Be the change you want to see the world. -Gandhi
We have the ability to think freely, to decide, to choose.
When we learn something, the first thing we do, we imitate what someone does. Then we internalize , make it our own and then we pass it on.
No matter what environmental conditioning and imprinting you are born with, you are in charge and in possession of the power over your life and your actions.
Psychologically viewed; first love yourself, do therapy, first respect yourself. Feel your anger, without being your anger.
Then you can respect and love others, without projecting.
Spiritually be wise and open.
If you want love, you have to give it, if you want respect you have to give it.
Be kind and spread kindness and love and give it.
It has nothing to do with religion, but with humanity.
I am shattered by so much hate, aggressivenes, thoughtlessness, people running in packs.
It is terrifying.
“Under conditions of tyranny it is far easier to act than to think. ” (Hannah Arendt)*
It does not matter if it is the big crowds, if they are Haters, Terrorists, Rassists, people who are paralysed in fear and see themselves as victims.
„such remoteness from reality and such thoughtlessness." (Hannah Arendt)*
There is need for more people in our everyday life who will raise their thoughts and wisdom in every way possible. People, who are courageous.
I, Me, Mine. If it is about I, Me, Mine, then you will continue to run in circles. Raise, give the energy, practice compassion and kindness.
Without acting out of the need to be loved and seen, to fulfill anyones expectations and so on and so forth.
Start to think and be wise.
To be honest with oneself is uncomfortable. It means being radical, direct and total.
Looking in the mirror and seeing the demon within looking right back without running away. Not getting distracted by TV, work, consumption, drugs, food, internet.
Honesty and being real leads to being aware and conscious.
Here, in our country, we have the opportunity to choose.
To think free. This is a reminder for all of us.
“The trouble was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together“ (Hannah Arendt)*
“Clichés, stock phrases, adherence to conventional, standardized codes of expression and conduct have the socially recognized function of protecting us against reality.”
