31 de enero. Lo esencial para vivir

A estas alturas de mi vida, debo reconocer algo que no es muy propio de los mortales: sin poseer dinero ni confort, me considero moderadamente rico y feliz. Lo que me hace pensar que ni el dinero ni la seguridad, palabras que odio por su capacidad de ser tergiversadas, así como por sus múltiples y peores concatenaciones, sean esenciales para vivir en este mundo. Aunque la extrema pobreza e inseguridad tampoco contribuyen a conservar la propia dignidad e integridad de la persona. Me conformo con lo esencial para ir viviendo, entendiendo por esencial lo que permite vivir con lo justo día a día. Con algo más, comienzan los problemas y necesidades ficticias que van destruyendo la esencia de la persona humana.

Debo reconocer que sólo una parte ínfima de los terráqueos vive cómodamente, con los bolsillos repletos, y el corazón podrido. Y otra parte, todavía más pequeña, con todas las seguridades creadas en su entorno excepto con la que nace de un corazón noble y una conciencia tranquila. La mayoría sufre o ha pasado por etapas que rayan con la preocupación económica, cuando no con la pobreza, la marginalidad o con el estrés. Muy pocos logran ser pobres de corazón, y menos aún, pobres de solemnidad.

Así que he decidido, por mi parte, compartir lo poco que conservo y pararme cada día en un punto diferente de la calle, desde donde vea pasar el gentío con sus habituales prisas y extender mi mano. No para pedir una limosna, sino para ofrecer mi punto de vista de esta vida, sin exigir nada a cambio.

Y lo hago de la única manera qué sé: escribiendo y sintiendo la música. De momento, puedo disponer de todo el tiempo del mundo para dedicarme a lo que realmente me gusta. Fruto de estas dos vivencias son estos retazos de mi vida, manifestados en este diario.

No es que pretenda despreciar otros conocimientos y menesteres. Igualmente me gustaría saber pintar, hacer escultura, magia, prestidigitación, disfrutar de un paladar exquisito, orientar a los demás por la palabra o por las acciones, descubrir otras fuentes de inspiración y de compromiso... Pero, me conformo con esos dos elementos que sustentan mis últimos años de mi vida.

Me parece una buena filosofía de vida, para mí lo esencial es una guitarra.
Sigo el Blog diariamente y me gusta.
Esta es la mejor manera de leer a Santiago Miró.

Cuanta gente se hará esta reflexión? A donde vamos, donde pretendemos llegar?
Hoy en día el poder económico manda, y mientras millones de personas mueren de hambre, la mayoría de los occidentales tenemos sobrepeso. La avaricia entra por nuestras bocas en forma de excesos, que seguramente algún día no muy lejano pagaremos.
muy pocos nos paramos a pensar en lo esencial de verdad, por que el ego no nos deja, queremos lo último, lo mejor, lo más caro, lo más innovador....
Que sería de nosotros si tuvieramos que empezar de cero?
Seguramente cuando el mundo y la historia den la vuelta,(que lo haran) solo sobreviviran los que han sabido vivir solo con lo eso, con lo esencial. Un beso desde Ibiza, Santiago.

Hola Santi,

por fin he encontrado un momentillo para poder echar un vistazo a tu Blog.

No he leido aún todos tus asuntos publicados, pero los que he podido leer me han gustado. Sobre todo el de 'La muerte de Kapuscinsky' como exaltación a la dignidad personal y el de 'Mi Aficion por la múscia' por resultarme tan familiar.

Creo que será bastante fácil engacherme a su lectura diaria, pues en ella los problemas mundanos se disipan, dejando paso a los valores más elementales de la vida, habitualmente eclipsados por el todopoderoso materialismo.

No obstante, me voy a permitir parafrasear a Silvio Rodriguez para hacerte un poco de crítica (constructiva):
'Tener no es signo de malvado
y no tener tampoco es prueba
de que acompañe la virtud'.

Pienso que lo que es realmente pernicioso, lo que nos puede crear 'problemas y necesidades ficticias', no es tener más de lo estrictamente esencial para ir viviendo, sino la incapacidad de ser solidario y altruista con los demás.
'con un poco de amor tanto me enriquecí que gastaba y siempre quedaba mi poco de amor', de nuevo Silvio.

Pese al matiz estoy de acuerdo contigo y todos deberiamos ser mas 'esenciales'.

Te animo a seguir con este Blog, pues me parece genial la idea de leer asuntos con formato periodistico saltándose la actualidad vigente y buscando una nueva dimension semántica al vocablo noticia, desconexionándola con el tiempo.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell
and gave it to my 4 year

old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and

screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL
