Human Rights

What is the origin of misogyny, xenophobia and homophobia? Why is there still so much violence against women, foregneirs and homosexuals being perpetuated, and people thinking they have the right to do so much wrongs against the human rights? Why is the female boasted to be so scary, menacing? And why the Amazons were considered legends instead of being defended and defined in the historical context as liberating and emancipating of the soul? If their tales and exploits were banned or punished, muffled by society and the power, but embedded in the human psyche and they survive until today. The book I recently published on Amazon covers the historical awareness of nature that both contributes to the perpetuation of inequality and the role of men and women in society in turn generating a distortion of power, values and principles that generate violence.

"Memoirs of an Amazon" is a story about past lives revealing mysteries and sliding over the realm of the imaginary that challenges mankind to the vision of a society free of prejudice to the eradication of the root of problems rather complex. And that vision would benefit both the arrival of a time of peace and the dissolution of discords and the solution of challenges between such misunderstanding that plagues the world today.
So talking about human rights, there are a lot of wrongs until we get it right as prejudice and contempt for citizens considered inferior, and any act of domination and discrimination on ethnic or national origin, including what is also considered a violation by the Conference United Nations Conference on Human Rights (Vienna, 1993), which formally recognized violence against women as a violation of Human Rights.

This post is my way of taking part of Blog Action Day, a Global initiative which I participate since it has begun in 2007:
Last year the theme was "The Power of WE"

In 2011 the theme was FOOD
In 2010 we talked about a very serious issue:WATER
In 2009 I somehow missed it to talk about "My Multimedia Books"
In 2008 I was "Fighting Poverty in the World"
And the last and the first but not the least to burst Global Warming


Mediate and Meditate

The deep meditation keeps the stress levels diminished to the point of altering the action of hormones on the brain, causing a relaxation beneficial to the whole nervous system. Even people who suffer from a traumatic event keeps less trauma collateral effects and calmer and able to deal with it with considerable ease and go on with their lives thanks to constant states of relaxation. Meditation works more and better than a full night's sleep. That's because the brain levels are still there when in a sleep state more accelerated than when in a state of meditation, and the more there is the habit of meditating deeply over, more the body learns to recover from the stress which means more life, energy and creativity in their activities. To meditate does not necessarily have to be at rest, even in a pretty hectic activity one can meditate. Be amazed then! That's right! Even looking agitated outside one can reach an impressive level of meditation. And there is a tale that takes place in a monastery where a monk asks his master who is sitting with eyes closed, "Master, are you meditating?" To which the master replied: "No, I'm working." Then he gets up and goes to the garden and starts weeding the land. When the disciple sees his master sweating in full physical activity he asks him, "Oh, and now are you working?" The teacher focused on his activity and without stop working the land with his hoe, simply says: "Now I am meditating."
So here I leave a video to capture images that can help to achieve a level of active meditation with considerable relaxing effect:
