Cherish those who matter.

We are all connected. We can have different personalities, mindsets, experiences in life; but we are all human and feel that empathy, that sense of knowing that we all seek connection. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes it doesn’t. People come in and out of our lives, and if we’re wise enough we can learn from the experience (whatever that was). Focus on how people make you feel and on who truly cares about you. Focus on who is there for you, even if they have their own lives now and they may be busy at times. Remember who’s important, and who was there for you.

People loves according to how they have been raised, or according to how they see and understand themselves; so, understand that your way of showing affection could be really different from the way of showing affection others have. Having said that, always observe and learn to cherish those who, in their own way, are there for you when you need them. Remind yourself that we are all learning to love ourselves and others. So don’t judge. We are all going through our own challenges. And the key is to really cherish those who matter to us, but always putting our egos aside. People have misunderstandings, and yet people can still care deep inside.


Thanks for reading. And, just a reminder that for a limited time, you can get the 2nd in the epic series for free. Opt-in optional, which means you can choose to join my newsletter or not and still get the download for free.

Enjoy it now

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

― Eleanor Roosevelt

Life can be complicated. One might live with confusion. What to do?? I don’t have the money I need. The deadline is coming! What choice do I make?! What did I do wrong?? And many more like this. So many of us live constantly in our heads, in our busy and anxious minds; and this is what we must realize in ourselves. Nothing matters more than realizing this in life, because in order to live and enjoy fully our moments we need to understand that love and happiness is not in the chase we do. It’s not in money, even though we live in a society and we must pay for what we consume. It’s not in seeking better education and thinking about future exams and study, even though it is important to design a good future in society.

It is now. The joy, the love, the value is now. In the things, relationships, situations you have. It is about paying attention to all this. And it doesn’t really matter if we have much or not. And it doesn’t really matter if we live in a paradise or not. And what about the kind of job we have?? It doesn’t matter either. The only thing that can get us to real joy is our own attention. Attention into what our lives are now. Find the passion, the positivity, the motivation, the purpose and value in you by always taking time to enjoy and bring positive attitude to your current situation, moment, people around you.

When my mind goes into the future, thinking about certain outcome, pondering what I could get. Or when my mind goes to the past, asking myself what went wrong, what did I do, why something failed. When this happens then, I instantly focus on getting away from this and putting all my energy in the now, in my family, in my writing, in being with my dog, in enjoying a nice day outside, etc. etc. Because it is natural that the mind will always pull us one way, making us feel anxious, chasing money, hunting for better opportunities; but it is our responsibility to shift our attention and love ourselves and our lives now. Without questioning. Without making excuses. Just live it, enjoy it now.

Better life quality

 “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Hippocrates

In my life, lifestyle, character and behavior daily, there is nothing more important than good nutrition. Think about it. Why are we alive right now, or what sustains us and gives us physical life…?? The energy inside our cells. And how is that energy replenished, maintained, made better or worse?? Food. Nutrition. This is what feeds our minds and bodies.

You may want to eat and drink whatever you want in your life, but you know this is true. And it takes a lot of self-discipline to eat right, to stop your ego and selfish desires for poison and acquire a better eating lifestyle. But it is all worth it, because life is about quality. If you have good energy in you, then you’ll be in a better mood to enjoy life, and you’ll be more creative and intelligent, and you’ll be a better man or woman in your relationships.

And what about self-care, self-love…?? Self-care is to properly nourish our bodies and minds. It is all about adopting good habits. It is all about training your mind to desire good, nutritious food. It is about being creative and cooking. It is about choosing what is better for yourself. It is about about attracting better in your life.

Please, watch this video below which I made titled: “Better Life Quality.”

The best mind

So, what is mindset…?? What is mind?? Isn’t it everything?? I mean, we think, say, feel, do whatever our minds are. To do anything in this life, first we must create a thought; and in time that thought becomes many thoughts, and so this mental stream becomes our habitual mind. The content of our minds. So, when you feel worship to God is because your mind is full of beliefs and religious things, even if you don’t assist to a religion. And when you become angry and paranoid is because your mind is full of thoughts which you despise. And when you feel arrogant and superior to others is because your mind is full of images of yourself that you have created egoistically. The same with progress in your life. Your mind dictates your progress or lack of it.

The only obstacle is self-imposed. The only obstacles are your beliefs, your attachment to your arrogance and to the ways things should be, the self-pity and jealousy you carry. You are the content of your mind, not more than this. You are not what you feel or you say you are. So, what is your mind’s content..?? Is it beliefs, culture and traditions, self-pity, doubt, arrogance, and endless nonsense about the supernatural?? Become aware of it, because whatever happens in your life, and whatever you experience, is what you attract due to your mind’s content. You become your mind’s content. This is for any of us, because any of us have the responsibility to remain aware of our minds at all times.


And now I want to present you with the latest video promo I made about the main character of this YA fantasy/mystery story I am writing. The BENJAMIN JONES series.

“BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman,” #1 in the series, is already out and in Amazon. You can visit my website for more info: https://asarodriguez.com

So this is a little about Ben. As the main character of epic adventures, I thought he deserved a little introduction, since his story will make for several books to come.

And I have just gotten word that “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman,” is approved by Audible in its audiobook form, to be on sale in Audible, Amazon and iTunes in a few days. So maybe my narration of Ben’s story can reach the ears of people too.

His story commences here:

The Way…

“If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.”

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

The key is in observing the pain, not running away from it.

We all struggle, we all carry our burdens; however, one must understand that they are there for a reason.

What is life without this understanding…??

Much more pain, struggle, unhappiness, frustration and anger.

I’ve had much pain growing up. I’ve suffered my own struggles, like I’m sure you’ve suffered yours. We are all still suffering in some aspect. Finances. Relationships. Illnesses. Psychological and emotional burdens. The past. The future. There is always some pain and tragedy in our lives, and quite often we bury these deeply within ourselves so we don’t show weaknesses. It is a subconscious choice to bury the pain and seek to escape it or ignore it through some other distraction or entertainment. Maybe through work. Perhaps through eating. Maybe through seeking relationships. Or through some kind of denial process. But this is really unhealthy. The key is to feel free, confident, powerful, by yourself, in yourself, to create a better life; but with all this pain it becomes impossible sometimes.

But have you ever asked yourself, seriously, why the pain, the hurt, the suffering happens…?? Why do we all go through so much?? What is the point?? Suffering comes out of our choices, even when we don’t know that they will bring suffering. But suffering is meant to teach you something, to awaken you into some aspect of life, to push you to become better. Of course, if we deny this, or if we remain angry and arrogant, then we won’t learn anything; because in order to actually learn from the suffering our minds must be free of any anxiety. If there is anxiety, anger and the rest, then we will pay attention to it while missing the lesson of that struggle or hurt.

I am talking about the choice we unconsciously make of attaching ourselves to our self-pity, to our mental drama, to our depression, to our past memories of pain, and to all those things that create a lot of overthinking in our minds. Overthinking makes the suffering worse. Overthinking does not help, because it brings more pointless questions and drama instead of helping us move on. And, in order to understand your life and your suffering, then you have to calm your mind, observe your own choice to attach your attention to mental drama. You must be aware of your own mind. Awareness is putting attention not on the event that happened, not on the memory; but it is putting attention on your own reactive feelings towards what happened to change them, and it is not choosing to suffer those events. Because in order to move on and be happy creating a better life, then you must leave attachment to the images and words of suffering in your mind. To be happy, you have to free your mind of struggle and pain. You must choose this all the time.

Building you.

“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.”

~ Maya Angelou

It is important that one remains aware that life is an exploration, which means that you need confidence, and courage, and passion for some activity, process or goal in your journey. But this must be your own passion, not out of religion, or groups, or systems in society. This must come out of you, begin in you, and make you feel better about yourself, which means to make you a better person. Like working on health for your body and mind, perhaps through exercise and a change in your food consumption. Or like writing, sketching, making arts and crafts. It is about dedicating your time and energy to build something in you, some strong confidence and desire to grow your talents and work on becoming unique.

Do you know why people fall into addictions, liked gambling, sex, drugs, and even playing their little games to be like others, to attract others, and to be one more desperate copycat in life…?? It is because they secretly, subconsciously, feel talentless, empty, lonely, and needy inside them. I am not judging though. I merely bring you to the awareness of it, so you may see the problem in yourself perhaps, or in another, and learn from this, and become better yourself from this. Because this is a big problem in the world right now. Of course, everybody hides it, they wouldn’t let anybody know about the burdens they carry; because people seek to pretend and belong to other groups of people, and even do it subconsciously or without knowing it.

But life is about becoming better. And this requires self-discipline. This requires vision and follow-through. And this requires that you find a passion, immerse yourself in it, and only build your own path and way to do things as you go. So you can gain self-confidence, and lessons, and character, and forge that uniqueness in your personality. This is how you grow love, happiness, and that feeling of success in yourself without feeling anxiety and neediness for someone else or for society’s systems. And this brings you great creativity as well, because this makes you able to find solutions on your own, and able to see your own attachments and neediness, and because this helps you to become less stubborn and quicker to learn life lessons. And that, obviously, shines a big problem too. The problem that many of us carry, because many learn life lessons too slowly, and others don’t even learn anything. So be aware of all this.

To stay in love…

Love can be difficult at times. Why??

Why does people turn to suicide??

Why can someone fall into great depression for a long time, even bringing down the immune system??

So, love. Love this. Love that. We can say that it is full of concepts. “Jealousy love.” “Angry love.” “Anxious love.” “Obsession love.” “Frustrated love.” And all the “loves” the mind interprets, right…?? But surely you can understand that these concepts are deviations, corruptions of our minds. Because if love is to be the greatest thing in life, in existence, then love cannot be these aforementioned. And love is the greatest thing in life indeed. Think about it. Love is a connection to life. It must inspire you. It must help you become confident, moral, strong in your own life.

So, if someone is to find true love without deviations and concepts, then this someone must get out from his head. Your mind overthinks everything. Love is distorted in this thinking. So, thinking, as tempting as it can be, to judge, to interpret things, to analyze this and that, doesn’t do much good if you seek to be in love. People kill themselves from overthinking in life. Suicide, depression, OCD, anxiety of all kind. Most mental illnesses exist because people overthinks and allows themselves to make concepts in life and in love. Can you see this?? Because it is extremely important. It’s not about being a doctor or about having lots of experience, but it is about leaving your concepts and think for a second about what I write here.

And I am not talking about the concept of romantic love, friendship, or some philosophy; but I am talking about true love. True love is that sensation of morality and goodness in you. And that feeling of positivity and strength in you. This love is about your everyday living, not relationships. No depression. No overthinking. No anxiety. Just love. Just being. If things don’t go as expected in life, don’t depress yourself, don’t pity yourself; but seek hard in you for some positivity. Stop overthinking and analyzing things to death. Life is to be lived. Do your best. But don’t let your mind bring you down, your immune system and all you are. So, you simply give love to life. Every day. You give your best and move on. Don’t think too much. Let it be.


Thanks for reading. And here are some good book promos for you:

What love is.

So, what is love…??

And what is morality??

Are they different??

Are they one and the same??

Think about it.

Love is not about what you think or feel, but about what you do. True love then is 100% morality, not romantic phrases, not passions and desires, and not just acting on what brings you joy and pleasure. Love is moral character, not what everyone around you does. Love starts in yourself, not in your ego which is always seeking comfortable ways to belong to the crowds around you–whether friends, family, society in general. This desire for belonging is a sickness which dulls humankind. Because love is not taught. Experiences can indeed be taught. Traditions can be taught. That which brings acceptance and pleasure can be taught. But true love is an individual who carries, and is not burdened by, no influence from any source at all.

So, how can someone seek love in another?? If love is in you, presented to your conscience as your own moral character, how can love be out there?? So many people seek it out there, as sex, as relationships, as family, as a career, as money, as prestige, as this and that. This is the sickness. The sickness which makes someone frustrated, obsessive, violent, jealous, depressed, etc. In my book titled, I ALWAYS LOVED YOU – Creatutres of Eternal Love” – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085H8LZQ3 , I talk about how love is not of the mind, not of your beliefs, theories, or any influence from family and friends. We are creatures who easily fall trap of the illusion, of the world; however, love, as happiness, is not of the world, and cannot be found there.

While the world has beliefs about love. People making vows and ceremonies. People protesting human and animal rights. People posting nice pictures and videos on social media. You must become love yourself for it to be true in you. How…?? By adopting healthier eating habits. By seeking information on what they do to animals before you eat them. By not jumping from relationship into relationship yourself while expecting to be given love this way. By seeking to be content and truthful with yourself. By going beyond your ego and understanding why you hold beliefs and opinions, philosophies and anxiety in your mind. Liberation from all this means love. Don’t just agree or disagree with these words, but seek more information, expand your mind, seek to understand what morality is and change yourself.

Search for Life.

What are you seeking…??

Do you have specific goals??

Are you enjoying every day as it comes, or are you waiting for things to get better??

What is your purpose today??

I think that we can all share these questions, because, even though we all have our differences and carry our unique struggles in life, we are all human beings just learning through the motions. I can be more mature than you, or you can be more mature than me; however, we are never masters of our lives completely, we are always going to have doubts, fears, questions about our next move, and a lot of secrets hidden which may be burdens to carry moving forward into the future.

But I can speak for myself and tell you that I have lived life immaturely in the past, and that I have done things in my youth I am not proud of saying now; but I can also tell you what I’ve learned, which is simple, not that obvious in the moment. Life must be lived in the present. The moment hides the miracle. If I am thinking, envisioning, feeling a future, then I am not truly living. When my focus and attention stays with the future, what could happen, what could not happen, then I am robbing myself of the enjoyment of the present, no matter what that present is.

So many people try to escape the moment, because maybe the moment is not pleasant for them; but in this escape we are training our minds to always seek comfort in a daydream or in some believed future. And what happens when your mind always ignores or escapes the moment?? Well, what happens is that we develop weak moral character, and subconscious fears, and anxieties. This leads us to fall ill. Maybe psychological. Maybe emotional. Maybe physical illnesses. The fact is that whatever you don’t face becomes your burden to carry. Life is a miracle but it must be seen through the faithful eyes of positive transformation. One needs to seek something good in the moment one is living. You create your life, not the other way around.

Don’t wait to make more money. Don’t wait for a better moment in the relationship. Don’t expect the economy to be better. Don’t be attached to your imagination of a future goal. Seek to love your life and be happy now, because life is full of tiny miracles; but these are well hidden, and to find them your mind must be calm, positive, and free of anger and frustration. This is a simple message to myself and to whomever reads this and sees the truth in it. But whatever you decide to do in your life, and that is very personal. Whatever you do, enjoy your life in the moment, seek to be moral in character, display honesty and love towards yourself.

Free books. Creativity.

I feel that sometimes is easy to drown ourselves in sorrow. Not enough money. The mortgage or rent is coming up. The kids are misbehaving in school. Nobody supports me. It’s very damaging to think like this. Dangerous mental habits.

Think. What is required in life…?? What is absolutely paramount in expanding your mind and understanding?? What is the one thing that helps in our lives, to create, to find solutions, to ease ourselves in the face of problems??

Creativity. Imagination. The spark to dream and grow. Ideas and insights to boost your own capacity for imagination. Because sometimes the pressures of daily life can get to us, and the mind can become a terrible place with loud voices of fear and negativity.

Relationship problems. Any problem really. These require a mind who can step away from the overwhelming anxiety, overthinking, horrible and constant stress. This must be a mind which expands in creativity, because creativity helps your mind to create solutions and to imagine better steps to accomplish our goals and fix what needs to be fixed. And for that, and specially in this quarantine times, I find that books can help us discover new ways in life.
