EXISTENTIAL DECALOGUE to guide my life
1 – I do not know who I am, nor do I care. I don’t see anyone inside of me.
2 – I do not follow any tradition or teacher. I don’t lean on the past.
3 – I do not feel guilty about anything. I wouldn’t remove or change anything that happened.
4 – I am not afraid to die. There’s no need to prolong life if actually lived.
5 – I don’t need to attack anyone. It doesn’t make me evolve if I destroy others.
6 – I’m not doing anything. There’s no one in me doing anything, there are actions.
7 – I don’t believe in anything I believe in, neither do I believe in what others believe in. I don’t believe.
8 – I’m not a body nor on a planet. I’m not passing through life. I do not exist.
9 – You can’t know me. I have no idea of how I am.
10 – I do not agree or disagree with anyone. There’s no need to discuss.
Many will think I’m not religious, I’m an atheist or agnostic, that I do not believe in God or in other lives…
If that’s what you think of me, you are as wrong as you are right. It’s only one side of the coin. You still haven’t found what I am and what I feel. Those who get it will only feel in their heart that a tiny part of the Supreme Truth caressed their souls.
I WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE CLUES OF WHAT I AM NOT, SO THAT YOU CAN SEE IN YOURSELF WHAT IT IS.
FAMILY Decalogue for my children
Text taken from the book “From prison, from my Freedom” by Alberto José Varela:

Paula, my partner, came with our daughter Amelys of 1 year old, Elián and Aneley of 19, two of the three children I had with Marisa. There was also Anahí of 6 years old, who I had with Conchi.
There was no cake or candles, just looks, words and laughter.
That day, I wanted to make a gift; I gave them a code of suggestions for family life that I wrote for them and that said:
