Product Description

Frente a la muerte la esperanza de cada hombre, a menudo, entra en el valle de la prueba. Más todavía:  si se trata de la enfermedad y de la muerte de un muchacho, entonces es la vida humana misma lo que parece vacilar al borde abismal de lo incomprensible. Sin embargo, existen testimonios capaces de penetrar allí donde la razón se oscurece, como un rayo de sol que alumbra y calienta el corazón de quienes ya han dejado de esperar. La vida de Carlo Acutis es uno de estos rayos. De hecho ha sido como la luz de un relámpago en una tarde de verano que ha vencido la niebla de los miedos y de los sin sentidos, haciéndonos vislumbrar lo que verdaderamente hay más allá de la noche de la vida.

Questo libro contiene ora diversi sommari HTML che renderanno la lettura un vero piacere!<br /><br />Il libro è un racconto autobiografico dell'autore in un momento della sua vita in cui attraversa una crisi di malinconia esistenziale. Descrive la sua ricerca di risposte alle domande profonde: "Cosa uscirà da ciò che faccio oggi? cosa farò domani? Cosa uscirà dalla mia vita? E "Qual è il significato della vita? ", Senza risposte per lui e che rendono la vita" impossibile ".<br />Tolstoj parla della sua infanzia, del suo abbandono della sua fede ortodossa russa, della sua padronanza della forza, della sua volontà di potenza e di come, dopo aver raggiunto il successo finanziario e un considerevole status sociale, la sua vita non avesse più alcun significato.<br /><br />Dopo aver disperato i suoi tentativi di trovare risposte nella scienza, nella filosofia, nella saggezza orientale e nei suoi colleghi scrittori, "confessa" di aver trovato la risposta al suo dolore nelle profonde convinzioni religiose ortodosse dei cittadini comuni . Descrive come ha presentato il suo scetticismo razionale e l'orrore della "superstizione delle verità cristiane" al fine di ottenere la pace mentale di cui aveva bisogno per rendere possibile la sua "sopravvivenza".<br /><br />Il termine "confessione" è stato usato perché Tolstoy era ben consapevole di essere contrario ai pregiudizi anti-religiosi / atei che dominavano gran parte dell'élite laica russa ed europea (di default a causa delle carenze dell'ortodossia ).

In the face of death, the hope of every man is put to the test. When one is dealing with the illness and death of a young boy, one seems to oscillate on the edge of incomprehensibility. Yet there are testimonies that enter the darkness of the mind like a ray of light and warm the hearts of those who have ceased to hope. The life of Carlo Acutis is one of these rays of light. Indeed, it was the light of a lightning bolt on a summer’s night that overcame the darkness of fear and meaninglessness and permitted us to see what there truly is beyond the night of life.

Im Angesicht des Todes wird die Hoffnung des Menschen auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Nicht nur das: Wenn es sich um eine Krankheit handelt oder den Tod eines Jugendlichen, dann scheint das menschliche Leben eine Gratwanderung am Rand des Unbegreiflichen zu sein. Und doch gibt es Zeugnisse, die wie ein Sonnenstrahl das Dunkel des Verstandes erhellen und das Herz desjenigen erwärmen, der schon aufgehört hat zu hoffen. Das Leben von Carlo [Karl] Acutis ist ein solcher Sonnenstrahl. Ja mehr noch, es ist wie der Blitzstrahl in einer Sommernacht, der das Dunkel der Ängste besiegt und uns erlaubt hat zu sehen, was wirklich hinter der vorübergehenden Nacht des Lebens ist.

Face à la mort, l’espérance de chaque homme est mise à l’épreuve. À plus forte raison, quand il s’agit de la maladie et de la mort d’un jeune homme, la vie humaine elle-même semble osciller sur la crête de l’incompréhensible. Il existe pourtant des témoignages qui pénètrent dans l’obscurité de la raison comme un rayon de soleil et réchauffent le cœur de la personne qui a cessé d’espérer. La vie de Carlo Acutis est l’un de ces rayons de soleil. Ou mieux, elle a été la lumière d’un éclair dans une nuit d’été qui a vaincu les ténèbres des peurs et de l’absence de sens et nous permet de voir réellement ce qu’il y a au-delà de la nuit de la vie.

DIAMOND is the story of how early childhood trauma created in Ronald Hummons the resilience he needed to adapt to his dangerous environment. Being a product of rape, survived two abortion attempts, and beatings that left a 5 year old Ronald bloody and bruised gave him an enhanced capacity to learn survival methods that would prove effective in his journey to greatness., DIAMOND was created out of the trauma. Ronald's need for love and acceptance led him to create an identity that represented everything he desired to be. This identity gave him a sense of value that would replace his insecurities, the toughness would mask his gentle spirit, and the resilience to endure the pressure DIAMOND would have to endure to become the tool God needed him to be to impact the world.
