The Brazilians are a Holiday!
The awakening of one`s true consciousness is the most noble pursuit in life.
Life is short... Break laws, question traditions, forgive quickly and kiss slowly, synchronize with nature, love unconditionally, think with your heart, laugh out of control, and never stop smiling despite of what others might say...
The fastest way home is to feel at home.
Wisdom = Knowledge (theory) + Experience (practice) + Discernment (cognition) + Instinct (feelings) + Intuition (spiritual).
Quotes I love:
"Everything will be all right at the end. If it's not all right, it is not the end."
"Happiness is worth only if shared"
"We travel to search for... And always come back to find it"
