Ask a question

Here the advice:

Another?
  • "It's a mistake to confuse pity with love."
  • "Honor the divine in you."
  • "What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal."
  • "Die to the past in any moment."
  • "When you complain you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness."
  • "There is a false saying: How can someone who can't save himself save others? Supposing I have the key to your chains, why should your lock and my lock be the same?"
  • "Rhythm replaces strength!"
  • "Knocking at the door. It opens. I have been knocking from inside."
  • "Have a dialogue between the two opposing parts and you will find that they always start out fighting each other until we come to an appreciation of difference."
  • "There's always a possibility of richer maturation - of taking more and more responsibility for yourself and for your life...And this is what I hope...to make you understand how much you gain by taking re-sponsibility for every emotion, every movement you make, every thought you have...We touch each other by honestly being what we are, not intentionally making contact."
  • "Respect money!"
  • "You forgive yourself by realizing that nobody can act beyong their level of consciousness."
  • "My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am."
  • "What we think of others we actually think of ourselves, and therefore all attack is a symptom of insanity, an obsession with our own darkness, fear or self loathing."
  • "Cut the rope and go into a free fall. No, I don't mean “ending it all”, nothing suicidal. Nihilistic abyss is not so nihilistic, after all. At the very least you believe in its existence - that is already more than nothing. But what is more important, it is filled with unmet expectations. Life seems empty and meaningless and lacking… Lacking what exactly? It is lacking whatever you expected it to have. It is lacking your expectations. Those are your rope. You know that your expectations are not met, yet you are not willing to let go of them. Cut the rope. Wave bye-bye to your expectations and go into a free fall, exploring whatever happens to come your way. Every moment brings something new, and it is always something unexpected… if you drop the expectations! Don't make big plans. Just see what the next moment brings. It will never be empty or meaningless, I promise you, if you let go of the mental filter that cuts off everything but your expectations. That filter is what gives the world its nihilistic colors, not the world itself."
  • "A true work of art is an object that has power to draw our attention, 
to draw perception inwards, to its source of pure beauty. It is never the thought that is true, it is never the person that is loveable, it is never the object that is beautiful. Truth, love, beauty, they reside in the Self. They reside at the source of experience. They are our-self. Truth, Love, Beauty, can not be found anywhere else. Everything that we deeply long for: Truth, Love, Beauty Resides in the simple knowing of our own being as it is. It's knowing of itself, in us, as us."
  • ""We don't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people hearts.""
  • "Honor your talent."
  • "We know so little about one another. We embrace a shadow and love a dream."
  • "Beware of the temptation of seeing yourself unfairly treated."
  • "Truth is what is useful."
  • "We cannot change anything unless we accept it."
  • "It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; it is the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time."
  • "Let your heart govern where your hand moves. Treat life as if you are creating an exquisite piece of art. Don’t be afraid of a blank canvas."
  • "The rhetoric of discursive materials is one of the most salient representations of group ideology. In turn, ideology, particularly when it reflects and perpetuates social hegemony, has a normalizing effect on itself. Ideology shapes identity; identity shapes strategies to set process norms that create social cohesion. Norms of social cohesion become culture; culture reinforces ideology. When these components mirror social hegemony and replicate hegemonic power, they create institutions, like service organizations; these institutions then legitimate and normalize positions of social privilege. Ultimately, ideology and social hegemony reveal themselves through organizational and member practices and organizationally-produced discursive material."
  • "Sometimes God challenges you to find strength you don’t have. Only like this will you go beyond your imagined limits. You must be pushed so far that you are forced to be humble. Only then, when your pride and arrogance are crushed, will you discover muscles that are not yours. You will find and use the muscles of God. When you completely abandon yourself, your ego, this miracle becomes possible."
  • "The past feeds the future."
  • "Whatever you fight you strenghten, what you resist persists."
  • "It takes one to know one."
  • "Your emotions are reflections of your thought process."
  • "Go for a massage."
  • "Ich bin das, dass sich sich immer wieder selbst überwinden muss. Was nicht ist, kann nicht wollen. Nur wo Leben, da ein Wille. Wo Wille, da ist es der Wille zur Macht. Gutes und Böses gibt es nicht. Alle verschwiegenen Wahrheiten werden giftig. Alles Lebendige ist Gehorchendes Aber befehlen ist schwerer als Gehorchen. Das Lebendige befielt, Dem Lebendigen ging ich nach."
  • "Show, don't tell!"
  • "Be aware of virtue. You might only be self-serving. (But that's fine too)"
  • "What or whom does it serve, to act in this way."
  • "We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves"
  • "Be useless! Any talent you posess will merely attract the attention of those who exploit it. If you're strong you will die in battle, if you're clever you will be made to work, and then killed in times of fear: it is usually the intelligentsia that are slaughered by nervous goverments. So, be useless!"
  • "Love has the power to destroy or create."
  • "You are the cause of your feelings, not the effect."
  • "Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings."
  • "The world belongs to those who let go."
  • "If you can't live with yourself, then there must be two of you"
  • "Whatever is taken away will create an attraction for something more appropriate to who you are now, and who you are becoming."
  • "Learn to distinguish between an imperfect friend and a deadly enemy."
  • "Accept the challenges presented to you, be strong and flexible, and don't look back and be infinitely self-reliant."
  • "...nobody can stand truth if it is told to him. Truth can be tolerated only if you discover it yourself because then, the pride of discovery makes the truth palatable."
  • "Don't think even for a minute that an illusion isn't real."
  • "Every evil is formed by ignorance."
  • "You think that to close eyes on someone or something gives you control. It doesn't. It's cowardness, or worse: ignorance."
  • "Show leadership through integrity and self-respect. Define what success means to you. Consistency wins every time."
