Soul pancake: Woman Gets PERFECT SCORE on The Happiness Test! | The Science of Happiness
I wake up and I say this day I choose to be happy, well and complete. Then I thank God for letting me get up and the fact that I have running water and a toilet, soap and toothpaste. (gratitude) There are people in the world who don’t have any of these and food. Sometimes we get up with „I can’t make it today” then we have to realize that we are truly blessed. Then I thank God for peace in my house, I have peace in my house and I meditate and then after I meditate I have my prayer. I just say, okay God, how may I serve you today, who can I help today? And finally, I watch cartoons. And when I watch the cartoons I wait for the answers I just asked. And that’s a very happy beautiful day for me. Cartoons never have a problem and there is always an end to it, right? Something good happens at the end. I have several cartoons that I watch until my day begins. And therefore I don’t have an attitude, I am glad to be here.
The School of Life : Alain de Botton - Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person
All of us are addicts not injecting heroin as such but addicts int he sense we need to to redefine what addiction is like to define addiction not in terms of the sustant you are taking in other words I am a heroin addict…No. addiction is basically any pattern of behavior whereby you can not stand to be with yourself and certain of the more uncomfortable thoughts and emotions that come from being on your own. And so you can be addicted to almost anything as long as it can keeps you away from yourself, so it was it keeps you away from tricky self-knowledge. And most of us are addicted thanks to all sort of technologies and distractions…etc. We can have a good life where we almost certainly be guaranteed to not to spend any time with ourselves. We don’t have to talk with ourselves and it’s a disaster. Because until you don’t know yourself you can’t properly relate to another person.
We’ve been told that the way to find the good partenr is to follow your instinct follow your heart. We think we are out to find partners who will make us happy. But not. We are out to find partners who will feel familiar. Another mistake is that we tend to think that the a true lover will guess what is in our minds. Understand ous wordlessly. Read our souls. This is a big mistake. The root to be in a good marriage is to be a good teacher. In order to teach well you will be to relaxed you need to accept that maybe your partner won’t understand and also you need a culture within a couple who are going to teach each other and therefore also learn from one another.Probably you will believe when somebody tries to tell you something about yourself is a little ticklish a little uncomfortable that they are attacking you. They are not. They are trying to make you into a better person. We have to accept that the other person will going to want to educate us and it’s not criticism. They are just try to make us into a better version.There is hope you have to find a good enough partner.
„Marry, and you will regret it. Do not marry, and you will also regret it. Marry or do not marry, you will regret it either way. lIS Whether you marry or you do not marry, you will regret it either way. Laugh at the stupidities of the world, and you will regret it; weep over them, and you will also regret it. Laugh at the stupidities of the world or weep over them, you will regret it either way. Whether you laugh at the stupidities of the world or you weep over them, you will regret it either way. Trust a girl, and you will regret it. Do not trust her, and you will also regret it. Trust a girl or do not trust her, you will regret it either way. Whether you trust a girl or do not trust her, you will regret it either way. Hang yourself, and you will regret it. Do not hang yourself, and you will also regret it. Hang yourself or do not hang yourself, you will regret it either way.” (Either/Or by Søren Kierkegaard)
The School of Life: Why We Eat Too Much
It’s clear that a great many of us eat too much. And in response, a huge industry has grown up which advises us to consume more quinoa, pomegranate and fennel salad and, as often as we can, kale and apple soup.
But this is entirely to misunderstand why we start eating excessive amounts. It has nothing to do food, and therefore trying to change our diet isn’t the most logical place to focus our efforts. We eat too much because what we’re really hungry for isn’t available.
In other words, it isn’t food we crave.
We know that, when reaching for a tube of potato chips or biting into yet another burrito that the problem doesn’t lie there. We just don’t know where else to turn and there is, at least, a short-term satisfaction to be found.
We eat too much because we hate ourselves too intensely to have the necessary respect for our own bodies. Our tragedy isn’t our unconstrained appetite. But rather, the difficulty we have in getting access to the emotional and psychological things that would nourish our broken souls.
The diet industry has latched onto the symptoms of our unhappiness, not their causes – and therefore the solutions it offers can only ever be temporary and fragile. It can’t make us lastingly thin because it is not engaging with what made us manically fat.
A couple of hundred years ago it was almost impossible for most people to find anything very pleasant to eat. Since then, a vast quantity of human ingenuity has been devoted to enticing the palate. We have succeeded beyond our wildest expectations. But in so many other areas, we have hardly begun to supply ourselves reliably with what we long to consume, which are, to put it plainly: understanding, tenderness, forgiveness, reconciliation and closeness. We eat too much not because we are (as we brutally accuse ourselves) greedy, but because we live in a world where the shelves are still bare of the real ingredients we crave.
Wass Albert: Az “Igazit” keresed?
„Én is azt kerestem sokáig,
s mikor megtaláltam, rájöttem, hogy hiba volt...
Most már az “Igazat” keresem...
Mert az “Igazi” szárnyakat ad, s aztán letépi rólad, az “Igaz” odaadja a sajátját, ha zuhanni kezdesz… Az “Igazi” megcsókolja a kezed, az “Igaz” megfogja… Az “Igazi” álmodik veled, az “Igaz” virraszt melletted...
Az “Igaziba” belehalsz, az “Igaz” meghal érted, ha kell...
Ha kérhetnék az Istentől magam számára valami szépet és nagyot, azt kérném, hogy adjon nekem is egy egyszerű kicsi házat, négy szobával, vadszőlős tornáccal, öreg körtefával. Mohos legyen a teteje, s olyan kicsi legyen, hogy ne férjen el benne izgalom, perpatvar, békétlenség. Csak én s az, akit szeretek…”
