These are some of my reflections on life.
This is another blog i have about actualization:
God is one thing and one thing only. Variety.
Habit: a string of repeated micro-decisions. Break the string often enough, and replace with another decision to form a new habit.
The reason you’re stuck where you are is because you’re comfortable there.
No matter how bad, or mediocre that place may be,
You like it there,
because what would it mean if the world changed for you?
What would be different of you?
You are everything you know.
I am made of parts therefore i am divided.
These parts are connected therefore i am whole.
I am one and i am many.
"Every right implies a responsibility; Every opportunity, an obligation, Every possession, a duty."
"I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living."
Our country is drinking a slow poison.
We die and revive every day.
Let your motivation in life be greatness. Love the world and the varied amounts of stimulation it provides. If we all worked together, we could have far more and better experiences.
Only together will we make the world great, because the world isn’t a man, nor an ethnicity, nor a religion, nor a country, the world is us, in our various shapes and forms.
The people you hate, the people you deserted, the people you shun, they are all parts of the same whole. Their lack, their weakness is a reflection your own lack and weakness. Therefore you must work to improve not only yourself but others. So that as you rise, others may rise with you, and so as you fall, others will be there to pick you up, if not to, to get you up there.
So appreciate greatness in others, help them, celebrate their triumphs, and give them hope when they are down. You don’t survive by yourself, you live from others, and the way you live for others, reflects back to you. You must give yourself entirely to the whole, because the whole is all you exist for. The greatest religion is and always has been the relationship you have with the world. Measure success not by how much you enrich yourself from others, but by how much you enrich the world.
Hope is the string you hold onto when everything else falls apart.
It is intangible, because you are so.
When nothing around you seems to work, you have no where else to look but inside.
It is then that you learn to trust in yourself.
We’re all the same people underneath, with different distortions on top. People see the layers that they themselves are in.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” - Genesis 1:26
