Fooling ourselves (2)

How can we trust ourselves
If we are not even honest to ourselves

This belief in ourselves
Is broken by the first lie

Then self-cheating starts…

Forgive and forget

We all have mistakes and weaknesses in us
We do bad and good things
Nobody is perfectly good
No one is perfectly bad

Life shows us the direction
Though we may have to go through many chambers
That are painful and unpleasant
We are all in the process of becoming, in the making

Let’s not pigeonhole any human being
To judge, to condemn him as he is at the moment
For time and tests of life will change him
Like the waves of the sea breaking at the shore to form the rock

God always gives us new chances
To learn from mistakes, to become a real man
That’s how we should treat each other
Always giving us new chances

That is true forgiveness and forgetting…

Control and power

In the roots of the ego
Hides a great secret
Insatiable greed
Control over the whole world
For more and more
Over people and nations
Without a will of their own
As obedient servants, puppets
Human beings as possession
Every means is justified for it
To operate from darkness
To banish heart and light
Greed without limits
A mirror to oneself
Narcissistic love
A power play without equal
A shadow existence
Unconscionable action
Bloody wishes
Waiting to be fulfilled

Who rests in this ego? …

Reward and punishment or carrot and stick

We reward and punish ourselves
But that which is within us
Rewarding and punishing
That is not us

It is our ego and mind…

Self-deception

It comes on tiptoe
Sneaking up on us
Like a predator on its victim
While we’re the last to notice it…
