The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

Often when we are least expecting it, Life sets up a really tough challenge to test our courage and our ability to fight. We mustn't pretend that nothing has happened, but instead must stand up and face the reality with utmost Courage. We must accept the facts that the Challenge is never going to wait, and that the flow of Life does not reverse. At such testing moments in life, Courage is what enables us to stand up, face the challenge and overcome all odds. Courage is what truly makes us who we are, as we wrestle with our demons to triumph. Good luck, my Friend.

Oh God, I'm so excited. You see, I watched the Oscars every year at home on an Irish channel and the reception was fuzzy because we were in the country.

Oh how smoothly, how swiftly and horribly, how cruelly and thoroughly, one discovers the powers and prowess of Maya, the Supreme power of Illusions! With a simple sleight of her hand, léger de main, everything changes in a moment; electrically charged, awesome and exciting years of life shrink to moments - just to realize that all that fascinating reality had been a dream. Perhaps all that had happened previously had been a continuous sequence of beautiful images that one would admire and fall in love with, and to realize that it’s all the game of dreams, illusions and Maya. The reality also strikes, at the same moment, that everything one would still experience in the future, would see with one’s eyes and feel with one’s hands, up to the moment of one’s death — that everything is not going to be any different in substance, or any different in kind. Why would it be? It’s always all a game, all foam and all dreams. It’s Maya, the whole lovely and frightful, delicious and desperate kaleidoscope of life with its searing delights, intertwined with its searing sorrows, the amazing show that has been ongoing since the dawn of Universe.

Oh la suavidad, la rapidez y horriblemente, con qué crueldad y minuciosamente, uno descubre los poderes y proezas de Maya, el poder supremo de ilusiones! Con un simple juego de la mano, léger de main, todo cambia en un instante; cargadas eléctricamente, impresionante y años apasionantes de la vida se reducen a momentos - sólo para darse cuenta de que todo lo fascinante realidad había sido un sueño. tal vez todo lo que había sucedido anteriormente había sido una secuencia continua de imágenes bellas que uno puede admirar y enamorarse, y para darse cuenta de que todo el juego de los sueños, las ilusiones y Maya. La realidad también afecta, en el mismo momento, que todo lo que uno seguiría experiencia en el futuro, iba a ver con los ojos y sentir con las manos, hasta el momento de la propia muerte - que no todo va a ser diferente en cuanto al fondo , o cualquier clase diferente. ¿por qué sería? siempre es todo un juego, toda la espuma y todos los sueños. es Maya, todo el caleidoscopio encantadora y espantosa, delicioso y desesperado de la vida con sus delicias abrasadoras, entrelazadas con sus dolores ardientes, el increíble espectáculo que ha estado en curso desde los albores del universo.
