Have you ever heard the cries of a whale?
Have you ever seen an eagle flying through the skies?
“Cosmic nostalgia” is their song:
Bodies that cross endless oceans and other
blue immensities painted with clouds.
Are we nothing but intersecting matter?
Traveling across Place and Time
in a never-ending journey?

Go, my child; see, touch,
listen and taste the world.
Fill your eyes with sun
until tears of light suddenly burst!
And if one day your sight meets
nothing but a white magnificent horizon,
smile! True kindness
needs no eyes, just purity of heart.

Become a Man.
Learn with experience, teach virtue
and leave when your work is done.
Different times, different places,
different bodies wait.
Only your mission remains the same:
to live better; to serve better, to love better,
to fail better, to cry better, to smile better, to BE better…

Touch the core of your humanity,
smiling at every leaf of every tree
at every water drop of every sea
at every enquiring little eyes
you may find along the way.
Forever frail, yet embraced,
Nature’s children forever share
Life’s creating energy.

Go. Learn. Teach. Leave.
Go further. Learn further. Teach further. Leave again.
Home? – Love. And the eternal search for whom you really are.
