meditate, take care of your body and soul and to listen to your instinct. This wisdom that leads me to take a step back from society.

Thanks to the time I take for myself, at least 5 minutes a day, I can be more present for everything else that is needed from me. The regularity counts, not the time you take for it. It’s not a discipline but instead a time to charge the batteries to their full potential.

A little change in my habits that help everyday to be a better “me”. I stopped eating meat, little by little stopped watching TV, not any loan is threatening me anymore, my anxieties fade away… In short, I move away from society and the problems of the world only touch me less and less.

Problem is, the miracle solution do not exist, everything takes time. I would like to show how necessary it is for our planet on one hand yes but also on the other hand for our own sake to take care of us.

But yes, we indeed are all connected. We wouldn’t exist without others to witness it and live beside us. It would be difficult to work by our own for example, we will always need

the support and help from others to expand our vision, even if that help comes from a simple client. As said here on my first article, we all need each other. 

It may seem paradoxical but because we take time for ourselves a little bit everyday, we are more receptive to what life can offer us, and therefore, to others around us. 

Even scientific say it now. We are inter-connected beings living in a magnetic field that connects us all. If I’m good, my neighbour will be good as well. Even in psychology. But no need to study to know this. When I smile, my neighbour will want to smile as well. If I’m in a bad day, it’s going to be hard for me to make a child smile. It’s important to be its own example, and by being it to show the way to those in need.

Little by little, I’ve come to learn about this ancient wisdom. I’ve come to learn that meditation is good for you. Yoga will help you dedicate yourself to your life. Being vegetarian opens up your eyes. Ayurveda may be millenary old, it takes you back to the root of our civilisations and wellbeing …

In short, in order to be available enough for others and the world, be thoughtful and do good where you go, you have to be that way with yourself. Be able to listen to yourself means to be able to listen the world around us.

All those are some of the topics we will be talking about for the launching of this website. Having always in mind cultivating listening, cultivating this magic I’m talking about.

So be sure to stay tuned.

More soon.

Be your best self for your own self

FRANÇAIS PAGE 2

In our world today, we always have to be at our best, to say nice things, to do everything we can to please everyone around us and to show how better we are better compared to our competitor.

The problem is, we aren’t able to listen anymore. We’ve accepted the fact that we have to talk to prove ourselves. But the more we try to prove ourselves to others, the more we stop believing in us. Other people’s opinion is becoming far more important than our own. 

But who is living our life but us?

The more I try to tell everyone how my life is going, what thing I should or shouldn’t do, the new habits I have that I’m trying to get used to, the more I find myself caught up in this “do it better than anyone else” motto that we all seem to share.

Instead of showing off and proving everyone our own value.

Instead of trying to catch the eye of the person in front of you.

Instead of explaining to everyone how good you are.

Instead of trying to sell yourself to your next date or boss.

We should start by living our best life for our own self.

Listen, always. Learn to shut up and let things happen.

We can be able to let space for things that indeed will be uncertain but far more right. We should always try to let ourselves discover the unknown. That unknown who knows how to surprise ourselves and show us “beyond”.

Beyond the unknown, beyond dreams and beyond all human perception.

Barriers do exist but in the blink of eye, in the next right moment, when you let yourself be, they are pushed back and rearranged.

Listen, let go in the moment, articulating the fewer words possible to let space for the purity of the moment, of the words that compose it.

By taking up all the space and time, we prevent ourselves from discovering the magic of life, the one that will show you the next step to take, the one that is made of peace.

Again, life is magical. And that magic comes from those moments where you accept to receive.

To be continued …

Love,

Ben

New vision of the famous Covid-19

FRANÇAIS PAGE 2

4 minutes reading

So, since everyone around here is talking about it, I guess we’re continuing on that subject as well, the now famous 2019-nC0V.

Yes I agree with some of you, you can freak out a little. Some things don’t add up. Yes, if you think about it there’s some crazy numbers behind it. Almost 5000 people contaminated, about 110 deaths, multiple people contaminated in the world in just a few weeks etc…

Ok, there’s no point in arguing about numbers. They’re facts.

But what if you could forget them and move your focus on something else?

Unfortunately, governments have political and economical reasons for you to be anxious. They want you to be sick as well. In order to buy what they intended for us to buy. It’s sad to say it but it’s true.

Does anyone really think that the surgical masks are going to protect us? Do you really think that this Corona virus would be so annoyed by you wearing it that it would not even try to get into your system?

As a matter of fact, scientists already know that those masks won’t protect you from any virus. Instead, they’re useful when you’re sick and you don’t want people near you to be contaminated as well. “It’s efficiency isn’t demonstrated at all when you wear it and you’re not sick.”

Nevertheless, everyone wants to have one.

It’s crazy how here in France everyone went to our pharmacies to buy them. They’re sold out. Which is pretty crazy when you think about it. 

Nobody is anxious about the flu when it comes in the winter. Nobody is anxious about people even dying from hunger right now when you’re reading this.

It’s ok, we’re used to it.

Well, if you’re used to it, then just try and live your life to the fullest everyday. Even if there’s some crazy virus threatening to spread in the whole world.

Did you notice that the Chinese government decided to build in just a few days hospitals that would bear twice the capacity of everyone contaminated?

They did so in Wuhan, the epicentre of this crazy new year psychosis. 

I can’t help but think that they already know how much, where and who is going to be contaminated next. It wouldn’t be the first time a virus would be created by men. Think of the HIV for example. Which, by the way, earn ridiculous amount of money to the health industry.

The problem is, the more you get anxious, the more you’re likely to be sick. I heard that since the corona virus started, the percentage of people having cancer increased significantly.

Don’t you know that the more you’re anxious, the more you’re likely to get cancer? It’s proven now, cancer comes from anxiety. And everyone knows that cancer is earning loads and loads of money to the health industry, and therefore to governments.

It’s all related to our point of view. If you look at something, it won’t have the same shape as if you look at it from a different angle. And this can be an image to translate other things such as sickness since we’re talking about it.

And that’s exactly what I’m trying to do, trying to change your point of view on the subject.

Because I want you to be happy and to live your life to the fullest. It’s really important for you and for all of us.

I once heard about a women who has cancer. She talked about it like I never heard before. She said that the most beautiful way to live in this world is to live without fear. Just live, live happily. Because when you die, there is to time for living.

She said : “I have cancer. I’m happy. And I love my cancer. It taught me how to live life. I love my cancer very much. It’s mine!” 

Only through hardships will you be able to grow. Only through them, will you see life from a different perspective.

Of course I’m not saying everyone should be sick to understand the meaning of life. I’m just saying that you can beat every virus, sickness, hardship, people … just by being positive.

Only if you would just be happy to be alive.

I took this image to talk about this because I think in life, there is time to be, time to have fun, time to grow, time to learn and also time to be still. To accept that sometimes life needs a little rest. 

It might look dead but maybe in the inside it is just resting and waiting for the sun to shine again. So that life would show us how to be patient and how to accept what it can teach us. It is frozen indeed, but in just a few weeks, water will flow again and will show us how that time was valuable.

It might be easy to say I know. But just give yourself some time. And try a little more everyday to live life from a different perspective.

And don’t forget that everything that comes into your system will be digested and you will take all the ingredients that are in it, even if you didn’t want to.

And of course when I’m saying this, I mean everything you eat will be digested indeed but I’m also talking about what you hear, what you watch, what you do …

Everything that comes in contact with you will have an effect on you.

So be wise and choose what is best for you. And no one won’t ever be able to tell it better than you.
