We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

This is a heartbreaking admission. One she would die-a-thousand-deaths to learn I have broadcast across the internet... But how to heal what is kept hidden?
My mother is beautiful. Fragile, elegant, fine. She is also delusional, paranoid and impossibly irrational.
I have tried, my entire life, to please and protect her. She has tormented me endlessly with her endless (yes, I know, twice in one sentence) grief, accusation, guilt and blame. I have…

Since I no longer ascribe to the fake-it-til-you-make-it philosophy, I keep waiting to feel fully "healed" and "functional" before polluting the morphogenetic field with any more neurotic vomit.
Alas, after 20+ years of "self-improvement" and creative implosion, it occurs that perhaps there is some value after all in sharing my challenges and processes with "the world"... Thus, I bring you "The Lemonade Letters"... a blog of introspective musings that will seek to transform my…

Thank you very much, Tes.
The link you gave me brought me to the only certified person in Italy and her website,
but maybe there are more - the last website update has been in 2007 - so if there are more references it will be beautiful.
A friend of mine sells courses (itc, languages, etc.) and she'll be happy to propose new and interesting classes. She doesn't speak a word in English, though!
Wow! Could you ask them if they know some Italians who do the same thing?
I want to translate the videos because I want to learn how to, as well.
I've become a member of Zeitgeist Movement (I guess you know it) and reached the awareness that I need to learn how to speak even in Italian! :o)
I hope you are fine.
I have found this very very very interisting video that I would like to share with you.
04 On A Clear Day.mp3 ...:-))) dp
By Thich Nhat Hanh
Don't say that I will depart tomorrow--even today I am still arriving.
Look deeply: every second I am arriving to be a bud on a Spring branch, to be a tiny bird, with still-fragile wings, learning to sing in my new nest, to be a caterpillar in the heart of a flower, to be a jewel hiding itself in a stone.
I still arrive, in order to laugh and to cry, to fear and to hope. The rhythm of my heart is the birth and death of all that is alive.
I am a mayfly metamorphosing on the surface of the river. And I am the bird that swoops down to swallow the mayfly.
I am a frog swimming happily in the clear water of a pond. And I am the grass-snake that silently feeds itself on the frog.
I am the child in Uganda, all skin and bones, my legs as thin as bamboo sticks. And I am the arms merchant, selling deadly weapons to Uganda.
I am the twelve-year-old girl, refugee on a small boat, who throws herself into the ocean after being raped by a sea pirate. And I am the pirate, my heart not yet capable of seeing and loving.
I am a member of the politburo, with plenty of power in my hinds. And I am the man who has to pay his "debt of blood" to my people dying slowly in a forced-labor camp.
My joy is like Spring, so warm it makes flowers bloom all over the Earth. My pain is like a river of tears, so vast it fills the four oceans.
Please call me by my true names, so I can hear all my cries and laughter at once, so I can see that my joy and pain are one.
Please call me by my true names, so I can wake up and the door of my heart could be left open, the door of compassion.
This poem is from "Call Me By My True Names" The Collected Poems of Thich Nhat Hanh.
