About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Social Experiments

ABOUT ME

Freedom of the outcome is the most beautiful thing. I strive for it. To be my own source of good energy is forever the goal.Self-amusement is key.

Don't be mislead by my low couchrequest response.
I will respond the good ones but I can't just be bothered by replying shitty requests anymore.

PHILOSOPHY

Dont follow and believe your bad thoughts.Regardless,you're not your thoughts.Danger is real,fear is completely optional.Dont rely on external stability to make you feel good inside.The world is unstable,all there is is now.Have goals,but don't set it as a means to an end.Experience achieving the goal,but live the now,live the journey.If your now is supposedly not good,associate what is causing you pain to pleasure.Do it as much as you can.Know what it is,what is causing it and then change your belief or the situation.Regardless,all there is, is now.The conciousness.The space for the now and alert attention.No self,no problem.You are no thing.You're not a thought,those are all conditioning of the mind,you're deeper I is the appreciation for everything and thoughtless space.Give attention to the body,not your mind.
What changes you is not the result that you get,but the actions that you take.
Embrace the hussle.Learn,improve yourself,grow.Fucking read good books.Read at least one a week.
Every hard situation is just another opportunity to build more character...

I always try to remember that a simple hello can lead to a million things...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It has been a chaos, and it has been great.

Interests

-Record an album with my naked tracks

-Learn everything I can about wines in a near future.

-Be fluent in spanish.

-Currently I can memorize a sequence of a whole deck around 5 minutes.I've been kind of obsessed with mnemonic techinques and I've been trying to improve them regularly.It would be great to discuss Loci and PAO systems, specially for written text memorization.
