Meditation The Practice That Cure.

                                                        The 6 Paramitas in meditation

 I would like to share in  this edition what I have  been learning lately  in my practices of meditation. Paramitas means enlighnment or perfection of human virtues in Buddhism. I do meditate every day at least ounce trying to learn and  master these virtues with all my limitations and obstacles that I received daily. Is been more or less a year when I start with this practice and  since my life was full of pressure like any other .
One of the benefit I have  found in meditation, is the peace of mine and even stress management ,the clearest  your mind is the easier to recognize answers.  Some of the physical benefits in this practice is also help to keep low the blood pressure .

The six Paramitas or wisdom in action are:

1       Giving-help ourselves but help others.
      Conduct –act in a positive way towards us and with others
2       Patience-knowing that pushing always is not the right way.
3      Diligence- do things when needs to be done.
4      Meditation- meditate in this actions everyday and breathing control.
5      Wisdom-is not to have information but how to act in situations.

The more we learn about these virtues, the more we free ourselves from the daily non satisfaction, any pain, suffering and achieved happiness and true wisdom.

Any negative thought or negative emotion will cause pain within us. But it is possible to transform these emotions for compassion and healing love and bring true peace and unlimited satisfaction and confident to us.

Meditation is a practice that have change my life, sometimes it is not easy .. there are too many thoughts   dancing in our brain dictating the wrong messages, but I keep learning to be focused . I have found more answers within this practice that any other religion….. and it can change yours too.

Until the next edition.

Three Beautiful Love Letters ...

                                       The Genius ,The Master And The Anonymous.

Love, is the most empowering force that any human could enjoy and experiment beyond any limitation or expectation.

Many letters have  been written in the name of love for thousands of man and women’s sharing their heart, with the universe of memories and moments suspended in a landscape of unforgettable moments.

This time I would like to dedicated my column to three persons in history  that I have found and who have written letters expressing their love in special ways,different times, different places..

The Genius 

Love letter from Influential Physicist,Richard Feynman To His Wife.

Oct 17,1946


I adore you, sweetheart.

I know how much you like to hear that-but I don’t only write it because like it- I write it because it makes me warm all over inside to write you.
It is such a terrible long time since I last wrote you,almost two years but I know you’ll excuse,me because you understand how I am.stubborn and realistic.I I thought there it was no sense to writing.
But now I know my darling wife that is right to do what I have delayed in doing,and that I have done so much in the past.I want to tell you I love you.I want to love you.I always will love you.
I find it hard to understand in my mind what it means to love you after you are dead-but still want to comfort and take care of you....and I want you to love me and care of me.I want to have problems to discuss with you-I want to do little projects with you.I never thought until now that we can do that...When you were sick you worried because you could not give me something that you wanted..I love you in so many ways....

My darling wife. I adore you.
I love my wife.My wife is dead.

This is only part of the letter writing by Feynman to his wife that was 25 years old and pass away in 1945.16 month later he wrote this letter but remained unopened until his death in 1988.

The Master

The Inmortal Beloved 

My angel,my all,my very self-only a few words today and that with pencil. Not till tomorrow will my lodgings be definitely determined upon-what a useless waste of time .Why this deep sorrow when necessity speaks can our love endure except trough sacrifices,trough not demanding everything from another: can you change the fact that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine...

Though still in bed,my thoughts go out to you,my inmortal beloved,now and then joyfully,then sadly,waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us-I can live only wholly with you or not at all.Yes I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you,and  can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits, yes unhappily it must be so,you will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you.....

My Angel,I have just been told that the mailcoach goes everyday ,therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at calm.only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together calm ,love me today ,yesterday...
Never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
Ever thine
Ever mine
Ever ours.

Ludwig Van Beethoven.

This is just part of the unsent love letter to unknown addressed  that was found after Beethoven’s death.

The Anonymous 
August 25, 1989

Why Do I love You

I guess the way that I have acted lately is very contradictory to what I am about to write.
I can go on forever about how you light my heart. ignite my passions .I wish things could be so different; now I miss your touch,the smell of your hair ... from the first kiss I loved you... the longer we were together the more I loved your goodness, your heart and soul. maybe the things in you that I wanted to be . maybe we will never be together, but the love we shared will always stay in  my heart , I love everything about you from your soul to your funny little toes ...every minute with you was magic, brought out the passion and fire in my heart that I thought was long gone ,, I love you for you and making a better me.

I love you, from the the first kiss to the end of times ..I love you for all the things you are ,I love you for all you brought out in me.I love you for being you.



Love is always  the root.

Miami Fashion Spotlight: BRUNEtTE & DIAMONDS: The Miami Symphony Orchestra ...

      The Miami Symphony Orchestra “MISO” Takes Over Our Community.

I am personally a huge fan of classic music. Academic music is rooted in the traditions of western music (liturgical and secular) so it means  in deep, is very emotional and passionate.

Miami symphony orchestra was created in 1989 by Manuel Ochoa, a choral conductor before Cuba Castrista.
The Orchestra was just  group of musicians playing at the Ballroom of the Hotel Inter-continental In downtown and sometimes out- of -tune repertoire. For our community ,is a tremendous responsibility to present and preserve the culture and legacy of this silhouette of pleasants  notes for all  your senses.

Since 2005 the orchestra received a new twist, adding  to the Orchestra a fresh but experimented and energetic new conductor. The Venezuelan “Maestro”  Eduardo Marturet; who is renowned worldwide after of been conducting others international  orchestras such Filarmonica De Buenos Aires( Argentina) , Berliner Symphoniker in Germany ,Symfoniorkesteret i Stavanger in Norway and of course his native country Venezuela with the Simon Bolivar Symphony.

Marturet ,just in a few seasons conquer and brough to our city a new vibe in classics , his energy and passion when he is on stage, only compares with  the times in old salons concerts, where  romance between lovers with big dresses and tight corsets,use to cut off  breath after a kiss. Absolutely, with a mixed look between genius and fashionista, wearing his  high end designer bling shoes and relaxed hair style,this man knows how to workship music.

Marturet is not alone in this passion for classic music,Mrs Athina Klioumi is the Maestro’s wife, muse and  “ conductor of the conductor” as many people calls her,since also has a huge impact in this community. As actress ,model and big supporter of the orchestra behind the scenes,Athina is really a networking professional. The Maestro muse, has an ethereal beauty.Originally from Germany and Greek blood,she is really the Goddess walking through any salon.

Miami’s new revamp orchestra, is now a trend in the culture life of our city. with concerts like “Sounds of Hollywood”  and the very new  “Triple Russians” Beginning May 4th 2014  ,Supporting many young talents and local musicians,this orchestra is shaping the new culturescape.
