About Me


not believe in missions


Paradoxically quiet and curious. And, always recycling myself... toward some kind of "lay spirituality". In other words: An "on Earth", Seeker.


Quiet the mind.
Serenity is te most important virtue.
Keep some solitude.
Be simple (and, please: To be simple, is not to deny the complexity, ok? One is not the opposite of the other).

The Yes-Sayer virtues:
Love the chaos.
Love the fluxus.
Love the Silence.

Start it. Finish it.
Be honest.
Lick the plates.
Life must be real, not an ideal.
We are nothing, but perpetual.
Sex is a sacred energy. Growing up our sensual consciousness is a continuous act of faith.
Amor fati.
Cooking is nice. Eat well.
Find your sense.
Be independent.
Watch your life in a long-short way.
Flirt the mistery (the mistery, the fantastic, the strange, the bizarre, the unknow. Watch the dark side of the moon).
Patience is the second most importante virtue.
Read Nietzsche.
Take breaks.


Buddhism. Hinduism. Taoism. Meditation. Mythology.
I like western philosophy, also. I like technology, reading, art, cinema... I really love nature, but urban eco too (it depends the light tonality).
Nietzsche, Deleuze, Cortázar... Fantastic literature....
My first movies are all about Fellini, Jodorowsky... the fantastic ones...
I don´t like night clubs (noise, noise, noise, crowd, crowd, crowd). But I like the night.
Actually, I am pretty interested in psychedelic and mind expansion experiences. It goes from entheogens to oriental practices of meditation.
It´s a major interest of mine, also, alternatives ways of living, I mean: Anything simple, eco-oriented, and out of the mainstream (I hope to move out, as soon as possible).
"Starting" on Yoga.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most beautiful thing I did in my life, was a psychedelic experience with Ayahuasca, the "vine of the Soul", in a Xamanic ritual.
That special and magical dimension will touch me forever.
Our mind is a very special and mysterious place.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can try to talk about philosophy... cinema... photography. I can think with you too. digital medias, web culture. Altered state of consciousness (practices, anthropological rituals, psychological considerations, etc)... Oriental philosophy, mythology...
We can talk about life, for sure.
