Christian Western

Posted by Sylia on

As surely sense I am not referring to baptism name or the family. Perhaps these are some questions that always have been made at all times of mankind. There are a whole series of philosophical currents that give answers to these questions. In our Christian Western civilization include Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine and, years later, Aquino de Santo Tomas which establish the bases to find the answer. Some years ago, in Houston, Texas, I heard Og Mandino, author of the greatest salesman in the world, saying: you are the greatest miracle in the world. This sentence struck me tremendously. It is true, it is real.

You and I, all people, we are the greatest miracle in the world. We are unique, there is no there will be another equal person in the world. What wonder! It’s extraordinary, it’s a miracle. As I am fond of sports and acknowledge the strength of motivation I liked to see American football games, particularly saw play the team from the University of Notre Give me. I devoted to see the players, but it particularly directed my gaze to see in action to Lou Holtz, an extraordinary coach, expert in motivation. Lou inspired and motivated players at all times. One of his famous quotes is: I do not think that God has put us in this world to be ordinary.

Of course, we have been made in the image and likeness of God. We therefore possess an extraordinary inner strength, a potential without limits that only depends on each of us to put it into action at the time that you want. Bruce Jenner, one of the most complete athletes of the world who won the gold medal in the test of Decathlon at the Olympic Games of 1976, in his book Finding the Champion Within (finding the champion within you) says: we have a power that is deep within us, a power that most do not know what we have. Being unique in this world, you and I, we have control over our own destinies. Life is like an orchestra, and God has given, you and me, the baton So let our own lives. We are those who control the tones, times, rhythm, chords and the intensity of the music of the different instruments. Let us make our lives a beautiful Symphony filled with harmony, with beautiful sounds and richness of feelings. Life is like a book with blank pages and God has given us the inspiration and pen to fill these pages with thoughts and actions that we ourselves choose. We write our own lives, a history of successive achievements of permanent personal development, of love, happiness, success, with optimism, faith and hope and dreams to be performed. Life is like a box by painting and God gives us inspiration, imagination and the brush to paint with absolute freedom, using the colors and nuances that we want. Let us paint our own lives as a teacher, beautiful, unique, piece that nobody can never ever equal. Life is a work of art and you I are the architects to realize our own ideas and thoughts. We live the life fully giving itself as best we can. We have in every present moment that is in us, in our interior, our spirit in ourselves that extraordinary force that could lead us to success and happiness. You and I are a work of art. We are the greatest miracle in the world.

Posted by Sylia on

A key target is the Portada Natural Monument, located on the coast, a natural arch of rock on the surface of the water. It has a height of 43 meters, rises above the Pacific Ocean. Natural Park la Chimba has enough tourist attraction, above all by its a variety of species of animals and plants, due to their different microclimates within a small territory. In the event that you rented a car in Antofagasta, it is easy to arrive at the hand of the desert, of the Chilean artist Mario Irarrazabal sculpture. The Llullaillaco National Park is so difficult to pronounce how difficult to explore for its height and terrain. It is part of the Cordillera de los Andes and begins at a height of 3,000 meters to surpass 6,700 meters. Main destination for an excursion is usually the Llullaillaco volcano, 6739 meters height. Within the tour you can see the exceptional wildlife in the nature reserve even though it is very scarce, being a desert area.

We recommend a tour guided by professionals at the Park and if you decide to visit him on their own account, not you can refrain from a rental car because it is 270 km from Antofagasta. An excursion slightly lighter would be go to Morro Moreno National Park, which is one of the oasis of fog in the country and that there are only six in total. Its height of 1,100 meters It is almost always covered with clouds. The region can also offer beaches, some of them artificial. It is best to arrive by truck since many are outside the city: are the Municipal Spa to the South, Playa Paraiso, yellow beach and the Trocadero, among several others. During the summer, exposed to radiation from the Sun from morning until night, many places offer nightly baths.

A spectacular event is the massive bath at the Trocadero, which reaches up to five thousand people participate. To stay, the visitor has to choose between more than 60 options, among which are found from hotels to cabins, residential apartments and youth hostels. The most prestigious hotels are the Radisson, the Antofagasta Hotel, Holiday Inn Express or the desert Hotel of five stars. In the city there are also museums, theatres and other cultural institutions. In the Municipal Theatre of Antofagasta, you can attend one of the concerts of the Symphony Orchestra of Antofagasta. The Museo Regional de Antofagasta exposes above all historical samples and archaeological objects. There are several monuments, such as the ruins of the Huanchaca metals smelter or the Salt Spring, which also serves as a gastronomic Centre. Tourists should not miss Jose Fracisco Vergara or clock tower plaza in Plaza Colon. In summary, you can see that the city of Antofagasta if you have a true tourist attraction, although tourism is underdeveloped. We recommend that you rent a car in Antofagasta to reach points of tourist interest outside the urban area with greater comfort. There are several options of car rental in Antofagasta, among which rent the car at the airport is the most comfortable but also more expensive.
