The day all of the humanity unites to solve world problems, it is the day we’ll become undefeated.
An accommodating attitude helps us understand the world better than an expecting attitude.
When we see things for what they truly are, the illusion of how they should be goes away. And we get to see the reality, as we should.
Truth guides us. Illusion strays us from the path. Believing in an illusion feels good, but believing in the truth is liberating. Because in the end, the truth comprises our reality, and illusion, our minds.
Anyone can do simple things. But some people can do simple things in such exceptional ways that they become extraordinary.
An institution itself is not good or bad. It’s the people within that make it what it is.
If humans were truly selfish, then they would work toward preserving the environment, not destroying it.
After all who lays waste to their home?
There’s no way to save just the good person. For both good and bad lies within.
People who develop stereotypes forget to include exceptions. It feels good to have symmetrical patterns or trends without the glitches in between. But it is that asymmetry that makes the design unique.
Comparison is a way to feel the pressure to accomplish more, because it steals your joy. And as we all know how much any living thing especially us humans, love to strive towards balance and happiness.
Having talent or not is equivalent to having or not having privileges.
Everyone’s born with a certain level of capacity and facility. The privileged (both in talent and resources) have an edge or headstart to what comes ahead in life. The talent and resources not put to use will perish away.
The under previleged are at disadvantage compared to the the privileged. But that doesn’t mean they have no right to become privileged through hard work. That’s how all the rags to riches stories go.
Whatever you’re born with is impermanent. It can be improved upon further with planning and practice or get lost within a blink of an eye.
The situation may not seem favourable to the disadvantaged group. But think. Those who lack resources have more room to explore and learn. Surely having resources at hand saves time. But not having them makes you struggle and that struggle makes you resilient.
To sum it up, though the destination is similar for everyone, the paths taken are diverse. Are you the kind of person who prefers to enjoy the journey or taste the victory of reaching the goal?
Humans are not wholly driven by primitive desires. We are partly driven by principles. That’s what set us apart from other species.
