“ If I think you are a good person, I will not see you the way you are, I'll see you the way I like it. If I think you are a bad person, immediately I'll start seeing things which don't exist... Only if you see everything the way it is you are in touch with reality. ”

Until you are happy with who you are, you will never be happy with what you have.
only when a human being is in a very extended periods of joyfulness, blissfulness, he will stretch himself to the limits & do what he could do to the fullest. When he's in competition, when he's in fear of failure, he will only do little better than somebody else. So, the human genius is completely missing today. You're destroying the human genius
If I say something which is not in your present level of experience, what are the option you have? You can believe it or you can disbelieve it. If you believe what I say, have you gotten any closer to reality? Or if you disbelieve what I say, have you gotten any closer to reality?
People are running, but there is no place in the world to which they can flee to escape themselves. Ultimately, each one must face himself.
I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
