V

Most thinking is worrying

Trying to get rid of sorrow

you remain in sorrow. You can't end sorrow by reducing it or running away from it. Thru relationships, drinks, drugs, pleasures, activities, beliefs, fantasies, dreams, etc, etc, etc. Grieve!
Don't seek relationships that are harmful.

Dream

The past was a dream.
Today is a stream
of memories of you.
Tomorrow never comes
but dreams come true.
And I love you!

Is it possible to be free of self-interest?

No, I don't think so. I think therefore I am. Or: I think therefore I am not free.

Love is not self-pity

Be brave. Be strong. Be happy.

Really? Well, you have to find out for yourself.

So many fears

So many escapes.

Love is not resentful

It does not keep a record of wrongs.

Can one be hurt deeply by an insult?

Does an insult have any absolute significance?

Is it possible to live without a self-image?

And not be hurt again? What is the value of a self-image that one does not respect anyway?

You were everything

I was not.

Seeking, seeking, seeking

What is loneliness?

What brings isolation and loneliness about?

The end

the beginning

When love is gone

To be empty is to be free. Emptiness is freedom.

A thing called love

Can you sacrifice your pride and your reputation for the sake of love? Or is there love at all?

The sun is shining again.

Is there such a thing as eternal love?

How to stop hurting

Forget and forgive. Or forgive and forget.

Is there a motive behind true love?

Can one love without motive? Without expecting anything in return?

Understand it

Don't try to escape from it.

High kicks

I just realized that doing high kicks regularly is one of the better ways of keeping myself warm, fit, and strong, and of improving my balance. Without leaving the safety and comfort of my place. Just don't overdo it or you won't have enough energy left for other things.

Addiction

The more you get it the more you need it.

Relationship

To be is to be related. Nobody can live in isolation.

There's only One Way

It's called No Way. Wu Wei for those who speak Chinese. Negation of the Way. There's no Authority in heaven or in hell. Just beware of your neighbor's dog.

Don't seek the truth

Be truthful. Observe yourself. Experience yourself. Know yourself.

More or less

That's why I have a manager so I don't become jobless or pennyless.
It pays to hire one.
