21 Tips to awaken your soul and shake your life (translated from Spanish)
1. Do not overreact !: Whatever they do to you, whatever you are told, whether they adulate you or attack you, just let it flow and DO NOT overreact. Thus you will cut off the Karma that envelops this aggression, and the energy of the universe will flow for your perfect good. You will be compensated!
2. Practice detachment in all its forms: Everything is temporary, momentary. You can not control the disappearance, death or extinction of people or objects. Accepting this fact takes a great burden off you!
3. Travel with a light luggage: Do not impose backpacks on your back, or carry heavy ballast. Only accept to carry what is indispensable in this trip called Life.
4. Grant everyone forgiveness: Do not poison your heart with hatred or resentment. Learn to tame your dragons! The one who is damaged is always yourself, and meanwhile, the world keeps turning and you are the one who gets sick.
5. Fall in love with life: Love everything the universe contains, from a small caterpillar to an imposing tree. Be passionate about your today, your mornings, your afternoons, your nights. Love your life!
6. Become aware of your actions: Each step you take, every moment, do it from the (higher) Self, from the consciousness, not from the thought that is always conditioned by the ego.
7. Become “Presence”: Stay in the here and now. Focus your life in the present moment as if you had no past, no memory, as if you had no future.
8. Remember that “You will die”: Do not remember a day, a week, or a season. Remember forever that you will die! It is inevitable, your physical body will die, so do not cling to anything.
9. Accept not knowing what will happen tomorrow: Become a new BEING every day, renew yourself as life itself. Dust off your old thoughts and recycle them. Invent yourself again at each sunrise. Who said you are the same?
10. You are not your thoughts: You are that being that resides in the intimacy of your soul, where you are infinite possibilities and versions of yourself. Do not limit yourself by choosing only one of those options that you are. Be all the possibilities, and remain in a state of consciousness without choice.
11. Let love be your motto, your standard and your guide: Let it be the point of departure and the point of arrival. But let it be especially the way. Become love, renouncing the lies of the ego, and embracing your soul.
12. Be friendly with your story: It is the only way to cure your traumas. It is what it is. Do not be stubborn trying to modify something that IS already as it is.
13. Meditate: Pray, take care of your spaces and your surroundings of solitude and silence. Learn to Schedule yourself every night to have a magical next day!
14. You are still alive: There is still time to enjoy this wonderful world, find your way and the reason why you are here. Do not complain, do not regret, be thankful because you are alive.
15. Do not think so much: Stop that mind that scrutinizes, analyzes, reviews and judges everything. These constant and repetitive thoughts are more of the same, don’t you see? From there, from that inner struggle of your mind, nothing will change.
Your thoughts only make noise and entertain you, but they will not solve or create anything. Use your brain for specific things like your work and those activities that require thinking … The rest of the time just “be”.
16. Always choose health: In your food, in your thoughts, in your emotions, in your relationships, in your eyes, in your actions, in your words, in everything choose to be healthy. You were born healthy, do not choose to get sick.
17. Trust in God / Universe: Have faith. Try to know yourself.
18. Take the best trip you can make: It’s the trip back to yourself. That trip that is your best adventure and is also your conquest and your legacy.
You are very important. It may be that you are just a drop in the ocean, but without that drop the ocean is incomplete. Empty of you. You have been created for something. Find out why.
19. Help others find their way: There is no better gift, there is no better love. The service is joy.
20. Be happy in all the circumstances of your life: You are not your circumstances. Do not identify with your story. Return to the source of happiness that is your soul.
21. May your life be a testimony: A miracle, a song of hope, a grain of sand, a voice of Love.
