"Bridging the Gap: Exploring the Reasons Behind Our Differences"

In today's society, it often feels like we are more divided than ever before. Political polarization, social issues, and differing beliefs seem to drive us further apart. But why is this the case? Understanding the root causes of division can help us work towards unity and mutual understanding.


We are divided because everything on this planet fuels separation. In yoga we call Maya , this reality in which we live and yogis understood this thousands of years ago. That separation from the source, from our Creator, from the Universe, call it whatever you want, is our deepest wound.


We have come to this world to heal our wounds and currently we are divided. Our soul needs the guidance of our mind and heart to reach the connection with the infinite.


The society we live in reflects this personal division. We all live with that neurosis.


Despite pain and suffering, there is a feeling called "Longing"; It is the longing for union, from the limited to the unlimited. The amazing and miraculous thing is that our soul remembers and can experience that infinite love, that true union.



Mother Earth is the womb where we can be reborn.

She helps us remember what is essential: that we are part of a whole, that our souls are connected in an invisible fabric that unites all of creation. On this journey of healing and transformation , we must remember that love and unity are the very essence of our existence. Through connection with Mother Earth, we can find the healing and renewal we seek. It is in his lap that we find the strength and wisdom to move forward, always remembering that union with the infinite begins from within each of us. May this longing for union inspire us to live from love and compassion in every moment of our existence!


The Mind


To achieve that Union you must conquer your Mind. If you conquer your Mind you conquer the Universe. And that is learned, practiced daily and with patience,

you can conquer greed, hatred, ties, ego. With truth, compassion, contentment, humility and love.


All virtues that we come to learn here.


So my question to you is what do you do in your daily life to get closer to those virtues?

In the practice of yoga, we learn to embrace the uniqueness of each individual while recognizing the interconnectedness that binds us all. Just as different yoga poses serve various purposes but ultimately contribute to the same goal of well-being, our differences in perspectives, beliefs, and backgrounds enrich the tapestry of humanity.


By approaching differences with curiosity and compassion, we can uncover the underlying similarities that unite us. Through mindfulness and self-reflection, we begin to understand that our diversity is not a barrier but a source of strength. In the harmonious symphony of life, each note, each voice, no matter how distinct, has a vital role to play.



Sacred songs


Sacred songs are musical expressions that have a deep spiritual or religious meaning. They are used in various religious and spiritual traditions around the world to connect people with the divine, their inner being, and the universe as a whole. These songs usually have lyrics that convey messages of peace, love, gratitude, hope and unity, and are often accompanied by melodies and rhythms that induce meditation, contemplation and spiritual elevation.


The connection that sacred songs can create with the soul is deep and meaningful. By listening to, singing, or participating in these chants, people can experience a sense of inner peace, connection with something larger than themselves, and harmony with the universe. Sacred songs have the power to raise the spiritual and emotional vibration of those who practice them, helping them find comfort, inspiration, healing and renewal in times of difficulty or search for meaning in life.


Sacred songs are a powerful tool to connect with our deepest essence and with the sacred that lives in each of us.

Song of Namo Avalokiteshvaraya


Avalokiteśvara ( Sanskrit : अवलोकितेश्वर; lit. "Lord Who Looks Down") is the bodhisattva of compassion . He is one of the most widely revered bodhisattvas in mainstream Mahāyāna Buddhism , as well as unofficially in the t heravāda .


A few years ago I discovered this song in Plum Village, which touched my heart and my love. I leave you the explanation of the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh :


"When monastics chant the name Avalokitesvara for the first time, they return to themselves and try to touch the suffering within them. When they chant and chant the name for the second time, they realize the suffering of the people around them. And when They sing it and sing it for the third time, they get in touch with the suffering of the world.


There are many places in the world where people suffer very deeply. Not only because of the war; due to separation, due to natural disasters. They also suffer from social injustice or oppression and violence. They suffer from difficult relationships and so on.


The practice of listening to the sufferer is to give the opportunity for compassion to arise.

When compassion arises, you feel better, you suffer less. It can happen veryquickly. That is the practice of mindfulness of suffering. You are aware of your own suffering. You are aware of the other person's suffering. Mindfulness of suffering will bring compassion and understanding.




As we breathe in harmony with the universe, let us honor our differences as threads woven together in the grand design of existence. Let us bridge the gap between us, not by erasing what makes us unique, but by celebrating the beauty of our diverse tapestry. In this way, we can truly embody the essence of unity in diversity and embrace the richness that comes from exploring the reasons behind our differences.


In those moments when you feel like you can't take it anymore...


Remember...

Be patient, everything will be better.

Have courage, you are stronger than you think.

And Love yourself!!


Peace in your home

Peace in your mind

Peace in your heart

Peace in your soul


We are ALCHEMISTS of pain in Love today and always.

Infinite blessings,
