~AN OPEN HEART
OPEN MORE DOORS THAN ANY OTHER KEY IN LIFE ~.
Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World and it will one day return there.
~Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist~.
Tell me one last thing," said Harry. "Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
- ALBUS DUMBLEDORE-
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. MATTHEW 6:21.
SURFERS: You are so welcome in wherever I live now, I will do my best for you, even if I can not host you. I will try to help you as much as I can. I study at the university and work at the same time, and also travel. But I really want to get time for you to know you and grow up with you.
—🏻——Please, read “my home section”.——🏻——
Hosts: Thanks for reading my profile. If you are willing to offer me your place, Feel free to contact me and ask me all about my trip and plans, I usually don’t have many plans, and change them According to what my heart is telling me. I am hoping to know you! Thanks for your hospitality!
Trying to learn magic.
Dear Couchsurfer, this poem written by me is a humble introduction of my way to see the life, I hope you consider it worthy of your valuable time.
My name is Nacho, and I define myself
as a continuously learning being,
learning to love, learning to live,
learning from you, and learning from me,
Life is becoming for me,
this paradoxical teacher,
Who is always teaching us how to life.
Their best assistant? Suffering and peace,
One without the other, can not coexist.
But how Beautiful is it!
That always that we suffer,
there are two ways to pick,
The first one? Put new Lawyers on your heart
to see the life like a film,
Where nothing will affect us,
And sufferings are illusions,
That we imagine in a dream.
The other daring way, is only for those fearless beings,
those who may wonder of suffering,
as long as they can learn from it.
It consists on opening your heart,
until you find in yourself,
a better human being,
then suffering find a sense,
the sense of learning to live.
You will never be the same after this.
But is staying the same in any case the option for me?
Perhaps now I will appreciate happiness in another way,
opening my heart to those,
who live the suffering as I did,
and find the real way to be happy,
Live for others, and not for me.
Share my life, and give my being.
Nothing better than my love, time, happiness is this,
to give others,
the opportunity to see,
And find this hidden way,
of trusting in life and in humanity.
Choosing the way of being yourself, in spite of society, and seek for your real mean,
The meaning of life which is,
Maybe living for love,
opening your heart to the stranger,
Despite all your wounds,
find the hope in the heart,
of every human being.
Because no one can teach us to live,
But learning together, is the way that Life presented to me,
So welcome to Couchsurfing,
My great brother or sis,
this daring and genuine adventure,
For sharing the mean,
Sharing your life, your time and destiny,
Helping the others,
maybe we all came to this.
And maybe it’s is better together,
To find the mission we all seek,
The meaning of our lifes,
the meaning of our beings.
By Nacho Agüera, thanks for your time!
——————ARE YOU NEW IN COUCHSURFING?🧡——————WHAT IS CS? 🧡————————————————
🧡It is way to grow up and help the other at the same time, open your heart and your mind and SHARE YOUR LIFE (quality time) to live the most authentic, local and transforming experiences while traveling.
Just be respectful with the other and let life surprise you!
🧡 You can ask me about my experiences with Couchsurfing, and more about this amazing world, it is normal to have thousands of questions at the beginning, I am here to help you.
——————TO KNOW ME BETTER ———————
🧳I am a highly passionate about exploring every corner of this world with my backpack.
I am a person of contrasts: I love feeling the world, feeling every corner of it, feel I’m at home whereever I go. I love slow traveling but also see places non stop for 24 hours. I love enjoying silence for hours but also assisting Couchsurfing meetings with a lot of people.
🥾I suffered a lot after 2 years of a relationship with my ex-girlfriend and I decided to seek for myself in the world, that’s why I started traveling. At the beginning it was a way to scape from my reality, after it became in my way of living. Thanks to this suffering, now I am the person who I am.
Thanks to traveling as a backpacker, Couchsurfing have taught me more than every book I have readen. I have found a bit of myself in every place I have visited, and in every person I have known.
Now my life consists on breaking my mind-limits and live new adventures every day.
—————— MY PHILOSOPHY ————————
A life with no passion is not a life. If you are not passionate for living take a backpack, and see what happens. Seek this passion in the world, out of your securities, trust on life, You only need a bit of hope, you will find the rest on the way. People will tell you that you are crazy, but only crazy people arrive to the places that no one has arrived before, and you could find something much bigger than your securities there. Maybe the meaning of your life.
Pronoia: state of mind that is the opposite of paranoia, the belief that universe or God is conspiring in your favor, everything happens for a reason, even the “bad” things are happening to appreciate the “good” ones, learn, grow up, and have a more open heart every day.
Don’t quit your daydream, never undertake something that is not challenging for you, Life is neither a daring adventure or nothing.
You only need to jump once, yto trust once, to give one step to make your life an adventure through the unknown, after the first time, the entire universe will go with you, and you will find your own story, your own faith, the hidden secret of your personal legend. Then you will trust on life as you never did before.
🧠 Creativity is a way of living, break your mind every day, breaking up with your mindset, to think out of the box, and see the thousands of opportunities that life is presenting you everywhere, where others don’t see anything. From the fear & reasoning - side our creativity is blocked, and when we put our mind in blank and trust, then we are able to create new things, it is a paradox.
🧮 Logic is the name we put to our linear thinking, a systemic thinking based on limits that we have created to live in the lie that we can control/understand the universe. The Universe is chaos, and the only way to understand the chaos is totally out of our “logics”, but with our heart.
❤️I prefer taking the decisions based on my heart because My head has millions of limits, prejudices and wrong reasonings because of the lack of information, and social mindset. So when the heart is free to act without the fears of our head, we can discover the best part of ourselves, and slowly break the mind-limits that don’t let me see beyond apparent things. When you see a crowded square in a city, your head see a “crowded square”, but your heart see thousands of possibilities to love, make friends, find adventures, and find incredible people who may change your life.
I love people who makes me feel as if world is my home, and absolutely nothing separate us. Neither race, nor our beliefs, nor our cultures, They only enrich us. World is a place for everyone, it doesn't matter where you were born, just how far is your heart willing to arrive.
“Not all those who wonder are lost” (JRR Tolkien) Sometimes wondering with no direction let you discover what was inside you, it is another paradox.
Hobbies? Think of the most random thing in the world, and how is it possible to make it into reality, that’s my hobby.
🏼Travel as a CHILDREN who cannot control anything, trusting on everyone. Wondering or everything we see.
Leave a little sparkle wherever you go, sometimes a smile or a loving gesture, can be fair enough to brighten someone's life.
Accepting your shadows doesn't make them darker, but if you don't accept them, you can never make them your light.
Expect nothing and appreciate everything.
Laughter is the best medicine.
Always stay true to yourself.
✌🏻 Worry less and smile more!
☔️ When life gives you rainy days, play in puddles.
🏽Trust on life, everything happens for a reason.
🏻 Forgiveness and Forget and never close your heart to the beauty of human beings.
The whole life is a paradox, the same thing can be good and bad at the same time, we can not judge anything and even less anyone.
The “being” is just a self-construction In cooperation with our social environment, but we can break this social being to be whoever we want, whoever who our heart is claiming to be. The “being” is computed by three perceptions: how we tend to be because of our traumas and victories, how we tend to be depending on the others behavior, and how we expect the other wait for us to be something. The three components of our being are just the Prison of our true being, the being that is born to love.
It was said by the Jews during the slavery periods of the NAZIS concentration camps, there are 7 arts which can make human being to raise up his soul, cause art is coming directly from our soul, and that’s the only thing that any dictator could take off to their slaves. The imagination, the art that makes human being free to create and travel through the creation. It was said indeed that the Titanic film recreated the power of the art when the musicians didn’t stop playing while the Titanic was sinking. That’s because the art was the only thing which could stay beyond the death. Apart from the 7 arts (painting, dancing, literature, music, theatre, sculpture & photography) there is an 8th that made every human being who opened his heart to it, raised his soul and feel the fulfillment of the heart, this is real love.
If love is an art, then we all are artists when we love another person, but to make love in that way, love seeks to mean pure freedom, pure acceptance of the other, and pursuing the other’s happiness, being while letting him free. Love is the 8th art, cause make us free, and can change our soul, because it came from her.
Well, I consider myself as a happy man, who loves to be always smiling. But it is very boring to talk about my adjectives, so you can read the references that people write on my profile. I am not as good as they say, but you can see people’s opinion.
—————— DREAMS & ASPIRATIONS ————
I would love to dedicate my life to make sustainable projects in poor countries.
Maybe work for the United Nations and promote peace about the earth, easy access to education, basic needs for everyone and other sustainable goals.
I am learning more about my dreams every day, but I know I want to make something that could help people to be happier and have the same opportunities and freedom than in rich countries.
———————— MY BELIEFS —————————
~ I would love to grow up with your beliefs, that’s something very personal that you may not share, but you can learn something from me, and I can learn a lot of new things from you, it is all about how can we open our hearts ~.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity” ~Paulo Coelho~.
I believe that traveling opens my heart to the greatest mystery of this Life, God and his Love for us.
⭐️I believe that God is the biggest Love that we can have in our life’s, but we need opening our heart and mind to the silence to listen to the music of the Universe.
The world plays a song continuously but only those who can stop their lifes and trust on something different than themselves, keeping in total silence, will listen to it.
🧑🏻I believe in humanity. Our capacity to change the heart of the most mistreated person. Not judging others but giving them the opportunity to start from the beginning, seeing them with child eyes, loving them freely.
🏻Simplicity takes people to change their heart, to see a small light in their life’s even when everything seem to be finished. Someone who has killed another one for no reason has darkness and light in his heart, you are who decide to lock him up in this label, or love him/her in the way that maybe no one did it before. Everyone deserves love and comprehension, including the person who has done the worst thing in life. We will never know how we would have acted if we had has his exact same life since a kid.
~ TO LEARN HOW TO LOVE, YOU NEED TO BE LOVED FIRST, THAT’s WHY TRAVELING WITH AN OPENED HEART CAN TEACH YOU HOW TO LOVE ~.
~ WHEREVER YOU GO, GO WITH ALL YOUR HEART ~ Confucius~.
—————————— JUST FOR PEOPLE LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION IN LIFE ————————————————
This poem from the great Walt Whitman giving honor to the film “Dead Poets Society” explains in my opinion how should we live a life of love and peace... But under the motto:
C A R P E D I E M
Don’t allow the day to end without having grown a bit,
without being happy, without feeding your dreams.
Don’t be defeated by discouragement.
Don’t allow anyone to take away your right to express yourself,
which is almost a duty.
Don’t abandon the desire to make something extraordinary of your life.
Don’t stop believing that words and poetry can change the world.
No matter what happens, our essence is intact.
We are beings filled with passion.
Life is both desert and Oasis.
It knocks us down, it hurts us, it teaches us,
it turns us into the protagonists of our own stories.
Even if the winds blow against us,
the powerful masterpiece continues:
You can add a stanza.
Never stop dreaming,
because in Dreams Man can be free.
Don’t fall into the most fatal of errors: Silence.
The majority live in a frightful silence.
Don’t resign yourself to this, flee…..
“I emit my screams from the roofs of this world”, says the poet.
Value the beauty of the simple things.
One can make beautiful poetry about little things.
Don’t betray you beliefs,
because we can’t row against our own selves:
That turns life into hell.
Enjoy the panic provoked by having your life in front of you.
Live it intensely, without mediocrity.
Remember that the future is within you,
so face your duties with pride and without fear.
Learn from those who can teach you.
From the experiences of those that preceded us,
our “Dead Poets”,
They will help you walk through life.
The society of today is us:
The “Living Poets”
Don’t allow life to get by you
without living it…..
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
——— WHY I’M ON COUCHSURFING? ———
The real question would be why someone might not want to be on Couchsurfing.
After trying once Couchsurfing, and the kind of experiences that you live here, I can not decide to travel in another way. At least when I travel alone.
Couchsurfing let you see the world through the eyes of a local, who finally become in a long life friend, and let you share the most authentic and unique experiences.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
🇫🇷 I stayed 3 days in silence in a small village called Taizè in the French Alps, and it was the strongest spiritual experience of my life, I discovered a lot of myself and LOST fear to suffering. Since this moment I started to hear more my heart than my head.
🇪🇬 Go to Egypt for one week (as a backpacker) with no reservations made in any hotel neither apartments. I visited all the country with no plans, living life as an Egyptian, taking their public transportations from north to south of the country, even sleeping in night buses, and poor villages, and knowing all kind of people there. As I did not have any reservations done... I could enjoy of all the plans that Egyptian peoples presented me.
🇲🇦 I Made a 48 hours trip, and I visited three cities in that time: Burdeos, Marsella, and Ouarzazate (in Sáhara Desert). I could do that because I slept like 2 hours in the airports, saving as much money as possible.
🇯🇴 In Jordan I slept in Wadi Rum desert, in an amazing night camp, and the beduin who hosted us in the camp carried us in his car by the desert at night (3 am), at the same time he was drinking a bottle of vodka. It has been one of the most funny experience I have ever lived.
🇮🇪 I stayed hitchhiking alone with one degree, when it was raining and windy for 2 HOURS. But the best experience was that every children of this village (Cobh) who saw me stopped and asked me if I was okey, if I needed some food, and all these children opened my heart as I couldn’t imagine.
🇪🇸 I knew a 70 years old man on the street who was asking for money... and visiting him every day during a month, we became practically best friends, even We celebrated his birthday together. This man taught me more than every book I have ever readen.
🇹🇷 I have traveled some hours in hot air balloon.
🇲🇽 I saw a violinist spider in the Maya jungle just watching me with less than half metro of separation.
🇪🇸 I organized a party of more thaN 2 hundreds people in a garden.
🇳🇴 I traveled the North Pole with a friend of Couchsurfing that I hosted in my house, his girlfriend, my sister, and my best friend. We did 20 hours traveling Lapland by car, got to see the northern lights, and still live several experiences with local people.
🇮🇹 I traveled alone for 8 days to Italy not taking any appartment nor Hostel. There were days that I didn’t even know where I was spending this same night, but trusting on live, and people’s kindness I was provided with the best possible experiences ever imagined, and I had host in every place I was, all of them now I consider like my family.
🇧🇪 I organized a CS meeting in the private island of another couchsurfer in the middle of a lake. We all made kayaking at night and opened our hearts as brothers and sisters til the point that next we were going to Germany in one day trip. Next night we stayed back together and I was fired of my job in Belgium, then I saw myself as a homeless for one minute, until all my FRIENDS told me, where are we traveling next? Then we had one of the best caravan trips in my life, which ended up in the middle of the black jungle in Germany, while raining, but totally covered by the super high trees at the same time that we were singing & playing the guitar, and making a fire not only in the wood, but also in our hearts.
🇳🇱 I improvised a 7-days trip in caravan with two friends (now brothers) from Couchsurfing. We stayed in one of the North Frisian islands with wild seals in the coasts, but sleeping between paper boards because we lost the last ferry... hehe. It was funny because we were having I kind of psicodelic experience (something really punctual) so we were sure we wanted to stay at the island, and predicted the future three hours ago. “We are going to lose the last ferry because the island is calling us”. Also I stayed alone with the CS ambassador of Amsterdam, the most interesting person I’ve ever met on CS, with part of his past in prision, war, homeless periods, and the wisdom of a person who decided to open all his heart to this crazy world, I keep him in my heart, and grew up thanks to him more than I could ever imagine. (Thanks Kevin). We also met a lot of people who became friends in the rest of the cities we visited together... no plans, just improvising, taking what life wanted to bring us.
