Caring about what others think – Lao Tzu Quote

lao tzu quote image picture inspirational quote care about what others think alway prisoner

  1. Other people really don’t care as much as you think. People tend to spend very little time thinking outside of themselves actually. Its a sad truth, but, people are generally ego-centric and think about most things in terms of “ME”. Sorry to break it to you, but people spend very little time thinking about you at all.
  2. People and their thoughts are constantly changing. Even if they think badly of you at the moment, there is a good chance they will forget or think differently in the future. So it doesn’t really matter.
  3. Its impossible to please everybody. This is a simple fact.
  4. Other people don’t have to live with your choices, but you do.
  5. Life is too short.

“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner” – Lao Tzu

We All Have Our Flaws

The ego lives through comparison. How you are seen by others is often how you see yourself.
When I criticise or condemn another it makes me feel bigger, more superior. These are egoic patterns that are often hard to break. Most of the time, the things that bother us about other people are actually reflections of your our internal issues, which is why they are so apparent to us. At times when you find yourself criticising others, ask, “what is it in me that needs to change?”
First we must become aware of these mental processes, and then we slowly drop them.

Don’t wait to start living

Lao tzu quotes a good traveller has no fixed plans waiting to start livingThe “waiting to start living” syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state. You don’t have to wait for something “meaningful” to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning and joy in the here-and-now than you will ever need.

A reversal of your priorities comes about when the main purpose for doing what you do becomes the doing itself, or rather, the current of consciousness that flows into what you do. That current of consciousness is what determines quality. Another way of putting it, in any situation and in whatever you do, your state of consciousness is the primary factor: the situation and what you do is secondary. Future success is dependent upon and inseparable from the consciousness out of which the actions emanate. That can be either the reactive force of the ego or the alert attention of the awakened consciousness. All truly successful action comes out of the field of alert attention, rather than from ego and conditioned, unconscious thinking.

The Noble Purpose of Suffering

meditation-spiritual-suffering-path-quote

Suffering has a noble purpose, the evolution of consciousness and the burning up of ego.
The ego says, I should not have to suffer, and that makes you suffer so much more.

It is a distortion of the truth.

Your soul’s purpose is to transform.
As long as you avoid suffering, you slow to process of transformation, because the resistance creates more ego. When you accept suffering, however, there is an acceleration of that process which is brought about by the fact that you suffer cautiously. The fire of suffering becomes the light of consciousness.

martin luther king quote image i have decided to stick with love

 

There a few people, every now and then, that dream so big, that  love so deeply and work so hard that they can actually change the world. Martin Luther King Jr, an iconic leader in the African-American civil rights movement, was one of these people. A charismatic figure, he championed the ideals of loving your neighbour as yourself and loving your enemies as well. He refused any violence, instead insisting that you pray for your enemies and bless them instead of hating them.  Continue reading Martin Luther King Jr – Love, Peace, and Unity
