Act is a fact.
of humanity is not big words,
but small actions.
should not be divided into small and large.
Everything big starts from something small.
An alert mind moves naturally from one mood to another.
The more alert we are, the more sensitively and quickly we sense another person's inner state. The more anxious we feel, the less able we are to empathize with others.
Your life changes when you stop expecting appreciation and concentrate on giving it to others.
appreciation is not just brain work.
It involves the heart, eyes, mouth, and hands,
creating a force that changes the world.
There is no best actor, athlete, speaker, musician, singer - or human being. There are just differently fascinating, talented, and imperfect individuals, who need each other's support and appreciation to dare to be who they are and to do what they don't know they can do.
Lack of appreciation can be just as hurtful and offensive as physical violence. When a person is not seen as a person, he is deprived of the right to exist.
Status does not guarantee appreciation.
When we want to create miracles together, the worst obstacle is people, who only do what they are asked or required to do. Such people shy away from responsibility and keep their mouths shut when they should speak up. Because of them, we get less common good than we could create. And because of them, tyrants stay in power.
Power and arrogance are a dangerous - and way too common - combination!
Art of Living
Living is a
skill that cannot be mastered
without endless learning.
In light of today's understanding, the idea of separateness is absurd. It is wrong and dangerous because it leads to cold-hearted behaviour towards others. The only sensible way is to abandon the egoistic world view, and start acting genuinely together as one.
to ask stupid questions
than correct stupid mistakes.
If we ask
the wrong questions,
the answer doesn't matter.
It is easy
to answer questions
that have a correct answer.
Life's questions don't have.
Our brains are wired to hide their assumptions. We should consciously reveal them, and search for the most accurate words to describe them. A word is a button that can open doors to understanding.
Assumptions are loaded guns. They come from our collective consciousness. We don't invent them, we adopt them from the culture in which we live. Emotions also pass from one person to another. We share them, too. When one roars, the others easily start to raise their voices as well.
Wrong assumptions cause brain injury. We need a culture that does not damage the brain and does not defend assumptions when facts prove otherwise. We must learn to discuss assumptions freely, without fear of retribution.
It is not
always enough to exchange ideas.
Sometimes we have to change our assumptions.
Authenticity cannot be imitated.
Authenticity is always beautiful.
many ways to pretend,
but only one way to be authentic.
We already learn as children at school that it is more important than getting the teacher's praise to manage to avoid his reproaches. We want to succeed, but even more, we want to avoid the feeling of failure. Therefore, we begin to avoid things and situations, where we might get hurt. If a child gets a bike but is afraid of falling, he will never learn to ride. When an adult faces a huge challenge, he is so afraid of failing that doesn't even try to succeed.
When you sit in a chair, you feel your body touch the surface of the chair. You don't have to think about it, or make decisions. If we were in the same way aware of every thought as they arise, we wouldn't live the way we do now.
There is a simple and quick way to find meaning: awareness. When we are aware, we are free to act. Then we know, what is important, and what is not. Then we do what is right.
changes the process of image-making.
It upends our priorities and agendas.
The self is no longer our boss.
thing is not to see what we are thinking,
but to be aware that we are thinking.
Awareness is a direct route to life.
What is it
like to spend days doing nothing,
without schedules and pressures?
It is AWESOME.
