Celebrating

what we hope for together

is better than fighting

over what we believe separately.

"The objection to fairy stories is that they tell children there are dragons. But children have always known there are dragons. Fairy stories tell children that dragons can be killed."

Das Leben ist der wichtigste Lehrmeister dem wir haben.
Wichtiger als tousende Bücher dieser Erde.
Den das Leben leistet uns Wiederstand und da durch können wir lernen.
Nur in Kampf findet der Mensch zu sich selber.
(Heini Staudinger östereichisches Schue-fabrikant)

The Life is the most important teacher that we have.
More Important then 1000 books this Earth.
Since the life provides  (yields) us resistance and through it we learn.
Only through fight, finds the Human him himself
(Heini Staudinger Austrian shoe maker)


P.S which reminds me to Sepp Holzer:
"Why you are here? Are you here to suffer or to live and collect experiences, so that you can get grip of things."

"Never believe fully in anybody else’s B.S. (Belief System), I don’t care if it’s Rajneesh, The Pope, L. Ron Hubbard, Al Gore, George Bush…I don’t care who it is, don’t swallow all of their belief system totally. Don’t accept all of their bullshit, all their B.S. The second rule is like unto to the first: Don’t believe totally in your own B.S. Which means that, as Bucky Fuller said, "The universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events.” Non-simultaneously.
The universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events. Which means any belief system or reality tunnel you’ve got right now is gonna have to be revised and updated as you continue to apprehend new events later in time. Not simultaneously. This is the natural functioning of the human brain. It’s the way children’s brains perform before they’re wrecked by the school system. It’s the way the minds of all great scientists and artists work. But once you have a belief system, everything that comes in either gets ignored if it doesn’t fit the belief system, or gets distorted enough so that it can fit into the belief system. You gotta be continually revising your map of the world.
-Robert Anton Wilson

Every moment in your life is unique.  You will never have two alike... Never.  This is the science of living: when you begin to appreciate every moment.  To have a heart so open, an understanding so beautiful, and a yearning for appreciation so complete that when that moment comes.... you see exactly what it is.   P. Rawat

Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid.

“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
