The purpose of this glorious life…

Dutch version / Nederlandse versie: Het doel van dit glorieuze leven…

    The purpose of this glorious life is not simply to endure it ,
    but to soar , stumble and flourish as you learn to fall in love
    with existence.
    We were born to live my dear not to merely exist ..

            High recognitions . . . successive earthly lives

            Purplerays

            “Human beings are susceptible not only to good influences, but also to bad ones.
            Everyone knows what is good and what is evil. Good and evil influences have
            a decisive effect on successive earthly lives! Because the way human beings act
            in this present life shapes their future existence!”

            – Roselis von Sass (Atlantis, The End of a Continent)
            The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message”
            (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

            Martin Heidegger Quotes

            Quoteliv

            Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.

            Everyone is the other and no one is himself.

            Why are there beings at all, instead of Nothing?

            The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking.

            Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man.

            Making itself intelligible is suicide for philosophy.

            If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life – and only then will I be free to become myself.

            Martin Heidegger

            Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set…

            There is no human being on earth capable of declaring with certitude who he is.

             


            Léon Bloy,
            the French novelist, critic, polemicist, poet, and philosophical pamphleteer reasoned,
            “Every man is on earth to symbolize something he is ignorant of,”

            or more pointedly,

            “There is no human being on earth capable of declaring with certitude who he is.”

            Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

            Existence in the non-existent and non-existence in the existence

            Our existence, the world showing up for us and holding up a mirror

            I and Thou

            Living under Russian occupation


            “Living under occupation is the same as returning to the time of the USSR,
            now we are experiencing the same as then,
            as written in history textbooks. There is nothing.”

            Beauty isn’t skin deep or a certain skin tone or size or specific weight

            Logic tells us we are just as good as the next person.
            Just as smart in our ways.
            Beauty isn’t skin deep or a certain skin tone or size or specific weight.
            Success isn’t defined by money alone.
            Talent is a perspective.
            Love isn’t the whipped cream on top of the coffee.

            Quote of the week

            to Accommodate to the short-term gain ~ to serve the gods of profit and production

            “I know that many thoughtful scientists are deeply disturbed that their organisations are becoming fronts for industry . . .
            The tailoring, the screening of basic truth, is done not to suit any party line
            but to accommodate to the short-term gain,
            to serve the gods of profit and production.”

            Yulia Tymoshenko: We are in World War Three already

            Ms Tymoshenko, who is the first and so far only woman to serve as prime minister of Ukraine, said:

            “We are in World War Three already,
            as there are now 50 countries behind Ukraine.
            We need more weapons
            to ensure that we crush the Russian army on Ukrainian territory.
            That will be the end of Putin’s regime,
            because the Russian people will not tolerate such a defeat.”

            Optimism & morality of hope

            A morality of hope lives in the belief that we can change the world for the better,
            and without certain theological beliefs it is hard to see where hope could come from, if not from optimism.
            Optimism and hope are not the same.
            Optimism is the belief that the world is changing for the better;
            hope is the belief that, together, we can make the world better.
            Optimism is a passive virtue, hope an active one.It needs no courage to be an optimist,
            but it takes a great deal of courage to hope.The Hebrew Bible is not an optimistic book.
            It is, however, one of the great literatures of hope.

            ~ Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, from his book, To Heal a Fractured World

            Human experience maintained in a fragile existence

            … our human experience continues to be maintained in such a fragile existence that could end at any moment and without notice.
            Every waking moment we are embarking upon the unknown.
            Whether or not we are even conscious of our own living
            and dying is another individual matter,
            whether or not to believe there might be a presence in an afterlife,
            or simply presume that whatever is, just is,
            without ever a question about what awaits us on the other side.

            When I started to pay careful attention to things


            ”When I started to notice the little things around me,
            I realized that I always berating myself.
            Not being like others,
            not being like the brilliant minds,
            not having talent.
            But when I started to pay careful attention to things,
            I realized I do have a talent..”

            Our real self ever perfect and free


            “Our real self, the spirit, is ever perfect and free, but we have forgotten that.
            So we identify with our present experience of bondage and consequently suffer in countless ways.
            Our situation is like someone who is asleep and dreaming that he is being tortured and beaten…
            He need not placate, overpower, or escape his torturers.
            He needs only to wake up.

            People need people


            People need people,
            we just have to pray that people choose the right people
            and don’t let the good get beaten down into invisibility
            which is the cruelest state to put a soul in by the scum of the earth:
            wolves in sheep’s clothing.

            ”Just as water rapidly eroded the banks of the mighty Colorado River

            Courage, Fear, and our vulnerability

            My Diary Pages

            Without courage, we can not practice any virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest.

            Maya Angelou

            Life is a strange, yet beautiful composition of laughter and tears, joy and sorrows, love and loss, struggle and stumble, success and failure, expectations and disappointments and a lot more.. It is completely perfect with all its ingredients and flavours, nothing is out of context.

            We are living in a time of “disconnection” — more importantly, a disconnection with our authentic selves and emotions. We don’t embrace any emotion as is, and identify it as either “good” or “bad”. Therefore, we know none at its core level. We usually mask our genuine emotion just to fit-in the society we live in. For example, it can be embarrassing for us to talk about our fears, while being “fearless” is the ideal term to be…
