Wisdom from Sergio Bambaren

If today were my last day on Earth and I could share 500 words of brilliance with the world, here are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

That the most important things in life are free. That as long as I never forget that my spiritual life comes before my material life, I will be Ok. That I should never judge a person for the color of his skin, his/her faith, the car he drives, or the clothes he wears: who knows, maybe he/she is just a victim of circumstances. That when you speak to someone, always do it looking him straight to his/her eyes.

That fear is just a state of mind, and nothing else. That I should be aware of how I see the world, because the world will be exactly as I see it. That a problem is not a problem, just an opportunity to learn the lesson and become wiser, stronger.

That everything in life is borrowed, only my dreams and my life belongs to me. That when the day comes to leave this beautiful planet called Earth, the only things I will be able to take with me are the memories of the things and dreams I achieved, and the only things I will be able to leave are the good or bad things I did to make of this world a better or worst place.

I took a class in the astral concerning problems.

Problems were meant to be solved.
