listen to me and fly

Every apple has a story.
You are an apple. I`m listening to you.

Before coming in Mexico I bought a book that was going to teach me a lot about life.
I was waiting for the right moment to start, and it came (the moment). It was one day
 when I forgot my PC charger at the university so I had no connection with the world.

"The Book of Life" is about meditation.
First lesson is about listening:

"Have you ever sat very silently, not with your attention fixed on anything, not making an
effort to concentrate, but with the mind very quiet, really still? Then you hear everything,
don’t you? You hear the far off noises as well as those that are nearer and those that are
very close by, the immediate sounds—which means really that you are listening to
everything. Your mind is not confined to one narrow little channel. If you can listen in
this way, listen with ease, without strain, you will find an extraordinary change taking
place within you, a change which comes without your volition, without your asking; and
in that change there is great beauty and depth of insight."

A few days ago I have learned to fly.
Alex, the teacher from the university (I have to write a special post about him later) as usual 
prepared something interesting for his students. It was a bridge of wishes and advices. All the
students were staying in two lines, close to each other, and holding their hands. It was like a 
bridge of hands that was throwing one by one each student and everybody had to wish something
 to the "flying" person.
Besides "drink tequila" and "smoke weed"  (that are also not bad wishes (joke):D ), there were a lot of 
good things that are going to happen with me just because a bunch of amazing people made me 
fly and  told me to be happy, and to explore, and to love, and enjoy...

I`m listening to you.
