Human Sustainability

We refer to Human Sustainability as a narrative that promotes a shared sense of well-being, focusing on responsibility, awareness, and willingness as the GPS to choosing consciously. Human Sustainability is built upon the genuine trust we have of our own core, and thus being able to trust others. Balance, integrity, compassion, cooperation, and peace being seen from a lens beyond right […]

    Responsibility

    Just as taking care of the basic sustenance of our physical body, we are responsible for allowing life to flow through us and letting go. We are responsible for whatever we choose to hold on to. We are responsible for what we create, for what we choose to give form through us. It is our responsibility to […]

      Continuidad

      La Continuidad se conforma de aprecio infinito, aceptación, comprensión y cooperación, llenando el espacio más allá de la forma; un espacio que está inundado con nuestra esencia original, donde no hay emergencias, y donde el asombro y la curiosidad de la vida florecen auténtica y orgánicamente. Prueba este ejercicio de respiración: Con cada respiración, permito que la vida fluya a través de mí y […]

        Continuity

        Continuity is infinite positive regard, acceptance, understanding, and cooperation, filling the space beyond the form; a space that is flooded with our original essence, where there are no emergencies, and where the wonder and curiosity of life bloom authentically and organically. Try this Breathing Exercise: With each breath, I allow the flow of life through me. I am aware of the flow of […]

            Interdependencia

            La interdependencia es nuestro pulso colectivo… la oportunidad de participar más activamente de nuestra fuerza vital. La interdependencia nos invita a ser una presencia Responsable, Consciente y de buena Voluntad en todos los sentidos. ¿Cómo puedes utilizar más responsablemente tu fuerza vital? ¿Cómo puedes ser más proactivo con la interdependencia?

              Interdependence

              Interdependence is our collective pulse… the opportunity to more actively participate from our life force. Interdependence invites us to be a Responsible, Aware, and Willing presence in all ways. How can you more actively participate from your life force? How can you be more responsible, aware and willing toward interdependence?

                Sintetizar

                Sintetizar es la forma en que procesamos e interpretamos lo que es. Es nuestra capacidad de percibir y convertir la realidad externa en realidad interna. Estamos en este proceso, estableciendo una historia en movimiento a través de nuestras habilidades para responder y, con ello, dando a luz a todos y cada uno de nuestros momentos presentes… […]

                                  Estar en la conciencia de PEACE, por ejemplo, nos ayuda a tomar conciencia de cómo, está la palabra, el concepto, el significado y la interpretación, y así sucesivamente. Sin embargo, hay una línea de continuidad de una experiencia: una experiencia interna. Toma conciencia del auténtico empoderamiento y la majestuosidad de ese espacio interior. La paz se desarrolla dinámicamente dentro de nosotros.

                                    María Russy comparte su testimonio y nos invita a pensar cómo nuestra estabilidad puede convertirse en la estabilidad de quienes nos rodean. “Las personas son lo más importante, el mar y las estrellas pueden esperar. El camino de la sanación comienza en nosotros mismos y, si acaso termina en algún punto, ese debe ser la Madre Tierra”, nos dice María Russy, mujer sanadora con el poder de tocar y transformar la vida, como todos nosotros. Sólo hace falta aprender a improvisar, para llegar al corazón de la vida y, desde allí, transformarla para nuestros prójimos”.

La condición humana nos ofrece la oportunidad de reconocernos y encontrarnos. Tomando en cuenta que cada humano es un mensaje y una historia, buscamos expandir la consciencia a través de las circunstancias especiales de cada individuo. Gracias al arte y el activismo en conjunción, podemos ser testigos de dichas historias individuales, con un alto grado de impacto en nuestra vida y nuestra colectividad.

                                        Mi nuevo trabajo: hacer lo que deseo

                                        “Sentir tu humanidad a flor de piel puede ser una experiencia dolorosa”, nos dice Alejandra en su testimonio sobre su experiencia como improvisadora. Aprender a arriesgarse es necesario, si esperamos, algún día, vivir la vida con intensidad, ecuanimidad y siempre al borde de la improvisació. Los planes cambian, las experiencias y la vida son imprevisibles, pero es posible, para todos nosotros, aprender a darle vuelta a cualquier situación. Alejandra nos cuenta cómo lo hizo ella.

                                          Ayuda en ecuanimidad

                                          Poverty, Inc es un documental dirigido por Michael Matheson Miller que critica la visión asistencialista de muchas ONG. Es inevitable preguntarnos ¿qué papel juegan las acciones desinteresadas en un mundo tan complejo como el nuestro? Tenemos que ser conscientes de cómo prestamos servicio y nos actualizamos para asistir a los necesitados no sólo en comunidades lejanas, sino a la vuelta de la esquina. Ayudar en ecuanimidad, de corazón a corazón, de humano a humano, sin ninguna clase de paternalismo o falsa filantropía.

We are shipwrecked in despair. We do not realize that to get ahead you just have to look inside yourself, “to learn, like her, to improvise, let’s know her story.

Plans change, experiences and life are unpredictable, but it is possible, for all of us, to learn to turn any situation around. Alejandra tells us how she did it.

                                            VENA CAVA gives out causes, movements, fascinating characters for their work, through the dissemination of their stories. On this occasion, the documentary that concerns us is Juanita, directed, produced and edited by the young filmmaker Ximena Amescua Cuenca. Descendant of midwives, on the side of mother and father, Juanita belongs to a long tradition of women healers who survive, in resistance, until the present. Her final objective, as she herself mentions it, is to defend the rights and traditions of indigenous women.

I’m sure I’ll come out ahead of this emotional shipwreck

At your orders, general.

Sometimes we do not know where to look for the strength to solve the problems that come our way every day. We are shipwrecked in despair. We do not realize that to get ahead you just have to look inside yourself.

I’m María Teresa, a personal and business image consultant. My friends and family tell me Mayte, I like it because it sounds warmer, less rigid than Maria Teresa. When I saw a portrait of Maria Theresa I of Austria, I was surprised by the authoritarian attitude to the whole body. Of course, they were other times and she had to lead an empire, so I can imagine; If one who is a simple mortal becomes stern when trying to direct his life, I do not want to imagine her.

When I think of myself, I think of a woman who is orderly, attentive, and especially inclined towards empathy. I suspect that it is due to the nature of my work. As an image consultant, I must be very receptive to the personality, interests, and needs of my clients. There is another feature that I like to highlight: my sense of humor. I inherited it from my father’s family. I think that if a person is not able to laugh alone, his inner life will probably be sterile. Laughter is a symptom of spiritual health.

My work life contrasts with the bad management of my own emotions. Sometimes I reproach myself, but that’s the way things are. I do not understand how the ingredients to create a human being can be combined in such a way that they result in a person who knows how to laugh at life and at the same time is extremely emotional; the mix of tragicomedy. I am very anxious, to such an extent that I have come to experience true panic attacks, that brings me back to earth, even though I try to stay light, light, to fly when I can connect with myself doing what exalts the best of me.

I have not dared to say this to anyone, but, for a while, I have been shipwrecked in a very strong emotional crisis: I feel the deepest sadness of my life. I would not have imagined that, at forty-three, with a consolidated career, being a successful woman, I would feel such desolation. Sometimes I think it’s a temporary thing, I even think it’s just a hormonal issue. Other times I think it’s something permanent, and I do not see the end, and when that happens panic attacks come, suddenly I lose air and I feel a scorching heat as if I were locked in a very small and dark closet.

To deal with these emotional outbursts I have learned to stay calm. I tell myself, breath, you’re not going to be shipwrecked, take a breath and plant yourself on the ground. I analyze what happens to me, I try to listen to that part of me that clings to not succumbing to panic. We all have a lifejacket inside, it’s just a matter of learning how to use it. I think part of the secret lies in improvisation when life takes us by surprise we have to turn it around.

My work has taught me to deal with the emotions of other people. That is why I have developed a sixth sense that has even helped me. Just as the pianists play the keys of the piano so that the sound is born, I play the sensitive fibers of my clients so that they give their best notes. Not everyone knows how to behave correctly in front of others, or in their work environment. That’s why they come to me, I help them, I guide them, they give them tools. I have learned to say things with subtlety, in my ear, as if I were Pepe Grillo. One can not arrive and release the truth to people, they are not accustomed to frankness, and even if we were, because suddenly I include myself. You have to have method, touch and experience, human warmth.

I remember very well the first time I had to sell image consulting to a general in the United States Army. For some reason my boss could not attend the appointment and appointed a colleague and me as the ones in charge of presenting the details of the advice and closing the deal with the general. If I say that I was scared to death, I’m short. Obviously I felt that I was sinking into a sea of anxiety. Before introducing ourselves to the general and his team, my partner and I agreed that he would speak, for being the most experienced.

Moments before the appointment, in the elevator, he told me:

You have to be very careful with your words when talking to a client. If we make a mistake, the boss cuts our heads.

I reminded him that he had agreed to take over the exhibition. I only thought to support him morally, behind the scenes. He looked at me with eyes that I still have in mind, as if he were trying to tell me that anything can happen to a client.

As soon as I set foot in the room where the presentation would take place, I felt that I had fallen into a pit. There were about twenty men. Their eyes cut the air, they were sitting around a small box. In a matter of minutes, my partner came forward and began to explain each point of the advice, with much eloquence and ease. I calmed myself to see him sure of himself, in front of those hard men who did not make a gesture.

There came a time when I was reassured that I would not have to say anything. My partner had everything under control, and it was a matter of minutes before it was over. Suddenly, one of those present, who apparently was an intelligence general, gave me an inquisitive look and asked me to pass the front to round up some points that, in his opinion, my partner had omitted.

He had never spoken in public, much less in front of twenty US army officers and a general who aspired to reach the top of the Pentagon. My vision blurred, I tried to breathe, but I felt as if an invisible hand covered my mouth and nose. I still remember the men’s looks, their expectation, and the pressure of knowing I was responsible for a contract with the army. I do not know where the words came from, but I went to the general and said:

To enhance your attributes as a leader you must be congruent with your appearance, knowledge and behavior, not only during work hours but every minute of your life. Great leaders are all the time. Let’s start with clothing, the right complement to create that congruence between what you know and what you do.

Not only the general and his team were left speechless, but also my partner was embarrassed by my response. Now I know that I found the clarity to succeed in the hours of effort and intense work that had been done until then and everything had to do, I think, because at that moment I invoked all my presence and I became completely in that situation, getting connected, I suppose, with that internal certainty that we all possess. I started talking thinking that the expert on the subject was me, I chose my words carefully, as my boss had explained to me. The general believed in us and hired us that day.

Since then I have dealt with my weaknesses, leaning on my empathy towards others, to understand myself. It is a long way. Many wise men have said it, know yourself. Sometimes the road is much more arduous and laborious than any job in the world. It’s worth taking the challenge. I’m sure I’ll come out ahead of this emotional crisis. I will not be shipwrecked, I will be congruent with me, there is the exit.
