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 …
Today is the last day of summer and tomorrow officially enters the autumn with the equinox.
Lying on the sofa or in the armchair, walking around the city, the mind seeks relief from the thought of starting the week again.
The day we would like had no time and stopped in the afternoon when we are in front of the TV. Think back to Saturday, the day that has the most perspective, thanks especially to Sunday.
I try to live thinking it’s always Saturday or Sunday. The day of rest is often sad, thinking that each time the week begins with the working deadlines. Then I change the agenda: the dates remain the same but I change the days … no more Monday, Tuesday …
Certainly they coincide with the limits of our inhumanity!
The life of this world has a limited time but it must not make up for much before its natural course.
Probably the man will settle on other planets like the moon or mars, even managing to correct and change atmospheric conditions.
The sea is the most significant indicator of climate change: its rise, which is increasing every year, represents the danger that the planet faces in raising temperatures caused to pollution.
This year the rise of the sea has been a record because the largest icebergs and Greenland glaciers have melted. And as if this were not enough, this year the US president Trump asked Denmark to buy Greenland. An action that could have brought an unspoiled nation into the wrong hands.
Moreover, this year the two greatest tragedies of the century have happened: the fires of the Amazon forest and those of the forests of Siberia, which are the green lungs of the planet. What else must happen to warn the powerful of the earth to take serious action? At Kyoto protocol – which includes the most important environmental measures – does not involve the USA, which is responsible for 36.2% of total carbon dioxide emissions.
We all need an anchor, to stop us from the hectic world, or to hold on in difficult times. It is always difficult to understand what we need in sad times; with the name of Anchor we refer metaphorically to something that serves our soul and not only …
There’s anything better than the anchor to refer to something that keeps us steady in times of storm.
It allows us to stand firm in a place without sinking and avoid sinking along with the boat in the abyss.
But is that the best place to drop anchor? Difficult to establish, almost impossible. We always want to know how the bottom is to make sure that the anchor does not move. A bottom too deep certainly does not allow you to put down the anchor!
When I was little, every time I saw a port I always wanted to see the bottom, as if the transparency of the water gave me support and tranquility.
In today’s world, where technology breaks into our daily lives, books are the only place to drop anchor. In books we are able to catch the best thoughts by returning children who want to see the bottom to mirror their soul.
As always, Pawel Kuczynski’s drawings inspire me with thoughts and reflections.
What is freedom? It is the power to choose between multiple possibilities in a precise moment! But the past is a merchant and leads us to think that destiny has often chosen for us, as if everything were already written.
Other times we think that our choices are dictated only by our will, when instead they are influenced by a myriad of factors and circumstances that make up the system.
The gear of this system is run by a few powerful people who lead us to believe that we live in a world of possibilities when in reality they are the ones who choose for us.
To give an example we can think of the political elections: our vote is a drop in the sea and does not influence much if in our life we do not fight to create a group of people who share our thoughts.
Voting is often influenced by big of i-tech that can influence voting with social and internet. We believe we can choose instead we are deluded even when we interact with the system, because fighting it is itself the project of the system.
