if one changes how one remembers it because one is never living in the past but only living in a memory of it.
How can one know whether the past created a memory of itself or whether one’s mind created a memory of it instead because one is never living in the past but only in a memory .
I hope that all of you are having a wonderful holiday season and winter.
I hope that this new year brings you all the things you have been working for.
I love you all.
More consciousness can also entail a better awareness of time.Compare seeing events on fast-forward and seeing them in real-time.
Because people are like mirrors,
you sit next to some people and you see ugly,
you see yourself stupid next to others,
you see yourself unclear and you do not know what to believe in,
and this creates endless thoughts of yours,
there are people you see not necessarily beautiful,
not necessarily ideal,
but only whole, or completely or simply in a way that you find acceptable.
You do not have to look for them,
they suddenly appear of the crowd,
you just have to be careful and,
if possible, get close to them.
Everyone wants to succeed in life but only a few will be truly happy for your success. The truth is, people will generally only support your goals and dreams until you make it & end up doing more than them.
Sadly, they want to see you do good, but never better than them!
Some moments, some people give me this feeling that perhaps, against all odds, tomorrow is not lost. And this sudden urge to break through all sadness and negativity overwhelms me and I restlessly want to get out to the streets and shout to the world that I will not be defeated.
The next suitable person you’re in light conversation with, you stop suddenly in the middle of the conversation and look at the person closely and say, “What’s wrong?”
You say it in a concerned way.
He’ll say, “What do you mean?”
You say, “Something’s wrong.
I can tell. What is it?”
And he’ll look stunned and say, “How did you know?”
He doesn’t realize something’s always wrong, with everybody.
Often more than one thing. He doesn’t know everybody’s always going around all the time with something wrong and believing they’re exerting great willpower and control to keep other people, for whom they think nothing’s ever wrong, from seeing it.
