[295] ... viver a vida que imaginamos

(Charlie Bobo, Anatomy of a Dream)


Com a minha experiência aprendi pelo menos isto: se uma pessoa avançar confiantemente na direcção dos seus sonhos, se se esforçar por viver a vida que imaginou, há-de deparar com um êxito inesperado nas horas rotineiras. Há-de deixar para trás uma porção de coisas e atravessar uma fronteira invisível; leis novas, universais e mais abertas começarão por se estabelecer em redor e dentro dela; ou então, as leis velhas hão-de ser expandidas e interpretadas a seu favor num sentido mais liberal, e há-de viver com a aquiescência de uma ordem superior de seres. À medida que ela simplificar a sua vida, as leis do universo hão-de parecer-lhe menos complexas, a solidão deixará de ser solidão, a pobreza deixará de ser pobreza, a fraqueza deixará de ser fraqueza. Se construístes castelos no ar, não terá sido em vão esse vosso trabalho; porque eles estão onde deviam estar. Agora, por baixo, colocai os alicerces». [...] (H.D. Thoreau, Walden ou A vida nos bosques, Antígona, Lisboa, 1999, 351)

Curiosidades e coincidencias entre as boas Almas e as boas Filosofias
como é o teu caso J.Serra

Vale a pena tambem visitar o site por causa das fotografias muito, muito luminosas e expressivas, se bem que em relação a estas filosofias demasiado comercializadas na net receie algo de inexplicavel

Inner and Outer Life

A talk by Sri Chinmoy on the respective roles of the inner life and the outer life.

Our philosophy does not negate either the outer life or the inner life. Most human beings negate the inner life. They feel that the inner life is not important as long as they can exist on earth. Again, there are a few who think that the outer life is not necessary. They feel that the best thing is to enter into the Himalayan caves and lead a life of solitude, since the outer life is so painful and full of misunderstanding.

We do not believe in living either a life of solitude or an ordinary human life - the so-called modern life that depends on machines and not on the inner reality, the soul. We try to synthesize and harmonise the outer life and the inner life. The outer life is like a beautiful flower and the inner life is its fragrance. If there is no fragrance, then we cannot appreciate the flower. Again, if there is no flower, how can there be any fragrance? So the inner life and the outer life must go together.

The body is like a temple and the soul or inner reality is like the shrine inside the body-temple. If the temple does not have a shrine, then we cannot appreciate the temple. Again, if we do not keep the temple in good condition, then how can we take proper care of the shrine? We have to keep the body fit, and for this, running is of considerable help. If we are physically fit, then we will be more inspired to get up early in the morning to meditate. True, the inspiration to meditate comes from within, but if we are healthy, then it will be much easier for us to get up at five or six o'clock to pray and meditate. In this way the inner life is being helped by the outer life. Again, if we are inspired to get up early to meditate, then we will also be able to go out and run. Here we see that the outer life is being helped by the inner life.
