What to do?

Make sure you enjoy your journey and the goal will come in no time.

Explore and find ways to experience beyond your physical and mental self.

You must be straight with yourself.

Get yourself beyond the survival being.

Align you physical, mental and energy dimensions to get access to your deeper core.

Embrace death and enhance life.

Hold the right identity. Identify with the entire cosmos.

It's very easy to love the cosmos because it's not here with you, you got to love somebody next to you, there's lots of problems, the instinct of wanting to set up boundaries is so deep.

There is only one thing about you which needs preservation, that's your physicality, this body must be preserved. Because if you break it you can't fix it. Suppose I take out all your thoughts, all your emotions, all your ideas, all your philosophy, all your belief systems and trash them right here, break them into pieces you can come up with fresh thoughts, fresh emotions, fresh belief systems, fresh philosophies - just like that. So all those must be put everyday into shredder. You must have a polarizer, because shredder means they'll go again pick it up and fix it. You must have a pulverizer for yourself before you go to bed - today's ideas, today's starts, today's belief systems, today's experiences.

You must leave the dead to the dead.

Just do effort, but it has to be incisive, focused, calibrated, right kind of action, right place, right timing. For all of it to happen you need perception and active inteligence. So look constantly for the ways to enhance your perception and intelligence, the rest will happen anyway. If you can see the life the way it is, you have the necessary inteligence to conduct it well. Enhance your perception.

Now the economy's down, the taps are all closed up, it's time to come meditate, walk in the mountains. … When there was money, it took away your time and life.

Drop your believes, get the clarity of admitting known and unknown, see for your self and remind your self that you are mortal.

If it's uncomfortable then do the change. If you are unwilling or unable to change then accommodate. Never complain.

Go where ever you want to go, but do it steadily. You keep on changing your direction, you end-up going in circles.

What to do?

revert to the present moment

see the opportunity in every disaster

Or, in some cases, giving the middle finger to the people trying to hold you down and blowing right through their evil, disgusting rules.

Start thinking like a radical pragmatist: still ambitious, aggressive, and rooted in ideals, but also imminently practical and guided by the possible.

Think water. When dammed by a man-made obstacle, it does not simply sit stagnant.

What to do?

Man can only go forward by developing his reason, by finding a new harmony, a human one, instead of the prehuman harmony which is irretrievably lost.

One is aware, for instance, of a sense of tiredness or depression, and instead of giving in to it and supporting it by depressive thoughts which are always at hand, one asks oneself "what happened?" Why am I depressed? The same is done by noticing when one is irritated or angry, or tending to daydreaming, or other escape activities. In each of these instances the important thing is to be aware of them, and not to rationalize them in the thousand and one ways in which this can be done; furthermore, to be open to our own inner voice, which will tell us - often rather immediately - why we are anxious, depressed, irritated.

--Erich Fromm

What to do?

Build your house on granite. By granite I mean your nature that you're torturing to death, the love in your child's body, your wife's dream of love, your own dream of life when you were sixteen. Exchange your illusions for a bit of truth. Throw out your politicians and diplomats! Take your destiny into your own hands and build your life on rock. Forget about your neighbor and look inside yourself! Your neighbor, too, will be grateful. Tell your fellow workers all over the world that you're no longer willing to work for death but only for life. … And first and foremost, think straight, trust the quiet inner voice that tells you what to do.

Strike by working for yourself, your children, your wife or woman, your society, your product, or your farm. Make it plain that you have no time for a war, that you have more important things to do. Outside every big city on earth, mark off a field, build high walls around it, and there let the diplomats and marshals of the earth shoot each other.

What we can aspire to is to be the best of our kind of people. To do that we've got to know exactly what we are …

--Orson Bean

What to do?

We need desperately to develop our sensitivity to evil, just as we need to develop our sensitivity to good, for we cannot overcome that which we don't know. So few people can smell evil, sensitivity or vicariously, precisely because they have failed to develop their sense of values.

Our days cries for moral leadership. We must mobilize our compassion and the intrinsic moral goodness of America to break the power chain of divine sovereignties and permit the human state to succeed the military state. For it is the moral goodness of America that makes this country great, the goodness that recognizes the infinite intrinsic value of the human person. We need to translate this moral goodness into international relations. We need to export it, for, in the long run, it -- rather our wealth, our standard of living, and our named power -- is what attracts the rest of the world to America. I have no doubt that the Soviet Union fears our goodness much more than our badness.

Mt 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Mt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mk 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Lk 3:10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise. Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Lk 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Lk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Lk 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Lk 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Lk 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

What to do?

Life is not easy. What we need is a little empathy for ourselves.

Before we can get to where we're going, we need to know where we are. When it comes to understanding our own emotions, where most of us are is lost.

…take from each [system] what you want and reject the rest, and never label yourself as one of a school.

What to do?

Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.

--Sigmund Freud

What to do?

If you are miserly by nature, associate with the generous and they will infect you, opening up everything that is tight and restricted in you. If you are gloomy, gravitate to the cheerful. If you are prone to isolation, force yourself to befriend the gregarious. Never associate with those who share your defects - they will reinforce everything that holds you back. Only create associations with positive affinities. Make this a rule of life and you will benefit more than from all the therapy in the world.

If it does not matter in the long run whether the other person agrees with you - or if time and their own experience will make them understand what you mean - then it is best not even to bother with a demonstration. Save your energy and walk away.

You must be the mirror, training your mind to try to see yourself as others see you.

--Robert Greene

What to do?

Be!

While having is based on some thing that is diminished by use, being grows by practice. (The "burning bush" that is not consumed is the biblical symbol for this paradox.) The power of reason, of love, of artistic and intellectual creation, all essential powers grow through the process of being expressed. What is spent is not lost, but on the contrary, what is kept is lost.

--Erich Fromm
