The strength is in the habit of overcoming difficulties. As a gift of our spirit, becomes a force that resists and rushes as the need of the hour. It is an incredible value to those who attend the hardest trances of life, for it is necessary to generate that energy inside us in order to face the difficulties, challenges and efforts that life poses continuously, and we can not escape, and we shall endure pain, discomfort, overcome the bad times, dominate fatigue, tiredness, sadness.

The strength is the ability to make efforts without complaining, without feeling threatened by the problems, and then we can overcome fears, endure fatigue, deterrents to any suffering or misfortune. This requires the courage to overcome all the obstacles that are opposed to the pursuit of good, knowing to undertake what should be done. However, the classical philosophers did not hesitate to assert that the principal act of fortitude is to know how to resist. But I think it's better to remove it from our self, because if we do not get a solution to the problem we do not win anything leaving it dormant and worrying.

All human beings without exception have weaknesses, scholastic education has contributed to a teeming multitude, that has not been brought up to strength, and their life is altered to the slightest contradiction to their tastes, their welfare, their comfort, is so we have to learn to master ourselves, so that later we will not be defeated by life. It is necessary to create the Mental adaptability to different circumstances, whatever the means by which it is achieved either resting, thinking, talking, playing, maturing, with optimism, everyone has their means and must use the more appropriate, but all these means to achieve the strength, always consist of an adaptation of the mind.

The fortress covers three main areas:

a) Undertake surmountable difficulties
b) Resist patiently what seems insuperable, not to be overcome by sadness at the physical or spiritual suffering
c) Remain firm for the duration of the effort, be constant, which is the virtue that leads us to carry out what is necessary to achieve the goals we have set, despite external or internal difficulties, or decreased motivation for the time. Constancy is based on a strong willpower and in a continuing effort to reach the proposed goal, overcoming the difficulties and even overcome ourselves.

Also important is the personal ideal, that captures what we really are, the impulses are channeled and gives direction to a specific mission, that is to say helps us to know ourselves and we know that tasks performed to achieve a goal. The personal ideal unites ideas gives more strength, so that our life is organized and have consistency. That ideal turn has two currents: the ideal of being, and the ideal of doing. We all walk through these two paths to get to a good port.

The ideal of being: is that everyone must find "what disrupts our lives." What are the inclinations, tenderness, happiness. When you know what impels it, recognizes the gift that enriches the whole being. This gift transforms all that we are psychologically, gives healing and vigor, to know where to go.  Who found this treasure that holds within our being and personality, is holding the root of personal ideal that guides our lives to magnanimity, is a saying that we have a great spirit, a large and generous heart, you wonder every day What else I can do?, because it seeks to be given without measure.

The ideal of acting are all actions that we face as citizens, professionals, families, striving in our abilities, whether intellectual, physical, moral and spiritual. To fulfill these tasks the human being discovers their mission. That call that is made to each and to consecrate all their efforts putting into play the skills and gifts that nature has given him the benefit of others.

When you know the ideal in personal life, you  discover that exalts you  because we realize that everyone has value as a person. Do not confuse this feeling with the pride and arrogance that seeks personal greatness and takes us away from humility. This greatness is closely linked to the way we are, because we have to be grateful for the gifts and talents that nature gave us. And that's the difference from one person to another, personal experience that does not belong to the mass, the flock.

We all want to be strong, but that it does not happens overnight, we must go slowly. To achieve the strength you have to be strong and intensify our gifts, knowledge and skills, as otherwise we are weak. Also we have to anticipate difficulties, because when you want something good you always find them. If you imagine the difficulties  before, you will lose your fear of them, and when adversity comes you are going to have a better  way to resolved it, if you are taking by surprise. We also must embrace the little annoyances of daily life with magnanimous attitude such as cold, heat, pain, problems, ingratitude, criticism of others, things do not go as we want. This is the only way to becoming strong in spirit, in the painful moments such as a serious illness, a death, a tragedy, a big temptation. All these actions that we find it hard to realize are strengthening more our fortitude.


The pressure of the society in which we live directs us to think that problems are always an essential part of our lives and forces us to live with torture,  tribulations of not having an internal peace that allows us to be happy and cheerful. Without knowing that the nature has provided each of us with the aptitude necessary to knock down in a simple and rapid way these mental barriers, real psychic obstacles that limit or invalidate our innate aptitude for solving them.
R/Emerson was reflecting: "Life consists about what a human being thinks”. If you think about the success, you create a spiritual climate that makes the success possible. If you think about the defeat, already you are more close to it. These intellectual shackles do not have tangible existence, it is necessary to try to suppress them for means purely spiritual. To obtain this result, I use the universal principles, their applications have relieved and recovered, across the ages thousands of generations. Is the message that will provide an instrument of enormous efficacy to solve our conflicts that are neither big nor small, but it depends on the grade of worry that you give to it.

Four are the fearsome enemies of our inner  peace, and almost always, one of them projects its ominous shade in our lives already troubled by some problem.

Resentment. Many are the messages that I get on my emaill telling me about people who is convinced that the author of their woes is someone other than themselves, and their state of mind is boiling for the heat produces a repressed anger. That resentment crying to get out of the chest is very damaging to the person who feeds it with the object that serves oas fuel. the burden of ill will exhaust the energies of the strongest. Prevents all communication conciliatory. It's very difficult to get neutralize those feelings, you have to be at a high level to achieve it and forget it. There is only one remedy for resentment: forgiveness. Sometimes it can take a long time to forgive because there failed efforts to eliminate this poison.

Guilt and remorse. A hidden or cloaked remorse, does not vanish by itself. we are filling it digs into the consciousness of anxiety and fear. The only way to get rid of this terrible host is sincerely repent of what we have done, make firm purpose of amendment, apologize and repair, to the same extent of the damage inflicted, if any, and directly or indirectly solicit forgiveness to the offended person. The damage of guilt and remorse we must bury deeply or forget. Once buried guilt and remorse the person regains peace of soul.

Lack or absence of self confidence. It is important to open all the strengths and values, and the best way to resolve the conflicts is to help others settle their own. Be useful improve your self image  and perseverance in believing that you can solve everything, so will sink deep into your spirit twilight corners, where slowly but surely drive out the self-doubt. Not always easy. In this world there is nothing more difficult than changing a way of thinking, but it is possible. I know because I've seen many succeed in this arduous undertaking.

Very often attach excessive importance to potential problems that can arise. Why not use all our energy to achieve our goals, rather than spend it worrying about what might happen? Act without fear! Minimizes risks, and do not allow fear stop you. So everything that we dream or think culminate in success. The mind does not really know the difference between something imagined and something real. There you will have overcome fear and raise your self-esteem. The confidence is an assertion that we believe in our own decisions and actions. The confidence is never inherited, it is learned. Self-esteem includes subjective assessment that someone does. It is being aware of one's own values ​​and with that awareness we can trust our ability. Although to know what we are capable is essential self-knowledge.

Worry. This fourth enemy is more commonplace. The worry as certain wise man said, is a persistent thread of muddy water that runs through the spirit. "If we are not careful," he adds, "it will dig wide channel which will go in all our thoughts."   During so many years we received millions of negative messages in the media and it seems to take away hope from people living at the foot of slopes and slaves of the ups and downs of the lives of others, to co-workers , neighbors, a world of terror around us if we follow these speculations of trouble. The truth is, that most of the disasters and calamities are produce by ourselves with our fears and ideas that imprison us, but if we are positive nothing will happen no calamity never stumble and that is worse condition our live.

A remedy that advocates against excessive worries is having a clear idea of ​​the emotional and physical damage that worries can cause us. The constant and acutely worries affects our circulation, heart, nervous system and glandular. Not die gripped by doubt.  So we have to take life in a sport way  enjoying all around us, doing what we like without concerns, changing the tone of our inner life, having faith in our potential and qualities without anticipate events, that's the best medicine I know for worries and to find inner serenity.

Problems and more problems, and always problems. The world will continue running over them, but you should not complain or despair because you're not going to solve them worrying, but getting sick. Throw from your spirit mistrust, resentment, regret and the continued concern and you will be amazed to see how confidence will come to replace it, the compassion that forgives, the faith that illuminates and gives joyful serenity. And there you  give to your life great victories and glorious achievements.



It says that while there beside me anyone who suffers; I have no right to think of my own happiness. These words sound good, but are fallacious. They look real, but deep down, are wrong. The first observation of the human mystery, jump to our eyes like a series of evidence as these: the beloved feel love, only beloved can love. The beloved can not stop loving.

Instead, people that are suffering make others suffer. The failures need bother and throw their darts at those who succeed. The spiteful people flood their vital environment with bitter resentment. Only feel happy when they can see that everything goes wrong, then we all losers. The failure of others is their relief for own failures, and are compensated for their frustrations with the defeats of others, and  they scattering to the four winds negative news often distorted and magnified. A frustrated person is truly frightening.

The people who are controversial in the family or at work, being perpetually a thorn and fire for the others, are so because they are in eternal conflict with themselves. They do not accept anybody because are not accepted by their own self. They sow divisions and hate around them because they hated themselves. We will make the others happy to the extent that we are happy. The only way to truly love your neighbor is reconciling with yourself, accepting and loving serenely what you are.

The prescript “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” Constitutes a high ideal, and is necessary to start for loving ourselves.  On this matter some may argue that is being selfish. To affirm this, without major nuances, remains as superficiality. Indeed find ourselves without another purpose than to be happy, would be equivalent to be enclosed in a narrow circle of a maternal womb. If someone looks wildly for his own happiness, making it the last purpose of their existence, is fatally destined to death, like Narcissus; and death means solitude, sterility, emptiness, sadness. In its last instances, the egoism advances always accompanied and illuminated for tragic resplendence; selfishness is equal to death, that is to say, the egoism always finishes in desolation.

To be happy means, specifically to suffer less. As the suffering sources dry off, the heart begins to fill with pleasure and freedom. And to feel alive constitutes already, without much ado, a small inebriation; but the suffering ends up by blocking this inebriation.  After all, there is no other choice but this: suffer or live. The suffering makes the human suffer an agony. Eliminating suffering,the human being the human being, automatically recommences to live, to enjoy that happiness that we call life. As we manage to pull up the roots of the sorrow and pains, it raises the thermometer of the inebriation and of the vital pleasure. To live, without much ado, is already to be happy.

And if we achieve that people can live, the expansive force of this vital pleasure will release joy to the fellow men/woman with spring resplendence and concrete commitments, and this way we are managing the new man, reconciling with the suffering, unite with the pain, pilgrim towards freedom and love.


No virtue can work without this vast space in itself


The silence can not exist if there is no sound, reason why is necessary to make the exercise of silence to reach the sound. Silence has a particularity, to force the person to observe the thoughts and to know the inner self. Therefore this mystery is not discovered in the world, is found and it is learned in the heart of the humans who seek to improve their existence. Silence, although seems strange to say, can help the human beings to find answers to our own mystery.

There are three types of silence:

- The physical silence that consists of not speaking and strictly not to generate noise.
- Mental silence is reduced not to think.
- Spiritual silence is to get at total silence to find the field of the supreme manifestation.-

The steps to find silence are: Silence like an exercise; and the meditation.

The first step is silence by the silence, we need the willpower to execute it. It is to learn to control the exact handling of the words. In order to achieve this silence is necessary to concentrate the attention in elements more subtle almost imperceptible the ones we are not accustomed to listen, like the heart beating, the crack of the floors, the breathing, etc.

The other step is to be silent to listen: If we are in the magnanimous nature and we chose to remain silent and to suspend all human action and show a humility and respect that we are going to learn to listen the messages of the nature through the wind, the water, the trees. All this constitutes a food to our spirit to feel the pure messages without prejudices and intentions.

The third is meditation: It is a step beyond silence in itself. No longer it is a food for the soul but it constitutes the divine essence. The meditation allows us to realize physical silence and mental silence, where is no longer the will, but exist a bigger force that makes us to be in silence in our mind. In that moment we must accept the thoughts as a river, we have flowing ideas until comes a time that only silent and energy flows.

The concentration of the energy and the attention in the soul, without apprehension, desires, without anxieties, let that energy become essential. The life that we have has little solitude, but the same is loaded of pains, sorrow, conflicts, joys, but we become insensible because we are never complete alone, since we are tied to yesterday, to the memory; and we took these loads that do not allow us to leave the past, and only when we confronted and we solve at the precise moment we arrived at the solitude. It is important to reach the loneliness and give importance to this space in the search of the virtues and the freedom.

No virtue can work without this vast space in itself, silence is necessary to us to touch our inner self we need that big space , without any experience, influences, that is to say we must be empty, - vessel must be empty to be fill with the new-, and our quiet spirit has the ability of being clear. The unique goal is to generate a state of mind able to dominate the thinking and if we do not settle down true foundations against the fear, pain, anxiety we will not be able to have a free spirit of self-torture.

The space and silence are necessary to go beyond the limitations of brings back to consciousness. The question is; How an active spirit can be in calm? We can mold it, chasing an ideal that consists of having a calmed spirit. but has no effect if we act with rigor as it becomes stagnant. Exercising control in any form is repression, that is to say a conflict is exerted, and most of our lives are disciplined by the outside pressures of the society, the family, sufferings, experiences, our conformism to an ideology and its structure. These disciplines are fatal, we must avoid them through eliminating the repressions and fears.

Again we asked ourselves. How to do it? This is not like to discipline ourselves and soon to acquire the freedom. The freedom must be at the beginning and not at the end. To understand is to be free of the conformism. The same act of learning is discipline, that is to say becomes clearer to understand the nature of the things and the whole structure.

Silence allows the encounter with ourselves, is one step to another level of sound, more harmonious, thus silence can not be described, like everything known can be describe, the only way to get rid of the well-known is dying every day, so that the cells of the brain are always fresh and innocent, But this quality is not only of the beauty of silence, this silence is a small beginning as if you move from a cave towards the immensity of the ocean and we cannot understand it verbally but we have understood the structure of consciousness.




De Vinci the genius. A man who left in his paintings symbolics signs, gestures and veiled tracks that allude to hidden messages, a reserved legacy to those who assumes the challenge to decipher their symbolism.

The metaphysics that sustains his work The Last Supper, led to his invention of the technique of chiaroscuro-modeling of the forms by contrast between light and shadow, and the sfumato, consisting of eliminating the lines, diluting them in a kind of fog that produces an illusion effect of immersion in the material reality.

This atmospheric perspective - the landscaping backgrounds of his pictures are another constant of his work, also it was learned for the great Renaissance masters, Rafael, Sanzio and Andrea the Sarto. His method of composition - that reaches the summit with The Last Supper already announces in his precocious adoration of the wizards. The latest painting cannot be understood without his legacy and achievement.

Mary Magdalene or John?

Many students of the symbolism play with this question, indicating that in the painting the essential bread or chalice is not there. It is possible to be interpreted that the chalice absence implies that Maria is the saint Grail inverted. Leonardo da Vinci communicates in this work his conviction that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and were the founders of the Merovingia dynasty in France.

That she was going to be the leader of his Church. That Peter did not approve it, and that she was the authentic Saint Grail. The question in what is the base of this asseveration? It explains to us: that the personage who has considered John is in fact Mary Magdalene; by the position of Jesus and Maria forming a “M”; by a hand without body, supposedly the one of Peter, that uses a knife; and because there is no chalice: so the chalice must be Mary. Leonardo meant with this interpretation that his descendants are to his right.

The real problem is the result of our lack of familiarity with the “types”. In his Treaty of the Painting, Leonardo explains that each personage must be painted in accordance with their age and condition. A wise man has certain characteristics, old woman others and the children another. A classic type, like in many pictures of the Renaissance, is the “student”. The favorite, the proteges are always very young men, totally shaved and of long hair, in order to transmit the idea that not yet they have matured, not sufficient enough to have their way. Throughout the Renaissance, the artists painted thus to Saint John. They always represented him like a beardless young person, without the strong and resolute appearance of the man.

Another meaning

It is important to know that the Master studied the translation done by Ficino of the Asclepios, given work to Hermes Trismegisto, in which it was taught how the priests of the Pharaohs gave life to the statues of their temples and Da Vinci applied those techniques in his great work. Javier Sierra range, in his book Secret Supper, confirms the distribution of the disciples of the Cenacle. There are four groups of a three, to represent the four elements of nature, and he even assigns to each of them a specific zodiacal sign. Thus to Simon - who is to the right end of the table corresponds Aries. To Thaddeus, Taurus. To Mark, Gemini. The sign of Cancer is for Philip, for James the Major. Virgo for Thomas. And the balance of Libra for John or Magdalene, has an important symbolic here, when considering to the (a) young like an element adjuster of the future church. Scorpion for Judas, Sagittarius for Peter, Capricorn for Andrew, Aquarius for James the Minor and Pisces for Bartholomew. Each disciple have a correspond answer and Jesus in the center incarnates the ideal of the sun. It is a talisman work.

Also according to the distribution, Da Vinci assigns a letter to each disciple who is seated in the divine table. John and James occupy the places that Christ promised to them. along to Philip, Sapient among the twelve, the only one who pointed out himself, telling where we need to find our salvation. The remaining group of apostles was solved with identical rapidity. Mateo, the disciple whose name, means “gift of promptness", already augured a quick outcome.

And Leonardo baptized like Nevus, the diligent one. His letter added to the Omega of the Taddeo formed a legible syllable already “N-O”. then add to it C , the resulting panorama felt like an evocative: four groups of three letters, with a vowel always in center and an enormous one to presiding over the scene let themselves read a stranger and forgotten magical formula MUIT NEM TO the NOC. That extracted of an Egyptian text its means Mut, wife of Amon “the Hidden one”, the great God of the Pharaohs. But as Leonardo da Vinci always wrote the other way around, and is necessary to read reflecting it in the mirror, means IT CONSOLE A-MEN-TUM, like the knot of the table cloth. The secret of the 13 personages represented in his painting incarnates the thirteen letters of the Consolamentrum, unique sacrament admitted by the pure men (the Cataros), an invisible, intimate spiritual sacrament.
