Activism & Frustration

(Leer este post en Español)

We all have friends who passionately stand for a cause. They even leave their rest for later or stop doing things they have to do in order to work for that cause. I have friend like that too! I have a friend Moni: She posts and motivates her friends to try the vegan lifestyle. Another friend, Corinne: She tries to make people get aware and interested in the artistic work of women who paint, write, compose and that have been minimized by history. Another friend, Silvia: She invites people to join protesting marches against corrupt politicians or against social injustices. I can list more friends as well, but unfortunately there are not that many.

Activismo y Frustración

(Read this post in English here)

Todos tenemos amigos que defienden con pasión una causa. Inclusive dejan de descansar o hacer cosas que tienen que hacer para poder trabajar por esa causa. Así yo tengo una amiga Moni: postea y motiva a que sus amigos intenten la vida vegana. Otra amiga, Corinne: trata de que la gente se interese más por la labor artística de mujeres que pintan, escriben, componen y han sido minimizadas por la historia. Una amiga más, Silvia: Invita a la gente a que se sume a las marchas de protesta en contra de los políticos corruptos o en contra de injusticias sociales. Puedo enlistar más amigos así, aunque desafortunadamente no son tantos. Continue reading

(Read this post in English)

Hace 2 semanas que escribía en un blog previo, que quería ser capaz de adentrarme en la raiz de por qué me empequeñezco en algunas situaciones y también de mi deseo de conectarme con otras personas de una manera más profunda. También escribí que tenía un gran deseo de conocer a Kathleen en su mundo. Por estos dos deseos, decidí pasar una semana en el México rural, en el santuario sustentable de Soulfullheart.

Enpequeñeciendome

(Read this post in English here)

Llego justo a tiempo de la estación de autobuses a mi clase de Zumba que está a punto de comenzar: ¡Sé feliz! ¡Inspira! ¡Motiva! Soy tan bueno en eso, me repito a mí mismo. Cuando bailo, soy un verdadero líder, me transformo en una versión moderna de He-Man bailarín con más ropa y el cabello menos rubio. Pero al igual que él, quizá tenga a un cobarde príncipe Adam dentro de mí (Sin albur, ¡je je!). “¡Buenos días señoras! la clase va a empezar! ¡Es hora de bailar, Azúcar!Continue reading

I arrive just on-time from the bus station into my Zumba class that is about to start: Be happy! Inspire! Motivate! I’m so good at it, I repeat to myself. When I dance, I am a true leader, I transform myself like a Modern version of Dancing He-Man with more clothes and less blond hair. But just like him, I might have a coward Prince Adam inside me (No double sense, he he!). “Good morning ladies, Class is starting! Let’s dance, azúcar!

Even with the intention of staying only a week, there is so much to remember to take with you physically in preparation for the off-grid, rural lifestyle. I held some concern that I would have to readjust after being away from it for 9 months and that it might be challenging to jump right back in.

Of course this happened on several levels since the SoulFullHeart Sanctuary is not just a physical existence. Even for the person who is not choosing to be emotionally or spiritually conscious, it wakens something on the…
