novidades e outras coisas

Habituados que estamos, por um lado a viver como se a velocidade por si só desse sentido à vida e, por outro lado, a associar a aceleração com a intensidade, é cada vez mais comum reagirmos com ansiedade a qualquer vislumbre de lentidão e identificarmos a mais pequena desaceleração com uma assustadora ameaça de tédio.

Como se, quando finalmente há tempo, faltasse a paciência ? (M.M. Carrilho in DN)

  1. Bom dia Pepe,
    eu concordo com esse paradigma mas tenho alguma dificuldade a integrar un desprendimento mental.
    Viver na certeza absoluta de que tudo não vai acabar com a morte fisica, porque a Mente/ Alma espiritual encontra-se em um novo corpo… muito rapidamente.
    Esta é a essência da filosofia budista… assim, portanto, que realmente é o tempo?

    Desculpa, deixo-lhe informações muito interessantes sobre o seu país maravilhoso … provavelmente já sabe desta organização mundial….
    Um grande abraço da Suiça

    *****************
    Dear friends,

    *A massive online campaign by the Avaaz community in Brazil has just won a
    stunning victory against corruption*.

    The “clean record” law was a bold proposal that banned any politician convicted
    of crimes like corruption and money laundering from running for office. With
    nearly 25% of the Congress under investigation for corruption, *most said it
    would never pass.* But after *Avaaz launched the largest online campaign in
    Brazilian history*, helping to build a petition of over 2 million signatures,
    500,000 online actions, and tens of thousands of phone calls, *we won!*

    Avaaz members fought corrupt congressmen daily as they tried every trick in the
    book to kill, delay, amend, and weaken the bill, and won the day every time. The
    bill passed Congress, and *already over 330 candidates for office face
    disqualification*!

    One Brazilian member wrote to us when the law was passed, saying:

    /I have never been as proud of the Brazilian people as I am today!
    Congratulations to all that have signed. Today I feel like an actual citizen
    with political power./ — Silvia

    Our strategy in Brazil was simple: *make a solution so popular and visible that
    it can’t be opposed, and be so vigilant that we can’t be ignored*.

    *This victory shows what our community can do* – at a national level, in
    developing nations, and on the awful problem of corruption. Anywhere in the
    world, we can build legislative proposals to clean up corruption in government,
    back them up with massive citizen support, and fight legislators who try to
    block them.

    *France’s Le Monde called our “impressive and unprecedented petition” campaign a
    “spectacular political and moral victory for civil society.”* And while this
    victory may be a first, we can make it the precedent for global citizen action.

    Amazingly, our *entire Brazil campaign was made possible by just a couple of
    Avaaz team members*, serving over 600,000 Avaaz members in Brazil. The power of
    the Avaaz model is that technology can enable a tiny team to help millions of
    people work together on the most pressing issues. It’s *one of the most powerful
    ways a small donation can make a difference* in the world.

    5.6 million of us are reading this email — if a small fraction of us donate
    just $3 or $5 per week, or 50 cents per day, the entire Avaaz team will be
    funded and we can even expand our work on corruption and a range of issues.

    We’ve seen the heart-wrenching movies about street kids and desperate urban
    poverty in Brazil, and we know that across the world political corruption preys
    on our communities and saps human potential. In Brazil, our community has helped
    turn the tide and usher in a new era of transparent, accountable politics.
    *Let’s seize the opportunity and begin to fight corruption everywhere it’s
    needed today*.

    With hope,

    Ricken, Luis, Graziela, David, Ben, Maria Paz, Benjamin and the entire Avaaz Team

    • Creio que não entendeu bem a intenção do autor do texto, Claudine. Precisamente, ele descreve este fenómeno contemporâneo em que “havendo” tempo deixa de haver disponibilidade para aquilo que a Claudine diz ser o “despreendimento mental”…ou seja, se bem entendo o autor, este é o paradoxo do “nosso tempo”!

      Obrigado pela informação, é verdade que já tinha conhecimento e aplaudo a iniciativa.

      Mas deixe-me esclarecer que sou português (apesar de também me sentir brasileiro). Não tem problema, também julguei que a Claudine fosse italiana…
