  • Welcome

    One day will appear a hand that helps you, said to me someone when I was a child girl. Now, I see in my life and in that of the others that there are so many things to be achieved; so much dreams to be continued; so much love to be given, and to be received; nevertheless, Why to be we ourselves an obstacle to come to these?, Why doing such difficult and painful things to us?... seeing the life as horrible and undesirable; dying every day in our own solitude; in waiting of something that illuminates us, that "saves" us and, brings this happiness longed therefore time

    I was lucky to meet the young author, and of our nice meeting I would like to share something that is burdened in my heart: "You do not try to finish everything immediately, begins gradually from what you can do

    I am sure that the messages of this book, as happened to me, it will appear like a hand that can help them to live better, one feels than with everything.

    Clau Saavedra.

  • Across the history,

    in different parts of the world,

    the knowledge has seemed to coincide

    in certain points;

    as signs to journey g o o d in the life. (3.1)

  • Precedents

    I think in this book, as in the Genesis of

    the Bible, that the principal misfortune

    of the man is the solitude.

    Already in the Genesis, God said it:

    it is not good that the man is


  • In the life, there can be many obstacles;

    we should not be the principal one of


    Why to keep on working against

    ourselves? (9)

  • Many people, regularly, to live turns

    out to be to us a matter terribly

    complicated and unbearably. The

    problems of the world are so incredibly

    complex, that overwhelm us and

    distress with a sensation of incapability

    and neglect.

    Nevertheless, of form surprising

    -almost miraculous- we continue alive,

    every day longing for something more

    kind, simpler and with more felt. (95)

  • We want not to hurt ourselves, feel pain

    or misfortune, to suffer nor mistake us;

    then we do not experiment, do not see,

    do not feel; that is to say, we do not risk.

    And consequently we do not live, since

    to live implies an active and continuous

    commitment. To live supposes making

    the hands dirty; it implies falling down,

    going out of one himself, sometimes to

    suffer a little, to fight, and to work

    another slightly also; for a good. (95)

    Not everything has to happen in a

    supreme happiness level; the pain, the

    suffering or the sadness are a part of

    learning to live and mature. (9)

    The perfection is not an option, only an

    illusion; here the acceptance and the

    fondness is important to mature and to

    live. (9)

  • What I feel, I know, I please, I think, I

    value, I judge, I want, I dream, I am

    afraid, I desire, I hate, I do, I hope, I

    love, what I believe, what I understand;

    all this and of insurance more -define

    my person- it is me who is. And it are in

    constant change. (94)

    To be a person is necessary to

    become a person, to exist in process.(94)

    The knowledge, consists in: of having

    my open mind; at any place and in any

    moment, I am starting and this way I

    understand that I do not know -not at

    all. (34)

  • There is something that to consider,

    during journeying or the trip in the life

    -the rest of the life: it is not necessary to leave aside the possibility of losing

    the life. (5)

    Dying is something that we cannot

    control, to live is something that yes we

    can try. (42)

    We must try to live while there is life. (44)

  • What is the essential thing of me? Our

    body, the pleasure and the perfect use,

    the knowledge, the money, the

    possessions, beautiful children, a

    recognized work, an ideal couple, to be

    perfect, anyway. The essential thing;

    the purest, typical and important thing;

    extract of the man.

    Often we forget our fundamental part,

    our identity; the magic and the marvel of our secret being. Play a role that the

    society imposes on us, thinking

    essential to things that they can be

    obtained paying for them. (24)

    It is common to toil or to be addicted to

    these things, and to turn into them also;

    but, they constitute only the minimal

    part of what we can be. (52)

  • The search of the pleasure and the

    perfect satisfaction is almost an

    obsession in our society. The

    happiness is a part of our life; also it is

    the despair, the disappointment, the

    astonishment, and the death; also they

    are ours. It is not necessary to refuse

    to experience any of these aspects, it

    would be like refusing to the life in its

    entirety. (43)

    To refuse to experience the pain, the

    famine, the misery, a desolate look, the

    despair or the poverty; not only it is to

    protect us against the life, it is not to

    know and not to understand the


  • That gloomy that for any the

    nonexistent thing does not exist. They

    do not know of what they get lost. (9)

    The world burns our decisions, our

    love, our dreams; if we superlive to it we

    will come out of the life. (7)

  • We all have learned to take decisions,

    to live, to love and to dream somehow. If

    one considers incorrectly or painfully

    the form as he has learned the things

    and wants to learn in different way, it

    can do it.

    There is hope. (24)

    The decisions, the love and the

    dreams, like everything; it is something

    wonderful that step by step we learn. I

    want to believe that these words can

    contribute to this cause. (6)

  • I decided to write this book; and

    of insurance, you decided to read it. (1) (15/06/09)


  • The decision, it is the base of everything, I live. (1)

    The inevitable whim in which we are.

    The expression of our -full- freedom that we takes all the time, always; it is a

    decision. (2)

    What is elementary, sign of the power,

    the control; it is the decision. (2)

  • Almost always it is necessary -to

    decide- to be born again to find the

    salvation of us ourselves, or to

    appreciate the beauty and to see what

    really is, without suspicions nor to feel

    fears always again to experience what

    is the life. (9)

    A decision, it is an act of attention and

    consent. (94)

    We have to assume our responsibility

    of choosing and of defining our life, the

    biggest good that we have. (88)

    The opposite case will life us turn out

    to be foreign to us, an accident. (108)

  • It is difficult to find this proper

    personality and to support it; and not

    to say I am like that", but yes say I am changing" and it is wonderful. (94)

    A decision is an effect and definition

    -partly- of our affections, feelings and

    emotions. (114)

    The environment in which we live and

    our history in him, it predisposes us to

    choose and to actuate of certain ways

    before certain situations. More on

    having matured; our decisions, our

    actions and our life go from our

    conscience, our personal conviction,

    -own- control and the integration. (94)

  • A well-known action as a consequence,

    waits without exceptions, after each of our

    present actions. Nevertheless, the world

    and the people do not stop threatening

    with a consequence different from the one

    that each one had imagined. (88)

    There is important of the intelligence, the

    value and the help of others; us not to

    decide to retire. (89)

  • External forces exist, but what truly

    imports, is as one reacts -chooses and

    actuates- one personally before them.

    Yes it is possible to find exhilaration, in

    the middle of the despair. (95)

    We are limited by our senses, our brain,

    our culture, personal learning, the

    language and between other things

    more, the rules of the science.

    In the previous, as in everything, it is

    something about what we decide and

    allow. (52)

    About the possible thing is possible to

    decide, of the impossible thing also one

    can. Deciding is to tak
