Anatomy and physiology of life Self-help life truths. Stories to ponder. The free mind of a human god!

Change is the currency of life, the value of life, the essence of life. Without change, there is no evolution, progress, experience. And change is something that just comes to you, not seeking for your approval. So, it is of the very wise to welcome change. You can love it. You can hate it. You can fear it. But it is coming, whether we like it or not, and it brings the new.

If we resist change, then we suffer. If we remain attached to the old views, opinions, beliefs, traditions, lifestyles, then we will suffer and hate the new change. And that is why I say that welcoming change is of the very wise among us. And learning to adapt to change can be difficult, of course. A break up, a loss, a new lifestyle, a new country, a new change in the way we must think. These can be all challenging.

And so, one must reach deep within for bravery, for great energy to accept change, to flow with life, to switch from mental stubbornness to mental freedom to see new value in the new change. For many years I struggled with the loss of my father, and then with my brother’s, especially because we had just arrived to United States from Argentina. It was truly rough. I had to mature fast. Become the man of the house. Find the rhythm of life. Carry my family forward.

But, after much suffering, trial and error, anxiety and fears, I learned that change must align with a new mindset. And when it aligns with a new mindset, then we expand our understanding of this life, our acceptance of ourselves even, and our love for progress. Because true progress is about accepting life as it is, with the challenges, with the good and not so good changes. And this is accepting yourself, because, in all truth, you are your life.

Through creative expression.

So, here’s why everyone should choose to do something highly personal and creative, something that comes from you and that represents you and your values. I have chosen writing books. For me, writing and creating characters, worlds, ideas, experiences, is all about self-expression. It is about freeing myself from my personal burdens and difficulties appearing in life. But it’s also, and most importantly, about finding myself through my writing, through my creative expression.

What is finding myself mean?? It means that I get to stop my anxiety, my worry, my desires, my daily thoughts, and focus on my mental health, on my mind expansion as self-awareness. Because life is about learning about yourself in depth. So, expressing yourself through something personal and creative, like writing books, or a blog, or painting, or other crafts, helps you get in touch with your deepest emotions; and subconsciously your mind learns to relax and be more introspective (thinking clearly before acting impulsively).


Hi. My name is Asael (Asa) Rodriguez. I write fiction and nonfiction. But mainly I am focusing on fantasy right now. My series BENJAMIN JONES. It is about a 12-year-old orphan boy who seeks to find out about the mysterious death of his indigenous parents, but also about himself. The stories are about self-discovery and magic. Ben grows into the wisdom that we all carry magic and great love within us. We just have to discover it for ourselves.

In the stories, he also has to fight shadow creatures, necromancers, witches, etc. His journey of magic and self-discovery take him to many worlds, beginning from our world in the 1880s-1890s. He travels to other times as well. He meets friends and gods. The series just started. I am currently writing #3. If you check my website, you can find out more about it. Thanks.

Self-care: Self-esteem.

“The subconscious can play us against progress, and it can block us from becoming better. Low self-esteem is something which affects all our interactions in life, and it’s a defect running in our subconscious…

So, you may feel somewhat afraid to say the wrong thing, or intimidated around certain people, or unable to express yourself in the proper way. This might be low self-esteem. Have you wondered why that is…?? The origin of it. Explore it right now. See what’s causing it. Inquire into the content of your mind…

“You may carry good intentions, be the most caring person, even have great and profound feelings towards others; however, if you occupy your time with the wrong influence, then this could be the origin of your low-self-esteem or lack of confidence at some level. What do you do during your day…?? Is important that you are honest with yourself…

“Do you strengthen your mind properly?? Are you truly aware of what you watch?? I am not asking you if you enjoy it. I am not asking you if you feel you must watch it. I am not asking you if people you admire watch it. I am indeed asking you if what you watch is strengthening your mind and increasing your positive vibrations…” ~ I ALSWAYS LOVED YOU. Creatures of Eternal Love.


And if you are into the ‘Harry Potter’, and also the ‘Percy Jackson’ novels, then you’ll enjoy this fantasy series about gods, demons, magic, and self-discovery.

Dreams of uniqueness.

Dreams, desires for better, high aspirations in life. This is required to have for any person to love his/her life. If the person lacks this, then all sorts of anxiety, self-hatred and fears swallow the mind entirely. And then we fall into depression, and into dark thoughts that change our whole perspective of ourselves and life.

This easily leads to thoughts of suicide as well. So, finding yourself and creating your purpose, at any age, is extremely important, vital even if you truly desire to be happy. But don’t wait for the right person to come along, the right financial times, the right situation to arise.

Seek to be an individual now, reach uniqueness, and let go of anything that makes you feel confused, inadequate, self-conscious and shy, and like you have to compromise yourself in any way to feel true joy. Seek to be free. If it doesn’t feel like absolute freedom, then is not love, and is definitely not true happiness.

In order to better your life…

Everything and anything that enters the mind must be studied, discovered, analyzed and recognized as true or untrue. Does it come from tradition?? Is it a belief, an opinion, a pattern of thinking and feeling that has been created by other people for me to follow blindly??


Do I have real facts that I can prove for it?? Is it rational, logical, real; or is it just my thought and desire for it?? Is it based on anger, frustration, loneliness, lack of identity?? Is it actually helping me grow in the understanding of myself and life, or is it just another illusion believed by billions of empty souls around the world?? Ask yourself all this without making excuses.


Society, and all its systems around the globe, creates illusions to keep on feeding the ego and its emptiness. The economy. The way one should feel and act in certain situations. Traditions. Cultures. The many religions. Politics and its superiority complex. The way everything is romanticized. Fanaticism in all level. Every reality is replaced or buried by a quick illusion that makes people feel less empty.


In consequence, people follow their abominations with a smile, claiming to have the truth and attached to their blind stupidity. Each group does this without even understanding. But only learning to think for yourself will help you see through this abomination.

A mind of awareness.

What is anxiety if not attaching yourself to thoughts obsessively??

What is mastering yourself if not keeping a mind free of anger and overthinking??

I once had a high school friend who invited me to a dinner with his family. I didn’t know where I was going really. It all started like a nice meal and gathering, but then it turned into a debate about politics, different political parties, different opinions. Everybody was preferring to argue about that than to keep it harmonious, cordial, friendly. And somebody got upset, started with the name calling. The other one followed. They had asked for my opinion, but I didn’t have one. Long story short, nobody enjoyed the meal.

Their minds were full of anxiety. And this happens to the best families, I know. And this happens to the best of us as well. And that is the stress created by following your controversial thinking, overthinking, trying to demonstrate that you are right and the other one wrong. This is the enemy. Your own ego. That neediness to feel superior and display your knowledge or your opinion of something. I just think this kind of behavior is what divides people. And the fact is that the state of your mind will dictate the way you experience life.

So, to me is really important the state of my mind. To remain aware of it. Specially with Christmas coming up. Specially with all the anxiety this Covid situation brings. Holidays, whether physically apart from family or not, are about joy, harmony, giving thanks for our lives as they are. Maybe your life is not perfect. Maybe you have a thousand and one problems. But I know you can find at least one thing to be thankful for. And our lives require it. Life requires our minds to be humble and intelligent enough to reject anxiety and seek peace. So our lives can improve.

Much more real.

 

grateful1

 

What is the essence, the core, the reason which makes things enjoyable…??  And I am not talking about the best things in life or the most expensive, but I am talking about the things of every day–things like your own body, your bed at night, your family relationship, your clothing, your bite of food, your small or large faith, etc.

All this and more is what makes life possible to enjoy, the little things which are not truly so little; for our minds get used to them and may describe them to us as not so important, but in a closer look they are extremely important for our well-being.

All it takes is gratitude, recognition, realizing that these and all everyday things are giving us the chance to be capable to better enjoy our lives.  Human creatures are blind and stubborn at times, they see what they do not like in things and forget the necessity of these same things.

 

gratitude

 

To be awakened, to see the truth and heart of life is to keep every second with gratitude and contentment for what you currently have; for this is reality, the acceptance of love in you, the developing capacity for gratitude.

I am not talking about prayer as religions teach it, or any god or saint worship.  No, personally, my love and gratitude is much more real than that.  I am talking about living every second of life without complaining, without envying what others have, without disliking your current life as it is.

A gratitude in your heart is all that matters to bring acceptance and love into your mind, so you may feel strong and decided to live your life with challenges and all.
