Feeling loved but feeling lonely.
Feeling loved for someone you ought to be but not for who you are. Not knowing who you are anymore.
Feeling loved but feeling like a trophy.
Staying just because there is love. Any kind of love. Just to love and be loved, but who do you love if you love the relationship but not you in the relationship?
Why should we care about politics when the analysis is so bleak? Why should we act collectively when messages are so negative and results so low?
“You only have to say what you have in front of your eyes and not to elude the conclusion” Invisible committee.
A critical look gives reasons for action. And an historical look reveals that each act of destruction calls for an act of creation.
There is a demon in each of us.
Fearing the demon inside us
will only make it
Stronger and scarier…
Anchored. We are. Together.
Anchored in my body and my memories. You will be. Always.
Anchored together forever. We will never know.
But this fear should not anchor us in dark words and moments.
Why do you become an activist?
You do not become an activist. A situation turns you into an activist.
An unbearable moment which you can not ignore, avoid or bypass.
Now. Us. Only now!

Relying on current intuitions to understand love.
Projections into a common future might reassure. But they do not explain what can only be felt.
According to Vasconcelos, emotions are an essential factor of knowledge.
Trust. What we all want.
But how do you define it?
Trust that someone does not lie?
That he/she will do what you expect him/her to do? It never happens.
Trust that you share common values?
That he/she is a better person than you? It is impossible.
There is clarity in opposition
A common divisive point
Don`t just oppose and hate
Oppose and learn
Yesterday, Che Guevara, Gandhi, Comandante Marcos. Political icons.
Today, brands without political messages.
Is marketing to blame or our feeling of disempowerment?
Or the icon. He or she is there to do the job for us: no need to get out of our comfort and ignorance.
But if political messages are not being shared and understood, the emptiness of brands prevail.
Octavio Paz “The revolutionary is always radical, he does not long to correct abuses, but the uses themselves”
“Freedom is freedom of being, not freedom of having” – Ugo Mattei
We have a limited amount of resources left. Why don’t we share?
Nature and people must come first.
Without them, you can have it all but you will be nothing.
Freedom comes with responsibility
