Self-cheating


We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet

Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?

Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?

Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?

Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?

It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…

How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…

Learning to be Thankful


 

 

When we have lost our jobs
We start to see what we had

When we have lost our freedom
Only then we start to appreciate it

When we have lost stability of our life
Only then we understand its meaning

When we think we are lost
Then we are really lost

As we think
So we become

When we think that each thunderstorm will pass
No wind can treat us like a leaf

When all is back to normal
We are aware – in thankfulness what we have…

Understanding rises out of problems
Is medicine to make us aware of our own value:
We are all human beings
Children of God
Have to live in harmony together
To bring out of us: humanity, thankfulness
