Review the Instructions, Break off the Method // Revisa las Instrucciones, Rompe el M茅todo

Review the Instructions, Break off the Method // Revisa las Instrucciones, Rompe el M茅todo

聽 聽Fotograf铆a: Michal Macku

I love to read the instructions for use of electronic devices.

If I have to go through 523 steps to make the device work and when I finish it doesn鈥檛 function correctly, no problem. I return back to step 1 and start again. I've always had a lot of patience.

About fifteen years ago a friend of mine told me: "Do you realize Mamen what that means?".

I replied, "Yes, I have made a mistake in any of those 523 steps".

My friend said: "Noooo... You grab the method to evade responsibility for errors".

WOW! I stayed poker faced, but I got the idea. 馃槈

Life certainly has no instructions and therefore improvisation is one of the values 鈥嬧媡o be considered. We constantly improvise, as actors in a theater on a huge stage with another supporting actors entering and leaving, and interacting with us.聽As in the best Broadway productions, we have a varied repertoire of masks depending on who we associate in the stage of Life.

No script. No instructions.

Sometimes after years using an electronic device, someone tells you about a functionality you didn鈥檛 know and somehow it facilitates your work.聽It happens the same in Life. Over the years each of us have been developing our own instructions and sometimes the experiences of another person can facilitate you new and easy tips.

Let's go back to my friend years ago.聽Another of these comments/gifts he gave me was: "Mamen, stop thinking and start feeling".

My methodical answer was: "And how is that done?? How many steps must I take to get it?鈥.

A lot of laughs by both of us. 馃槀

Fortunately during that time I have discovered (and I'm still discovering) my own stunts to get it, and I listen to my guts more than to my mind. It is another way of living, another way of being on stage, and certainly that鈥檚 my choice!

Reality now writes my 鈥淟ife instructions鈥 with such precision and such a sense that I could not find a better scriptwriter. Although sometimes my tiny human mind comprehends that sense days, months or even years later.

I don鈥檛 fight against Reality any more and I love that feeling, like a little girl who never stops learning.

Trusting. Enjoying.


Me encanta leer las instrucciones de uso de los aparatos electr贸nicos.

Si tengo que seguir 523 pasos para que un aparato funcione y cuando termino de seguirlos no funciona, no pasa nada. Regreso de nuevo al paso n煤mero 1 y vuelta a empezar. Siempre he tenido mucha paciencia.

Hace unos quince a帽os un amigo me coment贸: 鈥溌縏e das cuenta Mamen de lo que eso supone?鈥.聽

Respond铆: 鈥淪铆, que me he equivocado al realizar alguno de los 523 pasos鈥.

Mi amigo: 鈥淣oooo鈥 Supone que te agarras al m茅todo para intentar evadir la responsabilidad de equivocarte鈥.

隆Toma ya! Me qued茅 con cara de p贸ker pero comprend铆 la idea. 馃槈

Sin duda la Vida no tiene instrucciones de uso y por lo tanto la improvisaci贸n es uno de los valores a tener m谩s en cuenta. Improvisamos continuamente, como actores en un teatro con un escenario enorme en el que entran y salen otros actores de reparto con los que tenemos que interactuar.聽Al igual que en las mejores producciones de Broadway, tenemos un variado repertorio de m谩scaras seg煤n con qui茅n nos relacionemos en el escenario de la Vida.

Sin gui贸n. Sin instrucciones.

En ocasiones, despu茅s de estar a帽os utilizando un aparato electr贸nico aparece alguien y te habla de una funcionalidad que desconoc铆as y que te facilita de alguna manera tu trabajo.聽En la Vida ocurre lo mismo. Cada uno va elaborando con los a帽os sus propias instrucciones y a veces las vivencias de otra persona te facilitan trucos interesantes para ti.

Volvamos a mi amigo del principio.聽Otro de los regalos en forma de comentario que me hizo fue: 鈥淢amen, deja de pensar y empieza a sentir鈥.聽

Y mi met贸dica respuesta fue: 鈥淵 eso, 驴c贸mo se hace?? 驴Qu茅 pasos tengo que seguir para conseguirlo?鈥.

Carcajada general por parte de ambos. 馃槀

Por suerte en este tiempo he descubierto y sigo descubriendo mis propios trucos para conseguirlo, y escucho m谩s a mis v铆sceras que a mi mente. Es otra forma de vivir, otra manera de estar en el escenario, y sin duda 隆me quedo con ella!

La Realidad escribe ahora mis 鈥渋nstrucciones de Vida鈥 con tal precisi贸n y con tal sentido que no podr铆a encontrar mejor guionista. Aunque a veces mi peque帽ita mente humana comprenda ese sentido d铆as, meses o incluso a帽os despu茅s.

Ya no lucho contra la Realidad y me encanta esa sensaci贸n, como una ni帽a peque帽a que no deja de aprender.

Confiando. Disfrutando.

#5 I feel really happy about this opportunity to write in English, not only speak the language what I do not so often as I would like. And for me it鈥檚 another of the huge advantages about beBee, that provides us the opportunity to get in contact with a vast bee community in the world, just for fun. So far, so close. ;) So really happy to be here sharing a little bit of my time with you. Have a lovely day you both! 馃尯

#6 Eyyy Ken Boddie thanks SO MUCH for the digital flowers!! I can feel the fragrance鈥 So kind of you! And about instructions, I must say I鈥檓 not the one I used to be, luckily!!!! 馃槀 And sometimes I also take the 鈥渄ive right in and play鈥 method. But now I like to read them when I鈥檝e been using whatever it is for a couple of weeks, for example, so I got the basics using the device and it鈥檚 easy to improve the use. Anyway, I always think there are many little and big advantages I miss because I don鈥檛 know them, so it鈥檚 simply great when I get a new one! Have you seen the film 鈥淟ost in Translation鈥? With brilliant Bill Murray. Similar to the sign in the station in Japan鈥 Hope you were not in a hurry!! 馃槈

Excellent Mamen Delgado! Life is the name of learning. No learning, no life. Only the death stops all the learnings. Wonderful buzz!
