Honor!

This world is Lost! There is no Honor, no code of honor. I ain't mean it in a religious way. Just the strictly honorable sense.
A human being without Honor is not a human; simply a beast that only satisfy his/hers instincts.
This was without a doubt one of my personal catharsis! I am just sick of people that sell themselves as "honorable" when is obvious they have no idea what it means to be honorable and behave accordingly.
What happened to the times when a man was banished from society for his lack of honor? Nowadays society reverence the ones that have no honor!

I took this picture a few years back at Notre Dame de Paris. It means a lot to me. For me represents the light and darkness inside all of us. My dear gargoyle!
It's a shame how we are walking away from our moral principles.

The sacrifice of the Self

The maximum ideal under the religious points of view is the sacrifice of the self. Many New Age movements talk about become one with the "consciousness" (See Deepak Chopra). Communism also asks us to sacrifice the individuality for the Collectivity.

That sounds interesting, even fascinating; but, can I really stop to be me?

These are questions and answers that belong to esoteric and theological fields. With the exception of Communism, which was a clear failure (Collectivism only brought poverty, death, famine etc..).

But back to me, can I become something else without being me first? Without knowing who I am?
Isn't this the inner conflict and struggle we face every day?

If we do not belong to ourselves first we can't belong to anyone or anything else; much less become something we are not. First we must find out who we are, what we want and try to be the best of us.

Many people live this life constantly thinking about death. With the illusion to become one, to merge with the supreme being, divinity, consciousness etc., leaving the self behind.
Is that a way of living? What about now and today? I am alive, and as long as I am I will value and cherish, my individuality, my life, my liberty, myself and I do not feel comfortable thinking that I will become one with someone or something else. Something that is not yet clear who or what is it. Stop thinking about the hereafter and concentrate on living today, in the now.

Learn to live a full life and become a better you.
