If grass looks greener on the other side, then go to that side and look across at your own lawn. You may come to appreciate what you have.
Tolerance towards others starts with acceptance of oneself.
Love yourself first before expect others to love you.
Don’t blame anyone.
True change cannot be accomplished by labeling people, but only by removing those labels through effort.
Pain,shame and isolation are effective ways to bring crude change.For true change,change should come from within.
Instead of expending energy to deny one’s flaws,we must use that energy for personal growth.
Being like someone else will get you accepted but not acknowledged.
Only those are acknowledged who are different from others.
You just treat the people the way you want them to treat you.Racists and sexists don’t really want more friends I guess.
I have learned more from my mistakes and that of the others than any other sources of learning and teaching.Doing something the wrong way sometimes sets us on the right way.When we understand what is bad and harmful,we pick out and implement what is good and virtuous.That’s why our evil past and deeds shouldn’t be hidden.They should serve as a reminder of our atrocities and downfalls to teach the future the value of peace and freedom they hold.To teach them greed and divisions will just harm oneself and we should all strive for unity and love.Acceptance is the key not ignorance.Because ignorance of both the good and bad has its own dire consequences.It is only sensible to teach the future generations about our mistakes so that they don’t go through what we have gone through again.Allow them to learn,make their own mistakes,learn again and pass on all the combined knowledge and experience to repeat the cycle.Our failure today will set the path to success tomorrow.
How stress works: you are like a child in the room.You use some stuff then you don’t.Or you repeatedly keep using the same stuff and don’t use the other things at all.You keep your stuff back in place or maybe you don’t.The more disorganized your room becomes,the more difficult your life gets when trying to do something in particular or something of significance.
In the same way the mind is made up of facts,beliefs and experiences.If you don’t keep them in place or scatter them around,the more blurry your cognition gets.And when you actually want something,you panic and go haywire.The only way to get rid of the mess is to start correction at the source.The key is to either fix the child (you) or fix the room (your mind).So either you change yourself to become more organized or you organize the room while staying true to who you are.Either adapt to the surroundings or construct your surroundings in such a way that they adapt to your ways.Either accept the change you make in you or accept the circumstances as they are.
We all gamble at some point in our lives.Some of us relish the prizes won,and some of us regret the choices lost.And every conscious being has a tendency to avoid risk that comes at a great cost.So much so that evolution has fixated in us certain reflexes to unconsciously avoid hurtful things.
Ironically,today some of us are voluntarily diving head-straight into life threatening risks.What happened to our survival instincts? Years ago when life was more unstable, we tried to gather (or forcibly take away from others) lots of resources and pass it onto our next generation.Now,we don’t feel the same threat anymore,so we nurture other species as our own,or others of our species as our own,with no feelings of competitiveness or inconvenience.We even engage in high stimulating activities out of nostalgia of our ancestors who had to escape from a bear or something every other day.
So,it goes onto show us that as competition for resources or levels of life-threats go down,we feel more secure and tolerant of each other.Today we see and feel discrimination because deep down we feel insecure of things being taken away from us.Once innovation stands in and everyone is provided for,the word threat itself will cease to exist.
