Morality Shows in Great Wisdom

The power of thoughts

What does morality do for you?

Power is ultimate aphrodisiac.

If a house be divided against itself that house can’t stand.

Let's go hand in hand not one before another.

Only equals can be friends.

You cannot judge another person until you have walked a mile in his moccasins.

Progress is a nice word but change is its motivator and change has its enemies.

If we accept and acquiesce in the face of discrimination we accept the responsibility ourselves and allow those responsible to solve their conscience by believing that they have our acceptance and concurrence.

We should therefore, protest openly everything that smacks of discrimination.

No written law has ever been more binding than unwritten custom supported by popular opinion.

Never throw away hastily any old faith tradition or convention they are the result of the experience of many generations.

A stranger must conform to his host's customs.

To do exactly as your neighbors do is the only sensible rule.

Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul.

She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness, dull, callous and indifferent.

The fish dies because he opens his mouth.

I could never divide myself from any man upon the difference of an opinion, or be it anger and with his judgment for not agreeing with me in that from which perhaps within a few days.

I should dissent myself.

I am not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I have always been a freak.

So I have been a freak all my life and I have to live with that you know I am one of those people.

I wouldn't have turned out this way, if I didn't have all those old-fashioned values to rebel against.

The young always have the same problem how to rebel and conform at the same time.

They have now solved this by defying their parents and copying one another.

The man who never submitted to anything will soon submit to a burial mat.

Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers.

All men should have a drop of treason in their veins.

The power of movement

How to Understand Yourself and Other People Even Better

Understand yourself better and look at other people as capable too.

What allows you to understand yourself and others better?

Think about this carefully when you take certain actions personally, it is a failure in understanding the other person.

You become quite erratic about what is said or being done.

Taking things to heart can put you off socially.

If you think you are a mind reader forget it, sometimes you can be wrong about what the other person is thinking.

The constant pessimism will get you nowhere.

Know what you are capable of.

When there is a disaster avoid thinking of the worst.

Looking at another person's actions can make you feel rejected in some ways.

For example:

Instead, of making your focus on what is being said, you are paying attention to what is of no interest to you.

The little time spent looking at what has no interest to you can make the opportunity a worthless one.

Avoid thinking of only the bad stuff what about the good stuff?

Achieve the positive way don't let a little angry someone spoil your achievement or happy day.

Not all the same rules apply to you, in some cases rules may not apply to your needs.

Look at what you require not what others think you should and don't need.

Be consistent in what you do.

Don't believe in what others say, and that people deserve to be the way they are.

See situations from all sides, never focus only on one side, it won't open your eyes to other avenues.

Don't believe in motivating yourself by self-criticism, it won't work.

You must know the kind of behavior of a person before acting on their feelings.

Don't think that you can have everything or stay without it if you can't have it, more like looking at yourself as a complete failure.

Sometimes what you do won't be worth it at all.

Don't expect too much from life just what you really need.

What you should do and must do is different.

Judging what you think is right may not be for every other person. Think for yourself and not for others.

Don't go overboard on investments.

Some individuals are delusional, they don't believe in facts.

You shouldn't push yourself too much into thinking that if you don't feel good today then tomorrow will be the same.

Who knows what you will feel like the next day?

Avoid thinking someone is a loser, and keep on saying it without the actual proof.

In other words don't label someone you don't know much about.

Don't belittle yourself even after achieving an award. Irrespective in which category you achieved the award, the point is you have it, and that should count for more than for which subject you have it for.

Mistakes are made just learn to live with it or change if you can make the change.

Small issues shouldn't be turned into big issues for no reason.

See things as you choose to, don't view things like others do, you are allowed to make your own choices.

Do something on your own if you want it done, don't over-generalize, and stop blaming other people for your wrong doing.

Don't think that your child is better than the other.

Avoid over-estimation.

If you need to explain a situation do it in detail, not half finished.

Avoid self-sabotaging. Don't multitask.

If you think that repeating the same mistakes will change any plans think again!

It would only cause more problems.

You can change your lifestyle if you let it be, saying you can't make it extremely difficult to go on with life will destroy your lifestyle.

Be responsible for your conversations and actions.

Live and learn from past experiences to move on to better you.

Life's lessons are motivating

Most of you want the same things in life, trying to accomplish such goals can be challenging, like for example you want to make new friends, have worthwhile career and to eventually meet someone.

You want to move on to a better life, and be happier; it is not a surprising effort.

Do you think Fitting In is belonging?

You are so wrong, if you think fitting in is belonging.

It is your worst obstacle and barrier to your life, one often feels uneasy when with others, but self-acceptance is very important, knowing yourself is what counts.

If you know yourself better than others life can be much easier to deal with and at your level is best.

Why chase for something you may never get?

You become courageous and self-worthy if you know what you want from life.

The lessons you take for granted can improve your life.

Showing guilt is one of the ways of showing acceptance. Motivation is the key to a changed life.

Often you feel shame and confuse it with guilt.

The degrading thought about you comes to mind, and the problem here, is you don't know how to show shame instead you feel guilt.

Making mistakes and apologizing is a sign of guilt, and shame feels a bit different than guilt. You can change from feeling guilty to feeling shame.

You know what you did was wrong and improve from that incident.

Do you think lessons learned with perfection will allow you to achieve the best?

One may think the best way is to do things to perfection, to avoid any pain or blame, but you don't realize what perfectionism does to an individual.

Do you believe in direct thoughts?

      I've been away for a while.... not too far from your place (compare to Canada). I was in Belgium, Holland, Germany and Ireland :-)

      Now, I try to get back in the rhythm of things.... but I have to give art workshops in some recreation centres and that takes a lot of time to prepare as well!

      Have a great week!
