A better direction in life.

Life is about creating yourself. Having said that, many of us get used to something, even if it is not giving us good results, and we stay there and continue on that path. But sometimes a new scenery, a change in habits, a new lifestyle is needed to create something better in our lives. Sometimes a particular relationship is too much drama, fights, arguments, trying hard to be happy; and for that reason I must leave it and follow my own path.

Or oftentimes the way I behave, the daily habits I have are not giving me the results in life that I want; and thus I must change those habits, healthier, wiser, more mature habits. We are meant to progress, to discover love and happiness in ourselves; however, this discovery requires change, it requires that we leave behind what is not truly working for us and so begin a new path. This means that we must let go of the comfort and really seek our progress and health in life.

This also means to reinvent yourself, to stop getting attached to the old way of doing things, and thus start a new chapter in your life and something which is better for you. Life is what we make of it. Life is not about others, but about you. So, if you need to leave others, leave a particular system, leave culture and tradition, then do it with a second thought. If you think too much you’ll lose the courage, the confidence to start a new path.


And for the ones among us who enjoy a good fantasy story, I remind you of Michael Vega’s amazing story. Only on Kindle Vella. The first 3 chapters are for free. Then you can buy each episode, or the whole story.

A  story  of  heaven,  hell,  and  cosmic  punishment.

This  story  is  about  a  rebellious  young  man,  Michael  Vega,  who  gets  into  trouble,  ends  up  in  prison,  and  then  dies.

But  this  particular  story  begins  when  he  comes  back  from  hell.  He  escapes.  Perhaps  he  comes  back  for  love.  Maybe  for  rebellion. 

But,  even  though  you  will  encounter  themes  like  heaven,  hell,  and  aliens,  my  real  intention  here  is  to  help  us  ponder  this  life,  Creation,  and  the  resurrection  of  each  one  of  us  in  our  life’s  journey.

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.

Feminine/Woman/Life

This is about relationships, about the feminine, about the emotional body. Because it is all about this. The mind, the ego, the chattering and arrogant voices, is its opposite. So, life itself is not about the mind. The mind must be tames, yes, enlightened, awakened. But one still must connect (relationship) with oneself beyond that petty mind. Know the feminine force and you know the secrets to a better life in all aspects. Some of us may not understand. Some of us may be rattled and irritated by this.

This understanding depends on where you are in your journey right now. Don’t act out. No one is better or worse. Just different understandings. So, relationship. What is it…?? No labels. Don’t say romantic or friendship. Just relationship. It is a deep connection. It is about the feminine force. It is about the emotional body. The mind sometimes cannot understand the feminine if it is disconnected from the emotional body. A woman, for example, deep in her, beyond all other desires in life. She just wants to feel appreciated, loved, special. She’s been given the greatest glory, the greatest essence, beauty itself (physical and otherwise).

Men think a woman is difficult to understand quite often, but in reality this is not the case. A woman is easy to understand, because she just wants one thing. To feel loved. Now, how a man goes about making that particular woman feel loved?? That is very personal and individual to each man and whether he’s awakened or not. And the man. He is the masculine, the mind, the brunt of the ego. Most of the time, he doesn’t really know what he wants. He wants sex. He wants money. He wants love. He wants to become better. He wants to be the best at everything in society. He’s lost if he doesn’t bring awakening to his mind. We, men, must bring purpose, the righteous path, a vision of what we truly want in life.

As a young man, I went through this. Most men go through this. But some remain prideful and do not admit it; and this is their burden increasing each day. So, to not make this too long. Relationship. Seek to connect to your emotions. Seek to understand yourself at a deeper level beyond mind and quick desires or urges. Because relationship is the feminine. Life is the feminine. Existence is the feminine. No man can truly become a lover and a creator in life without understanding the feminine. And even though this post might seem drivel to many, many others will understand what this is about. Life is suffering and the mind troubled, frustrating and stubborn if we lack the understanding of the feminine.

Thanks for reading.

How to love

There is no feeling like the one that gives us acceptance, support, unity, harmony, and that sense of freedom yet embrace from the ones we love. After all, everybody in life seeks to feel accepted and validated by the people around them. But this love must be nurtured within you first, because if it is not then you’ll become needy and you will become a slave to others while you are in search for this love from them. No one wants to feel needy, like we must get validation or assurance from others in order to feel loved, valued, happy. That is why is extremely important to nurture this greater love first in ourselves.


And sometimes people seek to demonstrate love by going to great lengths, by giving opinions, by trying to fix, by showing that they can be nurturers; but really, quite often, just being there is enough. Just to let ourselves and others know that the value of love is in remaining. The ego, the overthinking mind, seeks to show worth, to validate by action, to seek more ways to display how we feel. Sacrifice, strain, effort, gifts, great demonstrations. This is what society says one should do to love, to make someone feel loved, to find value in ourselves; however, this is a mechanical pattern which is born out of our egos to feel better about ourselves.


Because the simplicity of love is experienced fully by just being there, for ourselves and for others; and this does not require the ego to come up with newer ways to “love.” Because this is a more pure, heartfelt, honest and authentic love; and a love which does not make you a slave to others or to their ways to love you or not love you, to their expectations or to their requirements from you. It’s a love which remains in you. It’s a love which heals in relationships. And it’s the only love which can make you whole. And this wholeness is what we all seek. It is in us really. Without anxiety about finding newer ways to show our care. Without copying others. Without feeling less than others and their actions. Just communicating. Just gazing into each other’s eyes. This is all that love is. The rest is a made up scheme from the overactive ego in us.


And here are some good, old promos for your enjoyment:

Strong and Confident

So, sometimes we may feel depressed, neglected, miserable even. Perhaps something didn’t go as planned. Maybe somebody else didn’t share our same feelings. Or it might be that certain outcomes in life just don’t seem to agree with us at some level. Whatever that is, we have the capacity to make it better. One may not see it at times, due to being anxious, angry, overwhelmed; but we all have the capacity to turn things around or make them better. This takes patience, of course; however, it also requires that you keep a peaceful mind, a mind that is strong and committed to keep going.

If we allow our minds to fall into fear. If we tell ourselves that we are incapable of doing something. If all we do in our minds is complain, curse, feel intimidated and shy about our own progress. If there is no desire to keep going in spite of the drama and difficult situations we live, then we are letting fear rule our decisions. And this makes you weak, unable to see your true capacity in your life, and it keeps you chained to this lack of self-love. Lack of self-love makes us paranoid, afraid and angry in our relationships.

The true purpose in your life is found once you let go of all that stress and anxiety, pain from the past and guilt you carry, and all that harmful intimidation and feelings of inferiority preventing you from becoming truly free. Whether a woman or man, the power begins in your determination and confidence to move forward in this. Now, please understand, if you don’t find your true purpose by letting go of all this fear, then you will fail in your life, in your relationships, in the treatment to yourself even. You will ask yourself why things are so bad in your life. You won’t see solutions.

You won’t feel strong and confident to become a better person in your relationship with yourself and with another. And without a sense of purpose, and without strength and confidence, we cannot really make ourselves feel proud, truthful, valued; but exactly this is what is required to live a happy life. So one must always remain aware of our minds, and so let go of any anger, frustration, anxiety, fear we may feel. This works for me, as it will work for you as well. So, keep your head up, remain honest, committed and confident in your mind.

Simply love

What is the true meaning of Valentine’s Day beyond all the concepts, history, and society’s influences…??

What is love really…??

People all over the world, or in most of the world, are preparing for Valentine’s Day. They are going shopping, and reserving restaurant dates, and going on trips, and doing some kind of special gesture of love for another. Why…?? This is what society influences in you, right?? This is what brings anxiety to single people, and also anxiety to people in romantic relationships. The single one wants a romantic relationship and to be bought things and remembered this one day. The one in a romantic relationship already worries about buying something special, about some grand gesture to show some irrational concept of love in one day that, society has told him, is the most important day regarding love.

But is love celebrated one day a year…?? Is love a concept that says that you have to buy and do some great gesture on this exact day?? What is really love for you?? Love is friendship. Love is connection. Love is family. Love is acceptance. Love is truth. What does this mean…?? It means you are love, and your family is love, and all your loved ones, and those neighbors you don’t know. There is no special day, or person even; because love is in you, you radiate it, which means you must become loving with yourself and with others. All those troubles you carry, that mental anguish, those painful memories. These are to be transformed and embraced, daily; because true love begins in you.

Buying things, grand gestures, special trips. These do not really mean anything if you are empty inside and you do not carry love and acceptance for yourself. It should give you health of body and mind. It’s not about another, but about yourself. It’s also about the way you treat others daily. Forget special days. Show a great moral character daily. If love is to be true, then it must change you from within, not from without by making grand gestures to be seen and accepted by another. Not gestures to follow society and copy others. You feel lonely because you try to copy others, society and the concept they have of what “love” is.

But this does not help. But this only makes the loneliness heavier on you, and it brings you more anxiety, more jealousy, more heavy burdens to carry. If you can just remember that love is an essence in you, and that you transform yourself daily into love by accepting yourself and by becoming a moral person, then you can truly love whoever comes in contact with you. But no special day can do this, no special gesture; but only the commitment in yourself daily, and only everyday moral gestures beginning from yourself can.


So, what are you waiting for?! This Valentine’s Day, and every day, help yourself. Books! Books! Books! Expand your mind. Become more creative. Do it with these promos. Choose your books wisely.

Let it go.

What makes people act in harmful ways towards themselves and towards others…??

What they carry inside becomes quite often the monster and the tragedy of their present lives.

The secret is to let go, lose your attachment, practice better habits, and create new inspirations and new ways of thinking. Because we all carry our burdens, our challenges, and even past memories which might be coming back to haunt our present; but it is extremely important for your health to be more easygoing, more accepting, without less judgment and without making a big deal out of everything. Your mind and body requires you to accept yourself as you are, with all the burdens, flaws, mistakes, and things you secretly struggle to hide. This is the enemy. By hiding it, by escaping it, you give it more strength, more energy to alter your personality and make you choose wrongly in life.


And nothing is more damaging to the way we think and feel than being uptight and not flexible to life’s up and downs. Whatever happened, let it go. And whatever is bothering you now, is not actually bothering you. What presents itself as annoying, burdensome, challenging, is your own ego, your preconceived notion of things and your attachment to the way you want things to be. Let your mind rest, without all this anxiety and rigid perspectives of things. Your ego makes you act out and subconsciously you create a toxic program, a mental habit which creates more burdens and problems for you to believe as real


So, you are your own enemy; but you don’t even know it. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. Become acquainted with your enemy (ego) and learn to become more relaxed and adventurous. Don’t put the effort into thinking more ways to be anxious and upset; but put that effort instead into creating better habits, new thoughts, new perspectives, and to make yourself more understanding and creative in terms of life changes. Life goes well. Life goes not as well. We all go through this roller coaster. But the secret is to remain new all the time. Don’t let it consume you. Think freshly. Be more flexible. Not only for your relationships with people, but also for the relationship with yourself, with your past, with your present, with your thoughts of a future, and for that relationship with life itself.


“Life is a dream to be deciphered only by a dreamer,” he said. “To lose yourself in the dream, to learn how dreams are built, that is the point of life”

So, let’s learn how dreams are built. And for that, the best book promos.

Breaking the rules.

What is love to you…??

Without putting labels and concepts to it, how do you love…??

Can you leave the rules, ways of thinking and believing when it comes to loving…??

How many rules for loving each other! Humankind has grown too attached to rules, hasn’t it…?? When you’re dating, you’re afraid of saying the wrong thing, or you’re afraid of what they could think about you, or you try to hide the way you truly feel so nobody really knows. One gets so anxious, and condemns oneself really, just because one overthinks love. And this confuses you, and it distorts what love truly is as you grow up and experience life. And this creates your character as a human being, and it affects you in all your choices and ways you feel in any aspect in life.

Once in a relationship, the same overthinking happens, maybe less anxious, perhaps less intimidating; however, the mind still seeks to control and assign labels to the experience of being with each other. People seek for a meaning to be together, they judge what the other one does, they live trying to change one another; and yet nobody sees their own flaws, their own ugly side and what needs to be improved in themselves. People argue and blame each other, and they focus on the problem as they relive the past over and over again. This sick pattern is about finding fault in the other person, and never about finding fault in oneself.

So, who creates all these things, this drama, these petty arguments…?? Too much thinking. And it always involves the other person, doesn’t it?? See the pattern of self-deception here?? Because this is not true love. This is something else. This is the “love” of the intellectual. Always looking outside himself, at the other person. Always thinking, strategizing, judging, condemning. When true love, in reality, is so much easier because it doesn’t involve thinking anxiously. Can you see this?? Can you let it go?? If you can, then love becomes magic, which means it becomes unburdened by the mind, by its labels and prejudices. And this gives you more peace, less anxiety, more wisdom, less need for control, more openness emotionally, less obsessions and stubborn thinking.


I hope you enjoyed that and apply it in your relationships.

Now, this one following is my first YA fantasy/mystery novel. It is similar, as in epic adventure type, as “Harry Potter” and “Lord of The Rings.” See if it is your kind of read.

Goodreads review:

“A story of a young 12 years old orphan boy who get guided by Indian Spiritual Guru Adit Acharya. Being Indian, I got attached with the story easily. Story line is very good. Lot of things to learn. Author Asa Rodriguez has written very good life quotes on True Love. The story is very much inspiring. I recommend this book to youngsters as adults.” ~ Ashish Jain.

Why do you feel lonely…??

What is loneliness…??

What is that feeling of emptiness one tries to always escape…??

And why do people tend to do this over and over again??

It all stems from feeling lonely, even subconsciously. Humans have created a heaven, a hell, God, Satan, spirits and a spiritual realm waiting after this life, etc, because they feel lonely. Humankind feels lonely. This is also why everyone seeks relationships, even if they’re not ready for them. Violent arguments, wars, seeking to feel superior, richer and more prosperous than another, bullying, feelings of hate towards another. It is all about feeling alone, feeling isolated, feeling empty deep inside and putting on a mask to hide how they truly feel. So, in reality, this has nothing to do with the people around you, or the people that is not around you, or the things you’ve accomplished in life, or the things you haven’t accomplished in life. This is about becoming content, accepted, joyful in yourself, by yourself.

The worst mistake, the addictive drug, is when one feels lonely and immediately seeks other people, relationships, groups of any kind, money and position in society to escape one’s loneliness. This makes your anxiety and lack of self-love even greater in you. From my own experience, I can tell you that awakening, enlightenment, complete self-love, or however you want to call it, is about getting acquainted with your own feelings of loneliness. Escaping makes you weaker, more troubled, it diminishes your moral character towards yourself. Facing your fears of loneliness, you become your fears of loneliness; and soon afterwards, this familiarity becomes your normal.

And now you’ve become stronger, without having to run to somebody else for comfort or validation. Because if you really can make the act of being by yourself joyous and a source of happiness and love for you, then you get to strengthen yourself; and this is an inner strength which nobody, and no problem in life, can take away from you. When this magic inside you happens, from that moment on, you never give up, you never feel less, you never feel rejection, you never feel troubled or inferior to another. This personal process has made you a human being of greater moral qualities and character, and such is a human being who has enlightened himself, with complete confidence, with greater love and purpose, with a vast determination and self-discipline to be constantly happy in his life.
