Buried deep…

All about learning

And there is a lot more to be learned. With my 41 years old, I think that everything is a lesson. I look back to my past and learn something new all over again. For example, you can take a painful memory, ask yourself why pain exists and what can be learned from it.

Perhaps on the surface, you tell yourself that nothing can be learned from it. But if you stick to it, if you allow yourself to let go of the pain and extract just the memory experience, then you can discover something buried even beyond all that anxiety and pain.

Extracting the inspiration

Noticed that I’ve said ‘if you allow yourself to let go of the pain’?? That’s key. It is very important you do not experience that pain again, because if you do then you will mentally try to run away and not learn anything.

So, letting go of the past pain is essential, and in fact the inspiration lies not in the pain but in what’s beyond the pain. And that’s what we’re looking for: Inspiration to create a better future.

Ideas/Characters

The birth of an idea

I find that, most of the time, the best ideas are born from simplicity. Take for example, the hero or villain in a movie or book. Something truly painful happened to them. A really troubled past made them who they are, regardless of the powers, weapons, or toys for combat they use now. Focus on the psychological change of each one of them.

And that is simplicity, because we have all suffered; so we can all relate to suffering and the psychological changes one may experience. All we have to do is take the suffering and add some interesting and creative experiences that shape the mind accordingly, and then we have a new character.

Driven characters

I make the character go through self-doubt, self-pity, anger, and all kinds of simple but real feelings. After all, my feelings lead me through my life, and they also lead the characters in my stories in order to be real like me. All pain and suffering exists in my life for a purpose, whether I like to admit it or not–school bullying, surgeries, separations, loss, bigotry, etc.

That exists to make me stronger. In the same sense then, a fiction character must allow himself to feel all his pain and go through a challenging transformation process; and then decide if to follow his anger as the villain, or to learn from the pain and gain strength as the hero.

Stories…

Life

One of the most interesting things in life, to me at least, is just that, life itself, how it develops from seemingly nothing to something more and more. From nothingness into a fetus, and from a fetus into an adult.

It is in fact why I created Shadow. Ben’s shadow, who is a magical creature in the infant or early child stage, and who is the 2nd main character in my dark fantasy series BENJAMIN JONES.

Stories in life

Stories are what shape us. Each day in our heads we tell ourselves something, whether positive or negative. So, whatever you tell yourself is what counts. Would you allow yourself to be miserable because the situations in your life don’t match your expectations??

Or would you keep positive even in the face of loss and sad events in your life?? Shadow is a positive character in the series, even silly and childish at times; but that is because he represents the love, the innocence, the curiosity in Ben.

So, he was born from magic and in the image of Ben. Shadow is his shadow. And that is what your life is, a shadow, a projection of your attitudes and character in life. Because, again, stories shape us. So choose your story carefully each day.

Clearer mind, Clearer life.

Whether that specifically is true or not, I really do not know. What I do know is that to think clearly we must be of sound mind. I base my life on this. I am an advocate for health. Good nutrition. Exercise. Letting go of past hurt. Anything that makes you lose clarity in your choices. Seeking the best daily habits to increase your moral standing.

We are our habits.

We have a powerful subconscious mind. That subconscious, whether we know it or not, fills itself with all the things we do and experience, with all the things we hear, with all the things we see and give attention to. From birth to death, we are guided to do and make choices by our subconscious mind and its content.

That is why I choose the best habits for myself and suggest the best habits for you. I suggest you stop yourself and look at your habits, at your life choices, at your mind and at your feelings. What is the content of all this?? Are you leading yourself to better choices, to the increase of great moral values in you, to change into better choices for yourself and your future??

Life gets clearer when your mind gets clearer.

I grew up with some anxiety. I did have many problems in school, and as a result I was continually being moved or transferred. I specially had problems when we moved to U.S from Argentina and my father passed away. But through it all I’ve learned that my mind is everything, which meant having control over my own mind and not falling prey of the situations around me.

So, look at your own mind, conscious and subconscious. Find out your weaknesses and why you think, feel and do this or that way. Seek to understand yourself to create better choices every day for yourself. Life is just a reflection of the clarity in your mind. I know is hard to understand this because we all carry our own anxiety and problems in life. And there’s no judgment from me here. There’s only the will to bring some insight and help you understand yourself, because that is how we truly see life clearly and grow as human beings.
