Silence does not exist: it is the song of birds!

In the big cities there is no more silence and noise pollution has become daily. We often use music to isolate ourselves from the surrounding world, full of noise and chaos. In fact, in addition to giving emotions (often deriving from its musical genre), music has a therapeutic function.

Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.

Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.

But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …

Our libraries: how to choose books

littlelibrary
Small library typical of public places or parks.

How many books do we read? Quantity is probably important but not everything. Quality is often fundamental, and choosing your book to suit your tastes and attitudes is the best way to create a small library of culture.

 

We often read without understanding because they are full of thoughts in our heads or because we don’t read often. It also depends on the genre of books: the most difficult are the intricate stories full of characters (mystery and novels) but also treatises on Philosophy.

If your intent is to have fun and not be too focused on the logic of the book, take a leisure book, I am convinced that the quality of the reading is usually more important than the content.

The length of the book is relative. If the book is very exciting we would like the book to never end. Instead some people prefer to read more books but short ones.
A book that has captured us represents a piece of our soul to be kept both in the library of books and in the library of one’s mind.

Monday Thoughts: stable supports

gettyimages-morningrun-1515515761

What is faith? We believe in faith by thinking we believe. And we think that our faith is the fruit of our beliefs or our moralities and ideas. But in reality we have faith only in the things that keep us firm ground. Because in every moment we never feel safe except with our convictions to which we cling. We call this faith because we cover it with our unconsciousness to overcome the darkest and most bare moments …

Our confessional is the gear of our image

Our image never coincides with our soul but it certainly influences it.

To think that social media is just a pastime is pure utopia.  In fact there are many people who use facebook (or even other social networks) to let off steam.

With this you can define a confessional facebook. people can even let off steam with images … and maybe it’s also a natural and human side but sometimes it does as if they were going to a religious confessional …

The ingenuity and cleanliness of childhood

When we are children our minutes flow as if we had an eternity before and as if we were in the pure unconsciousness of our age.

In the 90s and 2000s, virtual entertainment was much cleaner and the TV was like a baby sitter.

Today smartphones create a world in which perdition no longer allows for a clean world and now Do wash your dirty linen in public.

The mother spreads the clothes between the filaments of the system to the extent that cleaning it allows them to be exhibited.

Perhaps for some it does not make sense to criticize the technological evolution that forces us to keep up with the times, but surely a comparison with the past allows us to be more wise.

I miss the 90s and 2000s a bit

FACE OF TAIL

This time it remains difficult to extrapolate a reflection, but I try anyway

Even the dogs have a virtual world, in which the friends sniff each other, probably at the tail.

The virtual world always exists even when we interpret on the street the clothes of a character who does not belong to us. So the dogs created their world with the tail wagging.

If anyone has any better insights, suggest me! Good evening!
