“Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.”

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”
— Meryl Streep

“Confucian philosophy is such that even at the risk of losing one’s individual autonomy, by choosing fellowship of like-minded companions, people will develop together, and through each other will deepen and broaden one’s selfhood. It is also interesting to note that the Confucian idea of maintaining personal identity is based solely on continually opening the self to others. Involvement with others is required for self-development and this belief in the importance of establishing fellowship with others can be summed up in this quote by Confucius; “Wishing to establish oneself, one establishes others; wishing to enlarge oneself, one enlarges others.””

People are living like somnambulists; mechanical is their life, unconscious is their behavior. They are not aware who they are, they are not aware what they are doing, they are not aware where they are going. Their life is accidental, a driftwood.

searching for the truth

searching for the truth

are you ever quiet sometimes and thinking about life and you feel this like… spark or something it’s like a miniature version of the excitement you feel before a party or something you’ve been waiting for and it’s this feeling of change and growth not only for you but for the world like everything is clicking in the “right” direction that these transgressions and challenges and pitfalls and mistakes and history will come to term and the influence of goodness will finally have its light. I think of it like a seedling sprouting it grows slowly and slowly from seed pushing through the earth spreading its leaves but sure enough it is growing and soon flourishing absorbing sunlight and will eventually mature into its rightful beauty.

I am pushing through the earth, slowly and surely, but I will get there.
