>Weekend in Miami

>Off to Miami tonight. Looong weekend with cousins.
Laif is gud. Enjoy!



>Perfect Sunset

Have you ever experienced a perfect sunset?
Last January I took this picture. It seems as if the ship is carrying the Sun elsewhere…Sunsets are one of the things why I believe that the best things in life are free.
When was your last perfect sunset?

>Try Again

If you believe in what you do…move to the right.
…I don´t mean to say that luck is a consequence of hard work. If you try hard and something good comes out, be grateful.



>Corporate Piglitics

Puck Forporate politics. Sacrificing a larger good for a smaller (temporary one) is love incomplete. True love is not solicited.

be gud. live laif.

>Love for money


Hugh Macleod is an inspiring individual. Not that I want to become a cartoonist or imitate him (he´s too good for that) but now I don´t just write my ideas and put them on t-shirts. I also draw them (the whole visual thinking concept is very ¨me¨ too).

So…here´s my statement about love for money…love incomplete.

Remember…enjoy life.

>What is missing

Months ago I drew my vision of incompleteness. Listening to Jack Johnson this morning, decided to share it. Laif is gud.

Looking for a place to link the word ¨incompleteness¨ to, I came across this. Turns out a scientist by the name of Kurt Gödel said this in 1931:

If an axiomatic system can be proven to be consistent and complete from within itself, then it is inconsistent.

I´ll take it to everyday life, with the excuse of Mr. Gödel:
You do, say, feel etc. with your own set of beliefs. In order to prove it consistent and complete you need to use a more consistent set of beliefs than that of yours. In order for that set of beliefs to be convincing, its consistency must have been proven without using yours.
ERGO, since love is been proven consistent by itself, why not place it as our core value?

Time here to mention the great way in which Collective Soul expresses it in their song ¨Listen¨.

Oprah Winfrey nails it as well: “I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.”

In your opinion, what is missing in the world to make ourselves complete (i.e. achieve our full potential)?

Rather ¨deep¨ morning. 😉

Laif is gud. Cheers,

>Thought of the Day – The life you love

>I´m thinking today: loving the life you don´t have is a big source of unhappiness.

I guess this is another way of saying ¨Love the life you live, live the life you love.¨ But I wonder: why do we, humans, so many times end up confused and unhappy with our reality? I think we have been told too many lies. Lies about being a perfect human being (Hitler), lies about being someone you´re not or go to hell (oppressive ways of understanding Religion), lies about the sources of poverty (21st century Socialism in the form of utopian projects of politicians like Hugo Chávez, Evo Morales, José Luís Rodríguez Zapatero…to name a few).

Our full potential resides not in living a utopian life but in getting the most out of our current reality.

Yeah, pretty obvious. But time and again we get stuck.

What are the sources of unhappiness in your life?
