Useful tip: Before you start reading observe the picture for 5 seconds.

Einstein once said: “Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one ”. What we think as reality, in fact, is just an interpretation of it.

The reality we experience — in scientific terms — is the compound of our senses’ ability to notice the world’s phenomena and our mind to perceive those happenings while filtering them with our beliefs. Let me explain.

Our mind is very complex and has a huge potential we haven’t explored yet at all. As humans, using this god-sent tool, our brain, we can…


Even if we think we do know, in fact, we don’t know anything about us.

One day, as you’re slightly opening your eyes, you find yourself crying to your mother’s breast. The moment after, you set forth a journey to discover the world. Using your baby-brain you start interacting with strange environments while trying to categorize all the things you grasp into simple boxes such as good or bad.

By the day we’ve been born, we keep learning new things. At first, we learn how to talk and how to walk. As soon as we’ve grown up a little more we learn how to imagine, how to communicate our thoughts, and how to express our feelings. — all these learnings are considered as innate abilities. Of course, this process happens unconsciously, no one takes you by the hand to show you how to exhibit your love or how to dream.

Most of us, tend to separate the word “skill ”from “ability”. An ability is something that you learn but…

A narrative is a coherence of beliefs that creates a story in our minds. We use these stories to shape our realities. According to Owen Flanagan, a leading consciousness researcher: “Evidence strongly suggests that humans in all cultures come to cast their own identity in some sort of narrative form. We are inveterate storytellers.”

We create stories. Culture is a product of the cohesion of hundreds of little stories, an assemblage of hundreds of narratives.

There are many examples of narratives. Racism is a classic phenomenon that derives from “non-healthy” narratives. Patriarchy was one of them but it has faded…

What’s the meaning of life? I’m too young to know you might say, I haven’t seen a lot. How could I? But who has anyway?

From the moment I stepped into adulthood, I desired to explore the world, to dive deep into the sanctuaries of human experience. I wanted to see how it looks like to love someone, chase a dream, find a passion — things that make life unique.

Because after all, those things are independent of age. You can investigate them as much in your twenties as in your fifties. The point though is, that the moment you…

It’s been a year and a half since I’ve started this journey of self-actualization, and by now my life has moved completely in another direction.

From being a shy introvert, I’ve become a confident extroverted person who meets a lot of people and gravitates attention quite often. Furthermore, from being a people pleaser, I began to stand up more for myself which inevitably provoked some conflicts.

All this inner-change brought me into a new world with unknown situations and different kinds of people that I needed to deal with. Hence, I started to get confused. …

“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.” -Voltaire

We go through our lives searching for something to complete us, to make us happier. Having as our compass pleasure, we set forth a life journey to collect as much of it as we can.

However, most of us get lost in that search for happiness. We get tangled in the short term. We acquire money that we pointlessly spend consuming, and we meet people with whom we create nothing strong. Our life’s experience remains on a surface level…
