In the Essence of Life
ΣΤΗΝ-ΚΑΡΔΙΑ-ΤΗΣ-ΖΩΗΣ
Here is small extract from the book.

Many years ago, one summer day, I closed the door behind me and said to myself: How heavy it weighs upon me this inclination, this urge toward the true, the real, the sure thing.

Why does this dark tracker continuously follow me? I want to rest but it does not let me. So many things tempt me to stop. No, I must still go on! …

And as I had to go on, the only thing I did was to frequently glance back with fury at the most beautiful things of life which though were not able to keep me – for all the outer sources of happiness and of satisfaction are by their nature transient. Deep inside me I always felt the need to fulfill my real purpose in life, to find my own path and not to travel on a random road following targets that our not mine, I have not chosen them. That is the reason I was not obliged to follow the flock of sheep. I had to be the boss of myself, to live wholeheartedly in the “core” or even better “in the essence of life”.

THE MAGICAL SHIELD OF SOLACE

 

Never-ending spring: Solace, daughter of contemplation and culture is a magical shield of the soul against the turmoil of times and the calamities that veil our earthly passing. The book of Costantino Salis titled “Dritto al cuore della vita.” (Right in the Essence of Life) is a work imbued with the calming world of awareness, softening the thistles of time which goes by with an eternal movement and moving in the bed of the wonderful fellow traveller who is Solace; it is Solace who allows us to look proudly beyond the movement, with an angle that brings on the perspective blooming of every thistle. In the scene of triumphant mediocrity, it is almost amazing that this rare work of Costantino Salis was an immediate great success and received the philosophical dissertation UNESCO award. A hundred years ago Max Nordau wrote: “it would be horrible for humanity if the splendors of ancient Athens were lost behind us.” Today, due to Costantino Salis, those splendors are even brighter and more enlightening. Here is a book that is also a warm trip: recommended to all.
