The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

La Bodega

Restaurant La Bodega (La Condesa. Mexico City)


One needs the mood of a warrior for every single act, otherwise one becomes distorted and ugly. There is no power in a life that lacks this mood.
      A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. But once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions.



A warrior could be injured but not offended. For a warrior there is nothing offensive about the acts of his fellow men as long as he himself is acting within the proper mood.
~Carlos Castaneda


Uno necesita el ánimo de un guerrero para cada uno de sus actos -dijo-.
De otro modo uno se enchueca y se afea.
No hay poder en una vida que carece de este ánimo. Mírate tú mismo.
Todo te ofende y te inquieta.
Chillas y te quejas y sientes que todo el mundo te hace bailar a su son.
Eres una hoja a merced del viento.
No hay poder en tu vida. ¡Qué feo debe de sentirse eso!

"Un guerrero, en cambio, es un cazador. Todo lo calcula. Eso es control. Pero una vez terminados sus
cálculos, actúa. Se deja ir. Eso es abandono.
Un guerrero no es una hoja a merced del viento. Nadie lo empuja; nadie lo obliga a hacer cosas en contra de sí mismo o de lo que juzga correcto.
Un guerrero está entonado para sobrevivir, y sobrevive del mejor modo posible."

-Un guerrero podría sufrir daño, pero no ofensa -dijo-. Para un guerrero no hay nada ofensivo en los actos de sus semejantes mientras él mismo esté actuando dentro del ánimo correcto.

Así me sentía exactamente. Don Juan parecía compenetrado de mis sentimientos. Dijo que mi estado de ánimo le recordaba una canción y empezó a cantarla en tono bajo; su voz cantante era muy agradable y la letra
me arrebató:
"Qué lejos estoy del suelo donde he nacido.
Inmensa nostalgia invade mi pensamiento.
Al verme tan solo y triste cual hoja al viento,
quisiera llorar, quisiera morir de sentimiento."
~Carlos Castaneda
