Those who live in Sicily know, that watching the snow fall is an event that rarely happens on the island, especially at sea level, above the millennial rocks created by the lava of the volcano.
Instead, we are here today, eyes wide to look like childrens the snow falling down with its hypnotic flakes.
Everything is muffled by the silence, a sense of peace around us and of great energy within us. The snow brings us back to memories, to the beneficial nostalgia of what it was and to those people who were here, and now they rest as a dwelling snowflakes in the calm of the universe.
Ancient beliefs say that “a snowy year is a good year,” many of you will already perceive that this 2017 will be a special year, not only for the innovations that will bring. Good intentions at this time of year are recurring thoughts, but do not lose the sight of everything which has led us to be who we are and where we are.
Today I reminded myself that about two years ago when the violence of terrorism decided to enter more and more into our homes through the media, I felt necessary to cut the wire of the antenna tv. It was not an act of rebellion against the system, it was a conscious gesture of protection of everyday life. I continued to be informed but not through the sounds and violent images that burst the others suggested in my eyes, the unconscious and the spirit.
Today beyond the windows glass of the house, looking at the snow, the biggest hope for all of us is not to lose confidence in the human, the human people, not allow us to lose the greatest thing of existence: trust in human love.
The biggest challenge is not to live, but to live with others. Human relationships are the biggest challenge for our life and for the universe and the nature that surrounds us, the planet, it is also conscious viewer.
According to the principle that nothing is created and nothing is destroyed, it is time to stop to continue to nurture the illusion that everything will remain unchanged, for the better or for the worse.
We need more than ever to guide with awareness our actions and our thoughts towards positive growth and not the opposite.
Snow is the symbol of transformation, and this snow today warms the heart, opens it, amplifies it. The cycles as flows must never be interrupted but heard and all those who I have met in the latter year, relatives, colleagues, students, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, near and far, hope the snow around us would become nourishment of life.0
