It is what it is.
…they no longer felt like newlyweds, and even less like belated lovers. It was as if they had lept over the arduous calvary of conjugal life and gone straight to the heart of love. They were together in silence like an old married couple wary of life, beyond the pitfalls of passion, beyond the brutal mockery of hope and the phantoms of disillusion: beyond love. For they had lived together long enough to know that love was always love, anytime and anyplace, but it was more solid the closer it came to death.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, from “Love in the Time of Cholera“
For the Holy Week, here is a good book to read recommended by a young man who I love and respect so much. The young man is my teacher and my son.

A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle Oprah Winfrey’s boldest book choice to date. The title says it all “AWAKENING TO YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE, TO PAVE THE WAY FOR A NEW EARTH“.
I’ve been introduced to this concept of metaphysical principles 7 months ago. And then, a succession of stark and profound realizations came pouring down; I’ve lived my life so “unconsciously” (naively, stupidly, etc.) and for the longest time, I was never the type to question what is given, taught or passed on. But, with these principles came empowerment, content, joy , gratitude and deep appreciation of my life and ALL the people who are in it.
I hope everyone who gets the chance to read this post, would go get the book and read it. If you haven’t noticed our world is at a state of madness (hahahaha), to say the least.
I end this post with one of my favorite quote, “The truth of who you are is not ‘I AM THIS‘ or ‘I AM THAT‘. But ‘I AM‘”.- Eckhart Tolle.
